Uganda is said to have cut all police ties with North Korea and is now reviewing whether to suspend remaining military contracts with the regime.
South Korea's Foreign Ministry said it confirmed the move during talks on Monday in Seoul between Vice Foreign Minister Lim Sung-nam and James Mugume, permanent secretary of Uganda's Foreign Ministry.
Mugume stressed that North Korea should abide by UNSC resolutions and follow through with its previous commitment to denuclearize. Lim, meanwhile, thanked the Ugandan side and called for the African country's continued cooperation.
The action to sever police and military ties comes after a meeting between President Park Geun-hye and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni back in May, during which Museveni vowed to faithfully implement UNSC Resolution 2270.
