Respected Comrade Chou En-lai,
Dear Guests from China,
Dear Comrades and Friends:

   Today, with feelings of joy we welcome in our capital Pyongyang our close friend Comrade Premier Chou En-lai.
   At this banquet filled with feelings of fraternal friendship, I, in the name of the Central Committee of the Korean Workers' Party, the Government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and all the* Korean people, once again extend my warm welcome to Comrade Premier and the distinguished Chinese guests accompanying you on this visit.
   Korea and China are friendly neighbours linked together as blood and flesh and the people of the two countries are brothers bound by deep-rooted friendship ties.
   To oppose imperialism and strive for freedom and national independence, the people of our two countries have traversed the path of protracted, arduous and difficult struggle and in the course of it shed a great deal of blood.
   Under the banner of resistance to Japan, the communists and revolutionary workers and peasants of Korea and China have struggled together arms in arms against their common enemy, Japanese imperialism. During the Korean war, the people of the two countries fought shoulder to shoulder in the same trench against the joint forces of world reaction headed by U.S. imperialism.
   The Korean and Chinese people have realized through real life that the struggles of the people of the two countries against imperialist aggression and in defence of the security of their countries and the victorious fruits of their revolutions are closely linked together.
   In the past, the people of our two countries achieved victory in struggle by relying on the strength of unity; hereafter, we will also struggle shoulder to shoulder to seize victory.
   The achievements of the people of the two countries in revolution and construction have further increased our strength.
   Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China headed by Comrade Mao Tsetung, the fraternal
Chinese people launched a fierce struggle against foreign imperialist aggressors and domestic reactionary forces and won the great victory of the Chinese revolution.
   The victory of the Chinese revolution and the founding of the People's Republic of China are the fundamental turning point in the history of the Chinese people and an epoch-making event which has dealt a heavy blow at the imperialist forces of the world and made the situation in Asia develop in a direction favourable to peace and socialism. The Chinese people who have embarked on the road of creating a new life have devoted all their strength to achieving greater, faster, better and more economical results in promoting socialist construction, and have carried out the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, unfolded the struggle for strengthening national defence and won tremendous achievements.
   The Korean people wish the Chinese people new achievements in the struggle to build socialism in future.
   Today, under the leadership of our Party, the people of our country are continuing to realize completely the revolutionary line of independence, self-sustenance and self-defence and are vigorously promoting socialist construction.
   On the basis of the great social and economic changes already achieved, we are struggling for strengthening more solidly the revolutionary base of the northern part of the republic and for completing the historic task of unification of the fatherland.
   The people of our country will never forget the lofty internationalist support given by the fraternal Chinese people in the difficult days during the war for the liberation of our fatherland and during post-war reconstruction, and are grateful for their support to and solidarity with the Korean people's struggle for the unification of the fatherland:
   This support and solidarity given by the Chinese people will be for ever engraved in the hearts of the Korean people.
Comrades and friends!
   U.S. imperialism is carrying out in an intensified manner armed aggression and sabotage activities against the socialist countries and the new-born independent countries and is savagely suppressing the people's liberation struggles. The present situation calls for joint efforts of the revolutionary people to cope with it.
   U.S. imperial ism is now turning its spearhead of aggression to Asia, carrying out conspiratorial activities, and trying to muster the Japanese militarist forces and the satellite countries and puppets in Asia in a vain attempt to realize its aggressive ambition by making Asians fight Asians.
   The Japanese militarist forces which have been revived by U.S. imperialism single-handedly are further speeding up the process of militarization and fascistization of Japan, and are flagrantly marching on the path of aggression against the Asian people. Japan has become the outpost position and base for aggressive wars In Asia.
   U.S. imperialism and the Japanese militarist forces are colluding with each other, vigorously pushing the policy of colonial plunder of south Korea and of turning it into a military base, attempting still more frenziedly to unleash a war of aggression in Korea, pursuing a policy of hostility towards the People's Republic of China and being obstinately bent on plotting to create "two Chinas."
   Under the guise of the "Vietnamization" of the war, U.S. imperialism is intensifying its war of aggression against Viet Nam and is gradually expanding its armed intervention in Laos. It fostered the Rightist reactionary forces in Cambodia to stage a coup d'etat not long ago with the aim to turn the country to the right. I
   But no matter how desperately they may struggle,; U.S. imperialism and Japanese imperialism cannot check the revolutionary struggle of the people in this area; and will never succeed in their objective of aggression in' Asia. The time has changed and Asia of today is no longer the Asia of the past. Should U.S. imperialism and Japanese imperialism forget the historical lesson and dare to launch a new adventurous war of aggression again, then the Korean people will, as in the past, together with the Chinese people, fight against the enemy to the end in defence of the victorious gains of socialism and in defence of peace in Asia and the rest of the world.
   U.S. imperialism will be driven out of south Korea, Taiwan and other places of Asia sooner or later as a result of the staunch struggle of the Korean people, the Chinese people and other Asian people.
   The Korean people consider it their sacred internationalist duty to actively support the revolutionary struggle of all peoples against U.S. imperialism.
   The people of our country resolutely oppose the criminal war of aggression conducted by U.S. imperialism against Viet Nam, and actively support the heroic Vietnamese people in their just struggle.
   Our people firmly support the Cuban people in their valiant struggle for smashing the incessant aggressive activities of U.S. imperialism so as to defend the revolutionary fruits of victory and for carrying on socialist construction successfully.
   The Korean people condemn the U.S. imperialists for their armed intervention against Laos and actively support the Laotian people's struggle for national independence.
   Our people actively support the Arab people's just struggle against the armed aggression by U.S. imperialism and its lackey, Zionism, and for defending their national independence and dignify, recovering the lost Arab land and realizing the liberation of the Palestinian people.
   The Korean people voice their support to and militant solidarity with the people in various parts of the world for their struggle against U.S. imperialism and colonialism and for freedom and emancipation.
   Our people will continue hereafter to hold aloft the banner of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism and the revolutionary banner of the anti-imperialist and anti-U.S. struggle, to unite with the people of socialist countries and with the revolutionary people in Asia, Africa and Latin America and all the progressive people the world over and to fight staunchly for peace, democracy and national independence and for the triumph of the common cause of socialism.
Respected Comrade Premier Chou En-lal,
   You have come to visit our country at a time when U.S. and Japanese imperialism is carrying out more flagrantly conspiratorial activities of aggression and war.
   We believe that your visit to our country will make a new contribution to the further consolidation and development of the relations of friendship and co-operation between Korea and China in the interest of the common cause of our two peoples.
   I propose a toast to
   the unbreakable friendship and unity between the peoples of Korea and China,
   the prosperity and growth of the People's Republic of China,
   the militant unity of the world's revolutionary people who are struggling against imperialism headed by U.S. imperialism,
   the health of Comrade Mao Tsetung,
   the health of Comrade Chou En-lai,
   the health of the distinguished Chinese guests,
   the health of the diplomatic envoys of various countries, and
   the health of all the comrades present.
