On that day, the great Comrade Kim Jong Il suddenly and suddenly left us, who devoted himself all his life to the struggle for the victory of the Juche revolutionary cause, developing indefatigable and energetic activity in the name of the prosperity of the socialist motherland, in the name of the happiness of the people, the reunification of Korea and the independence of all countries of the world.

Progressive people will forever remember the great Comrade Kim Jong Il as the great Paektusan Leader, who until his last breath defended the gains of socialism in the most difficult years. Kim Jong Il is the guiding star of the 21st century, the brightest example of an internationalist patriot.

Dear comrades! As the Chairman of the DPRK ISG, I must note that the Comrade Kim Jong Il is especially significant for our organization, because initially the DPRK Solidarity Group was born exactly as a movement for those who wish to express gratitude to the Great Leader of the Korean people. Taking a look at the past, you understand how limitless the contribution of the great Commander is in almost all areas - from philosophy and art to the exact sciences. But we, as an organization, primarily a political one, above all value his contribution to the development of the Juche socialist theory, which brought the revolution to a new stage.

Comrade Dobrov noted that in the mid-90s the Korean people were going through a difficult period, but under the leadership of Kim Jong Il, the Koreans managed not only to preserve socialism, but to multiply its gains.

- The most important achievement of Kim Jong Il in the creation of the socialist state of the new century is his work to improve economic activity, he led the development of a strategy to maximize the use of the country's natural and geographical conditions and thoughtful conduct of economic calculations. He considered it necessary to intensify the work on the planning of fields, to improve foreign trade while consistently adhering to the principles of Juche socialism. The Great Leader managed to build a modern, dynamically developing socialist state of the XXI century, - concluded Comrade Dobrov.



Andrey Shin, Member of the Coordination of Committe of the DPRK ISG, Executive Secretary of "Bomminryong" and Chairman of the Council of Veterans of the Korean War, took the floor.

Lieutenant Colonel Shin, recalling the last days of the life of the Great Leader, stressed that the dear Сomrade Kim Jong Il, without the slightest rest, selflessly worked in the name of the wealth and happiness of the people. He talked about how doctors, knowing about the dire state of health of the leader of the country, begged him to rest, but Сomrade Kim Jong Il continued to lead the field until his last breath.

Comrade Shin Andrey emphasized that even nature recognizes Comrade Kim Jong Il, as evidenced by the recorded facts of abnormal weather events after the death of the Great Leader.
