PYONGYANG, January 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Officials from various North Korean ministries and agencies, and members of the labour staffs attended a concert, which a well-known Eunhasu Symphony Orchestra (the Milky Way) gave at the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre on Sunday. The concert was dedicated to ‘the immoral merits’ of Kim Jong Il for the Korean nation, the KCNA news agency reported. Kim died of a heart attack during an inspection trip on December 17.
The symphony orchestra, the chorus and the soloists performed such famous North Korean compositions as “The Cantata about Our Comrade Kim Jong Il”, “His Life”, “We are Feeling Sorrow about Our General,” “The Might of Korea”. These pieces of music had a strong emotional influence on the spectators.
All these musical compositions “reflect the determination of the Korean people to pool efforts in the struggle for the prosperity of the nation, which was led by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il,” KCNA reported. KCNA reported that Kim Jong Un did not attend the concert. However, the North Korean central television showed the new North Korean leader, when he was watching the military exercises and was steering a tank. It is not ruled out that these television footages were timed to Kim Il Un’s birthday, though the North Korean mass media did not mention this date yet. Kim Il Un inspected the 105th tank division as the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Korean People’s Army on January 1, KCNA reported.
It is noteworthy that the late North Korean leader has made his first inspection trip in the previous year to this tank division, congratulating its staff on coming New Year. This military unit was named after a Korean warrior Ryu Kyong Su, who was distinguished during the Korean War (1950-1953).
