History does not know such a great man as President Kim Il Sung, who has won high praise and enjoyed boundless reverence of all as the father of the Korean nation and the Sun of humanity.
In April Juche 36(1947) the secretary general of the International Federation of Trade Unions published an account of his interview.
For decades since then lots of books, articles and poems have been written by many people in the world, including “Life of Kim Il Sung”, “Ode to Kim Il Sung, great master of leadership” and “The sun has risen high in the east”.
N. M. Gribachev, a noted writer and social activist of the former Soviet Union, in an epic “General Kim Il Sung” (1950) sang highly of the personality traits of the President as a great man and his firm confidence in the final victory in the just cause of the Korean people.
Norodom Sihanouk, former Cambodian king, in his reminiscences “On my special relations with President Kim Il Sung” said that friendship, fidelity and affections embodied by the President could apparently find their origin in his gifted trait of benevolence which cannot be found in any other politicians in the world.
The general secretary of the Central Committee of the Nepal Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist), in his book “The Sun shines forever” dedicated to the 100th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung, gave vent to his true feelings, saying as people does not worry about the lifetime of the Sun, the Sun of independence is eternal.
