Pyongyang, May 18 (KCNA) — Books “Legendary Great Man” and “Great Succession” were published and distributed by the Publishing House of the Russian Association for the Development of Friendship and Cooperation with Foreign Countries on the occasion of the Day of the Sun.
A portrait of smiling President Kim Il Sung is printed on the front cover of the book “Legendary Great Man” against the background of a sunrise on Mt. Paektu.
The book contains 8 articles written by S. Z. Umalatova, chairperson of the Party for Peace and Unity of Russia, and other Russian figures.
In the book the authors highly praise the life of Kim Il Sung as a brilliant life of the great statesman and legendary great man produced by the 20th century and a life recorded with the exploits performed by him for the cause of independence of the Korean people and other people of the world.
Edited on the front cover of the book “Great Succession” is a photograph of smiling leader Kim Jong Il against the background of royal azaleas on Pass Chol, one of the eight sceneries in the Songun era.
The book carries 7 articles written by Irina Pirogova, former political commentator of the Russian paper Patriot, and other personages.
Their authors write that Kim Jong Il is the great thinker and theoretician in the present times and the supreme leader of the party, the state and the army of the DPRK who, endowed with total dedication to the country and the people and noble personality, has successfully carried forward the Juche revolutionary cause started by Kim Il Sung.
What merits particular attention in his political activities is that he unrolled the Songun politics, a unique political mode, and has wisely led
the country’s defence buildup and socialist construction, putting forward the People’s Army as a mainstay, they notes, adding:
By pursuing the Songun politics he has frustrated the imperialists’ moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and their high-handed practices and demonstrated the honor and dignity of the country and the nation to the whole world, opening a new chapter of building a great prosperous powerful socialist nation.
