Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il who are eternal in the hearts of the progressive peoples over the world are great saints of humanity who had devoted their life to the global independence and peace and to the freedom and happiness of the people over the world.
International Kim Il Sung Foundation was established in October 2007 with the noble mission and purpose to raise the fund necessary for the development of education, public health, culture, science and technology and for the environment protection, world peace, progress and independence true to the behests of Kim Il Sung. For the last five years since its establishment, the Foundation had rendered material and spiritual efforts and assistance to realize the noble idea and behests of the peerlessly great persons.
In order to materialize the noble idea and behests of  Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, International Kim Il Sung Foundation had the Council meeting in Macao, China on August 1, 2012 and decided to expand and reform International Kim Il Sung Foundation into              Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation.
The Council agreed with the reformed Council structure, the statute and norms of the Foundation, and the reformed rules of donation and elected co-chairmen and directors of the Council.
And the Council decided to set up the headquarters of Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation in Pyongyang, the capital of the DPRK.
Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation was recently established. Many domestic and overseas Koreans and foreigners had already donated and still more desire for donation.
With the expansion and reform of International      Kim Il Sung Foundation into Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il Foundation, it can make greater contributions to the cooperation and exchange in the fields of education, public health and culture on a worldwide scale and to the peace, progress and independence of the world.

Kim Jong Un Guides Consultative Meeting of Officials in Fields of State Security and Foreign Affairs

    Pyongyang, January 26 (KCNA) -- A consultative meeting of officials in the fields of state security and foreign affairs took place as regards the grave situation prevailing in the DPRK.
    Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), convened the meeting and guided it.
    Present at the meeting were Choe Ryong Hae, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA; Hyon Yong Chol, chief of the General Staff of the KPA; Kim Won Hong, minister of State Security; Pak To Chun and Kim Yong Il, secretaries of the Central Committee of the WPK; Hong Sung Mu, vice department director of the C.C., the WPK; and Kim Kye Gwan, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs.
    Kim Jong Un received a report on the new situation and circumstances prevailing on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity.
    The successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 was an exercise of a legitimate right of a sovereign state and it was recognized by even leading special organs of the U.S. However, a grave situation was created on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity due to the unprecedented anti-DPRK moves of the hostile forces which arbitrarily and provocatively fabricated the "resolution" of the UN Security Council on tightening sanctions against the DPRK.
    Since April last year the DPRK has made every possible effort to prove the peaceful nature of the satellite launch; it ensured transparency, going beyond international practice, and chose the time when the situation was relatively peaceful for satellite launch, etc.
    However, the hostile forces deliberately denied the DPRK's right to satellite launch in a bid to use it as a pretext for stifling it.
    The U.S. and its allies took this high-handed hostile action in wanton violation of the sovereign state's independent right to develop space publicly recognized by international law. This indicates that the U.S. has reached its height in its anti-DPRK strategy to stand in confrontation with it to the last out of inveterate repugnancy and enmity towards the ideology and social system chosen by the people in the DPRK.
    This has thrown a grave obstacle to the efforts to be focused by the DPRK on economic construction so that the people may not tighten their belts any longer on the basis of the war deterrence for self-defence provided by leader Kim Jong Il all his life.
    Different countries concerned made efforts to fairly solve the problem and prevent the deterioration of the situation. But, it became clear that there was limit to their ability, as they admitted. This fact proved once again that the DPRK should defend its sovereignty by itself.
    It also became clear that there can be no denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula before the world has been denuclearized.
    At the consultative meeting Kim Jong Un expressed the firm resolution to take substantial and high-profile important state measures in view of the prevailing situation as the stand had already been clarified by the National Defence Commission and the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK through their statements that powerful physical countermeasures would be taken to defend the dignity of the nation and the sovereignty of the country. He advanced specific tasks to the officials concerned. -0-

Pyongyang, January 24 (KCNA) -- The National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK issued a statement on Thursday.
    It said:
    Our successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 was a great jubilee in the history of the nation as it placed the nation's dignity and honor on the highest plane and a spectacular success made in the efforts to develop space for peaceful purposes recognized by the world.
    The world people who love justice and value conscience unanimously rejoice as their own over the signal success made by our country, not a big one, by its own efforts.
    Even space institutions of a hostile country accustomed to have repugnancy towards others could not but recognize the DPRK's successful satellite launch for peaceful purposes, from a low-profile stance.
    This being a hard reality, the U.S. at the outset of the year termed our satellite launch "long-range missile launch," "wanton violation" of the UN resolutions and "blatant challenge" to world peace and security in a bid to build up public opinion on this. Finally, it prodded the UNSC into cooking up a new resolution on tightening sanctions against the DPRK.
    The keynote of the resolution was worked out through backstage dealing with the U.S. as a main player and it was adopted at the UNSC with blind hand-raising by its member nations. This goes to clearly prove that the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK has entered a new dangerous phase.
    This shows, at the same time, that those big countries, which are obliged to take the lead in building a fair world order, are abandoning without hesitation even elementary principle, under the influence of the U.S. arbitrary and high-handed practices, failing to come to their senses.
    Moreover, this also indicates that the UNSC, which should regard it as its mission to guarantee sovereign rights and security of its member nations, has turned into a defunct marionette international body on which no hope can be pinned.
    The DPRK National Defence Commission solemnly declares as follows as regards the adoption of the entirely unreasonable resolution on the DPRK:
    We totally reject all the illegal resolutions on the DPRK adopted by the UNSC.
    We have never recognized all forms of base resolutions tightening sanctions cooked up by the hostile forces to encroach upon the DPRK's sovereignty.
    Sovereignty is what keeps a country and nation alive.
    The country and the nation without sovereignty are more dead than alive.
    The satellite launch was the exercise of an independent right pertaining to the DPRK as well as its legitimate sovereignty recognized by international law.
    Therefore, the U.S. and those countries which launched satellites before have neither justification nor reason to find fault with the DPRK's satellite launch.
    They are making a brigandish assertion that what they launched were satellites but what other country launched was a long-range missile. They are seriously mistaken if they think this assertion can work in the bright world today.
    The U.S. should clearly know that the times have changed and so have the army and the people of the DPRK.
    Along with the nationwide efforts to defend the sovereignty, the DPRK will continue launching peaceful satellites to outer space one after another.
    2. As the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK has entered more dangerous phase, overall efforts should be directed to denuclearizing big powers including the U.S. rather than the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
    The biggest threat to the peace and security on the Korean Peninsula is the hostile policy toward the DPRK being pursued by all kinds of dishonest forces including the U.S. as well as the U.S. huge nuclear armed forces that back the policy.
    The army and people of the DPRK drew a final conclusion that only when the denuclearization of the world is realized on a perfect and preferential basis including the denuclearization of the U.S., will it be possible to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and ensure peace and security of the DPRK.
    The U.S. is taking the lead in encroaching upon the sovereignty of the DPRK, its allies are siding with it and the UN Security Council has been reduced into an organization bereft of impartiality and balance. Under this situation the DPRK can not but declare that there will no longer exist the six-party talks and the September 19 joint statement.
    No dialogue on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will be possible in the future even though there may be dialogues and negotiations on ensuring peace and security in the region including the Korean Peninsula.
    3. We will launch an all-out action to foil the hostile policy toward the DPRK being pursued by the U.S. and those dishonest forces following the U.S., and safeguard the sovereignty of the country and the nation.
    The UN Security Council resolution on expanding sanctions against the DPRK, which was adopted on the initiative of the U.S., represents the most dangerous phase of the hostile policy toward the DPRK.
    The army and people of the DPRK will never remain an on-looker to such happenings in which the sovereignty of the nation is encroached upon and the supreme interests of the country are violated.
    Under the prevailing situation, the army and people of the DPRK will turn out in an all-out action to defend its sovereignty which is more precious than their own lives and frustrate the moves of the U.S. and its allies to isolate and stifle the DPRK.
    The drive for building an economic power being pushed forward by the army and people of the DPRK, the effort to conquer space that has entered a new phase and the endeavors to bolster the deterrence for safeguarding the country and defending its security will all orientate toward the purpose of winning in the all-out action for foiling the U.S. and all other hostile forces' maneuvers.
    We do not hide that a variety of satellites and long-range rockets which will be launched by the DPRK one after another and a nuclear test of higher level which will be carried out by it in the upcoming all-out action, a new phase of the anti-U.S. struggle that has lasted century after century, will target against the U.S., the sworn enemy of the Korean people.
    Settling accounts with the U.S. needs to be done with force, not with words as it regards jungle law as the rule of its survival.
    The world will clearly see how the army and people of the DPRK punish all kinds of hostile forces and emerge as a final victor while following the just road of defending its sovereignty, convinced of the justice of its cause. -0-
