Pyongyang, April 9 (KCNA) -- Leading papers Tuesday editorially mark the 20th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's election as chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission.
Kim Jong Il assumed the responsible post of chairman of the NDC on April 9, Juche 82 (1993), a reflection of high intention of President Kim Il Sung and unanimous will and desire of the party, the country and the people.
Peerlessly brilliant Songun commander Kim Jong Il's election as chairman of the NDC guaranteed the country's emergence as the most powerful politico-ideological and military giant in the world and a new era of prosperity unprecedented in the nation's history spanning 5,000 years on this land, says Rodong Sinmun.
It goes on:
Thanks to Kim Jong Il's talented wisdom and distinguished leadership ability, iron will and superhuman devotion, victories were achieved in the confrontation with imperialists and U.S. and eye-opening miracles were made in the building of a thriving nation.
He comprehensively embodied the original Songun politics, developed the Korean People's Army into the matchless revolutionary army and realized the single-minded unity and the great army-people unity on the highest stage based on the Juche idea, Songun idea and the revolutionary solider spirit.
It is the distinguished feat in the nation's history that he developed the DPRK into a satellite manufacturing and launching state and a full-fledged nuclear weapons state with his noble responsibility for the destiny of the country and the nation, matchless grit and strong determination.
The greatest feat he performed for the eternal prosperity of the great Paektusan nation is that he successfully solved the issue of inheriting the leadership.
The prosperity of socialist Korea will be forever as the DPRK is led by the dear respected Kim Jong Un, the brilliant Songun commander of Mt. Paektu.
Minju Joson says that Kim Jong Il's feats in the Songun revolutionary leadership will shine long along with the development of the DPRK.
