Saying that only when they are led by a great leader, can the noble feats be handed down to posterity and worthwhile lives be eternal, the speakers noted that the distinguished feats of the generation who won victory in the war are shining more brilliantly under the care of General Secretary Kim Jong Un of the WPK, who boundlessly respects, treasures and puts forward war veterans and cares so much to bestow greater glory and happiness on them.

They said that if only war veterans, personifiers and witnesses of the history of the mightiness and victory of heroic Korea, could live for a long time in good health, it would give great strength to the Party and country, adding the Korean people would steadily carry on the precious spirit and tradition of victory created by them.
