Message of Sympathy to Palestinian President
Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Nam, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, Thursday sent a message of sympathy to Mahmoud Abbas, president of the State of Palestine, in connection with the fact that thousands of casualties were caused by Israeli occupation troops' bloody clampdown on the Palestinian demonstrators protesting against the relocation of the U.S. embassy in Kuds.
Kim in the message expressed deep condolences to the victims and their families.
He vehemently denounced Israel for its brutal massacre and indiscriminate use of violence against the peaceable demonstrators demanding their legitimate rights.
He reaffirmed the DPRK's invariable support and solidarity with the just cause of the Palestinian people to build an independent state with East Kuds as its capital and gain their inalienable legitimate rights including the rights of the State of Palestine. -0-
