He extended warm congratulations to the war veterans who participated in the conference, all the participants in the Fatherland Liberation War and persons of wartime merits on the occasion of the 67th anniversary of the Korean people's victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War.

He also paid noble tributes to the well-known and unsung revolutionary martyrs who dedicated their valuable lives to the sacred war for the country's reunification and independence and people's freedom and happiness and the fallen fighters of the Chinese People's Volunteers who set a genuine example of militant friendship while helping the Korean people in their revolutionary war at the cost of blood, and war veterans.

Highly appreciating the heroic life of the generation who performed the undying feats and created the noble fighting spirit in the hard-fought Fatherland Liberation War true to the guidance of President Kim Il Sung, he expressed great belief that the war veterans would successfully hand down the spirit of the 1950s to the rising generation as the bloodline of faith.

The participants in the conference were greatly excited by the congratulatory speech full of high appreciation, respect, noble comradely loving care and noble revolutionary obligation for the participants in the great Fatherland Liberation War.

As soon as Kim Jong Un finished his speech, loud cheers of "hurrah!" resounded around the venue of the conference once again.

All the participants extended the greatest glory and the warmest thanks to Kim Jong Un who holds up the war veterans as the honorable master who made the great history and laid a foundation of the independent power and bestows all sorts of benevolence on them.

Kim Sung Un, hero of the Republic who is a lecturer of the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum, made a speech addressed to the rising generation.

Saying that Kim Il Sung who is the national liberator and illustrious leader of new Korea meant the country and the pillar of faith for the Korean people and fighters of the People's Army during the days of the war, he stressed that the war veterans brought about July 27 of victory by fighting in the indomitable faith that they could never be deprived of the land and the thankful country liberated by Kim Il Sung and with a unique thought that they have to kill the enemy even though they might die one hundred times.

Saying that the war veterans take pride in handing down the spirit of defending the country to the rising generation as a heritage, he expressed the absolute conviction that the DPRK would certainly win victories thanks to Kim Jong Un, the iron-willed commander.

He stressed that our country would certainly win victory, asking the rising generation to uphold well Kim Jong Un who devotes himself for the people's dignity and happiness and believing, holding and following only our Party despite any trial, bearing in mind the spirit of defending the country and spirit of defending the revolution displayed in the 1950s as their faith.

Then, Jo Chun Hyok, student of Kim Il Sung University, made a resolution speech on behalf of youths and Ji Yong Min, officer of the Korean People's Army on behalf of the service personnel.

Speakers extended warm congratulations and militant salute to the war veterans who participated in the 6th National Conference of War Veterans, reflecting the mind of the youth and service personnel across the country.

They said that the war veterans who honorably defended the dignity and sovereignty of the country from the imperialists' gangster-like invasion and handed down the indomitable spirit of defending the country as their valuable heritage are clearly kept in their minds as the model of true soldier.

They stressed that they would become the youth heroes, who dedicate their lives for the sake of the Party, revolution and country by carrying forward the spirit and soul in the great era of winning victory in the war, and invariably and single-mindedly believe in and follow only our Party in any storm and stress.

They made a firm resolution to devotedly defend the Central Committee of the Party headed by Kim Jong Un and implement the Party's policies in the van, bearing in mind that the history of winning victory in the war and victory of socialism are guaranteed only by the spirit of devotedly defending the leader.

Kim Jong Un extended warm greetings to the war veterans across the country, warmly congratulating them once again upon performing the immortal exploits which would shine long in the history of the country.

The 6th National Conference of War Veterans fully demonstrated the firm faith and will of our people and service personnel to add shine to the proud history and tradition, created and continued under the guidance of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, generation after generation under the leadership of Kim Jong Un and accomplish the cause of building a powerful socialist nation without fail. -0-
