I deem it my highest pride to participate in the festival, which is held on the occasion of President Kim Il Sung's 100th birth anniversary.

The festival serves as an event which helps deepen friendly feelings between peoples of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and other countries.

It is out of deep reverence for Kim Il Sung that a number of artistes are participating in the festival.

Kim Il Sung is always alive in the hearts not only of the Korean people but the Chinese people and other world's progressives.

We came here with top-level acrobatic pieces worthy to represent China's overall circus.

I sincerely hope that the festival will be held in a larger scale in the future.
