Chairwoman of General Association of Koreans in China Interviewed by KCNA
Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- Choe Un Bok, chairwoman of the General Association of Koreans in China, on a visit to the DPRK to commemorate the 20th anniversary of demise of President Kim Il Sung was interviewed by KCNA on Monday.

The Korean people were put under the yoke of colonial slavery as they were not under an outstanding leader in the past. But they could greet the national rebirth and new era of prosperity as they held Kim Il Sung in high esteem as their leader, the chairwoman said, adding:

The President embarked on the road of revolution in his early years and led the arduous anti-Japanese war to a victory and achieved the liberation of the country. He turned the DPRK into a socialist power independent in politics, self-supporting in economy and self-reliant in national defence. These were the greatest exploits performed by him for the country and its people and the happiness of the generations to come.

The President, regarding believing in people as in Heaven as his motto, always mixed with people and shared weal and woe with them. He energetically worked for the happiness of the people and the country's reunification to the last moments of his life.

As the President's feats are so great, the reverence of not only the Koreans in the homeland but also of those abroad and world progressives for him is growing more ardent and profound with the passage of time.

The President's life, indeed, represents the history of the sun which brings the Korean people worthwhile life and happiness and humankind a bright future.

Kim Il Sung, the leader of the people and sun of humankind, will be always alive in the hearts of all people.

The revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered by the President is being successfully carried forward by supreme leader Kim Jong Un.

Thanks to his leadership, the history of the President, the sun of Juche, will last forever.
