Day of Shining Star Observed in Thailand, Nigeria
Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) -- There took place film shows in Thailand and Nigeria from Feb. 11 to 18 to mark the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il (Day of the Shining Star).

Participants of film shows watched Korean films including "The International Friendship Exhibition House".

The manager of the Universal Surveying Company of Thailand said after watching the film:

HE Kim Jong Il was born in the secret camp in Mt. Paektu and grew up, hearing the gun reports during the great anti-Japanese war as a lullaby, and nurtured wisdom and spirit as a brilliant commander beside the table for operational plans at the supreme command during the hard-fought Fatherland Liberation War.

He started his Songun revolutionary leadership by giving field guidance to the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the Korean People's Army on August 25, 1960.

He entered Kim Il Sung University and conducted energetic revolutionary activities with a far-reaching plan to glorify Korea before the world.

After watching the film, I came to know better about the greatness of HE Kim Jong Il.

Speakers at the film shows held in Nigeria praised Kim Jong Il for turning the DPRK into a politico-ideological power and military power by pursuing the original Songun politics, regarding children as the king of the country and showing deep loving care for them to bring them up.

They were convinced that the Korean people would successfully accomplish the revolutionary cause of Kim Jong Il under the leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
