Pyongyang, May 15 (KCNA) — Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un received a letter from the participants in the Asia-Pacific regional on-line seminar “Mt Paektu and Korea Today” on April 25.
The letter noted that the progressive people of the world are grandly celebrating together with the Korean people the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army founded by the great President Kim Il Sung, the 24th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s election as chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and the fifth anniversary of Kim Jong Un’s assumption of the top posts of the party and state of the DPRK.
Bearing in mind the philosophical meaning of Mt Paektu shining with the august names of the great leaders of the Korean people who are alive in the hearts of the progressives striving for independence, the participants recall the undying feats of Kim Il Sung who opened up the Juche era and built a socialist power independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, it said.
We also recollect with deep emotion the Songun leadership exploits of Kim Jong Il who had reliably protected the Korean-style socialist system, smashing the vicious moves of the imperialist allied forces, the letter stressed, adding:
In particular, we are deeply moved to see the fabulous miracles the DPRK is now working despite the persistent political and military pressure and sanctions by the hostile forces that have lasted for centuries.
The letter expressed belief that the Korean people would as ever staunchly advance along the road of independence, Songun and socialism chosen by themselves under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Un.
The participants in the letter affirmed that they would make every possible effort to successfully hold the Fifth International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt Paektu.
