After forty years of diplomatic relations, Botswana has ended diplomatic relations with North Korea. Botswana made the decision to cut ties after the United Nations released a report on crimes against humanity taking place in North Korea. The foreign ministry of Botswana released a statement expressing sympathies to North Korean citizens facing human rights violations. North Korea has yet to make a statement in response to the ended diplomatic relationship.
