Anti-U.S. military theme featured in new North Korean propaganda poster

Unification also major theme in new series as slogans reflect Kim Jong Un’s New Year’s Address

In a first since U.S.-DPRK denuclearization negotiations began last year, a North Korean propaganda poster released in state media Sunday featured imagery promoting the removal of U.S. military assets from the Korean Peninsula.

Released through state outlet Uriminzokkiri as part of five new posters – all themed around unification and featuring slogans pulled from Kim Jong Un’s recent 2019 New Year’s Address – one brings back the familiar anti-U.S. theme which disappeared from official propaganda following the start of the inter-Korean detente in early 2018.
