List of diplomatic missions of North Korea

This is a list of diplomatic missions of North Korea.

North Korea (red) and its diplomatic missions (blue)

In the Cold War era its foreign policy was focused on the Soviet bloc countries, while it actively courted allies in the developing world. This was more out of political necessity, as North Korea competed with South Korea for diplomatic recognition. Eventually countries began recognizing both governments on the Korean Peninsula, and North Korea's missions in the developing world are more concerned with running aid programs and maintaining political mileage than obtaining any economic benefits.
