Japan has decided to extend its unilateral sanctions against North Korea for another two years.
The Japanese government on Tuesday approved the extension during a Cabinet meeting, citing the North's failure to make efforts to abandon its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.
It also said there had been no progress on resolving the issue of Japanese nationals abducted by the North decades ago.
The sanctions were first imposed in 2006 after the regime's first nuclear test.
