The Venezuelan government inaugurated its Embassy in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Wednesday, with the aim of expanding the bonds of friendship and cooperation between Caracas and Pionyang (capital of the Asian country), according to the press release of the Ministry of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs.
It should be noted that this is the fifth diplomatic mission to open up a Latin American nation. Previously, Mexico, Brazil, Peru and Cuba were based.
The ceremony took place in the capital Munsudong neighborhood, Daedonggong District, east of Pyongyang. The event was preceded by Venezuela’s Deputy Foreign Minister Rubén Darío Molina and the DPRK’s Deputy Foreign Minister Pak Myung Guk.
Molina took the opportunity to denounce the repeated and constant attacks by the administration of Donald Trump, president of the United States, against Venezuela and North Korea.
For his part, Pak Myung Guk, emphasized his nation’s firm desire to develop the bonds of friendship and cooperation with Caracas, in defense of peoples and in rejection of anti-imperialism.
He said that Venezuela is not alone in the fight against imperialism and that they count on North Korea in terms of comprehensive assistance and support for the government of President Nicolás Maduro.
