Day of Shining Star Marked by Nepali Political Party
Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Nepal Worker-Peasant Party made public a statement on Feb. 16, the Day of the Shining Star (birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il).

The statement said:

February 16 marks the 73rd birth anniversary of Kim Jong Il, the great leader of the Korean people and outstanding leader of the world movement for socialism.

The DPRK is dignified as a great country thanks to the great leaders.

President Kim Il Sung led his people to liberate the country from the Japanese imperialists' military occupation and beat back the U.S. imperialists in the war and built a powerful independent and sovereign state in Korea.

It is attributable to the great, outstanding leaders that socialism in the DPRK advances by its own efforts and its people lead a worthy life.

Korean socialism founded and led by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il is now advancing vigorously under the outstanding leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.

The U.S. imperialists have stationed huge armed forces in south Korea and persistently resorted to economic sanctions and blockade and military threat against the DPRK.

However, the U.S. imperialists suffered setback and socialism in the DPRK has been safeguarded thanks to the great leaders.

The Nepalese people take this opportunity to extend warm congratulations to Kim Jong Un and the Korean people.

We vehemently denounce the U.S. imperialists' moves to stifle the DPRK and demand that they withdraw the hostile policy toward the DPRK at once.
