PYONGYANG, January 12 (Itar-Tass) —— The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has made a decision to keep the body of Kim Jong Il “the eternal leader of the party and revolution in compliance with the unanimous wish of all members of the party, military and of the people of the country,” reads a special statement of the political bureau of the Central Committee of the Korean Workers’ Party /KWP/ published on Thursday.
