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
program.

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?
