The Congress is being held at a time when a new upsurge in socialist construction , the Mallima Speed , is being unfolded under the strong and dynamic leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who is working day and night for the revolution and construction, often giving on the spot guidance every second or third day . The Korean people are waging a successful 70 campaign . When our delegation recently visited People's Korea were saw construction going on everywhere and we saw agitation teams waving red flags. We also saw youth and students practising for the greeting on the successful 7th Congress on KIM IL SUNG square .Korea is one of the few countries in the world where you can say the red flag flying on street corners ! People's Korea and the WPK uphold the revolutionary red flag of socialism not only in word but in deed !
The congress is also being held at a time when the US imperialists and their vassals have embarked on an unprecedented multi-dimensional campaign to tifle and crush Korean style socialism . It is waging on a number of different fronts such as military pressure and intimidation's , sanctions (both unilateral US sanctions and UNSC ones) and the so-called "human rights " campaign . Nevertheless the Korean people led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN are determined that the 7th Congress of the WPK will be a Congress of victors.They are unbowed by the threats and intimidation of US imperialism .They have turned out in the great 70 day campaign to greet the Congress .Many great achievements have been made in the sphere of industry with increases inindustrial production.Recently the Paektusan Youth Hero Power Station has gone on line.
The congress will proudly review the successes of the Workers’ Party of Korea achieved in the revolution and construction under the wise guidance of the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL and unfold an ambitious blueprint for hastening final victory for Korea revolution under the leadership of Respected Marshal Comrade KIM JONG UN. The Seventh Party Congress will be a glorious meeting of victors as it will constitute a historic landmark in carrying out the cause of Korean revolution. The 7th Congress will continue the Juche revolution and Songun revolution, there will be no deviation or change or concession. Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is committed to the line of "independence , Songun and socialism " . The respected Marshal had pledged to carry out the behests of President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL. The Juche revolution and Songun revolution will be continued to a new higher level. There is no doubt that the 7th Congress will make a decisive turn in the struggle to build a thriving socialist country , achieve independent national reunification and to carry out the world revolution.
Some reactionaries , revisionists ,opportunists and bourgeois media pundits have slandered the 7th Congress of the WPK saying that there is a long gap between Congresses but this is due to the fact that WPK Congresses are of a different to those of other communist and workers' parties in that they are programmatic and strategic . A Congress is held when the tasks set down by the previous congress are fulfilled and there is the need to move on to the next stage of the revolution. Moreover a WPK Congress is a big undertaking involving over 3,000 delegates . All of society is mobilised for the Congress. It is not like a few dozen people meeting one weekend but an event that involves the whole people requiring great effort.
The world revolutionary people including the international communist movement have high expectations of the 7th Congress as the WPK in the invincible vanguard of the international communist movement. Throughout its history it has struggled against modern revisionism, factionalism, opportunism and flunkeyism. The roots of the WPK go back beyond the date of its foundation on October 10th 1945 to when the great leader President KIM IL SUNG founded the Down With Imperialism Union in 1926 with revolutionary young communists of the new generation. Since then the WPK has unceasingly struggled against imperialism,opportunism and class enemies.It has always opposed modern revisionism.It defeated several counter revolutionary factional cliques- the Pak Hon Yon clique in 1953,the August 1956 factionalists who were backed by big power chauvinists and revisionists and the 1967 factional incident. In December 2013 led by dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN the WPK and Korean people defeated the modern factional clique that was backed by the imperialists and the treacherous international revisionists and big power chauvinists . Thus the hopes of the imperialists for the restoration of capitalism in People's Korea were dashed completely. Now the WPK is proudly upholding the red banner of socialism and is waging a staunch anti-imperialist , anti US struggle. The eyes of the progressive and revolutionary people of the world will be on Pyongyang on the 6th of May,.There is no doubt that the 7th Congress of the WPK will make a great contribution to the world revolution and to the international communist movement.
Hail the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea !
LONG LIVE THE WORKERS' PARTY OF KOREA STEEL STRONG VANGUARD OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST MOVEMENT !
LONG LIVE DEAR RESPECTED MARSHAL KIM JONG UN !
