Cambodia shuts down North Korean businesses to comply with UN sanctions

The Cambodian government has shut down all businesses operated by North Koreans in the country to comply with United Nations sanctions.

The Khmer Times, a newspaper based in Phnom Penh, reported Wednesday that authorities closed four restaurants in the capital and two in Siem Reap.

The government also closed Angkor Panorama Museum near the Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap. The museum, built and paid for by North Korea as a sign of friendship between the two states, was run by North Koreans since opening in 2015.
