North Korea prepares to resume diplomatic activities after three years: Reports

Pyongyang, Mar 28 (UNI) North Korea is preparing to resume diplomatic activities after three years of self-isolation in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.
The nation will rotate its foreign envoys in the coming months as leader Kim Jong Un gradually reopens his country after suspending almost all diplomatic travel in 2020, the sources said.
The renewed presence of North Korean officials abroad would increase engagement with the country and reportedly allow greater insight into its internal affairs, according to diplomats and analysts.
