Peru expels North Korea ambassador
Peru's foreign ministry stated North Korea has repeatedly violated United Nations Security Council sanctions resolutions, and has asked the ambassador to leave within five days, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported.
The announcement comes about a week after Mexico said it plans to expel its top North Korean envoy, and came the same day the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted the toughest sanctions against the Kim Jong Un regime, The Financial Times reported.
In Peru, government officials said North Korea is seriously threatening international peace and security, as well as stability in the world and Northeast Asia. ■
