Although small in comparison to many other countries, a number of North Korean government agencies have an online presence in Korean, and occasionally in English.

We have also included a few links to non-government organizations, or associations like Chongryon who are extremely close to the government of the DPRK.


PYONGYANG-BASED


Ministry of Foreign Affairs

http://www.mfa.gov.kp

The most “senior” website of the DPRK (government wise) online. The website is in English, and Korean, and although it often carries similar content to other local channels, occasionally makes official government announcements.

Financial Intelligence Agency

http://www.fia.law.kp

A truly fascinating website that represents the North Korea agency which overseas financial affairs, such as illegal payments. How this works in a sanctioned country is anyone’s guess. There’s not much content on the website, and what’s there is exclusively in Korean.

Maritime Administration of DPR Korea

The North Korean agency overseeing merchant shipping in the country. Content is available in both English and Korean with a whole host of information about where ships are registered among other things.

DPRK Website Portal

A portal where you can look up all websites based in Pyongyang, or which are using the .kp TLD. Content is in the Korean language only, but with advertisements for various websites, as well as contact emails and phone numbers.


OUTSIDE KOREA

http://www.chongryon.com

The official portal for the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, abbreviated to Chongryon. They represent the North Korean residents of Japan, and act as an unofficial embassy between the DPRK and Japan. The site is available in Korean and Japanese.
