   Pyongyang, September 18 (KCNA) -- A meeting took place at the Central Workers' Hall in Pyongyang on Sept. 18 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of President Kim Il Sung's famous work "Let Us Expose and Smash the Reactionary Manoeuvres of the US Imperialists". Kim Ki Nam, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and vice-chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, made a report at the meeting.
    Kim Il Sung in his historic concluding speech made at the Sixth Meeting of the Central Committee of the Democratic National United Front of North Korea clarified the steadfast anti-U.S. stand to wage a vigorous struggle against the U.S. military government in south Korea, noting that all Koreans should not allow themselves to be reduced to slaves of the U.S. imperialists, the reporter said, and continued:
    After the publication of the work, the President consistently held fast to the principle of national independence, the line of one Korea and led on his own initiative the movement for national reunification. He set forth the three principles of national reunification, the 10-point program for the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo.
    Kim Jong Il formulated the above-said principles, program and proposal set forth by the President as the three charters of national reunification. Kim Jong Il provided the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration, thus bringing about a decisive phase of national reunification. He has also smashed the U.S. imperialists' every move to stifle the DPRK under the uplifted banner of Songun, thereby protecting the destiny of the country and the nation and opening up a broad vista for national unity and reunification.
    Noting that now is the time to put an end to the U.S. imperialists' history of aggression against the Korean nation and interference in the latter's internal affairs, the reporter called on all Koreans in the north, the south and overseas to turn out as one in the anti-U.S. struggle to defend the dignity and sovereignty of the nation and achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country.
    The people from all walks of life in south Korea should rise up as one in the struggle to drive the U.S. imperialist aggression troops, the root cause of all evils, out of south Korea and resolutely frustrate the sycophantic and treacherous moves of the pro-U.S. ultra-right conservative forces including the "Grand National Party" as required by the June 15 era, the reporter noted.
    Present at the meeting were O Ik Je, vice-chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, Kang Ryon Hak, presidium member of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of the Fatherland, and others.
