Looking out of the bus window I saw green lush fields . Before our visit the imperialist media have propagandised about drought , "crop failure' , 'famine' and 'mass starvation ' etc but it looked like an abundant harvest to me . During the visit as on my 14 previous visits I saw no homeless people on the streets , no one begging , no drug addicts or alcoholics or gang violence . Some of the delegation pointed out that there are no lumpens in Pyongyang and that the DPRK is a very disciplined society "
He also spoke about the 73rd anniverary of the foundation of the Workers Party of Korea and the 92nd anniversary of the Down With Imperialism Union .

The Workers' Party of Korea has staunchly fought against modern revisionism , opportunism , flunkeyism ,dogmatism and factionalism .
The WPK upheld socialist principles in the 1990s when socialism was frustrated in number of countries due to the insidious moves of the imperialists and renegades.
The WPK has always maintained revolutionary and class principles, holding high the red flag of socialism even when others threw it dow
