Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

    Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) -- The defender of peace, the very one who prevents war in the Korean Peninsula is the Korean nation itself, Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article says, calling upon the whole Korean nation to rise up in the struggle to defend peace against war. To defend peace against war is the most urgent task of the whole Korean nation at present, the article says, and goes on:
    Anyone cannot defend peace in our stead and peace does not come of its own accord if it is wanted. Peace in the Korean Peninsula should be defended by our nation itself in any case. It is too clear that in case a war is ignited by the U.S. imperialists in this land, it would turn into a nuclear war sweeping over the north and the south. Accordingly, the north and the south cannot be different and overseas Koreans cannot be excepted in the struggle to defend peace against war in the Korean Peninsula. Any Korean who worries about the destiny of the nation should do his best irrespective of his residence to condemn and foil the U.S. moves for a war of aggression on Korea. When all the Koreans in the north and the south and overseas fulfill their responsibility and role as the master in the struggle to smash the U.S. warmongers' moves for a war of aggression, the peace of the Korean Peninsula and the security of the nation will be defended and the movement for national reunification will make a successful advance. The whole Korean nation should surely materialize national cooperation in the struggle for peace against war. All the fellow countrymen should save the nation from the obtaining grave situation and defend the peace of the country with the concerted efforts of the nation, transcending the difference of ideology, idea, political view and religious belief, class and strata, in the idea of "By our nation itself", the main spirit of the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
    Our Songun politics is the most creditable guarantee for defending the dignity and sovereignty of the nation, preventing war and keeping peace. All the fellow countrymen should have national pride and firm pluck here and make positively support and defend the great patriotic Songun politics benefiting any member of the Korean nation.
