Gold, drugs, missiles: North Korea’s attempted illegal sales through the KFA

New film exposes Spanish Korean Friendship Association aristocrat who tried to help the DPRK sell weapons and drugs

A North Korean company offered Scud missiles, rocket artillery systems, a gold mine, drug manufacturing help and even more to two Danish individuals visiting Pyongyang in Jan. 2017, a new documentary revealed on Sunday.

Director Mads Brügger’s “The Mole” showed that North Korea’s Korea Narae Trading Company offered these sanctioned items and services to the two Danes, who posed as an investor and a senior member of the Korean Friendship Association (KFA). The imposters used body cameras to secretly film deals that they tried to set up with North Korea under false pretenses.
