Kumgang medicinal stone drink
Many Pyongyang citizens have a deep attachment to Kumgang medicinal stone drink.
“As an old saying goes, if you drink good water, you can live a long healthy life. Since I started drinking Kumgang medicinal stone drink, I got over my chronic gastritis, my blood pressure and blood sugar level got fixed and acne cleared up on my face,” said Jong Yong Ok living in Sochon-dong of Sosong District, Pyongyang.
Endless Diplomatic Friction
In the context of the aggravating political and military confrontation between Russia on one side and the US and the West on the other over the Ukrainian situation, antagonism and friction in the field of diplomacy also remain unabated.
In the wake of the Ukrainian crisis, the US and the West expelled more than 400 Russian diplomats in groups in a bid to tarnish the external image of Russia and isolate it in the international arena. These days, they are also applying all kinds of sanctions including the seizure of property, prohibition of entry and suspension of visa issuance against individual companies and citizens, to say nothing of the senior government officials, institutions and state-run enterprises.
