Pyongyang, April 19 (KCNA) -- The organizing committee of the International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu issued a communiqué on April 11.
The communiqué said that the committee would further develop the festival into a grand international politico-cultural festival of the world's progressive peoples.
It went on:
For the immediate future, the Organizing Committee shall push ahead with the preparations to organize the 6th International Festival in Praise of the Great Persons of Mt. Paektu in Pyongyang and in the Mt. Paektu area in 2022, a year in which we mark the 110th birth anniversary of HE Kim Il Sung, the 80th birth anniversary of HE Kim Jong Il and the 10th anniversary of HE Kim Jong Un's assumption of the highest post of the Party and state of Korea.
The Organizing Committee shall widely organize and unfold the activities in support and defence of the Korean people in their struggle for just cause.
It shall condemn the most heinous sanctions and blockade schemes of the hostile forces against the DPRK, the bulwark and the banner of the anti-imperialist forces of independence, and champion Juche Korea. At the same time, it shall coordinate on a worldwide scale to widely organize the international solidarity movements in support of the Korean people in their struggle to frustrate moves of separatist forces at home and abroad and achieve the national reunification under the banner of national independence.
The Organizing Committee shall launch widespread campaigns to realize genuine international justice and build an independent world.
In joint efforts with different parties, organizations, international organizations across the world, and the world's progressive peoples aspiring to independence and justice, the Organizing Committee shall be in the vanguard of carrying on the struggle to denounce and reject the moves for aggression and war, and intervention in the domestic affairs of smaller countries perpetrated openly by the imperialist and dominationist forces under the pretext of "democracy" and "defending human rights", and to build an independent new world. -0-
