BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government plans to implement new economic sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear program, German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung and broadcasters NDR and WDR reported on Tuesday.

The report cited the foreign ministry as saying that the planned measures were being coordinated with the chancellery and other government agencies and they would be implemented soon.

Specifically, Germany plans to ban North Korea's operation of a hostel and conference center at the site of the North Korean embassy in the center of Berlin, according to the report.
