DPRK diplomats accredited to the UN are vital to U.S. relations with the Korean Peninsula. They serve as key facilitators for dialogue and engagement between U.S. actors in the private sector – such as NGOs, universities, think tanks, etc. – and their counterparts in the DPRK. In this respect, their active partnership is critical to the successful outcome of engagement efforts. As partners seeking mutual benefits, we are committed to understanding each other’s needs and deeply motivated to respond to those needs.
Cultural and Educational ExchangesEngagement between Americans and North Koreans on an ongoing, routine basis is an indispensable foundation for building trust and mutual confidence. Durable and mutually beneficial engagements between the U.S. and the DPRK have a decades-long history in educational and scientific endeavors, cultural programs, sporting events, and even tourism. The Androcles Project directors have many decades of experience arranging successful activities in these fields. The goal of these cultural and educational exchanges is to collaborate with partner organizations in the U.S., the Republic of Korea (ROK), and other relevant countries in facilitating sustained private sector exchanges that are mutually beneficial for the U.S. and the DPRK.
