Immortal Exploits to Go Down with Century

The feeling of respect and reverence towards President Kim Il Sung , the veteran statesman and outstanding leader of world revolution, is cherished by the Togolese people, too.

Gnassingbe Eyadema, President of Togo was deeply moved by the unique Juche idea, noble internationalist obligation and boundless magnanimity of President Kim Il Sung when he first visited Pyongyang in September 1974.

Then the Togolese President set forth as a priority in his country the elimination of the colonial legacy remaining in politics, the economy and other fields and the provision of stable life to the people by achieving sustainable economic growth.

While he was waging a struggle for it, he decided to visit Pyongyang again in the beginning of the 1980s.

President Eyadema and his party visited Pyongyang for the second time from September 29 to October 4, 1981 in order to receive teachings from President Kim Il Sung on important issues arising in the building of new society. President Kim Il Sung warmly welcomed them as goodwill envoys and gave careful attention so that they did not feel any inconvenience during their visit.

During the visit by the Togolese delegation to Pyongyang, President Kim Il Sung met them as many as ten times and expounded on direction and method – the guideline for Togo in the building of a new society. He said that if they improve seed and the farming method in Africa which is so hot in weather, they can multiply the production by several times and that the imperialists cannot act rashly in regional countries if the members of ECOWAS grow good crops and solve the food problem.

Even after President Eyadema’s return to his country, he paid deep attention to the Togolese people striving to build a new society and took measures to aid Togo materially and morally in agriculture, construction, education, and other fields. Those include building a Party school in Lomé that can admit 400 students as well as the dispatch of technical forces needed for irrigation works.

That is why President Eyadema cherished boundless gratitude and reverence for President Kim Il Sung and said that he greatly admires and hails President Kim Il Sung as his true brother and a great man of the world. He also highly praised that the feats performed by President Kim Il Sung for human history will remain forever.

The friendly and cooperative relations between the DPRK and Togo were established under the deep concern and friendship of the preceding leaders. Even though centuries and generations have passed, it continues to develop on favorable terms in line with the common aspirations of the two peoples and the demands of the new era.

We extend our support and solidarity to the people of Togo striving for the country’s development and prosperity, and we will make active contributions to further strengthen and develop the friendly and cooperative relations that exist between our two peoples.
