NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Korea's state media on Friday (July 1) aired a video of its leader Kim Jong Un meeting with a visiting Cuban delegation. The video broadcast by the state-run television KRT showed Kim greeting the delegation led by Salvador Antonio Valdes Mesa, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (CPC) and vice-president of the Council of State of Cuba. The North's official news agency KCNA said the meeting took place on Thursday (June 30). During the meeting, Kim said that North Korea and Cuba are struggling against imperialism and the relationship between the two countries would grow stronger, KCNA added. North Korea launched two Musudan intermediate-range missiles on June 22, which were in continued defiance of international warnings and a series of U.N. Security Council resolutions that ban the North from using ballistic missile technology, which Pyongyang rejects as an infringement of its sovereignty. North Korea and Cuba established diplomatic ties in 1960.
