North Korea owes New York City more than $156,000 — in unpaid parking tickets.

NBC 4 in New York reported North Korea has piled up by more than 1,300 unpaid tickets going as far back as the 1990s.

But the North Koreans insist there has to be a mistake.

"It's not true," a man identifying himself as Jong Jo, secretary of the nation's UN Mission, said. "It is false. Whenever we have a ticket, we pay. Because, you know, if we have three tickets, the city does not allow us to renew their permission."

The three ticket rule refers to an understanding between the State Department and New York to allow the city the right to withhold diplomatic parking decals if a foreign country has collected three or more parking tickets on a vehicle, the station reported.

But North Korea isn't the only nation with unpaid parking tickets in the city. Syria, Iran, Russia and China owe more than $1 million in unpaid fines collectively, NBC 4 reported.
