Kim Il Sung Praised by Ethiopian Paper
Pyongyang, June 29 (KCNA) -- The Ethiopian paper Reporter on June 14 carried a special write-up illustrated with a portrait of smiling President Kim Il Sung on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of his demise.

In an article titled "Prominent leader in the 20th century" it said:

The upcoming July 8 is the 20th anniversary of demise of the President.

He is always alive in the hearts of progressive mankind in the world as the prominent leader representing the 20th century.

He was a great master of ideology and theory who ushered in the era of independence and guaranteed the victorious advance of the cause of independence by founding the Juche Idea and the Songun idea.

He founded the DPRK, the first people's democratic state in the East, in the land of Korea after its liberation, inflicted an ignominious defeat upon the U.S. in the Korean war and built a socialist power independent in politics, self-supporting in economy and self-reliant in national defence on the ruins of the war.

He was a great leader of the world revolution who led the anti-imperialist cause of independence along the only road of victory all his life.

He was a peerless elder statesman with the noblest traits boundlessly revered by all people.
