Carter sends condolence message to N. Korea over Kim’s death
I wish Jimmy Carter had sent condolences to the starved and murdered people of North Korea instead of their dictator Kim Jong Ill.
SEOUL, Dec. 22 (Yonhap) — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has sent a message of condolence to North Korea’s new leader Kim Jong-un over his father’s sudden death.
In the message dated on Monday, Carter extended condolences to Kim Jong-un and the North Korean people over the death of leader Kim Jong-il, the North’s official Korean Central News Agency reported Thursday.
Kim died of a heart attack on Saturday, according to North Korea’s state media.
Carter “wished Kim Jong-un every success as he assumes his new responsibility of leadership, looking forward to another visit” to North Korea in the future, the KCNA said.
In April, Carter traveled to North Korea along with three former European leaders, though he failed to meet with Kim Jong-il and his heir-apparent son, Kim Jong-un.
