History of Glory

The 70-year history of the WPK is a history of progress, innovation, enthusiasm and devotion.

The cause of the WPK is making rapid headway under the leadership of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, who is one and the same as President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il in ideology, art of leadership and personality.

He renamed the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, supreme sanctuary of Juche, the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun and ensured that the General was preserved in his lifetime appearance there, so as to make it the eternal sacred place of the Sun. In reflection of the unanimous desire of the Korean people he made sure that the statues of the General and murals bearing his beaming images were set up on Mansu Hill, at the Mansudae Art Studio and in other parts of the country, and his birthday February 16, the greatest national holiday, was designated as the Day of the Shining Star, so as to glorify his brilliant career and immortal revolutionary exploits for ever.

At the Fourth Conference of the WPK and the Fifth Session of the 12th Supreme People’s Assembly held in April Juche 101 (2012) General Kim Jong Il was acclaimed as the eternal leader of the Korean revolution, eternal General Secretary of the WPK and eternal Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK.

In appreciation of the outstanding ability and qualifications of Kim Jong Un who, accompanying Kim Jong Il on the road of his Songun-based leadership, had faithfully supported the revolutionary cause of Juche enjoying the firm confidence of the service personnel and people, he was elected First Secretary of the WPK and First Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK.

Through his intensive ideological and theoretical activities he gave, in a short period, perfect solutions to the theoretical and practical problems concerning all the sectors of the revolution and construction; setting out the permanent strategy of independence, Songun and socialism for the Korean revolution, defining Kim Jong Il’s patriotism and developing the theory on building a thriving socialist country. He delivered speeches at the Fourth Conference of the WPK Cell Secretaries and the Eighth Conference of Ideological Workers of the WPK, calling on the whole Party to bring about a fundamental improvement in Party work and launch a vigorous ideological offensive.

On January 1, Juche 101 (2012) Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un inspected the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the KPA, demonstrating his unshakeable determination to follow the road of Songun arm-in-arm and shoulder-to-shoulder with his service personnel as the General did.

He presided over the First Conference of Pilots of the KPA, the Fourth Conference of Company Commanders and Political Instructors and the Third Conference of Battalion Commanders and Political Instructors, and ensured that they served as important occasions to turn all its companies and battalions into the service personnel’s dear homes and villages that adjoin the office of the Central Committee of the WPK. As a measure to develop the country’s military capabilities to the highest standard, he also saw that the service personnel intensified training as the anti-Japanese guerrillas had done on Mt. Paektu, so as to improve the combat efficiency of the KPA in every way possible and perfect its combat readiness.

On December 12, Juche 101 (2012) an indigenous artificial earth satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 achieved orbit, demonstrating again the country’s capability of manufacturing and launching artificial earth satellites. Later, the third underground nuclear test was launched successfully.

Kim Jong Un advanced the strategic line of simultaneously promoting economic construction and building up nuclear forces at the plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the WPK held in March Juche 102 (2013), thus illuminating the road to achieving final victory in the anti-US showdown and the cause of building a thriving socialist country. He also had the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum rebuilt as required by the new century to add brilliance to the WPK’s history of victory.

He paid close concern to ushering in a golden age in construction. The service personnel of the KPA created the Masikryong speed at the construction site of the Masikryong Ski Resort and the builders of the January 8 Fishery Station of the KPA created a new speed of the times, the speed of Korea. Model units for industrial development were set up all over the country.

Thanks to the benevolent policy of the WPK monumental edifices for the benefit of people mushroomed in a few years, including daily-care centres and children’s palaces, and its policy of focusing on young people was reaffirmed at the Youth Day Celebration Conference and the Second National Conference of Model Youth of Virtue.

According to its plan for building a cultured socialist nation, measures were taken to develop education and music, such as the enforcement of the universal 12-year compulsory education and the establishment of the Moranbong Band, and raise a strong wind of sports to demonstrate the mettle of Songun Korea.

The people’s dreams and ideals are realized as cheers for the Workers’ Party are raised wherever they live and children sing happily of their best country in the world–this reality is the fruit of the great ideology and leadership and patriotic devotion of Kim Jong Un who is leading the nation with outstanding insight and unquenchable enthusiasm.

The WPK’s history of victory and glory will continue as long as it is led by him.
