Pyongyang, April 6 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, Thursday sent a message of greeting to Bashar Al-Assad, president of the Syrian Arab Republic who doubles as regional secretary of the Baath Arab Socialist Party.
The message extended warm congratulations to Bashar Al-Assad and the leadership of the Baath Arab Socialist Party and all party members on the 70th anniversary of the Party's founding.
The Baath Arab Socialist Party has achieved great successes in their struggle for building an independent and prosperous country and safeguarding the unity and dignity, regional peace and security for the past seven decades since its founding, it said, adding:
Today the Party is resolutely struggling to courageously shatter the vicious challenge and aggressive moves of the hostile forces at home and abroad and defend the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity under the leadership of Bashar Al-Assad.
Reiterating full support and solidarity of the DPRK to the just struggle of the Party and the Syrian people, the message expressed belief that the friendly and cooperative relations between the two parties and the peoples of the two countries forged through the common struggle for independence against imperialism would steadily grow strong in the future, too.
