Kim Jong Il Praised by Personages of Bangladesh, Myanmar
Pyongyang, February 11 (KCNA) -- Figures of Bangladesh and Myanmar issued statements on February 4 and 5 on the occasion of the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il (Day of the Shining Star).

M. Jahangir Khan, chairman of the Bangladesh Group for the Study of the Songun Policy, said:

Kim Jong Il was a peerless statesman and iron-willed commander who comprehensively developed in depth the Juche idea founded by President Kim Il Sung and remarkably bolstered the national power of socialist Korea with his unique Songun politics.

He smashed the imperialists' moves to stifle the DPRK by dint of Songun and turned the DPRK into an invincible power and nuclear weapons state, making an immortal contribution to accomplishing the global cause of independence.

The general director of a Myanmar publishing house said:

Kim Jong Il was the great leader and benevolent father of the Korean people, who was born in the secret camp of Mt. Paektu and made the toughest forced march till the last moments of his life for the prosperity of the country and happiness of the people.

By carrying forward the cause of Kim Il Sung, he thoroughly applied Kim Il Sung's idea to the revolution and construction, developing the party, state and army of the DPRK into the party, state and army of the leader and putting the dignity of the nation and the power of the DPRK on the highest level.

We are sure that the great idea and cause of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il will be certainly accomplished under the wise leadership of HE Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Korean people.
