Pyongyang, September 1 (KCNA) — Papers Wednesday dedicate articles to the Day of the Non-Aligned Movement.
Rodong Sinmun says that the NAM has made a steady progress along the road of its development for the past more than four decades despite the imperialists¡Ç vicious challenge and the complicated international situation. This movement has grown strong to be a powerful anti-imperialist independent force involving at least 110 countries and its position and say have remarkably been enhanced, the paper notes, and continues:
Independence against imperialism is a noble idea of the NAM and it is the fundamental principle of this movement to make an independent advance, not joining any block.
The present situation requires the NAM to preserve its purity and idea and enhance its role with a view to giving a strong impetus to the cause of global independence.
If the non-aligned countries get united and wage a stubborn struggle against the U.S. imperialists¡Ç high-handed and arbitrary practice and unilateralism they can certainly stop the U.S. from running wild, the human cause of independence and peace can make progress and it would be possible to build an order based on independence and equality to govern the international relations and facilitate the democratization of the international community.
Just and invincible are the idea and cause of the NAM. If the NAM steadily increases its position and might and dynamically advances along the orbit of independence, the idea and cause of this movement are bound to triumph.
It is an unshakable stand of the DPRK government and its avowed foreign policy to preserve the purity of the NAM and help it successfully discharge its duty and mission. The DPRK has so far made strenuous efforts to preserve and strengthen the NAM and realize its fundamental idea of independence against imperialism and peace against war.
Minju Joson says that the DPRK government will as ever remain true to the principle and fundamental idea of the NAM and make every possible effort to strengthen and develop this movement in the new century, too.
