Orascom Telecom Holding has rolled out 3G in Pyongyang. Orascom is located in Egypt, and is a direct competitor to Vodafone Egypt. Orascom also has arranged a deal to rollout a network in Iraq. The Party states that this will enforce the friendly relationship between DPRK and Egypt.
Interestingly, Vodafone seems to be interested in buying Mobilink, which is a Pakistani Opco, owned by Orascom.
Geez, it's all spaghetti.
