Who has the opportunity to visit a modern and fully equipped pool at no charge or very cheaply at any time and enjoy swimming? Which citizen enjoys free holidays in luxury beachfront apartments? Which citizen pays nothing for his child’s education? Which citizen does not pay taxes? Only the sophisticated man of Juche enjoys these privileges that he has chosen to provide to himself through a long battle with imperialism and reaction.” Martin Lotscher of KFA Switzerland and the Swiss Korea Committee said the President KIM IL SUNG was an ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander .He reconstructed the DPRK at Chollima speed .
