NEW YORK -
Move over Mexico, North Korea is the real birthplace of the burrito, at least if you believe the state media.
A propaganda video released by North Korea showed people eating burritos, described as "wheat wraps" in Pyongyang.
And a newspaper reported that they were originally invented in 2011 by Kim Jong-il, the current leader's father who died that year of a heart attack.
It is unclear why the claim was made. North Korea has dealt with food shortages for decades and they have reportedly worsened during the coronavirus pandemic.
