Grand performance given in presence of President of State Affairs Kim Jong Un
  A grand performance for celebrating the 70th anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War was given at twelve o'clock midnight on July 27.
  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, appreciated the performance.
  Before appreciating the performance, he warmly greeted Li Hongzhong, Member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and Vice-Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of the People's Republic of China on a visit to the DPRK on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the great war victory, and conversed with him in a friendly atmosphere.
  Li Hongzhong, who visited Pyongyang leading the party and government delegation of China, courteously conveyed a letter of Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and President of the People's Republic of China, to Kim Jong Un, on the occasion of the V-Day.
  Kim Jong Un expressed thanks for it and extended his heartfelt thanks to Xi Jinping.
  He said to Li Hongzhong, head of the party and government delegation of China: Our V-Day July 27 has come to shine all the more since we are celebrating the common holiday of the peoples of the DPRK and China together. Xi Jinping has sent the party and government delegation to Pyongyang in such an important period and it demonstrates his will in attaching great importance to the DPRK-China friendship.
  No matter how many years may go by and no matter how many times the generations may change, the Korean people will never forget the precious blood shed by the Chinese People's Volunteers for war victory and their noble spirit and soul. The WPK and the DPRK government will, in the future, too, make efforts to further strengthen the friendship and solidarity with the fraternal Chinese people and always advance hand in hand with the Chinese people in the struggle for socialism.
  When Kim Jong Un came out to the auditorium of the theatre together with the heads of the delegations, stormy cheers shook the theatre.
  Pretty children presented him with fragrant bouquets.
  The delegation heads were also presented with bouquets of friendship.
  The performance was appreciated by members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, senior officials of the Party, the government and the military, war veterans, persons of wartime merits and other participants in the celebrations.
  Invited to enjoy the performance were members of the party and government delegation of the People's Republic of China and the military delegation of the Russian Federation.
  The grand performance was given by major art organizations including the State Merited Chorus, the Band of the State Affairs Commission and the Wangjaesan Art Troupe, and artistes and students of civilian and military art organizations and art educational institutions.
  It started with the prelude "Tell, Fireworks Display for the War Victory" and "July 27, Our Victory Day". Put on the stage were wartime songs, songs in praise of the war victory, songs of faith sung in the decades of succession and various other programs.
  The performers highly praised the tremendous exploits of the great leader Kim Il Sung who trained the Korean people as the most powerful persons with the indomitable spirit and matchless strength of punishing the imperialist tyranny and created the history of miraculous victory admired by humanity in the grim period with the extreme arrogance and arbitrariness of the would-be world's "strongest" US imperialists, and thus effected a fierce storm of revolution for anti-imperialist independence and national liberation.
  Performers also sang a series of Chinese and Russian songs they specially prepared for the goodwill envoys who have visited Pyongyang.
  The performance ended with the epilogue "People Offer Glory to Our Party" and "July 27, Our Victory Day".
  Kim Jong Un congratulated the performers on their successful performance with his warm acknowledgement.
