    Hamhung, May 1 (KCNA) -- A national meeting took place at the Ryongsong Machine Complex on Monday to mark the 116th May Day. Present there were Yang Hyong Sop, vice-president of the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly, Hong Song Nam, chief secretary of the South Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK, Kim Jung Rin, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, Ro Tu Chol, vice-premier of the DPRK Cabinet, and other officials of the Party and power organs and public organizations in Pyongyang and local areas and workers, technicians and employees of the complex. Ryom Sun Gil, chairman of the Central Committee of the Generation Federation of Trade Unions of Korea, in his report said that the working class of the DPRK has admirably performed their sacred class mission and role before the Party and the revolution generation after generation, holding President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il in high esteem.
    The working class of the DPRK has rendered great services for the Party, the revolution, the country and the people, vigorously advancing the socialist cause of Juche. This glorious history of struggle is a history of the outstanding and tested leadership of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, he added.
    He called upon the working class of the DPRK to deeply cherish the steel-strong faith that the Party and the socialist country, the victory in the revolution and the prosperity of the country are thinkable only thanks to Kim Jong Il, provide the national defence industry with all necessary things on a priority basis as required by the line of economic construction in the era of Songun and thus take the lead in augmenting the military power of the country in every way.
    He underscored the need for the whole working class of the country to firmly defend the socialist class position and the gains of the revolution with the transparent viewpoint of war and anti-imperialist and anti-U.S. awareness and exalt the honor as victors in defending the country and building a great prosperous powerful socialist nation with the same spirit and mettle as displayed in the 1950s. The entire working class should wage a vigorous movement for independent reunification, peace against war and great national unity under the uplifted banner of "By our nation itself" and thus bring about a new turning point in the movement for national reunification, he said.
    He called on the working class of the DPRK to firmly unite with the revolutionary peoples of the world in the idea of independence, peace and friendship to smash the U.S. imperialists' moves for aggression and war, defend the dignity and sovereignty of the Korean nation and fulfill their international duty in the struggle for the human cause of independence.
