Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) — Great King of Cambodia Norodom Sihanouk Tuesday visited the Kumsusan Memorial Palace to pay homage to President Kim Il Sung.
Amid the solemn playing of “Song of General Kim Il Sung” a floral basket in the name of the great king was laid before the statue of the President.
Written on its ribbon were letters “I pay highest tribute to HE President Kim Il Sung, the great hero of the Korean nation”.
He and his entourage entered the hall where the President lies in state and paid homage to him in humble reverence.
Then they looked round with deep emotion the orders and medals of the DPRK and different countries conferred upon the President and certificates of honorary titles he received from foreign countries.
The great king wrote in the visitor’s book that the Korean people have enjoyed happiness and prosperity and a higher standard of living under the most patriotic and energetic and brilliant leadership of the President and leader Kim Jong Il whom he most deeply respects and the glorious DPRK has turned into a great country which has achieved great successes in all fields of the socialist construction and built up matchless tremendous military capability.
Seeing HE Generalissimo Kim Il Sung once again, I am again deeply touched to remember the most respected President who energetically and sincerely supported and encouraged the Cambodian people in their efforts to overcome all sorts of misfortune and win a victory in the struggle for the national liberation, he noted, offering eternal thanks and highest tribute to the President, the greatest hero in the history of the Korean nation spanning thousands of years.
