Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) — Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un received a congratulatory letter from the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on July 17 on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of conferment of the title of the DPRK Marshal on him.
The conferment of the title of Marshal of the Republic upon you was a historic event of great significance in giving a steady continuity to the Songun revolution pioneered and led by the peerlessly great men of Mt Paektu and bringing earlier the final victory of the cause of the Juche revolution, the letter said, and went on:
You made sure that the country ranked itself among a few nuclear possessors and satellite manufacturers and launchers of the world and upgraded the position of the country to the world’s most powerful inter-continental ballistic rocket possessor through the successful test-fire of Hwasong-14.
During the past five historic years, you recorded the legendary epic of valuing the people and respecting and loving them, thus glorifying the country as the people’s paradise in which the people’s first principle is embodied.
Chongryon officials and Korean residents in Japan more firmly enshrine the faith that the happiness of Koreans in Japan will be guaranteed before long along with the prospering country in which all dreams and ideals of the people are coming true.
Chongryon will actively join in the grand advance for the reunification of the Koreans according to the proposal for national reunification clarified by you and make tangible contributions to building a powerful socialist country by displaying patriotic loyalty.
