Anniversary of Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Marked
Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- The Finland-Korea Society issued a bulletin on July 23 to mark the 57th anniversary of the Korean people's victory in the Fatherland Liberation War.

The bulletin noted that July 27, 1953 was registered as the day of great victory when the Korean people defended the freedom and independence of the country, shattering the myth of U.S. imperialism's "mightiness".

The Korean people made great contribution to preserving global peace and security by reliably defending the dignity and sovereignty of the country, it said, and went on:

Today they are making significant success in the showdown with the U.S.-led imperialist allied forces, holding high the banner of Songun closely rallied around General Secretary Kim Jong Il.

The DPRK, which built up the powerful nuclear deterrent for self-defense, has become a model showing how developing countries should do to defend their interests from the U.S. moves.

The bulletin held that the U.S. should draw a serious lesson from the defeat it suffered 57 years ago and immediately respond to the DPRK's proposal for concluding a peace treaty and stop at once all sorts of military threat and war exercises for aggression against the DPRK.

The Finland-Korea Society extends full support and solidarity to the Korean people in their struggle for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country and expresses belief that the DPRK will emerge a great prosperous and powerful socialist nation in the near future, the bulletin stressed.
