War Museum in Pyongyang
Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) -- The Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum in the DPRK tells about the feats Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il performed in leading the war to victory and pursuing the Songun (military-first) policy.

The museum, located at the Pothong River bank in the capital city of Pyongyang, was remodeled into a monumental edifice last year, the 60th anniversary of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953), under the care of supreme leader Kim Jong Un. This reflects his deep respects to the war victors in the 1950s.

At the museum, Pak Pong Nyo, a war veteran, told KCNA:

I've visited the remodeled museum three times. The visit carries me back to the war period.

Here we, war veterans, recall with great honor Generalissimo Kim Il Sung's undying feats for the war victory as well as the days of victories won by the DPRK in the postwar period. And we express deep thanks to Marshal Kim Jong Un for the loving care he has shown for the war veterans.

In fact, Kim Jong Un initiated the reconstruction of the museum and gave on-site guidance to it on 18 occasions. He also offered his autograph "Respects to the Great Age" to be displayed at the sculpture "Victory".

According to a lecturer of the museum, it has been visited by nearly 800 000 people from home and abroad over the last one year.

The museum shows the visitors how the DPRK could win in the face-off with the U.S. in the 1950s and hardens their will to build a thriving socialist nation at the earliest date under the guidance of Kim Jong Un.
