NEW YORK, Sept 29 (Reuters) - North Korea now has the coronavirus "under safe and stable control," North Korea's U.N. ambassador, Kim Song, told the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

"Thanks to the far-sighted leadership of the government of the DPRK ... the anti-epidemic situation in our country is now under safe and stable control," said Kim, using the initials of his country's formal name - the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
