On March 27, 1989 President Kim Il Sung met Rev. Mun Ik Hwan, the then advisor to the Association for National Democratic Movement (Jonminryon), on a visit to Pyongyang. The President warmly welcomed the minister, saying that his visit was a very brave act and that he was very glad to meet him. After having a photo taken together, the President led him to a seat close to his own, asking to have a heart-to-heart talk with him. His kindness made the minister speak his mind to him from the beginning as if he had met his own parent who had long been away. Saying that he was a man who had lived with the belief that reunification of the nation would lead to its resuscitation, regardless of the question of whether Jesus Christ returned to life 2 000 years before, the minister frankly told the President that he was there for the good of national reunification and that he was very glad that the day after his arrival there was Easter Day. Then he expressed his boundless reverence for the President, saying that before liberation he had heard a lot of legendary tales about the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle led by the President.

Expressing his gratitude, the President warm-heartedly asked Mun how his mother was. At his replay that she would celebrate her 100th birthday in 1995, the President said they should achieve national reunification before the anniversary.

Barely controlling his excitement, Mun told the President that it was established as the south's principle of public movement that the anti-fascist struggle for democracy, the struggle for national independence against foreign forces and the struggle for democratic reunification should be integrated, and that it was the path of the movement and the very programme of Jonminryon. The President said it was 100 per cent the same with his opinion and warmly held the minister's hand.

He then explained that anti-fascist, anti-dictatorship for democracy, independence against foreign forces and aggression, and peaceful reunification are one and said that they all had the same idea.

That day the President gave a luncheon in honour of the minister and his suite.
