Pyongyang, April 11 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, Sunday received a congratulatory message from Bashar Al-Assad, president of the Syrian Arab Republic.
The president in the message extended warm congratulations on behalf of the Syrian people and himself to Kim Jong Un and the Korean people on the occasion of the 105th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung.
The friendly two countries are celebrating this anniversary and, at the same time, conducting a war against big powers’ wild ambition to subject all countries to their expansionist and dominationist policy and deprive them of their rights to self-determination, the message said, adding: The two peoples of Syria and the DPRK are as ever struggling for their rights to self-determination and national sovereignty and the security and prosperity of their countries.
The message expressed belief that the relations of friendship and cooperation between the two countries would grow stronger in conformity with the interests of the two peoples.
