Kim Il Sung's Personality Moves World People
Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung in his lifetime had shown great magnanimity even for foreigners with shameful career. That's why they deeply revered him as their teacher and as an elder statesman.

Among them was Yoshiko Otaka, member of the House of Councilors of Japan, who visited the DPRK in July Juche 64 (1975) for the first time as a member of the Japanese delegation of influential lawmakers from the Liberal Democratic Party.

President Kim Il Sung met the delegation for hours and arranged a dinner for it. During the dinner, he said there should be songs and dances in human life, thus calming down Yoshiko Otaka who was at a loss what to do because she engaged herself in comforting the Japanese aggression army in Korea and Manchuria when young.

She was moved to tears by such broad-minded magnanimity of the President holding the present more important than the past.

Later, Yoshiko Otaka wrote in her memoirs that she had neither met nor heard of such leader as Kim Il Sung with broad-minded magnanimity and noble personality and that he was the peerlessly great man revered by the world.

Sin Kanemaru, former vice-president of the Liberal-Democratic Party of Japan, was one of those foreign statesmen who got enchanted by Kim Il Sung's personality when meeting with him in Pyongyang.

After returning home from Pyongyang, Sin Kanemaru told reporters: It was a very impressive visit, though so belatedly. I dare say that I was moved to tears by President Kim Il Sung's personality. I will do my best to repay him for his trust, and this is my last mission as a statesman.

As seen above, Kim Il Sung was the great sun embracing all people.
