Pyongyang, June 29 (KCNA) — The opening ceremony of a month of international solidarity with the Korean people took place in Havana on June 22.
Present there were officials and members of the Cuban Committee for Supporting Korea’s Reunification and the Cuban Institute of Friendship with Peoples and teachers and students of the Chollima Middle School in Vieja District, Havana. And staff members of the DPRK embassy in Havana were present on invitation.
Addressing the ceremony, the principal of the school said the progressive humankind worldwide would always remember the immortal exploits of President Kim Il Sung in leading the grim Korean war to victory, highly praising the sagacity of his leadership.
Though Kim Il Sung passed away, he said, the world people including the Cuban people revere him as a defender of peace, the pattern for the international solidarity movement and the great leader in defending sovereignty.
The Korean people today, under the leadership of Kim Jong Il, are advancing dynamically, smashing at every step the moves of the U.S. imperialists to isolate and stifle the DPRK. The Cuban people are convinced that the Korean people will certainly emerge victorious in their efforts to build a great prosperous powerful socialist nation and achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country and world peace.
