Adherence to Independent Stand Called for

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

Pyongyang, April 2 (KCNA) -- It is a national and international duty of the progressive people and a task they have assumed before the times to shatter the evermore undisguised moves of the imperialists and dominationist forces against independence and history and struggle for the building of an independent new society, a new world. What is important here is to adhere to the independent stand.

Rodong Sinmun Friday says this in a signed article.

It goes on:

Important in adhering to the independent stand is to guarantee the independence in politics and economy.

Only when any country and nation maintain political independence can the already achieved national independence and sovereignty be defended and the sound development and prosperity of the country be achieved.

A regime which pursues politics under the pressure of others or according to their instructions without the independent stand is bound not to stand on their own feet, yielding to high-handed and arbitrary practices of foreign forces, and make a mess of the revolution and construction.

Adhering to the principle of independence provides a guarantee for the independent development of the country and the nation and the development of international relations based on independence.

Self-supporting in economy helps strengthen the material foundation of the country, push forward social and economic development and defend independence.

Only self-reliance is the way of living independently and it guarantees the economic progress of the country and national prosperity.

Self-reliant national defence capability provides a military guarantee of independent and sovereignty state and serves as a reliable treasured sword for defending the sovereignty.

It is evidenced by the shining history of the struggle of the Korean people who have won victory only in struggle to defend socialism and in confrontation with the U.S., tightly holding the arms of the revolution on the basis of the great Songun revolutionary idea and line.
