Pyongyang, June 4 (KCNA) — DPRK’s leading newspapers Sunday dedicate editorials to the 80th anniversary of the victorious Pochonbo battle commanded by President Kim Il Sung.
The Pochonbo battle was a historic event that turned the nation’s history to liberation from statelessness and ushered in a turning phase in the anti-Japanese armed struggle, says Rodong Sinmun.
It goes on:
The battle recorded the most shining page in the history of the anti-Japanese revolutionary war and greatly encouraged the oppressed people of the world in their national liberation struggle.
The battle helped all Koreans and progressive mankind deeply enshrine the image of the President as the legendary hero of the nation and peerlessly patriot. It also dealt a serious political and military blow at the colonial ruling system of the Japanese imperialists.
That’s why the Pochonbo torchlight has since served as the indomitable symbol of the Korean revolution and the dynamic driving force of the nation-wide struggle for national independence and independent development.
The Pochonbo torchlight will be everlasting along with the ever-victorious history of heroic Korea thanks to the immortal revolutionary idea of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, the tested guidance of respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and the inexhaustible national power.
Minju Joson says that the flame of Pochonbo kindled by the President will continue to flare up as the one of eternal victory under the leadership of Kim Jong Un.
