Kim Jong-un Signs Condolence Book in Cuban Embassy over Castro’s Death

SEOUL – North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited the Cuban embassy in Pyongyang to express his condolences over the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, state-owned KCNA agency said Tuesday.

“Though the outstanding leader passed away, his name and feats will always be remembered by all of us. We feel pain of the loss of the great Comrade, the great comrade-in-arms,” Kim wrote in the condolence book.

Kim added that Castro’s death is a great loss for the governments and people of all countries, according to KCNA.

The North Korean leader also said Cuban revolutionaries will overcome the pain of the loss of their distinguished leader and build an ideal and prosperous society under the leadership of President Raul Castro, to whom he had sent a message of support on Sunday.

North Korea declared Monday a day of official mourning following the death of Fidel Castro, who had close relations with North Korea.

On Monday, Pyongyang also sent a delegation of high officials, led by Choe Ryong-hae – considered number three in the regime – to Havana to attend Castro’s funeral.

Fidel Castro visited North Korea in 1986, which was the only occasion he met with the country’s founder Kim Il-sung and his son and successor Kim Jong-il, grandfather and father, respectively, of the current leader.
