New DPRK ambassador to Thailand

Mun Song Mo was appointed as DPRK ambassador to Thailand, according to a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK.

Mun Song Mo (born in1948) is a former DPRK ambassador to Ethiopia, Sudan, India (where he served from 2004). He also served in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK.

Mun Sung Mo belongs to those who were not expelled by Kim Jong Eun after the Jang Sung Thaek execution. He’s believe to be a close confident to the regent family.

The relations between both countries are complicated. From one side, there are many DPRK companies based in Thailand (such as restaurants), from the other side, Thailand is a country from where DPRK refugees try to reach South Korea. Therefore many DPRK agents are based in Thailand.
