Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the DPRK, received a congratulatory message from S. M. Mironov, Chairman of the “A Just Russia”, on January 13.
In his message, he extended congratulations to Kim Jong Un upon his election as General Secretary of the WPK on behalf of the “A Just Russia” and on his own behalf.
The General Secretary of the WPK has always been the symbol of the DPRK, he said.
President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, the preceding leaders of the DPRK, worked at the high post, taking absolute responsibility for the destiny of the Party, country and people, he recalled.
He also pointed out that Kim Jong Un‘s election at the high post of the Party shows that the leadership of the country is being carried forward despite internal and external threats and challenges hindering the efforts to successfully build a righteous socialist society, and is an expression of the firm will of the Party and the people to achieve social and economic successes based on self-reliance by their concerted efforts.
The DPRK has now entered a new phase in its history and the Party Congress set forth new far-reaching tasks for the country and the Party that require the whole nation to make devoted efforts, he said.
He wished Kim Jong Un good health, hoping that he would achieve success, displaying his untiring enthusiasm at his new post.
