Open dialogue with North Korean authorities

Report
Mission East

Despite the harsh words of the past months, everything seems to be ‘business as usual’. This is the feeling when you are inside North Korea, according to Kim Hartzner, Managing Director of the Danish NGO Mission East. He just returned from the country after visiting orphanages and victims of last year’s flooding.

  • The dialogue with the local authorities is open and transparent. They seem sincerely interested in improving people’s lives and are sad when people live in poverty or lose their homes, says Kim Hartzner who returned from North Korea this past weekend.
