It is a great honor and pleasure for us to participate in this event which is organized to celebrate the centenary of birth of the Great Leader President Kim Il Sung.

We are aware that the last year was the saddest day for the Korean people as they lost their Great Leader General Kim Jong Il so suddenly and so unexpectedly.

The exploits made by Kim Jong Il for the prosperity and happiness of the Korean people will last forever and he will always be with us.

We wish Korean people a great success in building strong and powerful nation, concluded the letter.
