Immortal Feats Associated with WPK Foundation

   Pyongyang, October 9 (KCNA) -- A stream of people are visiting the Party Founding Museum, the Monument to Party Founding and the Korean Revolution Museum on the occasion of the 61st anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea (October 10). Looking round revolutionary data and relics showing the fact that President Kim Il Sung accomplished the historical cause of founding the Party in a short span of time following the liberation of the country, the visitors recollect his exploits performed in the Party-building.
    The President defeated the Japanese imperialists and triumphantly returned home in Juche 34 (1945) 20 years after he left the country. Putting off his home visit, he set out on the work for founding the Party without delay.
    At that time, the factionalists, who did a great harm to the Korean revolution historically, and the renegades to the revolution styled themselves "revolutionaries" and "patriots" and deceived the working people, thus creating difficulties in achieving the unity of the ranks.
    The President, basing himself on the rich experience accumulated for the foundation of the revolutionary Party during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle, put forward the principle of instituting a powerful central leading body of the Party.
    First of all, he dispatched anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters to each province, major cities and counties so as to arrange and expand local party organizations and to rally the revolutionaries who conducted activities separately.
    Thanks to the wise leadership of the President and the energetic activities of the political workers, conditions for founding a new type of the revolutionary party were created.
    On the basis of the preparation, the President convened a preliminary meeting for the foundation of the Party on October 5, 1945.
    At the meeting, he smashed to pieces the efforts the factionalists made to lead the meeting to rupture, clamoring about the "Central Committee of Seoul."
    An inaugural congress of the Party was held in Pyongyang at last on October 10, 1945 with the presence of the President. The congress proclaimed the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea (the then Central Organizing Committee of the Communist Party of North Korea) to the world.
    The foundation of the WPK was a brilliant victory of the historical struggle for founding a revolutionary party of the working class into which the President had poured his heart and soul during the revolutionary activities and its precious fruition.

    This proposal is the most reasonable way of averting a war and achieving a peaceful reunification, given the fact that different systems have existed in the north and the south for more than half a century.

S. Korean Army Commits Grave Military Provocation

   Pyongyang, October 9 (KCNA) -- The south Korean army committed a grave military provocation in a forefront area on Oct. 7, according to a military source. At around 12:30 that day south Korean troops entrenched at the MP post near Marker of the Military Demarcation Line No. 0815 in the central sector of the front fired at least 60 12.7 mm caliber machine-gun bullets at servicemen of the Korean People's Army on a routine military duty in the area of the DPRK on the opposite side.

El ejercito surcoreano comete grave provocacion militar en el frente

   Pyongyang, 9 de octubre (ATCC) -- Segun fuentes castrenses, el ejercito surcoreano incurrio el dia 7 en una grave provocacion militar en los alrededores de la primera linea del frente. A eso de las 12 y media, los uniformados surcoreanos de un puesto de gendarmeria cercano a la marca No. 0815 de la Linea de Demarcacion Militar de la region central del frente, dispararon unas 60 balas con una ametralladora de grueso calibre de 12.7mm contra los militares del Ejercito Popular de Corea que cumplian su mision regular.
    Esa provocacion imprudente e imperdonable, que se registro a plena luz del dia, amenazo gravemente la vida de los militares del EPC.
    Por lo tanto, deviene un abierto desafio a la parte Norte.
    Este caso no se extendio a un choque armado entre ambas partes gracias a la gran paciencia y el control de los uniformados norcoreanos.
    Las autoridades militares del Sur de Corea deben actuar con prudencia al reflexionar de la nefasta consecuencia que emanen de tales actos en la linea avanzada del frente donde persiste un enfrentamiento agudo entre las fuerzas armadas de ambas partes.

     Bajo la brillante direccion del PTC fundado el 10 de octubre de 1945 la revolucion del Songun de Corea avanzo con firmeza por la senda victoriosa y dejo una huella gloriosa en la confrontacion con el imperialismo yanqui que ostenta la supremacia mundial, recordo.
     Por ultimo, recalco que el PSR confia en que bajo la diestra direccion del PTC, heredero de las tradiciones revolucionarias de la UDI, siempre saldra victoriosa la revolucion del Songun, fundamentada en la idea Juche.
     Dilip Barua, secretario general del Comite Central del Partido Comunista de Bangladesh (Marxista-Leninista) dijo en su declaracion fechada 5 que el PTC significa la bandera de victoria para el pueblo coreano y el faro de esperanza de la humanidad progresista del mundo que lucha por construir una nueva sociedad independiente.

Inmortales hazanas realizadas en la fundacion del PTC

   Pyongyang, 9 de octubre (ATCC) -- Con motivo del 61o aniversario de la fundacion del Partido del Trabajo de Corea (PTC) estan abarrotados de visitantes el Museo de Historia de la Fundacion del Partido, el Monumento a la Fundacion del Partido y el Museo de la Revolucion Coreana. Los concurrentes, al recorrer los datos y objetos historicos revolucionarios, vuelven a recordar las hazanas que acumulo el Presidente Kim Il Sung al realizar la historica causa de la fundacion en el partido de post-liberacion.
    El Presidente derroto en el 34 (1945) de la Era Juche a los imperialistas japoneses y retorno triunfalmente a la patria. Dio inicio a la labor de fundar el partido posponiendo la visita a su querida aldea natal de que salio hace 20 anos.
    En aquel tiempo, los elementos fraccionalistas y traidores a la revolucion, quienes daban grandes danos a la revolucion coreana, se autodenominaron "revolucionarios" y "patriotas" y embaucaron a las masas trabajadoras poniendo asi un gran obstaculo a la union de las personas.
    Basandose en las experiencias en la obra de fundacion del partido revolucionario realizada desde el periodo de la lucha revolucionaria antijaponesa, el Presidente presento la orientacion de organizar el poderoso organo de direccion central del partido.
    Antes todo, envio a los combatientes antijaponeses a las provincias, importantes ciudades y distritos para arreglar y ampliar las organizaciones locales del partido y agrupar a los revolucionarios que actuaban de manera dispersa.
    Gracias a la sabia direccion del Presidente y las dinamicas actividades de los trabajadores politicos enviados a las localidades fueron preparadas las condiciones para fundar el partido revolucionario de nuevo tipo.
    Sobre la base de estos preparativos el Presidente convoco el 5 de octubre de 1945 una reunion previa para la fundacion del partido.
    En ella llevo a la frustracion cabal la intencion de los sectaristas que al hablar del "centro de Seul" maniobraban para llevarla al fracaso.
    Por fin, tuvo lugar el dia 10 en Pyongyang el congreso para la fundacion del partido con la presencia del Presidente, en el cual se proclamo a todo el mundo la fundacion del Partido del Trabajo de Corea (Comite Organizativo Central del Partido Comunista del Norte de Corea).
    Este evento fue victoria brillante y fruto de la lucha historica del Presidente quien desde su empeno en el camino de la revolucion venia haciendo todos los esfuerzos por la fundacion del partido revolucionario de la clase obrera.
