Important Days of DPRK Marked in Laos
Pyongyang, November 24 (KCNA) -- A book and photo exhibition, a film show and an art performance took place at the Laos-Korea Youth Friendship Centre on Nov. 18 on the occasions of the 17th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's assumption of office as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army and the 91st birth anniversary of Kim Jong Suk, an anti-Japanese war hero.

Displayed in the venue of the events were famous works of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and books and photos showing the great vitality of the Songun politics.

Speakers there said that under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il the Korean people have achieved shining successes in all fields of politics, military affairs, economy and culture while steadily advancing along the road of socialism, decisively smashing the imperialists' anti-DPRK moves.

Saying that they became well aware of the validity of the Songun politics through the books and photos, they stressed that the DPRK football players beat the U.S. team to emerge the winner at the first FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, a striking manifestation of the vitality of the Songun politics pursued by Kim Jong Il.

Put on the stage of the art performance were such Korean songs as "Our Leader" and "We Are Grateful for Our Party."
