SEOUL, March 6 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will announce its own North Korea sanctions this week after the United Nations Security Council overwhelmingly voted to impose stronger sanctions on the belligerent nation, a South Korean official said Sunday.

The sanctions will likely include banning the entry of ships to South Korean ports from third-party countries that have been to North Korea and blacklisting more organizations and personnel related to the North's weapons of mass destruction, the official said on the condition of anonymity.

The measures will be made public by the Prime Minister's Office of the South early this week, the official added.
