History of the Great Leader Continues-speech submitted by the DPRK Embassy to the meeting of the Juche Idea Study Group of England of 6th of April



 History of the Great Leader Continues

Worldwide, a number of personages left their names in history for their exploits, noble virtues and excellent mode of politics. After their death, however, their aims and exploits were almost forgotten; few of them enjoy as much respect as they did in their lifetime. However laudable, their achievements are remembered merely as a historical story after they died. To put it briefly, memories of a famous person fade away with the passage of time.

But this is not the case with President Kim Il Sung.

In the first half of the 20th century, when Korea was a colony of Japan, he waged a long, bloody struggle to win back its national sovereignty. After the country’s liberation on August 15, 1945, he founded the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and developed it into a genuine people’s country and independent power.

He was a world-renowned statesman who rendered both material and moral support to third-world countries in building new society and made a great contribution to the struggles for independence including the non-aligned movement.
He passed away on July 8, 1994, but his history still continues.
The Juche idea authored by him and his theories are still applied by the DPRK in its building and activities; his books are read by all the citizens.
His life-long motto was affection for the people and the spirit of independence.
Believing in the people as in heaven, he devoted his all to their wellbeing till the last moment of his life.
By adhering to the principle of independence in the building of the state and its activities, he repudiated dominationism and rendered an immortal contribution to building an independent, new world.
Today the DPRK does everything as intended by the President. The people-first principle is the state’s political ideal; the country maintains the principles of independence in politics, self-sufficiency in the economy and self-reliance in national defence.
He is held in high esteem as the eternal leader and benevolent father of the Korean people.
Mosaic murals depicting the smiling leader and the towers dedicated to his immortality are seen all over the country.
With boundless yearning for him, all the people visit his statues and murals on his birthday and other significant occasions.
They love singing songs in praise of him and telling stories about his devotion to the country.
Measures have been taken for handing down his exploits to posterity and preserving all the places associated with his activities to be used for the purpose of recollecting and learning from him.
In recognition of his outstanding contribution to the political history of the world and of his internationalist activities, orders and medals have been conferred on him by many countries even after his death. Also, the April Spring Friendship Art Festival is held on a large scale on the occasion of his birthday, attended by artistes from around the world.

Severe Punishment by Fellow Countrymen Is Inevitable: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, April 30 (KCNA) -- The international community expresses full support and approval at the DPRK's principled stand on the inter-Korean relations and DPRK-U.S. relations clarified at the historic First Session of the 14th Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un's policy speech is a historic declaration for tackling the present grave situation affected by the moves of the U.S. and south Korean conservative forces in keeping with the unanimous aspirations and wishes of all the fellow countrymen, and herein lies the key to creating a new national history for peace and co-prosperity.

Now the whole nation strongly hopes that the north-south declarations are invariably adhered to true to the historic policy speech so that the situation of the Korean peninsula develops in a stable manner and the inter-Korean relations steadily improves.

Nevertheless, the south Korean conservative forces are intent on silly acts making a mess of the nation's destiny and future, contrary to the compatriots' aspirations and the international community's expectations.

The "Liberal Korea Party" is engrossed in launching a blistering attack on the present "government" citing the "failure of north Korea policy" and "replacement of diplomacy and security team", while dismissing the DPRK's principled stand as a "notification" to inflame only the confrontation with the fellow countrymen.

The "Parun Mirae Party", the conservative media and other conservative forces - would-be "experts on the north" - call for thorough cooperation with the U.S., voicing that the present regime faces a moment of choice and should make a right decision.

Those foolish acts against reunification, peace and nation by the LKP and other conservative group of traitors which seek to put a brake on the implementation of the north-south declarations and improvement of inter-Korean relations will not be spared the severe punishment by all the compatriots.

The conservative group of traitors has taken the lead in doing jobs not beneficial but harmful to the nation since it came into being.

Not content with denying the last year's valuable successes that the north and south achieved after declaring the start of a new journey, the conservative forces are struggling to reverse the inter-Korean relations to the past, spouting a load of abuses that "last year was a miserable year in which 10 years of security posture was severely hindered in return for enjoying a brief peacetime spanning one year".

A crow cannot be whiter for often washing.

As long as the LKP and other conservative forces, traitors and depraved guys who lost even national conscience and the dignity of a human being are left intact, the misfortune, pain, damage and disaster which the Korean nation is subject to will get more terrible and drawn-out.

All the fellow countrymen in the north, the south and abroad will, staking the destiny and future of the nation, get rid of the anti-reunification traitors, who run counter to the historic current towards the improved inter-Korean ties and peaceful reunification, once and for all. -0-

KCNA Commentary Terms U.S.-S. Korea Joint Military Exercises Aggressive, Not Defensive

Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and the south Korean authorities keep pushing the situation of the Korean peninsula and the region to an undesirable phase, defying public criticism and opposition at home and abroad.

As known, the U.S. and the south Korean military war-like forces mull staging Alliance 19-2 exercises to replace Ulji Freedom Guardian in coming August, not content with holding Alliance 19-1 that replaced Key Resolve exercises in March.

This is a crude violation of the agreement reached at the historic north-south summit and the DPRK-U.S. summit and a provocative act to chill the hard-won atmosphere of peace on the Korean peninsula.

At the historic Singapore DPRK-U.S. summit the U.S. officially stated and declared before the world that it would suspend the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises which are regarded as a provocation by the DPRK during the period when the DPRK-U.S. dialogue is under way.

The south Korean authorities also welcomed it and committed themselves to positively taking practical measures for lasting and durable peace at several contacts with the DPRK.

But those perfidious forces in the U.S. and south Korea backtracked on the commitment they made with the DPRK and are justifying their offending project while touting "cut-down" in the size of the exercises and terming it "defensive".

This can not but be viewed as an intolerable mockery and insult to the desire and wish of the public for peace on the Korean peninsula.

Those forces are mistaken if they think they can conceal the provocative and aggressive nature of the exercises by changing the codename of the exercises and cutting down their size.

It is a unanimous view of the international community that despite the reduction in size, the U.S. and south Korea will get further braced up in the military aspect.

This is proven by the announcement by the U.S. Department of Defence that "the military preparedness will be kept as usual despite the adjustment of the large-scale combined military exercises" and the statement by the south Korean military authorities that "size is not important and the programme of the exercises will be further substantiated as the exercises will be based on computer simulation".

Moreover, Alliance 19-2 exercises envisages an attack drill meant "rebuff" and the south Korean military plans to reflect the expansion of armed forces deployment to the whole areas of the northern half of Korea in its "future ground force redeployment plan". This betrays the warlike forces' intention to stifle the DPRK.

The situation clearly proves that the joint military exercises constitute an aggression war, not for defence, and an unpardonable act of hostility toward the DPRK, the dialogue partner.

We are closely following the double-sided acts of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities getting intent on making the case for discord behind the scene, despite their lip-service for "peace" and "dialogue".

The U.S. and the south Korean authorities had better think twice, mindful that their thoughtless saber-rattling will bring miserable repentance and catastrophic results only. -0-

Implementation of North-South Declarations Called for

Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) -- The north, south and overseas sides Committees for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration released an appeal on Saturday on the lapse of one year since the publication of the Panmunjom declaration.
Noting the historic meeting between the top leaders of the north and the south and the adoption of the Panmunjom declaration one year ago at Panmunjom which had been a symbol of division and confrontation evoked great applause and joy among all Koreans and other peoples in the world, the appeal said the meeting and the adoption were great events which declared a new start of the north-south relations and ushered in a new era of peace, prosperity and independent reunification.
The All-Korean Committee for Implementation of June 15 Joint Declaration, calling on all the Koreans to tide over the present difficulties with the concerted efforts and take the lead in paving the path toward peace, prosperity and independent reunification, appealed as follows:
Let's invariably preserve and thoroughly implement the historic Panmunjom Declaration and the September Pyongyang Joint Declaration!
One can feel the breathing of the Korean nation filled with the ardent hope for national reunification from the Panmunjom Declaration and the September Pyongyang Joint Declaration. The declarations also reflect the soul of the Koreans with their hearts burning with a strong will to achieve reunification.
The declarations serve as the programme for reunification common to all Koreans, which reflect their long-cherished dream and ideal for reunification.
Let's show the world how successfully the Koreans pave a bright path toward national reunification by their own efforts by vigorously conducting a nation-wide campaign for implementing the declarations from April 27 to September 19, the "period of activities for implementing the Panmunjom Declaration and the September Pyongyang Joint Declaration."
Let's firmly preserve and embody the principle of independence, in which we, ourselves, responsibly shape the destiny of the nation!
The remarkable changes witnessed in the north-south relations in the wake of the publication of the Panmunjom Declaration proved that if the Korean nation takes such attitude as to play the master's role in developing the north-south relations out of an independent decision and with bold practice, nothing is impossible.
Let's strongly reject the stand of depending on outsiders, which runs counter to the principle of national independence that the Korean nation determines its destiny by itself, and become masters in ushering in an era of independent reunification!
Let's root out the cause of tensions on the Korean peninsula and positively preserve the atmosphere of the improvement of the north-south relations!
It is the unanimous desire and will of the 80 million Koreans to put an end to the military hostility between the north and the south and turn the Korean peninsula into a permanent and durable peace zone.
Let all Koreans at home and abroad turn out in the nation-wide onward march toward improvement of the north-south relations, peace and reunification for the sake of the destiny of the nation!
Let's fully demonstrate the power of the united Koreans under the banner of the north-south declarations!
The great national unity serves as the foundation and the power for peace, prosperity and reunification on the Korean peninsula.
The political parities, organizations and Koreans of various circles at home and abroad that are truly desirous of peace of the country and improvement of the north-south relations should get united firmly as one and hold higher the banner of the implementation of the north-south declarations.
The appeal pointed out that nothing can block the advance of the Koreans going toward a bright future with their unity as a powerful engine. -0

Chief of Pyongyang Mission of AINDF Vows to Struggle for Independent Reunification, Peace and Prosperity

Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) -- Pak Su Chol, chief of the Pyongyang mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front (AINDF), issued a statement on Saturday on the occasion of the first anniversary of publication of the historic Panmunjom Declaration.

The statement said that the last year's Panmunjom summit meeting and the publication of the April 27 Declaration were a great event worth a special record in the history of the nation as they declared the start of a new journey for national reunification.

The south Korean people eagerly want to see the atmosphere of reconciliation, unity and peace going on in this land and the south-north relations getting improved continuously through the thorough implementation of the historic south-north declarations, it noted.

But the south-north relations are not making progress as desired by the nation and unanimously expected by the international community, and the atmosphere of reconciliation, unity and peace can be chilled by the frost of confrontation and war again, it said.

The reality raises an urgent need to remove the spawn of the anachronistic arrogance and hostile policy of the U.S. which is making unilateral brigandish demand to throw artificial obstacles in the way of the improvement of inter-Korean relations, and to resolutely frustrate the reckless act of the conservative forces and military warmongers of south Korea, it stressed.

In the historic policy speech at the First Session of the 14th Supreme People's Assembly, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission Kim Jong Un clarified the principled stand to put the south-north relations and the struggle for national reunification on a higher level, it said.

It stressed that the AINDF will turn out as one together with the patriotic people of all strata into the struggle to invariably preserve and thoroughly implement the south-north declarations reflecting the general will of the nation, bearing in mind the firm belief that the dawn of independent reunification of the nation will surely come under the leadership of Kim Jong Un. -0-

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un's Exploits for Independent Reunification, Peace and Prosperity Hailed

Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) -- The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country of the DPRK Saturday issued a memorandum dealing with the exploits of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un in opening up a new era of peace, prosperity and reunification of the Korean peninsula on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Panmunjom north-south summit and the Panmunjom Declaration.

The memorandum said that Kim Jong Un unfolded a new chapter of the nation's history for reunification.

It went on:

In his New Year Address for Juche 107 (2018), he took the initiative of setting forth the courageous policy for a fundamental turn in the north-south ties for foiling the moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad and making a breakthrough toward independent reunification.

He clarified important guidelines for weathering the difficulties lying in the way of national reunification including the issue of defusing acute military tension and creating a peaceful environment on the Korean peninsula, the issue of actively creating the atmosphere for national reconciliation and reunification and the issue for the north and the south to hold high the banner of national independence.

On April 9 last year, he convened the session of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea in Pyongyang and clearly indicated the orientation towards the development of the north-south ties while mentioning the north-south summit meeting and talks to be opened at the "House of Peace" in the south side portion of Panmunjom.

Thanks to the outstanding leadership and patriotic bold decision of the peerlessly great man, there opened north-south summit meeting and talks in Panmunjom on April 27, 2018 at last and this was recorded as the third summit meeting and talks in the history of the north-south relations.

The Supreme Leader powerfully propelled independent reunification, peace and prosperity.

In order to give a steady continuity to the trend of the nation's history toward independent reunification, he made sure that the fourth north-south summit meeting and talks were held at the Thongil House in Panmunjom on May 26, 2018.

High-level talks, Red Cross talks and inter-sector technical talks in various fields including sports, railways and roads were held for the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration and military talks and contacts were activated for the mitigation of military tension and the removal of the danger of war.

In this period, the Supreme Leader provided DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks, the first of their kinds in history, and made sure that the DPRK-U.S. joint statement was adopted to powerfully propel the trend towards peace and prosperity of the Korean peninsula.

He provided the fifth north-south summit meeting and talks in Pyongyang on September 18, 2018, in order to further speed up the development of the north-south ties and bring about rich autumn of peace, prosperity and reunification on the Korean peninsula.

The historic September Pyongyang meeting and talks between the top leaders of the north and the south offered an epochal turn in further consolidating the valuable achievements made by the north and the south hand in hand and accelerating the north-south ties along the new orbit of peace, the orbit of reconciliation and cooperation.

The Supreme Leader provided a treasured sword for braving the tempest of history.

The three north-south summit meetings and talks and the adoption of the north-south declarations last year marked an event of weighty significance in national history as they reversed the grave situation which was inching close to a war and declared the start of a new journey toward national reunification.

But, the anti-reunification forces in south Korea have gone desperate to turn the north-south ties to those of discord and confrontation while caviling at the north-south declarations, in defiance of the desire of the fellow countrymen and the unanimous expectation of the international community.

The U.S. is employing every possible means and method to subordinate the north-south ties to its policy of sanctions and pressure upon the DPRK, while openly pressurizing the south Korean authorities.

In his policy speech at the First Session of the 14th Supreme People's Assembly, the Supreme Leader underlined the need to take proper stand and attitude of invariably maintaining and thoroughly implementing the north-south declarations reflecting the unanimous will of the entire nation whatever difficulties and obstacles, and gave perfect answers to the principled and realistic problems for the implementation of the north-south declarations, including the issue of putting an end to submission to big countries and policy of dependence on outsiders, the issue of subordinating everything to the improvement of inter-Korean relations, the issue for all the Koreans in the north and south and abroad to resolutely foil the moves of the U.S. and the south Korean conservative forces challenging the trend of history toward the improvement of the north-south ties and peace and reunification.

Now the entire nation is fully supporting and hailing the fundamental principle and stand on national reunification clarified by the Supreme Leader in his policy speech, saying that they are immortal reunification programme which can be set forth only by the peerless patriot and outstanding great man possessed of warm love for the country and nation and unusual wisdom.

We will conveyed down through generations the undying feats and great benevolence of the Supreme Leader who provided a fundamental turn for the development of the north-south ties for national reunification and happiness of posterity to come and who is ushering in a new history of independent reunification, peace and prosperity, said the memorandum. -0-
