North Korea is preparing all foreign diplomats to leave the country on Friday. They have also urged the missions to leave Piyongyong immediately, reports CNN.
The North Korean government is taking this step after keeping these diplomats in quarantine for over a month.
Earlier on Monday, North Korea launched two short-range projectiles off its east coast in the country's first weapons test in three months.
Experts have said that evacuating foreign nationals may be an additional step in accordance with this incident.
Amidst this chaos, North Korea is fighting with the grave crisis of coronavirus where the country is under lockdown. The airports and ports of the country are sealed off.
