Kim Jong Il Watches Art Performance
Pyongyang, November 9 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il together with Korean People's Army servicepersons watched a performance given by an art squad of the Ministry of People's Security.

The performers put on the stage colorful numbers of diverse genres including mixed chorus "We Have Longed for You, General", male guitar quintet ensemble "Let's Defend Socialism", choral recital of poem "Long Journey for Devotedly Defending the Leader" and small chorus "Do Prosper the Workers' Party Era".

The performance successfully represented the iron faith and will of the people's security persons to always share the idea, will and destiny with Kim Jong Il and breathe the same breath with him and creditably perform their honorable mission as the first line unit in the class struggle and interior forces of the supreme commander despite any storm and stress and thus defend the most advantageous socialist system centering on the popular masses as firm as an iron wall.

When the performance was over, Kim Jong Il warmly acknowledged the enthusiastic cheers of the performers and audience and congratulated the performers on their successful performance.
