Reminiscences off the press

Pyongyang, September 8 (KCNA) — The Workers’ Party of Korea Publishing House brought out reminiscences “noble virtues all over the world” to mark the 50th anniversary of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The book deals with impressive stories of the loving care of the President Kim Il Sung for foreign party and state leaders and prominent figures from all walks of life.

The President made sure the statue of former Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai was built, invited his wife Deng Yingchao to visit Pyongyang and had a talk with her over old times so as to add lustre to the history of DPRK-China friendship.
He had close intimacy with king of Cambodia Norodom Sihanouk, the relations of friendship and noble obligation between “the leader of a communist state” and the “king.”
It was not more than once in his life that he met with ex-President of Chile Salvador Allende Gossens, but he always remembered Allende, saying that Allende was a revolutionary and hero who had valiantly fought to maintain his political principles.
He gave prominence to a Chinese martyr Zhang Weihua and former Soviet army officer Ya. T. Novichenko as models of internationalists well known to the world and showed great loving care for their bereaved families.
He appraised Stalin with a revolutionary principle and a sense of obligation, setting a living example in communist morality and dealing a heavy blow at the imperialists and renegades of socialism.
He showed great loving care for and deep trust in a woman lawyer of Cuba Candelaria Rodriguez, a Mongolian woman Osorsuregin Cherma who brought up Korean War orphans, Hu Zhenyi, widow of a Chinese anti-Japanese martyr Cai Shirong, and a retired general of the former Soviet army Lyashenko and other people.
