Papers Laud Kim Jong Il as Eternal Sun of Korean People
Pyongyang, December 17 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il is the great image of the great Paektusan nation, great power of the DPRK and eternal sun of the Korean people, papers editorially say on Tuesday, the 2nd anniversary of demise of Kim Jong Il.

Rodong Sinmun praises Kim Jong Il as an outstanding leader, peerless patriot and peerlessly great man who dedicated his all to the country and the nation.

Kim Jong Il's revolutionary career was the one of a peerlessly great man who clearly indicated the road of eternal victory to be followed by the Korean people and the one of an illustrious brilliant commander who firmly defended the dignity and sovereignty of the country and its people with the arms of Songun, notes the editorial, adding:

His life was the one of the father of people totally dedicated to the happiness and prosperity of the generations to come.

It is the greatest exploits performed by him that he paved a wide avenue for the Korean people to win one victory after another in the new era of Juche-oriented revolution on the basis of the unitary idea and center.

The People's Army has developed into an invincible and powerful revolutionary Paektusan army and socialist Korea has turned into a world military power and a full-fledged nuclear weapons state and the Korean people have, accordingly, demonstrated their dignity as an independent people whom no force dare provoke. This is a brilliant fruition of the Songun revolutionary leadership of Kim Jong Il.

Basing himself on the noble outlook on life "Let us live not merely for today but for tomorrow!" he performed great exploits which no other great man in the world could ever do.

As the Korean people hold high the respected Kim Jong Un at the helm of the revolution, the idea and exploits of Kim Jong Il will always shed their rays.

Minju Joson says President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, the heart of all service personnel and people and the eternal sun of the great Paektusan nation, wish them a rosy future, calling on them to successfully carry out the lifelong intentions and desire of Kim Jong Il, united closer around Marshal Kim Jong Un.
