Pyongyang, September 4 (KCNA) -- The five million members of the young vanguard constitute a strong pillar and invincible power of the Workers' Party of Korea, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a bylined article.
It goes on:
The Korean youth have demonstrated their might as a vanguard force in pushing forward the revolution and construction in every period and at every stage of the revolutionary development under the wise leadership of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
The WPK has embarked upon the road of advance in the new century of Juche revolution. It is proud of having the five million strong elite contingent of young people more powerful than any nuclear weapons and more precious than whatever amount of money.
The article points to the noble ideological and moral traits of the young people of the DPRK.
It goes on:
Youngsters' spiritual world of trusting and following their leader and party is expressed in such self-sacrificing acts as protecting with good care portraits of peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu from flames and rough waters.
More than 1.9 million young people petitioned to be allowed to join or rejoin the Korean People's Army in just a few days, prompted by the desire to mercilessly punish the U.S. imperialists and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors in south Korea for daring hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
The successful launch of satellite, such great events as the development of Korean-style CNC technology and the construction of such monumental structures as the Aanbyon Youth Power Station, Youth Hero Motorway, the Taedonggang Combined Fruit Farm and high-rise apartment houses in Changjon street are associated with shining exploits of lots of known and unknown young men and women.
Thanks to the large contingent of young people, the DPRK has successfully solved the issue of carrying forward a baton of the revolution, construction and party building.
Many legends about the warmest love for young people have been produced in this country under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Un, who has creditably carried forward and developed the great Generalissimos' idea of attaching importance to the youth.
The history of the heroic struggle waged by the young people boundlessly loyal to the party, the country and its people is given steady continuity along with the party's deep trust and love, and the Songun revolutionary cause is wining victory after victory, the article concludes.
