Today is the 65th anniversary of the founding of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon), a dignified overseas compatriots’ organization.

The last 65 years covered by Chongryon is a history of great victories brought by the idea of the peerlessly great persons of Mt Paektu on the Juche-based movement of overseas compatriots and their outstanding leadership, which is adorned with their noble love for the compatriots and nation.

The great leader’s ideas and leadership are the foremost lifeline of Chongryon’s existence and activities and a source of its invincibility.

President Kim Il Sung created an original ideology and theory on the movement of overseas compatriots for the first time in history and realized them creditably in the movement of Korean residents in Japan, thus bringing about a drastic turn in carving out their destiny.

Chairman Kim Jong Il had paid deep attention to the development of Chongryon and the destiny of Koreans in Japan from the beginning of his revolutionary leadership and led the movement of Koreans in Japan only to victory with his extraordinary ideological and theoretical sagacity and wise leadership.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un clarified in detail the tasks and ways to put the movement of Koreans in Japan on a new high stage in conformity with the changing situation and a shift in generation.

Indeed, the peerlessly great persons of Mt Paektu are great leaders and benevolent fathers who safeguarded the destiny of Chongryon officials and Koreans in Japan with lofty trust and obligation and enabled them to lead a genuine life loving their country and nation.

Thanks to their leadership, Chongryon has developed into a true overseas civic organization of our Republic which shares weal and woe with its socialist country.

As Chongryon is blessed by the peerlessly great persons of Mt Paektu and defended and looked after by our country of Juche, no violent storms can check the advance of this invincible rank rallied firmly around the DPRK.
