Who we are

We are Czechs and Slovaks who have a friendly relationship with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and its people and support its policy, organized in the Paektusan Czech-Korean Friendship Association.

We strive to establish friendly relations between the people of the Czech and Slovak Republics and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. We support the development of cultural, economic, scientific, political and other Czech-Slovak-Korean relations.

We take care to disseminate true information, particularly on the basis of direct contact between the people of both countries, and based on our own sources of knowledge.

We are based on national traditions, the development of culture, democracy and humanity and the respect for the right to self-determination of nations.

The Paektusan Czech-Korean Friendship Association is a registered association.

The practical activities of the Paektusan Czech-Korean Friendship Association are based on statute approved by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic on January 6, 1999 and updated following the transfer to the new legal form of the registered association in 2017.

In our political activity, we advocate the ideas of socialism and the efforts for achieving it in the former Czechoslovakia and around the world, following the example of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Our activists are members of several political parties as well as non-party progressive people.
