Naenara News (EN)

The website of the Foreign Languages Publishing House, North Korea’s main publisher for translation and outside propaganda. It releases only a limited amount of daily news often dominated by less informative introduction to various topics. KCNAWatch covers its content beginning in 2013.

Naenara publishes content in Korean and translations in eight languages, but frequently translations are only partial or of low quality.

The website is divided in separate sections on politics including the three Kims, economy and trade, society and culture as well as smaller sections on history, unification and tourism.

Naenara also houses a number of subsites including the Korea Federation for Protection of the Disabled, the Kim Il Sung – Kim Jong Il Foundation, a range of companies and state entities as well several special economic or developmental zones.

The Pyongyang Times and the page for a selected list of publications and periodicals have moved to separate websites but are still advertised by Naenara.

The politics section on the website features the full text of North Korea’s constitution which also is the quickest to update the text if changes are made. A section on economic laws, in contrast, has not been updated for years despite some of the laws shown being updated.
