Kim Il Sung Remembered in Foreign Countries
Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- Remembrance meetings were held in Peru, Democratic Congo and Egypt from July 5 to 8 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of demise of President Kim Il Sung.

On display in the venues of the meetings were works of the peerlessly great persons, photos on their undying exploits and books and photos on the advantages of Korean-style socialism.

Speeches were made there.

Genaro Ledesma Izquieta, chairman of the People's Front of Workers, Peasants and Students of Peru, spoke of the emotion he had when he was received by the President during his visit to the DPRK, noting that Kim Il Sung was a great statesman and a prominent leader recognized by the world.

Thanks to the solid foundation laid by Kim Il Sung, the DPRK could frustrate the moves stepped up by the U.S. to stifle it, styling itself the world's "only superpower," and demonstrate the might of a politico-ideological power and military power to the whole world, he added.

Otete Gaston Mboyo, chairman of the National Committee of the Genuine Lumumbist Patriotic Party of Democratic Congo, said that Kim Il Sung would always live in the hearts of the world progressive people as he founded the immortal Juche idea, clearly indicating the road to be followed by humankind in the era of independence and building a socialist system centered on the popular masses in Korea.

Yehia Zakaria Khairullah, chairman of the Egyptian Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea, said that the revolutionary cause of Juche started by Kim Il Sung has been successfully carried forward by General Secretary Kim Jong Il. The Korean people under his Songun leadership will surely build a great prosperous and powerful socialist nation in Korea and achieve the cause of national reunification without fail, he stressed.
