He is the lodestar of national reunification, who is doing hiy utmost to make our divided fellow countrymen live in a reunified country.
He set forth the most correct line and policies of reunification and has wisely led the struggle for their materialization.
Under his distinguished and tested guidance, the north and the south of the country could hold again deadlocked dialogue and contacts and promote collaboration and exchange in different domains= the National Alliance for the Country’s Reunification and the National Alliance of Youth and Students for the Country’s Reunification (Pomchonghakryon) were inaugurated= the pan-national rally and the Pomchonghakryon’s pro-reunification festival events are held every year= and the reunification movement has developed into a nationwide movement involving all the fellow countrymen.
Kim Jong Il is a benevolent father of the nation who shows paternal love and solicitude for the entire nation with noble all-embracing politics of patriotism.
It is thanks to his magnanimous politics as warm and attractive as the sun that all fellow countrymen of different social standings are actively joining in the nationwide patriotic ranks of great national unity, though they are different in idea and political view and have different careers of life.
Guided by him, the father of the nation, the Korean people will develop and prosper and the reunification, the cherished desire of the nation, will surely be achieved.
