Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan  

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has praised North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for putting up a “tough” resistance against the “imperialist” United States of America better than the Communist-ruled China.

Addressing a CPI(M) district committee meet in Kozhikode on Wednesday, he said North Korea was showcasing a better example in defending “imperialist” forces.

The CPI(M) Polit Bureau member said there was a general criticism that China’s fight against imperialist forces was not living up to people's expectations.

“North Korea has been adopting a tough anti-US stand. North Korea has successfully withstood the pressure exerted by the U.S.,” he said.

The Chief Minister’s statement came days after a flex board of the North Korean leader, brought out as part of a programme of the CPI(M) in Idukki district, was removed by the party after it triggered a controversy.

Local Left leaders later clarified that Mr. Kim’s photo was included by “mistake“.
