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

   Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- We will keenly watch the moves of the United States and its followers including Japan to stifle the DPRK with sharp vigilance and do our utmost to bolster our self-defensive war deterrent, unhindered by anything, tightly holding the revolutionary banner of Songun, thus adding shine to the ever-victorious history of the Korean revolution covering centuries, declared Kim Yong Chun, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army. He was delivering a report at a national meeting commemorating the 46th anniversary of Kim Jong Il's start of Songun revolutionary leadership.
    The situation on the Korean Peninsula, he said, which is getting more serious due to the dastardly and malicious hostile policy of the United States clearly proves how judicious it is that we have built up stalwart self-defensive war deterrent by carrying through all along the principle of Songun, while adhering to the unshakable stand that the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation can be defended only when we have great strength.
