The Korean people are advancing the cause of socialism under the leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea which organizes and guides them to all the victories.
The Seventh Congress of the WPK held in May Juche 105 (2016) served as an epoch-making event for strengthening its leadership remarkably.
The Korean people achieved many successes in the vigorous struggle for implementing the line of building a socialist power advanced by the Seventh Congress of the WPK.
However, they had to face unexpected challenges and trials in this historic course.
The hostile forces resorted to evermore vicious anti-DPRK moves to check the road of the Korean people. The latter had to cope with a grim situation when a war might break out. Worse still, they were faced with the onset of the global health crisis and unprecedentedly severe natural disasters that swept over the country one after another.
But, the WPK did not flinch even an inch from the struggle for safeguarding the people’s safety and happiness and the national sovereignty. It possessed a powerful war deterrent whereby any hostile forces will never be able to belittle the DPRK by leading the people and the army and built many ever-lasting monuments for the people’s wellbeing. It established a preemptive and thoroughgoing national emergency system for preventing the inflow of epidemic disease. It dispatched Party members in the capital city and soldiers of the Korean People’s Army to flood- and typhoon-stricken areas to build new houses, thus turning adversity into blessings.
The completely fresh military parade, celebration meeting, public procession and torchlight procession took place in October to celebrate the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK, fully demonstrating again the dignity and prestige of the Party and the State and the might of single-hearted unity.
The overall power and strategic position of the DPRK that reached a high level and the worthwhile life of the Korean people are unthinkable apart from the leadership of the WPK for it has led the struggle of the Korean people for safeguarding the dignity and sovereignty of the country and the nation and building a socialist power under the banner of the Juche idea.
The Sixth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh WPK Central Committee held in August decided to convene the Eighth Congress of the WPK in January 2021 with a view to advancing new lines and strategic and tactical policies to cope with the developing revolution and the prevailing situation.
The decision is a manifestation of confidence of the WPK which organizes and leads the overall activities of the Party and the State to a new, higher stage and an expression of its strong will to perform its responsibility, shouldering the future of the State.
The Korean people are making vigorous efforts to significantly greet the Eighth Party Congress with absolute support to and trust in the WPK which invariably guides the revolutionary cause of Juche along the road of victory and glory.
