Pak Jong Chon, Member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and Secretary of the Party Central Committee, made a condolatory address.
Today we are bidding our last farewell with the bitterest grief to Marshal of the Korean People's Army Hyon Chol Hae, General Advisor to the Ministry of National Defence of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, who performed the immortal exploits to shine in the history of the Juche revolution forever on the road of loyal service for the country and people, supporting only the Party and the leader all his life.
Serving in the armed forces organs for 60 years, Hyon Chol Hae has taken the straight road of revolution following the Party and the leader only with one mind and performed the distinguished feats nobody can replace in building the Party and the revolutionary armed forces and carrying forward and developing the revolutionary cause.
Clearly recorded in the great and sacred annals of the Korean revolution from the glorious era of creating a new history of socialist construction under the guidance of the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il to the present day of glorifying the heyday of strengthening the national might under the leadership of the respected Kim Jong Un are the undying feats of Hyon Chol Hae who has resolutely defended the leaders and devoted all his soul to the struggle for firmly establishing the ideological system of the leaders and the system of their leadership.
Hyon Chol Hae was a paragon of loyalists who taught our generation with a brilliant example of his life with what attitude and stand a revolutionary soldier should support the leader and how he should implement the leader's idea and intention; he was a model of revolutionaries even the future generations should praise and follow forever.
Though Hyon Chol Hae passed away, his revolutionary life and exploits will be immortal along with the cause of our Party emerging ever-victorious day by day and the constant strengthening and development of our great state and armed forces of the DPRK, he added.
