Pyongyang, September 24 (KCNA) — A meeting to welcome a delegation of the Palestine-Korea Friendship and Solidarity Committee was held here Wednesday.
Addressing the meeting, Chairman of the Central Committee of the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea Ryom Sun Gil, who is also Chairman of the Korea-Palestine Friendship and Solidarity Committee, said that the Korean people are rejoiced as over their own over the achievements scored by the Palestinian people in the protracted struggle for complete national sovereignty and that they would always stand firm by the Palestinian people in their just struggle.
Korea and Palestine are far away geographically, but the relations between the two countries have been cemented and developed invariably, because they are unshakable ones established and consolidated during a joint struggle for independence against imperialism, he said.
Head of the delegation Zakaria Abdul Rahim, a member of the Revolutionary Council of the Palestinian National Liberation Movement, assistant secretary of the Home Ministry of the Palestinian National Authority and chairman of the Palestine-Korea Friendship and Solidarity Committee, spoke next.
The Korean people and the wise leadership of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are enjoying deep respect from world’s people aspiring after peace and justice.
President Yasser Arafat and all Palestinians cherish best feelings about the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and the friendly Korean people.
Korea’s cause of reunification is the historic one to which Kim Il Sung had devoted his lifelong efforts and heart and soul, he noted, stressing he is sure that the cause will certainly be accomplished by Kim Jong Il, who is carrying through Kim Il Sung’s behest for reunification.
