History and hostile relations
Denmark was one of the first countries to recognize North Korea during the Korean War. Diplomatic relations between Denmark and North Korea were established on 17 July 1973. In October 1976, Denmark closed the North Korean mission to Denmark, and declared the mission as persona non grata, after charges of black market import, sale of drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. Later Norway and Finland followed. North Korea closed their embassy in Denmark in 1998, because of their budget reducement.
In June 1983, Japanese Keiko Arimoto, who was studying in Copenhagen, was abducted by North Korean agents. The Government of North Korea later admitted the kidnapping, and listed her as dead.
After the ROKS Cheonan sinking in March 2010, by a North Korean torpedo, Danish Foreign Affairs Minister Lene Espersen condemned the sinking of the Cheonan, stating that it believed North Korea was responsible. The Minister called on North Korea to comply with its international obligations.
Danish relief and development non-governmental organization Mission East has as the only Danish NGO, direct access to North Korea. Mission East has delivered 52.5 tons of aid to the North Korean people who have suffered from the North Korean famine. DANIDA has two livestock projects in North Korea, which is financed by United Nations Office for Project Services and International Fund for Agricultural Development. Denmark offers North Korea humanitarian aid through multilateral organisations as Red Cross and the World Food Programme. Denmark tries to influence the development of democratization, respect for human rights and liberalization of the North Korean economy. In 2008, Danish aid to North Korea amounted 239 million DKK.
In 2009, Denmark invested 462 million dollars in North Korea.
