Kim Yong Nam Sends Message of Condolences to Widow of Vishwanath
Pyongyang, February 12 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, Wednesday sent a message to Santoshi Kumari, widow of Vishwanath, expressing condolences on his death of illness. Vishwanath was the secretary general of the International Kim Il Sung Prize Council and the International Kim Jong Il Prize Council and director-general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea.

Kim Yong Nam said in his message Vishwanath was a prominent socio-political figure who tirelessly worked hard for the independent development of his country and freedom and happiness of its people from his early years and a close friend of the Korean people and other progressives of the world as he devoted himself to the sacred cause of achieving human independence under the banner of the immortal Juche idea fathered by President Kim Il Sung and enriched in depth by leader Kim Jong Il.

Though Vishwanath passed away, his precious exploits will be always remembered by the Korean people and other progressives, the message added.
