He climbed the cemetery with members of the state funeral committee and bereaved family members following the remains of the deceased.

With declaration of the ceremony the national anthem of the DPRK was solemnly played.

Pak Jong Chon, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau and secretary of the WPK Central Committee, made a eulogy.

A ceremony for burying the remains of the late Hyon Chol Hae was held.

180 volleys for the deceased were fired out of bitterness upon parting forever from the prominent political and military activist who made an immortal contribution to the Party, revolution, country and people at a historic time when the Korean people win a great victory full of confidence and vitality.

Kim Jong Un spread earth on the remains, repressing his sorrow over the last parting with a precious veteran of revolution whom he heartily respected and dearly treasured.

Saying that whenever recollecting the arduous Songun march made by Chairman Kim Jong Il , he comes to think about Hyon Chol Hae first who always remained faithful to the Chairman as his closest political and military aide, Kim Jong Un stressed that the life of a revolutionary soldier shining in the sacred history of the leader is the most vivid expression of the most worthwhile life.

He said that though the veteran revolutionary passed away, the name of Hyon Chol Hae would be always remembered along with the august name of Kim Jong Il and his noble soul and spirit would be immortal along with the cause of our Party winning victory after victory with each passing day and remarkable development of our great state and armed forces of the Republic.

Hyon Chol Hae, a steadfast revolutionary who remained boundlessly faithful to the revolutionary idea and cause of the Party Central Committee till the last moments of his life, will always be kept in the noble memory of the great leader and in the mind of our people and servicepersons vigorously advancing towards the final victory of the Juche revolution. -0-
