Senior officials in the DPRK have vowed to remain faithful to Kim Jong-un following the mourning period and laying to rest of his father. The new leader has paid respect five times to Kim Jong il at Kumsusan Memorial Palace in Pyongyang.

The DPRK’s official news agency called Kim Jong-un the supreme leader of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK on December 24th. It also referred to him as the wise leader of the party, country and army in a report on December 27th.

While the DPRK has said it will continue to pursue its military-first policy, senior officials have said the country will become strong and prosperous under the leadership of Kim Jong-un.
