Twenty-two years have passed since Leader Kim Jong Il inspected the truce village of Panmunjeom.
His historic inspection of Panmunjeom on November 24, 1996 encouraged the Korean nation distressed by national division with hope of reunification.
On the day, he recollected great life and undying exploits of President Kim Il Sung who devoted his all to the country’s reunification until his last breath in front of the monument to President Kim Il Sung‘s signature. He defined the three principles of national reunification, the 10-point program for the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding a Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo, set forth by the President as the three charters for national reunification. He hardened his fixed will to reunify the country for sure true to the President’s instruction for national reunification.
The news rocked the Korean Peninsula and excited the Korean nation. It kindled the Korean nation, who was despondent over the country’s reunification after the demise of the President, to hope.
Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un carries out the great cause of Leader Kim Jong Il for national reunification.
He inspected the truce village of Panmunjeom in March 2012 to convince the people with his unwavering confidence in independent reunification.
He looked round the monument to President Kim Il Sung‘s signature. Leader Kim Jong Il visited the truce village of Panmunjeom for four times and took measure to build the monument in Panmunjeom to convey long the last autograph of Kim Il Sung to posterity, he recollected with emotion.
He made a firm determination to hand down a reunified country to the posterity by satisfying the lifelong desire of the preceding leaders.
In his New Year Address for this year, he put forward the policy for great change in the north-south relations and good line for great turnand took bold steps in succession unprecedented in the history of inter-Korean relations. He made a fresh turn in realizing independent reunification with historic inter-Korean summit in Panmunjeom which led the adoption of the April 27 declaration.
He, who brought about the spring of reconciliation in Panmunjeom, invited the south Korean President to Pyongyang and made the autumn of fecundity.
The south Korean people and Koreans overseas highly eulogize Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
They highly speak of him; “A broadminded and smart man”, “A great man with humility, frankness and composed manner” and “The savior of reunification and peace both in name and in reality”.
Broad segments of south Korean people formed many organizations for welcoming Chairman Kim Jong Un’s visit to Seoul.
