Cambodia has no plan to pull its diplomatic officials out of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) despite recently escalated tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Monday.

"We have no plan to evaluate our diplomatic officials in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, we let them work as usual," he told reporters.

His comment was made after the DPRK told foreign embassies last Friday to consider the possibility of evacuation if tensions flare up.

Koy Kuong added that the country also has not taken any measure to evaluate its laborers and students in South Korea. "We still think that it is just'the war of words' between the DPRK and the Republic of Korea," he said.

Some 19,850 Cambodian migrant workers are working in South Korea, according to the Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training, while the number of Cambodian students is unavailable.
