Mr. Kim has sent his appreciation to the workers who devoted themselves to building the Wonsan-Kalma tourist zone, Rodong Sinmun, the North's newspaper said. The Korean Central Broadcasting Station carried a similar report.

North Korean state media KCNA on Monday published a letter from Mr. Kim to South African President Cyril Ramaphosa congratulating him on Freedom Day and affirming that the two nations' friendship would expand and develop.

The report came amid speculation concerning Kim's health since he missed an annual ceremony on April 15 commemorating the birthday of late state founder and his grandfather, Kim Il-sung.

But South Korean officials have dismissed such speculation saying nothing unusual was going on in the North and Kim is believed to be staying in the Wonsan region.
