S. Korean Regime Accused of Desecrating Day of Sun Events

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, April 19 (KCNA) -- The DPRK government, political parties and organizations issued the following statement on Thursday:

The Korean nation and humankind celebrated the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung as the most auspicious grand festival of the century at a time when songs praising the peerlessly great man reverberated far and wide in the world along with the ever-lasting April of the sun's Korea.

The grand festival held to mark the 100th Day of the Sun amid the great jubilation and excitement of all the Koreans and people of the rest of the world was a manifestation of boundless praise of the whole Korean nation and humankind of Kim Il Sung, who brought a bright hope for national resurrection to the country torn with distress due to flunkeyism and national ruin and ushered in a new era of history in which the independent life and happiness of the popular masses were blooming and of General Secretary Kim Jong Il, who enabled the Korean nation to demonstrate its dignity, pride and wisdom before the whole world. It was, at the same time, an expression of the highest tribute and the most profound thanks to the benefactors of the nation and the peerlessly great men.

In particular, it was a great event which showed the bright future of the sun's Korea and demonstrated the unbreakable, harmonious whole before the world which will bring a reunified thriving nation and socialist wealth and prosperity in the new centenary of Juche by having Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un at the helm of the Songun revolution and carrying forward the will of the great persons of Mt. Paektu.

Never has Korea made all its people seethe with such joy and excitement and drawn such close attention of the world as the recent celebrations of the 100th Day of the Sun.

This being a hard fact, the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors hell-bent on confrontation with fellow countrymen committed such thrice-cursed high treason as chilling the atmosphere of the great national jubilee and letting loose a whole string of invectives, far from congratulating them on the day.

At a time when the celebrations of the Day of the Sun were under way in the DPRK, in particular, traitor Lee made a public appearance and jabbered that the north might spend a ridiculous amount of money for launching a long-range missile and that amount of fund would be enough to buy a large quantity of maize. Echoing his outbursts, ultra-right conservative media spread the story that the north spent a fabulous amount of fund for the celebrations of the Day of the Sun, talking about "funds for feast" and the like, adding that the amount of funds would be enough to procure food for several years' consumption.

This is lashing all the service personnel and people across the country into great fury as it is an unpardonable insult and hideous provocation against their leader, social system and people.

From olden times, Koreans used to say nothing is more sinful than spraying ash on the feast table of neighbors.

Even people of many other countries with different languages and races shared joy with Koreans, sincerely congratulating them on their great jubilee. But it is only the group of traitors, displeased with it, made such fuss, even spreading misinformation about the expenses for the events. This glaringly shows how wicked the Lee group is and how frantic it goes with confrontation with compatriots.

The group's frantic smear campaign is nothing but the last-ditch efforts to tarnish the international image of the DPRK, break the single-minded unity of the party and the people and quell the lively response evoked by the celebrations of the Day of the Sun at any cost.

The DPRK's recent grand celebrations of the Day of the Sun are a striking demonstration of its tremendous national power and potential.

The group of traitors seems to be ignorant of all these stark facts as it is free to let loose such nonsense.

What is intolerable is that the puppet group is busy with the above-said smear campaign while decrying the celebrations of the Day of the Sun, deliberately talking about a financial estimate. This is a mockery and insult to the unblemished and ardent loyalty of the army and people of the DPRK.

The group of traitors, the most wicked group of sharks, can never understand the noble spiritual world and dignity and pride of the army and people of the DPRK which it can never buy even with tens of millions of tons of gold.

The Korean people have traversed only the road of victory, weathering stern ordeals in defence of their independent dignity.

Herein lies the mental power with which the Korean people have turned the DPRK into an invincible power under the uplifted banner of Songun while tightening their belts.

Before speaking ill of the north over expenses and the like, the Lee Myung Bak group had better think over its own wretched plight: It has become a target of the people's judgment for squandering a fabulous amount of money collected from the people as taxes for the upkeep of the U.S. imperialist aggression troops in south Korea and moves for a war against the DPRK and converting south Korea into a dark society and a land ridden with suicides where the rich gets richer and the poor poorer while seeking personal luxury and glory, engrossed in irregularities and corruptions.

The puppet group recklessly desecrated even the celebrations of the Day of the Sun in the wake of hideous provocative acts of malignantly besmirching the events held over the great loss to the nation and hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK. This indicates that the group is making desperate efforts to do harm to the DPRK's social system and single-minded unity.

The army and the people of the DPRK consider the dignity of the supreme leadership and the harmonious whole with the leader as dearer than their own lives. They, therefore, will never pardon anyone who provokes them even a bit.

It is foolish, indeed, for the group to try to break the harmonious whole in which the leader and the people are united in the noblest will and feelings and their unity is growing stronger day by day, talking about such financial estimate.

By blatantly insulting and challenging our leader, social system and people, the group revealed itself that it is the sworn enemy with whom the Korean nation can never live under the same sky.

A particular mention should be made of the fact that Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un in his speech at the military parade for celebrating the centenary of the birth of the President clarified the magnanimous and positive stand that we will join hands with whoever wants the reunification of the country and the peace and prosperity of the nation. The group of traitors, however, responded to this with its reckless and sinister smear campaign, a clear indication of its sinister intention to keep to the road of confrontation with fellow countrymen.

The patience of the army and people of the DPRK has reached its limit. Their hearts are burning with the determination to wipe out the group of traitors in this land to the last man so that they may not kick off any longer such racket as hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.

The army and people will no longer remain a passive onlooker to the smear campaign of the puppet group.

The arms and artillery pieces of all the service personnel and people are ready to fire bullets and bombs for revenge. The weaponry of Mt. Paektu is clearly aimed at the wicked traitors.

The group should apologize at once for its hideous acts of desecrating the events held on the Day of the Sun in the DPRK.

Otherwise, all the service personnel and people of the DPRK will turn out in a sacred war for revenge, giving vent to their towering resentment, and make a clean sweep of the puppet group of traitors from this land once and for all.

Conservative media and wicked media persons keen on the smear campaign for hurting the dignity of the DPRK in collusion with traitor Lee Myung Bak will never be excluded from severe punishment as they have committed despicable crimes against the nation.

The puppet group would be well advised to properly understand all the service personnel and people of the DPRK, their hearts burning with the resolution to take a thousand-fold revenge, and stop its rash acts.
