DPRK's Important Day Observed in Sweden
Pyongyang, December 8 (KCNA) -- The Sweden-Korea Friendship Association released a special issue of its magazine "Korean Information" on December 2 on the occasions of the 19th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's assumption of the supreme commandership of the Korean People's Army and the 93rd birth anniversary of Kim Jong Suk, anti-Japanese heroine.

The magazine carried a photo of Kim Jong Il waving back to the enthusiastically cheering crowd from the tribune of honor of the military parade celebrating the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea and an article devoted to the day.

The magazine said in the article that Kim Jong Il's assumption of the supreme commandership of the KPA on December 24, 1991 marked a historic event of great significance in ensuring the peace on the Korean Peninsula.

It went on:

Thanks to the Songun politics pursued by Kim Jong Il, the Korean people could victoriously conclude the arduous march and firmly defend the sovereignty of the country and the socialist system, shattering the imperialist allied forces' moves to stifle the DPRK.

His Songun politics provided a sure guarantee for paving the way for achieving the independent and peaceful reunification of the country by the concerted efforts of the nation and opening up a landmark phase of building a thriving socialist nation.

December 24 also marks the birth anniversary of Kim Jong Suk.

The Korean people are significantly commemorating her birth anniversary.

The magazine carried news that the Conference of the WPK was successfully held in the DPRK and an international preparatory committee for commemorating the centenary of birth of President Kim Il Sung was formed in Copenhagen.
