Kim Jong Un , Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, received a reply message from Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, on June 15 after he wrote to Mnangagwa in April on the occasion of Zimbabwe’s independence celebrations.

Mnangagwa sounds to be enticing the Koreans for an unspecified future relationship.

Mnangagwa as State Security Minister in the early eighties entices the North Koreans to train the notorious Gukurahundi soldiers who went on to kill over 20 000 Zimbabweans in the Matabeleland region.

The reply message reads as follows:

I acknowledge, with appreciation, receipt of your kind and thoughtful message on the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of the Independence Day of Zimbabwe.

Our two countries share a close historical relationship which continues to grow since Zimbabwe gained independence on 18 April 1980.

I look forward to closely working with you to strengthen bilateral relations and to further consolidate the bonds of solidarity that exist between our two countries, for the mutual benefit of both nations and peoples.

Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
