the North Korean stands media triumphantly published a congratulatory message from the Queen on Monday die informed insiders to speculate that Pyongyang must have made up the note from Buckingham Palace in a propaganda move to the coast up the rogue state international to stand.
However, a royal spokesperson has confirmed to The Daily Beast that Queen Elizabeth II has indeed send a happy message to Kim Jong Un on the opportunity of the 73rd birthday of the founding of the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea.
North Korea ‘regularly greets our queen’ on her birthday,” Korea expert Aidan Foster-Carter, senior research fellow at the University of Leeds in England, told The Daily Beast, “but I find no trace” of any message from us/ her to them – until now. So this is intriguing.”
The message, dated September 7, two days before North Korea’s founding day, was revealed Monday by the Korean Central News Agency of Pyongyang, which published it. in are entirely under tens of other posts from leaders of countries such as Algeria, the Seychelles and Azerbaijan. The Controversial King of Thailand was another benefactor, but the heads of other major western powers were notable for their absence.
The queen avoided personal contact tribute to the Korean dictator despite the birthday of the established order of the Kim dynasty.
“As the people of the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea is celebrating their national day, I’m sending my good to wish for the future,” she said.
A royal spokesperson confirmed the authenticity of the message to The Daily Beast, allaying suspicions that it may have been an elaborate hoax. The palace just wanted to say that the message to the . was sent head of state, although there is only one man to whom that might refer. Pyongyang’s KCNA Confirmed It Was Sent To Kim Jong Un As “President” of stands affairs.”
“It was a message from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO) on On behalf of of Her Majesty to the people of North Korea on their national day,” a spokesperson said for the palace. Such messages are sent routinely in the queen’s name by and on Advice of the FCDO, she would not have made the message herself.
However, attempts to downplay the meaning of the message will not appease critics who fear die the regime makes use of the queen’s message to grant legitimacy on it’s autocratic system. North Korea’s nuclear ambitions were demonstrated again on Sunday with brags of successful tests of An new long-range cruise missile.
DPRK leaders have tried in to tense with the Queen for year, send nice letters to the family and her burgers. In 2014, for for example Kim Yong Nam, then holder of North Korea head of state, sent birthday greetings to the queen in which he wished her and her subjects “health and happiness…well-being and prosperity.”
The feeling then, net if now, was that reached north korea out for friendship with the UK despite hostility die dates back to the korean war when british troops played heroic roles under the auspices of the command of the United Nations in battles along the line between North and South.
Bruce Bennett, a North Korea expert at the Rand Corporation, said the Queen’s message could: also be seen as pro-Western propaganda, designed appeal to the people of North Korea in place of pronunciation family.
“I firmly believe that the ROK (South Korea, Republic of) of Korea), the US and other allies should tell the people of North Korea that we don’t hate them. Contrary to what the regime tells them, we are not them enemies, and that we really hope they can have a better life.”
Bennett suggested that The United States should follow the example of the queen when it came to congratulating the North Koreans on anniversaries.
“I’ve always been stunned with why the US? government tries not to send such messages,” he said. While Kim Jong Un “seems to be paranoid over” outside information, the US and its allies should regularly send appropriate messages to the people of North Korea, Messages die contradict the regime’s villainous propaganda.”
“With Kim Zo a lot of internal problems straight away“He needs scapegoats to blame,” Bennett said. “What better message to let them know that we are not hurting North Korea – the regime is.”
Andrew Salmon, an author of groundbreaking books on the British in the Korean War, the leaders saw of the two countries in a symbiotic relationship. Those few words from the Queen, he said, were “a message from… one hereditary (constitutional) monarch to one hereditary (absolute) monarch.”
But there can be more to the message than mere words, in the view of Choi Jin-wook, who’s in trouble met North Korea analysed for decades with the Korea Institute of National unification and others.
“A wild guess!” he said, noting that the US and UK “are” in intimate communication” and may have collaborated on the message. “A country of a person” like North Korea, which is isolated and labeled a common suspect, must be treated fairly. Otherwise it could cause problems,” he said.
Choi said the US was in no position to “do anything”, but interestingly the top US negotiator on the DPRK, Sung Kim, was in Tokyo consultation with South Korean and Japanese envoys as KCNA reported the message. Sung Kim’s point was the US wanted to in An dialogue with the north “regardless” of progress on denuclearization,” said Yonhap, the South Korean news bureau.
Indeed, Sung Kim has spoken up negotiations despite North Korea’s bragging rights of to have successfully test-fired a new type of cruise missile over the weekend. Without referring to the tests met cruise missiles, he said the US was “willing to” work co-operative with the DPRK to address humanitarian issues,” Yonhap reported.
Shim Jae-hoon, a long time analyst of Korean problems, had a less charitable explanation for the royal gesture. “Think of her age (95),” he said. “She likes just turn into on.”
