Subject: On the slogans of the 6th Korean Workers’ Party Congress
Regarding the 630 statement:
The slogans of the congress deal with more than 110 topics encompassing almost all fields of internal and reunification policies.
10 slogans deal with foreign political and international issues, and only two of these from the referenced statement mention the socialist countries. Just as the three page slogan publication in the Rodong Sinmun, these are also lacking in references to Marxism-Leninism, and ‘instead’ only use the concepts of “juche” and “independence.”
In my opinion, the slogans are the outline of the report on the 6th Congress.
As soon as we get the foreign language translations of the slogans, we will send them to Central.

The Hungarian Embassy in North Korea reports that the slogans of the 6th Korean Workers' Party Congress are "lacking in references to Marxism-Leninism, and instead only use the concepts of 'juche' and 'independence'.”
