    Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- The international arena is now witnessing the mounting struggle to destroy the centuries-old international political order of domination and subordination and build instead a new international political order whereby all countries and nations can make progress as equal members of the international community. This reality requires them to firmly stick to the principle of independence in the international relations and foreign exchange. Minju Joson today says this in a signed article.
    It goes on:
    A prerequisite to establishing a new international political order free from domination and interference is to firmly abide by the principle of independence. Every country and nation in the world has an independent right to shape its destiny in an independent and creative manner.
    It is self-evident that no one can replace a master in achieving social progress and development.
    In each country, there is its own view on value based on its history, tradition and national character and its state management system and methods reflecting the requirements and interests of its people and specific realities.
    The U.S. imperialists look down upon and pressurize other countries and resort to high-handed and arbitrary practices. This arrogant attitude is a stumbling block lying in the way of the sound development of the international community.
    All the countries are called upon to observe their political principle in foreign relations and pursue policies in keeping with the wishes and interests of their people and their specific conditions.
