The two Malaysian workers attached with United Nation's World Food Programme (WFP) have reportedly managed to find their way to Beijing from North Korea.
According to The Star Online
, a spokesperson from the non-profit organisation confirmed the news but declined to elaborate further.
The spokesperson also declined to mention whether the two workers would return to Malaysia or be posted somewhere else.
“The staff members are international civil servants and not representatives of their national government.
“They work on WFP’s programmes in North Korea,” the spokesperson was quoted by the news portal as saying.
The two workers were among the 11 who were stranded in Pyongyang after North Korea barred Malaysians
from leaving the country on Tuesday.
In retaliation, Malaysia, too, has barred North Koreans from leaving the country.
