Japan Welcomes US Re-List of North Korea as State Sponsor of Terrorism

TOKYO – Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Tuesday that his government supported the decision of the United States to re-include North Korea on the list of the state sponsors of terrorism, a move aimed at putting more pressure on Pyongyang.

“I welcome and support (the designation) as it raises the pressure on North Korea,” Abe said to the press during his arrival at Kantei, the Prime Minister’s official residence, hours after US President Donald Trump made the announcement.

The measure which returns Pyongyang to the status of a “state sponsor of terrorism” will be implemented, along with the new unilateral sanctions by Washington, expected to be announced on Tuesday to raise pressure on the regime over its nuclear development program.

Trump announced the measure at the White House on Monday, saying that the decision to re-include North Korea on the list “should have happened years ago,” and urged the North Korean regime to put an end to its illegal nuclear and ballistic missiles development.

North Korea was dropped from the list in 2008 before the White House hinted weeks ago that Trump was considering re-including Pyongyang on the state sponsors of terrorism list, which also counts Iran, Syria and Sudan among the designated countries.
