According to the broadcaster, Japan intends to convince the UN security Council to adopt new sanctions against North Korea, so she is waiting for support from Russia and China. While in Tokyo noted that Russia and China, unlike the United States, take the position of diplomatic dialogue. That is why Japan started to consider introducing its own sanctions against North Korea.
