Pyongyang, June 15 (KCNA) — Atanas Ivanov, honorary chairman of the Bulgarian Communists Union, on June 9 released a statement on the occasion of the 52nd anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s start of work at the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
The statement said:
Even though so many heads of state left their names to posterity, no one is as alive in the hearts of the world progressives for performing titanic exploits as Kim Jong Il.
He devoted his all to the people’s happiness and country’s prosperity.
He, a great thinker and theoretician, brightly lighted the way for humankind by developing in depth the Juche idea.
Thanks to his Songun politics, the Korean people were able to firmly protect the country’s prestige and sovereignty and have powerful national defense capabilities.
He put in tireless efforts to reunify the country divided by the outsiders.
The adoption of the historic June 15 North-South Joint Declaration and the October 4 declaration provided the Korean people with the milestone for hastening national reunification, the long-cherished desire of the nation.
