North Korean leader watches 'Mass Games' with Cuban President



Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel watched a massive performance known as the 'Mass Games' alongside North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, state media reported on Tuesday (November 6).

North Korean state-run television KRT released a video of Kim, Diaz-Canel and their wives watching the show titled "The Glorious Country" in the May Day Stadium on Monday (November 5). North Korean dancers were seen waving Cuban and North Korean flags during the performance, which in the past has produced some of the most iconic images of the isolated country.

Diaz-Canel and his delegation arrived in Pyongyang on Sunday (November 4) for meetings with North Korean counterparts to discuss ways to boost bilateral ties, according to the North's official news agency KCNA.

North Korea and Cuba established diplomatic ties in 1960. They are the last in the world to maintain Soviet-style command economies, though under President Raul Castro, the Caribbean nation has taken some small steps towards the more market-oriented communism of China and Vietnam. (Reuters)
