Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea made public a memorandum on the exploits of President Kim Il Sung, leader Kim Jong Il and the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un who provided the tradition of great national unity in the first period of national division and successfully carried forward and developed it generation after generation. The memorandum was issued on Saturday to mark the 70th anniversary of the Joint Conference of Representatives of Political Parties and Social Organizations in North and South Korea.
The memorandum said it is the line of
national reunification consistently maintained by Kim Il Sung since the
first day of national division that Korea should not be bisected but
reunified in line with the common will and demand of the nation.
It noted that Kim Il Sung made a proposal of convening a joint
conference of representatives of political parties and public
organizations in North and South Korea in his speech "On the Proposal
for North-South Negotiations" made at a meeting of the corps of chairmen
of the Central Committee of the Democratic National United Front of
North Korea in October 1947 when the U.S. imperialists resorted to all
sorts of vicious moves to hold "separate elections" and form a "separate
government" under the signboard of the United Nations, and wisely led
the struggle for realizing it.
Noting that the joint conference
successfully took place in Pyongyang on April 19-23, 1948 with the
attendance of 695 representatives of 56 political parties and public
organizations in the north and the south of Korea, the memorandum
stressed that the April joint conference was a brilliant fruition of Kim
Il Sung's independent line of national reunification and idea of great
national unity and the first historic victory won by the
pro-reunification patriotic forces.

he had wisely led the struggle for achieving the great unity of the
nation and reunifying the country on the basis of the experience and
success made in the above-said joint conference.
