Pyongyang, July 5 (KCNA) — Socialism has steadily developed in the DPRK, propelled by Songun (military-first) politics pursued by the Workers’ Party of Korea.
Songun politics, formulated to be an effective socialist political mode by General Secretary Kim Jong Il, has fully demonstrated its validity and vitality in the Korean revolution.
On July 5, Juche 90 (2001), he published a celebrated work “Songun Politics of Our Party Is an Effective Socialist Political Mode”, in which he systematizes the WPK’s Songun revolutionary line and Songun politics in an integral way and expounds them in a comprehensive way.
The work defines President Kim Il Sung’s history of leadership as the history of the Songun-based leadership. On the basis of his Songun idea, it clarifies the essence, principles and contents of Songun politics and gives the tasks for implementing the politics.
