Pyongyang, November 11 (KCNA) — The army and people of the DPRK are dynamically advancing, rallied closer around the great Workers’ Party of Korea and holding higher the banner of independence and self-reliance, says Rodong Sinmun in an article Saturday.
Independence is the banner of victory associated with the ever-victorious history and traditions of socialist Korea, the article notes, and goes on:
With the principle of independence, we have foiled every counterrevolutionary offensive and interference of the imperialist reactionaries and dominationists and made victories and miracles in every stage of the revolutionary struggle.
The Korean people experienced the bitter lesson through history that sycophancy and dependence on outsiders leads to national ruin.
Thanks to the great strength of creation and change called self-reliance, they could build on this land a powerful socialist country independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defense.
Epoch-making changes and great victories made in the severe and great struggle eloquently prove that no one can stop the Korean people from dynamically advancing along the road of self-reliance under the unfurled banner of giving priority to self-development.
The banner of independence and self-reliance, which has fluttered since the Korean revolution started, is still fluttering higher in the van of the revolution.
Independence, representing the history of the Korean revolution, is the life and soul of Korea, the steadfast revolutionary faith of its people and the everlasting mode of struggle.
The great advance of self-reliance started with Yanji bomb still continues without letup.
Our people will surely win in the showdown with the U.S.-led imperialists as they are armed with the faith of independence and the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.
