Pyongyang, June 18 (KCNA) -- Forty-six years has elapsed since General Secretary Kim Jong Il started working at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) on June 19.

During the period, he has turned the WPK into an invincible party of President Kim Il Sung and led it to fully discharge its mission and role in an effort for victorious advance of socialism.

With socialism collapsed in east European countries towards the close of the last century, the imperialists, advertising the "end of socialism" and the "victory of capitalism", tried hard to stifle the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

At that time, Kim Jong Il published a famous work, "On the Fundamentals of Revolutionary Party Building", to provide guidelines of party building to progressive parties and people aspiring after socialism.

He also clearly indicated the guidelines of revolutionary party building and activity and the way to be followed by the socialist movement of the world in other famous works, including "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable" and "Socialism Is a Science".

So the socialist movement has greeted a new turning point.

In particular, the Pyongyang Declaration "Let Us Defend and Advance the Cause of Socialism" adopted in April Juche 81 (1992) has served as a powerful weapon and inspiring banner to rescue the world socialist movement from crisis and to propel it.

When the declaration was adopted, forty-eight leaders and representatives from 70 parties across the world signed it.

The parties that signed the declaration until now total over 270.

Tremendous are the feats performed by Kim Jong Il in successfully steering the era of independence with outstanding ideological and theoretical activities and distinguished leadership.
