On April 13, 1975, President Kim Il Sung met Jose Francisco Aguilar Bulgarelli, chairman of the Costa Rica-Korea Friendship and Culture Association, chairman of the Costa Rica Party of Society and the Costa Rica Journalists Union, who visited Pyongyang for the second time.
During the meeting the chairman asked the President about the role played by the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) in bringing about world-startling socio-economic changes for last 30 years after its foundation and the secret.
He said that over the past 30 years the Korean people have achieved great socio-economic changes, while overcoming all difficulties and trials, under the leadership of WPK our people waged an indomitable struggle and thus have established an advanced socialist system in this land and turned our formerly underdeveloped colonial agrarian country into a socialist industrial state equipped with a powerful heavy industry and modern light industry as well as a developed agriculture.
He made clear that thanks to the correct leadership of the WPK and our people’s creative struggle all these successes have been achieved, our Party has laid down its lines and policies in a unique manner based on independent position and creative stand to meet our country’s specific situation and our people’s interests and carried them through relying on the strength of our own people.
