Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- There took place a national meeting on Sunday at the April 25 House of Culture to mark the 54th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's start of the Songun revolutionary leadership.

Present at the meeting were Kim Yong Nam, Pak Pong Ju, Ri Yong Gil, Hyon Yong Chol and other senior officials of the party, state and army, chairperson of a friendly party, officials of the party, armed forces and power organs, social organizations, ministries and national institutions, service personnel of the Korean People's Army and the Korean People's Internal Security Forces, officials of institutions and industrial establishments in Pyongyang, labor innovators and Pyongyangites.

KPA General Ri Yong Gil, alternate member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and chief of the General Staff of the KPA, made a report.

Kim Jong Il's inspection of the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the KPA on August 25, Juche 49 (1960) marked an historic event heralding the fresh start of the WPK's Songun revolutionary leadership, the reporter said, and went on:

Kim Jong Il clarified the philosophy on arms that the revolution is pioneered, advances and is accomplished by dint of arms and the principle of Songun that the army precisely means the party, state and people. He also formulated the Songun politics as the most powerful, main political mode under socialism in the present era.

The Songun revolutionary idea of the WPK the validity and the scientific accuracy of which were clearly proved in the rigorous and arduous struggle is fully displaying its attraction and vitality as the days go by. It is also shedding its rays before the whole world as the encyclopedic Songun revolutionary idea giving perfect answers to all the theoretic and practical issues required by the era and the revolution.

The reporter underlined the need to thoroughly establish the unitary commanding system of respected Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un within the whole army, make it politically, ideologically and morally stronger and firmly train all its service personnel to be a-match-for-a-hundred fighters and Mt. Paektu tiger-like ones with Kim Il Sung's and Kim Jong Il's military strategies and tactics, heroic fighting spirit and perfect ability for fighting a real war.

He went on:

The People's Army should always take the lead in achieving the great army-people unity and displaying the might of army-people coordinated operations and demonstrate its honor as the standard-bearer and shock brigade in carrying out the plan of the supreme commander for building a thriving socialist nation.

Those in the field of national defence industry should produce quality Korean-style ultra-modern weapons and equipment at the best level to raise the level of modernization of the weapons and equipment of the People's Army, and further consolidate the all-people, nation-wide defence system to turn the whole country into an impregnable fortress.

All the officials, party members and other people should regard their work sites as outposts for defending socialism and raise a stronger wind of the campaign for creating the new Korean speed by learning from the fighting spirit and creative work style displayed by the People's Army, thus foiling the moves of the imperialists to isolate and stifle the DPRK and bringing about a radical turn in the building of an economic power.

If the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers finally ignite a nuclear war, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will make them bitterly realize what a true war is like and how miserable end those who are fond of playing with fire will meet, and accomplish without fail the historic cause of national reunification, the long-cherished desire of the Korean nation, by dint of arms of Mt. Paektu.

Immensely rosy is the future of the service personnel and people of the DPRK and the final victory is in store for them as the great Juche idea and the Songun revolutionary idea is clearly indicating the road to be followed by them and there is the outstanding and tested leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un, the reporter concluded.
