    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sent a “personal letter” to South Korean President Moon Jae-in Wednesday, Blue House spokesman Yoon Do-hyun said Thursday.

    In the letter, Kim conveyed “his message of comfort” to the South Korean people who are battling the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Yoon said.

    Kim said he remains confident that South Korea will prevail in this fight “without fail” and wished for good health of the “brethren in the South,” Yoon added.

    The North Korean leader also expressed that he was “worried” about President Moon’s health and wrote of his frustration that there “isn’t much that he can do to help at this moment.”

    Kim underlined his “unwavering friendship and trust” towards President Moon and added that he will continue to “quietly send his best wishes” for the South Korean leader to overcome the coronavirus outbreak.

    Yoon added that Kim also expressed “his candid thoughts” on the situation in the Korean Peninsula.

    President Moon replied Thursday and “conveyed his gratitude through a personal letter to Chairman Kim,” Yoon revealed.
