North Korea’s Wonsan-Kalma project fails to meet April 15 completion deadline

Finishing materials still being sent to marquee beach resort as construction is “pushing forward,” state outlets say

North Korea’s giant Wonsan-Kalma Coastal Tourist Area construction project has failed to meet an April 15 completion deadline previously set by leader Kim Jong Un, state media confirmed on Friday.

The confirmation comes in the form of two reports in DPRK internet outlets on ongoing construction efforts as of Friday, including on the provision of finishing materials to the site, and follows weeks of unusual silence from state media.
