Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un

The cause of Juche, pioneered and led by President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il, are being carried forward by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong Un is possessed of unbounded loyalty to the revolutionary cause of Juche, outstanding leadership ability, matchless courage and pluck, and popular traits. Thanks to his ennobling loyalty and moral obligation, a new phase was opened up in implementing the cause of immortalizing the leader.

Accordingly, the beaming image of General Kim Jong Il has been implanted in the minds of the people and the sacred history of his revolutionary activities continues without let-up. Through his energetic ideological and theoretical activities, Kim Jong Un formulated the great leaders’ revolutionary ideology as Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, and he is leading the Korean people to march straight ahead along the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road of socialism.

A perfect statesman of the present era, he accompanied General Kim Jong Il on the road of the Songun-based leadership, working with devotion for the development of the Party, the country and the army. Upon being appointed as Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, he has inspected one army unit after another, which is giving a powerful impetus to the enhancement of the country’s defence capability and the victorious advance of the cause of socialism.

In March 2013, when the situation on the Korean peninsula was growing acute owing to the uninterrupted war moves by the US, a plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea was held. At this meeting he advanced a new strategic line of simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up the nuclear forces.

In accordance with this line, he led the cause of building the country’s nuclear forces to victory, thus increasing the strength of socialist Korea to the highest level and developing the country into the Juche-oriented nuclear power.

By adhering to the principle of self-reliance and self-development the Korean people have built monumental edifices for their well-being and raised fierce flames of the industrial revolution in the new century, pushing back the frontiers of science and technology. They have achieved one eye-opening success after another in the fields of science, education, literature and the arts, and sports, bringing about an epochal turn in building a knowledge-based economy and a civilized socialist power.

Cherishing the life-long motto of the great leaders who believed in people as in heaven, Kim Jong Un administers politics of prioritizing the interests of the people and respecting and loving them in order to translate their beautiful dreams and ideals into reality. He shows paternal affection for and trust in the people to rally the service personnel and other people firmly around the Party.

The traditional single­ hearted unity of the country has been consolidated on the basis of his ennobling view of comrades and comrades-in-arms. All the people share the same destiny with their leader, advancing the revolution arm in arm and shoulder to shoulder with him. Thanks to his unshakeable determination to reunify the country, the national reunification movement is making rapid progress.
He has thwarted the imperialists’ war moves and rendered an outstanding contribution to ensuring global peace and stability and promoting the cause of independence for mankind, thereby winning international recognition as the great guardian of justice.

In reflection of the people’s unanimous will and desire he was elected Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, and he was awarded the title of Marshal of the DPRK.
