Kim Jong Un Receives Letter from Chongryon
Pyongyang, February 16 (KCNA) -- Marshal Kim Jong Un received a letter from the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on Sunday, the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il.

The letter said:

Kim Jong Il was a preeminent thinker and theoretician, outstanding leader and peerless elder statesman who defended and glorified socialist Korea by making total dedication all his life while leading the cause of Juche pioneered on Mt. Paektu along the road of victory with his profound ideology and theory and outstanding leadership.

He foiled every move of the imperialist and reactionary forces to stifle the DPRK under the uplifted banner of Songun and increased the invincible military capacity and strengthened the great army-people unity, thereby putting the dignity of the country and the nation on the highest level in the nation's history and providing a sure guarantee for successfully carrying forward to completion the cause of Juche.

He was a tender-hearted teacher who wisely led with his clairvoyant wisdom the Juche-oriented movement of Koreans in Japan and provided their happiness and bright future of the rising generations with fatherly love.

The struggle to bring about a fresh heyday of the movement of Koreans in Japan, true to his behests, has now entered the new, higher stage as it is guided by you, another great man of Mt. Paektu.

You indicated the path and strategic goal of the movement of the Koreans in Japan which has entered a new phase and clarified tasks and ways for its attainment.

We will uphold Kim Jong Il as the eternal sun, true to your intention, and further strengthen Chongryon, which was organized and demonstrated victories under the leadership of the great men of Mt. Paektu, as a model organization of the overseas Koreans movement.
