Pyongyang, February 21 (KCNA) -- Celebrations took place in different countries from Feb. 9 to 11 on the occasion of the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il (Day of the Shining Star). They included film shows in Peru, Indonesia and Romania and meeting, photo exhibition and film show in Iran.

The participants of the film shows watched "Glorious Birthplace of Kim Jong Il in Mt. Paektu", "Pyongyang Today" and other Korean films.

The curator of the Kim Jong Suk Library in Peru said that Kim Jong Il was the great leader of the Korean and world revolution as he dedicated his whole life to protecting the sovereignty and dignity of the nation and accomplishing the cause of global independence.

The president of the International Taekwon-Do Association in Iran praised Kim Jong Il as an outstanding statesman who turned the DPRK into a socialist power and made an undying contribution to the human cause of independence.

The manager of the Unido Azidharma Industrial Company of Indonesia said:

The film show offered an opportunity to know better about the undying feats Kim Jong Il performed in the work of the party, state and army affairs.

No leader authored so many precious works on socialist construction as Kim Jong Il did.

It was under his leadership that the DPRK could firmly protect its sovereignty and dignity from the U.S. threat of aggression and sanctions.
