News Daily Digital Desk: The whole world is plagued by the Coronavirus epidemic. Although the lockdown has been partially successful in preventing the infection, the economies of almost all countries have been hit hard. Similarly, North Korea is suffering from an epidemic. Despite hiding the truth for so long, this time the dictator Kim Jong Un admitted that the economic condition of the country is not good.

North Korea, like other countries, was forced to declare a lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Although the pace of transition has slowed down, the country’s economic growth has plummeted. The country is facing an extreme financial and food crisis. The situation has reached such a point that this time Kim did not try to cover up the reality. Kim made the remarks at a meeting of Workers’ Party branch secretaries in the capital, Pyongyang, on Thursday. “The country is going through the worst possible situation,” he said. He also discussed with party workers how to pull North Korea out of this situation. Understanding the importance of the situation, Kim compared the current famine in the country to the 1990 famine. Needless to say, the collapse of the main ally, the Soviet Union, and international sanctions led to a terrible food crisis in North Korea in the 1990s. Thousands of people died in the service.
Meanwhile, Kim’s country continues to try to build nuclear weapons, even though it cannot deliver food to the people of the country. Not only that, Kim has been using nuclear missiles as an infallible tool of diplomacy for a long time. The United States has urged North Korea not to develop nuclear weapons. The issue was discussed at a summit between the two countries in Hanoi last year. That meeting failed. The United States has maintained diplomatic contact with North Korea. The idea is that Kim is trying to strengthen his position in the negotiating stage with the United States by displaying new missiles.
