The ROK government said in a statement it would ban entry by foreign missile and nuclear experts if their visits to the DPRK were deemed to be a threat to the ROK's national interests.

Seoul's action came after the UN Security Council imposed new sanctions on the DPRK on November 30 aimed at cutting Pyongyang's annual export revenue by a quarter.
