S. Korea welcomes Canadian sanctions on N. Korea over ship sinking
SEOUL, Oct. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korea welcomed a set of anti-North Korean sanctions that Canada announced Friday over March's sinking of one of its warships, saying the move shows Canada's firm position against Pyongyang's deadly provocation.

The sanctions call for a ban on trade and financial transactions with North Korea and bars Canadian nationals and entities from making fresh investments or transferring technology to the communist nation. They also call for halting exchanges with Pyongyang, except for human rights, consular affairs and security and inter-Korean issues.
