The Democratic People's Republic of Korea greets its diamond jubilee on September this year
The founding of the DPRK 62 years ago was a historic event which declared that Korea embarked on the road toward the building of a great, prosperous and powerful socialist nation.
Since its founding, the DPRK has followed the socialist road steadfastly and now developed into a politico-ideological power.
The DPRK government has thoroughly embodied the Juche idea and the Songun idea authored by President Kim Il Sung (1912-1994) in all its state activities: It armed all the members of society with the Juche idea and the Songun idea and imbued the whole society with these ideas.
It also employed as its major political mode the benevolent and all-embracing politics under the slogan of "Serve the people!" This has led all the Korean people to unite closely around their leader in ideology, will and moral obligation achieving the single-hearted unity of the country.
Noteworthy in the whole course of its state activities is the maintenance of the Songun line.
The principle of Songun underlies all the activities of the country in ideology, politics, the economy, culture and other fields. The national reunification movement and external activities also embody the requirements of the principle.
Songun politics, adopted as a basic political mode has provided the DPRK with a treasured sword with which to firmly defend the national sovereignty and dignity and assure the building of a socialist power in whatever difficult circumstances.
As it upholds the banner of the Juche idea and the Songun idea, the DPRK, though not so large in territorial area, has proved itself in the present international community as a political power, a country strong in ideology, nobody can ignore.
It has also been turned, into a military power, by putting great efforts into developing self -reliant defence capabilities.
Adherence to the principle of self-reliance in national defence, implementation of the line of making the entire army into an army of cadres an modernizing it, arming all the people and fortifying the whole country, and the building of powerful defence industry-these are the important requirements the DPRK has met in building the country into a military power.
When the United States unleashed the Korean war (1950-1953) against the DPRK with a history of only two years, the DPRK immediately went over to counterattack and during the three years of the war inflicted a crushing defeat on the US, the first of its kind it had suffered in its history, putting to shame the “strongest” country in the world.
The credit goes to the Songun line the DPRK has maintained since its founding.
After the war, too, it continued to hold up the banner of Songun, stepping up the building of a military power.
The Korean People’s Army, as required by the line of turning the entire army into an army of cadres and modernizing it, has equipped itself with advanced military science and technology, methods of modern warfare, powerful means for both offensive and defensive, and prepared all the army men for skillful handling of state-of-the-art weapons and combat equipment", thereby emerging invincible.

The work to arm all the people and fortify the whole country has been accomplished on a high level, thus preparing the people to be able to deal a smashing blow to the enemy in emergency with arms in one hand and working tools in the other and transforming the whole country into an impregnable fortress with formidable establishments for defence in every part.
Development of defence industry has always been a great concern of the DPRK. With several-socialist countries collapsing one after another and the imperialist allied forces focusing their anti-.socialist offensive on the DPRK in the end of last century, it put forward an economic line of' giving priority to the development of defence industry and consistently implemented it. In the course of this it has prepared a strongest war deterrent.
Eye-opening achievements have also been made in all fields of social life, including the economy and culture.
The government successfully carried out reconstruction after the Korean war, and realized the socialist transformation of relations of production in urban and rural areas in no more than four to five years, thus, establishing the socialist system in 1958. It fulfilled the historic task of industrialization in only 14 years, transforming the past colonial agrarian country into a socialist industrial state.
The national economy developed into a powerful self-reliant one, capable enough to build the West Sea Barrage and other monumental establishments on its own already in the 1980s.
As is well known to the world, it placed its first artificial earth satellite Kwangmyongsong1 in orbit in August 1998 at its first launch. The successful launching shook the whole world for it was fait accompli in the international community that socialist Korea would soon collapse, strangled by critical economic difficulties caused by the extreme blockade and sanctions of the imperialist allied forces and the consecutive natural calamities.
The DPRK demonstrated through the event its inexhaustible economic potential, the might of the self-reliant national economy built up for decades.
The DPRK enjoys acclaim of the whole world, as a country where people's well-being is on systematic improvement, nobody knows what tax is, everybody benefits from free education and medical service and the art enjoys its heyday.
It is the goal and the will of the DPRK government to open wide the gate to a great prosperous and powerful socialist nation in 2012 marking the centennial birthday of President Kim Il Sung, father of socialist Korea. It will achieve this ambitious goal without fail
Congratulations on the 62nd anniversary of the DPRK!

Leader and Guards Unit
Korean leader Kim long Il started his Songun-based leadership with his inspection of the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the Korean People's Army on August 25, 1960. Up to the outset of this year he has visited this guard’s unit score of times.
Like Tank men in 1950s
Inspecting this unit on August 25, 50 years ago, Kim Jong Il said to the commanding officer of the unit that they should fight bravely for the country and the people as the guards tank men did during the Korean war (1950-1953).
When the United States unleashed the Korean War on June 25, 1950, the tank men of this unit, by counteroffensive order of President Kim Il Sung, liberated Seoul three days after the outbreak of the war. In high appreciation of the feat performed by the then 105 Tank Brigade in the battle, Kim Il Sung promoted the brigade to the division and conferred the title of "Seoul Guards Tank Division" on the unit.
Dumbfounded by the attack of surging tanks of the unit, the then brass hats of the Pentagon uttered troubled cries, saying that it is an attack without formalities and that surprise attacks by the tanks' and the infantry from different angles and with diverse scale and forms are elusive battles quite different from the street warfare learnt from the tactics department of the US land forces.
Tracing back to the world history of war, it was the infantrymen that charged into streets first to hoist the flag of victory. It can be said that the first example that the tank men blasted their way into a city to raise the flag of victory was set by the KPA tank men.
That day Kim Jong Il said to the commanding officers that the unit should, in the future, too, wipe out' the enemies as the guards tank men had trounced aggressors mercilessly during the Korean war, in case they dare pounce upon the DPRK.
Into invincible armoured force
One day in December 1996 Kim Jong Il visited again the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division and, in' spite of the biting cold, saw the tank men under training.
The tank men fully demonstrated their combat readiness, driving freely their tanks on the snow-covered steep mountains despite unfavourable conditions. While carefully watching the training of the tank men with a special attention to the advance speed and battle array of the tanks, Kim Jong Il gave detailed instructions on the use of tanks and their tactics in the modern warfare.
The commander of the unit was overwhelmed with surprise at his explanation as he was well versed in the tank and its tactics as much as the experts concerned.
That day he dropped in at a technology lecture room to acquaint himself in detail with the technical equipment for training and the indoor training and specified the ways and orientation to training soldiers into competent tankmen.
Making the rounds of a greenhouse, mess hall, bedroom and education room of the division, he learned in detail about the living conditions of the service personnel and earnestly stressed need for the division to prepare all its tankmen into the heroes who would devote their lives without hesitation for the country and the people.
One May day in 1999 and on April 15, 2000 he set forth tasks and ways of further strengthening and developing this guards unit.
Under his leadership the division has grown into an invincible armoured unit capable of repulsing any formidable enemy.
By dint of Songun
Kim Jong Il gave field guidance to the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division at the outset of this year. It can be said that this is the demonstration of unshakable will of Kim Jong Il, who started his Songun-based revolutionary leadership with the inspection of this unit 50 years ago, to vigorously advance the socialist cause on the strength of Songun in the future, too.
That day, too, he saw the tank men under training for hours despite the biting cold.
Encouraged by his inspection, the tank men drove their tanks forward like the surging waves, smashing to pieces the "enemy's positions" with merciless firing in the fighting spirit to annihilate the enemies at a stroke if they dare to invade even an inch of the land of their country.
Noting that the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division always played the role as a guards unit not only in the battles but in ideology, he said that socialist Korea has been able to win victory after another, surmounting all trials-and challenges of history as it has such steel-like guards units as the 105 Tank Division.
The DPRK with many guards units like the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division will demonstrate its majestic appearance by dint of Songun in the future, too.

Statement of National Chairman

We are greeting meaningfully the 50th anniversary from August 25 1960 when leader Kim Jong Il began his Songun-based leadership by inspecting Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the Korean People’s Army
We have the honor to present our warmest congratulations to H. E. leader Kim Jong Il who frustrated the isolate-and-stifling offensive of imperialists and demonstrates the dignity of Juche Korea as political and military power by dint of Songun-based leadership.
The Songun-based politics in the DPR Korea serves as a precious weapon assuring the building of the powerful nation and the destiny of the country and nation.
The KPA soldiers and Korean people are now striving to effect a new revolutionary upsurge to widely open the gate of a great, prosperous and powerful nation in 2012, the centenary birth anniversary of president Kim Il Sung.
On behalf of all adherents of Juche idea in Nigeria , I extend the support to the Korean people in their struggle for building the powerful nation and achieving the independent and peaceful reunification of the country under the Songun leadership.
