Kim Jong Il's Exploits Lauded by Personages of Kuwait, Myanmar
Pyongyang, February 16 (KCNA) -- Personages of Kuwait and Myanmar issued statements on February 4 and 10 on the occasion of the birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il.

Yousfe Al Amiri, president of the Kuwait House of Works who doubles as chairman of the Kuwait-DPRK Friendship Association, said that he recollected with deep emotion the life of Kim Jong Il, longing for him, on February 16 every year. He went on:

Kim Jong Il assumed the responsibility for the Korean revolution in the hardest period and resolutely smashed the imperialist allied forces' moves to collapse the DPRK.

Socialist Korea turned into a political and military power and impregnable fortress thanks to his iron-will, gifted military strategy and far-sightedness.

The Songun politics of the DPRK is successfully being carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un.

The DPRK's political and military might has been further strengthened and great successes made in the struggle for building a thriving nation thanks to his extraordinary political ability, matchless pluck and policy of loving the people.

We believe that the north-south relations would be improved and peace and security on the Korean peninsula firmly ensured under his wise leadership.

Tin Tun, director of the Myanmar Medical Research Institute, praised Kim Jong Il as the people's leader who performed immortal exploits in the struggle for building a thriving nation and reunifying the country.
