The reporter and speakers put stress on further exalting the nation-building exploits of President Kim Il Sung, the father of socialist korea, this year under the slogan “Let Us Greet the 50th Anniversary of the DPRK as a Grand Festival of Victors in Socialism !” they also called for working hard to make the country, the motherland more prosperous in the indomitable revolutionary spirit and with the working style displayed during the “arduous march”.
They appealed to officials, party members and other working people in the capital city to defend General Kim Jong Il in the spirit of defending the leader at the cost of life and in the spirit of human bombs and to become forerunners at all times in securing his absolute authority in every way, in order to build the politico-ideological fortress of socialism as firm as rock.

In order to successfully carry out the vast tasks for this year, the Juche character and national character should be firmly maintained in the revolution and construction, socialist principles be thoroughly adhered to in all domains of social life and the party be strengthened, so as to iron out all problems arising in socialist construction with the political and ideological might and with the might of collectivism, they stressed.
