Japan shouldn't slap sanctions on North Korea: China


Beijing, Sep 2: China has advised Japan not to impose sanctions unilaterally on North Korea after it launched a test missile that flew over Japan, said reports.

A North Korea missile flying over its territory has left Japan fuming.

The test-firing Tuesday has intensified fear and reignited a debate in Japan about revising its defense plan after decades of pursuing more pacifist policies.

A statement from China's foreign ministry today says the minister also urged his Japanese counterpart a day earlier not to consider unilateral sanctions in response.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi said "unilateral sanctions are not in line with the spirit of the (UN) Security Council resolutions, and there is no basis in international law for them, (therefore) Japan should not make a misjudgment."

In a bid to defend the country from more North Korean weapons launches, Japan's Defence Ministry is seeking a record-high budget to add missile interceptors and other equipments.
