Indian Public Figure Praises Korean People for Advancing under Banner of Socialism
Pyongyang, June 12 (KCNA) -- The Korean people are advancing under the uplifted banner of socialism despite the imperialists' vicious moves to stifle the DPRK.

Suneet Chopra, secretary general of the All India Indo-Korean Friendship Association, said this in a speech made at an inaugural ceremony of the Indian national preparatory committee for the 2017 Meeting Praising Great Persons of Mt. Paektu held in New Delhi on June 7.

The year 2017 will be a significant year which will mark the 105th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung, 75th birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il and the 5th anniversary of Marshal Kim Jong Un's election to the top posts of the party and state of the DPRK, the sectary general noted, and went on:

The Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) was successfully held recently.

Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Korean people, led to victory the 70-day campaign for successfully greeting the Seventh Congress of the WPK.

It is our bounden duty to support the Korean people in their just struggle for building a socialist power and achieving the independent and peaceful reunification of the country.
