20:42, December 26, 2011

PYONGYANG, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- A leading Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) newspaper said Monday that Kim Jong Un had taken over leading the country the day after top leader Kim Jong Il died.

In an article entitled "Today and Tomorrow of Songun Korea," Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), said all the DPRK's work was being firmly carried out under the leadership of Kim Jong Un.

During the nine days of the national mourning, the country's politics had remained stable, which showed the utter support and trust of the army and people in the heir of their leader, the article said.

Under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Un, all servicepersons of the Korean People's Army have affirmed their faith of defending the WPK central committee with their lives, it said.

The whole WPK is running flexibly under the exclusive leadership of Kim Jong Un and all party organs are fully supporting him, it said. The DPRK's revolution and construction are advancing according to his intention, it added.

Kim Jong Il passed away on a train during an inspection tour on Dec. 17. The DPRK media has repeatedly affirmed Kim Jong Un's top leadership in recent articles and commentaries since his father's death.
