The WPK is a revolutionary party firmly based on the leader's ideological system and leadership system, a mother party serving the people after forming harmonious whole with them and an invincible party having a strong political and military groundwork. This is the true picture of the WPK that has grown strong under his leadership.
All service personnel and people have grown strong in thinking and faith thanks to the dynamic ideological and political work of the WPK and the single-minded unity of the whole party and army and all people around the headquarters of the revolution has grown as firm as a rock and this resulted in the emergence of a powerful driving force of the revolution.
The WPK's Songun politics helped ensure peace on the Korean Peninsula, usher in a new phase of the movement for national reunification advancing in the idea of "By our nation itself", boost the international solidarity with the Korean revolution and remarkably promote the country's relations with other countries.
His idea and cause of the Juche-oriented party building have been carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un at a new higher level.
Kim Jong Un formulated Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism as the eternal guiding idea for the party and revolution through his brilliant ideological and theoretical activities and proclaimed the modeling of the whole society on it as the supreme programme of the party. This is the great achievement that provides a sure guarantee for the development of the WPK and the final accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche.
The reporter called on all party members, service personnel and people to consolidate the party shining with the august names of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and steadily increase its leadership role and thus accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche under the leadership of Kim Jong Un.
Immensely rosy is the future of the Korean revolution as it is dynamically advancing, flying the flag of the Juche-oriented party led by Kim Jong Un generation after generation, holding Kim Jong Il in high esteem as eternal general secretary of the WPK, concluded the reporter.
