yongyang, June 25 (KCNA) — Hundreds of thousands of Pyongyangites from all walks of life met at Kim Il Sung Square Sunday on the occasion of “June 25, the day of the struggle against U.S. imperialism”.
Present there were Pak Pong Ju, Choe Thae Bok, Yang Hyong Sop and other cadres and working people and youth and students in the city.
Pang Chol Gap, chairman of the Pyongyang City People’s Committee, took the floor first. He said:
On June 25, 1950 the U.S. imperialists launched an all-out armed invasion to destroy the young DPRK and realize their ambition for world supremacy. But they had to sign the Korean Armistice Agreement, yielding to the army and people of the DPRK.
The U.S. has persistently pursued its hostile policy to isolate and stifle the DPRK and provoke another war against it, keeping south Korea under its military occupation for more than 50 years after the war, far from drawing a proper lesson from the shameful defeat it suffered in the last Korean war.
The U.S. reckless and dangerous war moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK have created such a grave situation on the Korean Peninsula that a war may break out any moment.
What should not be overlooked is that the U.S. is going to start large-scale joint military exercises in the waters of the Pacific from June 25, the day it provoked the Korean war in the last century.
“RIMPAC-2006” the U.S. and its followers have launched with huge troops and latest war means involved are dangerous maneuvers for a war of aggression targeted against the DPRK under the pretext of “ensuring security” in sea routes and “jointly combating terrorism.”
The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it thinks it can bring the Korean people firmly defending socialism of Juche under the banner of Songun to their knees and realize its ambition for domination and aggression by dint of its high-handed and arbitrary practices and force.
The army and people of the DPRK will closely follow every U.S. move with a high degree of revolutionary vigilance.
Should the U.S. imperialists ignite another war of aggression on this land, we will mobilize all the political and ideological might and military potentials built up generation after generation under the guidance of the great Songun brilliant commander and mercilessly wipe out the enemies and victoriously conclude their stand-off with the U.S.
Representatives of different social standings, speaking at the meeting, said that now is the time for us to conclude our stand-off with the U.S., adding that should the U.S. ignite another war of aggression oblivious of lesson taught by the last Korean war, the Korean people would wipe out the aggressors to the last man with tremendous war deterrence and uproot the cause of war from this land.
Poem “We will Settle Accounts” was recited at the rally.
The poem reflects the solemn declaration of the army and people of Songun Korea that should the U.S. imperialists use nukes against the Korean nation, they will make hundreds of times stronger nuclear strike at them and thus inflict final destruction upon the aggressors.
The participants staged a mammoth anti-U.S. demonstration, chanting slogans “We vehemently denounce the U.S. imperialists’ monstrous crimes against the Korean nation!”, “The U.S. imperialist aggressors, quit south Korea at once” etc.
