The announcement was made in a notice issued by the protocol department of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, which said the Malaysian Embassy in the DPRK had been informed of the decision.

The DPRK Foreign Ministry hoped that the Malaysian Embassy and the Malaysian Foreign Ministry would properly settle the dispute arising from the murder of a DPRK citizen in Malaysia, said the notice.

Pyongyang wants to see the case properly addressed “from the goodwill stand of setting store by and developing bilateral relations,” the notice added.

In the period, Malaysian diplomats and citizens “may work and live normally under the same conditions and circumstances as before,” it said. Enditem
