AFP: China congratulates NKorea’s Kim on re-election


Chinese President Hu Jintao congratulated Kim Jong-Il on his re-election as leader of North Korea, state media said Saturday, amid widespread international condemnation of Pyongyang’s rocket launch.

Hu said in a message that Kim’s re-election on Thursday as chairman of the powerful National Defence Commission is an “expression of sincere support and profound trust”, Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

“I believe that the fraternal Korean people will surely register steady fresh successes in the construction of Korean-style socialism… under the leadership… headed by you,” Hu was quoted as saying.
