ATTENTION MR. KIM YUN SUN, PRESIDENT, NOC OF THE DPR OF KOREA
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear colleague and friend,

On the occasion of the celebration of the 8th September in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, I would like to ask you, in your capacity of representative of the IOC in your country, to convey to your head of state, H.E. Kim Il Sung, the most sincere and warm congratulations from the Olympic movement.

I would also ask you to present to him how a presentation, even in the most symbolic form, of the DPR of Korea in the games of the XXIVth Olympiad which are about to open would be highly praised and recognized throughout the world as one of the greatest and more positive gestures possible toward the noble cause of the reunification of Korea.

I would really appreciate your personal attention to my request as well as your information as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Juan Antonio Samaranch
IOC President
