Washington( CNN) At persons below the age of simply four years old, children in North Korea bow before monstrous photographs illustrating the three supreme leaders of the Kim dynasty — a ritualistic exhibition of obedience that exemplifies Kim Jong Un’s strategy to maintain his unquestioned grip on strength, a former North Korean diplomat told US lawmakers on Wednesday.

“Until now, the North Korean system has persisted through an effective and credible reign of terror and by almost perfectly foreclosing the free-flow of outside message, ” according to Thae Yong-ho, a former high-ranking North Korean official who defected to South Korea.

Thae was number two in the North Korean embassy in London before he escaped with his wife and two sons, arriving in South Korea in 2016.
