Kim Jong Un, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and president of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, met and had a photo session with the participants in the 8th National Conference of War Veterans who significantly commemorated the great V-Day before the Monument to the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War on July 28.
The venue of the photo session was overflowing with the boundless reverence for the respected General Secretary Kim Jong Un who holds up the war veterans as the most heroic generation and model of the indomitable and great Korean people who laid the cornerstone of the DPRK remaining stable and unchanged despite the trials of history and repeatedly bestows warm benevolence on them so that they can gain in vigor despite their advanced years and continue to add luster to their lives with pride.
When Kim Jong Un arrived at the venue of the photo session, all the participants raised enthusiastic cheers for him, the peerlessly iron-willed commander and the ever-victorious banner who adds luster to the tradition of victory and the heroic spirit of July 27 that brought immortal glory and honor to our country century after century and who fully demonstrates to the world the dignity and mightiness of socialist Korea.
He again paid his deep respects to the participants in the Fatherland Liberation War who defied death to repel the gangster-like U.S. imperialists' aggression in the hard-fought revolutionary war unprecedented in history through their bloody distinguished service and set a good example to be followed by the rising generations in defending the country and the revolution and fighting a sacred class war and are still now serving as the inexhaustible strength and mental mainstay of our Party and people that can never be substituted by anyone, though their hair turned grey.
Saying that everything dear to dignified socialist Korea is associated with the immortal feats of the defenders of the country in the 1950s, he stressed that the precious ideological and moral wealth of the generation who won the victory in the war serve as the blood and flesh of the descendants and as a nutrient for their true life and struggle and therein lies the source of invincibility of our country.
He had a meaningful photo session with the war veterans, affirming his firm will to turn the land of the country, defended and ardently loved by the generation of war victors at the cost of their lives, into a powerful and eternally prosperous socialist paradise where all the people enjoy a happy life.
At the end of the photo session, all the participants again broke into cheers of "Hurrah!"
He warmly grasped the hands of war veterans coming near to him with tears of emotion and extended warm greetings to them for a long time as a token of his wish for their longevity in good health.
