Appeal To The Progressive People of the World
We are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Workers Party of Korea, the vanguard force in the cause of humanity for independence, which organises and guides the Korean people to one victory after another.
Availing themselves of this opportunity, the Korean people and the progressive peoples of the world look back with most fervent feeling of reverence on the immortal exploits performed by his Excellences Kim IL Sung and Kim Jong IL who led Songun Korea and the cause of humanity for independence to victory and glory.
President Kim IL Sung who braved through the sanguinary path for scores of years and created the world model of national liberation and human emancipation, and his Excellency Kim Jong IL who was born in Mt. Paektu and devoted his whole life to Songun revolution for happiness and prosperity of the people are highly praised by all people throughout the world as the sun of humanity, as the peerlessly great persons born of Mt Paektu.
Therefore, in February 2002 the prominent figures from different countries of the world had the gathering for greeting the sun of the 21st century on Mt. Paketu and solemnly declared that they would conduct dynamic political and cultural activities in praise of the peerlessly great persons and regularly visit the holy place of the sun every five years.
It is the unanimous desire and will of all progressive peoples of the world to celebrate as the most auspicious event common to humanity the significant year 2017, which marks the 105th birthday of his Excellency President Kim IL Sung, the 75th birthday of his Excellency Kim Jong IL, and the 5th anniversary of the election of his Excellency Kim Jong Un, another great person born of Mt Paketu, to the supreme leadership of Korea.
We, the representatives of different national preparatory committees for the celebration of the 70th anniversaries of the founding of the Workers Party of Korea and the liberation of Korea and the organisations for friendship and solidarity with the Korean people, and other socio-political activists have gathered here to discuss on the organisation of a grand meeting in the significant year 2017 in praise of the great persons born of Mt. Paketu and make the following appeal to all progressive peoples of the world.
First, let us look up and highly praise the peerlessly great persons who opened up the new era of independence and wisely led the sacred cause for freedom and happiness of people, for peace and prosperity of humanity.

Paketu who illuminated the road to the building of a new independent world and devoted their all for happiness and prosperity of the country, nation and the entire humanity are recorded in golden letters in history, and are remembered forever by all progressive peoples of the world.
Let us uphold excellence’s Kim IL Sung, Kim Jong IL and Kim Jong Un as the sun of humanity, as the sun of Songun and add eternal brilliance to their great ideas and exploits!

Second, let us further promote friendship and cooperation with the DPR Korea and extend strong support to and solidarity with the Korean people in their just cause.
Everybody admires the reality of Korea where the genuine policies of love and respect for people are pursued and all people enjoy worthwhile on an equal footing. All the fascinating monumental edifices which have been erected in all parts of the country on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Workers Party of Korea clearly shows the true picture of the people-centred socialism Korea style.

Third, let us meet together on sacred Mt Paketu in the significant year 2017 to highly praise the peerlessly great persons and accelerate the advance towards the victory in the cause of humanity for independence.
As the Korean people are led by his Excellency Kim Jong Un, their just cause guided by his Excellency’s Kim IL Sung and Kim Jong IL is sure to emerge victorious and the DPR Korea will shed brighter light all over the world as the country of the sun, as the powerful Paketusan nation.
Let us entrust the bright future of humanity to the respected His Excellency Kim Jong Un who brilliantly carries forward the cause of the sun, and make more dynamics efforts to bring earlier the global independence!
