This regular publication looks at current international, domestic, and peninsular affairs concerning North Korea while also offering commentary and tourism information on the country.
In international news, Reuters reported that North Korea cannot pay its UN dues owing to sanctions. These sanctions are also hampering aid groups to operate inside the country, making it more difficult to obtain supplies.
In Inter-Korean news, previously loudspeakers along the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) would blast martial speeches, but since the Winter Olympics began, these have been replaced by choral and folk music.
On the domestic front, it is reported that North Korea’s electricity and water supply have sharply deteriorated since mid-January 2018, and that the water supply has even been completely suspended due to lack of power.
