Humankind Will Always Remember Immortal Exploits of Kim Jong Il

Pyongyang, December 30 (KCNA) -- The France-Korea Friendship Association posted an article praising the immortal revolutionary exploits of leader Kim Jong Il on its Internet homepage on December 24 on the 20th anniversary of his assumption of supreme commandership of the Korean People's Army and the 94th anniversary of birth of anti-Japanese war hero Kim Jong Suk.

The life of Kim Jong Il was the noble one dedicated to building a prosperous and powerful country, achieving national reunification and defending the sovereignty and dignity of the country, the article said, and continued:

Kim Jong Il held higher the banner of Songun under the unprecedentedly hard and difficult situation created due to the repeated natural disasters, the moves and sanctions of the imperialist allied forces to stifle the DPRK after the demise of President Kim Il Sung, a great loss to the nation.

True to the last instructions of the President, Kim Jong Il formulated the three charters for national reunification for realizing the independent and peaceful reunification of Korea and provided north-south summits in Pyongyang in June 2000 and October 2007, making a great contribution to promoting reconciliation and peaceful reunification of the Korean nation.

He raised the international authority and position of the DPRK through his energetic external activities.

The Korean people and progressive humankind will always remember the immortal exploits of Kim Jong Il with profound memory.
