Japan Backs US Decision to List North Korea as Terror Sponsor

TOKYO – Japan will support a decision by the United States to list North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told the media on Tuesday.

Abe said Japan will back the decision announced by US President Donald Trump on Monday, and added that it will increase pressure on North Korea to abandon its weapons program.

Pyongyang’s addition to the list of state sponsors of terrorism will be accompanied by new US sanctions on North Korea that are expected to be announced on Tuesday.

Japanese defense minister Itsunori Onodera warned that the US decision might be followed by retaliatory action from North Korea, and stressed on the need to be more vigilant.

While announcing the decision at a White House meeting with members of his Cabinet, Trump had said that the move should have happened years ago and urged the North Korean regime to end the development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

The White House in recent weeks had hinted that Trump was considering including North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism – which includes Iran, Syria and Sudan – from which it was dropped in 2008.
