Answer of Spokesperson for DPRK Foreign Ministry

Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on May 30, concerning the decision made at the meeting of National People's Congress of China on enacting the law to safeguard the state security in Hong Kong.

It is a legitimate step that China has adopted a decision for establishing and perfecting a legal system and an enforcement mechanism based on the Constitution of China and the Basic Law of Hong Kong with the purpose of safeguarding the state security in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region at the Third Session of the 13th National People's Congress.

In recent years, a grave situation is being created in Hong Kong, which leads to threatening the principle of "One Country, Two Systems" and the national security of China. This is the product of a plot by the outside force and its vassal forces which seek the division and disintegration of China by tarnishing the image of socialist country and fomenting and escalating a social disorder.

Since Hong Kong issue is an issue pertaining thoroughly to the internal affairs of China, any country or force has no rights to say this or that about the issue. We categorically oppose and reject the outside interference detrimental to the security and the social and economic development of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is an inseparable territory where the sovereignty of People's Republic of China is exercised and its Constitution is applied.

We fully support the measures taken by the Party and government of China for safeguarding the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of the country and achieving stability and prosperity of Hong Kong based on the policy of "One Country, Two Systems". -

Press Statement by Spokesperson for the National Coordination Committee for Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Recently, the United States is letting loose an unheard-of vociferation about “cyber threat” from the DPRK.

We know well that the ulterior intention of the United States is to tarnish the image of our state and create a moment for provoking us by employing a new leverage called “cyber threat” together with the issues of nukes, missiles, “human rights”, “sponsoring of terrorism” and “money laundering.”

The previous incidents of cyber-attack which the U.S. had linked to us were clearly proven to be the acts of international hackers, and even the experts in the U.S. have officially admitted them.

It is none other than the U.S. that does not hesitate to abuse even the modern civilization – the creation of humankind – as a means of plots and fabrications in a bid to taint the countries of their “disliking” with all sorts of slanders and disgrace.

Such farce by the U.S. is nothing new to us.

To put it clearly, our state has nothing to do at all with what is claimed by the U.S. to be a “cyber threat.”

The U.S. should be clearly aware that worthless and worn-out plots and fabrications invented continuously by themselves will no longer work against the international community.

Rodong Sinmun Calls for Consolidating Ideological and Cultural Position in Every Way

Pyongyang, May 26 (KCNA) -- It is an important requirement for bringing earlier the victory in the on-going frontal breakthrough to further consolidate the ideological and cultural position, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article, and goes on:

The on-going offensive for making a breakthrough head-on is a worthwhile struggle to open up a new broad avenue in socialist construction under the uplifted banner of self-reliance, and a great ideological campaign for consolidating our revolutionary position, class position in every way.

When the revolutionary idea and culture get dominance, the spirit of self-sustenance and self-reliance is fully displayed and miraculous successes and innovations admired by the peoples of the world are created.

The challenges and barriers to our revolutionary advance do not exist merely in the economic field. The imperialists' moves for ideological and cultural poisoning are getting evermore vicious to disintegrate us from within by benumbing our people's revolutionary consciousness, class consciousness and by shaking the foundation of our socialist system. If we fail to build the ideology and culture of our own style, it would entail irrevocable consequences.

At the historic Fifth Plenary Meeting of its Seventh Central Committee that set forth the idea on launching an offensive for making a breakthrough head-on, our Party stressed the need to wage an intensified campaign against anti-socialist and non-socialist practices and tighten moral discipline throughout society.

Success in strengthening our internal motive force in every way and creating socialist civilization depends on the struggle for consolidating the ideological and cultural position. -0-

Difference in Housing Problem between Socialist and Capitalist Societies


Pyongyang, May 27 (KCNA) -- The enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea in last February dealt with practical measures to propel the construction of houses in Pyongyang and local areas.

Under the third-stage project for sprucing up Samjiyon City, the framework for one hundred and tens of blocks of houses has been completed as of now. And hundreds of houses in tens of blocks sprung up in a mining village of Sinhong Workers' District, Hochon County, South Hamgyong Province.

Meanwhile, a project for building houses for more than 1 000 families is going in earnest around Pyongyang International Airport. And a large number of houses are under construction in Ryongchon County of North Phyongan Province and other areas of the country.

All those houses built at state expense are allotted free of charge, and this principle is legally ensured in the DPRK.

Ri Ok Gum, a resident in Ryomyong Street, Pyongyang City, told KCNA: Three years ago, foreigners visited my house and said it is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in their country. Their words made me so surprised.

This is the reality of the DPRK that the people don't know about house price and rent.

Generally the house price and rent are very expensive in capitalist society.

In the U.S. alone, more than 500 000 people are reportedly wandering from place to place without their own houses.

This fact in the aspect of housing problem well shows the difference between the socialist society of the DPRK based on the people-first principle and the capitalist society talking about "welfare for all". -0-

Che Guevara and People's Korea-translation of article from KFA Argentina

                           https://kfaargentina.wordpress.com/2018/12/04/el-che-guevara-en-corea-del-norte/
                          Kim Il Sung with Che Guevara in December 1960

In December 1960 the Argentine and Cuban revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara traveled to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) within the framework of the international tour that he carried out as a member of the Cuban government for which he toured different countries of the socialist camp in order to learn from the experience of other socialist countries and use it for Cuba's socialist construction /
                                                  naenarakimilsung119
In the capital of the DPRK Pyongyang, Che Guevara was received by the Korean revolutionary leader Kim Il-Sung, President of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, and after his stay in the Korean nation, Che left his words about his experience and what he felt about the Korean people and the development of socialism in the DPRK.They are reproduced below
                                                   Che Korea
Of the socialist countries that we visit personally, Korea is one of the most extraordinary. Perhaps it is the one that impressed us most of all of them. It has only ten million inhabitants and is the size of Cuba, a little less, about one hundred and ten thousand square kilometres. The same land area as the southern part of Korea, but half the population, was plagued by a war so fantastically destructive that nothing remained of its cities, and when one says nothing, it is nothing. It is like the small towns of guano that Merob Sosa and Sánchez Mosquera and those people burned here, and of which there was nothing left but ashes. Thus, for example, Pyonyang, which is a city of a million inhabitants, remained. Today there is not a single remnant of all that destruction, everything is new. The only memory that remains is, on all roads,

naenarakimilsung119They showed me many of the factories, all rebuilt and others made new, and each one of those factories had supported between 30 and 50 thousand bombs. If we get an idea of ​​what were 10 or 12 bombs thrown around us in the Sierra, which meant a terrible bombardment, and you had to have your courage to endure those bombs, which meant 30 thousand bombs dropped in one ground space, sometimes less than a cavalry!

Korea came out of the war without a standing industry, without a standing house, even without animals. At a time when the air superiority of the Americans was so great, and it no longer had anything to destroy, aviators had fun killing oxen, killing what they found. So it was a veritable orgy of death that hung over North Korea for only two years. In the third year the Mig-15 appeared and things have already changed. But those two years of war meant, perhaps, the most barbaric systematic destruction ever done.

Everything that can be said about Korea seems like a lie. For example, in the photographs you see people with hatred, that hatred of the peoples when it reaches the deepest part of the being, which is seen in the photos of caves where 200, 300 and 400 children, of an age of 3 or 4 years old, they are murdered there with fire and other times with gas. The dismemberment of the people, killing pregnant women with bayonets to make the child come out of the bowels, burning the wounded with flamethrowers ... The most inhumane things that the mind can imagine were carried out by the US Army of occupation. And it went almost to the edge of Korea with China, and it occupied, at one point, almost the entire country. Added to that, in the retreat they destroyed everything, we can say that North Korea is a country that was made of deaths. Naturally, he received the help of the socialist countries, especially the aid of the Soviet Union, in a generous and very extensive way. But what most impresses is the spirit of that people. They are a people that emerged from all this after thirty years of Japanese domination, from a violent struggle against Japanese domination, without even having an alphabet. In other words, it was one of the most backward peoples in the world in that sense. Today it has a national literature and culture, and a national order and practically unlimited development of culture. They have secondary education, which is up to the ninth grade, compulsory for everyone.

They have secondary education, which is up to the ninth grade, compulsory for everyone.

It has in the whole industry a problem that we wish we had today -which we will have in 2 or 3 years-, which is the problem of lack of labour. Korea is rapidly mechanizing all of agriculture to increase productivity and to realize its plans, and is also preparing to bring the product of textile factories and others to South Korea's brothers to help them bear the brunt of colonial rule. North American.

It is really the example of a country that thanks to a system and extraordinary leaders, such as Marshal Kim II-Sung, has been able to emerge from the greatest misfortunes to be an industrialized country today. North Korea could be for anyone here in Cuba, the symbol of one of the many backward countries in Asia. However, we sell them a semi-processed sugar such as raw sugar, and other still unprocessed products, such as textiles and they sell us milling lathes, all kinds of machinery, mining machinery, that is, products that need a high technical capacity to produce them. So it is one of the countries that we are most excited about.

SPA Presidium Sends Greetings to Chongryon

Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) -- The Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly (SPA) of the DPRK sent a message of greeting to the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on May 25 on the occasion of its 65th anniversary.

The message extended warm congratulations and compatriotic greetings to Chairman Ho Jong Man and all other Chongryon officials and Koreans.

The formation of Chongryon, a dignified organization of overseas citizens of the DPRK, was the precious fruition of President Kim Il Sung's unique idea on the overseas compatriots' movement and guidance on the movement, and the formation was a historic event which brought about a fundamental turn in the development of the movement of Koreans in Japan and carving out the destiny of Koreans in Japan, the message said.

It said that the 65 years after Chongryon formation were the period of victory and honor when the organization paved and glorified the new path of the overseas compatriots' movement in the era of independence under the guidance of President Kim Il Sung, Chairman Kim Jong Il and Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, adding that the years were also a patriotic period during which Chongryon made a great contribution to the country and nation.

The message said that Chongryon has thoroughly applied the immortal Juche idea to the building of the organization and all its patriotic activities with the idea as the only guidelines so as to strengthen and develop it into an patriotic organization in which the ideological system of Juche, the leadership system, was thoroughly established and which has the might of the single-minded unity. Chongryon has also prepared its officials and compatriots as people strong in ideology and faith and ardent patriots who are boundlessly loyal to their leader and motherland, the message added.

In the face of the persistent moves of the enemies at home and abroad for stifling the organization, Chongryon officials and compatriots in Japan have reliably defended their organization, the legacy of patriotism left by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, and demonstrated to the whole world its true nature and might as an organization of overseas citizens of Juche Korea, the message said.

The message expressed the belief that the officials of Chongryon and compatriots in Japan would, in the future, too, add lustre to the organization, which shines by the august names of the peerlessly great men, as the patriotic pioneer, the example of patriotism and loyalty and the paragon of the movement of the overseas compatriots in the world. -0-

Punish homicide!

Punish homicide!

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Gwangju Popular Uprising, broad segments of south Korean people launched their action in demand of punishment of Chun Doo-hwan who turned Gwangju into a bath of blood and killed five thousand citizens brutally.

     




   Democracy would not come true as long as Chun and his group and the United Future Party, a remnant of the military dictatorial group, remain unpunished. It called for the people to greet a new morning of democracy by liquidating the conservative elements, the Solidarity for People’s Sovereignty noted in a statement issued on the 40th anniversary of Gwangju Popular Uprising on May 17.
Saying that putting an end to the US intervention in south Korean affairs and achieving national independence are the way to realize the desire of the uprisers, the statement called for building a new society by driving the US, the wire-puller of the Gwangju massacre, out of south Korea.

It is the fixed faith and unshakable will of our party to firmly defend the sovereignty and dignity of the country, break through head-on the grim unprecedented hardships and win new victory in building a powerful socialist country in reliance on the strong militant spirit and the invincible might of the revolutionary armed forces.

Today the armed forces of the DPRK face a heavy historic task to further arm with the revolutionary idea, line and policies of the WPK as required by the prevailing situation, to reliably defend the party, the revolution, the country, people and socialism by bolstering the invincible military force in every way and to fully display the might as the pioneer of the times and the performers of miracles in the grand advance for achieving prosperity by dint of self-defence.

All the commanding officers of the armed forces of the DPRK must open the breakthrough of advance in the van of the gigantic struggle to significantly celebrate the 75th founding anniversary of the glorious WPK by holding fast to the party's leadership as lifeline and work unprecedented innovative successes in carrying out the cause of building a powerful army and the cause of socialist construction as a whole so as to glorify the noble honor as members of the great party's army, the great people's army.

I order to promote the military ranks of the major commanding officers as follows, firmly believing that all the commanding officers, key backbones of the armed forces of the DPRK, would honor their noble mission and duties in the sacred struggle to defend the party, the revolution, the country and the people.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un Guides Enlarged Meeting of WPK Central Military Commission













Pyongyang, May 24 (KCNA) -- The Fourth Enlarged Meeting of the Seventh Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) took place at a stirring time when the entire Party and the whole society are pushing ahead with the great revolutionary advance for glorifying this year marking the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK as a year of opening up an epoch-making phase in the path of the development of the Korean-style socialism, true to the line and policy for achieving prosperity by self-reliance set forth by the great Party.

The meeting was guided by Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the WPK.

Attending the meeting were members of the WPK Central Military Commission, members of the Executive Committee of the Korean People's Army Committee of the WPK, commanders and commissars of the services and corps of the Korean People's Army, commanding officers of the Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of People's Security, the Guard Headquarters and other armed forces organs at all levels and vice directors of major departments of the WPK Central Committee.

The meeting discussed important military steps and organizational and political measures to further bolster up the overall armed forces of the DPRK politically and ideologically and in military technique to be able to firmly defend the political stability and sovereignty of the country and reliably contain the persistent big or small military threats from the hostile forces in view of the essential requirements to bring about further progress in developing the national defence capabilities and war deterrent under the internal and external situation created in the vital period in the development of our revolution, and dealt with an organizational matter.

The meeting reviewed and analyzed a series of drawbacks in the military and political activities of the overall armed forces of the DPRK including the People's Army, and discussed methodological issues for overcoming them and bringing about drastic improvement. Also discussed at the meeting were the issue of examining and setting right the unreasonable machinery and compositional defects and the core issues for further increasing the capabilities for militarily deterring the threatening foreign forces by rapidly increasing the self-reliant defence capabilities and organizing new units.

The meeting stressed once again the tasks facing the different sectors to thoroughly carry out the revolutionary military line and policies of the party.

Set forth at the meeting were new policies for further increasing the nuclear war deterrence of the country and putting the strategic armed forces on a high alert operation in line with the general requirements for the building and development of the armed forces of the country.

Taken at the meeting were crucial measures for considerably increasing the firepower strike ability of the artillery pieces of the Korean People's Army.

The meeting elected a vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the WPK and recalled or by-elected some of its members.

Ri Pyong Chol was elected as vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the WPK.

The organizational matter was tabled at the meeting on dismissing or transferring or newly appointing commanding officers in major posts of the armed forces institutions.

The CMC of the WPK decided to promote the military ranks of major commanding officers of the People's Army in high recognition of their devotion and efforts to glorify this year marking the significant 75th anniversary of the glorious WPK as the first year of great victory in the frontal breakthrough.

The respected Supreme Leader put main emphasis on thoroughly realizing the party's monolithic leadership over the People's Army by consolidating the party organizations and political institutions at all levels within the People's Army and enhancing their function and roles, and on providing party leadership to conducting military, political, logistic and defence and all other affairs in line with the ideology and intention of the party under whatever circumstances. He specified key issues to be constantly maintained in the military and political performance of the armed forces of the DPRK, and tasks and ways.

He signed seven orders including the orders on new military measures discussed and decided at the Party CMC, an order on draft reorganization of machinery for enhancing the responsibility and roles of the major military educational institutions, the order on reorganizing the military commanding system to meet the mission and duty of the security institutions, and the order on promoting the military ranks of commanding officers.

The Fourth Enlarged Meeting of the Seventh Central Military Commission of the WPK organized and led by Kim Jong Un served as a historic turning point of great significance in increasing the capabilities of the revolutionary armed forces in every way and laying a solid foundation for further powerfully propelling the victorious advance of the revolutionary cause of Juche by dint of the invincible military force under the outstanding army-building idea and strategic plan of the WPK. -0-

CHONGRYON was founded on the 25th of May 1955 as an organisation of overseas compatriots of the DPRK and an organisation to defend the rights of ethnic Koreans in Japan against oppression by the Japanese imperialist reactionaries. The great leader President KIM IL SUNG inspired the foundation of CHONGRYON and gave valuable teachings to you. CHONGRYON is a truly
Juche-orientated overseas compatriots movement.

Despite attempts at repression by the US imperialists and evil Japanese reactionaries CHONGRYON has stood the tests of time and survived many storms always defying all attempts to crush or undermine it. CHONRYON stands out as a shining example of an overseas compatriots movement and is a model for all ethnic minority organisations throughout the world.

The great leader chairman KIM JONG IL, the successor to the great leader President KIM IL SUNG and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN also provided   important guidelines for developing the movement of Koreans in Japan on a new high stage in the period of historic turn in carrying forward the revolutionary cause of Juche.

We  wish CHONGRYON greater success in its work and meaningful celebrations of its 65th anniversary.

KCNA Report on Successful Completion of Large-Scale Irrigation System in South Hwanghae Province

                                                 




Pyongyang, May 23 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency Friday released a report on the successful completion of the large-scale irrigation system in South Hwanghae Province.

Builders and people in South Hwanghae Province have performed heroic feats by completing the second-stage waterway project in a little more than three years in the spirit of self-reliance and fortitude, true to the instructions of Chairman Kim Jong Il and the Party's policy, the report said, and continued:

The successful completion of the second-stage waterway project made it possible to fully supply irrigation water to the vast Western coastal granary, providing a firm foundation for decisively increasing the grain production.

The construction of the peculiar irrigation network of our own style in the western area of the country also makes it possible to save tens of millions kWh of electric power for pumping facilities every year and get a number of pumping equipment out of use, protect land by preventing flood damage in the area along the lower River Jaeryong and River Ryesong and spruce up the appearance of the land of the socialist country.

The completion of the waterway is the clear demonstration of our Party's great idea of the frontal offensive to accomplish the great cause of prosperity by dint of self-reliance by overcoming all sorts of challenges of history, the validity of its policy of agricultural irrigation system and the inevitable might of our state bringing about great changes by evoking the inexhaustible creative power of the popular masses.

The waterway is a monumental edifice in the era of the Workers' Party which was completed thanks to the instructions of Kim Jong Il and the far-reaching nature-remaking plan and energetic guidance of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

In April Juche 100 (2011), Kim Jong Il issued an order of the chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission to commence the waterway project in two stages.

After seeing through the significance and importance of the project in decisively increasing the agricultural production in South Hwanghae Province, which takes lion's share of domestic agricultural production, he aroused the entire Party, the whole country and all the people to the grand nature-remaking project.

The waterway project began in January 2012 when all the people started their advance for the new century of Juche amid the fierce flames of devotedly implementing the instructions of the leader and upholding the policies of the Party.

The construction of waterway was a big construction campaign for building a gravity-fed irrigation network, the largest one, during which over 11 800 000 cubic meters of bedrock and earth should be excavated, dozens of waterway tunnels cut and over 190 km-long waterway with at least 770 structures of different kinds and huge siphons built.

The fierce hot wind of leap forward was raised from the beginning of the first-stage project.

Through 5 year-long arduous struggle for bringing nature under control with the spirit of self-reliance and self-development, the builders successfully completed the first-stage waterway project in South Hwanghae Province in the meaningful year when the Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea was held.

The second-stage waterway project began from January 2017.

The second-stage project was also a difficult and huge task to carry out gigantic amount of work for laying the foundation, which was as big as that of the first-stage project, such as removing earth, excavating bedrock and tamping concrete, and build a reservoir dam, over 80 km-long waterway, tunnels and hundreds of structures like siphons and culverts.

A fierce hot wind of creating new standards and new records was raised in the construction of Pongchonho Dam, the major front of the waterway project.

The building of spillway, which was said to take over 2 years, was finished in a short span of one year.

The building of reservoir dam with over 1 400 000 cubic meters of sand, stone and mud was carried out in three-dimensional way, and finally the dam with large letters "Self-Reliance" on its body took its shape in April, 2019.

The fierce hot wind was also witnessed at the construction sites of tunnels and waterway.

Thanks to the efforts of shock brigade members true to the Party's noble intention for the people, socialist fairylands for the people evacuated from submerged areas came into being and good species of trees and flower trees were planted in nearby mountains and fields to add beauty.

The completion of the waterway project in South Hwanghae Province proved once again truth that there is nothing impossible in the world as long as there are the leadership of the great Party and the inexhaustible might of people opening a broad avenue for leap forward under the uplifted banner of self-reliance, the report stressed. -0-

Reflections on the Kwangju Uprising and the nature of south Korea

                                                                                     

The 40th anniversary of the Kwangju uprising in south Korea and the subsequent massacre of the uprisers by the south Korean puppet regime and US imperialists causes deep reflection. The mainstream media like to tell us daily , in fact sometimes it seems every hour and even every minute about so -called 'human rights' abuses in People's Korea and parade treacherous scum to denounce their socialist motherland .Yet the same mainstream media were silent about the anniversary of the Kwangju massacre , totally silent . Few people know that it was in south Korea in May 1980 that 5,000 people died at the hands of south Korean and US forces , it did not happen in the DPRK.
Really since the end of the 1980s a massive propaganda campaign to whitewash and prettify the image of the south Korean fascist puppet regime . UK KFA has even been told off for using the term ' puppet ' in relation to south Korea . The 1988 Seoul Olympics were a key turning point in this .It does strange that the Olympics which are meant to symbolise peace and friendship where held in a land where only 8 years before 5,000 people had been killed horribly . The DPRK boycotted the Olympics and was supported in this by Cuba , socialist Albania , Ethiopia , Nicaragua, Madagascar and the Seychelles . Shamefully the so-called 'socialist allies' of the DPRK sent teams to participate . Later worse treachery followed when the Hungarian revisionists recognised the south Korean puppet regime followed by others such as the Soviet revisionists . It was later revealed that Gorbachov had received $100,000 from the south Korean puppet regime and the Hungarians had also been bribed.
In many countries there was a concerted effort to hide the nature of the south Korean puppet regime and present it to the world as some kind of 'utopia ' of 'freedom' and 'human rights ' as well as supposed 'prosperity'. Liberals fell over themselves to praise the south Korean puppets as did some on the Left . It was whispered that some Labour MPs were bribed and from another quarter a finger was pointed at a few British academics whom we wont name but were believed to have had their pockets lined by the south Korean puppets.
For me south Korea was and is a miserable colony of the US , the place were the Kwangju massacre took place and were south Korean revolutionaries comrade Kim Jong Tae and Choi Young Do were martyred by the fascist regime.

The Korea Future Initiative Exposed !

UK KFA has been doing some research on the shadowy "Korea Future Initiative' and ' Connect North Korea ' . Both organisations are linked to each other and are a spin off from the anti-DPRK 'European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea ' which used to operate out of a big office block in Croydon which by a coincidence housed several government departments .
"Korea Future Initiative " did register as a company but has applied to be struck off the register , this clearly shows something dodgy is going on , something is being hidden from view . The accounts filed do not reveal who is really funding the company and the declared assets of the company would not cover the costs of business rates , rent and paying the 8 members of staff .
Looking at some of the key people in the outfit is interesting . The secretary of the company is married to a someone who was a Conservative party local election candidate and is also connected with a number of advertising companies . The director of the company is also a director the Clare Foundation whose directors include a former MP and junior minister . It is not too hard to discern what forces are behind this so-called 'human rights ' organisation.
Now where it is gets even murky is that the founder of the Korea Future Initiative and and former head of EAHRNK, one "Michael Glendinning " does not appear on list of directors on the Companies House website . This is very odd .. Has 'Glenndinning ' disappeared ?
'The Korea Future Initiative' has nothing to do with 'human right ' but everything to do with trying to smear the DPRK and work for 'regime change ' , basically the destruction of the socialist system in the DPRK '
