Additionally, the British embassy in Pyongyang reportedly held a reception to mark the occasion, with guests including the Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Vice-Minister of Foreign Trade.

Experts believe the note was sent as North Korea is looking for "new friends" because China is growing increasingly close to forging an alliance with South Korea.

Toshimitsu Shigemura, a professor at Tokyo's Waseda University and an authority on North Korean affairs, said: "North Korea is looking for new friends, while they have also sent officials to London to make money on the stock market and seek development aid.

"But there is also real concern in the leadership there that the regime could collapse without China's support, so they are looking for a country that might provide them with political asylum. It is possible that they think Britain might provide that."
