Statement on Red Sun's Day

Statement on Red Sun's Day

Leader KIM JONG IL, Chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK and General Secretary of the Worker's Party of Korea.

Today we celebrate 98th anniversary of the birth of the great leader Comrade KIM IL SUNG. It was none other than the great leader who founded brilliant Juche idea and advanced the cause of socialism, anti-imperialist unity and independence like no other statesmen or revolutionary of his day. From a young age the great leader followed in the revolutionary footsteps of his ancestors and advanced the anti-Japanese revolution and origins of Songun and Juche ideas amongst the anti-Japanese guerrillas. The great leader is remembered for having had a correct mass line and conception on the role of armed struggle, building and shaping the Down-with-Imperialism-Union and and protracted armed struggle.

Later the great leader was to return to a liberated Korea, loved and venerated by the people just as he loved and venerated them. This peace and unity in the land was not to last for the US imperialists unleashed a most atrocious war committing crimes of immense brutality even worse than during the Great Fatherland Liberation War in Europe. It was during these decisive years that the great leader consolidated the unity of the people, inspiring and leading them to victory. The great leader was to become the hero and sun of the nation, always working for the liberation and unification of south Korea with the northern ancestorial brothers. He put forward an independent path of socialist development centered around the needs of mankind in keeping with the Juche idea, strengthened and modernized Korean national culture and aided liberation struggles around the world.

Even at socialism collapsed in other countries, the great leader stood firm beside Juche. Now years after his temporal demise, I salute you leader KIM JONG IL for following, systematizing and enriching the revolutionary path of the great leader and shaping the whole of Korea and the party around the Juche idea. It is my desire to always support and uphold Korea. Today I am truly happy for the Korean nation that I love so ever much. I only yearn for the victorious cause of unification and anti-imperialism.
