Journey of devoted service

June 29, 2024

June 29 2016 is the day when the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un was elected President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Eight years have passed since then.

Marking the day, the Korean people are looking back upon the journey of devoted service for the people made by the respected General Secretary.

The journey is consistent with the spirit of boundlessly devoted service for the people.

When the country was confronted with a trial due to the worldwide spread of COVID-19 in May two years ago, he defended the destiny of the people by braving it.

When everyone was confused by the unexpectedly great turmoil since the founding of the DPRK, he unhesitatingly visited pharmacies in the capital city at night to learn about the situation though the danger of the malignant epidemic did not pass, with the will to defend the people’s happiness and stability to the last. At a consultative meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, he issued a special order of the Central Military Commission of the WPK on stabilizing the supply of medicines in Pyongyang by committing powerful forces of the medics of the Korean People’s Army. 

He sent reserve medicines prepared by his family to needy families and guided the anti-epidemic campaign day and night without a moment’s rest. To him, the people are those that should be defended at the cost of his life and that each one is part of his flesh and blood whom he could and should never lose. During the top emergency anti-epidemic period, he examined 22 956 pages of 1 772 documents for the national anti-epidemic work. 

Thanks to his self-sacrificing devotion and efforts, the DPRK could bring about a miracle of addressing the anti-epidemic crisis in a matter of 90-odd days to be specially recorded in the world health history.

When the country faces manifold hardships and ordeals, he gets closer to the people and warmly embraces them. When the people were suffering from a disaster caused by a sudden flood in Taechong-ri of Unpha County, North Hwanghae Province, he personally drove his car and rushed to the place before any others to protect the lives and destiny of flood victims. Thanks to his intention, all measures were taken for the flood victims. They were offered to stay in the office building of the county Party committee, and new modern dwelling houses were built in the afflicted area which turned into a beautiful village beyond recognition.

It happened not only in Taechong-ri. 

His devotion and efforts have reached every disaster-stricken area including Kangwon Province, Kaesong City and the Komdok area.

His journey is a continuation of the embodiment of the noble outlook on the people and people-first politics of him which spares nothing for the happiness of the people.

He put forward the housing problem whose solution is welcomed and awaited by the people as the cherished work of the Workers’ Party of Korea and made a bold decision despite difficulties of the country, unfolding a grand plan for building 50 000 flats in Pyongyang. Songhwa Street, the Pothong Riverside Terraced Houses District, Hwasong, Rimhung and Jonwi streets, which have been built as ideal streets for the people and flourishing socialist living space, are the fruition of his devoted service for the people.

At present, the respected General Secretary has worked out a grand plan for improving the people’s living standards across the country by setting forth the Regional Development 20×10 Policy for the overall development of socialism, and pressed ahead with it.

Thanks to the wise leadership of him who continues to make a journey for the people with the noble intention of “Everything for the people”, the Korean people’s struggle for the overall development of socialism is being waged more courageously.
