Antti Sika Aho, international secretary of the Finnish Communists' League, said: This annual festival for celebrating Kim Jong Il's birthday is an eruption of Korean people's boundless reverence for him. The flowers named after the leader, a great man, have come to full bloom, and I will work hard to propagate Kimjongilia in my country.

Alejandro Cao de Benos, chairman of the Korean Friendship Association headquartered in Spain, said that the immortal flowers made him feel how deep the Korean people's trust in their leader is.

Pae Jin Gu, vice-chairman of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon), said that the festival was of weighty significance as it well showed people's deep reverence for the great man.
