    Pyongyang, November 22 (KCNA) -- Pyongyang-based papers today warmly hail the opening of the 3rd national meeting of mothers here. The 1st national meeting of mothers took place in November 1961 in the presence of President Kim Il Sung and the 2nd meeting was held in 1998. The 3rd meeting will prove to be a historic meeting strikingly demonstrating the noble ideological and moral qualities of the mothers and other women in the DPRK united close around the headquarters of the revolution and mark a significant occasion in fully showcasing the revolutionary spirit of the Korean women who play a great role in the revolution and construction and in the training of the rising generation, Rodong Sinmun notes in an editorial, and goes on:
    The women have a very important task to fulfill as they are turning one of the wheels of revolution.
    The meeting will offer opportunities to widely introduce the examples and experience of those mothers who gave birth to many babies or took care of many orphans as they would do their own children and brought up them as human bullets and bombs, reliable pillars for building a great prosperous powerful nation and heroes and other women who have performed great feats assisting the army, the education of the rising generation, drive for building a great prosperous powerful nation. The meeting will give further momentum to the dynamic social movement for learning from them and help bring about a fresh turn in the education of the younger generation and markedly raise the role of the women as a mighty force for building a great prosperous powerful nation. The opening of the meeting is a clear proof of the great policy followed by the WPK to put the dignity of the mothers and other women on the highest level and take care of their destiny and future in a responsible manner.
    The editorial calls upon all mothers and other women to remain true to the Songun idea and policy, firmly uphold and thoroughly implement them and eternally glorify the country as a big harmonious family, its society as a society where the benevolent policy of leader Kim Jong Il is in full bloom. Minju Joson editorially calls upon all mothers and other women to bear their duties they have assumed before the revolution and times in mind and remain true to the Songun idea and leadership of Kim Jong Il and thus strikingly demonstrate the Korean women's wisdom and revolutionary stamina to the whole world.
