Tokyo, May 29 (KNS-KCNA) — The General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) published guidebook “Chongryon” and album “Glorious Path Covered by Chongryon” in the run-up to the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Korea and on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the formation of Chongryon.
The guidebook introduces in detail what type of organization Chongryon is and what praiseworthy activities it has conducted as a model of the overseas compatriots movement under the paternal loving care of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
The guidebook recalls that Korean patriotic activists and compatriots in Japan made strenuous efforts to carry out Kim Il Sung’s policy of making a switchover to the Juche-oriented line and at last they formed Chongryon, the first overseas compatriots organization of Juche type, on May 25, Juche 44 (1955). It explains in a manner easy to understand the nature, the principle of activities, the organizational line-up and the structure of Chongryon.
It has such appendix as a diary of 50-year-long major activities and a chart on the distribution of its organs at all levels and schools under Chongryon.
The album carries in chronological order historical photos showing Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il receiving different delegations and visiting groups of Chongryon to the homeland and clearly indicating the ways to be followed by Chongryon at every stage and in each period during their trips.
Also seen on the album are photos and posters showing the patriotic movements waged by Chongryon officials and compatriots as campaigns involving all its organizations and compatriots, single-mindedly united around Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
