KPA Anniversary Marked by Foreign Media
Pyongyang, May 1 (KCNA) -- Indonesian and Nigerian newspapers carried articles to mark the 82nd anniversary of the Korean People's Army (KPA).

The Indonesian paper Suara Karya on April 22 said that the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK led by the Songun brilliant commanders defeated the U.S. and Japanese imperialism and have mercilessly smashed the repeated war moves of the U.S. imperialists after the Korean War and defended the security of the country and the gains of revolution.

Kim Jong Il, chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, directed primary efforts to strengthening the military power with Songun politics late in the last century when the political and military offensive of the imperialist allied forces focused on the DPRK after the collapse of socialism in East European countries, the paper said, and went on:

The KPA, therefore, has turned into the elite army matchless in the idea and faith and the invincible armed forces capable of defeating any aggressors at one stroke.

The ever-victorious history of the KPA making a long drive with the Songun revolution will be given a steady continuity.

On the same day the Nigerian paper Nigerian Observer dealt with the leadership exploits of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il associated with the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the KPA and brilliant feats performed by the service personnel of the division during the Fatherland Liberation War.

Meanwhile, an article introducing the proud course of victory and glory covered by the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK was posted by the Society for the Promotion of the Relations between Austria and the DPRK on its website on the same day.
