The President had singled out Korea's reunification as the supreme task of the nation from the moment of Korea's division and worked heart and soul to reunify the country till the last moments of his life.

He convened the historic Joint Conference of Representatives of Political Parties and Social Organizations in North and South Korea in Pyongyang in April, 1948.

Fascinated by the great intention, ardent patriotism and noble virtues of the President, a south Korean figure could come out to the struggle for national reunification after reflecting on his whole life against communism.

The President advanced many proposals for national reunification and set forth basic principles and ways for it.

He received lots of compatriots from south Korea and overseas fighting for the independent reunification of Korea.

When a flood hit south Korea, he made sure that a large amount of relief goods were sent to the flood victims.

He showed great loving care for south Koreans.

Therefore, all the Koreans in the north, the south and abroad held him in high esteem as the lodestar of national reunification.
