The following statement from Workers World Party was issued April 14.
Comrade Kim Jong Un
Chairman of the Workers Party of Korea
Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK
Pyongyang, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
Dear Comrade Kim Jong Un,
Workers World Party conveys to the Workers Party of Korea its continued firm solidarity and support on the 105th anniversary of the birth of Comrade Kim Il Sung.
First as a political organizer, then as a revolutionary guerrilla commander, and ultimately as leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Korean People’s Army, Kim Il Sung achieved incredible victories in the struggle to liberate Korea from imperialist domination, inspiring the masses of people to build and defend a strong, independent socialist nation.
Kim Il Sung’s example lives in the determination of today’s leaders of the DPRK not to yield to the war threats being hurled right now by the criminal agents of U.S. imperialism. The DPRK has every right to arm in self-defense against this brutal gang of exploiters, who have shown again and again that they respect no international laws and can be restrained only by a show of force.
U.S. out of Korea! Long live the revolutionary spirit of Comrade Kim Il Sung!
For the Secretariat of the National Committee, Workers World Party
