In hearty response to the militant call of the Party, the army and people of the DPRK turned out as one in the struggle to do away with aftermath of the unprecedented natural disaster and built the disaster areas into a socialist fairyland, which would not be affected by any storm and stress, by dint of the great might of single-minded unity.
