Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) — Swiss bodies and a Myanmar personage issued statements on April 1 and 6 on the occasion of the Day of the Sun, the birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung.
The Swiss Preparatory Committee for Gathering 2017-Praise to the Great Persons of Mt Paektu, the Swiss Preparatory Committee for Celebrating the 105th Birth Anniversary of President Kim Il Sung, the Switzerland-Korea Committee and the Swiss Group for the Study of the Juche Idea said in their joint statement:
President Kim Il Sung is the most prominent great leader and statesman in human history.
He liberated Korea from the Japanese imperialists’ colonial rule, defeated the U.S. imperialists in the Fatherland Liberation War and turned socialist Korea into a paradise for people.
He had energetically worked to realize the national reunification till the last moments of his life.
That’s why the Korean people have grandly celebrated his birth anniversary as the Day of the Sun, holding him in high esteem as the sun of the nation.
The President, who dedicated all his life to the happiness of the people, clearly showed the road ahead of the cause of global independence.
He is a great internationalist as he rendered material and moral support to the peoples in Asia, Africa and Latin America struggling for national liberation.
Maung Maung Naying, director general of the Myit Tar Moe Publishing House of Myanmar, praised the President as the peerless elder statesman and the greatest man who led the Korean revolution to victory under the banner of independence and steered the human cause of independence.
