    North Korea is to cut its only remaining diplomatic channel with the US after Washington blacklisted the North’s leader Kim Jong-Un. Pyongyang added that all matters between the two countries will be handled under its "wartime laws."

    The decision has been reported by the state KCNA news agency and spells potentially bad news for two American citizens who are being held by the North. The pair was jailed after being convicted of crimes against the state.

    "The Republic will handle all matters arising between us and the United States from now on under our wartime laws, and the matters of Americans detained are no exception to this,” KCNA reported, as cited by Reuters.

    In the past, the North has indicated that wartime laws would mean that detainees would not be released on humanitarian grounds.
