Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) -- Leading papers Thursday dedicate editorials to the 16th anniversary of demise of President Kim Il Sung.

Rodong Sinmun says that the President will always be with the army and people of the DPRK dashing ahead like the wind towards a final victory in the drive for building a great prosperous and powerful nation and the road of Juche explored by the President is an ever- victorious one for glorifying the DPRK as a thriving nation.

It goes on:

The road of Juche indicated by the President is the road of justice for turning the country into a powerful nation of the people where their ideal will become a brilliant reality and a path of national self-reliance for bolstering up the national power in every way by our own efforts in our own way.

It is also a road of effecting a great revolutionary surge along which the popular masses are working epoch-making miracles by giving full play to their ideological and moral power.

It was the motto for building a power maintained by the President all his life, the maxim that when building a state, it is necessary to set up a popular state in which the popular masses become masters and when setting a goal for building a thriving nation it is necessary to build a country where the people live with nothing to desire more in the world.

It was under the leadership of the President that the Korean people opened the gate to an industrial power by their own efforts and their own way despite ruins where not a single brick was available and worked epoch-making miracles in every period of the revolution and construction and at its each phase.

The President attached importance to ideological and moral power of the popular masses and unrolled a history of building a power with this as an ever-victorious weapon. His greatness finds full manifestation in the on-going drive for building a thriving nation.

The DPRK has adorned its proud history with victory and glory along the road of Juche indicated by the President. It has greeted a great heyday of prosperity under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.

Minju Joson calls on all the Korean people to unite close around the headquarters of the revolution led by Kim Jong Il and dynamically advance to realize the people's ideal so much desired by the President.
