Jesus Antonio Carlos Hernandez, general secretary of the C.C., the People's Socialist Party of Mexico, said in a speech:

Eternal General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea Kim Jong Il was a distinguished thinker and theoretician.

He was also an elder statesman who firmly protected the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK and rescued the global movement of socialism by pursuing the original Songun politics.

We sincerely hope that the Korean people would register big successes in their struggle for building a thriving nation and achieving the independent and peaceful reunification of the country under the Songun revolutionary leadership of Kim Jong Un.

Alpha Cabinet Keita, commander of the first commando force of the Almami Samori Toure barracks of the Guinean Army lauded Kim Jong Il as the greatest man who dedicated his all to the victorious advance of the socialist cause in the DPRK and the cause of global independence.

As the Korean people holds Kim Jong Un in high esteem as their supreme leader, the undying exploits performed by the preceding leaders will shine forever, he added.
