Anyone who visits Panmunjom which is called the synonym for the split of the Korean nation hesitates to move in front of the monument bearing on inscription of the autograph of President Kim Il Sung.
“Kim Il Sung
July 7, 1994”
It is the last autograph of President Kim Il Sung in his lifetime.
Ushering in July Juche 83(1994) the preparation for the first north-south summit talk in the history of national division was being undertaken in the last stage by ardent love for nation and broad magnanimity of President Kim Il Sung.
Although President Kim Il Sung did not relieve his fatigue piled up due to the guidance to the economic sector the day before, he turned over the historical document one by one.
He got through the last page of the document and signed with master-stroke “Kim Il Sung July 7, 1994”.
And then he beamed all over his face saying that the national reunification was just ahead, which our fellow countrymen so much longed for.
But nobody could imagine that this letters would be the last autograph in his lifetime.
He devoted his tireless efforts saying that the national reunification was the greatest present for our people but he left his desire for the reunification on these 9 letters and passed away too unexpectedly and too sorrowfully.
The day was July 8, 1994.
The monument bearing on inscription of the autograph of the national reunification solemnly stands conveying the immortal achievements of President Kim Il Sung for the national reunification, the long-cherished desire of the nation.
