Pyongyang, June 29 (KCNA) — Meetings, a book and photo exhibition and a film show were held in Italy and Guinea, a joint seminar under the title “The man-centered outlook on the world clarified by the Juche idea” took place in Costa Rica and a celebration function in Denmark on June 14 and 15 on the occasion of the 41st anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s start of work at the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the fifth anniversary of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
Miriam Pelegrini Feri, chairwoman of the Group of Dialectical Materialists of Italy, in a speech at the meeting said that after the start of his work at the Central Committee of the WPK, Kim Jong Il performed such immortal exploits as proclaiming the programme of modeling the whole society on the Juche idea and firmly uniting all the people around the Party.
Banou Keita, director general of the Kim Il Sung Institute of Agricultural Science in Guinea, in a speech at the meeting said that the publication of the June 15 joint declaration brought about a new phase in the movement for the reunification of Korea and aroused stronger desire and enthusiasm to achieve reunification among all the Koreans in the north and the south and overseas. This was attributable to the extraordinary wisdom and energetic activities of Kim Jong Il, he added.
The chairman of the Costa Rican Institute for the Study of Juche Idea and others in their speeches warmly congratulated Kim Jong Il on having successfully defended the dignity and sovereignty of the nation with his Songun politics, noting that he has developed in depth the Juche idea to be a perfect guiding idea of the present times and embodied it in the practice of the DPRK to bring about a stirring reality.
Anders Kristensen, chairman of the Denmark-DPRK Friendship Association, in a speech at a function pointed in detail to the recent exchange and cooperation between the north and the south of Korea, noting that the Korean people have achieved great progress in the cause of national reunification, smashing the bellicose moves of the Bush administration and reactionaries against the DPRK and reunification, taking the June 15 joint declaration as a banner of their struggle.
A message of greetings to Kim Jong Il was adopted at the function in Denmark.
