United Nations calls for calm between Malaysia and North Korea

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations on Tuesday called for calm between Malaysia and North Korea after Pyongyang barred Malaysians from leaving the country, sparking tit-for-tat action by Malaysia.

“We call for calm and for both parties to settle any differences through established diplomatic practice,” U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said.
