North Korea bans smoking in public spaces: reports

North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly on Wednesday introduced smoking bans in some public places to provide citizens with “hygienic living environments,” state media KCNA reported.

The tobacco-prohibition law aims to protect the lives and health of North Koreans, KCNA added.

The law prohibits smoking in specific venues, such as political and ideological education centers, theatres and cinemas, and medical and public health facilities, KCNA said.
