Important Days of DPRK Marked Abroad
Pyongyang, April 30 (KCNA) -- A meeting was held in Syria and film shows took place in Russia and Democratic Congo between April 20 and 22 on the occasions of the 18th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's election as chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and the 79th birthday of the Korean People's Army.

Present at the events were officials of the General Command of the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence of Syria, the Mekhobi Shtutski Company of Russia, the Ministry of Information and the State Radio and TV Broadcasting Service of Democratic Congo and masses.

The participants of the film shows watched Korean films including "Korean People's Army, Steel-Strong Ranks".

The commander-in-chief of the People's Army of Syria said that Kim Jong Il has developed the DPRK into an invulnerable socialist bulwark and the KPA into a matchless revolutionary army by pursuing Songun politics.

The manager of the Russian company said that thanks to Kim Jong Il's Songun politics the DPRK has turned into a military power which no one dares provoke.

The advisor to the minister of Information of Democratic Congo noted that the film show helped him clearly realize how loyal the KPA is to its leader.

The KPA is not mere military forces but vanguard of the revolution and construction and a guardian and creator of people's happiness, he stressed.
