The rector of the Cotonou Institute of Journalism of Benin who is chief of the Benin Group for the Study of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism said in a lecture:

President Kim Il Sung is the founder of the DPRK.

He had a far-reaching plan to build a people's country in his early years and carved out a new road of building the people's power defending and carrying out the interests of working people from the independent stand, not wedded to ready-made theories or experience of other countries.

He founded the DPRK, the first people's democratic state in the East, on September 9, 1948.

I pay the highest tribute to the President on the occasion of 66th anniversary of the DPRK.

The director general of the Kim Il Sung Institute of Agricultural Science in Guinea and the dean of the Art Faculty of the Guinean Art College praised the President and leader Kim Jong Il for founding and developing the DPRK.
