Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) — For the north-south relations to continue to make progress, it is important to firmly maintain the stand of settling the issue of the north-south relations by the Korean nation itself on the principle of national independence, stresses Rodong Sinmun Monday in an article.
The driving force of the country’s reunification is the Korean nation itself, the article says, and goes on:
It is the Korean nation which has vital interests in the reunification and it is also the Korean nation which has the ability for it. Only when the Koreans with ardent desire for the country’s reunification pool their thinking and efforts, will it be possible to smoothly settle the reunification issue in line with the desire and interests of the nation.
If the north and the south pool intention and will while firmly maintaining the independent stand, no anti-reunification moves of outsiders can prove successful and a new turning phase will surely open in the improvement of the north-south ties.
All the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad should wage more courageous actions for independent reunification of the country, resolutely foiling the outsiders’ interference in the internal issue of the nation, the country’s reunification issue and obstruction moves against it, under the uplifted banner of By Our Nation Itself.
