VLADIVOSTOK, April 21. /TASS/. Kim Il-sung’s house restored after a devastating fire was unveiled at the border of Russia and North Korea on Thursday, the press service of the Far Eastern Railways said.
The Far Eastern branch of Russian Railways is in charge of the building marking friendship between Russia and North Korea.
North Korea’s consul general in Vladivostok attended the unveiling ceremony.
A modest wooden house of 100 square meters was built in 1986 at the border with North Korea near the Hasan border checkpoint in honor of Kim Il-sung’s visit to the Soviet Union. As the North Korean leader was travelling by train, several houses were built on his route. They all have a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen providing rest and a night’s sleep.
After the visit, a museum was opened in the building but on 12 November 2015 the house was flattened by the fire.
