Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, received a message of greeting from Mahmoud Abbas, president of the State of Palestine and chairman of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, on Friday.
The message said:
Pleased to join you in celebrating the day of the country's liberation achieved at the noblest sacrifice of your people, I hope for progress and prosperity wanted by your country and people on behalf of the state and people of Palestine and on my own behalf on this occasion.
We attach importance to the DPRK-Palestine relations with the decades-long history.
The DPRK is a true friend who offered all possible assistance to our struggle to terminate Israel's occupation.
I am sure that your country will invariably adhere to the principled stand to put an end to the ceaseless military attack by Israel on our people, the war crimes which should be settled accounts with and denounced worldwide.
