There is no way North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could stay out of the news for too long. For here comes yet another weird diktat from the despot ordering North Korean men and women to have their hairdo in the same style as the former and his wife.

The latest decree requires men to keep their hair no longer than 0.8 inches and cut their hair in a similar fashion to Kim Jong-un’s eccentric trademark swept-back bouffant with shaved sides aka the “ambitious” style so as to pay homage to him, The Sun reported.

While in the past at least the top of the “ambitious” style could be left longer, now even the top is cut to 2 cm or less. Moreover, young women have also been ordered to copy Kim’s wife Ri Solju’s bob cut hairdo.

This has come as good news for those in hairdressing profession with people making a beeline for the barber shops, although most of them are complying with orders lest they should be persecuted.

Chinese newspaper The Chosun Ibo reports that so as to enforce the crackdown on long hair that University students are walking around with scissors and cutting off the hair of offenders.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has announced the immediate suspension of nuclear and missile tests, media reports said on Saturday.

“From April 21, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” Efe quoted Kim as saying.

North Korea will also “shut down a nuclear test site in the country’s northern side to guarantee transparency in suspending nuclear tests,” the report added.

Having established a nuclear deterrent, North Korea can now turn to overhauling its economy, Kim said.

Pyongyang’s move comes ahead of Kim’s April 27 summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries.

The last in-person talks between the leaders of North and South Korea took place 11 years ago.

What will be the first-ever encounter between the leaders of North Korea and the US is expected to happen in late May or early June.

“North Korea has agreed to suspend all Nuclear Tests and close up a major test site. This is very good news for North Korea and the World — big progress! Look forward to our Summit,” Trump wrote on Twitter.  IANS
