Foreigners Praise Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il
Pyongyang, April 10 (KCNA) -- Bangladeshi and Indonesian political figures released statements on April 1 to commemorate the birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung and the 18th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's election as chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission.

Rashed Khan Menon, chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Bangladesh, and Hasanul Huq Inu, chairman of the Central Executive Committee of the Bangladesh National Socialist Party, said in a joint statement that Kim Il Sung founded the immortal Juche idea, brightly illuminating the path to be taken by mankind. He also brought into a reality the centuries-old desire of the Korean people to live in a new world free from all kinds of exploitation and suppression, the statement added.

Today the Songun politics pursued by Kim Jong Il is instilling great strength and courage into the revolutionary people of the world in their endeavors to firmly defend socialist Korea from the moves of the imperialists to stifle it and live in a new independent world, it noted.

Dilip Barua, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Bangladesh (Marxist-Leninist), said in a statement that thanks to the brilliant ideological and theoretical activities and revolutionary practices of Kim Il Sung the DPRK has turned into a powerful socialist state, adding that the socialist and independent forces standing against imperialism have grown stronger in the international arena.

Kim Jong Il's election as chairman of the NDC of the DPRK was a very significant historic event in realizing global independence, he said.
