Oman Daily Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

DUBAI: The United Arab Emi­rates said on Thurs­day it was end­ing the mis­sion of North Korea’s non-res­i­dent am­bas­sador and ter­mi­nat­ing its own envoy’s ser­vices in Py­ongyang, ac­cord­ing to the of­fi­cial Twit­ter ac­count of state news agency WAM.

The UAE would also stop is­su­ing new visas or com­pany li­cences to North Korean cit­i­zens, WAM added. The UAE’s mea­sures are meant to im­ple­ment United Na­tions Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions 2371 and 2375, strength­en­ing sanc­tions against North Korea, the min­istry added.

The coun­cil adopted the res­o­lu­tions in Au­gust and Septem­ber in re­sponse to North Korea’s mis­sile launches and nu­clear tests in a bid to curb Py­ongyang’s sources of in­come in part by lim­it­ing oil exports to the coun­try. — Agen­cies
