- Spain asks North Korean Ambassador to leave the country.
- Ambassador has until the end of this month to comply.
- US President Trump is expected to urge world leaders to jointly confront North Korea.
The Spanish Foreign Ministry has issued a notice to the North Korean Ambassador to Spain asking him to leave spain by the end of the month as a result of his country's failure to renounce their nuclear weapons program.
"Today, the North Korean ambassador was summoned and was told of the decision to consider him as a persona non grata, therefore he must stop working and abandon the country before 30 September," the foreign ministry said in a statement.
It would be interesting to see how this move affects proceedings at the UN General meeting currently holding in New York where U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to urge world leaders to confront North Korea over their nuclear programme.
