North Korea has denounced Washington for using “American-style ‘democracy’” as a tool to interfere in other countries’ affairs, after the U.S. hosted its Summit for Democracy over the weekend with more than 110 countries participating.

In a statement published on Sunday, the DPRK’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs joined China and Russia in criticizing the virtual summit organized in line with U.S. President Joe Biden’s campaign promise to reinforce democratic values against authoritarianism.
