The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the UAE has made a decision to stop issuing new visas to North Korean citizens and has stopped issuing licenses to North Korean companies.
The ministry reiterates that the UAE looks forward to a unified global front against N. Korea's nuclear weapons and missile programme.
US President Donald Trump had urged United Nations member states last month to turn up the pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons, using his maiden speech to the world body to address what he has said is the top global challenge. "There are many countries that are taking those steps that we have asked those countries to take".
The United Arab Emirates says it is stopping the issuance of entry visas for North Korean citizens.
A growing number of countries have also expelled North Korean diplomats and scaled back economic ties.
The move by the UAE follows similar policy changes from Kuwait and Qatar, which already have blocked visas to the country, limiting North Korea's ability to evade sanctions and make money off the laborers it sends to work in Middle Eastern nations.
South Korea and Japan have pressured Gulf states to stop employing North Korean workers, whose income goes towards remittances that benefit the regime in Pyongyang, according to diplomatic sources. "Visas to North Korean nationals will not be renewed", it said.
