WASHINGTON: The United States Government on Thursday night welcomed the United Arab Emirates’ decision to break ties with North Korea over its nuclear weapons programme, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

The UAE announced on Thursday that it will terminate the missions of North Korea’s non-resident ambassador and its own non-resident envoy to the North Korean capital, Pyongyang and that it will stop issuing new visas and business licenses to North Koreans.

“Very happy to hear that,” the spokeswoman for the US State Department, Heather Nauert said during a press briefing. “There are many countries that are taking those steps that we have asked those countries to take,” Yonhap reported her as saying.
