Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- The Korean Friendship Association headquartered in Spain posted on its website on March 20 an article "Looking up to the eternal sun" illustrated with photos documenting leader Kim Jong Il's exploits for national reunification.

The article said:

The whole Korean nation significantly celebrates the Day of the Shining Star, the birth anniversary of General Kim Jong Il, in boundless yearnings for him in February every year.

The south Korean people are full of reverence for the peerlessly great man who loved the country and the nation more than anyone else, looking back on his exploits for national reunification.

"He advanced many proposals and ways for national reunification as he had a firm will to reunify the country." They said: "He made sure that the inter-Korean summits were held and the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration were adopted, thus ushering in the new era of independent reunification.
