UAE terminates North Korean diplomatic mission, ends visas

The UAE terminated its diplomatic presence of the UAE non-resident ambassador to the Republic of North Korea and Pyongyang ambassador to the country on Thursday.

The UAE would also stop issuing new visas or company licences to North Korean citizens, WAM added.

The Ministry said the UAE has developed an executive framework in collaboration with state departments to apply UN Security Council resolutions on North Korea and its nuclear programme, primarily resolutions 2371 and 2375.

U.S. President Donald Trump urged United Nations member states last month to turn up the pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons, using his maiden speech to the world body to address what he has said is the top global challenge.

September saw Kuwait, Mexico, Peru and, most recently, Spain, expelling their North Korean ambassadors, with Italy following suit in October.

The moves are in line with UNSC Resolutions that have sought the reduction of staff at North Korea's overseas missions and with requests from the USA government for countries to reduce diplomatic relations with the DPRK.

UAE becomes the third Middle Eastern country to also announce visa restrictions for North Korean citizens following similar moves by Qatar and Kuwait, partly aimed at restricting the ability for North Korean laborers to operate in the region and earn currency for the regime.

United Nations sanctions against North Korea were last month expanded to include North Korean guest workers, along with textiles and a cap on oil exports.
