Japan is considering further sanctions on North Korea and might push for a fresh UN Security Council resolution if Pyongyang's nuclear test is confirmed, Japan's foreign minister said on Monday.
"The prime minister's office has been working on options for additional sanctions over the past two or three days," Taro Aso told reporters. "So probably Japan would take those actions, but it would have to decide which options to take," he said.
