Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)
Pyongyang, April 28 (KCNA) -- The Koreans will have a bright future of independent reunification only when they fully display the spirit of national self-respect and firmly maintain the stand of attaching importance to the nation, the nation-first stand. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article. It goes on:
It is necessary to firmly adhere to the stand of attaching importance to the nation, the nation-first stand in all aspects of the inter-Korean relations and the reunification movement in order to actively push forward the implementation of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration and lead the cause of reunification, the ardent desire of the 70 million fellow countrymen, to victory.
The above-said stands represent the main posture to be taken by all members of the nation to abide by the principle of independence in the reunification movement and an engine vigorously accelerating the march for independent reunification. Underscoring the need to hold aloft the banner of "By our nation itself," the article goes on: Reflected in the idea of "By our nation itself" is the immutable truth that the Koreans can survive only when they maintain the stand of attaching importance to the nation, the nation-first stand. The idea is replete with the strong spirit of independence and ardent patriotism of the Koreans which no other nation can ever possess, admirable fighting spirit and pluck that nothing is impossible when they pool efforts and optimism about the future of a reunified country where the dignity of the nation will be exalted and the happiness of the generations to come be guaranteed.
The idea is encouraging all the fellow countrymen to give full play to the spirit of national self-respect so that they may turn out as one in a sacred patriotic struggle for reunification against the U.S.
The U.S. imperialists are making desperate efforts to stamp out the Koreans' movement for national reunification but the ranks of those who struggle for independent reunification are full of conviction and optimism.
