Japan has been reportedly reviewing some 40 countermeasures against a South Korean court's decision to sell off Nippon Steel Corporation's assets in South Korea, to compensate victims of wartime forced labor.
Japan's Mainichi Shimbun reported that the measures include raising tariffs, suspending remittance or visa issuance, and temporarily bringing back home the Japanese Ambassador to South Korea.
Also on the table are claiming compensation against the South Korean government, or filing a complaint to an international court for arbitration.
The Japanese daily said the Prime Minister's office has been discussing the measures with related ministries since last year.
