Now, he has published a book entitled “The DPRK: ‘And for You, Who I Am’ ” from L’harmattan.

In this book Prof. Edmond Jouve gives a thoughtful introduction to the DPRK, where he visited 17 times in 35 years.

He wrote in its preface: “This is a book for another look, beyond the viewpoint of stereotypes, on the DPRK, which is known in France under the name of ‘North Korea.’ ”

“Of the many trips I have made around the world (the equivalent of ten trips from the Earth to the Moon), the ones I have made to the DPRK are among the most surprising. I am not sure that they have been fully understood by all my friends. I think the time has come to lift some of the veil on my relationship with this country.”

“Although President Kim Il Sung passed away, he won the heartfelt respect of all the people throughout the ages and centuries for the great achievements he had made in carrying out the global cause of independence.

“Thanks to the wise leadership of President Kim Il Sung, the DPRK has firmly established the foundation of an independent national economy and self-defensive national defense industry, and thus has been able to fully display its majesty as a powerful country while vigorously promoting economic and defense construction.

“The achievements of President Kim Il Sung will be remembered forever in the hearts of all the people.”
