DUBAI - The United Arab Emirates said on Thursday it was ending the mission of North Korea's non-resident ambassador and terminating its own envoy's services in Pyongyang, the foreign ministry said in a statement carried by state news agency WAM.



The UAE would also stop issuing new visas or company licenses to North Korean citizens, WAM added.



Several thousand North Korean workers reside in the US-allied Gulf region, mainly working on construction sites.
