Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) — The Group of Dialectical Materialists of Italy issued a special bulletin titled “July 8” on July 1 on the occasion of the 12th anniversary of demise of President Kim Il Sung.
The bulletin praised Kim Il Sung as the national hero who wisely commanded the anti-Japanese armed struggle, liberating the Korean people from the Japanese imperialists’ oppression, and defeated U.S. imperialism in the Korean war for the first time in history. His demise brought profound grief not only to the Korean people but to all people of the world struggling for liberation, freedom and national sovereignty, it noted.
Kim Jong Il has successfully carried forward the revolutionary cause started by the President, it said, stressing that he has not only firmly defended socialism in Korea but guaranteed peace in Asia and the rest of the world by pursuing an independent foreign policy based on the Songun politics.
