15,000th Issue of Choson Sinbo Marked
Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- Chief Editor of the Choson Sinbo Company Choe Kwan Ik made public an article on the occasion of the 15,000th issue of Choson Sinbo on Monday. Choson Sinbo is an organ of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon).

The article says:

Choson Sinbo speaks for the will and rights of overseas Koreans.

For the 65 odd years since its foundation the paper published 15 000 issues.

The brilliant history of the paper would be unthinkable without the wise leadership and benevolence of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.

The credit for the development of the paper also goes to the valuable efforts made by the officials of Chongryon and compatriots who have carried forward the patriotic stand overcoming all sorts of trials.

The paper has discharged its noble mission as a witness of the history, a faithful companion of Koreans in Japan and their mouthpiece.

The officials of Chongryon and compatriots will work with redoubled efforts to usher in a heyday of the organization and the community of Koreans in Japan, keeping pace with the people in the homeland who are making a dynamic general advance to build a thriving nation.
