Great Leadership, Glorious Korea

Today the Korean people are celebrating significantly the 70th founding anniversary of their country.

President Kim Il Sung, who acquired a precious experience of building a people’s government in the flames of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle, laid solid foundations for building an independent and sovereign state after Korea’s liberation on August 15, 1945.

Based on these preparations, he proclaimed to the whole world the founding of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on September 9, Juche 37 (1948).

The founding of the DPRK signalled the birth of a new-type people’s government, the first of its kind in history, and an event of national significance which brought about a radical change in shaping the destiny of the Korean people and building a thriving country.

A Country of Independence

The seven-decades-long history of the DPRK has been adorned with proud struggle of its people who have created the history resplendent with victory and glory under the banner of independence.

The victory won by the two-year-old DPRK in the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953) added a brilliant page to the history of the Korean people’s struggle for defending its sovereignty.

A Country of Single-Hearted Unity

The DPRK is a country of single-hearted unity. Its single-hearted unity, the powerful propellant for building a thriving socialist country and the source of invincible might, was created during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle.

Young Korean communists held Kim Il Sung in the highest esteem as the sun of the Korean nation and closely rallied all the fellow countrymen behind him to achieve the historic cause of national liberation in August 1945.

A Country for the Sake of People

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a people’s paradise, as it administers people-oriented policies.

The Nigerian newspaper Nigerian Observer said that the DPRK is in the literal sense of the word a country which enforces various social policies for the sake of people, including free medical care and free education systems.
