Recently the Central Committee of the KIYSL announced it would hold the 9th Congress of the
league on the 26th of August , in some 11days time.
This will be a highly significant event, indeed a momentous event that will be greeted with joy by the Korean people and the world progressive people . The 9th Congress is being held in the 70th
year of the KISYL
The KIM IL SUNG Socialist Youth League has traversed the proud road of the Juche orientated militant youth league . It was founded on the 17th of January 1946 as the Democratic Youth League of Korea and subsequently became the League of Socialist Working Youth in 1964 to reflect the realities of the new socialist Korea in which capitalism had been liquidated and young people had become socialist working youth. On the 50th anniversary of its of foundation in January 1996 the League of Socialist Working Youth became the KIM IL SUNG Socialist Youth League in order as a mark of respect for the great leader President KIM IL SUNG the eternal leader of the Korean revolution and father of the youth of Korea . The league entered a new phase of its development.
The KIM IL SUNG Socialist Youth League and its predecessors the DYL and LSWY have always opposed revisionism and factionalism , upholding the great Juche Idea and the wise teachings of the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL on youth.
The KISYL has always been the most reliable reserve force of the Workers Party of Korea and has ensured that the young people are the vanguard and shock brigade of socialist construction. Young
people have taken part in many heavy and difficult construction projects such as the Paektusan Youth
Hero Power Station . Young people have also taken part in the work of national defence.
Dear respected Chairman KIM JONG UN put forward the idea of youth power and in his speech " MAKING SELFLESS, DEVOTED EFFORTS FOR THE GOOD OF THE PEOPLE IS THE MODE OF EXISTENCE AND SOURCE OF INVINCIBLE MIGHT OF THE WORKERS’ PARTY OF KOREA identified youth as one of the three pillars of socialist Korea , along with the revolutionary army and the masses of people. Respected KIM JONG UN said " The source of the unique pride for the Workers' Party of Korea 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, our 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 entire Party has paid constant concern to educating young people and boldly tasked the youth league with large projects. Under the trust and affection of the Party that has put them forward as its young vanguard our young people have volunteered in every period of the revolution to serve at the posts for national defence and work in difficult and challenging sectors, and displayed their youthful wisdom and courage to the full"
We are sure that the 9th Congress of the KIM IL SUNG Socialist Youth League will spendidly put into effect dear respected Chairman KIM JONG UN's idea on youth . We heartily congatulate the
KISYL Central Committee and all member of the KISYL on the holding of the 9th Congress.
