SEOUL, July 19 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Friday expressed support for Panama's recent seizure of a North Korean ship loaded with undeclared weapons and vowed close international cooperation to fully implement sanctions against its communist neighbor.

Earlier this week, Panama raided the 14,000-ton North Korean ship passing through the Panama Canal, apparently on its way home from Cuba with the suspected goods, according to local authorities. The ship was allegedly transporting contraband weapons in violation of U.N. sanctions.
