Comrade Kim Jong Un said that he was very satisfied with the fact that he further deepened the genuine comradely friendship with Comrade Putin and reached excellent agreements consolidating the cornerstone of the DPRK-Russia relations in the new era, even though the latter’s stay in the DPRK was not so long, adding that it is the consistent stand of the WPK and the DPRK government to attach the utmost importance to the friendship and cooperation between the two countries and steadily develop them.

He warmly said that the WPK and the DPRK government will, in the future, too, extend full support and encouragement to the sacred cause of Russia for building a powerful country and achieving independence and justice, and that he and the Korean people will always be with Comrade Putin and the Russian people, wishing the president safety on his way back home.
