Pyongyang, September 1 (KCNA) — A celebration meeting and a seminar were held and a lecture was given in Lahore, Pakistan, the Indian Intellectuals’ Society for the Study of the Juche Idea and the Nongprat Community in Tharuang County, Lop Buri Province, Thailand, from Aug. 21 to 27 on the occasion of the 56th anniversary of the foundation of the DPRK.
C. R. Aslam, president of the Pakistan Socialist Party, in his speech at the meeting said President Kim Il Sung organized and led the arduous anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle to liberate Korea and found a genuine country for the people.
Abid Hussein, former chief of the Lahore City Supreme Court of Pakistan, referring to the exploits of Kim Il Sung in founding the DPRK, said leader Kim Jong Il is wisely leading Korea to a brilliant victory with his outstanding ability.
V. K. Chopra, chairman of the Indian Intellectuals’ Society for the Study of the Juche Idea, at the seminar said the DPRK under the Songun policy is displaying its dignity as an independent powerful nation on the globe today when imperialism is thrashing around in aggression, interference and arbitrariness. Only victory and glory are in store for the DPRK as long as the Korean people uphold the Songun policy of Kim Jong Il, he stressed.
Songchit Pullarp, chairman of the Organization for the Study of the Juche Idea of Thailand, at the lecture said the development of the DPRK is unthinkable apart from the unique Songun policy. The Songun policy enables the DPRK to achieve great successes today, he noted, adding: From the course of the development of the DPRK we should deeply understand the validity and originality of the Songun policy pursued by Kim Jong Il.
