The newly “independent” state of Catalonia (in theory at least) has found a rather unexpected ally, North Korea. While the rest of the world seems a little confused about how to react to events in Catalonia, the North Koreans and Kim Jong-Un obviously have no such qualms.
In a tweet from the DPRK News Service which is the “Official News feed of Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea” (North Korea to us) we gain this valuable insight. The service tweeted:
SPANISH CONQUISTADORS WARNED: Catalonia is free democratic socialist republic. MARSHAL KIM JONG-UN’S WORDS ARE BACKED BY NUCLEAR WEAPONS!
Finding hard to believe us? Here is the tweet next:

So, we now know that the North Koreans are backing Catalonia based on Socialist ideals it seems, it will be interesting to see which other countries follow in their footsteps.
