About our North Korea news

Latest news on North Korea, covering the latest developments in the country's politics, economy, military, and foreign relations, as well as insights into the lives of its citizens.

North Korea, officially known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), is a nation of over 25 million people located in East Asia, bordered by China, Russia, and South Korea. The country has been under the rule of the Kim family since its founding in 1948, with the current leader being Kim Jong-un, who assumed power in 2011 following the death of his father, Kim Jong-il.

Stay informed about the latest developments in North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, which have been a major source of tension in the region and have led to numerous international sanctions against the country. Our feed provides timely updates on North Korea's military activities, including missile launches and nuclear tests, as well as diplomatic efforts to address these issues, such as the historic summits between Kim Jong-un and former U.S. President Donald Trump in 2018 and 2019.

In addition to its military and foreign policy, our North Korea feed also covers the country's economic situation, including the impact of international sanctions and the government's efforts to modernize and diversify the economy. Despite some limited market reforms in recent years, North Korea's economy remains heavily centralized and state-controlled, with widespread poverty and food shortages affecting much of the population.

Our feed also provides insights into the lives of ordinary North Koreans, who live under one of the world's most repressive and secretive regimes. From the strict control over information and the media to the government's extensive surveillance and human rights abuses, we cover the challenges faced by North Korean citizens and the rare glimpses into their daily lives provided by defectors and foreign journalists.

North Korea's foreign relations are another key focus of our feed, with regular updates on the country's ties with its neighbours, particularly China, which remains its closest ally and largest trading partner, as well as its fraught relationship with South Korea and the United States. We also cover international efforts to engage with North Korea, such as the six-party talks aimed at denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, and the ongoing debate over the effectiveness of sanctions and diplomacy in addressing the country's nuclear ambitions.

For those seeking to stay up-to-date on all aspects of North Korea, from its politics and economy to its military and society, our NewsNow feed provides comprehensive coverage from a range of reputable sources. Whether you're a policymaker, researcher, or simply interested in this fascinating and often misunderstood country, our feed is an essential resource for staying informed about the latest developments in North Korea.
