North Korea’s Kim Jong-un congratulates Queen Elizabeth on platinum jubilee

 



As Britain celebrates Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, Kim Jong Un, the leader of the secretive state of North Korea, sent a message of congratulations to her.


Friday was the second of four days of pomp, parties, and parades to honor the 96-year-old monarch's 70 years on the throne, which is a record.


In a message from June 2, Kim said, "I want to congratulate you and your people on the National Day of your country, which is also Your Majesty's birthday."


In 2000, Britain and North Korea set up diplomatic ties.


North Korea is one of the few places the queen, who is also the leader of 14 other countries like Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, has never been to during her long reign.


She has, however, been to South Korea on a state visit.
