But both Malaysia and Singapore have revoked visa-free access for North Koreans this year, in light of the deadly attack on Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, that took place in the Kuala Lumpur airport.

"The two ministers shared the view that North Korea's escalating provocations, including the two sets of ballistic missile launches this year, constitute serious violations of global norms, posing a threat to the peace and security of the Asian and the entire worldwide community", the ministry said.

Investigators "confirmed the identity of the body as Kim Jong Nam based on the sample obtained from his child", said Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

In the wake of the suspected assassination, there have been concerns over the safety of Kim Jong Nam's son, who called his uncle Kim Jong Un a dictator in a past media interview.

"I want to officially confirm it again that the body is Jong-nam's", he reiterated.

Those with valid visas can stay, he said, adding that now there are a total of 315 North Korean nationals in Malaysia.

Kim Jong Nam had two wives and children living separately in Beijing and Macau, according to South Korea's intelligence agency.
