Filling with great pleasure and joy, the Korean nation marks the 70th anniversary of the Korea’s liberation. They extend the greatest glory and warmest greetings to President Kim Il Sung, the peerless patriot and national hero, who smashed the Japanese imperialists to restore the lost country.
President Kim Il Sung was spotlighted as a benefactor of national resurrection when the dark clouds of national ruin had hung heavily over the country.
In his teens, he set out on the road of revolution with a great ambition to liberate Korea. He founded the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army and crowned anti-Japanese war with victory.
He waged the anti-Japanese armed struggle for over 15 years without the state backing and the support of regular armed forces. The struggle was the most arduous and heroic, indeed.
President Kim Il Sung defeated the heavily-armed Japanese imperialists with the unique strategy and adroit guerrilla tactics.
Upholding President Kim Il Sung as the sun of the nation and the savior of national liberation, the Korean nation came out in the sacred struggle to liberate their country under his leadership.
His undying exploits of saving the Korean nation from the lot of colonial slaves and creating a model of national liberation struggle will go down in the history of Korea and the annals of the world’s revolutionary movements.
