The United Nation (UN) Security Council has adopted Resolution 2428 to impose sanction measures over arms and other embargoes on South Sudan.

In response, Japan revised Appended Table 3-2 of the Export Trade Control Order (Cabinet Order No.378 of 1949; hereinafter referred to as the “Export Order”) and added South Sudan to the list of the areas subject to strict export control (areas against which arms and other embargoes have been imposed by the UN Security Council) in accordance with the resolution. This revision was approved by the Cabinet on April 9, 2019.
