North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered officials to wage a tougher
epidemic prevention campaign in “our style” after he turned down some
foreign Covid-19 vaccines offered via the U.N.-backed immunization

Why would North Korea refuse the vaccines offered via an U.N. backed program? Is it because they don't trust the U.N.? Is it because of some other issues? I can't think of a good reason to refuse especially if it's free. Is it likely that they're going to accept, but not publicly in order to save face or something along that line?
