North Korea has been expressing its emphasis on sports since the beginning of the year, such as appointing Prime Minister Kim Deok-hun as the chairman of the National Sports Guidance Committee this year. It has been confirmed that Foreign Economy Minister Yoon Jeong-ho has been appointed as the new head of the Korea Football Association.
Kim Jong-un, the general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, also personally watched sports matches between the cabinet and the Ministry of National Defense last month.
Analysts say that North Korea’s emphasis on sports is because it is promoting participation in the Asian Games to be held in Hangzhou, China in September this year.
North Korea was punished by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for not participating in the Tokyo Summer Olympics held in 2021 due to a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), and was suspended from participating in IOC-sponsored competitions until the end of last year.
North Korea’s Corona 19 quarantine is still ‘high intensity’, but it is likely to be subject to disciplinary action again if it does not participate in this competition, so there are observations that North Korea will also seek diversified ways to participate in the competition.
