Respected Chairman and Dear friends,

It is a great honor for me to speak in the Internet seminar which is organized by The Asian and Pacific organizations of Friendship and Solidarity with the Korean people on the peace and reunification of Korea as this is 60 years since the Korean people won the victory in the Korean war . Enclosed here is the paper in assistance for your speech in the Asian and Pacific Internet Seminar celebrating the 60th anniversary of our victory in the Korean War.

Nearly six decades ago, the Korean people won a great victory in the Korean war (June 25 1950- July 27, 1953).The victory in this war against the armed invasion by the US imperialists was impossible separated from the brilliant strategy and tactics of President Kim Il Sung (1912-1994).

The Korean war, the fiercest of its kind after the Second World War, was a political and ideological confrontation between socialism and capitalism and, at the same time, a test of the art of leadership of the commanders-in-chief of both sides.

At dawn on June 25 (Sunday), 1950, the south Korean army, upon order of the United States, launched a preemptive attack against the Democratic People’s Republic of Kora, the start of the Korean war. This blitzkrieg strategy, long pored over by the US strategists, was shattered to pieces by the immediate counteroffensive of the Korean People’s Army (KPA).

Learning of the intrusion, Kim Il Sung ordered the KPA to frustrate the enemy’s attack and immediately switched over to a counteroffensive. Accordingly, it checked the enemy’s intrusion on the first day of the war, and advanced southwards. Seoul fell on June 28, the third day of the war.

Before igniting the Korean war, the United States, which had been boasting of being the “strongest” in the world, ensured absolute superiority over the Korean People’s Army in terms of strength, and introduced large amounts of military hardware into south Korea. It vaunted, saying that there had been no time when preparations were as perfect as at this time for a war and that the war would be finished in a few days. Many people were apprehensive of the fate of the DPRK.

It had been a convention in the world history of war that the side which was surprised by the other side at the start of a war retreat temporarily and then make a counteroffensive after bringing the situation under control however mighty its military strength was. But when the enemy troops made a surprise attack at the dawn of June 25, 1950 (Sunday), President Kim Il Sung led his country to frustrate it at a stroke with prompt, full-scale counteroffensive. Under his order, the KPA units checked the enemy’s offensive a few hours after the start of the war, switched over to counteroffensive and moved south as they gained momentum as they advanced; in this course, they liberated 90% of the territory of south Korea and 92% of its population in a little over one month.

When the United States attempted to “enircle and annihilate” the KPA units by hurling even the troops of its 15 satellited countries to the Korean front, President Kim Il Sung ordered them to make a strategic and temporary retreat, thus saving the situation. He then turned the tide of the war by ensuring that the KPA units formed the second front, harassed the enemy in their rear and made a new counteroffensive. The KPA soldiers, in conformity with the terrain features of their mountainous country, dug tunnels and, by relying on those tunnels, employed various combat methods, like sharpshooting and assaulting the enemy troops and hunting enemy aircraft and tanks; they thus frustrated the enemy’s offensive and steadily weakened the enemy forces. For example,they shot down over 1200 enemy aircraft in one year of 1952. The unique tactics and audaious and adroit operations employed by Supreme Commander

Kim Il Sung, who always took the initiative, adapting himself to the ever-changing situation, forced the US aggressors to kneel down. Formr Portuguese President Gomes, who participated in the Korean war on the US side, said: “The operations plans advanced by the United States in the war were all formulated after several rounds of discussion by dozens of bourgeois generals, like chiefs of staff and military specialists, of the Western countries on the US side. But General Kim Il Sung frustrated them all single-handed. Witnessign it, I learned that General Kim Il Sung was the one and only military strategist and a great general.”

After signing the Korean Armistice Agreement, a document of the US surrender, Mark Clark, commander of the “UN forces,” confessed that the north Korean army could emerge victorious thanks to General Kim Il Sung’s efficient command.

Even after the Korean war, fierce stand-off continued between the DPRK and the US.

Directing the spearhead of its aggression on Asia, the US reinforced its aggressive troops in south Korea, introduced quantities of weapons of mass destrucion, like nuclear weapons, into it and committed acts of espionage and military provocations and war games one after another.

In the early 1960s, when the situation was growing aggravated owing to the US schemes to ignite a new war,

President Kim Il Sung advanced the line of simutaneously pushing ahead with economic construction and defence building, and strengthened the military capabilities of the country to the maximum. And the self-defensive line of making the entire army a cadre army, modernizing it, putting all the people under arms and turning the whole country into a fortress, a line he put forward, strengthened the Korean People’s Army into an army each of whose soldiers is a match for a hundred foes and turned the whole country into an impregnable fortress.

This frustrated the successive military provocations of the US. The Pueblo incident of January 1968 is an example.

When their armed spy ship Pueblo was captured by the KPA Navy after it had intruded into the territorial waters of the DPRK, the US imperialists concentrated their large forces, including a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, in the waters near the Korean peninsula, claiming about a “powerful military counteraction” and “retaliation”. A hair-trigger situation prevailed in the Korean peninsula.

President Kim Il Sung declared that the DPRK would answer the enemy’s “retaliation” with retaliation and their all-out war with an all-out war. Disheartened by his pluck and courage, the US authorities signed a document, in which they apologized for the hostile acts of espionage committed by the Pueblo and promised that no US vessel would intrude into the territorial waters of the DPRK. This was a document of apology the US authorities signed for the first time in the history of the United States.

President Kim Il Sung was, indeed, a legendary hero, military genius and iron-willed commander , who created outstanding military ideas, original strategies and tactics and diversified experiences and achieved military exploits that could be etched in the world history in the protracted, fierce struggle for liberating his country and defending its sovereignty.

The President KIM IL SUNG was the Great Leader of the Korean people and remain always the Great Leader. The contributions made by the Great Leader KIM IL SUNG will be written in the golden figures in the world history.

I had the great opportunity to meet the Great Leader President KIM IL SUNG with my wife in Chongjin, DPRK on 19th June 1979, which we are remembering still now. During that time I had the great opportunity to take face to face direct interview with him.

I had visited many countries of the world including DPRK but I like to visit DPRK again and again.

The Juche Idea is the great idea. This idea is very popular in each and every country of the world including Nepal. I am the first Nepali Citizen who received Degree of Doctor from DPRK on the subject of‘The Great Juche Idea and DPRK’ in Pyongyang on 16th April 2012.

Lastly, I would like to express my sincere greetings to the Supreme Leader Marshall KIM JONG UN and wish him a long life, good health and prosperity.

Long Live The Great Leader President KIM IL SUNG !                                                                                          

Long Live The Great Juche Idea !

Long Live Nepal-DPRK Friendly Relations !

Thank You.
