On October 10, Juche 104(2015) the respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Party, state and army, made a historic speech at the military parade and public procession of Pyongyang citizens to celebrate the 70th anniversary of founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
In his speech Kim Jong Un said the lifeline of a revolutionary party, its strength and its bright future are dependent on attaching importance to the people, to the army and to young people and this is just the invaluable summing up of the 70-year history of the Party.
In the whole period of leading the revolution, the WPK used to call the people first, lend an ear to their opinions, though single, and draw unquenchable courage from their sincerity whenever it was trying to identify a course it must follow and whenever it faced grave trials.
As it has always regarded the masses of people as the root of its life and as the source of its inexhaustible strength and given top and absolute priority to their interests, our people have followed it believing it as the genuine guiding light of their destiny and as their mother, and a grand flower garden of single-minded unity has made its proud appearance on this land.
The might of the WPK which struggles for the people lies in the fact that it has powerful revolutionary armed forces.
Thanks to the Party’s original line of self-reliant defence and Songun politics, the People’s Army has been developed into an elite revolutionary army that is capable of defeating any aggressor forces at a stroke, and the all-people and all-country defence system consolidated steadily, with the result that the country has now turned into an impregnable fortress, into a world-class military power.
The source of the unique pride of the WPK is the large contingent of young people who have been trained to shoulder the future of the revolution and the nation.
Foreseeing the protracted nature of the revolution in the initial period of its founding, the Party set attaching importance to young people as its strategic line and has trained them into warriors for the implementation of the cause of the Juche revolution.
The historical course the WPK has traveled leading the Korean revolution to victory through thick and thin eloquently proves that there is nothing to be afraid of and there is nothing impossible if there are a people faithful to their party and a powerful revolutionary army and large contingent of young people.
Kim Jong Un in his speech pointed out that by continuing to hold fast to the three-point strategy of attaching importance to the people, to the army and to young people as its foremost weapon, the WPK will advance forward vigorously towards final victory and accomplish the Korean revolution.
Upholding the three-point strategy of the Party set forth by Marshal Kim Jong Un, the Korean army and people will surely build a thriving state on this land.
