Pyongyang, December 13 (KCNA) — Jon Arni Halldorsson, general secretary of the Iceland－DPRK Friendship and Cultural Society, issued a statement on December 7 with the approach of the fifth anniversary of demise of leader Kim Jong Il.
The Korean people and the progressive people of Iceland are remembering Kim Jong Il in humble reverence, the general secretary said in the statement, adding:
Kim Jong Il is a great revolutionary and a peerlessly patriot as he devoted his all to the prosperity of socialist Korea, the independent and peaceful reunification of the country and the cause of global independence.
He is an outstanding leader and a peerlessly elder statesman who had advanced the cause of anti-imperialist independence to victory with his Songun leadership for many years.
The DPRK has vigorously sped up the building of socialism, demonstrating its might as a politico-ideological power and a matchless military power. This is the noble fruition of his Songun leadership.
Kim Jong Il formulated and systematized the Songun revolutionary idea and applied the original Songun politics in all aspects. This is the feat to be recorded in human history as it provided the immortal banner for the triumphant advance of the cause of the Juche revolution and the cause of independence against imperialism.
His great exploits will shine long.
