The Government of Ukraine has canceled the agreement as of 1986, which envisaged visa-free travel for citizens of North Korea, according to a decree signed by Vladimir Groisman and published on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers.

The Government has approved a decree on termination of the agreement between the Government of the USSR and the Government of the Democratic People's Republic on mutual trips as of 22.01.1986, the report says.

According to the Cabinet from now visa regime will be imposed on the DPRK that "will strengthen border control and prevent the unacceptable persons from entering Ukraine."

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs must now inform the Government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on the termination of the agreement as of 1986.
