The UK temporarily closed its Embassy in North Korea

Diplomats explained this by restrictions on entry into the country imposed by Pyongyang.

The UK closed its Embassy in North Korea, and all its diplomats left the country.

This was announced on Thursday by the British Ambassador, while Pyongyang maintains strict entry restrictions in an attempt to prevent an outbreak of the coronavirus.

North Korea has closed its borders and insists that the country has not recorded a single case of the disease, which originated in neighboring China and has since spread around the world.

The closure of the Embassy is temporary and is caused by the fact that Pyongyang’s “restrictions on entry into the country have made it impossible to rotate staff and maintain the operation of the Embassy,” a foreign office spokesman said.
“The British Embassy in Pyongyang has temporarily closed since May 27, 2020, and its entire diplomatic staff has now left the DPRK”
