From Naenara Key to Independent Development



Today, independence shines as a byword for praising the immortal exploits President Kim Il Sung performed century after century, and the idea and lines on independence serve as an invincible banner of life and struggle for the world progressives.



Independence is our life. The only way out for our living is just to maintain independence. We return home with this precious key provided by the President.



This is what the head of a government friendship delegation of Burkina Faso said when he met with the President during his visit to the DPRK.



In the 1960s Burkina Faso declared itself independent and made every possible effort to defend its political independence. In order to make its economic development, it mapped out a five-year plan for its socio-economic development and buckled down to the work. But, as the plan was based on 80% of its fund on foreign capital, the country was faced with various challenges. This being the situation, its government dispatched a delegation to the DPRK in order to receive the instructions of President Kim Il Sung on building a new society.



The President met the members of the delegation and acquainted himself with the situation of their country. He told them in the following vein: In order to maintain one’s political independence it is necessary to increase one’s economic power. The people of economically backward countries are to be naturally infected with worship of the developed countries. If one is wedded to worship of big countries and dependence on them, he or she will make little of his or her own things and think well of everything of others. After all, one will follow them blindly. It is a mistaken idea to harbour high expectations of the “aid” from the West.



And he told them the following edifying episode: It happened when the DPRK tried to build its first pumping station. At that time, our country had no ability to produce a water pump by its own efforts, so it sent letters of making a request for pumps four times to a certain country. But the latter sent only several pumps. We could not complete the irrigation projects of the whole country that way, so we decided to produce water pumps by our own efforts. At first, we were confronted with a series of setbacks because of poor experience. But we tackled it with determination and, before long, we succeeded in turning out large-size water pumps. With those pumps, we finally carried out the irrigation projects.



Deeply moved to hear the story, the head of the delegation said to the President that he could clearly understand independence was the key to all the achievements of the DPRK.



In September, Juche 70 (1981), the President met the first vice-chairman of the Venezuelan Movement towards Socialism. Affirming the lines and policies of the movement, he said that it was very important to have faith in the strength of the popular masses who have independence and creativity and solve all problems in reliance upon their strength. The source of our invincible might is that we have the Juche idea and all the people are armed with the Juche-oriented view of the world, he stressed. Listening to his instructions, the first vice-chairman convinced that his theory on independence was an all-powerful key to building a new society.



In June Juche 81 (1992) the chairman of the Swedish Communist-Workers’ Party asked the President to give instructions concerning the practical ways to rebuild the socialist movement on a worldwide scale. The President clarified as follows: In the light of the historical lessons of the socialist movement it is very important to firmly maintain independence in the struggle for socialism. The parties of each country should confidently advance along the road of socialism under the unfurled banner of independence in keeping with the requirements of the present times. As each country has its own conditions, so there are not and will never be all-purpose solutions that fully conforms to the actual situation of each country. We think that all parties should make revolution and construction in their own way with independent stand. The DPRK should carry on the revolution and construction in Korean style, and Sweden in its own way.



As seen above, President Kim Il Sung was an extraordinary veteran statesman who implanted the spirit of Juche and the idea of independence into the hearts of the world progressives and opened up a new era of independence in which the popular masses push ahead with the revolution of their country in an independent way, free from domination and submission.

Paektu on a regular basis.
The admiration of the world progressives towards the illustrious great persons of Korea, and their expectation and interest in this festival, has grown up further as various international politico-cultural events have been organized in between February, 2002, when the 'Gathering to Greet the Sun of the 21st Century' was held on the occasion of the 60th birth anniversary of His Excellency KIM JONG IL, and the 5th International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu in August last year. Today this resulted in the formation of the organizing committee.
At the inaugural meeting, a report and speeches were made, which followed with the election of Co-chairs, Vice-chairmen and constituent members of the Organizing Committee of the International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu. The meeting decided to form a Secretariat and its members to be appointed.
The formation of the Organizing Committee is of great significance in giving wider publicity to the career and exploits of the illustrious great persons of Korea by further developing the International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu in its size and scope as a grand politico-cultural intentional festival of the progressive mankind; significant also in building a new just and peaceful world by applying the ideologies and realizing desires of the illustrious great persons of Korea.

1. The Organizing Committee shall further develop the International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu into a grand international politico-cultural festival of the world's progressive peoples.
Defining the Declaration of Mt. Paektu adopted at the 'Gathering to Greet the Sun of the 21st Century', and the Paektusan Declaration-2017 in the 5th International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt.

The Organizing Committee, on the major significant occasions in between the festivals, shall organize various politico-cultural events, which introduce and promote the immortal exploits of the illustrious great persons of Korea.
For the immediate future, it shall push ahead with the preparation to organize the 6th International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu in Pyongyang and in the Mt. Paektu area in 2022, a year in which we mark the 110th birth anniversary of His Excellency KIM IL SUNG, the 80th birth anniversary of His Excellency KIM JONG IL and the 10th anniversary of His Excellency KIM JONG UN's appointment into the highest post of the Party and state of Korea.
2. The Organizing Committee shall widely organize and unfold the activities in support and defence of the Korean People in their struggle for just cause.
Today the U.S. and its vassal forces are making last-ditch attempts to stamp out the DPRK’s sovereignty and rights to existence and development and to exterminate socialist Korea once and for all on this planet.
However, the Korean people, under the wise leadership of His Excellency KIM JONG UN, are firmly safeguarding the national sovereignty and dignity, performing miracles admired by the world – this heroic struggle of the Korean people give a strong impetus to accomplishment of the cause of global independence, and it becomes a common desire of the progressive mankind aspiring to peace and independence to support and defend Korea.
The Organizing Committee shall condemn the most heinous sanctions and blockade schemes of the hostile forces against the DPR Korea, the bulwark and the banner of the anti-imperialist forces of independence, and champion Juche Korea. At the same time, the Organizing Committee shall coordinate on a worldwide scale to widely organize the international solidarity movements in support of the Korean people in their struggle to frustrate moves of separatist forces at home and abroad and achieve the national reunification under the banner of national independence.

3. The Organizing Committee shall launch widespread campaigns to realize genuine international justice and build the independent world.
Today, the world progressives feel more keenly with each passing day that by adhering to the ideologies and the cause of the illustrious great persons of Korea, they will be given a right path to building the new independent world, where independence and equality of all the countries and nations are guaranteed without domination, subordination, aggression and intervention.
In joint efforts with the different parties, organizations, international organizations across the world,  and the world's progressive peoples aspiring to independence and justice, the Organizing Committee shall be in the vanguard of carrying on the struggle to denounce and reject the moves for aggression and war, and intervention in the domestic affairs of smaller countries perpetrated openly by the imperialist and dominationist forces under the pretext of 'democracy' and 'defending human rights', and to build an independent new world.
The Organizing Committee of the International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu, imprinting once again on the minds the desire and the expectation of the world progressives, will fulfill its honorable mission and duty in its efforts to build the new world as befits the ennobling wishes of the illustrious great persons of Korea.

        London 19th of April Juche 107(2018) 
Today Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England,  the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification (BSCPRKP),issued a joint statement on the occasion of the 58th  anniversary of the April Popular Uprising in south Korea.(referred to in south Korea as the "April 19th Revolution").
In April 1960 a mass uprising against the corrupt rule of south Korean puppet fascist dictator Syngham Rhee took place .Rhee had lived in the US in the 20s and 30s and had been brought back to south Korea in the 1940s by the Americans as their puppet.His rule was oppressive, corrupt and dictatorial and also turned south Korea into a colony and dependency of the US. Millions were killed by the Syngham Rhee puppet regime.
                                                        

The April popular uprising was an explosion of the peoples wrath against Syngham Rhee and against the colonial rule of the US in south Korea.It was an anti-US anti- fascist struggle as well as a struggle for the independent reunification of Korea.   As the great leader President KIM IL SUNG said
"The massive Popular Uprising in April 1960, in which the student youth of south Korea played the central role, overthrew the puppet government of Syngman Rhee, an old minion of US imperialism. This was an initial victory in the south Korean people’s struggle, and it dealt a heavy blow to the colonial rule of US imperialism.
The collapse of the puppet Syngman Rhee government signified, above all, the bankruptcy of all its anti-popular policies and its notorious “march north” outcry.
In their heroic struggle the people of south Korea demonstrated the revolutionary mettle of the Korean people, gained valuable experience id lessons and were greatly awakened politically.
After the April Popular Uprising, the situation in south Korea rapidly developed in favour of the revolution, and the masses became ore courageous to fight against US imperialism and its lackeys, for the dependent, peaceful reunification of the country"
The April Popular Uprising was a great anti-fascist , anti -imperialist uprising that opened a new chapter in the  history   of the struggle of the south Korean people for independence, democracy and reunification. It showed that  the'peaceful road' to change is but an illusion and that only by a violent uprising can the popular masses liberate themselves and achieve independence.
                    The April Popular Uprising was a great inspiration to the peoples of Asia in their liberation struggle and also to national liberation struggles throughout the world.
                 Our organisatoons solemnly remember those who died in the struggle and pay a high tribute to their memory.The spirit of the April Popular uprisers is still alive today.
We support the struggle of the Anti- Imperialist National Democratic Front of south Korea and south Korean revolutionaries to realise democraticisation,independence and  reunification.
LONG LIVE THE MEMORY OF THE APRIL POPULAR UP-RISERS

ASSPUK,JISGE,UK KFA and BSCPRKP on the 86th anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army

 ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk 
                                 



 London 18th  of April Juche 107(2018)
 The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP)today issued the following joint statement on the occasion of the 86th anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army(KPRA) the forerunner of the modern Korean People's Army on the 25th of April.
    We Juche idea-Songun idea followers and friends of People's Korea in the  UK applaud the 86th anniversary of the foundation of the KPA(25 April 1932) at a time when the KPA commanded by the dear respected leader  Marshal Kim Jong Un is defending the achievements of Juche Korea from US imperialist aggression and is standing in acute confrontation with US imperialism. It is the KPA that is the only armed force in the world to have the slogan "Let Us Wipe Out the US imperialist aggressors ,sworn enemy of the Korean people!". This is a most militant anti-imperialist revolutionary slogan that expresses the uncompromising will of the KPA soldiers to settle accounts with US imperialism.
   The foundation of  Anti-Japanese Peoples Guerrilla Army, in 1932, by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung, a gifted military strategist and ever -victorious iron willed brilliant commander, constitutes the bedrock of the Songun revolution .
   The Korean People’s Army, under the wise leadership of the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung, took over and carried forward the traditions of the anti Japanese armed struggle. It is based solidly on revolutionary comradeship. Moreover a tradition of army -people unity was created and today flourishes in Songun Korea.
                                         
                                                     
Under the wise leadership of the great generalissimo's  Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il the KPA grew into steel strong ranks each soldier being a match for a hundred enemy soldiers.The KPA inflicted a crushing defeat on the US imperialists in the great Fatherland Liberation War of 1950-1953.The KPA also defeated the US in the ‘Pueblo incident’,'EC121 incident’, ‘Panmunjom incident’ of 1976 and the 1994 helicopter shoot down incident.  
                                                                       
  The KPA became a true Juche orientated revolutionary armed force and is the army of the party,the working class and the leader. New theories of warfare have been created.'Moreover under the leadership of the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung the KPA stuck to class and revolutionary principles, the revisionist and opportunist " non class" theories were soundly smashed, The leadership of the party over the armed forces was maintained and enhanced unlike some countries where socialism was frustrated.The KPA is truly an anti-imperialist , anti revisionist army.
   The might of the KPA was further strengthened under the leadership of supreme commander Kim Jong Il ,who practised Songun politics giving priority to the KPA regarding it as the central pillar of the revolution. The KPA under the Songun revolutionary leadership of the great leader the KPA grew stronger in terms of ideology and politics but also materially. It is now equipped with the latest weaponry and has its own independent deterrent force. The KPA under the command of the Songun supreme commander Kim Jong Il and respected general Kim Jong Un smashed the provocations of the south Korean puppets in November 2010 turning Yongphyong island into sea of flames.
 Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un  has implemented the great revolutionary line of building the economy and nuclear force in parallel thereby strengthening the nuclear deterrent force of the KPA
exponentially. Now the DPRK and KPA are the proud possessors of the H bomb. The DPRK nuclear deterrent is a nuclear "Yongil bomb" , a totally self-reliant and Juche-orientated nuclear deterrent.  Great advances have made been in ballistic missile capability including the successful test fire of the Hwasong 15 ICBM in December 2017.
                                                           
                                           
                                     
                     
The KPA which holds tight the arms of Songun has been ever-victorious over a period of eight decades. The KPA , the vanguard force of the Songun revolution, has defeated the imperialists many times, and under the leadership of supreme commander Kim Jong Un will defeat them again.
  The glorious KPA which inherits and continues  the traditions of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army is the guerrilla army of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un ready to win the  great war for national reunification.                                                                                                    
   Today the destiny of world socialism and peace  depends on the rifles of the Korean People's Army headed by respected supreme commander Marshal Kim Jong Un. The DPRK is on the frontline of the struggle between socialism and imperialism. It stands guard over the independence of the DPRK and the people-centred socialism , the authentic socialism.  We are convinced that led by dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un the Korean People's Army will win final victory in the showdown with  the aggressive US imperialists.

Meeting Held to Mark 40th Anniversary of Socialist Labor Law


Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- A meeting took place at the Central Hall of Workers on Tuesday to mark the 40th anniversary of the promulgation of "The Socialist Labor Law of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea" authored by President Kim Il Sung.

It was attended by O Su Yong, vice-chairman of the C.C., Workers' Party of Korea, Ro Tu Chol, vice-premier of the Cabinet and chairman of the State Planning Commission, officials concerned, and officials and working people of institutions, factories and enterprises in Pyongyang.

O Su Yong made a report.

The reporter referred to the fact that Kim Il Sung authored "The Socialist Labor Law of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea" and ensured that it was adopted and promulgated at the Second Session of the Sixth Supreme People's Assembly on Apr. 18, Juche 67 (1978).

The enactment of the law provided a firm legal guarantee for dynamically speeding up socialist construction by ensuring better conditions and environment for the working people's independent and creative labor life and developing in depth the labor administration, he said, adding:

The socialist labor system in the DPRK has fully displayed its advantages and might as the most revolutionary and popular labor system and brought about a great turn in the labor life of the working people under the guidance of the Party and leader ever since the promulgation of the law.

The reporter underscored the need to bring about a fresh change in the labor administration and thus attain the targets of this year, the third year of implementing the five-year strategy for national economic development, under the guidance of the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

STATEMENT OF THE STAFFORDSHIRE BRANCH OF THE KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION "THE BBC, THE MOUTHPIECE OF WAR PROPAGANDA

STATEMENT OF THE STAFFORDSHIRE BRANCH OF THE KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION "THE BBC, THE MOUTHPIECE OF WAR PROPAGANDA

When relations between the north and the south of Korea are developing, and the prospects of peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula are becoming a realistic possibility, the BBC's premier current affairs programme "Panorama" broadcast a piece of hysterical cold war propaganda on screen, The programme from beginning to the end, was a tissue of lies and fabrications
The programme which was shown under the title of "North Korea's Slave Gangs" on April 16th. In actuality, all forms of slavery and exploitation have been abolished in the DPRK. The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea was indeed the first country to scrap all forms of taxation in 1974. DPRK citizens have been banned from working overseas due to the unjust sanctions imposed by the United Nations' Security Council. In the past DPRK citizens have worked in other countries, according to the mutual agreements. To say that the DPRK depends on hard currency gained from such ventures is totally ridiculous, as only 0.7 per of the workforce is engaged in such projects. In the DPRK all people receive free healthcare, education from the kindergarten to university level, free social housing and full employment.

The labourers featured during the programme were not authenticated as originating from the DPRK, as these persons could have come from any other Asian nation. The individuals involved were diehard Anti-DPRK elements and untrustworthy characters. A former diplomat who makes his living by slandering the DPRK, with unverified statements, whom no one treats seriously was used as one of the sources of information. Another was from mercenary academics connected with shadowy Anti-DPRK thinktanks centred within the Netherlands

The Staffordshire KFA Branch utterly denounces this crude attempt to poison the minds of the British public with xenophobia and wasting the licence fee on Anti-DPRK trash. Instead, the truth about the social system, the economy and culture of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea should be promoted in Britain. Establishing understanding between the DPRK and the UK in diverse fields is the way to foster peace and not the spreading of jingoism!

KOREA IS ONE!

More Lies from the BBC Rejected and exposed !

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
     http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk

                                       

  London 17th of April Juche 107(2018)          
   The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) ,the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP issued a commentary totally denouncing and rejecting the horrendous anti-DPRK BBC Panorama programme that was full of inaccuracies and lies .
                               

On the 16th of April 2018  , the BBC Panorama broadcast  a programme with the title  "North Korea's secret slave gangs". This is an incredible title and one that in itself  is insulting and offensive to the DPRK and its social system. The DPRK is a people-centred socialist state in which exploitation and oppression have been abolished. The BBC is the British state broadcaster that is funded through involuntary and compulsory taxation .
  We would make the following comments:


Firstly , in fact the UNSC Sanctions that were imposed last year ban DPRK citizens from working abroad . So the programme was basically harping on about an old story .In fact the programme was basically rehashing an earlier programme that was made 2 years ago.
Secondly, we are told by the likes of the British Brainwashing Corporation and others that "north Koreans cannot leave the country " and that " north Koreans are not allowed to travel abroad " , yet this programme apparently showed lots of DPRK citizens working outside of the country . The BBC cannot have it both ways: either no one is allowed to leave the country or there are lots of DPRK citizens working abroad.
Thirdly, the programme falsely alleged that DPRK workers abroad pay most of their earnings in taxes. However in fact taxation was abolished in the DPRK with effect from the 1st of April 1974 . It also referrred to money being paid in Party dues. Of course only members of the Workers' Party of Korea would be obligated to pay party dues. The BBC and the Western mainstream media allege that Party members are an elite in the DPRK , so what are they doing working as "slaves " abroad. Yet another inconsistency and contradiction of the BBC.
Fourthly, in the DPRK people receive free housing , free healthcare , free education and enjoy full employment so there is no desperate poverty and no one is forced to work abroad to send money back etc . Some DPRK citizens work abroad as part of economic co-operation agreements with foreign countries . They are covered by DPRK labour legalisation such as the Socialist Labour Law that ws enacted in  1978 and provides DPRK workers with independent and creative lives free from exploitation and oppression. The numbers working abroad  are actually a very small percentage of the DPRK population and workforce . The figure given by the programme for those working abroad in the DPRK is probably inflated and exaggerated but even it is accurate it is 0.4 per cent of the population and about aproximately 0.7 per cent of the workforce.
Fifth , All of the Koreans who made critical comments in the programme were not shown on camera, so it is impossible to authenticate their stories.
Finally, the programme wheeled out the likes of the whisky sodden traitor who used to be at the DPRK Embassy in London and Professor Remco Breuker of the University of Leiden in Holland . As to little piece of shit who used to be a DPRK diplomat in London he was accused of very serious crimes by the DPRK such as stealing a capital sum of money , selling state secrets and espionage and the rape of a minor . This vile and despicable individual also spied on the UK Korean Friendship Association , Juche Idea Study and Assocation for the Study of Songun Politics UK  and was passing details to the British and American intelligence services as well as south Korea . It is believed that he was an agent of Western intelligence services for many years . With regard to  Professor Breuker works at the University of Leiden a notorious anti-DPRK centre associated with the CIA and south Korean NIS and Western intelligence servicse. Prof Breuker is a typical anti-communist bourgeois overpaid  academic.Others included in the programme where an official of the former south Korean puppet regime  and a researcher from the Royal United Service Institute , a body that is linked to the British imperialist armed forces and intelligence services MI5 and MI6 .
This programme has been deliberately produced by the BBC try and deliberately tarnish the DPRK 's reputation at a time when it is rising !

  The British peiple must reject the lies of the BBC !

.  It is an honour to be here in anti-imperialist Belarus to mark the highly significant anniversaries of Juche Korea namely the Day of the Sun, the 6th anniversary of the election of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the 86th anniversary of the foundation of the Korean People's Army by the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG. Also this conference will be a profound manifestation of anti-imperialist solidarity with Juche Korea which is facing the most unprecedented and harsh sanctions imposed by the US imperialists and their lackeys in the UN Security Council. The amount of sanctions imposed against Juche Korea is countless. The DPRK is also facing military threats, psychological warfare and regime change propaganda by US and world imperialism.
   The anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG is celebrated not only in Korea but in many lands across the globe which reflects the fact that he was not only as the great leader of the Korean people but the great leader of the world revolutionary people. Last year myself and comrades from Britain were able to participate in the wonderful celebrations of the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG which were held in April and then in August a delegation from UK KFA travelled to the land of Juche , the land of Mt Paektu to participate in the 5th International Festival in praise of the Great Persons of Mt Paektu . We were honoured to see Mt Paektu, the sacred mountain of the Korean revolution.
  Building on the great success of the 5th International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt Paektu , it has been decided to hold this meeting to create the International Festival Organising Committee  which we believe will make a great contribution to promoting solidarity with Juche Korea and exalting the achievements of the Great Persons of Mt Paektu. Our UK KFA  supports this initiative. Celebrating the lives of the Great Persons of Mt Paektu is a vital task for the world progressives and the formation of this Organising Committee will make a meaningful contribution.

Imperishable achievements for great national unity


Twenty-five years ago in April 1993, President Kim Il Sung made public his work "10-Point Program of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country".
The program, clarified principle and ideological basis of great national unity, is an encyclopedic one that shed light on all matters in promoting national unity and is the most reasonable and realistic charter for great national unity which reflects aspiration and demand of the Korean nation and specific condition of the movement for reunification.
With the publication of the program, the Korean nation could get aboveboard and patriotic program and national reunification had a bright prospects.
The publication of the program was an event of historic significance which enabled the Korean nation in the north, south and abroad to promote national reconciliation and unity, irrespective of differences, and made it possible to achieve independent and peaceful reunification of the country on the strength of overall national unity
With his boundlessly broad magnanimity, he warmly treated and put forward those who hoped for national reunification on the road of reunification and patriotism without questioning their political view, ism and inglorious past.
Under his warm benevolence, many well-known and unsung people kept to the path of national reunification and made a tangible contribution to national concord. They are remembered by the nation as martyrs of reunification.
President Kim Il Sung’s warm affection served as the motive power for strengthening the main group of reunification and developing the movement for reunification on a nationwide basis.
The tradition of great national unity crowned the history of national reunification with victory and glory is a precious fruition of the President’s idea of great national unity and patriotism.
Successfully inheriting the President’s ideology of overall national unity, LeaderKim Jong Il developed the movement for reunification on a higher stage and provided a sure guarantee for accomplishing the cause of great national unity pioneered by the President by opening up the June 15 reunification era.
The cause of great national unity pioneered by President Kim Il Sung and led by Leader Kim Jong Il is being carried out by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
Thanks to energetic guidance of the Supreme Leader, inter-Korean relationship riddled with animosity and face-off has turned into national rapprochement and concord.
Supporting patriotic idea and intention of the Supreme Leader is a shortcut to overall national unity and realization of national reunification.

Solid foundation for national reunification

Solid foundation for national reunification
President Kim Il Sung is a peerless great person who provided a solid foundation for national reunification and unity with his ardent love for and devotion to the nation.
He had worked heart and soul to reunify the country until the last moment of his life since national division caused by the foreign forces.
He made a precious tradition of national concord by convening the Joint Conference of Representatives of Political Parties and Public Organizations in North and South Korea in April 1948 and wisely led the realization of solidarity between the south, north and abroad to expand the movement for reunification on a nationwide basis.
He set forth the three principles of reunification, 10-point program of the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding a Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo to strengthen the driving force of national reunification. He provided a solid foundation for reunifying the country in a fair manner and smoothly.
With a resolute will to put an end to tragedy of the national division, he left his last autographic sign on a document related to the national reunification.
His revolutionary career was the great life of peerless patriot who dedicated his all to the country’s reunification.
Recollecting the undying exploits performed by the President, the Korean people are singing songs in praise of him with their hearts.
South Korean people from all walks of life said that President Kim Il Sung had worked heart and soul to reunify the country, saying he could not get to sleep at the thought of the south Korean people. He had devoted himself to the country’s reunification until his last breath. They highly eulogize him as the greatest man in the world, a unequaled patriot dedicated his all to the country’s reunification and the greatest saint among legendary heroes.
The south Korean people’s reverence for the President is developing into their unswerving faith to turn out in vigorous action to reunify the country true to patriotic intention of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
The Korean people harden their resolve to realize the President’s instructions for reunification under the leadership of the Supreme Leader.
