Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) — The spirit of the Red Flag that mirrors the traits of the three generals of Mt. Paektu serves as the banner of the struggle of the true communists.
Rodong Sinmun stresses this in a signed article today.
The Red Flag spirit of Mt. Paektu means that one should carry out one’s revolutionary task by oneself no matter how difficult it is, the article says, and goes on:
The spirit serves as the driving force with which the Korean people live and fight as the vanguard fighters in defending the leader at the risk of their lives, as the banner of the indomitable spirit under which they rise again even though they fall hundreds of times and as the banner of independence under which they push ahead with the revolution and construction their own way with firm belief in their own efforts.
Our society has great potentials as the integral whole of the singlehearted loyalty and filial piety to the leader. It is the noble traits of the Korean people who inherited the Red Flag spirit of Mt. Paektu to devotedly safeguard the headquarters of the revolution headed by General Kim Jong Il as the seventh regiment of the Korean People’s Army did during the anti-Japanese war.
It is the unshakable will of the Korean people to build their country into a powerful one of Juche in the same indomitable spirit that was displayed by the People’s Army members in the thick forests of Mt. Paektu. The indomitable spirit of the Korean people is the source of strength for preserving the Juche character and the national character in the teeth of the campaign the imperialists have intensified as never before to isolate and stifle them, as well as the mean acts of renegades of all hues, and for demonstrating the might of Kim Il Sung’s Korea all over the world.
As long as they have the Red Flag spirit of Mt. Paektu, the Korean people will remain as a dignified independent people and Korea as a powerful country independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence forever.
