North Korea’s Suicides rate increase by 40 percent compared to the previous year – In a concerning development, the number of suicides in North Korea has seen a staggering 40 percent increase compared to the previous year, surpassing the death toll from starvation. North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has labeled this trend as a ‘betrayal of socialism’ and a form of treason, prompting him to issue a stern order to the citizens of the nation, urging them to refrain from taking their own lives. Local administrations have also been directed to take proactive measures to combat this rising issue.

The surge in suicides is primarily attributed to the prevalent hardships of hunger and extreme poverty experienced by many individuals in North Korea. While the precise figures remain undisclosed, the magnitude of the problem is undeniably alarming. South Korea has also witnessed a substantial 40 percent increase in suicides, further emphasizing the gravity of the situation.

Kim Jong Un has explicitly stated that suicide is a direct betrayal of the socialist principles the nation upholds. Consequently, he has mandated local authorities to proactively address and prevent such incidents. Kim has issued a stern warning that local administrators will be held accountable if suicide rates escalate within their regions. Recent meetings have been conducted to discuss this pressing matter, which has seen tragic instances of entire families taking their own lives. Troubled by these incidents, Kim has finally issued this directive to combat the growing crisis.

The ruler of North Korea already faces unease due to the warnings issued by South Korea and the United States regarding the use of nuclear weapons. Both countries have made it clear that Kim would face severe consequences if he were to employ nuclear weapons against either nation. In the midst of these tensions, the increasing shock of suicides within the country has added to Kim’s distress.

Efforts are now underway to address the rising suicide rates and safeguard the well-being of North Korean citizens. The situation highlights the deep-rooted challenges faced by the nation, both internally and externally, as it grapples with complex geopolitical dynamics while striving to combat this heartbreaking trend.
