With the help of pets, the North Korean authorities intend to solve the problem of food shortages amid tough sanctions.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that domestic dogs are a symbol of вЂњcapitalist decadenceвЂќ and ordered their owners to hand them over for use as a meat source in restaurants. On Monday, August 17, The Daily Mail reports, citing its sources.
вЂњThe authorities have already identified all families that keep pet dogs, and they are forced under the threat of forcible confiscation to transfer the animals as meat for restaurants,вЂќ an informed source told the South Korean newspaper ChosunIlbo, cited in the publication by The Daily Mail.
At the same time, it should be noted that dog meat is a favorite delicacy in Korea, China, and some other Asian countries.
Earlier in North Korea presented a smartphone of the вЂњlatest generationвЂќ, called Kindalai7. The gadget was made on the instructions of the head of state Kim Jong-un.
