Voices of War Veteran Delegates Leaving Pyongyang
| Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- War veteran delegates left the capital city of Pyongyang by train on Wednesday after attending the celebrations of the 59th War Victory Day.
Prior to departure, they gave impressions of their happy days in Pyongyang.
Hwang Yun Hong, 81, a war veteran, told KCNA:
"We had an honor of having a photo session with respected Marshal Kim Jong Un and enjoying a celebration performance of the Moranbong Band in his presence.
His benevolent image reminded us of the great Generalissimo Kim Il Sung in marshal's uniform standing on the platform of the meeting held to celebrate the war victory 59 years ago.
To see Kim Jong Un nearby was my only wish, and it was realized during the celebrations."
O Song Min, 79, a war veteran, said:
"The dear respected Kim Jong Un is a great man identical to Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
I will always keep in my mind the honor I had in the celebrations and lead all my family to be faithful to his Songun (military-first) leadership."
Kang Ki Gyun, 77, a war veteran, ardently called upon the Pyongyang citizens to strive for security and health of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
Kim Hi Dong, 78, a war veteran, said:
"Five nights and six days we spent in Pyongyang will remain in my memory forever. Back home, I will tell my family, relatives and friends about those significant days.
I'll live up to Marshal Kim Jong Un's trust in the war veterans."
