UAE cuts diplomatic ties with North Korea, ends visas

UAE cuts diplomatic ties with North Korea, ends visas

Abu Dhabi- The United Arab Emirates has terminated the diplomatic presence of the UAE non-resident ambassador to the Republic of North Korea, and Pyongyang's ambassador to the country, in addition to taking other measures that consolidate the global community's work in that regard.

The drill will also include aircraft exercises, but North Korea is calling the drills an act of invasion and is threatening to launch a nuclear missile towards Guam.

The UAE government ended the mission of its non-resident ambassador to North Korea as well as that of Pyongyang's non-resident ambassador to the UAE, the government-run WAM news agency said.

Analysts say these measures will have some impact on Pyongyang.


The fate of the thousands of North Korean laborers already in the UAE remains up in the air.

South Korea and Japan reportedly have been pressuring the Middle Eastern countries to ban North Korean workers, whose income remittances directly benefit the regime of Kim Jong Un. The Emirati state news agency, WAM notes that the U.S. ally also has ended issuing visa for North Korean nationals.

Qatar, which is hosting the 2022 World Cup, said last month it was in full compliance with all United Nations sanctions and that it had stopped issuing visas to North Korean nationals following the previous round of sanctions in 2015.
