Pyongyang, January 10 (KCNA) – General Secretary Kim Jong Il received a letter of thanks from Takaaki Hada, elder brother of Ri Hwa Sun who had visited Japan as a member of the first hometown-visiting group of Japanese-Korean women.
In the letter he said the recent hometown visit of the Japanese women who are Korean citizens is a product of the loving care and bold decision of General Secretary Kim Jong Il, and extended wholehearted, deep thanks to him.
When he visited the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in 1986, he met with his sister thanks to the deep care of President Kim Il Sung and came to know that she was leading a happy life, bringing up her children as excellent pillars of socialism under the warm care of the President, he wrote.
All this which is inconceivable in Japan is a product of the guidance of President Kim Il Sung and General Secretary Kim Jong Il, the letter said.
Old as he is, he would make every possible effort for solidarity movement to hasten the normalisation of relations between the DPRK and Japan and the independent, peaceful reunification of the North and South of Korea, it added.
