North Korea (Korean: 조선MRChosŏn or literally 북조선MRPukchosŏn), officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK or DPR Korea; Korean: 조선민주주의인민공화국Chosŏn Minjujuŭi Inmin Konghwaguk), is a country in East Asia constituting the northern part of the Korean Peninsula, with Pyongyang as its capital and the largest city in the country. To the north and northwest, the country is bordered by China and by Russia along the Amnok (known as the Yalu in Chinese) and Tumen rivers, and to the south, it is bordered by South Korea, with the heavily fortified Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating the two. Nevertheless, North Korea, like its southern counterpart, claims to be the legitimate government of the entire peninsula and adjacent islands. There are some 12 major newspapers published in North Korea and many other smaller ones.[1] The most important newspapers are Rodong Sinmun, the organ of the Workers’ Party of Korea, and Joson Inmingun, the newspaper of the Korean People’s Army, followed by Chongnyon Jonwi, the Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League pape List of North Korean newspapers, news sites, and magazines for information on sports, history, jobs, education, tourism, lifestyles, travel, and business List of North Korean newspapers
