    Pyongyang, November 3 (KCNA) -- A national meeting to mark the 60th anniversary of President Kim Il Sung's famous work "On Establishing a University" took place at the People's Palace of Culture on Nov. 2. Talking to educational workers at a meeting with them on Nov. 3, Juche 34 (1945) Kim Il Sung clarified the orientation of training native cadres, saying that it is necessary to establish a university first along with primary and secondary schools in order to train cadres needed for building a new country as early as possible.
    Addressing the meeting Choe Thae Bok, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, said: The policy of establishing a university and building more universities with it as a matrix is a scientific policy for building the base for training native cadres as it makes it possible to train cadres in different fields at the same time to suit the actual conditions of the country. The policy has become a unique Korean-style policy of establishing a university.
    The establishment of Kim Il Sung University on Oct. 1, Juche 35 (1946) provided a dependable base for training native cadres of the worker-peasant origin through its own efforts and opened up a bright prospect of expanding the base for training native cadres with it as a matrix. Referring to the exploits performed by Kim Il Sung for developing the university, he noted that the university has entered a new high stage of its development thanks to the wise guidance of leader Kim Jong Il who has successfully carried forward Kim Il Sung's Juche-based idea on education and his immortal leadership exploits.
    Kim Jong Il wisely led the work of the university with his extraordinary wisdom, outstanding leadership ability, enthusiastic pursuits and energetic ideological and theoretical activities and converted the university into a genuine university of the party, the leader and the people both in name and reality as it has trained core cadres for accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Juche as intended by Kim Il Sung. In this course Kim Jong Il has performed undying feats before the times and the history.
    The reporter underscored the need for all the educational workers to give full play to the vitality of the famous work and effect a revolutionary turn in the university education as required by the Songun era.
    The meeting was attended by Yang Hyong Sop, Kim Ki Nam and Ri Kwang Ho, department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, Kim Yong Jin, minister of Education, and Pyon Yong Rip, president of the Academy of Sciences.
