Pyongyang, October 31 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il received a message on Oct. 17 from the participants in an inaugural ceremony of the Asian-Pacific regional preparatory committee for commemorating the centenary of birth of President Kim Il Sung held in Pakistan.

The birth of the President was a great fortune not only for the Korean people but for the world progressive people, the message noted, adding that to significantly commemorate the centenary of his birth is a sacred work for the participants of the ceremony who work hard to build a new world, just, peaceful and prosperous.

We will widely introduce in various forms and ways the career of Kim Il Sung and exploits performed by him so that louder voices praising him may be heard in the Asia-Pacific region, the message noted, expressing belief that under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il the Korean people would surely fling open the gate to a great prosperous and powerful nation in 2012.
