Day of Shining Star Observed by British Organizations
Pyongyang, February 14 (KCNA) -- The British Association for the Study of the Songun Policy and the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea released a joint statement on Feb. 8 to mark the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il (Day of the Shining Star).

Noting the Korean people and progressive humankind are significantly celebrating the birth anniversary of Kim Jong Il as the Day of the Shining Star, the statement said:

Kim Jong Il was the faithful successor to President Kim Il Sung, father of socialist Korea.

His work "On the Juche Idea" served as the banner powerfully encouraging the world people in their struggle for national independence and emancipation.

He, in his various works including "Socialism Is a Science", dealt a telling blow at the anti-socialist moves of the imperialists, modern revisionists and renegades of socialism.

He brought about a victory in the showdown with U.S. imperialism and turned the DPRK into a military power with nuclear deterrence and a socialist fortress by pursuing his original Songun politics.

He steered the Korean people's drive for building a thriving nation through his ceaseless field guidance.

We are recollecting with deep emotion his shining exploits on the occasion of the Day of the Shining Star.

The Korean people are dynamically advancing to accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche under the leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.

They will as ever invariably advance along the road of independence, Songun and socialism and surely win a final victory under the banner of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
