Pyongyang, September 12 (KCNA) — A meeting of solidarity with the Korean people who are struggling in defence of socialism centred on popular masses took place here on Sept. 11.
Present there were Shuhachi Inoue, director general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea (IIJI) and an “International Kim Il Sung Prize” winner, Vishwanath, director of the board of the IIJI and secretary general of the “International Kim Il Sung Prize” council, Guy Dupre, secretary general of the International Liaison Committee for Reunification and Peace in Korea and director of the board of the council, and members of the International Organisation for the Study of the Juche Idea and delegations and delegates of Juche idea study groups from different countries.
Yang Hyong Sop, Vice-President of the presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly and Chairman of the Korean Social Scientists Society, Kim Chol Sik, first vice-chairman of the society, other officials concerned and working people from all walks of life in the city were on hand.
Shuhachi Inoue said in a speech that with his outstanding guidance the respected marshal Kim Jong Il is leading the struggle to smash the anti-socialist, anti-DPRK moves of the imperialists and reactionaries and defend socialism centred on popular masses to a brilliant victory.
The important task in defending Korean socialism is to carry on a more vigorous work for studying and disseminating the Juche idea, he stressed, adding: it is important to further strengthen the international solidarity movement for peaceful reunification of Korea and peace on the Korean peninsula.
Speaking at the meeting, Kim Chol Sik said that the invincible might of the DPRK comes from the state and social system centred on the masses to which the Juche idea is applied. Our socialism is a scientific socialism based on the Juche viewpoint toward man, popular masses, and it is the most viable socialism, he noted.
He stressed the need to defend to the end the Korean-style socialism centred on the masses, the life and soul of the Korean people, under Kim Jong Il’s leadership.
Andria Velonandro An Selme, chairman of the Madagascan National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea, said that what is important in actively supporting and encouraging the Korean people in their struggle to defend socialism is to wage a vigorous struggle for independence against impeiralism in each country.
No force on earth can block the dynamical onward movement of the popular masses who are advancing along the road of anti-imperialist independence, the road of socialism, he stated. He assured once again that the African progressive people, who are following the Juche idea and taking the road of independence, will always stand on the side of the Korean people, no matter how the situation may change.
Guy Dupre said that since the first days of the foundation, the DPRK has set the reunification of the country as the supreme task of the nation, put forward the most just and realistic proposals and ways and made every possible effort for their realisation.
Under the wise guidance of General Secretary Kim Jong Il the Korean people, rallied close around him, will certainly achieve the reunification of Korea in an independent and peaceful way with the warm support of the world progressive people.
