   In his keynote speech President Vasile Orleanu of the Supreme Council of Romanian Socialist Party, who is also director of the ERSSJI Board said as follows:
   "Great achievements made by the Korean people in the socialist revolution have proved that the Juche idea can be applied to the contemporary world in viable, political, and legal manners. The powerfulness of the Juche idea has been revealed under the circumstances that they have to face challenges of the entire capitalist world led by the USA and their overt hostile and aggressive maneuvers. The foundation of the Juche idea was the great contribution of PresidentKim Il Sung to the world.
   "Comrade Kim Jong Il's policies were the continuation of the achievements made by PresidentKim Il Sung. Their achievements will remain the pillar of strength for the Korean people waging their struggles against American imperialism, or their guardians over time for their revolutionary acquisition onwards in the future. Every success in the Korean socialist construction bears the imprint of a foot of them.
   "Comrade Kim Jong Il's exploit of developing and enriching the Juche idea, his faith in the cause of Juche, and his commitment to the benefit of the people to his last breath will remain a timeless lesson for socialists around the world, to all who knew of him and loved his work."
