The WPK organized and aroused all party members and other people to accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Juche, holding fast to the banner of the great Juche idea and the Songun revolutionary line.
The WPK has worked hard to advance the socialist cause under the unprecedented trials and difficulties.
Under the grim situation, the WPK firmly adhered to the independent stand against imperialism and the socialist principle relying on the might of arms under the uplifted banner of Songun and thus led with confidence our revolution to victory.
As required by the prevailing situation and the developing revolution, the WPK advanced the strategic line of simultaneously pushing forward the economic construction and the building of nuclear force and worked hard for its implementation.

The WPK built the political and ideological power and invincible military power in which all the people are united in single mind.
By giving definite precedence to ideological education and political work with main stress consistently placed on ideology, our party brought up all the party members and other people to be steadfast revolutionary fighters who enshrined the firm faith that our party and system, our idea and cause are the best.
Regarding it as its strategic line to attach importance to youth throughout the period of leading the revolution, the WPK has trained the young people as successors to the revolution who carry forward the blood line of Juche, thus building the youth power without an equal in the world.
