KPA Vice Marshal Ri Yong Ho, chief of the KPA General Staff, made an opening address.
Generalissimo Kim Il Sung laid down the line and policy on building the Juche-based defence industry and wisely led the struggle for implementing them, Ri said, and continued:
Leader Kim Jong Il worked heart and soul for rapidly developing the DPRK's defence industry into a cutting-edge industry capable of manufacturing any modern arms and equipment as it wishes.
The conversion of the DPRK into a matchless military power is the greatest feat the President and the leader performed on behalf of the country and the revolution.
A grim situation is prevailing at present due to the reckless moves of the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet group of traitors for a war of aggression against the DPRK, but the security of the Songun country will be firmly guaranteed as long as there are the self-defensive revolutionary armed forces which have been built thanks to the undying feats of the great persons of Mt.
