S. Korea joins U.N. in imposing financial restraints on Pyongyang
SEJONG, Feb. 7 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will designate additional personnel and organizations linked to North Korea on its list subject to restraints on financial transactions, a move in line with the U.N's recent decision to toughen sanctions on Pyongyang, the finance ministry said Thursday.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously voted last month to approve a resolution condemning the North's Dec. 12 satellite launch, which the outside world suspected was a cover to test the country's ballistic missile technology.
