The Korean army and people are celebrating grandly the 105th anniversary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung in the stirring period when they are victoriously advancing socialism with the great spirit of self-reliance and self-development as the dynamic force.
President Kim Il Sung was a heaven-sent legendary leader, the father of the Korean nation and the eternal Sun of mankind, who pioneered the modern history of Korea and performed immortal exploits in carrying out the Korean revolution and the cause of global independence by dint of his outstanding ideology and leadership and noble virtue.
Korea, which had been reduced to the theatre of competition by the world powers for gaining their interests and thus subjected to ruin between the late 19th century and early 20th century, attained the present status of a socialist power that is independent, self-sufficient and self-reliant in defence, as it greeted the great national event, the birth of the President.
Marking the Day of the Sun, the President’s birthday, all the service personnel and people of the country are looking back upon the President’s great revolutionary career and immortal achievements, with boundless yearning and reverence for him.
Great President Kim Il Sung Life
