South Korea will bolster inspections of cargo heading to North Korea, a news report said, an apparent move toward meeting calls for Seoul to take more action in line with a UN resolution sanctioning the communist nation for it recent nuclear test. South Korea's Yonhap news agency, without citing any specific source, said Seoul had decided to increase inspections and were also reconsidering which products would be allowed to be shipped to North Korea. The Unification Ministry couldn't immediately confirm the report. South Korea is the North's No. 2 trade partner, as the two sides have made historic reconciliation moves since the first-and-only 2000 summit between their leaders.
