    THE FLYING OF THE NORTH KOREAN FLAG DOES NOT INDICATE ANY CHANGE IN BRITAIN'S DIPLOMATIC POLICY. FOREIGN OFFICE OFFICIALS ARE AWARE OF THE FLAG BUT HAVE DECIDED - UNOFFICIALLY - TO TURN A BLIND EYE TO ITS EXISTENCE.

    THE WORLD CUP CONTEST IS REGARDED IN BRITAIN AS A PURELY SPORTING ACTIVITY WITH NO RELATION AT ALL TO ANY POLITICAL CLIMATE THAT MAY EXIST BETWEEN THE HOST COUNTRY AND ANY OF THE PARTICIPATING NATIONS.
