Pyongyang, February 21 (KCNA) -- It was a great exploit of general secretary Kim Jong Il that he set forth the five-point policy for great national unity as it brought about a new turning point of national unity by carrying forward President Kim Il Sung's idea and line for great unity of the nation. Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a bylined article.
On April 18, 1998 Kim Jong Il laid down the five-point policy which calls for uniting under the banner of patriotism while preserving the principle of national independence, improving the north-south relations, struggling against outsiders' domination and anti-reunification forces and calling on all Koreans to realize mutual contacts, dialogue and solidarity and alliance.
The five-point policy has always served as a banner of victory in the struggle for national reconciliation and unity and the reunification of the country for its justice, realistic nature and vitality, the article says, and goes on:
Kim Jong Il set forth the policy of uniting under the banner of patriotism, the banner of national reunification, thereby providing an ideological groundwork whereby the Koreans who unanimously desire the reunification of the country with ardent patriotism may promote great national unity.
It is required by national unity and the reunification of the country to improve the north-south relations. The history of the national reunification movement clearly proves that only when the inter-Korean relations are improved, is it possible to dynamically promote national unity.
It is one of the important ways for great national unity for all Koreans to visit each other and make contacts, develop dialogue and achieve solidarity and alliance.
The five-point policy laid down by Kim Jong Il could put the cause of great unity of the Korean nation on a higher stage which can provide a sure guarantee for the accomplishment of the cause of national reunification.
The Korean nation can surely achieve reconciliation, unity and the cause of national reunification when it implements the five-point policy.
