Kim Il Chol Calls for Bolstering War Deterrent for Self-Defence

Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) — It is a stark reality in the DPRK that it can survive without sweets but not without bullets, said Kim Il Chol, minister of the People’s Armed Forces, in a report made at a national meeting held to mark the 53rd anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War. He called for giving priority to the development of national defence industry as required by the Workers’ Party of Korea’s line of economic construction in the Songun era and thus further bolstering the nation’s war deterrent for self-defence.

He stated that the nation’s capacity for self-defence provides a sure guarantee for defending the sovereignty of the country and the nation and defending peace, declaring that it is the consistent principled stand of the WPK and the state of the DPRK to bolster the army and give priority to national defence.
