Internationalism, just as the construction of socialism in the DPRK, has been a consistent feature of the ideological and political structure of People’s Korea and a prominent keystone of the Juche idea, as expressed by President Kim Il-sung himself. This is particularly noticeable in Africa, and the long standing relationship between anti-imperialist, national liberation movements and Korean revolutionaries.

  • Juche Korea throughout the 20th Century maintained a close relationship with anti-imperialist figureheads such as Samora Machael, Muammar Gadafi, Robert Mugabe, Sam Nujoma, and Etienne Gnassingbe Eyadema.
  • DPRK actively aided (and still aids) African nations in socio-economic development through structural projects such as the Arusha Brick Factory (Tanzania), a stadium (Zanzibar), a printing house (Benin), a hydroelectric power station (Ethiopia), the National Palace (Guinea), the Chollima Agricultural Science Institute (Tanzania), irrigation facilities (Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Rwanda, and others), Juche experimental farm (Ghana), friendship experimental farm (Zambia), the government building of Lesotho, the parliament building of the Central African Republic, an outdoor theatre and revolutionary tower in Burkina Faso, a hall of culture in Benin, and the Unity Stadium in Victoria (Seychelles).
  • Many political parties and public organisations in Guinea, Mali, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and other African
    countries have the portraits of President Kim Il-sung hanged on the
    walls of their offices and halls to honour Kim Il-sung.

  • The regional online forum on President Kim Il-sung and the independent
    development of Africa on July 8, 2014 called on the leaders of the
    African countries who are desirous of national prosperity and
    independent development to learn from President Kim Il-sung and the
    Juche idea. Many African nations look to the DPRK as an example of what socialist construction can achieve in a small country under continuous imperialist threat and limited access to resources.
