Rodong Sinmun on World Trend toward Multi-Polarization

    Pyongyang, March 4 (KCNA) -- The world is steadily heading for multi-polarization despite the U.S. moves to make the world uni-polar and it is an irresistible international trend for the world to become multi-polar. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a by-lined article.
    It continues: China and Russia and many other countries are exerting positive efforts to establish a new multi-polar world order.
    China and Russia are directing big efforts to cooperation in the military field to this end.
    A typical example of this was the fact that the armies of the two countries staged the large-scale joint military exercise codenamed "Peace Mission-2005" in August last year. Russia and China together with India are paying attention to building a new multi-polar world. For instance, last year witnessed the 4th talks of the foreign ministers of those countries in Vladivostok. The foreign ministers re-clarified the stance that they support the establishment of a fair world order based on the democratization and multi-polarization of the international relations. The cooperation between Russia and India is growing stronger.
    As already reported, at the end of the 1990s Russia proposed the formation of a joint front by Russia, China and India to cope with the U.S. plan for the expansion of the NATO and the U.S. Missile Defense system. It is now believed to be at the stage of its realization.
    The EU is also stepping up its moves to contain the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices and create its own forces for collective defence in a bid to strengthen its position and increase its influence as an independent polar.
    What is noteworthy in the moves for a multi-polar world is the developing countries. Now the developing countries hold a collective position to reckon with in the international arena and play a big role in promoting the multi-polarization of the world. The alliance among developing countries and their integrated regions are strongly opposed to the U.S. imperialists' moves for world domination and contain the U.S. moves for uni-polar world.
    The significance of the trend towards a multi-polar world lies in that it has significantly weakened the position of the U.S. imperialists as the "only super power" and created an environment favorable for the development of the impartial international relations.
    Its significance also lies in that this trend keeps any specified forces from unilaterally dominating the world.
    The above-said trend is, in the final analysis, helpful to building a new fair international order and promoting the cause of global independence. No force on earth can stem the trend towards a multi-poplar world.
