Hanoi (VNA) - Singapore has revoked work permits held by all citizens from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the country, according to a Singapore’s report submitted to the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

In the report, the Singaporean government said it will not grant new work passes to nationals of the DPRK, in line with the UN Resolution 2397 which imposed sanctions over the DPRK.

The resolution, adopted in December 2017, calls for the UN members to repatriate DPRK nationals earning income in their jurisdictions within 12 months and bans nearly 90 percent of oil export activities to the country.-VNA
