Defending the nation through trips to forefront posts

South Koreans from various circles stint no words in praising Marshal Kim Jong Un who leads the campaign for defending the country to victory with his energetic Songun-based revolutionary leadership.

The south Koreans from all social standings showed their interests at the news of field tour of First Chairman Kim Jong Un, saying that he spares no effort to defend the country through his surprise trips to forefront posts of the KPA.

Experts in military affairs described that KPA Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un, who carried forward the lineage of Mt. Paektu, has led the work of the Party and state as well as the army from long ago, assisting Chairman Kim Jong Il. 

Kim Jong Un visited the commands of 169 and 3,870 units and 671 large combined unit in the wake of his first inspection of a tank unit and affirmed he will adhere to Songun politics, a permanent researcher of the "Our Society Institute" of south Korea wrote in his article.

What is conspicuous in his inspection is that he inspires the army and people through his unexpected inspection tours, experts on Korea commented and expressed their surprise that when he visited forefront posts of Mt. Osong situated in the central front he inspected a post on Kkachil Peak only 350 meters away from a post of the south Korean army, in spite of dissuasion of the commanding personnel.  

They described that Kim Jong Un’s recent inspection of the KPA units aimed at to examine the combat capacity such as training of live-shell firing, dropping and artillery strike is to increase actual war capacity of the units and, at the same time, a solemn warning to Washington and Seoul. 

KPA Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un guided a night training of the paratroops, a tactical drill of KPA Unit 323 and a flight training of KPA Air and Anti-Air Force without previous notice and it is unprecedented in the world that a supreme leader visits military drill ground to guide the course of training, the south Korean mass media said.

It made special mention of his inspection of KPA units situated in the biggest hotspot in the southwest front and forefront posts one after another and noted that it was unheard-of aggressive and daring inspection.

The south Korean papers including The Kyunghyang Daily News and Kookmin Ilbo carried photos of his inspection of the KPA units and posted articles on his inspection, drawing the attention of readers.

His frequent beaming smile when he was inspecting the KPA units implies the victorious conclusion in the face-off between Pyongyang and Washington, Yonhap News stressed.

By the wise leadership of Songun of Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un, who enforces the Songun politics of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, Uncle Sam would sign a paper of surrender, their knees bent. It reflected burning aspiration of a broad spectrum of south Koreans, a professor in Gwangju expressed his belief.

Kim Il Sung's Distinguished Leadership Ability Displayed in War

President Kim Il Sung strengthened the cohesion of the Workers' Party, army and people of Korea in every way during the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953).

He developed the WPK into an invincible party, the guiding force for victory in the war.

On October 21, Juche 39 (1950) he initiated forming WPK organizations in the Korean People's Army in order to fully prepare the soldiers politically and ideologically and further enhance the fighting capacity of the army with the party members as vanguard.

He strengthened the WPK in an organizational and ideological way by timely convening several plenary meetings of its Central Committee.

He also directed big efforts to rallying all the people around the WPK as one powerful political force.

On October 1, 1951, he advanced detailed tasks for intensifying the mass political work, through a decision of the Organizing Commission of the WPK Central Committee.

In line with the decision, the party organizations at all levels conducted political activities to introduce the WPK's policies among the people and instill them with confidence in sure victory.

Kim Il Sung guided writers and artistes to create many appealing literature and art works in order to encourage the people to win in the war.

He also paid deep attention to enhancing the role of the people's power bodies.

In February 1952 he delivered a speech "The Tasks and Role of the Local Organs of Power at the Present Stage" at a joint meeting of people's committee chairmen and leading Party officials of provinces, cities and counties. In the speech he clarified the character and features of the people's power and indicated tasks and ways for enhancing its function and role under the wartime conditions.

In the course of implementing the tasks, the revolutionary mass viewpoint was strictly established among the government officials and the function and role of people's power organs were enhanced.

During the war the President always found himself among servicepersons, guiding the army and people to victory in the war.

One day when the battle was going on on Height 1 211, he made a phone call to the commander of the KPA unit there. He told the commander that the officers should show deep care for the soldiers' living conditions, saying that all of them were most valuable and his comrades-in-arms.

He took measures to supply fruits to soldiers fighting in the front and provide them with recreation conditions.

There are also such touching stories about emergency measures he took to rescue some KPA soldiers from the enemy's encirclement and dispatch soldiers to save a serviceperson's child in the period of the temporary strategic retreat.

In the three-year war the President made field guidance tours of 1 056 units, extending more than 20 500 km.

Deeply moved by his ardent spirit of defending the homeland and deep love, the servicepersons and civilians courageously turned out in the fight for victory in the war.

Kim Il Sung, Ever-victorious Commander

Kim Il Sung, Ever-victorious Commander

President Kim Il Sung was an ever-victorious commander as well as an outstanding statesman, who won two wars against the Japanese and U.S. imperialists.

On June 25, 1950 the U.S. imperialists started a war against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The President convened an emergency meeting of the Cabinet that day, appealing to all the people to turn out in a war of justice to defend the independence of the country and freedom and honor of the nation.

He issued an order to launch an immediate and strong counterattack on the invaders.

The counterattack strategy envisaged frustration of the invaders' offensives in a short time and switchover to counteroffensive in all fronts.

In a little more than one month after the outbreak of war, the Korean People's Army (KPA) killed or captured 237 014 enemy troops, destroyed or captured 1 128 artillery guns, 387 tanks and armored vehicles and shot down or damaged 386 war planes, seizing more than 90 percent of south Korean areas inhabited with 92 percent of population.

At that time, the President successfully commanded an operation to liberate Taejon by employing an encirclement tactics.

As the KPA was in a temporary retreat, he gave an order on launching military actions behind the enemy lines at a powwow of the KPA Supreme Command on September 25, 1950.

In response to his order, KPA units fought battles in full scale in the enemy rear, laying big hurdles to their northward advance.

In the fourth-stage war, he instructed KPA units to switch over to warfare in positions, calling on the units to build tunnels to defend them from enemy's bombing.

The advantage of the tunnel tactics was vividly illustrated in fierce battles on Height 1 211.

The U.S. heavy bombardment could not give casualties to KPA soldiers in tunnels.

On December 29, 1950 Kim Il Sung directed all units of the KPA to organize aircraft-hunting teams to overpower enemy's warplanes. The aircraft-hunting teams shot down as many as 3 000 planes in less than two years.  

He also initiated organizing tank-hunting teams in all units on August 24, 1951.

The President saw to it that snipers' teams were organized throughout the units.

His Juche-based tactics resulted in victories in all battles in the Fatherland Liberation War.

At last the war ended in the DPRK's victory on July 27, 1953.

The victory paved a way to a setback of the U.S. forces for the first time in history.

The world people lauded him as an unheard-of hero and steersman of anti-imperialist struggle, who defeated the U.S. imperialists and troops from their 15 allies.

Later, the then commander-in-chief of the UN Forces, Clark, wrote that General Kim Il Sung's superb commandership led to the victory of the north Korean army.

Leading National Reunification Movement



President Kim Il Sung makes public 10-Point Program of the Great Unity
of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country

Leading National Reunification Movement

The Korean people's desire for national reunification ran higher as ever in the early 1990s.

But the south Korean authorities, indifferent to this desire, persistently insisted on the "unification under the liberal democratic system", inspired by the U.S. moves against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

To cope with the situation, President Kim Il Sung put forward the Five-point Policy for National Reunification at the 1st Session of the 9th Supreme People's Assembly in May Juche 79 (1990).

The policy is:

First, tension on the Korean Peninsula must be eased and a peaceful climate for the country's reunification be created.

Secondly, the barrier of division must be removed and free travel and a full-scale open-door policy effected between the north and south.

Thirdly, the north and the south must develop their foreign relations on the principle of creating an international climate favorable for the independent, peaceful reunification of the country.

Fourthly, the north and south must develop the dialogue for national reunification.

Fifthly, a nationwide united front for the country's reunification must be formed.

The President published celebrated works including "Let Us Achieve the Great Unity of Our Nation" in August Juche 80 (1991), in which he underscored the need to attain national unity for reunification, indicating the tasks and ways to that effect.

On the initiatives of the north, an inaugural ceremony for pan-national rally and a starting ceremony for Paektu-Halla grand march took place on Mt. Paektu on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the country's liberation (August 15, 1990), followed by the 1st Pan-national Rally for the Peace and Reunification of Korea in Panmunjom with attendance of representatives from the north and the south and abroad.

Joint cheering was given for the Korean athletes in the 11th Asian Games and a unified team represented the north and the south in the 41st World Table Tennis Championship. There were also reunification-oriented football matches between the north and the south, pan-national reunification concert and reunification concert for bidding farewell to the year 1990.

There emerged the Pan-national Alliance for Korea's Reunification in November 1990 and the Pan-national Alliance of Youth and Students for Korea's Reunification in August 1992.

Meanwhile, the President proposed having north-south high-level talks.

Upon his proposal, the north and the south adopted an agreement on reconciliation, non-aggression, cooperation and exchange as well as a joint declaration on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, which came into effect at the 6th North-South High-level Talks held in Pyongyang in 1992.

In April Juche 82 (1993) the President worked out the "10-point Program of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country" and had it adopted at the 5th Session of the 9th Supreme People's Assembly.

And he proposed a north-south summit in order to put an end to the tragic history of national division spanning a half century and open the door to national reunification without fail.

Preliminary contacts for the summit took place in Panmunjom in June 1994, which yielded an agreement to hold it in Pyongyang on July 25-27.



He had discussions with officials about the summit on July 6 and examined a reunification-related document until midnight July 7, a day before his death, leaving an autograph "Kim Il Sung. July 7, 1994" on the document.
His exploits performed for achieving the country’s reunification will remain forever along with the history of the Korean nation.

Earnest Longing for Immortality of Great Persons

South Korean people highly revere President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il as the eternal sun of the Korean nation, feeling an irresistible yearning after them as the days go by. Their hearts are leaning towards the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun where they lie in state. 

“For the Korean nation, President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il were the source of the strength and valor and the whole of hope and future. Their benevolent images and sunny smile are just like the sun. The south Koreans would like to make their way to the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun where they lie in state,” a reunification champion in Seoul told his friends at the end of a gathering.

A photograph fan living in Chuncheon city showed photos of the President and the Chairman which his father had kept to his children and relatives and revealed his true feelings:

“President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il devoted their all to national reunification until their last breath. The world has not known such saints or great persons who worked heart and soul until the last moments of their life. Their exploits will remain forever along with the history of the nation.”
A south Korean floriculturist told his co-workers that the south Koreans’ profound reverence for the President and the Chairman are inclining to visit the sacred temple of the sun. He continued; the world has seen many prominent men, however, there are no great men such as President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il. If the country is reunified, I would make a flower basket with the most beautiful and fragrant flowers with my family and visit the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun to pay tribute to them.

A young men's association sponsored a meeting to mark the Day of the Sun (April 15).

The head of young men's association said in his opening speech:

“I am ardently yearning for President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who made painstaking efforts for national reunification and the south Korean people.

It is regrettable that we cannot visit the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun where they lie in state to pay homage to them.”

A resident in Seoul told his family that he was gripped by great emotion when he saw the north Korean people and foreigners made their way to the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun where the President and the Chairman are preserved in lifetime appearance to pay homage to them in humble reverence through TV

“President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il are alive in the hearts of the nation and humanity. When the country is reunified the south Koreans would visit the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun. The day is not far away.”

The feelings of the south Koreans, who are enshrining the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in their minds and looking back upon the great exploits of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, are ardent.
