A memorial service was held solemnly at the April 25 House of Culture on Friday to commemorate the first anniversary of the demise of Hyon Chol Hae who was a prominent political and military activist of the Party and the state and a veteran of the armed forces organs of the DPRK.

The memorial service hall was filled with solemn memory and sorrow of the late Marshal of the Korean People’s Army Hyon Chol Hae, the most faithful man who followed and supported the leaders with faith, obligation and conscience with the transparent revolutionary outlook on the leader and glorified the most valuable life in the sacred history of the leaders, and the general adviser to the Ministry of National Defence of the DPRK who performed immortal exploits for the building of a powerful army of Juche type, prosperity of the country and succession and development of the revolutionary cause.

Present there were Kim Tok Hun, Jo Yong Won, Choe Ryong Hae and Ri Pyong Chol, members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Choe Son Hui, minister of Foreign Affairs, Kang Sun Nam, minister of National Defence, and other senior officials of the Party, government and military, teaching staff and students of military schools at all levels and revolutionary schools together with the bereaved family members.

The participants paid a silent tribute to the memory of Hyon Chol Hae who devoted his all to the victorious advance of the Juche cause shining with the lineage of Paektu with the single-minded loyalty to the Party and the leaders and the spirit of devoted service to the country and people throughout his life.

Ri Il Hwan, member of the Political Bureau and secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, made a memorial address.

He said that the sorrow of bidding farewell to Hyon Chol Hae, which left an indelible loss in the history of the Korean revolution, still lingers in the hearts of all the people and service personnel of the Korean People’s Army. He referred to the brilliant life of the martyr who led and encouraged the Korean people as a model of loyalist, steadfast revolutionary and genuine human in the forefront of the revolution advancing toward a new victory, always being together with the Korean people in their struggle and life for the past one year.

He said that the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, valuing most the genuine revolutionary traits and humanity of Hyon Chol Hae who had remained true to the leaders, the revolution and his duty all his life, showed the noble example of the harmonious whole of the leader and soldier with the boundless love and obligation.

Reverently remembering a loyal elder who enjoyed the highest honor and happiness as a soldier and Korean revolutionary under the warm care of Kim Jong Un, the speaker stressed that the noble life and distinguished feats of Hyon Chol Hae will be immortal as they filled with legendary stories about love, trust, loyalty and repayment between the leader and soldiers.

He noted that our cause inheriting the victorious course under the leadership of the great WPK requires younger generations to succeed the soul and spirit of the loyalists of the preceding generations and that all the people and service personnel of the KPA should leave the trace of worthwhile life in the struggle for accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Juche as Hyon Chol Hae did.

He paid high tribute to the noble life of Hyon Chol Hae, calling for waging a dynamic struggle for the accomplishment of the cause of building the Korean-style socialist power led by Kim Jong Un and for the rosy future of our powerful country by carrying forward the batons of idea, faith, loyalty and patriotism of the revolutionary martyrs.

All the participants renewed their firm will to make strenuous efforts for the cause of the WPK and the steady development of the state and the armed forces of the DPRK by regarding the life of the veteran revolutionary faithful to the cause of the leaders as an example and faithfully upholding the idea and leadership of Kim Jong Un who is our destiny and future.
