South Korea said Thursday it will ban the entry of North Korean officials who fall under a U.N. travel restriction _ Seoul's first concrete move to enforce sanctions imposed for the North's nuclear test. Unification Minister Lee Jong-seok also said Seoul will control transactions and remittances relating to inter-Korean trade and investment with the North Korean officials, Yonhap news agency reported. A U.N. committee on the sanctions, passed in response to the North's Oct. 9 nuclear test, has been working to outline how they will actually be implemented.
