Anniversary of Kim Jong Il's Work Observed
Pyongyang, May 24 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Monday dedicates a signed article to 15th anniversary of the letter "On Developing the Movement of Koreans in Japan onto a New Higher Stage" sent by General Secretary Kim Jong Il to the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and Koreans in Japan on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of its formation.

The letter comprehensively expounds the immortal leadership feats performed by President Kim Il Sung for the movement of Koreans in Japan. It clarifies it as the main orientation of the work of Chongryon for its officials and Koreans in Japan to firmly hold fast to the Juche idea as the guidelines and remain boundlessly loyal to the President in the future, too, and it as the basic mission of the movement of Koreans in Japan to defend the national rights of Koreans in Japan and carry on the drive for the prosperity of the homeland and the nation.

His letter serves as an important work that brightly indicates the road of eternal victory to be followed by Chongryon, the article says, and goes on:

The validity and vitality of the letter have been clearly demonstrated in the course of the development of the patriotic cause of Chongryon.

Unshakable is the faith of officials of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan to advance holding high his letter as the immortal banner of patriotic cause no matter how much water may flow under the bridge and steadfast is their intensive loyalty and ardent patriotism.

Officials of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan should perfect themselves as overseas citizens of Songun Korea who remain faithful to the idea and leadership of Kim Jong Il just as the first generation of Chongryon held the President in high esteem in single mind and perform laudable feats with patriotism in the drive to materialize the grand plan of Kim Jong Il for building a thriving nation, the article concludes.
