Japan strongly supports the new U.S. sanctions against North Korea, told RIA Novosti the representative of the press service of the foreign Ministry of Japan.

«The Japanese government strongly supports America imposed new sanctions as measures to strengthen the US pressure on North Korea. Our country is still in close cooperation with the United States and other interested countries and is considering further steps to ensure the kind of pressure on North Korea could be the most effective for solving complex problems», — said the Agency interlocutor.

Earlier it became known that the United States imposed new sanctions in countering nuclear and missile programmes of the DPRK against 16 individuals, nine legal entities and six ships. Among those under sanctions to physical persons and legal entities, registered in China, Russia and Abkhazia.

In the notes of the U.S. Treasury notes that companies and individuals targeted by the sanctions, Russia and China were acting on behalf of the North Korean corporations, not Russian or Chinese. In the sanctions list includes the Ministry of oil industry of DPRK.

Under the sanctions were registered in Beijing the company Chengxing Trading Co. Ltd. and Dandong Jinxiang Trade Co., Ltd., which, according to the Agency, from January 1, 2013 to June 1, 2017 has exported products worth more than $ 68 million in North Korea and imported goods from North Korea worth more than $ 19 million.

The U.S. Treasury has called on the authorities and companies of China and Russia to cease interactions with these individuals and companies for full compliance with UN resolutions.

The new US sanctions, which were employees of the consulates of North Korea in Primorye, don’t be frightened, and do not interfere with the representatives of the diplomatic mission told RIA Novosti the representative of the Consulate General of Korea in Vladivostok. But the head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev said that the US sanctions against the DPRK are not timely and dangerous on the background of the fragile dialogue between Seoul and Pyongyang.
