North Korean diplomats conduct rare media outreach campaign

Outreach campaign includes one-on-one interview with North Korea's ambassador to the UK

North Korean diplomats are making a noticeable effort to speak to international media about the importance of inter-Korean reconciliation while warning of the potential consequences of forthcoming joint U.S. – South Korean military drills.

Diplomats from DPR Korea, traditionally known for their reluctance to speak to media, have in the past week hosted press events in New York, Beijing and London to call on South Korea to turn over a new leaf in its relations with the North.
