Kim Jong Un, general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and president of the State Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, visited the Friendship Tower on July 28 on the occasion of the great war victory day.
He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, Pak Jong Chon, Ri Pyong Chol, Ri Il Hwan, Ri Yong Gil, Jong Kyong Thaek, Ri Thae Sop, Kim Song Nam, Ri Son Gwon and Choe Son Hui.
A wreath in the name of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un was laid at the tower amid the playing of the wreath-laying music.
Also laid there were wreaths in the name of the WPK Central Committee and the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK.
Written on the ribbons of the wreaths were the letters “Martyrs of the Chinese People’s Volunteers will always be alive.”
Kim Jong Un paid high tribute to the martyrs of the Chinese People’s Volunteers (CPV) who unsparingly shed their valuable blood in the same trench for repulsing the imperialist aggression for the sake of the common cause.
There was a march past of the guard of honour of the Korean People’s Army.
Kim Jong Un went round the Friendship Tower together with cadres accompanied.
He stressed that the brilliant military merits and feats of the CPV officers and men, obviously recorded in the history of the great victory in the Fatherland Liberation War, would be immortal and that the DPRK-China friendship, sealed in blood and further cemented in all sorts of trying ordeals of history, would be carried forward and developed generation after generation along with the dynamic advance of the socialist cause.
