Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The space development for peaceful purposes is an independent and legitimate right of Juche Korea, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a commentary.

It goes on:

The DPRK's action for conquering the space is a serious politically-motivated confrontation for achieving the independence and justice of mankind.

The issue of the DPRK's satellite launch is not boiled down to the character of the satellite and the method of its launch and it is, in essence, an acute political and class struggle decisive of independence or subordination, progress or reactionary action.

No one can turn back the wheel of history.

Our satellite reflects the nation's dignity and sovereignty that can not be bartered for anything. It represents an ardent aspiration and future of mankind desirous of independence and justice, freedom and equality on our planet.

The DPRK has always carried on the struggle for preserving the sovereignty and felt a sense of heavy yet moral mission before the era and mankind.

The Korean people have turned out in a decisive battle with the reactionaries of the history to put an end to the U.S. imperialists' offensive to stifle the DPRK and build a free and peaceful world.

Independence, progress and socialism will judge domination, reactionary elements and capitalism. Under such situation, the confrontation with the U.S. will drop its curtain with the final destruction of the empire of evils going down after facing death sentence.

We proudly say that the road of conquering the space is the one of independence to destroy the international order of high-handed and arbitrary practices and to establish the order of independent people.

The DPRK's action for conquering the space is the road of revolution, independence and self-support before one for science.

The Juche-oriented satellite will steadily put into the space at the time and place determined by the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.

The DPRK will soar, ushering in the dawn of a free and peaceful century. -0-
