Anniversary of Korea's Liberation Observed in Malaysia
Pyongyang, August 12 (KCNA) -- A seminar took place in Malaysia on Aug. 6 on the 71st anniversary of Korea's liberation.

The secretary general of the Malaysian preparatory committee for the 2017 Meeting Praising Great Persons of Mt. Paektu said:

I extend warm congratulations to the Korean people on the 71st anniversary of Korea's liberation.

On this day I pay high tribute to President Kim Il Sung, the eternal leader of the Korean people who liberated Korea from the Japanese imperialists' colonial rule.

The President who embarked upon the road of revolution in his teens founded the Korean People's Revolutionary Army and led the arduous anti-Japanese armed struggle to victory, achieving Korea's liberation.

Korea's liberation, an event to be specially recorded in history, marked an epochal occasion in carving out the destiny of the Korean people.

I wish the Korean people bigger successes in the building of a socialist power.
