Defending Independence Is Basic Guarantee for National Development: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) — The realities today when the alleged “only super power” of the world is getting all the more wanton in its aggressive and dominationist hysterics make it quite urgent for the Koreans to hold higher the banner of independence in the struggle to carve out the destiny of the country and the nation, says Rodong Sinmun in an article Friday.

Holding higher the banner of independence is a highly important matter in foiling the U.S. imperialists’ current moves to destroy national identity under the slogan of “globalization,” the author of the article notes, and goes on:

Anyone who is concerned for the destiny of the country and the nation should approach the imperialists’ moves to destroy national identity with high vigilance and resolutely smash them with national self-respect.

The stand of national independence should be firmly maintained in the reunification movement, if the cause of reunification is to be led to victory in the teeth of all manner of challenges of history blocking up the advance of the era of independent reunification.

The Korean people’s struggle to defend the independence of the country and the nation at the present juncture is a stand-off of strength and a stand-off of ideology and will with U.S. imperialism, stresses the article, and goes on:

The best weapon for maintaining independence is invincible military capacity. The motive of the Workers’ Party of Korea choosing the path of Songun and the mission of Songun politics are to consolidate the might of the driving force of the nation to be invincible and thereby frustrate the outsiders’ moves of aggression and domination and reliably defend the dignity and sovereignty of the nation. The colossal war deterrent built under Songun politics is demonstrating its invincible might in the current stand-off with the U.S. Under this great politics, the U.S. imperialists’ policy of aggression against the DPRK is bound to go bust and peace on the Korean Peninsula and security of the Korean nation are sure to be guaranteed.
