Koreans Called upon to Achieve National Cooperation

    Pyongyang, November 8 (KCNA) -- National cooperation serves as a treasured sword for ensuring peace of the country and accomplishing the cause of its reunification as it helps the 70 million Koreans stand on the common front for defending the homeland, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a signed article. Security and reunification of the country should be achieved by the concerted efforts of the nation in a responsible manner under any circumstances as it is an issue related to the nation's sovereignty and destiny, the article says, and goes on:
    National cooperation is invincible as it identifies patriotism as its ideological and moral basis.
    The patriotic spirit and identity inherent to the Korean nation formed and consolidated throughout its 5,000 year-long history remain unchanged although the Koreans have lived separated into the north and the south.
    The Korean nation can certainly achieve solidarity and alliance for its common cause despite various differences including differing ideologies and systems in the north and the south and differing wishes and interests of various classes and strata only when they consider patriotism as an ideological and moral basis. The Koreans have already proved this in the course of implementing the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration, closely united in the idea of "By our nation itself." Only when all the Koreans who ardently love the country and the nation and value its dignity cooperate with each other can they reliably defend the country's peace and security and dynamically push forward the movement for independent reunification, no matter what ferocious aggressors may attack them and no matter how desperately the anti-reunification forces may work.
    The article calls on all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad to turn out in the movement for achieving the cooperation for national independence, cooperation for peace against war and cooperation for reunification and patriotism, as required by the June 15 era of reunification guided by the idea of "By our nation itself."
