   Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) -- No moves of the imperialists can put down the independent purpose and desire of the progressives or turn back the main stream of the present era toward independence, declares Rodong Sinmun on Monday. The author of the article says:
    The struggle of the progressives for independence is sure to win as it represents the desire and demand of the popular masses and corresponds to the flow of history.
    It is important for all the countries to legitimately exercise their independent rights in frustrating the strong-arm and arbitrary practices of the imperialists and accomplishing the human cause of independence.
    Defending Juche and national character is the main requirement for pursuing an independent foreign policy. It is the highest manifestation of independence to defend and strengthen this character.
    Respecting the sovereignty of all countries is a major demand for realizing independence of the popular masses. There are countries big and small, developed and less developed, but all the countries are equal in the international relations and they have independent rights. No country has the right to impose its idea, system and way of life upon other countries. Especially the acts of forcing one's will upon others by a strong arm and encroaching upon others' sovereignty must never be tolerated.
    It is impossible for all countries and nations to enjoy independent rights as full-fledged members of the international community, unless the principles of impartiality and equality are respected in the international relations.
    The struggle for independence is, in essence, an anti-imperialist struggle. A resolute fight should be put up against imperialism without the slightest illusion about it. Herein lies the correct way of carrying the human desire for independence into reality.
    To achieve the unity of the progressive people aspiring after independence is an important matter arising from the intrinsic demand of the present international situation and struggle for independence.
    It is truth borne out by the practical experiences of the Korean revolution that the way of achieving the prosperity of the country and the nation lies in sticking hard to the principle of independence. The Songun politics of the Workers' Party of Korea is the supreme manifestation of independent politics.
