Rodong Sinmun on Idea of "By Our Nation Itself"

    Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- The Korean nation is able to realize the three forms of cooperation -- cooperation for national independence, cooperation for peace against war and cooperation for reunification and patriotism -- and successfully push forward the cause of independent reunification only when it holds fast to the idea of "By our nation itself", says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed article. "By our nation itself" is the idea of noble patriotism which hardens the will of the Koreans to reject the foreign forces in carving out the destiny of the nation and cooperate by our nation itself, the article notes, and goes on:
    "By our nation itself" is the spirit of patriotism and national consciousness that the destiny of the nation is shaped by the Korean nation itself and the firm will of the Korean nation to beat back the aggression and interference of the foreign forces by the concerted efforts of the nation. The idea of "by our nation itself" is the motive force of promoting the three forms of cooperation.
    The idea is that of national independence and great national unity.
    The idea serves as a powerful weapon for boosting cooperation for national independence, peace against war and reunification and patriotism on a nationwide scale.
    The U.S. has run amuck to isolate and stifle the DPRK politically and militarily and the south Korean pro-American flunkeyist forces have cooperated with the U.S. in line with its moves for aggression against reunification. The reality requires the Korean nation to wage a vigorous struggle to materialize cooperation under the banner of the three forms of cooperation.
    Only when the Korean nation puts the idea of "By our nation itself" into practice in hearty response to it can the nation pave the wide avenue for the victory of the movement for national reunification despite the desperate moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad. All the fellow countrymen at home and abroad will wage a more dynamic struggle to realize the three forms of cooperation, bearing deep in mind the noble idea of independent national reunification, "By our nation itself".
