Why it’s time to rethink the looming ban on North Koreans working overseas

The measure, scheduled for December 22, will harm regular people and work against U.S. interests

Today is June 21, 2019. Six months remain until the clause of the UNSC resolution 2397 calling for the deportation of all DPRK nationals working abroad kicks in.

While talking to colleagues and friends, I’ve noticed that there are two major groups of people who support the measure. The first one is politicians, who believe that they can make Pyongyang denuclearize.
