Operator of N. Korea's presumed Facebook page says it is run by Pyongyang
By Sam Kim
SEOUL, Aug. 23 (Yonhap) -- The operator of a Facebook Web page displaying North Korea's propaganda material has claimed that the account belongs to Pyongyang and is run by an organ handling the communist state's relations with South Korea.

In a "note" responding to an inquiry by Yonhap News Agency, the operator of http://facebook.com/uriminzok said the site is run by a company under the Committee for Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, which is equivalent to Seoul's Unification Ministry.File photo
The response is the closest thing to a confirmation by North Korean authorities concerning a series of accounts that have opened starting last month on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
