Map of diplomatic missions in North Korea

This is a list of diplomatic missions in North Korea. At present, the capital of Pyongyang hosts around 25 embassies. Most are located in a special area of the city, known as the Munsu-dong Diplomatic Compound.[1] Several other countries have ambassadors accredited to North Korea in Beijing and Seoul.

In the absence of diplomatic or consular relations between the countries, Sweden serves as the protecting power for Australia, Canada, and the United States of America in North Korea.[2][3][4] The United Kingdom provides consular assistance to any Commonwealth citizen whose country is not represented in North Korea, with the exception of citizens of Singapore and Tanzania whose governments have opted out of this arrangement.

Several embassies have operated intermittently in the capital. Australia opened an embassy in Pyongyang in 1975 but was forced to close down after voting against North Korea in a UN resolution (Australia had plans to reopen its embassy but these have not been pursued).[5] Numerous countries including Albania, Yugoslavia, Iraq, South Yemen, Libya, Portugal, Sri Lanka and Hungary also had embassies in the capital that have since been closed. Nevertheless, some Western countries opened embassies in the early 21st century.[1] At present seven EU countries maintain embassies in Pyongyang. These are Germany, Sweden and the UK (these three share a compound), Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania and Bulgaria (these last two are not headed by Ambassadors but by Chargé d'affaires).

Brazil opened an embassy in July 2009.[6]

Russia, China and Pakistan maintain much larger embassies than most. Embassies of Russia and China are situated outside the Munsu-dong diplomatic area.
