North Korea recalls ambassadors to China, Russia and the UN to the country


North Korea has recalled several of its key ambassadors back to the country for a joint meeting in the capital.
The meeting reportedly includes Ambassador Ji Jae-ryong, Ambassador Ja Song-nam and Ambassador Kim Hyong-jun, North Korea's top envoys to China, the United Nations and Russia respectively.
A government official told Yonhap News Agency that:
'North Korea seems to be hosting what appears to be a meeting of foreign diplomatic missions' chiefs after calling its ambassadors to major countries back to Pyongyang'.
The Ministry of Unification's spokesman Baik Tae-hyun said in a press briefing that the meeting may be part of North Korea's regular gathering of ambassadors.

He added:
'North Korea held the 43rd ambassadors' meeting in July 2015 and (the latest meeting) seems to be in line with that'.
However, there are rumors the meeting may be linked with the country's purported preparations for further military actions against the US and Guam, such as nuclear test or more missile launches.
