  1. The DPRK never forgets any outer expression of friendship, always cherishes it. The International Friendship Botanical House, as well as the International Friendship Exhibition, tells its people, compatriots, and human kind the Korean mind. The DPRK materially on the ground shows who, and what, its friends and enemies are.
