Kim Jong Il's Exploits Highly Praised
Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The exploits of leader Kim Jong Il performed for the human cause of independence will always be remembered by the world people.

The adviser to the Ugandan president said this at the inaugural ceremony of the Ugandan national preparatory committee for celebrating the birth anniversary of Kim Jong Il (the Day of the Shining Star) held on January 24.

The Day of the Shining Star is the most significant day not only for the Korean people but also for progressive mankind, he noted, and went on:

The Korean people under the leadership of the dear respected Kim Jong Un are dynamically advancing along the path of socialism.

Kim Jong Un held higher the banner of Songun true to the intentions of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

The successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 in December last year was a striking demonstration of the overall national power of Songun Korea.

I wish the Korean people great success in their drive for building an economic giant and achieving national reunification in hearty response to the New Year Address made by Kim Jong Un.
