Korean People's Army (KPA) Marshal Hyon Chol Hae, general adviser to the Ministry of National Defence of the DPRK, died of multiple organ failure at 09:00 of May 19, Juche 111 (2022) at the age of 87.

An obituary of him was issued by the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), the WPK Central Military Commission, the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Standing Committee of the Supreme People's Assembly on Thursday.

According to the obituary, Hyon Chol Hae was a soldier loyal to President Kim Il Sung and a revolutionary comrade-in-arms loyal to Chairman Kim Jong Il and the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

Born in the first half of the 1930s as a son of a member of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army organized and led by Kim Il Sung, he spent his childhood in a foreign country undergoing persecution and maltreatment. After national liberation, Hyon was able to understand a genuine life and happiness under the warm care of Kim Il Sung and studied at Mangyongdae Revolutionary School to grow up to be a core backbone shouldering the future of the country and the revolution.

During the rigorous Fatherland Liberation War, he fully displayed matchless valiance and self-sacrificing spirit in the sacred struggle of defending Kim Il Sung with his life as a soldier of the glorious bodyguard company.

Under the great political trust of the President, Hyon completed his studies at Kim Chaek University of Technology and overseas and worked at the Party Central Committee and local Party organizations. Since returning to the army in the early 1960s, he had upheld the Party's cause with arms and politically, ideologically and firmly, wearing military uniform all his life.

While carrying out the Party political work at responsible jobs of various departments of the KPA General Political Bureau, he made brilliant feats on the forefront of the struggle to realize the Party Central Committee's monolithic guidance over the revolutionary armed forces and ensure the purity of the Party ranks, which would remain long in the history of the Korean revolution.

Working as a leading official of a KPA large combined unit and a military academic institution and then as the director of the KPA General Logistics Department, he made significant contributions to the strengthening of the People's Army and the socialist cause.

As a leading official of the KPA General Political Bureau, he most closely assisted Kim Jong Il in pursuing the Songun revolutionary leadership during the arduous march, the forced march. And he actively contributed to making sure that the People's Army reliably defended the destiny of the country and the dynamic advance of the revolution with arms and played the role of the main force in bringing about a radical turn in socialist construction.

Devoting himself to his important duties in supreme leadership organs of the DPRK armed forces during the period of important historic turn in the succession to the revolutionary cause of Juche, he ensured that the monolithic command system of Kim Jong Un was established across the entire army. He devoted all his wisdom and energies to making the People's Army glorify its honorable history of feats as the revolutionary armed forces faithful to the WPK.

He received top grade Party and state commendations including the honorable Order of Kim Il Sung and Order of Kim Jong Il for his distinguished service in the strengthening of the revolutionary armed forces and Party political work in the KPA.

Though Hyon Chol Hae passed away, his achievements made before the Party, the revolution, the country and the people will go down along with the victorious advance of the Juche cause.
