EU to hold 'extraordinary meeting' over N.Korea


EU Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini will chair the meeting of the Political and Security Committee (PSC), in a bid to thrash out the bloc's possible next steps on the situation in North Korea, the European External Action Service said in a statement on Friday.

Mogherini, after meeting her international counterparts in the sidelines of the ASEAN Regional Forum in Manila, Philippines, has decided to call the meeting, Xinhua news agency quoted the statement as saying.

Mogherini's decision came one day after the Council of the EU broadened a sanction list targeting North Korea in response to its latest test-launch of ballistic missiles.

The list now includes 62 individual and 50 entities subject to an asset freeze and travel restrictions in the EU.
