Following Brexit, North Korean embassy in Germany now running relations with EU

"Last minute" move comes amid broader reshuffle in DPRK foreign ministry

Pyongyang does not have an ambassador based at EU headquarters in Brussels, and relations between the DPRK and European Union had long been managed out of the country's embassy in London.
