North Korean, German universities sign exchange agreement

Kim Il Sung University, North Korea's most prestigious institution of higher learning, has established an exchange and cooperation relationship with Germany's Berlin Free University in the field of humanities and sociology.

The German university said Monday that it signed a protocol on exchange and cooperation with Kim Il Sung University in a ceremony held in Pyongyang last Thursday.

It noted the signing ceremony was attended by Thae Hyong-chol, president of the North Korean university, and Lee Eun-jeong, head of the Institute of Korean Studies at Berlin Free University.
