Pyongyang, July 3 (KCNA) — The Songun politics of the Workers’ Party of Korea serves as a treasured sword of justice protecting sovereignty of the nation and peace and security of the country and a powerful engine advancing the era of independence and reunification.
Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a signed article. It goes on:
Reflected in the banner of Songun being held aloft by the DPRK are its firm will and independent mettle to defend sovereignty of the country and the nation and achieve independent reunification at any cost as unanimously desired by the nation.
The army and people of the DPRK are frustrating every move of the U.S. imperialists to block reunification while increasing the defence capability of the country in every way under the banner of Songun.
In recent years when the U.S. imperialists have become evermore undisguised in their moves to stifle the DPRK and hamper reunification its army and people have protected dignity and security of the nation and facilitated the implementation of the joint declaration, a milestone of independent reunification, with the might of Songun.
The U.S. imperialists have made desperate efforts to ignite a war on the Korean Peninsula in a bid to reduce the June 15 joint declaration to a dead document, hamstring the efforts to develop the inter-Korean relations and torpedo the process of reunification but all this proved futile because of the tremendous vitality of the DPRK’s Songun politics. It is the spirit and pluck of Songun Korea not to allow anyone to infringe upon the dignity and interests of the Korean nation. No one can encroach upon the interests of the DPRK as long as it is pursuing the Songun politics.
The Songun politics is one for defending peace as it is aimed at preventing the danger of war and ensuring peaceful reunification.
The DPRK has frustrated the moves of the U.S. imperialists to invade it with the ever-victorious Songun politics. Through the “Pueblo,” “Panmunjom” and other incidents the army and people of the DPRK clearly showed what awaited the aggressors. No force can match the army and people who have grown stronger a thousand times under the banner of Songun. But for their strength, a new war would have broken out in Korea ten times. It is entirely thanks to the DPRK’s Songun politics that peace has been preserved on the peninsula.
The DPRK will as always work hard to guarantee peace of the country and achieve peaceful reunification, shattering every reckless move of the U.S. imperialists to start a new war with the might of Songun, the article concludes.
