UK to boots English education in the DPRK

According to KBS:

The British government is planning to expand its English education program in North Korea as the U.K. considers it having positive effects on bilateral relations.

Voice of America reported that U.K.’s Foreign Office Minister Lord Howell said Wednesday that the English programs will be expanded from three universities to six universities by the end of the year.

The minister also said the British government signed a memorandum of understanding with a North Korean educational committee last month on a new plan to operate English teaching programs for the next three years.
