North Korea to shutter embassy in Democratic Republic of Congo
The North Korean Embassy in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is set to close, the central African country’s foreign ministry told NK News, making it the seventh DPRK overseas mission to shut its doors since late October.
The shuttering of the embassy in Kinshasa follows the DPRK’s withdrawal from Bangladesh, Spain, Hong Kong, Uganda, Angola and Nepal. A Japanese media outlet previously reported that Pyongyang plans to close over a dozen embassies in total.
