Korean Friendship Association

About Us

The KFA was officially registered on November 13th of the year 2000, but it existed in Spain since 1990 under the name: Korean Friendship Association “September 9th”.

KFA “September 9th” Activities were limited because most members were teenagers without any financial support. There were public conferences and art exhibitions in different places in Spain.

In this letter date August 11th 1994, Mr. Yu Chang Un, DPRK’s Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador send a thanks letter to the KFA President.

By the end of the year 2000, Internet became mainstream and available for most people. At that time, there was not a single page with DPRK official information, but just fake propaganda from the CIA World Fact Book and the South Korean government. President Cao de Benos decided to change that situation and requested permission from the DPRK to build the first ever page with direct connection with the country. This is how the website was created.

The website was designed with Dreamweaver, and got big attention from the tech media that published some articles about it (Including an interview with the famous magazine Slate from Microsoft Corp). That interview gave a bigh push in terms of audience and brought the page to the first search position in Yahoo Search (The most famous search engine on that time).

On January 15th, 2001, the Korea-Spain Friendship Association sent a letter by post congratulating the registration of the KFA, the inauguration of and arranging the next visit to Pyongyang on April.

Since our first international branch of the KFA was inaugurated in UK, we approved a yearly KFA International Meeting with rotating place, where members have the chance to meet face to face, discuss activities and build personal relations.
