- DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF KOREA
February 16 in the DPRK is a national holiday – the Birthday of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il.
Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and Chairman of the National
Defense Commission of the DPRK, Supreme Commander of the Korean
People's Army, Kim Jong Il has for more than 16 years stood at the
state helm of the country during perhaps the most difficult years of
the politically charged atmosphere of world politics.
years of the brutal half-century of economic blockade, permanent U.S.
provocations against the DPRK have not only not broken the heroic
revolutionary spirit and highest patriotism of the Koreans, who have
closely rallied around their beloved leader, but made them even
stronger and more unshakable in their dedication to the struggle with
the difficulties in solving the fundamental problem of the Korean
revolution - improving the welfare of the people, the desire by their
selfless work to quickly build their own prosperous socialist power of
a united nation.
the joint New Year editorial of the three major newspapers – of the
party, military and youth - the country's leader Kim Jong Il said: "We intend to build an economic power, ultimately, in order to achieve a steep rise in living standards. Only
with a noticeable improvement in living standards across the country
will sound even louder the cries "Long live socialism!", the song
"Ariran about power and prosperity", and will open the door to building
a prosperous powerful country.
The achievements in the DPRK in 2009 are very impressive and surprising. We have noted in our press as the most historic moment, that 2009 was a year of the birth of the DPRK as a world nuclear power, thus now fully protected by the peaceful labor of
Korean citizens from any military aggression from outside and their confidence in the future. Now, the DPRK (from the Statement by the DPRK Foreign Ministry of January 11, 2010) by equal right puts to the United States the question on
the willingness to revisit the issue of nuclear disarmament if the
United States agree to conclude a treaty of peace and if sanctions are
lifted against the DPRK. The DPRK rightly believes that signing
such a document would "eliminate the hostile relations between the two
countries and rapidly move towards the denuclearization of the Korean
on the issue of replacing the currently in force Armistice Agreement
with a full peace treaty, according to the DPRK, could be carried out
as a separate format, as well as within the six-party talks. As
highlighted in the Statement of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, the
resumption of the six-party talks will be possible only when the
sanctions are lifted against the People's Republic, which in Pyongyang
are called the "source of discrimination and mistrust."
the U.S. like before is still only interested in unilateral disarmament
of the DPRK (defense weakening of the DPRK) and therefore continues to
insist that the DPRK must first return to the six-party talks, which
the United States through its co-partners are again going to put
pressure on the DPRK and trying to use them to twist its arms. But such
methods of pressure on the DPRK have long passed ...
the spring of 2009, Kim Jong Il drew up ambitious plans and a vision –
by a new revolutionary upsurge, to create a situation of enthusiasm in
the Korean revolution and the construction of a mighty prosperous
state. He took the initiative to expand the 150 - and then the 100-day
labor watch, taking revolutionary measures to achieve victory at this
forced stage of the Korean revolution. In response to the call of their
leader, the people and the army showed great heroism and courage, so
that in 2009, a powerful leap forward was made in socialist
construction. 2009 was a year of great change in the development of the
economy, defense, construction of new powerful hydroelectric power
stations, gravity-fed irrigation canals, introduction of new
technologies and improved farming. In keeping with the modern
requirements of the twenty-first century, in the capital, Pyongyang ,
an indoor swimming pool has been built at the Kim Il Sung
University , a high-rise hotel Manchzhon put into operation along with
other monumental buildings for consumer services for the people.
Throughout have been erected monumental building constructions, such as
Nenvonskaya, Wonsan Hydro electric station "Youth", irrigation canals
on the Plain of Peace and a housing estate in Pyongyang on Mansudae
street . The construction of gasification facilities in Namhene have
been completed, which is a powerful surge in the modernization of the
leading industrial enterprises.
many parts of the country, complex food-processing facilities have been
built. In just a few months the Tedongansky horticultural state farm
had been built, as an example of the intensification and modernization
of horticulture, and in many counties new livestock and fish farms have
has achieved good results in the field of culture and the arts,
education and sports. Korean circus performers were awarded top prizes
(gold), the "Golden Lion Award". At international competitions, Korean
students and mathematicians have been remarkable. In June 2009, the
DPRK players won the right to participate in the World Cup games.
It is clear to anyone
that the DPRK's tremendous successes in all areas of economics,
politics, national defense, science, sport, culture and other aspects
of the state is inextricably linked to the tireless work of the Great
Leader, the implementation by the people of his grandiose plans of
Jong Il is consistently with the people and constantly on construction
sites, rural cooperatives, in military units, research institutes, with
figures of culture and art. Even in minus 30 degree centigrade frost,
Kim Jong Il inspects constructions of the century, is interested how
life is arranged by workers, and soldiers, welcomes innovation and
encourages them to enter into new heights in their work. The people
highly appreciate the enormous work of their Great Leader, his
closeness with the people and respond to his care of all of them by
ardent love towards him and boundless confidence, closely rallying
KIM JONG IL is a powerful inspiration inexhaustible force the DPRK people and all of his victories.
only in 2009, but every year in the DPRK - is a real battle on the

years since the proposals towards the creation of the Democratic
Confederal Republic of Koryo. There is much hard work to be done
towards achieving national reunification, cooperation and cohesion
across the nation. 2010 should be a year to create a new situation in
the cause of independent national reunification.
In Korean-American relations, the

system of peace and the realization of denuclearization of the Korean

hydro electric power stations and much, much more. Particular
attention will be drawn to the development of light industry and
agriculture for a decisive breakthrough in improving the welfare of the
population (we remind readers that 80% of the territory of the DPRK is
not suitable for agricultural). The whole life of the country for the
coming period will be subject to a desire with dignity, for big
victories in all areas of life to meet the 100-anniversary of the birth
of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung (2012). And naturally, that the
most difficult work will be at the Workers' Party of Korea led by its
General Secretary Kim Jong Il as the main organizing, leading, guiding
