North Korea

Sets clocks back

7 Aug, 2015

State news agency, KCNA, announces that North Korea will set its clocks back by 30 minutes to ‘Pyongyang time’ on August 15–the 70th anniversary of liberation from Japan. That will reset the time to GMT+08:30, as it was before Japanese colonization.

The wicked Japanese imperialists committed such unpardonable crimes as depriving Korea of even its standard time while mercilessly trampling down its land with 5,000 year-long history and culture and pursuing the unheard-of policy of obliterating the Korean nation.
