    Pyongyang, November 2 (KCNA) -- The patriotic movement of great national unity in which all the people are fighting, united in one body, for peace against war under the uplifted banner of "By our nation itself" is a powerful weapon for defending peace, declares Rodong Sinmun in an article Thursday. The great unity of the nation is the basic way of removing the danger of war, firmly defending peace of the country and security of the whole nation and dynamically pushing forward the cause of reunification under the strained situation today, the author of the article notes, and goes on:
    The tension on the Korean Peninsula now has been pushed to the worst crisis by the U.S. imperialists' hostile policy toward the DPRK. The U.S. is working round the clock to bring into shape an international siege to the DPRK through sanctions and blockade against it. What they seek in this is to push the inter-Korean relations to a rupture and create a phase of confrontation and war by inveigling south Korea into the maneuvers of sanctions and blockade.
    Under the grave situation in which an ultra strained touch-and-go tension has been created on the Korean Peninsula by the rash aggressive moves of the U.S. imperialists and their followers, the great unity of the nation based on the idea of "By our nation itself" is the weapon on which the Korean nation should keep a tight hold in the struggle.
    Any reckless move of the U.S. imperialists for a war of aggression will prove impotent, if all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad are closely united in one body, irrespective of differences in idea, ideology and ism, placing the common interests of the nation before those of themselves, classes and social strata.
    The Korean nation is registering sizable achievements by aspiring after unity and achieving cooperation in accordance with the idea of "By our nation itself" laid down in the June 15 joint declaration.
    The Korean nation is by no means fated to suffer a war.
    All the Koreans should unite closer against foreign forces' moves for a war of aggression, holding high the banner of the patriotic movement of great national unity with the conviction of peace of the country and its peaceful reunification. Great national unity is the way of defending peace and the way of peaceful reunification and prosperity.
