DPRK marks 23rd death an­niver­sary of Pres­i­dent Kim II Sung

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

July 8, 2017 marks the 23nd an­niver­sary of the death of Kim II Sung (1912-1994), eter­nal Pres­i­dent of the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea. On the oc­ca­sion of the day the Korean and other pro­gres­sive peo­ples of the world are look­ing back upon the life of Pres­i­dent Kim II Sung who ac­com­plished the undy­ing ex­ploits for the his­tory and hu­mankind with his out­stand­ing ide­ol­ogy and the­ory and revo­lu­tion­ary prac­tice.

Kim II Sung was born into a poor farmer’s fam­ily in Korea. He em­barked on the road of revo­lu­tion­ary strug­gle in his early teens, de­ter­mined to save the des­tiny of the coun­try and peo­ple. In the course of blaz­ing the trail of the rev­o­lu­tion he cre­ated the Juche idea and Songun idea, which he bril­liantly im­ple­mented in the whole pe­riod of his revo­lu­tion­ary ca­reer span­ning 70 years. The Juche idea and Songun idea proved their truth­ful­ness and vi­tal­ity to the full, thus be­com­ing the great guid­ing ideas in re­al­iz­ing in­de­pen­dence of the masses and the valu­able spir­i­tual wealth com­mon to mankind.

Pres­i­dent Kim Il Sung was an out­stand­ing leader who es­tab­lished the so­cial sys­tem cen­tered on the masses of the peo­ple in the DPRK and set an ex­am­ple in ac­com­plish­ing the cause of mankind for in­de­pen­dence. The Pres­i­dent per­formed great ex­ploits in re­al­iz­ing the cause of re­uni­fy­ing the di­vided Korea. He put for­ward fair and rea­son­able pro­pos­als for the coun­try’s re­uni­fi­ca­tion, such as the three prin­ci­ples of na­tional re­uni­fi­ca­tion, the pro­posal for found­ing a Demo­cratic Fed­eral Repub­lic of Ko­ryo, and the 10point pro­gram for the great unity of the whole na­tion. He also wisely led the re­uni­fi­ca­tion move­ment, thus ush­er­ing in a bright prospect for the Korean re­uni­fi­ca­tion.

The Pres­i­dent made great con­tri­bu­tion to the cause of mak­ing the world in­de­pen­dent.

By advancing the slo­gan, “Peo­ples of the world who ad­vo­cate in­de­pen­dence, unite!” he ren­dered sin­cere as­sis­tance to the na­tional lib­er­a­tion and in­de­pen­dent de­vel­op­ment of many coun­tries of the world and en­er­get­i­cally led that such pro­gres­sive move­ments of the world as so­cial­ist move­ment and non-aligned move­ment should hold fast to their ideals and prin­ci­ples. Kim II Sung was the in­car­na­tion of benev­o­lence. No one in the world val­ued peo­ple and loved them like him.

Kim II Sung was, in­deed, the most out­stand­ing leader, peer­lessly great per­son, and great saint of mankind, rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the 20th cen­tury. Though he passed away, his ide­ol­ogy and cause are be­ing car­ried for­ward bril­liantly. The Korean peo­ple pre­serve him in his life­time ap­pear­ance and hold him in high es­teem as the eter­nal Pres­i­dent of the DPRK. They keep the Juche idea and Songun idea he authored as their un­chang­ing guid­ing ideas, and cher­ish it as their un­shake­able faith and will to fol­low the road of in­de­pen­dence, road of Songun and road of so­cial­ism he pi­o­neered.

In the course of im­ple­ment­ing the lines and pro­pos­als of in­de­pen­dent re­uni­fi­ca­tion he had ad­vanced the June 15 re­uni­fi­ca­tion era un­der the ban­ner of By Our Na­tion It­self was brought about in the Korean penin­sula, thus open­ing a rad­i­cal phase in the Korean re­uni­fi­ca­tion move­ment. The DPRK, in its ef­forts to re­al­ize the cause of global in­de­pen­dence clar­i­fied by him, has greatly con­trib­uted to the world­wide so­cial­ist re­con­struc­tion move­ment and its new up­surge, and ac­com­plish­ment of the anti-im­pe­ri­al­ist in­de­pen­dent cause of the world.

Praise and ad­mi­ra­tion for the im­mor­tal ex­ploits of the Pres­i­dent and his no­ble per­son­al­ity are still ring­ing out among many peo­ple of the world.

The April Spring Friend­ship Art Fes­ti­val that had been held in grandeur in Py­ongyang in cel­e­bra­tion of his birth an­niver­sary has con­tin­ued even af­ter his death. Rec­ol­lec­tion and com­mem­o­ra­tive meet­ings, sem­i­nars, book and photo shows and other events are held in many coun­tries as an an­nual event on the oc­ca­sion of his birth and death an­niver­saries. In April 2012 in cel­e­bra­tion of the cen­te­nary of his birth the World Congress of the Juche Idea took place in Py­ongyang with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of ad­vo­cates of the Juche idea from many coun­tries. Even now lead­ers and per­son­ages of for­eign coun­tries award the Pres­i­dent hon­orary ti­tles, or­ders and medals, and gifts. Im­mor­tal are the ide­ol­ogy and cause of Pres­i­dent Kim Il Sung.
