A decision was made public at the service to set a mourning period from Dec. 22 to 24.

Vasile Orleanu, chairman of the Supreme Council of the party, said in his memorial address that the life of Kim Jong Il was the one of a great man and hero, adding:

HE Kim Jong Il developed in depth the Juche idea, the Songun idea founded by President Kim Il Sung through his energetic ideological and theoretical activities, glorifying it as guiding idea in the era of independence and leading the Korean revolution along the road of victory.

HE Kim Jong Il will always live in the hearts of not only the Korean people but the world progressives for his undying feats for the Korean revolution and global independence.

We are firmly convinced that the Songun cause, the socialist cause of HE Kim Jong Il will be successfully carried forward without an inch of deviation and the struggle of the Korean people to build a thriving nation and reunify the country is sure to triumph under respected supreme leader Kim Jong Un.
