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.
