To Our Women’s Soccer Players Who Have Won the 2015 EAFF Women’s East Asia Cup
I extend warm congratulations to you, our proud and trustworthy women’s soccer players, for having chalked up one victory after another and secured the first place in the 2015 EAFF Women’s East Asia Cup.
You have wonderfully lived up to the expectations of the Party, the country and the people that our women’s soccer players would emerge a victor without fail.
You have played the games by giving play to your indomitable spiritual strength and employing the attacking tactics advanced by our Party and thus written an amazing sports story.
By causing the blue and red flag of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to be hoisted at the tournament, you have demonstrated to the whole world the prestige and mettle of the powerful Juche country shining together with the names of the great Comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and prepared a proud gift dedicated to the 70th anniversaries of the liberation of the country and the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
On behalf of our Party, the Government of the DPRK and all the service personnel and people, I once again offer warm congratulations and militant greetings to you, the laudable daughters of the country and the people.
The whole country is waiting for you.
Return home quickly in good health.
