OSC Views North Korea’s Leadership

The leadership of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is portrayed in a new chart (pdf) prepared by the DNI Open Source Center (OSC).  The chart includes the names, photographs and titles of dozens of senior North Korean officials, and also presents an illustrated family tree of supreme leader Kim Jong Il.

Like most other OSC products, this document has not been approved for public release, but a copy was obtained by Secrecy News.  See “2009 Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Leadership Chart,” Open Source Center, April 15, 2009.

A schematic rendering of the organization of the North Korean government was given in “DPRK Power Structure Chart” (pdf), Open Source Center, January 2009.
