PYONGYANG, July 30 (Itar-Tass) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un thanked on Tuesday nationals living abroad for their key part “in glorifying uneclipsed merits of great generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, as well as in strengthening of positions of compatriots’ organizations”.

He took part on Tuesday in a photo session with delegations of Koreans living abroad, who had arrived in the country for 60th anniversary of victory in the Fatherland Liberation War. This is what the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea officially calls the Korean War of 1950-1953 that ended with the signing of the Armistice Agreement.
Kim Jong Un expressed confidence that fellow countrymen living in foreign states “will make a great contribution to the process of independent and peaceful unification of the Fatherland”.
Delegations of Koreans living in Russia, China, the United States, Japan and some other countries were invited to the photo session.
The North Korean authorities gave much attention to delegates during the festivities marking Victory Day, which is celebrated on July 27.
