Anniversary of Pyongyang Declaration Marked

Pyongyang, April 20 (KCNA) — The Korean Central News Agency Wednesday released an article “Victory of Juche Socialism Is Truth of History” to mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of the historic Pyongyang Declaration.

The article said:
A century has passed since the first proletarian government appeared on the earth. This year all the eyes of the world are on socialist Korea which has covered victory and glory without any mistake of its line and marking-time through generations.
The Pyongyang Declaration “Let Us Defend and Advance the Cause of Socialism” was made public at a meeting of leaders and representatives of political parties of different countries aspiring to socialism in Pyongyang on April 20, Juche 81 (1992).
The publication of the Pyongyang Declaration was a review on the history of the world socialist movement and a historic event declaring the new start of the socialist movement based on the Juche idea.
Many famous works authored by leader Kim Jong Il including “On the Juche Idea,” “Socialism of Our Country is a Socialism of Our Style as the Embodiment of the Juche Idea” and “Our Socialism Centred on the Masses Shall Not Perish” became the victorious banner for not only the Korean revolution but also the world socialist movement as they comprehensively clarified the Juche idea and on the basis of it the aspects of socialist society, lawful course of its construction, strategic target and line, working policies in all fields and concrete ways.
In particular, “The Historical Lesson in Building Socialism and the General Line of Our Party”, published on January 3, 1992 right after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, made the progressive mankind joyful while giving a deadly blow to those who talked rubbish about the destiny of socialism.
Communist and workers’ parties and other progressive parties of different countries aspiring after socialism could find the way of the reconstruction movement of socialism from the works of Kim Jong Il.
The world progressive parties aspiring to socialism highly praised the Pyongyang Declaration as “the genuine Communist Manifesto in modern era” and expressed full support and approval for it. Even now many parties are joining in the ranks.
After the publication of the Pyongyang Declaration Kim Jong Il made public “On the Fundamentals of Revolutionary Party Building,” “Let Us Bring the Advantages of Our People’s Government into Fuller Play,” “Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable” and other famous works to give repeated answers to the theoretical and practical problems arising in the Korean revolution and the world socialist movement.
“Socialism Is a Science,” his treatise published in Rodong Sinmun, the organ of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, put socialism on a new scientific foundation so that the people could overcome the historical limitation of the previous socialist theories and protect socialism from the imperialists’ attack and more dynamically advance it.
The U.S. and other reactionary forces of history, much upset by the fact that socialism became contemporary prevalence encouraged by the Pyongyang Declaration, hysterically launched the second “McCarthyism cyclone” again far from facing up to the trend of the times.
The U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is an intensive revelation of anti-socialist moves and its epitome.
Now it is driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the utmost crisis talking about “preemptive attack” on the DPRK. This frantic behavior clearly proves that our socialism is advancing and winning victory after victory.
The strength that can move the world is neither money nor A-bomb, but the great idea.
Socialism of the DPRK set the principle of independence in politics, self-support in the economy and self-reliance in national defence on the basis of the great Juche idea, the highest peak in the history of ideology of mankind. On the way, Korean socialism advances without an inch of deflection and concession.
Korean socialism is guided by the great party and the great idea and it has the single-minded unity, that can never be perished even by nuclear weapons, and invincible military power and inexhaustible power of the people for self-development as motive power. Herein lies the key to ever-victory of Korean socialism.
Korean socialism is advancing toward the rosy future of the 21st century in the van under the guidance of respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, another great man who is leading the grand march in the new century of Juche after formulating the revolutionary ideas of the great leaders as Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
Socialism of Juche is sure to win the final victory.
