Pyongyang, August 28 (KCNA) -- The dear respected Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), Monday sent a congratulatory message to the participants in the meeting for celebrating Youth Day and other youth across the country.
In the message Kim Jong Un extended warm congratulations and greetings from the way-off front to the participants in the meeting and the young men and women who are greeting the first Youth Day in the new century of Juche with happiness and excitement.
The celebrations of Youth Day this year are a grand political event that demonstrates the loyalty and stamina of the Korean youth dynamically advancing toward the final victory following the Workers' Party of Korea while glorifying the proud history and tradition of the Korean youth movement that has emerged ever-victorious thanks to the WPK's idea of attaching importance to the youth, he stressed.
Youth Day is an eternal holiday of the Korean youth and it was provided and brought into bloom by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, he said, and went on:
85 years ago from now, the President formed the Korean Communist Youth League with new-type young revolutionaries and rallied the youth, who were groping for a way to follow in the adverse circumstances of a colony, around a genuine vanguard organization, helping them become the torch shining all over the country and the hammer breaking the chains of slavery in the noble and patriotic struggle for the country and the nation.
Kim Jong Il saw to it that the day was instituted Youth Day to glorify the significant day when the Korean youth movement originated, and give a steady continuity to the precious tradition of the Juche-oriented youth movement.
Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il pursued the unique policy of attaching importance and loving youth throughout their revolutionary leadership and perfectly solved the youth issue for the first time in history with their deep interest in the issue of bringing them up to be successors to the revolution.
There had been youth in Korea's history spanning 5 000 years but never have there been such youth living in the praiseworthy era as those in the present times who are performing feats for the country and the people, being honored as young vanguard of the party.
The WPK and the people regard it as their great pride and honor to have the big contingent of dependable youth and successors.
Kim Jong Un highly praised the young people for giving full play to their heroic stamina and resourcefulness in building a thriving nation under the uplifted torchlight of revolution that was handed over by Kim Jong Il, singing songs of struggle and unity just as the young communists did when they declared the birth of the Young Communist League in the presence of Kim Il Sung.
The WPK expects that the young people would give fuller play to their bravery, unity and militancy in the struggle for defending the country and in the grand drive for building a thriving nation at present by inheriting the heroic fighting spirit of the revolutionary martyrs and forerunners as befitting the indomitable young vanguard that has grown up under the care of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, he said, setting forth the tasks to do so:
The young people should devotedly defend the socialist country by inheriting the heroic fighting spirit displayed by the defenders of the country in the 1950s.
The service personnel of the Korean People's Army should load their powerful arms of the strong revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu with burning hatred for the enemies, aim at targets, fight decisive battles like fierce tigers and perform proud military merits in the sacred war for national reunification.
If the enemy brings dark clouds of a reckless war to hang over the country, the young men and women should replace sickles, hammers or pens with arms and courageously turn out just as the defenders of the country in the 1950s did and thus wipe out the aggressors at one blow through all-people resistance and firmly defend their streets, villages and schools.
The young people should effect fresh miracles and innovations in difficult and toilsome work sites for building a thriving nation and thus become young heroes glorifying the country and the era.
All of them should regard their work sites as trenches for charge and make the flames of Hamnam flare up more furiously in the spirit and mettle of the Korean youth who like to make a revolution and struggle and thus play a big role in carrying out the plans of the national economy through a dynamic charge for production.
The young people should become pioneers, masters and brilliant talents pushing back the frontiers of latest science and technology by dint of intelligence and technology with worldwide judgment and perspective self-esteem under the uplifted slogan "Let Us Open Shortcut to Final Victory by Pushing Back the Frontiers of Latest Science and Technology!"
They should become excellent youngsters in the era of Songun who like Korean style and anything Korean and have beautiful and noble moral traits and do more good things for society and the collective.
The more difficult and harder charges become, the more alive they should make every place, loudly singing songs, having cheerful dances and playing sports games full of optimism and enthusiasm.
Kim Jong Un said he feels reassured as there are the young main unit which will carry the revolution to a final victory.
The WPK will successfully carry forward the outstanding politics of giving importance to the youth pursued by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and bring earlier the historic cause of national reunification and the final victory of the building of a thriving nation by the efforts of the young people, he stressed.
He once again warmly congratulated the young vanguard and young people across the country who demonstrated before the whole world the steadfast faith and will of the successors to the cause of Juche and Songun, running with the torchlight of revolution to Pyongyang, where the great Generalissimos lie in state, from Mt. Paektu and Mt. Osong.
He expressed firm belief that the young people would dynamically struggle for the final victory of the great cause of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism under the red flag of the WPK and thus successfully perform their sacred mission and tasks assigned for the era, the revolution, the country and its people. -0-


KIM JONG UN SENDS CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE TO YOUTH

KIM JONG UN CLARIFIES WPK′S FIRM WILL TO BUILD REUNIFIED THRIVING NATION, TIGHTLY HOLDING ARMS OF SONGUN


Pyongyang, August 25 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Marshal Kim Jong Un made a speech at the banquet given in celebration of August 25, the anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's start of the Songun revolutionary leadership.
He said August 25 marks the 52nd anniversary of great Generalissimo Kim Jong Il's start of the Songun revolutionary leadership, adding that Kim Jong Il, totally dedicating himself with his patriotic will, holding high the banner of Songun all his life, built up an invincible military power and provided the might of the great unity between the army and people to be envied by the whole world and thus placed the dignity of the country and its people on the highest level in the history of the nation. These exploits will remain shining forever, he stressed.
He, reflecting the unanimous desire of all the service personnel of the KPA and people, paid highest tribute and extended eternal glory to Kim Jong Il, who dedicated himself to Songun journeys for patriotic devotion to the country and its people, burning his heart with warmth and love for them all his life.
"I am pleased to be amongst you comrades-in-arms in the eastern sector of the front on this significant day at a time when the enemies are busy with provocative drills for a war of aggression under our nose," he said, and continued:
"August 25, along with April 25, is a historic day to go down in the history of the building of our revolutionary armed forces and the history of our country. The might of the KPA proud of being a powerful revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu with tremendous capability and the dignity of our country, a world-class military power and a full-fledged nuclear weapons state, would be unthinkable without this day.
It is the firm determination and will of the Workers' Party of Korea to defend the security of the country and the gains of revolution and build a reunified thriving nation on this land, tightly holding the arms of Songun provided by Generalissimo Kim Jong Il with so much effort, making journeys for the Songun revolutionary leadership all his life.
The U.S. and the south Korean puppet army are staging large-scale war drills for aggression targeted against us even with forces of their allies involved, posing a grave threat to our security.
During my inspection of units on the forefront in the southwestern sector of the front I already issued an order to the KPA to keep itself highly alerted against the reckless moves of the enemies and follow them with high vigilance. If the enemies fire even a single shell on our inviolable territory and territorial waters, the KPA should deal prompt deadly blows at them and the whole army should turn out as one and lead the battle to an all-out counter-offensive for accomplishing the great cause of national reunification. I issued this order to the whole army and examined the operational plan for implementing it and finally signed it.
The courageous officers and men of the KPA, upon receiving this order, occupied their battle positions to cope with the reckless moves of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces and are now waiting for a final order for charge for a life-and death-battle against the enemies.
There is a limit to our patience.
'Counter a provocation with a prompt counterattack and a war of aggression with a great, just war for national reunification!' This is our principled stand and steadfast will.
We will not remain an onlooker to the enemies' frantic moves for aggression but make every possible effort to protect the destiny of the country and the nation.
It is the truth proved by history that no force on earth can overpower the people who are all out for the cause of justice.
If another war breaks out on this land due to the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces' intolerable actions, though we do not want it, the war will only bring a shameless doom to them and our great nation will greet a new bright day of national reunification.
Only victory and glory will be in store for us advancing under the uplifted immortal banners bearing portraits of the great Comrade Kim Il Sung and Comrade Kim Jong Il with broad smile on their face.
Availing myself of this meaningful opportunity, I would like to renew once again the firm resolution to steadfastly and invariably keep to the path of Songun traversed by Comrade Kim Jong Il, arms in arms and shoulder to shoulder with you, for our country and revolution."
A rosy future is in store for the Korean people, he said, calling for holding more tightly the arms of revolution to protect their happiness and safety and the dignity of the power of Mt. Paektu.
Kim Jong Un proposed a toast to the final victory of the revolutionary causes of Juche and Songun pioneered by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and led by them successfully, to the health of the commanders and commanding officers of combined units present and all servicepersons and to the victorious advance of the powerful revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu. -0-

Friday, August 24, 2012


Pyongyang, August 23 (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, inspected the Thrice Three-Revolution Red Flag Kamnamu Company (a company under persimmon trees) under KPA Unit 4302.
He was greeted by commanding officers of the unit and the company.
He presented a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle to the company and had a photo taken with its soldiers, expressing his expectation and belief that they would defend the socialist country as firm as an iron wall.
Conducted by the commanding officers, Kim Jong Un looked round the monument to the field guidance of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
Then he went round an education room, soldiers' bed rooms and mess hall.
The mere name of the company touches everybody, Kim Jong Un said, adding the company has been recorded in the history of the Songun revolutionary leadership as the one which shows Kim Jong Il's love for soldiers and is well-known at home and abroad for it.
Kim Jong Un said there are in the company at present not many soldiers who were received by Kim Jong Il, underscoring the need to invariably carry forward the spirit and tradition of the company and glorify the immortal exploits of Kim Jong Il recorded in the history of the company though an old generation is replaced by a new one.
Kim Jong Un was satisfied to learn that the company has preserved the desks in the education room as they were since the field guidance of Kim Il Sung several decades ago.
He dropped in at the bedroom visited by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and saw the places where they were seated and even touched a blanket to guess its quality.
At the wash-cum-bath room, Kim Jong Un was briefed on the steam bath using hemp.
At the mess hall, he saw a list of daily food supply norm, asking if the company supplies food to the soldiers according to it and if there is anything insufficient. He called for supplying food to them as prescribed.
Seeing crabs among varieties of food under preparation at the kitchen, Kim Jong Un asked where they were caught, how they were cooked and what soldiers liked best.
Kim Jong Un visited a salt farm operated by the company itself.
He looked round the fire position of the company to acquaint himself with the performance of its combat duty.
He watched the fire position, combat and technical equipment and defence fortification associated with the footprints of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, giving precious instructions.
He warmly encouraged the company's service personnel, telling them that they should join hands with their supreme commander, reunify the country without fail and eternally glorify the exploits performed by the generalissimos. He added he believed in the service personnel on the eastern front and reposed deep trust in the women revolutionaries defending a post on the front.
He walked the road leading to the post and asked how many persimmons the company gathered last year. Saying persimmons still look unripe, he said he would come again in a season when persimmons get ripe.
He spared time to watch a performance given by the company's art group.
Put on the stage were such colorful numbers as chorus "March of the Korean Youth", narration and song "General and Our Kamnamu Company", solo and pangchang "Boundless Is Our Yearning", sextet "Our Leader Loved by People" and group poem recital and chorus "Let's Protect General Kim Jong Un with Our Lives".
He gave his big hands to congratulate them on their successful performance.
Kim Jong Un had a talk with the company's soldiers.
He told them to set an example to be followed by the whole army by successfully making preparations for combat and conducting good art group activities. He called on them to keep themselves highly alerted in view of enemies' reckless maneuvers for a war of aggression and watch with high vigilance the enemies' moves. He ordered them to send the enemies to the bottom of the sea even if one of them intrudes into the territorial waters of the DPRK.
Reading the minds of the soldiers reluctant to part from him, he told them to stand by him one by one and had a photo taken with them.
At the end of the photo session, he promised them to visit the company again and have a photo taken with its commander and political commissar who were absent in the photo session. -0-
