Rodong Sinmun on Kim Jong Il's Feats on National Reunification
Pyongyang, December 6 (KCNA) -- The lifelong efforts made by leader Kim Jong Il for the country's reunification and great national unity and the feats he performed in carrying out the sacred cause of independent reunification are shedding their rays forever in the history of the country, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in an article.

The article goes on:

Kim Jong Il published famous works to formulate the three principles of national reunification, the ten-point programme for great national unity and the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo as the three charters for national reunification and made sure that the idea and line of President Kim Il Sung on national reunification display the eternal vitality in the reunification movement.

He provided the north-south summit for the first time in the history of division and saw to it that the June 15 joint declaration the basic spirit of which is the idea of "By our nation itself" was adopted.

Another historic north-south summit was held and the October 4 declaration, the programme for implementing the June 15 joint declaration, was adopted amid the dynamic advance of the era of the independent reunification, paving a wide avenue for the development of the north-south relations, peace and prosperity.

Under the banner of Songun put up by the Workers' Party of Korea the DPRK leaped to the center stage of the world as a country manufacturing and launching satellites and a nuclear weapons state. Gone are the days never to return when the imperialists threatened the DPRK with nuclear weapons. Korean people from all walks of life in the north and the south and abroad, feeling the national pride and self-esteem in the great vitality of the Songun politics, have made a nationwide march for national unity and reunification, positively supporting the DPRK's just line and policy for national reunification.

It was thanks to the wise guidance and total devotion of Kim Jong Il that the cause of independent reunification could triumphantly advance despite all ordeals and storms of history.
