Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) -- Kim Chol Ju, a younger brother of President Kim Il Sung, was an ardent revolutionary who lived a brilliant life with an indomitable spiritual strength.

He, who grew up, receiving a patriotic and revolutionary education from his family members, remained faithful to the leadership of President Kim Il Sung till the last moments of his life in the struggle for the liberation of the country.

While active in the Saenal Children's Union, he conducted art propaganda activities for enlightening the popular masses and carried out revolutionary tasks in a responsible manner such as the publication and distribution of newspaper Saenal (new day).

In the days of giving himself up to the work of the Young Communist League, he personally created revolutionary songs and dramas to encourage many young people to the revolutionary struggle.

His spiritual strength was fully displayed in the effort for implementing the President's line on forming a united front.

It was a very dangerous task to form a united front with Chinese anti-Japanese units that, deceived by the Japanese imperialists' policy of national split and anti-communist propaganda, were antagonizing the Korean nation and killing Korean revolutionaries unreasonably.

Nevertheless, he did not hesitate to go to the units and persuade them into a united front with outstanding stratagem, profound insight and persevering efforts.

He, who distinguished himself in Yangcaogou, Badaogou, Dadianzi, Fuerhe and many other battles against the Japanese aggressors, died a heroic death near Chechangzi in June Juche 24 (1935).

His life gives a truth that a revolutionary who devoted himself to the country and the nation with an indomitable spirit is always alive in the mind of the people and in the history of the country.
