    Pyongyang, April 25 (KCNA) -- A new Songun revolutionary mode was created by President Kim Il Sung whom the Korean nation attended for the first time in its thousands of years of history. The mode varies from the existing formula by which the party was founded before organizing the army and making the revolution. The internal and international situation was very complex in those years when the President embarked upon the road of revolution.
    The might of the USSR was strengthened and the revolutionary struggle of the oppressed people was further mounted with each passing day while the economic panic which started in the United States from 1929 swept the world. The imperialists made desperate efforts in attempt to get rid of the serious politico-economic crisis. In particular, the Japanese imperialists further intensified colonial repression and plunder of Korea while hastening the preparations for invading the Asian continent in full earnest.
    The Korean people, who were subjected to harsh colonial rule of the Japanese imperialists, vigorously waged anti-Japanese mass struggle in different parts of the country. The bare-handed riot crowds could not escape themselves from fiasco before the brutal armed repression by the Japanese imperialists.
    The reality urgently demanded to wage an organized armed struggle to beat back the Japanese imperialists who did not willing to give up of their own accord the colony for their aggressive and predatory nature but were armed to the teeth. Proceeding from this, the President expounded the idea that the only way for national liberation was to wage an armed struggle at the historic Kalun Meeting (June 3 July 2, 1930), Mingyuegou Meeting (December 1931) and various other occasions. And by embodying the idea, he founded the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army (AJPGA), the first revolutionary armed forces, on April 25, 1932.
    He strengthened the AJPGA politically, ideologically and in military technique at each stage of the anti-Japanese armed struggle. He, basing himself on this, guided the Korean revolution as a whole.
    That served as the foundation for building the Party and the state without delay in Korea, which retook the sovereignty of the nation after defeating the Japanese imperialists.
    The President had all along directed primary attention to the military affairs and increased the defence capabilities during guiding the revolution and thus made a triumphant advance of the revolution.
