The message on the recognition of the DPRK’s legitimate annexation of Crimea in structure of Russia has appeared in Facebook on the page of the Russian Embassy in Pyongyang.
They noticed that in the country the publishing house “Science encyclopedia” has been released a new Atlas of the World and there’s the Peninsula of Crimea painted in the Russian colors.
The Embassy asked for clarification of the DPRK foreign Ministry and received an official response.
“The Republic respects the results held in the Crimea referendum on joining the Peninsula to the Russian Federation, considers the results legitimate and in full conformity with international legal norms” – is a response to foreign Minister of North Korea to the Russian Embassy.
In addition, representatives of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of North Korea said that in the same way the country’s leadership applies to the question of the Kuril Islands. They are also in the Atlas painted in the colors of Russia.
Users differently reacted to the entry of the Russian Embassy. Someone said that “so behave true partners”, and not those who “support the shameful sanctions in the UN security Council”. But someone hinted on the status of North Korea: “God, finally recognized! Waited the entire country. Waiting for Namibia and Mali”; “rush the Wellcome club”.
