Pyongyang, December 13 (KCNA) — A symposium took place at the Korean Hall in Tokyo on Dec. 10 to mark the 30th publication anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s work “On Further Improving the Work of Chongryon in Line with the Demands of the Developing Situation”.
Among its participants were Pae Ik Ju, vice-chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon), Kim Song Hun, director of the Department for Publicity and Culture of the Chongryon Central Standing Committee, and Chongryon officials in Kanto.
Ri Yong Su, director of the Korean Social Scientists Association in Japan, in his report at the symposium, referred to the greatness of Kim Jong Il, explaining about the work’s main idea and gist and the position it assumes in the history of the movement of Koreans in Japan and its historic significance.
The work, published on Sept. 15, 1986, serves as the eternal guidelines for the movement of Koreans in Japan whose truth and vitality have been confirmed through practice, the reporter said.
Other speakers mentioned the work’s validity and vitality, noting that the work underscores the need for Chongryon to steadily hold aloft the banner of the Juche idea and conduct on a fresh manner the work of consolidating its ranks in an organized way in line with new situation.
They said that creditably inheriting Kim Jong Il’s idea of building Chongryon, supreme leader Kim Jong Un has clearly shown the road ahead of Chongryon and the movement of Koreans in Japan in his works, including a letter dated May 25, while wisely guiding them.
