Diplomacy has evolved ever since the ancient times and it is has taken longer period of time to reach where it is today with the steady human political, economic and social progress at different times. Diplomacy reflects the national character of a state based on the state’s distinct diplomatic characteristics and setting according to the political system and current position it has at the world politics. Because diplomacy is one of the major and main channels of conducting international relations among states and other important global actors through representation by assigning a diplomat to the host country and using other means too. It is based on these major concepts that this study analyzes the extent of the post-1990 North Korea’s diplomacy and its reflection on its national character. This study is mainly based on qualitative data and the researcher’s observation to point out the national character of North Korea by focusing on the key policies of the state which affects both its domestic and external aspects of relations and the major policy setting on its foreign relation which reflects its national character in the global politics and international relations of states and other major actors.
