Pyongyang, September 5 (KCNA) — Working people in Pyongyang held a meeting on Sept. 4 to warmly welcome the Korea visit of the Swiss friendship and solidarity delegation.
Vice-chairman of the Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries Ryang Tal Ju who is also chairman of the Korea-Switzerland Friendship Association, in his speech said that the Swiss Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification and the Cultural Information Center on the DPRK in Lausanne, Switzerland, have conducted brisk activities to support the Korean people’s cause of national reunification and develop friendly and cooperative relations between the peoples of the two countries. In the course of this, many successes have been made, he added.
Close friends in Switzerland sent not a small amount of fund and food to the DPRK over years of heavy natural damage, he said, expressing the belief that they will in the future, too, consistently extend firm solidarity to the Korean people’s cause of justice with deep attention.
Head of the delegation Martin Lotscher, chairman of the Swiss Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification, said that the foundation of the DPRK by the President Kim Il Sung was a great turn in the history of Korea.
He noted that the Korean people are now working hard to overcome temporary economic difficulties under the clairvoyant guidance of General Secretary Kim Jong Il.
He wished them success in their efforts.
