    Pyongyang, March 8 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, Monday sent a message of greetings to Bashar al''Assad, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Syrian Baath Arab Socialist Party and president of the Syrian Arab Republic. The message reads:
    I extend warm felicitations to you and the friendly government of the Syrian Arab Republic and people on the 42nd anniversary of the March 8 Revolution in Syria.
    The March 8 Revolution was an epochal event of enormous significance in the history of your people's just struggle.
    Our people positively support your people in the just cause of defence of the sovereignty of the country and national dignity and a fair and package solution to the Middle East issue and will always remain on the side of your people in the future.
    Believing that your government and people will win a greater success in their work for achieving the prosperity and development of the country, decisively repelling the interference and pressure of the hostile forces, I avail myself of this opportunity of wishing you good health and happiness.
