Cape Breton Post - - World -

DUBAI, United Arab Emi­rates — The United Arab Emi­rates says it will stop is­su­ing new visas to North Korean labour­ers, be­com­ing the lat­est Gulf country to cut back on ties to Py­ongyang amid ten­sions between North Korea and the U.S.

The an­nounce­ment by the UAE For­eign Min­istry on Thurs­day night did not ad­dress the thou­sands of North Korean labour­ers al­ready work­ing in the Emi­rates.

The an­nounce­ment said that the UAE would pull its non-res­i­dent am­bas­sador to North Korea as well.

The state­ment said the UAE “looks for­ward to a uni­fied global front against North Korea’s nu­clear weapons and mis­sile pro­gram.”
