South Korea mulling unilateral sanctions against North in case UN delays action
12 Oct 2016

South Korea is considering unilateral sanctions against rival North Korea in response to the latter’s recent nuclear test, the fifth and the most powerful so far. Seoul will reportedly go ahead with its set of sanctions if the United Nations delays adoption of a resolution against the reclusive state.

The Kim Jong-un regime in Pyongyang was strongly condemned for carrying out the nuclear test early in September. The UN, along with the US, South Korea and Japan proposed tougher sanctions to deter the country from pursuing its nuclear programme.
