THREATS OF NORTH KOREA: US to announce own sanction on N.Korea
The United States is likely to impose its own sanctions against North Korea following its fifth nuclear test last September.
Reports told that the US is planning a measure aimed at curbing North Korean companies' practice of dispatching laborers abroad in a bid to obtain hard currency. Sources said it originally tried to have the measure included in a UNSC sanctions resolution expected to be adopted on Wednesday, but it failed due to Chinese opposition.
The US will soon announce the details of its own sanction on North Korean firms suspected of sending laborers abroad. Arrangements are reportedly under way to coordinate policies on the measure with Japan and South Korea.
