N. Korean media highlights leader’s love for people following Hanoi trip


North Korea’s main newspaper on Monday highlighted how much leader Kim Jong-un cares for his people in an apparent move to boost internal unity as he heads back home after a trip to Hanoi for a second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump. In an article titled “A great love and devotion for people’s happiness,” the Rodong Sinmun mentioned a list of places that Kim has inspected before and said the moves show his “noble” view of life that regards all the hardships that he encounters while working for the people as a pleasure.


“Our dear leader never is completely satisfied when it comes to working for the people,” it said. The article is seen as reflecting the regime’s intention to strengthen internal unity at a time when leader Kim has been out of Pyongyang for the longest period of time since he led the country after the death of his father and late leader Kim Jong-il in late 2011. Since Kim’s departure from Pyongyang on Feb. 23, the newspaper has touted his trip as a “great journey of patriotism and devotion for prosperity and peace.”


Kim is currently on his way back home after the two-day summit with Trump and an official visit to the Southeast Asian nation. His train is expected to reach Dandong station and then cross the Yalu River, also known as the Amrok River, near the border, on Monday night.
