Respected KFA President comrade Alejandro Cao De Benos
Representatives of the DPRK Embassy Spain,
KFA delegates , officials and activists
Comrades and friends

It is a great honour to be here to address the 17th KFA International Meeting which is being held here in Tarragona the place where the KFA was founded 17 years ago and where the excellent Pyongyang cafe and HQ of the KFA is situated . It is also great to attend the KFA International Meeting which is presided by our KFA President comrade Alejandro Cao De Benos.
This year has seen the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG , the 75th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade
KIM JONG IL and the 5th anniversary of the election of dear respected Marshal
KIM JONG UN as the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea . UK KFA is pleased to have formed the UK Preparatory Committee and to have participated in the 5th International Festival in praise of the Great Persons of Mt Paektu. During our visit we saw a happy people in a strong and prosperous country .Travelling to different parts of the DPRK by road we saw lush fields of crops . The imperialists had been making propaganda that the DPRK was affected by drought and that there would even be massive famine. However during our visit it rained several times and we were told that the effects of the drought had been overcome. People in the DPRK were not bowed or intimidated by the US imperialist threats . They were going about their business quite normally and calmly . Indeed when I attended the Karoake and dinner on the last night the idea of war seemed quite surreal and far off. However the Korean people have a heightened anti-US,anti-imperialist spirit. Two days before we arrived there was a massive rally against the UNSC sanctions. New anti-US posters have gone up in the streets of Pyongyang .

This year has seen dramatic developments in People's Korea which have shaken US and world imperialism rigid namely another successful H bomb test on the 3rd of September and the successful test fire of the Hwasong-14 ICBM .
At 1200 Korean Standard time on the 3rd of September in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea a truly momentous and earth shattering event took place , namely the 6th DPRK nuclear test . However this was no ordinary nuclear test, it was a really game changer. It was the test of a H bomb for an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile . Western experts estimated the yield to be 120 kilotons and set off a tremor of 6.1 magnitude . The test was said to be 7 times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in August 1945 . The DPRK has the capability to wipe out big cities in the USA and basically end the corrupt and decadent Yankee empire.
Sunday 3rd of September would have normally been a quiet Sunday for the imperialist bosses , a day of eating toast with marmalade , lazily reading the Sunday newspapers and walking dogs but this Sunday was to be fundamentally different.
The chiefs of US imperialism and world imperialism had already been well and truly rattled by the DPRK's test fire of an intermediate range ballistic missile on the 29th of August which passed over the land of the Japanese imperialists causing panic. Now on Sunday 3rd of September the DPRK raced across the nuclear finishing line to become an advanced socialist nuclear power of Juche and an ICBM power . Many had wanted to stop People's Korea from reaching the finishing line .Chief amongst these was US imperialism, the chieftain of world reaction , the biggest international exploiter , shameless aggressor and strangler of national independence and national liberation . The fascistic leader of US imperialism , the self-styled fuhrer of the American 4th Reich and mentally ill dotard , Trump, had declared that he would never allow the DPRK to have a nuclear ICBM that could hit the US mainland . Along with the US imperialists were its so-called allies or more accurately, puppets , toadies and vassals namely the south Korean fascist puppets , Japan , as well as countries such as Britain . Added to this already full list you had the big power chauvinists such as China and Russia that did not want the DPRK to have its own powerful defences and wanted a weak DPRK that they could control ,exploit and dominate. The revisionist Chinese leadership which sold out to US imperialism a long time ago , opposed the DPRK nuclear programme .Lastly , you had various corrupt and rotting neo-.colonies of imperialism in various parts of the globe that raised their hands in the UN Security Council because either they were so hopelessly dependent on the US or were jealous of the DPRK building a strong defence power they could never dream of in a million years.
What the successful H bomb test on the 3rd of September proves and the two tests of the Hwasong 14 on July 4th and July 28th prove is the vitality and correctness of the Juche Idea , the Songun Idea and the line of developing the nuclear force and the economy in parallel. Basically Juche is not just a theory but works in practice as the DPRK has been able to advance towards the goal of being an advanced nuclear and ICBM power and at the same time improve living standards for the people and build many new buildings such as Ryomyong Street which we saw in April and August this year. The DPRK's nuclear deterrent has been created despite many years of sanctions and blockades by the US imperialists, thus the DPRK's nukes are truly Juche nukes , the proud creations of the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.
Now People's Korea is facing all kinds of threats from US imperialism. At the UN General Assembly the maniac Trump in September talked about destroying People's Korea , basically carrying out the genocide of 25 million people. Many times now nuclear bombers have flown the length of Korea threatening the DPRK . On top of these threats there are sanctions being imposed on just about everything by the US, their puppets the UNSC , the EU and those miserable sell-out states the Russian Federation and China.
The Korean Friendship Association with over 17,000 members is the sword and shield of People' Korea. We must expand our activity to defend People's Korea and inform the wider public of the truth about People's Korea. We must defend and explain the Juche Idea , the Songun Idea and the self-development first idea to the popular masses .
We are sure that this great meeting of KFA will be a massive success and its deliberations will strengthen the work of KFA many times over !
