The 2 nations say money earned by North Korean migrant workers is allowing Pyongyang to continue its nuclear and missile programs.

"The UAE announces its full support to the new US strategy to deal with the Iranian policies undermining security and stability", WAM said on its twitter account. It has already halted issuing visas to North Koreans wishing to work there and sent back the North Korean ambassador.
