Pyongyang, June 24 (KCNA) — The idea of “By our nation itself” is a patriotic one which the Koreans should take as guidelines for accomplishing the cause of reunification as it reflects the consciousness of national independence requiring all the members of the nation to decisively oppose and reject flunkeyism and dependence on foreign forces and maintain the firm national stand. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article.
Pointing out that the idea of “By our nation itself” serves as a basis for achieving the great unity of the whole nation and realizing national cooperation, the article goes on:
In order to win a decisive victory in the struggle of the Korean nation to protect peace, it is necessary to strengthen the driving force of the nation in every way. The master of the destiny of the nation is the nation itself and the nation is also capable of protecting its destiny. The might of the driving force of the nation lies in the unity of the whole nation. No force on earth can overpower the nation united to realize its common aspiration and will.
The idea of “By our nation itself” serves as a powerful spiritual weapon as it makes it possible for the Koreans to pool their will and efforts in the struggle against outsiders and aggression. The vitality of the idea lies in that it helps embrace and unite all the members of the nation who value and enshrine the soul of the nation and love the country and the nation, irrespective of ideology, social system, class and social strata.
Only when all the fellow countrymen in the north, the south and overseas are firmly united as one, based on the noble idea of “By our nation itself”, is it possible to significantly increase the might of national independence guaranteeing the victory in the struggle to protect peace and successfully carve out the destiny of the nation.
All the Koreans in the north, the south and overseas should pool the patriotic aspiration and will under the uplifted banner of “By our nation itself” and thus decisively frustrate the criminal moves of foreign forces for aggression and war with the might of national cooperation and further glorify the era of reunification after the publication of the June 15 joint declaration, the era of national independence.
