The Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) convened its Sixth Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee at the office building of the Party Central Committee on January 19 to discuss and decide immediate work and important policy issues of the Party and the state.

Kim Jong Un, general secretary of the WPK, was present at the meeting.

Attending the meeting were members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK and members and alternate members of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee.

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un presided over the meeting.

The meeting first discussed the issue of celebrating with splendour the 110th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung and the 80th birth anniversary of Chairman Kim Jong Il.

To most auspiciously and significantly celebrate the Day of the Sun (birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung) and the Day of the Shining Star (birth anniversary of Chairman Kim Jong Il) in this significant year is the bounden duty and moral obligation of the descendants of the President and the soldiers and disciples of the Chairman and also the boundless honour and pride of our people who have struggled, remaining faithful to the cause of the President and the Chairman.

No holidays are more significant than the Day of the Sun and the Day of the Shining Star for our Party and people struggling to carry forward and accomplish the revolutionary cause of the President and the Chairman under the uplifted banner of great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. The very existence of our dignified Party and state is unthinkable without the immortal exploits performed by the President and the Chairman in the glorious course of the Korean revolution.

The meeting called for making the Day of the Sun and the Day of the Shining Star in this historic year important political occasions for further cementing the firm faith of our people to carry forward and accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered and led by the President and the Chairman under the guidance of the Party to the end, and also for demonstrating before the world the high enthusiasm and revolutionary mettle of all the Party members and other people to glorify the second decade of the second century of the Juche era as the annals of victors bringing about the overall development of Korean-style socialism.

The Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee gave detailed assignments to the organs of the Party and the state to celebrate with splendour the 110th birth anniversary of the President and the 80th birth anniversary of the Chairman as the great festivals of victory and glory will shine long in the annals of the country.

The meeting adopted a resolution of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee "On celebrating with splendour the 110th birth anniversary of the great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the 80th birth anniversary of the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il".

The meeting heard a report analyzing the current situation around the Korean peninsula and a series of international issues and discussed the orientation for countermeasures against the US for the future.

Also communicated to the participants were the US recent moves of recklessly faulting for no reason the DPRK's legitimate exercise of sovereignty.

In the last few years alone after the DPRK-US summits the US staged hundreds of joint war drills which it committed itself to stop and conducted tests of all kinds of strategic weapons, while shipping ultra-modern attack means into south Korea and nuclear strategic weapons into the region around the Korean peninsula, seriously threatening the security of our state.

The US viciously slurred our state and committed the foolish act of taking over 20 independent sanctions measures. Especially the present US administration persists in maneuvers to deprive the DPRK of its right to self-defence.

All the facts clearly prove once again that the policy hostile towards the DPRK will exist in the future, too, as long as there is the hostile entity of US imperialism.

Assessing that the hostile policy and military threat by the US have reached a danger line that cannot be overlooked any more despite our sincere efforts for maintaining the general tide for relaxation of tension in the Korean peninsula since the DPRK-US summit in Singapore, the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee unanimously recognized that we should make more thorough preparations for a long-term confrontation with US imperialism. It concluded that a practical action should be taken to more reliably and effectively increase our physical strength for defending the dignity, sovereign rights and interests of our state.

The meeting of the Political Bureau reassigned the policy tasks for national defence to immediately bolster more powerful physical means which can efficiently control the hostile moves of the US against the DPRK getting ever more serious day by day. It gave an instruction to a sector concerned to reconsider on an overall scale the trust-building measures that we took on our own initiative on a preferential ground and to promptly examine the issue of restarting all temporarily-suspended activities.

The decision of the meeting is a timely and rightful step for reliably guaranteeing the existence and sovereign rights of our state in view of the urgent requirements of the developing revolution and under the prevailing situation.

The meeting fully demonstrated the revolutionary will and indomitable spirit of the WPK to uphold President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, who are the eternal sun of Juche and sacred incarnation of socialist Korea, in high esteem forever and to build an independent and dignified powerful country on this land without fail.
