The foundation of the DPRK was the birth of a new state of Juche in the far east ! The DPRK was the first people's democracy in Asia, a new kind of people's power. With the foundation of the DPRK the Korean people took power in their own hands......
Today People's Korea is one of the few countries in the world free from Covid 19 thanks to the wise policies of the DPRK government and Workers' Party of Korea headed by the respected Marshal KIM JONG UN .
