Pyongyang, April 25 (KCNA) -- Minju Joson Tuesday in an editorial dedicated to the 74th anniversary of the Korean People's Army calls for adding shine to the immortal exploits performed by the great persons of Mt. Paektu in army building, saying that it is the highest pride and honor of the KPA that it has displayed its might as an army of justice and a powerful main force of the revolution under their leadership. It continues:
The KPA is a strong revolutionary army born in Mt. Paektu and has grown matchless under the leadership of its founder and commander and the history of the Korean revolution is the great Songun history that remains glorious along with that of the army. It is the unshakable faith and will of leader Kim Jong Il to direct primary efforts to bolstering up the People's Army, regarding President Kim Il Sung's idea and line of giving importance to the army and military affairs as a basis and a starting point and to successfully settle all issues arising in defending the country and carrying out socialist construction, depending on its political and military might. The Songun revolutionary cause in the DPRK is now dynamically advancing under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.
The KPA is fully demonstrating its might as the main force of the revolution as it has carried forward the traditions of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle and its servicepersons have become comrades most loyal to Kim Jong Il. It is necessary to eternally glorify the undying feats Kim Il Sung performed by accomplishing the historic cause of the liberation of Korea with arms of the revolution and defending the country and the revolution and building an invincible socialist power on the principle of giving priority to military affairs and settle all issues arising in army building and other activities the way he did no matter how much water may flow under the bridge and no matter how many times a generation is replaced by a new one. All the servicepersons of the People's Army should deeply cherish the honor and pride of being blessed with the supreme commander, which no other army has ever enjoyed in history, and win one victory after another, holding high the flag of the supreme commander, the editorial concludes.
