North Korean leader Kim Jong-il dies

by The British Asian Blog

Well well well, this is a shocker.  Kim Jong-il dies aged 69.  I wonder what is in store for North Korea, further more, I’m interested to see how South Korea reacts (if they do react that is) to this news.

North and South Korea have had a love hate relationship for a long time, the later to be more accurate in recent times.  What has kept both sides adrift is support from other nations with similar interests, for North it was China and for South it was the US.

No doubt, this news will come as a surprise to everyone, and the focus of the world will gradually shift from Kim Jong-il to his successor, his son Kim Jong-Un – who already was appointed not so long ago.

This indeed is an interesting news, the reaction of the world is going to be interesting.
