To : the International Webinar on the Juche Idea

On the 109th anniversary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung the great man of the 20th century, it is a great pleasure for those who respect President Kim Il Sung and love the DPRK that the IIJI will hold the on-line international seminar on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.

President Kim Il Sung is the founder of modern Korea, who created the great Juche Idea and embodied it in the reality of DPRK, making Democratic Korea as a powerful country of political independence, economic and military self-reliance.

Today, under the leadership of Secretary General Kim Jong Un, the DPRK is highly holding the banner of the Juche Idea, protecting the country's sovereignty and dignity, and further highlighting its existence in the international community.

Many people, including social scientists, are interested in researching the Juche Idea, which is the main factor of the achievements of the Korea's liberation struggle and development projects, and the ideology for independence and justice in the present age.

We congratulate the organizers and the participants in the international webinar on the Juche Idea, considering that this event will be another opportunity to find a basis for peace and international coexistence between peoples.

This symposium is important during the global pandemic that requires openness and international cooperation for the benefit of people.

We hope that the important symposium will be successful.
