Day of Songun Marked in Switzerland
| Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- The Switzerland-Korea Committee and the Group for the Study of the Juche Idea of Switzerland jointly made public a statement on August 20 to mark the 53rd Day of Songun, when General Secretary Kim Jong Il started the Songun revolutionary leadership.
The statement said as follows:
On August 25, the Korean people will greet the 53rd significant anniversary when Generalissimo Kim Jong Il started the Songun revolutionary leadership.
This day is a historic day of the Songun revolution for socialist Korea.
Kim Jong Il inspected Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army on Aug. 25, 1960.
Kim Jong Il, peerless Songun commander, started the Songun revolutionary leadership for strengthening the military power of the country by inheriting the intention of President Kim Il Sung.
Progressives and anti-imperialist fighters of the world highly praise Kim Jong Il, who is identical to Kim Il Sung, as invincible and iron-willed commander.
With the Songun revolutionary leadership Kim Jong Il made the DPRK a world-level politico-ideological and military power.
Under his leadership the Korean People's Army resolutely shattered all the war moves on the part of the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces in the 1990s.
After the demise of Kim Jong Il the Korean people upheld Marshal Kim Jong Un as supreme leader of the party, state and army.
We believe that under the Songun politics of Kim Jong Un the DPRK, invincible fortress of socialism, will fully demonstrate its might.
