On May 09, 2017, His Excellency KIM JONG UN was elected to the high post of the Chairman of the glorious Workers' Party of Korea. Coming May 09, 2024, would be the 8th anniversary of His Excellency KIM JONG UN's election to the high post of the Chairman of the glorious Workers' Party of Korea. Let us extend our warm congratulations to the Supreme leader of the DPR Korea.

The Workers’ Party of Korea, having a glorious history of anti-imperialist struggle, has always inspired the people to struggle against tyranny, injustice, and oppression all over the world. At present the world people is watching the surprising results under the far-sighted leadership of His Excellency KIM JONG UN's continuation of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.

May 25:     
May 25, 1955, is the significant day when the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) came into being. The glorious course covered by Chongryon, a dignified overseas citizens organization of the DPRK, is associated with the wise guidance and benevolent love of President KIM IL SUNG and Leader Kim Jong Il.

When the movement of Koreans in Japan was at the crossroads of survival and ruin, President KIM IL SUNG advanced the Juche-oriented policy of making line switchover and formed Chongryon, saying that the Koreans in Japan should work for their homeland and nation and carry on the Korean revolution although they live in Japan. This is the greatest exploit he performed in the history of the movement of Koreans in Japan. We are very proud to recall back the memory of Chongryon's nearly seven decades of glorious history of hard struggle for the sovereignty and dignity of their country — Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea — and for the rights of the Korean people living abroad.

Chongryon is the most significant and dignified association of residents abroad in the whole world and it is the most glorious association, which is struggling hard to achieve prosperity with dignity under the brilliant leadership of the great leader His Excellency KIM JONG UN.

Let us avail ourselves of this opportunity to wish Chongryon through our congratulatory message, great success in its noble mission to achieve human rights of the Korean residents in Japan and to safeguard the sovereignty and dignity of the glorious Fatherland – Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

May 25 was another memorable day when the DPR of Korea successfully tested the self-defensive Second Nuclear Test, in 2009. It has added another pride not only to the just loving heroic Korean people, who are very much proud of their socialism based on popular masses, but also to the world's progressive people, who treasure independence, peace, and dignity.
