Pyongyang, November 22 (KCNA) -- It is the consistent stand of the DPRK for national reunification to achieve great national unity.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes this in a signed article.

It goes on:

Great national unity and national reunification are the crucial issues related to the destiny of the Koreans.

Koreans are the driving force for the country's reunification and national reunification is a sacred cause of achieving independence of the nation through the unity of all the Koreans.

Any attempt to settle the issues of the nation and reunification in reliance upon outside forces, turning away from great national unity and the driving force, would bring greater national misfortune. It is nothing but an empty talk to mention national reconciliation and cooperation in pursuance of the reliance upon outside forces and national reunification can hardly be expected without the nation's independence. It is the lesson taught by history that the rights and interests of the nation and the national character and dignity are bound to be trampled down and it cannot escape national maltreatment and insult and the fate of a stateless nation if it, deprived of independence, is not freed from the outside forces' domination and subjugation.

Whoever has the soul of the Korean nation cannot turn away from national unity and reunification. All Koreans who are members of the Korean nation and stand for national reconciliation and reunification should unite close under the banner of great national unity irrespective of idea, political view and religious belief whether they live in the north and the south or overseas.

Independent reunification and peace and prosperity are sure to come only when all the Koreans unite close as one, guided by the idea of "By our nation itself" and uphold the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration and positively implement them, concludes the article.
