Somehow i dowt that N.korea gives a flying fcuk about the UN. The only country it cares about is china because its its only aly. China unfortunitly is really against any effective sanctions for fear of a fall of gov. and economic turmoil.
OK, I promise not to eat Alsation. Its a Guinea Pig eating environment for me till they stop pressing the little red buttons. There you go, done my bit for support of sanctions. PS.......do poodles count ? always hated them personally but, would like to eat one just to bring up in a cocktail party sometime !
Earlier, the government only considered providing logistic support, including fuel and water supplies to U.S. vessels to conduct inspections on North Korean cargo ships.
However, the situation may demand Japan do more because the resolution expected to be adopted at the Security Council likely will be limited to nonmilitary measures and the United States, including U.S. envoy to Japan Thomas Schieffer, has been asking Japan to provide "meaningful contribution."
"The logistic support alone will be too limited [of a contribution]. As the law to deal with contingencies in areas surrounding Japan will be applied, we'd better go into steps further allowed within the limt of the law," a senior government official said.
If Japan participates in inspections of North Korean vessels, they will be conducted based also on the Ship Inspection Law, said the government sources.
