Anniversary of Start of Songun Leadership Celebrated

Pyongyang, August 16 (KCNA) -- Organizations of Costa Rica and Panama issued bulletins to commemorate the 50th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's start of Songun revolutionary leadership. Carried in the bulletins were pictures of the leader and contents praising his Songun politics.

The bulletin of the Costa Rican Institute for the Study of the Juche Idea in an article described
Kim Jong Il's Songun politics as a main factor that helps the DPRK, not a big country, defend its sovereignty and dignity and emerge victorious in the showdown with the U.S. styling itself the "only superpower" in the world.

It noted that Kim Jong Il saw to it that ideological education was intensified among servicepersons so that they could fully discharge their mission as defenders of the socialist country. He also firmly established the trait of giving priority to the military affairs throughout the whole society and perfected the work for putting all the people under arms and turning the whole country into a fortress on a higher level, it added.

The bulletin of the Circle of Studies for the Juche Idea in Panama said that Kim Jong Il has further cemented the single-minded unity of the whole society through his Songun leadership and brought about an eye-opening reality in which rapid progress is made to build a thriving nation.

A turning-point was made for Korea's reunification and the international position of the DPRK has been remarkably enhanced under his Songun leadership, the bulletin noted, stressing that many countries and international organizations and personages of political and social circles have extended full support to the DPRK government's stand and measures taken to cope with the imperialists' anti-DPRK moves.
