I appreciate for inviting me to the International Internet Seminar on KimilsungismKimjongilism organized by the International Institute of the Juche Idea on the occasion of the 109th anniversary of the birthday of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and regard it as a great honor to present my written statement.

In my statement I would like to mention about the outstanding political ability of Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the political method of the WPK and justness of the line and strategic and tactical policy set forth by the 8 th Congress of the WPK.

During five years since the 7th Congress of the WPK was held there were lots of unprecedented extreme hardships in front of Korean revolution, but the Korean people achieved great victories through steadfast and correct practical struggle being united in one mind around General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un.

At the 8th Congress of the WPK the success and experience achieved in building a powerful socialist nation for the last five years were analyzed and reviewed and on the base of it the new line and strategic and tactical policy have been put forward to bring about new era of leaps and upsurge of the Korean revolution.

The struggle line, strategic and tactical policies, tasks and ways set forth by the 8th Congress of the WPK clearly illuminated the way for the prosperous development of the DPRK and forever happiness of the Korean people, and to achieve fresh victory in the struggle at next stage, and run through with the content to resolutely break through the existing threats and challenges and bring about new leaps and advance by strengthening the might of the Korean people, the subjective force in every way.

The WPK opened the new era of self-development and self-prosperity holding high the banner of self-reliance throughout the whole period of leading the socialist Korea and this is the revolutionary stand consistently maintained by the WPK today too.

General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un analyzed the subjective and objective factors lying in the process of socialist construction and set forth correct direction, and tasks of struggle and practical measures to achieve fresh victory of the Korean 2 revolution at the 8th Congress of the WPK.

The socialist construction to build the ideal society of people is accompanied by the struggle to overcome numerous obstacles and difficulties.

The big problem is that trials and difficulties are severe, but what is more important is how to overcome such difficulties.

General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un clearly illuminated the sector tasks and ways to carry out the economic strategy, strategic tasks and ways to sustainably strengthen the national defence capability and the direction of struggle to open a broad way to self-development and self-prosperity by speeding up the development of science and technology.

All fighting policies set forth by General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un is a programmatic guideline to give full display to the advantages and might of the Koreanstyle socialism and bring about a fresh victory in all sectors of socialist construction.

Respected General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un stated that the main idea and main spirit of the 8th Congress of the WPK is to achieve a great fresh victory on all fronts by remarkably increasing t h e subjective force, the internal force in socialist construction.

In other words, its internal force must be readjusted and rearranged in a comprehensive way and, on the basis of it there must be made a frontal attack against all hardships to open up a road of new advance.

And he specially emphasized the whole party must keep deep in mind once again the ideals of “believe in people as in God”, “single-hearted unity” and “self-reliance” and bring about a fresh victory of the Korean-style socialism.

As General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un clearly elucidated the correct fighting direction and tasks to achieve greater victory of socialist cause in line with the demand of a new age of development of the Korean revolution, the DPRK will greet new leaps and upsurge on the road of overall development of socialism.

The historical reports made by General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un at the 8th Congress of the WPK greatly encourages the revolutionary people fighting for building socialism and realizing the world independence.

We, studying and spreading great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism express our boundless reverence and absolute support for General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un who illuminated the most scientific and revolutionary path o f the Korean revolution and the revolutionary people over the world.

We extend our strong support to the Korean people fighting to build a powerful 3 socialist nation and defend the country’s independence under the wise leadership of Comrade Kim Jong Un.

Availing myself of this opportunity, I sincerely wish General Secretary Comrade Kim Jong Un good health and greater success in his responsible work for achieving the bright future and prosperity of the Korean people.

Advance forward for socialism!
