Death of Kim Yong Ju, the primary dauphin of Kim Il Sung

Kim Yong Ju passed away according to the KCNA. Kim Yong Ju was the younger brother of Kim Il Sung. In the 1960s, Kim Yong Ju was supposed to be the successor of Kim Il Sung. However, due to health issues, he was replaced by Kim Jong Il, the oldest son of Kim Il Sung. I am mentioning Kim Yong Ju in some of my papers, including in a biography of Kim Pyong Il (the nephew of Kim Yong Ju) and in a paper published in SinoNK.com related to connections between the Kim family and the foreign trade of North Korea.
