North Korea will build a second ski resort to attract foreign tourists

The authorities of the DPRK plan to build a second ski resort near the resort opened in January at the Pass Masik, the association of Russian ski sports informs.

The date of commencement of construction has not yet been determined. It is also unknown how long it will take to build a new resort. However, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Nu already said that he intends to attract foreign tourists to the country and increase the currency flow to the state treasury, the association's website notes.

The first ski resort was opened in late January 2014 year. Since North Korea is subject to UN sanctions, which, in particular, prohibit the importation of luxury goods and sports equipment, the equipment for the resort at the Masik Pass was allegedly secretly delivered from China.

The DPRK is one of the most closed countries in the world. In 2005, North Korea declared itself a nuclear power, after which it conducted underground nuclear tests at 2006, 2009 and 2013. The response to this was the imposition of UN sanctions.
