Kim Jong Il's Birth Anniversary Celebrated in Different Countries
Pyongyang, February 21 (KCNA) -- Meetings to celebrate the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il took place in Romania, Poland, Sweden and Uzbekistan from Feb. 7 to 13.

Daniel Dediu, chairman of the Romanian Workers' Association, praised Kim Jong Il as a great leader who made tremendous contributions to the Korean revolution and the cause of global independence.

The DPRK legitimately ranked itself among nuclear weapons states and space powers thanks to the firm faith and will of the dear respected Kim Jong Un, supreme leader, who is reliably carrying forward the revolutionary cause of the preceding leaders, the chairman noted.

The chairman of the Poland-DPRK Association said that it is an expression of absolute trust of the Korean people in Kim Jong Il that they thank him for all the achievements made in the country.

The chairman of the Uzbekistan-DPRK Friendship Forum noted that Kim Jong Il's feats remain in the hearts of the Korean people and the world progressives.

The DPRK succeeded in the third underground nuclear test in the wake of the launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 under the wise leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un, fully demonstrating the country's scientific and technological development and its powerful self-reliant capabilities, the chairman stressed.
