Anniversary of Kim Jong Il's Start of Work at WPK C.C. Marked Abroad
Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The 47th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's start of work at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea was marked in foreign countries from June 14 to 18.

A seminar was held in Brazil, a reading session in Uganda, a lecture in Indonesia and an art performance in Vietnam.

The chairman of the Brazilian Center for the Study of the Juche Idea said Kim Jong Il clarified the philosophical principle of the Juche idea in his work "On the Juche Idea". He noted with appreciation that the DPRK has maintained independence in all the fields of socialist construction including politics, economy and culture and turned into a military power thanks to the original Songun politics.

Victories will always be in store for the Korean people guided by the Juche idea, he added.

The chief of the Group for the Study of Songun Politics of the Kampala Coloro Higher Middle School of Uganda said the WPK developed into an invincible party that has thoroughly embodied the great Juche idea in its building and activities with its roots deeply struck among the popular masses since Kim Jong Il started his work at the WPK Central Committee.

The art troupe of the Youth Theatre of Vietnam put on the stage colorful numbers including Korean and Vietnamese songs.
