Historic June 15 Joint South summit and declaration of North and South Korea in 2000, 15 years ago.
The historic south-north meeting and inter-Korean summit were successfully held in Pyongyang from June 13 to 15.
On June 13, President Kim Dae Jung and his entourage arrived in Pyongyang by air. At Pyongyang Airport General Secretary Kim Jong Il warmly greeted President Kim Dae Jung. Citizens from all walks of life were present at the airport to give welcome to a delegation of the south side. General Secretary Kim Jong Il shook hands and exchanged greetings with President Kim Dae Jung. General Secretary Kim Jong Il, together with President Kim Dae Jung, reviewed a guard of honor of the three services of the north Korean People's Army. President Kim Dae Jung made public a written arrival statement at the airport. Escorted by motorcycles, the limousine carrying General Secretary Kim Jong Il and President Kim Dae Jung headed for downtown Pyongyang. Over 600,000 citizens from all walks of life warmly welcomed President Kim Dae Jung and his entourage with compatriotic feelings along the route extending tens of kilometers. President Kim Dae Jung and his entourage waved to Pyongyangites, deeply touched by their enthusiastic welcome. General Secretary Kim Jong Il went together with President Kim Dae Jung to the state guest house where he had a conversation and posed for a picture with President Kim Dae Jung and his suite members. On June 14 tete-a-tete talks between General Secretary Kim Jong Il and President Kim Dae Jung were held. The south-north summit meeting, the first of its kind in more than half a century of territorial partition, marked an important occasion of opening a bright prospect of removing distrust and confrontation between the south and the north, and bringing earlier the great unity of the fellow countrymen and reunification on the principle of national independence. That day General Secretary Kim Jong Il and President Kim Dae Jung signed a south-north joint declaration. The south-north joint declaration is a good fruition of the historic Pyongyang meeting reflecting the desire and will of all the fellow countrymen to achieve the sacred cause of reunification and build a prosperous and powerful country by the united efforts of the nation. On June 15 General Secretary Kim Jong Il went to Pyongyang Airport to bid farewell to President Kim Dae Jung going back after successful visit to Pyongyang.

General Secretary Kim Jong Il shook hands with President Kim Dae Jung in farewell.
President Kim Dae Jung and his entourage expressed deep thanks to General Secretary Kim Jong Il for the warm hospitality accorded to them with a kinship. And they boarded the plane, waving to the cheering crowd.
Only a few months have passed since the historic Pyongyang summit. However, there have been many changes in south Korea in this period. What is noticeable is the fact that mass media extensively report the greatness of Marshal Kim Jong Il. His greatness is praised and reported as it is. This is unprecedented in this land. A student Cho of Ewha Woman's University, whom we met in front of a library in Chongno-gu, said: "There have been many changes these days. A new change is the aspiration to know more about Marshal Kim Jong Il. I have come here to get a book on him. It is hard to get such books as there are many readers." An increasing number of people aspire to learn more about the biography of Kim Jong Il. A student Lee of Pusan National University, whom we met at the Tongbo Bookshop in Pusan, said: "Days ago, the Tongbo Bookshop set up a counter to sell north Korea-related publications, including the books on the idea, theory and virtue of Marshal Kim Jong Il. It is booming. I have been here several times. Fortunately today, I could buy a book on the Marshal's reunification strategy." The reverence for Marshal Kim Jong Il is also expressed in the mood to learn after his features. Many people try to learn after his greatness and even prefer to put on simple jumpers and glasses like his. The south Korean people's reverence for Marshal Kim Jong Il, peerlessly great man of Mt. Paektu produced by heaven, gets warmer and warmer as days go by as a trend of the times.
