DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Refutes G-7 Summit Joint Statement

  Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday over the fact that the U.S. and the hostile forces made public a joint statement faulting the DPRK at the G-7 summit:

    At the summit held in Sicily of Italy on May 26-27, the U.S. and its followers made public a joint statement slandering the DPRK.

    It is those seven nations which carried out most of the nuclear and missile tests that have been and who render regional situation extremely tense through competitive sales of war means like attack missiles to south Korea.

    Yet, they are urging the DPRK to scrap its nuclear deterrence meant for self-defence of the country. This is like a guilty party filing the suit first.

    The G-7 summit is a place where those nuclear- and missile-haves put their heads together to discuss how to pressure weak countries and those incurring their displeasure.

    The U.S. and its followers are seriously mistaken if they think they can deprive the DPRK of its nuclear deterrence, the nation's life and dignity, through sanctions and pressure.

    The increased sanctions and pressure will compel the DPRK to further step up its moves for diversifying and modernizing its nuclear force. -0

Reportback Meeting of JISGE, ASSPUK and UK KFA 20.05.2017

                                       
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK, the Juche Idea Study Group of England and the UK Korean Friendship Association held a meeting on the 20th of May at 2pm in central London to report back from the recent visit to the DPRK and to express full solidarity with People's Korea against US and wold imperialism including supporting the rocket test of the DPRK .
The meeting was attended by members of the ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and also the general public.
 Dr Dermot Hudson President of the ASSPUK and Chairman of the JISGE said that " Before we travelled to People's Korea there were all kinds of crazy reports of imminent war on the Korean peninsula and talk of a US aircraft strike carrier group heading towards the DPRK to mount  a pre-emptive strike on the DPRK . There were rumours of all flights been cancelled and of Pyongyang being evacuated. This proved false .Pyongyang was full of people both Koreans and foreigners , aircraft were flying and there was a calm , peaceful and almost dreamy atmosphere. No one we spoke to was worried or frightened by Trumps threats .No one cared a fig for what Trump was saying.Everyone was calm and strong. In many parts of the globe imperialist aircraft intrude into the skies but in Pyongyang and other parts of the DPRK the skies are free from imperialist aircraft , indeed visiting the Fatherland Liberation War Museum we saw the wreckage of the EC121 US imperialist spy plane shot down by KPA fighter aircraft on the 15th of April 1969.....   Undoubtedly the high point of the visit was the April 15th grand military parade and mass civilian demonstration. That day rain had been predicted but instead the weather was bright and sunny leaving us with a slight sun tan . The parade was attended in person by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , chairman of the Workers Party of Korea and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK . Before the parade started vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the WPK comrade Choe Ryong Hae made a speech which pointed out that "  The U.S. is creating the phase of a war while resorting to frantic nuclear war provocation moves against the DPRK, the speaker said, stressing that if it makes reckless provocation, the Korean revolutionary armed forces will immediately mount an annihilating blow and answer an all-out war in kind and a nuclear war with Korean-style nuclear strike.". The parade was most disciplined, precise and yet at the same time enthusiastic and buoyant. We saw detachments of armed university students marching. The DPRK has an all-people defence system so that in the event of war everyone will take up weapons and fight the US imperialists to the last person.
 For the first time we saw special forces troops of the Korean People's Army equipped with the very latest gear . I am convinced that the Korean People's Army could liberate south Korea and reunify the country finally ending the existence of the reactionary ,decadent anti-people fascist puppet regime of south Korea.  We also saw Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles and massive ICBMs thundered by. After the military it was the turn of the civilians who staged a most colourful mass parade tangibly demonstrating the unity of the people around the leader and Party . There were slogans about defending socialism , about the Juche idea and about self-development first . When the civilian parade finished dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN waved to the audience, we broke into rapturous applause , the respected Marshal waved to us , his face looked bright and happy....
   
   Our delegation called on the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south  Korea(AINDF), the underground revolutionary organisation of south Korea which upholds the great Juche idea. We conversed the head of the mission comrade Zo Il Min in a friendly and cordial manner. We were shown videos showing the just struggle of the south Korean people against the corrupt and despotic Park Geun Hye regime and also the aggressive warmongering exercises of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets as well the struggle of the south Korean and world progressive people. We had a discussion on how to best support and invigorate  the struggle of the south Korean people and the AINDF for independent reunification. We were entertained with a wonderful meal including the excellent kochugang hot pepper sauce .
   Militant anti-imperialism was very much an integral part of our visit . We visited the Fatherland Liberation War Museum which details  both how the US imperialists provoked the Korean War and the defeat of the US imperialists. We also visited the new expanded and reconstructed Sinchon Museum . I had visited it in October 2015 but it was the first time for the other members of my delegation to see it. Here we learnt in graphic detail of the barbaric and sub-human atrocities committed by the US imperialists against the innocent Korean people. We saw anti US posters and the song "Death to the US imperialist aggressors " was being played  over the PA system as background music. I addressed a revenge pledging gathering of Korean people becoming the first foreigner to do so. !

Shaun Pickford secretary general of the JISGE and chairman of Staffordshire Korean Friendship Association said that " On arriving in Pyongyang, I found the atmosphere in the  DPRK to be very tranquil and stable, a million miles away from all the hysteria generated by the Western mass media. Indeed the DPRK is a society free from crime, poverty, disorder and terrorism. The renovated Pyongyang International Airport made for a pleasant passenger  experience, the new Pyongyang airport was opened in July, 2015. Compared to other international airports, the one at Pyongyang combines efficiency and friendliness. To say the DPRK is isolated, is complete nonsense, as I encountered tourists from many countries at the airport, including from the British based Saga Travel.
 
One ambition of mine was realised, when I had the chance to visit The Kumsusan Palace Of The Sun, on my other DPRK trips I was unable to go there. The modern history of Korea and the global struggle for social progress is inconceivable without the leadership of President Kim IL Sung and Chairman Kim Jong IL. As somebody who has been studying and disseminating the Juche Idea for many years, I wanted to pay my respects to the teachers and leaders of human emancipation, Kim IL Sung and Kim Jong IL. It was really poignant that in the afternoon of April 15th, the Day of The Sun, I that paid my regards to the Great Leader President Kim IL Sung and the Great Leader Chairman Kim Jong IL, with a sincere heart. I silently wished the Great President a happy 105th birthday and knew that Kim IL Sung behests will be eternal. I felt particularly emotionally on seeing the final resting place of Kim Jong IL, who passed away in December, 2011 on a moving train in the course of his revolutionary activities. The Kumsusan Palace Of The Sun was opened on July 8th, 1995 and was further refurbished by the order of Kim Jong Un in 2012 so as to perpetuate the memory of Kim IL Sung and Kim Jong IL as the Suns of Juche.
To understand the acute situation on the Korean peninsula,  a visit to The Sinchon Museum in South Hwanghae Province is required. The original museum had been reconditioned in 2014 and has many graphic reconstructions of those events. As I entered the grounds of the museum, I was confronted by the sheer horror of those occurrences more than sixty years ago. On one side of the steps leading to the museum's entrance, there is a mass grave containing the bodies of mothers and on the other slant, a collective grave for the children's bodies. Even before entering the museum building, I had to get to grips with the atrocious nature of US Imperialism"

David Munoz de Castro UK KFA organisation secretary said that " could see many changes during our way from Sunan to Pyongyang.New houses, repainted houses and peaceful villages.
On the arrival I could see the already built Ryomyong street. When we visited the DPRK last year they had not even started with the construction. They were not the only thing I could see from my route to the hotel. I could see new buildings and very modern built throughout the city and others in the process of construction.
Upon arriving at the hotel we realized that it had been rebuilt and improved with a model statue of the hotel in the center of the reception.
90 delegates from 20 countries arrived in Pyongyang-
During our visit we were able to visit many places that we had not had the opportunity to see last year like the Orphans Primary School. I remember that last year was still under construction. There we could see the excellent conditions in which the orphans live. Unlike the poor conditions in which they live in capitalist countries where the resources do not reach them or to have the opportunity to study and where the only hope of the orphans is that they are adopted by a family with money.
In the DPRK the orphans live a life equal to others, with education and a dignified life with the same opportunities and where the state takes care of them as part of the vanguard and future of Korean socialism."

Dr Hudson denounced US imperialism's war threats and made a speech about the Hwasong-12 rocket launch saying that " Basically the DPRK had done what it said it would do and test a ballistic missile that was capable of carrying  a heavy nuclear warhead. Actions always speak louder than words . The DPRK guided by the great Juche idea and Songun idea is a country which always means what it says and says what it means. The DPRK a country of some 120,000 or so square kilometres with a population of some 25 million was put under immense pressure, in fact intimidation and bullying , not to the test the rocket. The opposition came not just from the US imperialists and their crazy buffoon like President ,Trump, but also the big power-chauvinists and international revisionists who had whined and bleated that the
DPRK should 'exercise restraint'  etc .Such countries dance to the tune of the US imperialists and in fact basically sold out to US imperialism years ago  proclaimed a so-called 'open door ' to the imperialists and capitalists and'reform ' and 'opening up' !Today it is Juche Korea that is upholding
the line of anti-US,anti-imperialist struggle and is ready to battle it in the final showdown with
US imperialism should the US imperialists provoke a war . Indeed the Hwasong-12 rocket test shows that the DPRK under the leadership of dear respectedMarshal KIM JONG UN is holding fast to the revolutionary line of Songun by defying the threats ,diktat and bullying of the US imperialists . The DPRK was totally unbowed by the successive UNSC sanctions that have applied to the DPRK since 2006. Honest minded people have to admit that it is only the DPRK in the world that is standing up to US imperialism and is not afraid of it ."

Other speakers and participants in the meeting  denounced US imperialist war threats against People's Korea and called for increased solidarity such as pickets etc .

Dr Hudson spoke about the Kwangju uprising  against the south Korean puppets and US imperialism  in 1980 saying that "The Kwangju uprising, which lasted 9 days , added a new chapter to the history of the struggle of the south Korean people for independence ,democracy and reunification .  The participants of the Kwangju uprising showed remarkable courage and determination in the face of intense fascist repression by the south Korean puppet reactionaries and the Yankee imperialists."  Dr Hudson also said that "the US imperialists are the true author of the Kwangju massacre. US imperialism has the blood of 5,000 south Koreans on its hands!" . It was stressed that south Korea is stil a puppet regime of the US despite the change of 'government' and that US troops must be withdrawn from south Korea . It is important to step up the struggle to support the AINDF the vanguard of the south Korean people .

A solidarity resolution was adopted  and also a message to the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN .

A exhibition of the works of the great leader President KIM  IL SUNG , Chairman KIM JONG IL and respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as well as books on the Juche Idea and Songun idea and the publications of the ASSPUk, JISGE and UK KFA was held.

Refreshments were served.

A cultural evening was held which included the music of the Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble as well as the stated merited chorus. Meeting concluded at 7.45pm

Deputy Permanent Representative of DPRK Mission to UN Calls Press Conference

 Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- The deputy permanent representative of the DPRK mission to the United Nations called a press conference on May 26 as regards the issue of formation of an international forum of legal experts to clarify the legal ground of UNSC's "sanctions resolutions" against the DPRK.

    He condemned the U.S. and its vassal forces for pulling up the DPRK over its steps for bolstering nuclear deterrence for self-defence, including the recent successful test-fire of ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2.

    Noting that the UNSC and the UN Secretariat are blindly following the U.S., he said that they must clearly distinguish who is responsible for the current critical situation on the Korean peninsula and should behave in fair and with cautions.

    The root cause of the present situation of the Korean peninsula inching to the brink of war is the U.S. which has continued staging the provocative joint military exercises for aggression by introducing all kinds of nuclear strategic assets, he said, and went on:

    We made several requests to the UN Security Council to discuss the issue of the joint military exercises that intimidate the peace and security on the Korean peninsula as its emergency agenda. And we sent letters to the UN secretary-general as well, demanding him to bring the attention of the issue to the Security Council.

    However, the UN Secretariat turned its back to our fair requests, and rather picked a quarrel only with our legitimate exercise of the right to self-defence against the U.S. nuclear threats and blackmails as violation of the "sanctions resolutions".

    It has so far kept silent to our requests to organize an international forum of legal experts for clarification of legal grounds of the "sanctions resolutions".

    In order to put an end to the illegal and inhumane evil conduct continuing like a traditional practice in the UN Security Council, the permanent mission of the DPRK to the UN made a proposal in January 2017 to the UN Secretariat on holding an international forum of legal experts either in New York or Geneva to clarify the legal ground of "sanctions resolutions".

    But after our proposal on organizing the international forum of legal experts, the U.S. employed reptile broadcasting service to spin out preposterous sophistries about the legal ground of "sanctions resolutions" against the DPRK, quoting the non-expert opinions of those who are unaware of even international laws.

    If the United States has anything to say, they should come out and speak out at the international forum of legal experts, instead of spreading unreasonable words by using those who do not even know about international laws.

    The reality fully shows that organizing the international forum of legal experts to investigate the legal ground of ''sanctions resolutions'' is all the more pressing.

    The international forum of legal experts is a place where the legality of ''sanctions resolutions'' can be clarified fairly from the international law perspective.

    In March 2017, the permanent mission of the DPRK to the UN proposed to the UN Secretariat that the governmental and non-governmental experts from all states and international legal organizations could attend the international forum as they wish and the agenda of the forum could also be agreed upon reasonably in full reflection of the wishes and opinions of the attendants.

    These kinds of requests for international forum of legal experts have been made to the Secretariat for over 20 times afterwards in various ways through such as letters to the Secretary-General, press statements of the mission, press conferences and interviews.

    Now we are totally disappointed at inability of the Secretariat that could not even make decision of the issue organizing the international forum of legal experts, and it is quite absurd that the Secretariat, which could not make clarification of the legality of the "resolutions", still claims for any implementation of them.

    The Secretariat of the UN, whose basic mission is to ensure global peace and security, should fulfill its responsibility before the international community by positively responding to our proposal for organization of the international forum of legal experts to clarify the legal ground of the "sanctions resolutions" against the DPRK.

    Before pulling up the DPRK over its bolstering nuclear forces for self-defence, the Security Council and the Secretariat of the United Nations should judge out calmly who really maintains peace of the Korean peninsula and keep impartiality and prudence in dealing with international matters. -0

Japanese Authorities Warned of Inciting Pressure and Sanctions on DPRK: Foreign Ministry Spokesman

   Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry released the following statement on Monday:

    The DPRK's measures for bolstering nuclear force are a legitimate exercise of the right to self-defence by a sovereign state to put an end to the escalating moves of the U.S. for a nuclear war and firmly guarantee peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region.

    But, Japan is branding the measures for self-defence as "threat" and "provocation".

    The chief executive of Japan reeled off a litany of balderdashes about the strict implementation of "sanctions resolutions" and the necessity of adopting a new resolution during the G-7 Summit recently held in Italy, claiming that now is the time to put pressure on the DPRK, not have dialogue with it. The chief Cabinet secretary, the foreign minister and other ministers of Japan vied with each other in vociferating about an additional "independent sanctions" against the DPRK.

    Japan incites pressure and sanctions against the DPRK here and there. It is aimed at providing a legal justification to push ahead with its militarization by cooking up a fascist law at any cost under the pretext of "threat" from the DPRK.

    Now voices are loudly ringing from among the people and political circle in Japan against the moves of right-wing forces to revise its "Pacifist Constitution" into a war constitution so as to turn Japan into a war state and put the whole country under watch and fascistize it under the signboard of "measures against terrorism".

    It is an extremely foolish act that the Japanese authorities are running amuck to realize the wild ambition for revival of militarism and reinvasion while branding the DPRK's measures for self-defence as "provocation" and "threat".

    The DPRK does never pardon but keeps tabs on new crimes committed by Japan while taking an issue with even the DPRK's exercise of sovereignty, far from repenting of all its past hideous crimes against the Korean people.

    As already declared, the DPRK will make more highly precision and diversified nukes and nuclear striking means till the U.S. and its vassal forces come to their senses and make a proper choice.

    Only the U.S. military objects for aggression in Japan have been within the optical sight of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army. But if Japan persists in hostility toward the DPRK, following the U.S. and not properly seeing the reality, the target of the DPRK will be changed. -0-

KCNA Commentary Calls for Removal of "Preparatory Committee for Unification"

 Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities are showing the sign of keeping the "Preparatory Committee for Unification", set up during the Park Geun Hye regime.

    They seek to change its title to the "People's Committee for Unification", claiming that it is needed to maintain the function and role of the former committee meant to "get ready for unification by taking deep breath".

    This connivance at the crimes against the reunification which brought about indelible consequence to the nation is a clear revelation of the stand of the present south Korean authorities to the reunification, the cherished desire of the nation and crucial issue.

    The "Preparatory Committee for Unification" has served as a means for executing the policy of confrontation with the fellow countrymen by traitor Park Geun Hye, which put the worst obstacles in the way of the country's reunification. It remains like a dagger stabbed in the chest of the nation for its original purport and reactionary nature.

    In 2014, Park set up the "Committee" as a panel directly under the control of "president" while crying out for "getting ready for unification" and "good chance for unification" in pursuance of her ambition for "unification through absorption".

    The formation of the "Committee" was for realizing the ambition for "unification by prevailing over communism", touted by her father "yusin" dictator.

    The traitor, buoyed by the dream of "unification through absorption", went desperate to work out the policies for escalating stand-off between social systems after setting up the body.

    The "second framed work for developing south-north ties" was confirmed, totally scrapping the issues which were stipulated in the October 4 declaration and the north and the south agreed to implement, typically the issue of setting up the special zone for peace and cooperation in West Sea, the issue of ending the current armistice system and building lasting peace mechanism.

    Not satisfied with the total denial of the north-south declarations, Park let the distorted segment of north-south summit minutes go public. She raked up human scum-like defectors from the north to malignantly slander the dignity and social system of the DPRK and stage anti-DPRK human rights smear campaign. She called for confrontation with the north abroad while harshly cracking down the forces supporting the June 15 declaration as part of her stepped-up racket for eliminating the "forces following the north".

    Bound by the spell of the ghost-like shaman that "unification will come within a few years", she trumpeted about "blueprint of peaceful reunification" and unsparingly shut down the Kaesong Industrial Zone, a product of the June 15 era that had barely been maintained.

    The successive south Korean conservative forces were all hell-bent on escalating confrontation with the north but never have there been such anti-reunification traitors like Park Geun Hye group which went desperate even by setting up "team for unification through absorption" involving those in authority, in political circle and non-government field.

    As differing ideologies and systems have existed for long in the north and the south, attempt at achieving "unification of social systems" and "unification through absorption" by way of extending the system of one party into the other party will only bring conflict.

    It is the unanimous wish of the Koreans that the "Preparatory Committee" has to be removed just like its inventor sternly punished by history.

    It is never a matter of sign. Deposit will give harm to people and surroundings if it is not cleaned in time.

    Those keen on prolonging the confrontation policy of Park Geun Hye group will meet the same miserable fate as their predecessors. -0-

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co.uk 
                       29th  of May  Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA)and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement on the 50th anniversary of the publication of the historic classic work of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG " ON THE QUESTIONS OF THE PERIOD OF TRANSITION FROM CAPITALISM TO SOCIALISM AND THE DICTATORSHIP OF THE PROLETARIAT"
  On the 25th of May it was 50 years since the great leader President KIM IL SUNG made public his historic Juche-orientated classic thesis  "ON THE QUESTIONS OF THE PERIOD OF TRANSITION FROM CAPITALISM TO SOCIALISM AND THE DICTATORSHIP OF THE PROLETARIAT".
 In the mid 1960s the socialist camp and international communist movement had become severely split due to modern revisionism and Left opportunism .The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG was determined to steer a fully independent course for Korean socialism and reject modern revisionism a
and Left opportunism. One question on which the modern revisionists and Left opportunists had caused a lot of damaging confusion on was the question of the transition period from capitalism to socialism and the the related issue of the dictatorship of the proletariat .In some countries serious losses were experienced in socialist construction due to incorrect theories.  comrade KIM IL SUNG
pointed out that "Like all other scientific and theoretical problems, the questions of the transition period and the dictatorship of the proletariat must also be solved from our Party’s Juche viewpoint. You should neither cling to propositions of the classics and try to settle the questions dogmatically nor be enthralled by the ideas of flunkeyism and try to interpret the issues as others do"
  So comrade KIM IL SUNG looked at the question from a fresh Juche-orientated viewpoint . Many years had passed since Marx and Lenin formulated their ideas on these questions. Moreover Marx's theories were elaborated with developed capitalist countries in mind. So the questions need to be studied anew from the standpoint of the DPRK's reality .
   The modern revisionists advocated dissolving the dictatorship of the proletariat,claiming that the transition to socialism ended the socialist revolution was complete. They went as far as to proclaim a "state of the whole people" . Comrade KIM IL SUNG criticised this wrongheaded views  saying that
 "This viewpoint stems from the ideological view of abandoning the class struggle against survivors of the overthrown exploiter classes internally, and internationally refraining from the world revolution, by choosing to live at peace with imperialism".
  He made it clear that class struggle continues under socialism and must be liquidated or slackened.
  Comrade KIM IL SUNG also criticised the Left opportunists for saying that the transition period only came to an end when the higher phase of communism was reached  pointing out that
"So, it is, in fact, tantamount to drawing no dividing line at all to regard the transition period as the period extending up to such a higher phase of communism. ".
  In the work comrade KIM IL SUNG puts forward a number of practical tasks to be undertaken in order to successfully advance towards the complete victory of socialism such as working-classizing and intellectualising the whole of society.
  This work is a brilliant work that showed how to avoid Rightist and Leftist deviations in building
socialism . It validity has been proved in practice because the DPRK successfully constructed socialism and did not collapse. It is a work worthy of deep study.
We commend to it the readers

Anniversary of Pyongyang Declaration Marked

 Pyongyang, April 20 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency Wednesday released an article "Victory of Juche Socialism Is Truth of History" to mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of the historic Pyongyang Declaration.

    The article said:

    A century has passed since the first proletarian government appeared on the earth. This year all the eyes of the world are on socialist Korea which has covered victory and glory without any mistake of its line and marking-time through generations.

    The Pyongyang Declaration "Let Us Defend and Advance the Cause of Socialism" was made public at a meeting of leaders and representatives of political parties of different countries aspiring to socialism in Pyongyang on April 20, Juche 81 (1992).

    The publication of the Pyongyang Declaration was a review on the history of the world socialist movement and a historic event declaring the new start of the socialist movement based on the Juche idea.

    Many famous works authored by leader Kim Jong Il including "On the Juche Idea," "Socialism of Our Country is a Socialism of Our Style as the Embodiment of the Juche Idea" and "Our Socialism Centred on the Masses Shall Not Perish" became the victorious banner for not only the Korean revolution but also the world socialist movement as they comprehensively clarified the Juche idea and on the basis of it the aspects of socialist society, lawful course of its construction, strategic target and line, working policies in all fields and concrete ways.

    In particular, "The Historical Lesson in Building Socialism and the General Line of Our Party", published on January 3, 1992 right after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, made the progressive mankind joyful while giving a deadly blow to those who talked rubbish about the destiny of socialism.

    Communist and workers' parties and other progressive parties of different countries aspiring after socialism could find the way of the reconstruction movement of socialism from the works of Kim Jong Il.

    The world progressive parties aspiring to socialism highly praised the Pyongyang Declaration as "the genuine Communist Manifesto in modern era" and expressed full support and approval for it. Even now many parties are joining in the ranks.

    After the publication of the Pyongyang Declaration Kim Jong Il made public "On the Fundamentals of Revolutionary Party Building," "Let Us Bring the Advantages of Our People's Government into Fuller Play," "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable" and other famous works to give repeated answers to the theoretical and practical problems arising in the Korean revolution and the world socialist movement.

    "Socialism Is a Science," his treatise published in Rodong Sinmun, the organ of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, put socialism on a new scientific foundation so that the people could overcome the historical limitation of the previous socialist theories and protect socialism from the imperialists' attack and more dynamically advance it.

    The U.S. and other reactionary forces of history, much upset by the fact that socialism became contemporary prevalence encouraged by the Pyongyang Declaration, hysterically launched the second "McCarthyism cyclone" again far from facing up to the trend of the times.

    The U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is an intensive revelation of anti-socialist moves and its epitome.

    Now it is driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the utmost crisis talking about "preemptive attack" on the DPRK. This frantic behavior clearly proves that our socialism is advancing and winning victory after victory.

    The strength that can move the world is neither money nor A-bomb, but the great idea.

    Socialism of the DPRK set the principle of independence in politics, self-support in the economy and self-reliance in national defence on the basis of the great Juche idea, the highest peak in the history of ideology of mankind. On the way, Korean socialism advances without an inch of deflection and concession.

    Korean socialism is guided by the great party and the great idea and it has the single-minded unity, that can never be perished even by nuclear weapons, and invincible military power and inexhaustible power of the people for self-development as motive power. Herein lies the key to ever-victory of Korean socialism.

    Korean socialism is advancing toward the rosy future of the 21st century in the van under the guidance of respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, another great man who is leading the grand march in the new century of Juche after formulating the revolutionary ideas of the great leaders as Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.

    Socialism of Juche is sure to win the final victory. -0-
