The Mexican government on Thursday said it had declared the North Korean ambassador to Mexico, Kim Hyong Gil, persona non grata in protest at the Asian nation's recent nuclear activity.

In a statement, the government said it had given the ambassador 72 hours to leave Mexico in a step meant to express its "absolute rejection" of North Korea's actions, describing the actions as a grave threat to the region and the world.
