Highly Praised by Director-general of IIJI
Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- Vishwanath, director-general of the International Institute of the Juche Idea, was interviewed by KCNA correspondent in New Delhi on April 3 on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung.

Pyongyang is the birth place of the President and a holy city which houses the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in which the President lies in state, he said, and continued:

When I pay tribute to him at the palace, I feel fresh strength rising up in my whole body.

Because I feel as if Kim Il Sung were still encouraging me and showing loving care for me in all aspects just as he had instilled strength and courage into me whenever he met me.

He was, indeed, a great sage who embraced and took care of all the people with the rays and heat of the sun.

He was a great man born of Heaven who came down to the earth to save oppressed and maltreated people.

I more keenly felt his love for the people whenever I met Kim Il Sung.

I was completely fascinated by him, keenly realizing that he was a great sage.

Endowed with boundless love for the people, Kim Il Sung founded such great Juche idea centered on man and freed them from the yoke of oppression and made the DPRK tower on the earth as a country which values independence and justice.
