Pyongyang, September 18 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun Monday in an editorial calls for opening a broad avenue for building a powerful socialist country with the great advance of self-reliance.
It goes on:
Self-development is the best and self-reliance is a way out. Only when their might is increased in every way, the final victory of socialism will be hastened. This is the revolutionary faith of the army and people of the DPRK they have cherished through the special events of September.
The U.S. imperialists are now making desperate efforts to slap sanctions against the DPRK while pulling up the latter’s measures to bolster up the state nuclear force as a “threat to global peace”.
Meanwhile, big neighboring countries, which do not want to see the DPRK getting stronger and better-off but run counter to good faith and obligation without any principle and confidence, are following the U.S. action.
The prevailing situation calls for giving full play to the might of self-reliance, the lifeline and proud tradition of the Korean revolution and driving force of advancing socialism.
What we should rely on is our own strength and self-development is our greatest strength. The road to be followed by us is self-reliance and the short-cut to making a leap forward and bringing about innovations is self-reliance.
When we give fullest play to the might of self-reliance whose validity and vitality were proven in the tempest of history, our life and future and dignity of the country will be ensured, the final victory of the confrontation with the U.S. which has lasted for centuries be achieved and the firm guarantee for a new era of great power provided.
Let us resolutely frustrate the enemies’ sanctions with heroic advance of self-reliance and pave the wider avenue of final victory for building a socialist power. This is the militant banner that we should uphold in the all-out do-or-die drive.
All Koreans should dynamically advance along the road of Juche and self-reliance and accelerate the final victory of building a socialist power under the leadership of the great Party.
