Kim Jong Un, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and president of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), visited the bier of Marshal of the Korean People's Army Hyon Chol Hae, general adviser to the DPRK Ministry of National Defence who is winner of Kim Il Sung Order and Kim Jong Il Order, on Friday to express deep condolences over his death.

Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, Jo Yong Won, Kim Tok Hun, Pak Jong Chon and Ri Pyong Chol, members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, and members and alternate members of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, members of the WPK Central Military Commission, leading officials of the Ministry of National Defence, commanders of the KPA services and commanders and political commissars of the army corps.

Amid the playing of dirge, the hall was wrapped in a bitter sorrow over the loss of a prominent political and military activist of our Party, state and revolutionary armed forces who was a soldier faithful to President Kim Il Sung and a revolutionary comrade-in-arms faithful to Chairman Kim Jong Il and the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

A wreath in the name of Kim Jong Un was laid before the bier of the deceased.

Placed were also wreathes in the names of the WPK Central Committee, the WPK Central Military Commission, the Standing Committee of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly and the DPRK Cabinet.

Kim Jong Un paid a silent tribute to the memory of Hyon Chol Hae, a veteran of the armed forces organ of the DPRK and a trustworthy revolutionary who performed distinguished feats in the sacred struggle to defend the sovereignty of the nation and the supreme interests of the country with the single-hearted and boundless loyalty and the spirit of devoted service to the Party and the revolution and the country and the people all his life.

With bitter grief over the loss of a precious revolutionary comrade who left an indelible and remarkable trace in the Party building and the development of the revolutionary armed forces with the absolute loyalty to the leader, the transparent revolutionary principle and uprightness, he went round the bier of Hyon Chol Hae.

Noting that Hyon Chol Hae had fully displayed matchless heroism and self-sacrificing spirit in the struggle to devotedly defend President Kim Il Sung for the past decades from the glorious days of his service in the bodyguard company during the grim Fatherland Liberation War and dedicated himself to the sacred cause of strengthening the People's Army into the revolutionary armed forces faithful only to the leader's guidance while acting as a close aide to Chairman Kim Jong Il pursuing the Songun revolutionary leadership during the Arduous march, the forced march, Kim Jong Un said that his death is a great loss to our Party, army and people, that can be compensated with nothing.

All the Party members, men and officers of the KPA and people should follow his loyalty and revolutionary faith, always remembering the brilliant life of the veteran revolutionary that was recorded as a gold star in the revolutionary armed forces' glorious history of feats, he stressed.

He expressed his deep condolences to the bereaved family of the deceased and warmly consoled them.
