North Korea's warning on diplomats 'largely ignored'

Help

Foreign embassies in the North Korean capital Pyongyang have played down warnings from Kim Jong-un's government over their safety.

On Friday, North Korea warned it would not be able to guarantee the safety of embassy staff in the event of a war.

But no foreign embassies have announced plans to evacuate, and the UK and Russian embassies have said they have no immediate plans to shut their embassies.
