Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) — Six decades have passed since President Kim Il Sung advanced into Yangdok area during the anti-Japanese armed struggle.
Late in August Juche 27 (1938) when the Japanese imperialists’ fascist rule was at its height and the Korean revolution was undergoing severe trials, President Kim Il Sung, accompanied by some members of the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army, went to a secret base in Yangdok area of South Phyongan Province.
At the Namdaebong secret camp of the base, he convened a meeting of commanders of small units and political workers of KPRA and chiefs of underground revolutionary organizations. In his historic speech at the meeting, he put forth a new strategic and tactical policy of spreading out the flames of the anti-Japanese armed struggle to South Korea so as to step up preparations for all-people resistance on a nationwide scale.
On the anniversary, a meeting was held in Yangdok county on Sunday.
Ri Kil Song, chief secretary of the South Phyongan Provincial Party Committee and chairman of the provincial people’s committee, made a report at the meeting.
He stressed that Kim Il Sung’s advance into Yangdok area contributed to invigorating the KPRA’s military actions on a nationwide scale and uniting people of all walks of life as one for a sacred war against the Japanese imperialists and for Korea’s liberation.
A symposium was also held on the same day.
Present at the meeting and symposium were secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea Central Committee Choe Thae Bok and officials concerned.
