Japan needs more cards for sanction to NorthKorea

In the Upper House of Japan, two ruling parties and one main opposing party agreeed to make efforts to approve a legal ban on specific ships' entering Japan's ports, which assumes North Korea's ships, following the already-approved revised foreign exchange-trade law.

One leader of the opposing party said "The abduction issue by Pyongyang is not the issue to be struggled between ruling and opposing parties. We have to cooperate". That makes sense. Abduction issue has to be dealt with across the boundaries of political parties.

In the last six nation talks, there was no advance about the nuclear development issue and abduction issue at all. That is due to that North Korea didn't concede at all.

A high-ranked officer of Pyongyang said "the abduction issue is related to the nuclear development issue and the advancement of the relationship between Pyongyang and Washington". If he meant that no advancement of nuclear development issue would give no solution of the abduction issue, we cannot approve that.


Tokyo has insisted the comprehensive solution of the nuclear development issue and the abduction issue. But the homecoming of the families of the abducted victims has to be carried out without condition as soon as possible.

The mental agony of the abductees and their families has increased. The investigation about the safety of the victims has not advanced.

In the Upper House of Japan, three big political parties insisted to put the economic sanction into effect against North Korea by the revised foreign trade law. Prime minister Koizumi is thinking carefully of the economic sanction against Pyongyang.

If Pyongyang won't try to solve the abduction issue in order to gain time, the possibility of the economic sanction will increase.

Japan's public opinion backs the government's policy. 78% of people regard the revised foreign trade law as a good one. The ration of people who answerd that the Japanese government's response in the abduction issue was not enough was 75%. 52% of their reason was that it didn't response strongly against North Korea.

Pyongyang criticized Japan's legal ban on specific ships' entering Japan's ports, saying "Japanese government is trying to prevent North Korean people from coming and going to their home country and meeting their family"

It is Pyongyang to have prevented the abuductee's families from coming to Japan. It has no right to blame Japan.
