UAE cuts ties with North Korea, stops visas to its nationals

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.

The ministry says the measures come within the context of its obligation as a responsible member of the worldwide community to join the effort to stop North Korea's proliferation of nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program.

Within this context, the MoFAIC announces additional measures, including stopping issuing entry visas for North Korean citizens and ceasing new business licences for North Korean companies wishing to operate in the UAE.

The United States on Thursday welcomed the United Arab Emirates' decision to break ties with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.

The ministry reiterates that the UAE looks forward to a unified global front against N. Korea's nuclear weapons and missile programme.

The move by the UAE follows similar policy changes from Kuwait and Qatar, which already have blocked visas to the country, limiting North Korea's ability to evade sanctions and make money off the laborers it sends to work in Middle Eastern nations. North Korean laborers working overseas are one of the major sources of foreign currency for Pyongyang.

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.
