Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) — Papers here Saturday editorially commemorate the 12th anniversary of demise of President Kim Il Sung, calling for holding him in high esteem as father of socialist Korea for ever and glorifying his undying exploits performed in socialist construction for all ages.
Rodong Sinmun in its editorial says it is the greatest historic exploit performed by Kim Il Sung on behalf of the era, the revolution, the Korean people and human cause of independence that he built people-centered socialism under which the people have become the master of everything and everything serves the popular masses.
Noting that Korean socialism is socialism with a bright future as it is making dynamic progress on the basis of the foundation of eternal value provided by Kim Il Sung, the editorial goes on:
It is thanks to this solid foundation that the army and people of the DPRK are effecting steady upswing in every field of socialist construction, always full of conviction of sure victory and optimism.
Kim Jong Il, great brilliant commander of Songun, is standing at the head of the party, army and people of the DPRK working hard to accomplish the socialist cause of Juche started by Kim Il Sung.
He held aloft the banner of Songun and led the party, army and people along the path of attaching importance to the army and military affairs when the Korean revolution faced the most severe trial. This is shining as a special exploit performed in the way of carrying forward and accomplishing the socialist cause of Juche in all fields. His Songun politics, the main socialist political mode in the present times, is based on the Juche idea of Kim Il Sung and comprehensively crystallizes his Songun revolutionary leadership exploits and experience. Herein lie its scientific accuracy, revolutionary nature and tremendous vitality.
Under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il the party, army and people of the DPRK should successfully carry forward and accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche started in Mt. Paektu and remain true to the Songun revolutionary leadership and give full play to the advantages of Korean style socialism, the precious legacy bequeathed to them by the President, in order to ensure its eternal prosperity.
They should dynamically expedite the on-going general march of Songun revolution by inheriting the ever-victorious great traditions to make this significant year marking the 80th anniversary of the formation of the “Down-with-Imperialism Union” a year of most shining victory and exploits in the history of the party and the revolution in the DPRK.
Minju Joson calls on the Korean people to dynamically carry on their historic march for accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Juche to live a worthwhile life as eternal soldiers and disciples of Kim Il Sung.
