The mobilization reserve of the DPRK is currently estimated at 4 million 700 thousands of people, but these are very approximate numbers.. Mobilization resources are estimated at 6 millions 200 thousands of people.
The term of service in the Korean People's Army for men is 10 years, for women - 3 of the year. Such impressive service lives are necessary, given the small population of the country while the DPRK is in constant confrontation as South Korea, as well as the USA, and Japan.
