It was the far-sighted policy and able leadership of the Great Leader President KIM IL SUNG that had played the mainly instrumental role in arraying Korea and the Korean people in an atmosphere of independence after having incessantly fought against Japanese and U.S. imperialism. The heroic role played by the Korean people under his revolutionary leadership too occupies a place of pride in the history of Korea. There cannot be two opinions about the fact that the brave activities and the struggleful life of the Korean people equipped with revolutionary ideals constitute the main background of the speedy progress of Korea. The fighter’s role which the Korean people developed and consolidated in the struggle for their country’s independence without wavering even in the least in face of the having full faith in the ultimate victory through the adherence of the principles of mutual help and following single mindedly the policy and directives enunciated by President KIM IL SUNG during the course of struggle has become such an immortal part of history which will continue to inspire the entire peace loving people of the world.
Inspired always by the political personality of the Great Leader President KIM IL SUNG who was accustomed to the ways of a revolutionary family life had contributed untiring labor for the larger development of Korea when Korea has been achieving new heights every week on the road of development. There will be no exaggeration to claim that the far-sighted leadership and fatherly affection of President KIM IL SUNG had placed the country very much ahead of many Asian countries.

The sentiments, gratitude and esteem expresses for him present a living example of how much the entire Korean people were impressed by the personality of President KIM IL SUNG who had never alienated himself from the feeling that the weal and woe of his people are his own weal and woe. The unprecedented progress achieved in the field of education, agriculture, industry, culture etc. under the dynamic leadership of the Korean’s beloved leader President KIM IL SUNG had brought Korea in line with the other developed nations of the world.
While on a visit to DPRK, we personally realized that the speedy progress which is being made by Korea in accordance with the principle and the pace of Chollima being practiced under the able leadership of President KIM IL SUNG had become an imitable lesson for all developing countries. What we witnessed during our tour of different parts of DPRK proved that Korea had in fact become well established and developed. The Korean people have now become not only able to fulfill their essential needs but are also making tremendous headway in the direction of attaining self-reliance. Consequently, the Korean people are today free from the problem of unemployment. The entire working people have received the opportunity of choosing professions of their own propensity by in keeping with their desire and enjoy full state guarantee for the security of their job. I am confident that the contributions which the ideological unity, technological and cultural revolution have rendered in augmenting production and accelerating the pace of progress will go a long way in further consolidating the gains of the Korean development in the future. It was under the far-sighted and dynamic leadership of President KIM IL SUNG that Korea had attained full national independence, economic self-reliance and ability to defend itself without obtaining any foreign assistance, thus turning itself an internationally recognized developed country.
