Pyongyang, July 6 (KCNA) — Officials and members of the Socialist Women’s Union of Korea held a symposium on the greatness of President Kim Il Sung at the Hall of Women on Thursday ahead of the 24th anniversary of his demise.
Among those present were Jang Chun Sil, chairwoman of the Union Central Committee, and other officials of the union.
Speakers said that the President is a gifted thinker-theoretician, prominent politician, outstanding strategist and tender-hearted father of the people whom the Korean nation acclaimed for the first time in its history spanning thousands of years.
They noted that the President is a peerlessly great man as he founded the immortal Juche idea and clearly indicated the way for the popular masses to carve out their destiny with its brilliant rays.
They pointed out that the President implanted his steadfast will to build an ideal society for the people in the programme of the Down-with-Imperialism Union at the outset of the Korean revolution and made a new history of the country’s prosperity, fighting his way across tens of thousands of ri in the bloody war against the Japanese imperialists, taking the untrodden path for nation-building and making his way in the war flames and virgin snow for postwar rehabilitation and construction.
They said that the President set forth the principle of Juche in ideology, independence in politics, self-support in the economy and self-reliance in national defense as the fundamental issue and lifeline of nation-building and maintained it with success.
They praised him as the lodestar of national reunification and the world’s elder statesman who set it as the supreme task of the nation to reunify the country and dedicated all his life to this cause so as to hand over a reunified country to posterity and made undying contributions to global independence.
His revolutionary exploits are more brilliantly shining thanks to the outstanding and seasoned guidance of the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, they added.
