Japan to ease NKorea sanctions once kidnap probe starts
(05-29 18:11)

Tokyo will lift some of its sanctions on North Korea when the reclusive state begins a promised investigation into the kidnapping of Japanese nationals, a government spokesman said Thursday.
"Japan has decided to lift special restrictions on travel by people, reporting requirements on remittances... as well as the ban on North Korea-registered vessels entering Japanese ports for humanitarian purposes, when North Korea launches a special investigation committee,'' said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga. --AFP
