Day of Shining Star Marked
Pyongyang, February 15 (KCNA) -- Events took place in various countries on the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il.

They included meeting, photo exhibition, film show, lecture and remembrance meeting in Mexico, Ukraine, Pakistan, Mongolia and France between February 6 and 8.

At an event the general secretary of the C.C., the People's Socialist Party of Mexico praised Kim Jong Il as a prominent thinker and theoretician, a rare political elder and a peerlessly brilliant commander of Songun who led the revolutionary cause of Juche along the road of victory with his profound ideas and theories and extraordinary leadership and as a peerless patriot and a benevolent father of the people who adorned his life with noble dedication to the country and its people.

Andre Aubry, president of the France-Korea Friendship Association, referred to the immortal feats performed by him for the building of a thriving nation in the DPRK and for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country and global independence.

The chairman of the Association for the Study of Songun Politics in Mariupol City of Ukraine noted it is ascribable to the Songun politics that the DPRK is demonstrating its might as a politico-ideological power and a military power and is pushing back the frontiers of science and technology in all fields through a high-pitched drive for the industrial revolution in the new century for the improvement of the standard people's living.

D. Michka, general manager of the Mongolian HUM Company Ltd., said there are many leaders and heads of state in the world but no leader dedicated himself to his country and its people all his life without having even a single day of rest as Kim Jong Il.

Messages to the dear respected Kim Jong Un were adopted at the events in Ukraine, Pakistan, Mongolia and France.
