Important Days of DPRK Commemorated Abroad
Pyongyang, December 27 (KCNA) -- Events took place in various countries between Dec. 19 and 21 to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of demise of leader Kim Jong Il, 22nd anniversary of his assumption of supreme commandership of the Korean People's Army (KPA), 2nd anniversary of Marshal Kim Jong Un's assumption of the same post and the 96th birth anniversary of anti-Japanese war hero Kim Jong Suk.

They included meetings, book and photo exhibitions and film shows in Cuba, Sweden, Switzerland and Nigeria.

On display at the venues were photos documenting the Songun revolutionary leadership feats of President Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un.

Books and photos introducing the DPRK were also displayed there.

Present at the events were personages of various social strata and masses in relevant countries.

Members of the DPRK missions there were also present on invitation.

The first vice-chairman of the Cuban Committee for Supporting Korea's Reunification lauded the Songun revolutionary exploits of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and said:

Kim Jong Un, who inherited the ideas and natural character of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, is fully demonstrating the national power of the DPRK by foiling every move of the U.S. and its followers to stifle the DPRK.

The U.S. and its followers dare not provoke the DPRK as it turned into satellite manufacturer and launcher and a nuclear weapons state.

This is a brilliant fruition of the outstanding Songun revolutionary leadership of KPA Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un.

The chairman of the Sweden-Korea Friendship Committee hoped that the Korean people would register bigger successes in all fields, united close around Kim Jong Un.

The secretary general of the Switzerland-Korea Committee praised Kim Jong Suk for bringing up Kim Jong Il to be the successor to the Juche-oriented revolutionary cause and great leader.

Messages to Kim Jong Un were adopted at the events in Sweden and Switzerland.
