Now the Korean people, united single-mindedly under the wise leadership of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, the President of the State Affairs of the DPRK, have turned out as one in the struggle to achieve a new victory in socialist construction by overcoming all challenges and difficulties in the spirit of self-reliance.
Miracles and innovations are created every day in implementing the new five-year plan for national economic development, which is to provide the people with more stable and civilized living conditions by thoroughly implementing the decisions made at the 8th Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
The challenges of hostile forces continue unabated and the difficulties encountered are enormous, yet no one can stop the advance of our people firmly rallied around the leader in a single-minded unity, and we will surely achieve prosperity of the country by dint of self-reliance and self-development.
I send my warm greetings to the Ugandan people who, as ever, support and encourage the struggle of the Korean people for speeding up the building of a powerful socialist country and safeguarding peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the region.
