Pyongyang, June 17 (KCNA) — It has been twenty years since leader Kim Jong Il made public the famous work “On Preserving the Juche Character and National Character of the Revolution and Construction” on June 19, Juche 86 (1997).
The work clarifies the principled requirements for preserving the Juche character and national character of the revolution and construction, the essential nature and advantages of the Korean-style socialism strong in the Juche character and national character and the guidelines to be adhered to in the struggle for the independent development of the country and prosperity of the nation.
Since its publication, the Workers’ Party of Korea has advanced the cause of socialism along the road of victory, always giving fullest play to the Juche character and national character of the revolution and construction.
It came to be an invincible treasured sword for preserving and defending the Juche character and national character that Kim Jong Il had pursued the unique Songun (military-first) politics and set forth a new line of economic construction with the main stress on the defence industry at the time when the U.S.-led imperialist reactionaries ran amuck ever before in their moves to stifle and isolate the DPRK.
The history of his Songun revolutionary leadership was the one of his noble patriotism and love for the Korean nation that witnessed the good qualities of the nation in full bloom with national culture, art and customs encouraged.
Now the preservation of the Juche character and national character of the revolution and construction is developed onto a new higher stage under the guidance of respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
His wise guidance in giving fullest play to the Juche character and national character in the socialist construction finds its concrete expression in a number of monumental edifices symbolic of the times and masterpieces created as required by the new century as well as national characteristics and emotion.
Under his leadership, the army and people of the DPRK will further demonstrate the superiority and invincible might of the Korean-style socialism strong in the Juche character and national character.
