Presidential Office Secretary-General Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) said on the sidelines of an international forum hosted by the Taiwan National Security Institute (TNSI) that the government was discussing in detail how to deal with North Korea following its latest missile test on Friday.

Wu said Taiwan was discussing measures in response to the newest sanctions against North Korea imposed by the UN Security Council through Resolution 2375.

The sanctions imposed on Monday include a ban on the supply, sale and transfer of all condensates (the liquid phase produced by the condensation of gas) and natural gas liquids to North Korea, as well as a ban on its exports of textiles.
