DPRK's Anniversaries Observed Abroad
Pyongyang, January 5 (KCNA) -- Meetings were held in Romania, Norway, South Africa and Bulgaria on December 21 and 23 last year to mark the 19th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army and the 93rd birth anniversary of anti-Japanese war hero Kim Jong Suk.

Constantin Rotaru, chairman of the Romanian Socialist Union, said at a meeting that the Korean People's Army has grown to be a matchless army capable of foiling any move of the imperialist allied forces including the U.S. at one blow as it holds Kim Jong Il in high esteem as its supreme commander.

Dag Norum, chairman of the Ostfold County Committee of the Communist Party of Norway, said that the DPRK has steadily advanced along the road of socialism thanks to the KPA which has developed into a-match-for-a hundred revolutionary armed forces under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.

Bonakele Majuba, secretary of the Mfumalanga Provincial Committee of the South African Communist Party, said that Kim Jong Il ceaselessly provided field guidance to various sectors of the national economy, widely leading the Korean people in their drive for building a great prosperous and powerful nation, adding that he is a peerlessly great man and distinguished leader.

Vasilka Nikiforova, chief of the "Kim Il Sung Library" in Sofia, Bulgaria, referred to the fact that Kim Jong Suk embarked on the road of revolution at her early years and took part in the great anti-Japanese war, adding that she gave birth to Kim Jong Il, the future of Korea.

Messages of greetings to Kim Jong Il were adopted at the meetings in Norway, South Africa and Bulgaria.
