PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) -- North Korea is calling Kim Jong Un "Great Leader" as it hands another of Kim Jong Il's titles to his son and heir.
The powerful National Defense Commission on Friday said the country is "uniting around Great Leader comrade Kim Jong Un."
The commission also warned rival South Korea and the rest of the world not to expect any change after Kim Jong Il's death. The tough message comes as Kim's young son strengthens his position as supreme leader.
