Anniversary of Korea's Liberation Marked by British Organization
Pyongyang, August 18 (KCNA) -- The Korean Friendship Association UK issued a statement on Aug. 9 on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of Korea's liberation.

The statement said:

August 15 this year marks the 69th anniversary of Korea's liberation by the anti-Japanese armed struggle led by President Kim Il Sung.

The Japanese imperialists tried to deprive the Korean nation of its language and letters after occupying Korea by force of arms.

They also forced the Korean women into sexual slavery, plundered a great number of natural resources and committed indescribable inhuman crimes against the Korean people.

The President gave all units of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army an order of the general attack for the country's liberation on Aug. 9, 1945.

Korea was fully liberated from the military occupation by the Japanese imperialists.

Today the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is advancing dynamically while further strengthening its sovereignty under the leadership of HE Kim Jong Un.
