I am very happy for his tireless leadership and firm guarantee to ensure the continuity of the Cuban socialist cause from one generation to the next, Kim noted in an official statement.
The chairman of State Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) highlighted that the 8th Congress of the PCC demonstrated the faithful inheritance of the thought of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz.
I am confident that the Communist Party of Cuba and the Cuban people will fully defend the precious legacy of the veteran revolutionaries, firmly united around Miguel Diaz-Canel, and achieve great successes in their struggles to build a prosperous socialist State, he noted.
Kim reiterated the DPRK’s steadfast will to further enhance the fraternal relations of friendship and cooperation between the two parties and countries.
I would like to wholeheartedly wish dear Comrade Raul Castro good health and happiness, and may there be only triumph and glory for the PCC and the Cuban people, he concluded.
