Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) — A rally of youth and students was held at Kim Il Sung Stadium on Thursday to vow to implement to the letter the joint slogans published by the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Party.
The rally drew more than 60,000 young folks and students in Pyongyang.
The reporter and speakers at the rally called upon all the youth and students to ensure the absolute authority of leader Kim Jong Il in every way and devotedly implement the Party’s line and policy, deeply cherishing loyalty to him as their revolutionary faith and obligation.
They said the young people should actively join the Korean People’s Army, regarding national defense as their most sacred duty, take the lead in fully displaying the beautiful traits of assisting the army and making the whole society overflow with the traits of giving importance to the military affairs and, at the same time, defend the socialist class position, frustrating the enemy’s moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and ideological and cultural penetration.
Calling for giving priority to the development of the defense industry and making a leaping progress on the main fronts of the building of a great prosperous powerful nation including the agricultural front, they stressed, among other things, that the construction of the Paektusan Songun Youth Power Station entrusted to the youth league by Kim Jong Il should be completed in the shortest time possible.
By firmly building up its organizations at all levels into a crystal for devoted defense of the leader and a crack unit of single-minded unity, the youth league should fulfill its duty as the reserve combat unit and detached force of the Supreme Commander in the general march today, they said.
The reporter and speakers called upon the youth and students to fully display indomitable heroism and self-sacrificing spirit in the “100-day campaign” to repay with proud achievements the deep trust and expectation shown by the Party in putting them up as the vanguard and the shock brigade of the general march of Songun revolution.
Present at the rally was Kim Jung Rin, secretary of the WPK Central Committee.
