Nordkoreas new time area for the rupture with the "imperialism".
According to the state press, North Korea is to move into a new time zones to highlight its freedom from the Japanese at the end of the Second World War. Currently, North Korea is in the same time zones as South Korea and Japan, which are nine hour ahead of GMT. In Pyongyang time, however, the watches are reset by 30 min on 15 August.
KCNA, the state press agent, said that "evil Japanese imperialists" "robbed Korea of even its default time" by converting watches during the war. At that time, the whole of Korea's coastline was a single nation, 8.5 kilometres ahead of GMT until Japan colonized it in 1910. The KCNA referred to civil servants who said that the move to introduce Pyongyang "reflects the unshakable belief and will of staff and individuals on the occasion of the seventy jubilee of Korea's independence.
Korea said the move could cause some short-term discomfort at the Kaesong joint North Korean and Korean Kaesong facility. There is no non-governmental organization that allows a country's time zones to be modified when the decision is made by the state. Samoa moved its time zones to the other side of the global date line in 2011 and lost a single tag to facilitate communications with its neighbors Australia and New Zealand.
North Korea is not the only land that has its own timezone. Venezuela in 2007 chose to turn back its watches by half an an hour because President Hugo Chavez wanted a "fairer allocation of sunrise" to its inhabitants. Today Venezuela is the only Venezuelan nation with a time of 4.5 hrs behind GMT.
Timezones in the United States. Mountain time zones refer to the time zones that observe the time in which seven consecutive hour intervals are deducted from the GMT (UTC/GMT -7). Mountain Standard Time (MST) is the name given to this. Time in this region is calculated from the mean sun time of the 105th parallel east of the Greenwich Observatory.
The Mountain daylight time (MDT) is the time at which six consecutive hour are deducted from the GMT (UTC/GMT -6). Use is made of this time during the daytime, which is during the sunny month of the year, as well as in early and late September, early in the year. The Mountain Time Zone is commonly referred to as Mountain Time (MT) in the United States and Canada.
Specifically, it is the mountain standard time in winter and the mountain light time, if the summer time is respected. Its name is derived from the fact that the Rocky Mountains, which extend from northwest Canada to the U.S. state of New Mexico, are almost exclusively in this time area.
Since 2007 the locale time changes from MST 02:00 to MDT 03:00 on the second Sunday in March and reverts to MST 02:00 MDT to 01:00 MST on the first Sunday in November. The majority of Arizona does not monitor DST, and during the vernal, summer and fall month it is at the same time as Pacific Daylight Time, although in Arizona it is still referred to as Mountain Standard Time.
Navajo Nation, most of which are within Arizona, observes summer time, although Hopi Nation, as well as some Arizona State offices that are within Navajo Nation, do not.
