North Korea Recalling Expats

This doesn’t bode well, in light of the recent skirmish between North and South Korea: “Vladnews agency, based in Vladivostok, reported that North Korean workers had left the town of Nakhodka en masse shortly after the escalation of tension on the Korean peninsula earlier this week. “Traders have left the kiosks and markets, workers have abandoned building sites, and North Korean secret service employees working in the region have joined them and left,” the agency reported.”

There are some 20,000 North Koreans working in Russia and many of them are now making their way back to the mother country.
