Efforts to wean people off of Chinese mobile phones

North Korean authorities in Sinuiju are marking this year’s “Struggle Against US Imperialism Month” (June 25 – Jul. 27) by condemning the use of Chinese-made mobile phones during forced visits to the city’s “Anti-Espionage Exhibition.” 

In fact, North Korean authorities in Sinuiju have been forcing employees of local factories and businesses, along with members of local inminban (people’s units), to visit the city’s ”Anti-Espionage Exhibition” since June 15, according to a source in North Pyongan Province on Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The exhibition visits are followed by trips to the counter-espionage department of the provincial branch of the Ministry of State Security, where officials lecture participants on the “evils” of using Chinese mobile phones.

Counter-espionage officials reportedly stressed to lecture attendees that “there are many spies in our country [North Korea]. The border region is the area with the most spies.” ........
