A now-trending video capturing the moment North Korea’s President, Kim Jong-un, broke down in tears as he pleaded with mothers to give birth to more children has emerged online.
The video captured during a National Mothers’ Meeting in Pyongyang on Sunday, saw Kim Jong-un burst addressing thousands of North Korean mothers, pleading with them to have more babies to tackle the decline in the country’s birth rate, Sky News reports.
“Dear Mothers,” Kim Jong-un began, “Preventing a decline in birth rates and good childcare are all housekeeping duties we need to handle while working with mothers.
“These tasks include bringing up their children so that they will steadfastly carry forward our revolution, eliminating the recently-increasing non-socialist practices, promoting family harmony and social unity, establishing a sound way of cultural and moral life, making the communist virtues and traits of helping and leading one another forward prevail over our society, stopping the declining birth rate, and taking good care of children and educating them effectively.
“These belong to our common family affairs, which we need to deal with by joining hands with our mothers.”
