Ever since French President-elect Emmanuel Macron won his nation’s presidency in decisive fashion, he has been deluged with calls of congratulations and support from leaders all around the world.
However, the U.K. Daily Express reported that Macron received one call of support from a rather unlikely, and perhaps unwanted, source, that being the communist regime of North Korea.
The message came from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong Nam, who expressed hope that the two countries would be able to engage in improved dialogue that would “benefit people in both nations.”

It is worth noting that France and Estonia are the only nations that have not officially recognized the communist regime and therefore have no formal diplomatic ties with North Korea.
Business-Standard reported that the message was sent out via the state-run KCNA media outlet in North Korea with the hope that the new French leader would achieve “development and prosperity” that would bring about better relations between the two countries.
Kim also wished Macron “success in his responsible work for the development and prosperity of France.”

It is unclear how, or even if, Macron responded to the well-wishes and congratulations from the rogue communist regime, and we will refrain from speculating about any potential ties between the supposedly “centrist” former socialist party member and the regime that has taken socialism to its most extreme form.
Meanwhile, tensions between North Korea and virtually the rest of the civilized world continue to be at an exceptionally heightened state, as the communist regime insists on testing ballistic missiles and developing nuclear weapons in spite of numerous United Nations resolutions and widespread condemnation from the international community.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to let everyone know that new French President Emmanuel Macron just received congratulations on his victory from the North Koreans.
