Kim Jong Il's Exploits Praised in India
Pyongyang, February 16 (KCNA) -- An Indian national seminar was held in New Delhi on February 9 to mark the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il.

On display in its venue were his works, and publications introducing the DPRK.

The secretary of the National Council of the Communist Party of India, the secretary general of the International Kim Il Sung Prize Council and the International Kim Jong Il Prize Council who doubles as director general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea, the chairman of the Indian Society for the Study of Works of Kim Jong Il and other figures made speeches.

The speakers prayed for Kim Jong Il's immortality, saying that the DPRK turned into a powerful country thanks to February 16 when he was born.

They praised him as a peerless statesman, iron-willed brilliant commander possessed of matchless pluck, tender-hearted father of the people and guardian of socialism.

They went on:

He firmly defended the dignity and sovereignty of the country and nation with the Juche idea and Songun idea and laid a strong foundation for building a thriving nation.

He made the DPRK emerge in the international arena a nuclear weapons state, satellite manufacturer and launcher, frustrating the moves of the imperialists against socialism.

His revolutionary cause of Songun is being successfully carried forward by the dear respected Kim Jong Un.

A letter to Kim Jong Un was adopted at the seminar.
