Commission of the DPR of Korea and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army
Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, develops the WPK into a steel-strong vanguard force which advances on the strength of ideology and unity.
The most powerful weapon for a party that is waging a revolution shouldering the people’s destiny-in fact its one and only weapon-is ideology. The bloodline of the revolution is defended and the revolution advances on the strength of ideology-this is part of the speech Kim Jong Un delivered at the Eighth Conference of Ideological Workers of the WPK.
With a keen insight into the importance and significance of the might of ideology, he has held fast to the theory of giving definite precedence to the ideological work, put forward by the leaders of the preceding generations, and ensures that the tasks facing all sectors and units are carried out on the strength of ideology.
He regards it as an iron rule to build up the WPK and the army on the strength of ideology and achieve the prosperity of the country and nation by motivating the people ideologically.
The great ideological and spiritual strength possessed by the Korean people and the ennobling ideological and spiritual traits displayed by them vindicate the validity and vitality of the ideological work conducted by the WPK.
He has set it as an important demand for Party building to achieve the unity and harmony of the whole Party. Raising it as the main task of the ideological work of the WPK to imbue the whole society with one ideology, he ensures that all the members of society are firmly armed with the socialist ideology and Party policy, and never tolerates even the slightest element of alien ideology which may destroy and undermine the unity and cohesion.
Thus the WPK has been able to strengthen its unity in ideology, purpose and moral obligation based on one ideology and one centre, and give fullest play to its invincible might as the guiding force of the Korean society.
As is known worldwide, since it has the most powerful weapon of unity and cohesion, the WPK has been able to remain unaffected by the imperialists’ tenacious moves to stifle the country and their unprecedented economic sanctions, firmly safeguard its socialism and even usher in a golden age in building a powerful socialist country.
Now the Korean people, consolidating the position of their country as a politico-ideological power and military power on the unfathomable strength of ideology and unity, are dynamically advancing to attain the status of a power in all aspects including the economy, science and technology, and civilization.
Kim Jong Un develops the WPK into a genuine motherly party which, upholding the people-first principle, makes devoted, selfless efforts for the good of the people.
All his activities are geared to prioritizing, respecting and loving the people. With the people-first principle as his first and foremost political ideal, he reflects the people’s demands and opinions in formulating and implementing all lines and policies, and ensures that their interests are never violated in this process. He leads officials to go deep among the people, listen to their opinions and work with devotion for them, true to the slogan, “Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!”
As he cherishes such ennobling outlook on the people, he raised cheers not for the WPK but for the people during a rally held on October 10, 2015 in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the WPK and appealed to all members of the WPK to make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the great people.
In August 2012, when a touch-and-go situation was prevailing in a region on the West Sea of Korea, he, accompanied by a few members of his entourage, went by a small wooden vessel to the Korean People’s Army unit defending a far-flung island in the region.
The journey was surprising, but the audiences were moved more by the scenes of blood-sealed ties between him and the service personnel and people-the Supreme Commander showing meticulous care for the living of the service personnel and officer’s families and the latter running to the Supreme Commander’s embrace with tearful eyes and jumping into cold seawater to see him off.
These impressive scenes can never be re-produced by any famous cinema director or be witnessed in any other country. This was a true picture of the harmonious whole of the leader and the people, unique to Korea.
Fascinated by the devotion with which he does his all for their welfare and his will to pluck even a star from the heaven if it is their wish, the Korean people have entrusted their destiny and future to him. And they have turned out as one in the struggle to implement the WPK’s lines and policies; they call it their mother as it translates his affection for the people into reality.
Indeed, the dignity and pride of the WPK, which confidently leads the socialist cause along the road of victory enjoying the people’s absolute trust and support, is inconceivable separated from the leadership of Kim Jong Un, its Chairman.
On the occasion of the 71st anniversary of the founding of the WPK (October 10, 1945), the progressive peoples of the world extend warm congratulations and pay noble tribute to Kim Jong Un.
