KUALA LUMPUR, March 31 (Reuters) - Malaysian Prime Minister
Najib Razak said he will not sever ties with North Korea, state
news agency Bernama reported on Friday, after a diplomatic row
between the two countries ended this week.
Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of the North's leader Kim
Jong Un, was murdered at Kuala Lumpur's airport on Feb. 13 in a
bizarre assassination using toxic nerve agent, sparking a row
between the two countries that had friendly relations before.
Three North Koreans wanted for questioning over the murder
left Malaysia on Friday along with the body of Kim Jong Nam
after Malaysia agreed a swap deal that saw nine Malaysians
allowed to return home from Pyongyang.
