Rodong Sinmun on Feats Performed by Great Men for Reunification
Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- The country's reunification is the lifelong desire of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and the national task to be carried out by the present generation, Rodong Sinmun Friday says in a bylined article.

It goes on:

The great Generalissimos had worked heart and soul to hand down a reunified country to the compatriots.

After the liberation of the country, the April south-north joint conference was held with an attendance of representatives of various political parties and factions of the north and the south, a nation-wide patriotic struggle was waged against the moves of reactionaries at home and abroad to divide the country into two parts, a breakthrough was made in the frozen inter-Korean relations and the July 4 joint statement was adopted to lay down a fundamental principle for reunification. This was a shining fruition of President Kim Il Sung's rare wisdom and strong will for the country's reunification.

Towards the 1990s of the last century, the movement for the country's reunification was developed into a nation-wide one through solidarity among the north, the south and overseas sides and an atmosphere for reunification mounted on a nation-wide scale. This would be unthinkable without the President's wise leadership and indefatigable efforts.

Kim Jong Il formulated the three principles of national reunification, the ten-point programme for the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo advanced by Kim Il Sung as the three charters for national reunification and provided a solid cornerstone for carrying out his behests for national reunification.

Kim Jong Il provided the June 15 joint declaration, ushering in a new era of independent reunification and leading it to victory.

The dear respected Kim Jong Un identical to the great Generalissimos is steering the cause of national reunification.

He is providing patriotic leadership over it with an iron-will to certainly carry out their last instructions of the country's reunification.

His outstanding and tested leadership provides a sure guarantee for accomplishing the historic cause of the country's reunification.
