Indonesia, DPRK bilateral ties
Indonesia and DPRK have established good bilateral ties since the 1960s following the good friendship of the first Indonesian President Soekarno and President Kim Il Sung. The two former leaders visited each other in 1964 and 1965.
According to Indonesia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry website, the two countries establish cooperation in the areas of economic and trade, political, and cultural.
Indonesia has a very good image in the eyes of the government and the people of DPRK. Products from Indonesia such as food, beverages, and household are very popular there.
Besides, the Embassy of Indonesia had the honor to showcase orchids during the previous Kimilsungia Flower Festival in Pyongyang.
Back in 1965, President Soekarno presented President Kim Il Sung with orchids as a gift during his visit to the botanical garden in Bogor Palace on the outskirts of Jakarta. The flower has become the symbol of friendship between the two nations ever since.
