Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and Mizuho Corporate Bank have suspended transactions with Macau-based Banco Delta Asia SARL, designated by the United States as a major facilitator of North Korean money-laundering activities, sources said Thursday.

The transactions by the Japanese banks, which both have U.S. branches, were limited with Banco Delta Asia and the suspension has not affected customers, the banks said.
