North Korea to honour Castro with three days of mourning by Everest(m) : 4:19 PM On 2016

North Korea on Monday called for three days of mourning in the communist Asian country to honour former Cuban ruler Fidel Castro after his recent death.

The mourning period, which started on Monday, will last until Wednesday, state media reported, citing a decision by some of North Korea’s highest political bodies.

During the three-day period, flags at important public spaces and government buildings would be flown at half-mast.

The regime also sent a high-ranking delegation of mourners to Cuba.


“The feats he performed for the Cuban revolution and the fraternal relations of friendship between the two countries would remain forever,’’ a letter from North Korean politicians addressed to Fidel Castro’s brother, and current Cuban president, Raul, read.

Cuba is one of the few countries worldwide that has kept in close contact with the isolated regime in North Korea.

The two countries begin diplomatic relations in 1960.

In 1986 Fidel Castro travelled to North Korea for a visit.

Fidel Castro ruled Cuba for 47 years, while he died on Friday, at the age of 90.
