Pyongyang, January 8 (KCNA) -- Kenichi Ogami, secretary general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea, expressed profound reverence for President Kim Il Sung and General Secretary
Kim Jong Il, when interviewed by KCNA on Jan. 6 while staying in the DPRK.

He said:

The great revolutionary idea and noble virtues of the President who is always remembered by humankind serve as a great model of the progressive people struggling to build an independent new world.

Kim Jong Il has enforced the unique Songun policy by carrying forward and developing the President's idea of attaching importance to the military affairs.

Thanks to Kim Jong Il's Songun leadership the Korean people have firmly defended and glorified the ocialist country which the President handed down to them.

The DPRK has performed miracles and innovations, smashing the imperialists' moves for aggression as it is wisely led by Kim Jong Il.

The militant spirit of the Korean people convinces the world progressive people desirous of independence that they are sure to emerge victorious when they struggle in single-minded unity, believing in their own strength.

The world progressives are watching Songun Korea vigorously advancing under the leadership of Kim Jong Il out of envy and greatly encouraged by the spirit of the people of the DPRK.

Socialist Korea will prosper forever as it holds in high esteem Kim Jong Il successfully carrying the President's cause of the revolution to completion.
