Kim Jong Il Lauded in Poland
Pyongyang, December 27 (KCNA) -- The Polish branch of the Korean Friendship Association made public a statement on Dec. 21 to mark the 22nd anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's assumption of supreme commandership of the Korean People's Army (KPA).

It said:

Dec. 24 this year is the 22nd anniversary of Kim Jong Il's assumption of supreme commandership of the KPA.

The progressives are significantly commemorating this significant day to remember the precious feats performed by Kim Jong Il in developing the KPA into a matchless army capable of defending the sovereignty and dignity of the country and global peace.

He was an outstanding strategist and brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu with matchless grit and iron will.

Under his leadership the DPRK turned into a nuclear weapons state and satellite manufacturer and launcher.

He protected the sovereignty and security of the DPRK and peace on the Korean Peninsula from the threat of the imperialists by pursuing Songun politics.

We pay high tribute to Kim Jong Il, who made tangible contributions to the global cause of socialism.
