article imageKim Jong-un named 'supreme leader' of North Korean military

By Joe Gullo     Dec 30, 2011 in World
Son of long time ruler Kim Jong-il, Kim Jong-un, is named 'supreme' leader of the North Korean military. This comes after the 13 days of mourning for Kim Jong-il.
Yonhap News Agency says that Kim Jon-un will become the leader of North Koreans "1.1-million-strong military, the communist nation's media reported Saturday."
The announcement does not bring changes to the relations between North and South Korea and the rest of the world.
North Korea says, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "there would be no softening of its position toward South Korea's government after Kim Jong Il's death."
In fact, North Korea is threatening South Korea because South Korean president, Lee Myung Bak, "raised security alerts and did not send an official mission to pay condolences after the December 17th death of Kim Jong-il,"Bloomberg reports.
Kim Jong-il ruled North Korea since 1994.
