Acknowledgement of Church Leader
“Why didn’t you, the Reverend, deliver Bibles in Korea?”
The question was put by a reporter to the Reverend Billy Graham, American church leader who was called the boss of conservatives of the world religious circles after the latter visited Pyongyang.
Billy Graham answered:
“I feel no necessity to preach in Korea. Books of Bible are all containing the will of God to love human beings. But human love is a national policy in that country. Believing in the people as in Heaven, President Kim Il Sung practices state polices such as free education, free medical care, and responsibility for food, clothing and housing. The Korean people support him as Heaven. Who needs a book of Bible in such a country?”
The reply was not accidental for a pastor who preaches religious doctrine as his mission.
The DPRK, as he saw, was a world of people which embodies the Juche Idea that puts forward as the motive force of history and heavenly beings the people who had been only the object of exploitation and oppression.
This country is called the People’s Republic, its power the people’s power and its army the People’s Army.
Monumental edifices such as Grand People’s Study House, People’s Palace of Culture, People’s Theatre, People’s Hospital and the most honorable titles such as People’s Teacher and People’s Artist are all named after people.
“The people are my God” or believing in people as in Heaven is a favorite theory and motto of President Kim Il Sung. It is also a basic ideal of the Party and state building in the DPRK.
Kim Il Sung in his lifetime said if he had any hobby, it was going among the people and listening to them, and the people are the most admirable teachers.
With this point of view Kim Il Sung in an advanced age of 80 toured factories and rural villages without let-up, devoting his all for the welfare of people.
From the days of building a new Korea after liberation till the last period of his life he toured as long as over 578 000km, equal to 14.5 rounds of the earth.
The period includes Sundays, holidays and his birthdays, over 2 530 days in all.
The figures tell of the life of the President who dedicated all his painstaking efforts for the people with the conception of “The people are my God” as his lifelong motto and became the father of a large family of the nation.
The Korean people reverentially called him “father leader” rather than the President.
It was an irrepressible eruption of their hearty feelings.
They believed in President Kim Il Sung as in Heaven and spoke highly of him as human sun amid the admiration of the world people.
President Kim Il Sung who devoted his whole life for the welfare of the Korean people will be alive in their hearts as their eternal leader.
Great Citizen

President Kim Il Sung founded the DPRK on September 9, Juche 37(1948).
Since then the Korean people have been freely participating in all fields of state administration and the exercise of sovereignty with a pride of being citizens of the Republic.
Kim Il Sung who bestowed the genuine honor of citizen of the Republic on the Korean people had a higher degree of consciousness of citizenship than anybody else.
The following happened on the morning of the day of elections of deputies to the 3rd Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK.
Leaving home to go to a polling station, Kim Il Sung suddenly stopped to ascertain whether he was carrying his citizenship card with him.
The official accompanying him said it would not matter if he did not carry his citizenship card with him.
He had thought that there would be no problem even if the President did not carry his citizenship card with him because he was the head of state held in high esteem by all people of the country.
Reading his mind, Kim Il Sung said;
“Citizenship card is a voucher of citizen of the Republic. So everybody should carry his citizenship card with him when going to a polling station to elect deputies. I am also a citizen of the Republic as all of you are.”
At this official could not repress excitement.
He found the noble traits of the President who was regarding not only pride, but duties and self-consciousness as the mission of citizen.
President Kim Il Sung was indeed a great citizen who kept the title of citizen of the Republic in his heart.
Posterity-First Outlook

Marshal, Kim Jong Un, First Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea stressed the need to thoroughly embody the serviceableness-first, the aesthetics-first and the posterity-first outlook in architecture.
Posterity-first outlook is a synonym for love of the WPK for posterity and a new expression of the times representing the fighting objective and ideal of the DPRK advancing towards socialist civilization.
Recently built structures in the DPRK reflect the love for the future of the nation.
The Okryu Children’s Hospital is reminiscent of a fairy tale’s world rather than hospital.
The Munsu Water Park is provided with a swimming pool for children and children’s parks are all installed with swings for toddlers.
Amusement apparatuses for children can be found in the indoor relaxation ground of Kim Il Sung University lecturers’ apartments that are sky scraping.
Children foster their courage on pony’s back in the indoor riding-drill ground of the Mirim Riding Club and in the Masikryong Ski Resort campers glide along the elementary and intermediate tracks.
Every structure should reflect the dream and ideal of the younger generation, the future of the nation.
Every inside decoration should help children grow the fervent feelings of love for the country in their minds and harbor an ambition to lead the world.
Those are the standard of creation of Marshal Kim Jong Un who ushers in a new heyday of architecture with a noble outlook on posterity and his new world of aesthetics.
Under his leadership the DPRK will great a brighter and rosier future.

Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to October 8 Factory
Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the October 8 Factory built as an icon and standard of the DPRK's industrial establishments.
Enjoying a bird's eye view of the factory, he expressed great satisfaction, saying he could hardly find any trace he saw last year, it did not look like a factory but a rest home as it turned into a thick woodland and greenery and park and the culture of workers was in full bloom in all its worksites.
He went round a monument to the revolutionary activities of the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu, hall of culture, e-library, cutting shop, finishing shop, products show room, gymnasium, Unjong health complex, canteen, rest home, workers' hostel and various other places of the factory to learn in detail about the construction and production there.
He said that it was his intention to turn the October 8 Factory into a factory representing the nation's industrial establishments, a factory meeting the requirements of the age of knowledge-based economy and befitting the appearance of highly civilized socialist country and the one to be proud of in the world. Its builders successfully carried out the plan of the Central Committee of the WPK, he added.
He said that the factory has perfect computer-aided integrated production system, is equipped with latest facilities and fitted with cooling and heating system depending on geothermal power, thereby emerging an industrial establishment put on an IT and digital basis and becoming an energy-saving one.
He set forth the tasks to be implemented by the factory.
He noted with pride that the construction of the factory proved once again that with the might of great unity of army and people they can do anything in the world.
He sent thanks to soldier-builders of Large Combined Unit 593, Unit 101, Unit 489 and Unit 462 of the KPA and people who performed labor feats in the construction of the factory and personally proposed awarding high state citations to those of merit.
He had a photo session with officials and employees of the factory.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Han Kwang Sang, Hong Yong Chil and Kim Jong Gwan.

Kim Jong Un Has Photo Session with Service Personnel
Who Took Part in KPA Drills
Pyongyang, August 30 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, had a photo session with service personnel who participated in the actual parachuting and striking drills of paratrooper units of the KPA.
The drills were staged from August 27 to 29.
He showed such loving care as having a photo taken with paratroopers of sub-units under 323 Unit, 162 Unit and 252 Unit and airpersons of 858 Unit of Air and Anti-Air Force of the KPA who performed military feats in the above-said drills.
He came out to the photographing site and waved back to enthusiastic cheers of the participants.
He encouraged the service personnel who successfully carried out their difficult tasks in combat training which called for overcoming the biggest physical burdens under the worst conditions by making the training part of their life and habit as intended by the party.
He had a photo session with them, expressing his expectation and conviction that they would firmly prepare themselves as a-match-for-a-hundred fighters possessed of perfect fighting capabilities by undergoing intensive trainings under the simulated conditions of an actual war in the future, too.
Present there were Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Pyon In Son, O Kum Chol, Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Myong Sik, Pang Kwan Bok, Jang Tong Un and Pak Thae Su.
President Kim Il Sung and Zhang Weihua
A passage from With the Century, reminiscences by President Kim Il Sung (1912-1994), peerlessly great man in the 20th century, reads as follows:
“I have expressed for a long time my wish to visit Fusong. This wish remains. I want to visit Zhang Weihua’s grave in Nandianzi, Fusong, but I am afraid that it may remain a mere desire. If I fail to accomplish this desire, I hope that I manage to visit him in my dreams.”
 “Song Ju, Weihua”
Zhang Weihua was the son of a rich Chinese man who owned dozens of hectares of land and many insam fields and private soldiers.
The ties between Kim Il Sung and Zhang Weihua were formed in their boyhood when the President was staying in China with his father who was conducting activities for the liberation of Korea from the Japanese military occupation.
Since primary school days in Fusong in Northeast China they had kept friendly relations, playing tennis and going swimming together. They promoted friendship while frequently visiting each other’s houses to study and enjoy foods together.
It was, indeed, an anomalous link that Kim Song Ju (President’s real name), an unlucky boy from a ruined country, and Zhang Weihua, the son of a millionaire, studied in the same class and established unprecedented friendship.
Zhang, however, was much fascinated with the President’s personality from his childhood. He was enrolled in the Down-with-Imperialism Union, the first vanguard organization of Korean revolutionaries of the new generation, and the Young Communist League, which were both organized by the President, felt sympathy with his idea and cause and absolutely worshipped and followed him. When the President organized the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army and led the anti-Japanese armed struggle, he sent many weapons and aid materials to the KPRA.
When they met in the spring of 1936 in Miaoling, Fusong County, China, the following conversation passed between them.
“From now on I will call you General or Commander as others do.”
“Please call me Song Ju, even though others address me commander. I, too, will call you Weihua, rather than Mr. Zhang. Song Ju, Weihua… .”
After making a promise to meet again, Zhang returned to Fusong and gave more active support to the KPRA. In October 1936 he was arrested by the enemy who had been informed by a turncoat. Though he was paroled by his father’s agency, he saw through the Japanese police’s attempt to learn clues of the whereabouts of the KPRA Headquarters and committed suicide by swallowing a doze of corrosive sublimate used in film development. At that time he was 25 years old.
He said to his wife as he faced death.
“I regret and lament that I cannot continue the anti-Japanese struggle together with General Kim Il Sung. I decided to guarantee the safety of my comrades with my death and prove worthy of the trust and friendship of General Kim Il Sung. Don’t grieve too much.”
Eternal Friendship
Here’s a part of President Kim Il Sung’s reminiscences.
“It would not be correct to think that my friendship with Zhang Weihua ended with his death. If a man’s friendship ends with his friend’s death, can such a bond be considered a sign of real friendship? If a living man remembers his dead friend, the friendship remains alive and vibrant.”
When the anti-Japanese war ended in victory, Zhang Weihua was the first man the President recalled from countless fallen comrades and benefactors.
In 1959 a visitors’ group from Korea was sent to old anti-Japanese battlefields in Manchuria. Before the departure the President assigned the officials of the group the task of learning the news of Zhang’s bereaved family. He was very pleased to be informed of how Zhang’s family had lived. In May 1984, when he was passing through Northeast China by train on his way to visit former Soviet Union and other socialist countries in East Europe he recalled Zhang and sent a gift to his son Zhang Jinquan as a token of his best wishes.
In April 1985 Zhang’s son and daughter visited Pyongyang. The President greeted them by saying that he welcomed them and showed parental affection for them. In January 1993 he visited the lodging house of Zhang’s eldest grandson and granddaughter studying in a university of Pyongyang to learn about how they were studying and living. In May 1994, a few months before he passed away, he met again Zhang’s eldest granddaughter and other descendants to do them a favour.
Always keeping in mind Fusong where Zhang’s grave was located, he sent a monument to his grave on the occasion of the 55th anniversary of his death in October 1992. Its unveiling ceremony was held in grandeur in Fusong. The epitaph for the monument in his handwriting reads:
“The revolutionary exploits of the martyr Zhang Weihua constitute a bright symbol of the friendship between the Korean and Chinese peoples. His noble revolutionary spirit and services to the revolution will live on for ever in the people’s minds.
Kim Il Sung

On September 8, 1945, the troops of the United States landed on south Korea, and since then they are stationed there.
There are some sinister reasons why the US has its troops stationed in south Korea for such a long period.
Result of Ambition for Domination
The United States had long been keeping its eye on the Korean peninsula, the gateway to the Asian continent. To this end, it had worked out a plan to make Korea its colony, a point of military importance, already in the 30s of 19th century, and dispatched its “expedition team” for armed invasion of Korea between the 1860s and 1870s. A typical example is that its aggression ship, General Sherman, intruded into Korea in 1866, but was sunk into the Taedong River in Pyongyang.
Watching eagerly for the chance of invading Korea, the US tried to realize its ambition, taking advantage of the defeat of Japan, together with Germany and Italy, in the Second World War. It planned to compel Japan to surrender to it, not to the Allies, by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, thereby monopolizing the victory in war against Japan and occupying Korea which was under the rule of Japan.
However, the situation developed unfavourably for the US to carry out its plan. Before it set foot on Korea, it looked inevitable that the whole Korea would be liberated thanks to the joint military operations of the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army and the former Soviet Red Army.
At that juncture, Japan notified the Allies on August 14, 1945, of its acceptance of the Potsdam Declaration and surrender.
Informed of it, US President Truman gave instructions to the Department of Defense that a “General Order” should be drafted on distributing the regions between the US and former Soviet Union to accept the surrender of Japanese army. The order provided for US troops to land on south Korea for the purpose of disarming Japanese soldiers. In this way, the 38th Parallel became the line that divided Korea into north and south. 
On September 8, almost a month after the defeat of Japan, the US landed its troops in south Korea.
Unlawful and Immoral Occupation
The American occupation of south Korea was unlawful through and through.
The conferences of the Allies during WWII acknowledged that the Korean nation was in the condition of Japanese slavery and declared that Korea should be free and independent. The Potsdam Declaration which was adopted in the last conference of the Allies discussing the postwar settlement reconfirmed it.
Those previous conferences and consequential agreements never mentioned about any “demarcation line” for both Soviet and American troops to disarm the Japanese troops.
This notwithstanding, the United States fabricated arbitrarily the 38th Parallel and occupied south Korea.
The US occupation of south Korea is illegal in the light of the international laws on war.
According to the 1907 Hague Treaty and Rules regarding the laws and customs of land warfare the most important condition for lawful military occupation is that the occupied territory should be the one of the hostile country. It thus defines it as an illegal military occupation to occupy the region of the country which is not hostile.
In 1945, towards the end of WWII, Korea was not the country hostile to the Allies, but the one to be freed from Japan, a belligerent state.
Japan, too, recognized that Korea should be freed from its yoke through several documents, including the statement of the Japanese government agreeing to accept the surrender terms of the Potsdam Declaration. After its unconditional surrender it transferred of its own accord all authority to people’s committees formed by the Korean people and was awaiting punishment.
People’s committees at all levels were set up throughout south Korea, disarming the Japanese army and police, and securing social stability through autonomy. Under these circumstances, it was completely unlawful that the US militarily occupied south Korea on the pretext of disarming the Japanese troops.
Sly Tricks Aimed at Permanent Occupation
The joint conference of representatives of the north and south Korean political parties and social organizations was held in Pyongyang in April 1948 and, representing the will of the entire Korean nation, demanded the withdrawal of foreign troops, both Russian and American, from Korea at the same time.
The government of former Soviet Union informed the DPRK government in September 1948 of the withdrawal of its troops by the end of December that year. On December 26 the headquarters of the Soviet army left Korea, completing the withdrawal of the Soviet troops from north Korea.
Though the US made public its “complete withdrawal of troops” in June 1949, many of them remained in south Korea under the disguise of the “American Military Advisory Group.” It even instigated the puppet Syngman Rhee government to hold a national meeting in demand of postponing the withdrawal of the American troops, scheming to legalize its permanent occupation of south Korea.
After the Korean war (1950-1953) the US opposed the proposal for simultaneous withdrawal of Chinese People’s Volunteers and US troops. Therefore, after the CPV’s return by 1958, the US troops in south Korea increased continuously.
The US did not carry out the resolution adopted at the 30th session of the United Nations General Assembly on dissolving the “United Nations Command” and pulling out all the foreign troops in the cap of UN force in south Korea.
During the Cold War, it strove for permanent stationing of GIs in south Korea, making an excuse of “threat” from former Soviet Union. This excuse lost its justification after the end of the Cold War and collapse of former Soviet Union.
This being the case, the US began to trumpet about the “threats from north Korea,” causing rumours about the latter’s missile and nuclear threats.
That is why the US is constantly conducting dangerous test war, preliminary nuclear war, against the DPRK and further aggravating the situation on the Korean peninsula.
It is a serious lesson learned from recent world events that one should have one’s own self-defensive power in order to defend sovereignty of a country and safeguard peace. Not a few countries of the world suffered the tragedy of infringement of their sovereignty and dignity, bloodshed and collapse, because they had no strength with which to fight against the intervention and aggression by the imperialists.
But there is one country with which such a power policy of the imperialists cuts no ice. It is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a small country in the East.
When the DPRK launched an artificial satellite for peaceful purposes in December 2012, the United States and its following forces picked a quarrel with it without any reason and adopted the United Nations Security Council’s “resolution on sanctions.” Their real intention was quiet obvious; they were aimed at isolating and stifling this anti-imperialist, independent country.
The DPRK met the assaults of the hostile forces when they, in pursuit of an ulterior purpose, were calling into question the former’s fair right to satellite launch, with the third underground nuclear test. It was a just measure to safeguard not only its national sovereignty but also international justice.
However, the US and its followers imposed on it tougher sanctions, finding fault with its nuclear test. Moreover, they launched joint military exercises codenamed Key Resolve and Foal Eagle in the largest scale unprecedented so far in an attempt to militarily suppress the DPRK. They enlisted in these exercises not only huge armed forces involving troops from several vassal states but also nuclear-powered aircraft carriers loaded with over a hundred nuclear bombs, B-52H strategic bombers and other ground, naval and air nuclear striking means en masse.
A hair-triggering situation in which a war can break out was created in the Korean peninsula, one of the world’s hot spots for several decades.
To cope with it, supreme leader Kim Jong Un of the DPRK ordered all the service personnel of the Korean People’s Army and people of the country to prepare for a decisive battle. And, inspecting army units, he said resolutely that the enemy, if they dared to drop even a spark of fire on either the territory or the territorial waters of the Republic, should be given a thrashing blow and their camp be wiped out so that they would never move an inch again. When the B-2A stealth strategic bombers and other strategic striking means of the US flew from the airbase in US mainland and committed acts of provocation in the skies of south Korea, he ordered that the strategic rockets of the KPA be on standby to assault the US military bases in the Pacific operational zone including the US mainland, Hawaii and Guam Island and in south Korea.
A special statement of the DPRK government, political parties and public organizations clarified the unshakable stand that the nuclear blackmail of the US will be answered with a merciless nuclear strike and its war of aggression with an all-out war of justice.
The US-led forces were overpowered by the Korean army and people who turned out in a do-or-die struggle in defence of its sovereignty.
What is more unbelievable is that the US, which had in the past boisterously advertised the nuclear strike against other countries, had to accept a striking reality that it had to talk about a strategy of defending its mainland from the nuclear attack by others. It means that the era is gone forever when the US threatened the DPRK with nukes.
Now all the Korean army and people are full of determination to safeguard their own dignity and sovereignty without fail and mercilessly punish the US and its following forces that are indulged deep in high-handedness and arbitrariness and behaving recklessly.
The DPRK is fully capable of carrying out its will. It is now countering the US wielding nuclear weapons with precise nuclear attacking means of its style.
The US newspaper Worker’s World commented in one of its article that the crisis facing the US administration was that the DPRK prepared its retaliatory capability to neutralize the US nuclear blackmails. And it warned that any kinds of threats could bring no changes to the DPRK but cause side effects.
Another American newspaper Chicago Tribune commented that at the moment north Korea was too powerful to be ignored.
Powerful war deterrence of the DPRK—this is a great contribution to and achievement it has made for peace and security on the Korean peninsula and the Northeast Asia, and, further, for global peace.
The reality of the DPRK which stands bravely against imperialist allied forces and defends with credit its national sovereignty and dignity instils great confidence and strength in many countries aspiring to independence and promotes the cause of making the world independent.
Kim Jong Un Guides Actual Parachuting and Striking Drill of Paratrooper Units of KPA
Pyongyang, August 28 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided the actual parachuting and striking drill of paratrooper units of the KPA.
After receiving a report on the plan for the drill on the observation post, he guided it.
The paratroopers who have undergone intensive training and their hearts burning with the resolution to mercilessly wipe out enemies accurately landed on the designated area.
He expressed great satisfaction, saying they are very good at parachuting and they have strong guts.
The paratroopers have intensified their training the way the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu, bearing in mind that they cannot expect a victory in their future combat without sweat in the day-to-day trainings. They rapidly went over to their next combat action and thus carried out the order of the Supreme Commander.
Kim Jong Un highly praised them for having successfully conducted the drill by applying the Juche war method and gave instructions to be fulfilled by the KPA to round off the combat preparations.
He said that an army good at fighting would be unimaginable without drills and that if service personnel neglect training even a moment because there is no gunfire of war, they may bring irrevocable consequences in an actual battle. The KPA should make it part of their life and habit to do exercise, he added.
He stressed the need to prepare all service personnel as a-match-for-a-hundred fighters who are always ready for all services by thoroughly carrying out the training-first idea of the party, thinking of battles awake or asleep, while bearing in mind that an exercise means army and training is the first task among a hundred military tasks.
He put forward a new training method and way which would serve as guidelines for preparing service personnel to be capable of satisfactorily performing their combat duties.
He expressed expectation and belief that the service personnel would firmly guarantee the accomplishment of the Juche revolutionary cause and the building of a thriving socialist nation with arms by making sustained great efforts for stepping up the battle preparations and bolstering up the combat capability.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Pyon In Son, O Kum Chol, Ri Pyong Chol, Pang Kwan Bok and Jang Tong Un.

The Korean people hold Kim Il Sung (1912-1994), founder of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, in high esteem as the eternal President of the DPRK.
Cherishing a high aim of building a people’s country, he opened up a path for setting up a people’s government, which defends and realizes the interests of workers, peasants, service personnel, intellectuals and other broad sections of the masses of the people from the independent standpoint irrespective of the established theories and experiences of other countries.
He led the efforts to set up a people’s revolutionary government, which defends the people’s rights and freedom, in the guerrilla bases during the anti-Japanese armed struggle to liberate Korea from Japan’s military occupation (1905-1945).
Based on that historical root, he put forward a line of building a new country in consonance with the realities of Korea just after its liberation (August 1945), and organized in February 1946 the Provisional People’s Committee of North Korea (PPCNK) as a people’s democratic government to carry out the immediate tasks of the anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic revolution. The PPCNK was a democratic government of new type founded on the basis of the worker-peasant alliance led by the working class and the united front of the broad masses of the people, which made the Korean people wage a vigorous struggle to carry out various democratic reforms, exercising their full-fledged rights as the masters of society.
In those days peasants made up the overwhelming majority of the population in Korea. In order to achieve their age-long desire, Kim Il Sung proclaimed the historical Law on Agrarian Reform on March 5, 1946, and then the Labour Law, the Law on Sex Equality, the law on nationalization of major industries and so on, thus enforcing the democratic policies in all fields of education, culture, judicial and prosecutorial work. Under his leadership, various democratic reforms were successfully carried out in a short period in North Korea to eliminate the colonial and feudal legacies in all fields of social life, rehabilitate the national industry and establish a democratic educational and cultural system, providing the social and economic foundations for a new, democratic Korea.
With the successful fulfilment of the tasks of the anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic revolution, the PPCNK was developed into the People’s Committee of North Korea (PCNK) in February 1947. The PCNK carried out the tasks in the period of gradual transition to socialism and laid a firm foundation of an all-Korea central government to be established, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The course of founding the DPRK, however, was not smooth.
The internal and external situations of Korea were very complicated and acute after liberation. The United States occupied south Korea on the pretext of “disarmament” of the defeated Japanese army after the end of the Second World War, affording a possibility of a divided Korea. The US dissolved forcibly the people’s committees established on the initiative of the people in south Korea and administered military rule as a new method of colonial rule.
In the critical situation Kim Il Sung devoted all his energies to frustrating the manoeuvres of the US to split the Korean nation and rallying all the patriotic forces in the north and the south of Korea closely under the banner of national independence. As a result, the Joint Conference of Representatives of Political Parties and Public Organizations in North and South Korea was held in Pyongyang in April 1948. The unity of the patriotic, democratic forces in the north and the south became the social and political foundation for establishing a unified central government of Korea.
The fabrication of “separate election” by the US in south Korea in May 1948 aggravated a danger of division of the Korean nation. To cope with it, Kim Il Sung in June that year called a consultative conference of leaders of political parties and public organizations in the north and south of Korea and set forth the policy of establishing an all-Korea government through a north-south general election without delay. The north-south general election was held in August, followed by the historical First Session of the Supreme People’s Assembly in September. On September 9, 1948, the DPRK, the first people’s democratic country in the East, was founded.
Since the founding of the DPRK Kim Il Sung led the country and people for nearly half a century. Under his leadership the DPRK, less than two years after founding, fought against aggression of the US, who boasted of being “the strongest” in the world, in the Korean war (1950-1953) and defended the country’s sovereignty and dignity with honour. The postwar reconstruction and socialist revolution were completed in a short period on the debris after the war, and the socialist construction of several stages was successfully conducted.

Marking the 66th anniversary of the founding of the DPRK, which has displayed the dignity of an invincible socialist country, we pay high tribute to its founder, President Kim Il Sung.

The United States styles itself as an “apostle of peace,” “human rights judge” and “international police.”
But the US as the world community sees is quite different.
 “Most Dangerous Country”
A reporter from New York Times exposed in one of his books that the United States maneuvered during the previous 100 years a lot of plots against governments in many countries of the world, including Hawaii, Nicaragua, Panama, Grenada, Afghanistan and Iraq.
It is well known that the United States, since its founding, has committed wars of aggression and armed interventions without letup, wrecking peace of the world and bringing untold misfortunes on humankind.
In the last few years alone it waged wars of aggression against such countries in the Middle East and North Africa as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya, and interfered in their domestic affairs, fomenting serious social disorder and ruining economy in these countries.
On the Korean peninsula in the East it is conducting recklessly nuclear war manoeuvres against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, entailing a risk of thermonuclear war unprecedented in human history.
For this reason the international community dislikes the US, which always makes mankind restless and even pays no heed to the existence of the planet.
According to the data of public-opinion survey released in March 2013 by the American Gallup office, the universal disapproval rate of the United States went up by 4% over 2009. The proportions of Pakistanis and Palestinians who expressed negative views about the US rose to 79% and 77% respectively.
The US is also losing favour with its allies.
It has revealed the “pivot-to-Asia-Pacific” strategy and insisted on European countries siding with it and sharing expenses in defence. However, the European countries took frigid, hesitant, indifferent and discontented attitudes toward the US proposal.
The recent Snowden incident is now having a snowball effect on the allied countries’ distrust of the US, which conducted acts of wiretapping across the world, and, worse still, of the statesmen of its allies, including the German Chancellor.
Even the US citizens are opposed to the policy of imperialism and dominationism pursued by their own country. In December 2013 the Pew Research Center published the survey result that 80% of the Americans showed negative views about the excessive interference of the US into international affairs.
According to the Gallup survey of 70 000 people in 65 countries, many of them replied that the United States is the “most dangerous country.”
 “Most Detestable Country”
Recently an American film that defiles Muhammad, the Prophet of the Islamic religion, as a “fraud” and Islam as the “religion of malice” was screened in the United States, and it offended the Islamic people. A church in Florida, the US, held a mock court against the Quran as its defendant, declared it guilty and burnt it.
The Human Rights Watch exposed that the GIs in Iraq held tens of thousands of people in detention and deprived them of the elementary rights. They forced the Iraqi detainees to undress and build human pyramids and set the dog on them. American female investigators stripped the Iraqi male prisoners naked and sexually assaulted them, while male investigators sexually abusing and raping women prisoners, and, worse, committing outrages on them to have sexual intercourse with animals.     
Not only the Islamic people but many people across the world are shaking their heads in denial of the US. Anti-American sentiments are growing stronger in many parts of the world, and the United States is becoming the major target of attack. Many American soldiers and citizens in Iraq and Afghanistan are being attacked by resistant forces. In Libya the US ambassador and several other Americans were killed.
An article carried in Newsweek pointed out that the US has so far brought to other countries and regions of the world only destruction, disorder, misfortunes and disasters, instead of peace and stability, and that is why the whole world dislikes the US.
Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the November 2 Factory of the KPA.
He went round the newly built room dedicated to the history of the factory.
He said that the room was arranged well, adding the factory has a long history.
Going round the zeppole, bread and confectionery workshops and other places of the factory, he learned in detail about the technical updating of production processes and production there.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the officials and employees of the factory put all production processes on an automatic and unmanned basis ranging from preparation of foodstuff to production and packing of products to carry out the tasks assigned by the party.
The greatest achievement made by the factory is that it completed by its own efforts and with indigenous technology the updating of technical processes even those countries which claim developed in food industry dare not to do.
He highly appreciated the feats the technicians of the factory and teachers and researchers of Pyongyang University of Mechanical Engineering have performed by most accurately implementing the line of the party on updating the production processes in such a manner as to fully ensure the hygienic safety of foodstuff, cut down manpower and drastically reduce production cost.
"The scientific and technological achievements made by the factory prove that it is possible to bring about world-startling miracle and innovations when high technical goals are set as required by the era of the knowledge-based economy and its employees are powerfully encouraged to hit them", he said, instructing other foodstuff factories to earnestly learn from the experience gained by it.
He emphasized the need for the factory to work hard to attain a higher goal of putting the production environment on a sterilized and dust-free basis, not resting content with the successes already achieved.
He repeatedly expressed his satisfaction, saying that he was pleased to look round the factory and that it was the one to be proud of, it was impeccable in all aspects, and it was the factory he liked to visit.
He earnestly instructed the officials of the factory to increase the production of varieties of tasty and nutritious foodstuff for soldiers in the future too.
He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, KPA Col. General So Hong Chan, first vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces, and Han Kwang Sang, department director of the C.C., the WPK.
Scientists’ streets have recently mushroomed in Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
Unha Scientists Street
Built in a spacious area in a suburb of Pyongyang, Unha Scientists Street consists of 21 multi-storeyed apartment buildings of over 1 000 flats, schools, hospital, nurseries, kindergartens and other public establishments, 16 children’s and other small parks and various public welfare service facilities.
A green environment presented by good species of trees, beautiful flowers and green turf surrounding wide roads and apartment buildings makes every one feel the freshness of natural ecology.
Flats, boasting of modern architectural beauty, are provided with all conditions for scientific study. Living rooms are furnished with up-to-date furniture and other household articles. Kitchens, toilets and other parts of the interior are so designed as to provide scientific study.
These luxurious flats have been provided to ordinary scientists and technicians gratis.
Supreme leader Kim Jong Un of the DPRK proposed building the street and guided the construction project. Saying that there is nothing to spare for scientists and technicians who are devoting themselves to building up the national power, promoting economic construction and improving the people’s standard of living, he went over its project plan and designing and went to the construction site several times to take every possible measure for the construction.
The construct project was implemented just seven months after its groundbreaking.
He visited the residential district for scientists in September 2013 built on the occasion of the 65th founding anniversary of the DPRK and named it Unha Scientists Street.
Kim Jong Un on a visit to the State Academy of Sciences in January 2014 said that a lavish investment should be made to achieve successes in scientific research, and unfolded his plan to have a modern street built for scientists in the Unjong scientific district as Unha Scientists Street was built the previous year. In the sense that the scientists and technicians of the country that had manufactured and launched satellites would live there, the street should be named Wisong (satellite) Scientists Street, he added.
Accordingly, a gigantic project involving construction of tens of apartment buildings of over a thousand flats, school, hospital, health complex and scientific research bases is now under way.
Under the close concern of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the government, their framework construction and plastering of their exterior and interior have been finished only a few months since the groundbreaking and the project is now close to completion.
Mirae Scientists Street
In August 2013 Kim Jong Un planned a construction project for lecturers and researchers at Kim Chaek University of Technology while looking round the construction site of apartment buildings for educationists at Kim Il Sung University in downtown Pyongyang. To this end, he gave detailed guidance to the designing of the apartment buildings and took all necessary steps.
He visited the construction site in mid-May 2014. Looking at the 46-storeyed, twin apartment buildings on the bank of the picturesque Taedong River, he said that as outer walls of the buildings are curve-shaped, they look like sailing boats on the Taedong and that they are fancy structures of a peculiar style. He stressed that nothing should be spared for educationists who are devoting their life to the training of competent personnel for the country and that it is the intention of the Workers’ Party of Korea to build more such apartment houses for lecturers and researchers in future.
He went on: 500 more flats for the university educationists and public service facilities should be built on the bank of the Taedong River with those under construction as axis. Then, a full street will be formed. It would be advisable to name the new street Mirae (future) Scientists Street.
Under his guidance, the street is making its magnificent appearance as a community of structures of modern architectural beauty.
Scientists streets built or under construction in Pyongyang give a glimpse into the steadfast idea and line of attaching importance to science and technology of Kim Jong Un, who is opening the gate of a thriving country with science and technology as a propellant.
Encouraged by his special love and trust, scientists and technicians in the DPRK are redoubling their efforts to continuously present achievements of cutting-edge science and technology.

Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on Tuesday as regards the serious racial discrimination in the U.S. sparking off world public uproar: Some days ago, a black teenager was shot to death by a white policeman in Ferguson City, Missouri State, the U.S. and police ruthlessly cracked down on protesters, leveling their rifles at them and firing tear gas and smoke shells. Against this backdrop, there occurred a shuddering incident in another city in which a policeman shot another young black man to death.
The U.S. is, indeed, a country wantonly violating the human rights where people are subject to discrimination and humiliation due to their races and they are seized with such horror that they do not know when they are shot to death. The protests in Ferguson City and other parts of the U.S. are an eruption of the pent-up discontent and resistance of the people against racial discrimination and inequality deeply rooted in the American society.
The recent cases brought to light the human rights performance in the U.S. and underscored the urgent need to force the U.S. to sit in the dock of a human rights court. The U.S. issued every year a report taking issue with "human rights performances" of other countries as if it were an "international human rights judge" but this time suffered disgrace and became a laughing stock of the world owing to what happened in it.
The U.S. had better honestly accept the unanimous accusations of the broad international community and mind its own business, instead of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

It should not seek solutions to its problem in suppressing demonstrators but bring to light the real picture of the American society, a graveyard of human rights, and have a correct understanding of what the genuine human rights are like and how they should be guaranteed. The U.S. should know that it is bound to get itself into a big trouble unless it behaves with discretion, not knowing where it stands.

Supreme leader Kim Jong Un of the DPRK, who is Marshal and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, is called soldiers’ father. Regarding the rank and file as the most powerful and valuable beings than any sophisticated weapons, he is achieving the single-hearted unity of the whole army and building up the military capabilities by loving and trusting them.
He regards it as his duty as the Supreme Commander to look after them and bring up and lead them, and shows parental affection for them. This finds intensive expression in his ceaseless inspection tour of army units.
In general, it is a commonplace that an army commander inspects units under his command, i.e., an indispensable course for learning about and understanding their combat readiness, topographical conditions and the nature of enemy moves and attempt.
Kim Jong Un’s inspection is aimed at not merely meeting these military needs but encouraging his men with affection and trust. So, the road of his inspection of army units leads to all the army posts wherever there are soldiers as well as those of strategic importance and at which strike forces or means are deployed.
What is noteworthy in his inspection is that he inquires in details into the soldiers’ living conditions while looking round their barracks, mess halls, subsidiary food stores, washrooms, sideline bases, outdoor resting places and so on, before acquainting himself with the units’ combat readiness and seeing soldiers training. When he meets soldiers, he asks where they are from and what their parents are, showing close concern for their military service. And he often stresses that commanding officers, always keeping in their mind that they exist for the rank and file, should take good care of them like their own flesh and blood so that they could do military service in good health and full of optimism. When he inspected an island-defending unit in September last year, he walked arm in arm with the commanding officers there and said to them over and over: I entrust the soldiers to you. Please take good care of them, regarding them as your own blood brothers and turn the unit into their dear homes.
For him, soldiers are as good as his dear sons and daughters of the same blood with him, and comrades-in-arms who share will and destiny with him. As they are so precious to him, he always travels long roads to see them braving snow, rain and rough passes and seas.
It was in mid-August 2012 when the United States was attempting to stage the DPRK-targeted joint military exercise Ulji Freedom Guardian by enlisting its vassal states as well as south Korea. He got aboard a 27hp wooden boat to inspect island-defending units at the hottest spot in the southernmost of the southwestern front. This news struck the international society with wonder. That day he ordered soldiers there to deal a telling blow to the enemy and make the West Sea of Korea their final grave if they dared to start firing and even a shell fired by them felled in the territory of the DPRK. On hearing it, every one admired the DPRK’s leader for his courage and pluck as a brilliant commander. But, the world people did not know that before giving the important order, he looked round the barracks and education room to learn about the soldiers’ living conditions including the supply of water and electric power and took steps for improving their living conditions, saying that he, the Supreme Commander, came to see how they were living on islands.
The photos he posed with soldiers give a glimpse into his warm love for his men. Saying that the soldiers’ parents would feel delighted to hear that the Supreme Commander met their sons and daughters defending the first line and had photos taken with them, he posed with each of the soldiers on Mt. Osong and the coast artillery women of the Persimmon-tree Company, spending much time. When he was inspecting the dangerous post at Panumjom, symbolic of the DPRK-US confrontation, he also posed with the soldiers there.
Thanks to his ennobling love for his men, fallen soldiers are remembered for all eternity.
When he was reported that sailors, including commanding officers, of submarine chaser
No. 233 of the KPA Navy had died while discharging their combat duty in mid-October 2013, he took steps to find out all their corpses and hold a grand funeral. Later, he visited the finely built tomb, laid a flower before it and paid a tribute to the memory of the fallen sailors. And he said that there must be an owner of a grave and had his name carved on the tombstone. We can hardly find such an example in the history of mankind. Besides this, he took all possible measures to alleviate the sorrow of the bereaved families. He ensured that the state distinctions, certificates of patriotic martyrs and the Workers’ Party of Korea membership cards for them were conveyed to their families. And he saw to it that the framed pictures of the fallen soldiers wrapped in red clothes which were embroidered with the WPK’s emblem were sent to the families.
All these measures testify that he regards soldiers as his own flesh and blood and feels as if his flesh was cut when he hears that even one of them died.
It is natural that Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un is called soldiers’ father as he is always among them, looking after of their living and feeling a sense of responsibility for their destiny.

Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), gave field guidance to the Breeding Station No. 621 of the KPA which was built as a structure to be proud of in the era of the WPK.
Watching the stables built in peculiar style in a good place, cozy dwelling houses and flocks of goats and sheep in the pastures, he expressed great satisfaction, saying that they looked like a picture and a tremendous change took place in the remote mountain village and another socialist fairyland appeared there.
He went round the breeding research center, fields for comparing the species of grass for animals, breeding pens, cultural hall, dwelling houses and other places of the breeding station to learn in detail about its construction and management and operation.
He said he was pleased to see that a good work was done to round off the cultivation technique on the basis of a scientific calculation of the economic efficiency of various species of grass after creating fields for comparing the species of grass for animals in order to settle the issue of fodder.
He praised the station for meticulously conducing the work to massively increase the number of goats of good stock provided by the party for supplying them to other units and the work for rounding off the method of raising grass-eating animals.
He called on the station to play the role as a center and base in rounding off and widely introducing the method of raising grass-eating animals of good stock and gave important instructions to do so.
He met the family of Paek Song Jin and Yun Song Hui who moved to a new house that day and had a photo taken with them.
He repeatedly expressed his satisfaction, saying the longer he watched the station, the more spectacular it looked and wherever he went, everything was impeccable. He sent thanks to the soldier-builders in the name of the KPA supreme commander.
"Going round this station, I felt my heart aching at the thought of leader Kim Jong Il who worked heart and soul to solve the food problem of people all his life", Kim Jong Un said with deep emotion, adding how nice it would have been, if this splendid station had been shown to Kim Jong Il already.
He expressed expectation and belief that the officials and employees of the station would put into practice the intention of the party by breeding more grass-eating animals, always bearing in mind the love for the people shown by President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
He was accompanied by KPA Vice-Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and KPA Lieut. General Kim Jong Gwan, vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces.

In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea there are not a few establishments named after the august name of Kim Jong Suk (December 24, 1917 - September 22, 1949), who is revered by the Korean people as an anti-Japanese heroine. Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill located on the bank of the Taedong River in Pyongyang is one of them.
Kim Jong Suk set out on the road of revolutionary struggle in her early years to liberate Korea from the military occupation by the Japanese imperialists (1905-1945) and fought for a decade in the anti-Japanese armed struggle organized and led by Kim Il Sung, making tangible contribution to achieving the historic cause of national liberation. After the country’s liberation (August 15, 1945) she devoted her heart and soul to implementing Kim Il Sung’s line of building a new, democratic Korea, continuously visiting factories, farms and schools across the country.
On October 10, 1948, Kim Il Sung, together with Kim Jong Suk, came to the weedy riverside of the Taedong to select the site of a textile mill. That day Kim Jong Suk said earnestly; This site chosen by him is good. I wish to see our people, who lived in rags and hunger, dressed with quality clothes from a big textile mill. My lifelong wish will come true when the modern textile mill is built as early as possible and the beautiful cloth cascades down there.
Such an ardent desire of Kim Jong Suk who was so concerned to dress the people in good clothes was translated into reality under the meticulous care of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il.
President Kim Il Sung visited the mill on dozens of occasions and gave instructions relating with the work of the mill on over 200 occasions. He even visited the mill two days after the end of the Korean war (1950-1953) which was started by the US and reduced the whole country to ashes, and gave detailed instructions on the mill’s rehabilitation project.
Upholding the intention of the President Chairman Kim Jong Il set it as a mother factory of the country’s textile industry and solved all the problems to this end. Until the last period of his life he paid deep attention to the work of the mill and led it to take a lion’s share in the cloth production.
Under the special care and concern of the leaders the mill fulfilled the production assignments ahead of schedule for over 60 years after its inauguration. Strenuous efforts of its workers to make textile machines modern and high-speed increased the production capacity by tens of times. They introduced into production numerous inventions and technical innovation designs, thus economizing on lots of manpower, raw materials and funds and bringing huge benefits to the state. Great advance was also made in expanding the production capacity and solidifying the material and technical foundation of the mill. It has now changed into a comprehensive textile producer which produces a variety of quality cloth with an assortment of modern machines as required by the IT era.
It was originally named Pyongyang Textile Mill, but renamed Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill in December 2011 in order to hand down forever the immortal exploits performed by Kim Jong Suk for the development of the textile industry of the country.
The respected Kim Jong Un, while visiting the mill in October 2013, said that it was the intention of the Workers’ Party of Korea to produce cloth of high quality and various kinds in larger amount by ceaselessly introducing high-speed machines and upgrading the production lines on a high level. Noting that the cloth for suits and shirts produced at the mill are good in quality, he said that streets and villages would look brighter when school uniforms and various kinds of clothes for the people are made with it. Then he saw to it that a new hostel was built as befits the appearance of the socialist cultured nation so as to provide the workers, who play a big role in textile production of the country, with better living conditions. Thus, a worker’s hostel was built within six months, which is furnished with modern service facilities such as bedrooms, bathroom, beauty parlour, shop, clinic and library, and has a park for workers to conduct amusement and sports activities to their heart’s content. Visitors to the hostel admired that it was not a hostel but a hotel for workers. A banquet in celebration of May Day was held with grandeur at the hostel.

The workers of the mill are now making fresh achievements in the cloth production with redoubled spirit, bringing into reality the lofty intention of Kim Jong Suk and rendering contribution to the building of a thriving country.
