Geneva : Organisers of the World Economic Forum in Davos say they have revoked an invitation to a delegation from North Korea in the wake of the secretive Communist country’s latest nuclear test, reports AP.

  The WEF said in a statement that an invitation had been extended to North Korea in the autumn “in view of positive signs coming out of the country.” The North Koreans had accepted the invitation. The statement said, however, that following the Jan. 6 nuclear test, claimed to be of a hydrogen bomb, the North Korean delegation would be subject to “existing and possible forthcoming sanctions.” “Given the recent discussions, we cannot maintain the invitation we have issued last year,” the WEF said. The West and several countries have been looking for ways to punish North Korea following the January 6 test.
