Donga Ilbo ("NORTH KOREA TO REDUCE SCALE OF FOREIGN NGOS ", 2004-08-30) reported that the ITAR-Tass Russian News Agency reported Saturday that the DPRK will reduce the number and scale of foreign NGOs by the end of 2004, which are actively working in Pyongyang as their headquarters. According to the report, the DPRK's Foreign Office is selecting the NGOs to expel from the country, and relatively small-scale NGOs will be the first target of the reduction. It was alleged that the DPRK made such a decision because members of some NGOs are engaged in works other than humanitarian aid.
Perhaps they mean NGOs like this or this. I hope not.
