Pyongyang: In a first public reference to his uncle`s recent execution, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has spoken of the "elimination of factionalist filth" .
In a new year message broadcast on state TV, Kim said "resolute action" had strengthened the country`s unity, a leading news channel reported on Wednesday.
Last month North Korea announced it had executed Chang Song-thaek for "acts of treachery".

The move raised concerns of instability in the secretive nuclear-armed country.
