Dec. 4 (UPI) -- All six North Korean restaurants that once operated in Cambodia have shuttered, according to a South Korean press report.

Yonhap's correspondent in Hanoi, Vietnam, reported Wednesday the restaurants might have closed following requests from Cambodia, a U.N. member state, to Pyongyang.

A Cambodia-based source told the South Korean news agency the request from Phnom Penh included demands all North Korea's state-sanctioned guest workers be repatriated.

Operations stopped at key restaurants in the Cambodian capital and in Siem Reap, a popular tourist destination and the site of the ruins of Angkor Wat, on Saturday, according to the report.

South Korean expatriates in Cambodia also told Yonhap North Korean workers are expecting to return home, and that the sign outside the North Korean restaurant in Phnom Penh, Arirang, has been covered with white paint.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

They were pretty naff anyway to be honest. Or maybe I was just unlucky on my couple of visits.
