PYONGYANG - Kim Jong-un, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea, on Monday accepted condolences for his father's death from a Seoul's mourners' group at the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, the official news agency KCNA reported.

In the condolence book, Lee wrote that Chairman of the National Defense Commission fell in eternal sleep but she hopes that national unification will be realized under the spirit of the June 15 Joint Declaration at an early date.
