Koreans Called Upon to Pave Wide Avenue for Independent Reunification

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- All the Koreans in the north, the south and abroad should pave a wide avenue for independent national reunification through national cooperation against outsiders, fully convinced of and optimistic about sure victory, says Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the March 1 Popular Uprising. The article says:
    The uprising was participated in by a great number of patriotic youth and students reared by Kim Hyong Jik, an outstanding leader of the anti-Japanese national liberation movement in Korea, and other people of all social standings. It was a patriotic uprising as it fully demonstrated the Korean people's staunch spirit of struggling for independence against outsiders and dealt a telling blow at the Japanese imperialist colonial rulers.
    Nearly a century has passed since the uprising. This is a glorious history of the struggle for independence against foreign forces as the Koreans have waged a strenuous struggle to put an end to the outsiders' domination and their moves for aggression and build new Korea, reunified and free.
    President Kim Il Sung is a peerless patriot as he embarked upon the road to save the nation's destiny in order to realize the nation's strong desire for sovereignty and independence and performed immortal exploits in the history of the nation through tireless energetic leadership and great devotion.
    The cause of national independence pioneered by Kim Il Sung is being inherited and carried out by leader Kim Jong Il.
    The present generation has an urgent task to fulfill for the nation. They should put a definite end to the outsiders' aggression and interference and accomplish the cause of independent reunification, carrying forward the history and tradition of struggle for independence against outsiders.
    The Korean nation's struggle for independence against outsiders is a nationwide patriotic struggle against the U.S. and Japan to resolutely smash the U.S. and Japanese aggression forces' moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and pave a wide avenue for national reunification with high national self-respect, awareness of independence and the might of the concerted efforts of the Koreans. All the Koreans should turn out as one in a just and patriotic struggle to frustrate the U.S. and Japanese aggression forces' reckless moves to invade Korea in a do-or-die spirit.
    They should renew their strong will for independence against outsiders to reject and oppose outsiders keen on aggression and protect the dignity and the sovereignty of the country.
    They should build a structure of the Korean nation's confrontation with the U.S. through practical actions.
    All the Koreans should form a front of a powerful common struggle against the U.S. in denouncing its moves to interfere in the internal affairs of the Korean nation and launch a military aggression against the DPRK. They should wage a dynamic anti-U.S. and anti-war struggle, true to the Songun politics, proud of being protected by the politics praised by the world.
    They should give a strong impetus to the process of reconciliation and the cause of reunification under the banner of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
    @The victory in the struggle for independence against outsiders hinges upon all the Koreans' full play to the Korean nation-first spirit.
