Day of Sun Celebrated by Koreans in Russia
Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- A meeting of Koreans in Russia was held by the United Confederation of Koreans in Russia on April 12 on the occasion of the birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung (Day of the Sun).

Present there were An Hyang Jin, vice-chairperson of the confederation, and other Koreans in Russia.

Displayed at the venue of the meeting were photos dealing with the revolutionary life of the President.

Also on display were photos and publications showing the development of the homeland.

The participants in the meeting laid bouquets before the full-length picture of Kim Il Sung standing together with leader Kim Jong Il and paid tribute to them.

Speeches were made there and those who visited the homeland gave their impressions of it.

Speakers said April 15 is the significant day when the new era opened in the history of the Korean people, adding there is Korea today thanks to this day.

The DPRK is demonstrating its might as a socialist country centred on the popular masses and a full-fledged independent state which launched satellites and had access to nuclear deterrence despite the harsh blockade of the imperialists, they noted.

Those visitors to the homeland said that they pictured to themselves a bright future of the country, while seeing for themselves the great changes brought about by Marshal Kim Jong Un for the happiness of the people as successor to the cause of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

They expressed their will to positively turn out in the struggle to bring earlier the day of national reunification true to the behests of the Generalissimos.
