Malaysia Asks North Korea Diplomats to Leave Country: After North Korea broke relations, Malaysia said on Friday that it would order all its (North Korea) diplomats to leave the country within 48 hours. The diplomatic relations of the two countries have soured after Malaysia’s decision to extradite the US to a suspected criminal from North Korea. Hours before Malaysia’s announcement, North Korea said that it was “completely breaking diplomatic relations with Malaysia because it has taken a completely unfavourable step against North Korea under American pressure”.
North Korea described the allegations of money laundering as a “fabricated and sheer conspiracy” by the US and warned that Washington would “pay a fair price”. This is the latest incident of growing hostility between Washington and Pyongyang. North Korea has increased the pressure on the US Biden Administration over the nuclear deadlock. The Foreign Ministry of Malaysia called North Korea’s move as ‘Amitravat’.
Order will be issued
He said that the government would issue an order to leave all diplomatic staff of the North Korean embassy and their dependents within 48 hours. The ministry said that North Korea’s decision forced it to close its embassy in Pyongyang (Malaysia North Korea Issue). Foreign Minister Hishamuddin Hussain tweeted that all Malaysian diplomats had returned from North Korea after the embassy’s work was suspended in 2017.
Even tighter than America
On the other hand, North Korea condemned military exercise between the US and South Korea. Kim Yo Jong, sister of dictator Kim Jong Un (Kim Jong Un), warned that if he (America) wants to sleep peacefully for four years, then stay away from provocative steps. At the time of Jong’s statement, Austin and Foreign Minister Antoine Blinken arrived in Tokyo to visit Japan and South Korea. In response, US Defense Minister Lloyd Austin said that America is ready for war.
