"Let us build independent Europe under the banner of the Juche idea!- speech by Dr Dermot Hudson to the European Regional Seminar on the Juche Idea

                                                     

14th of September 2019


Comrades and friends ,Thank you for inviting me and giving me both the honour and privilege of speaking in this European Regional Seminar on the Juche Idea .I am sure that this seminar will be successful and make a big impact in advancing the study of the Juche idea in Europe. In today’s world a key question is for countries to maintain their independence and sovereignty. In this respect the DPRK leads the way . It is the most independent country in the world .As respected Marshal KIM JONG UN said  in his policy speech  "On Socialist Construction and the Internal and External Policies of the Government of the Republic at the Present Stage"

 Today the imperialists' willful violation of the sovereignty of other countries is growing more undisguised than ever before, and not a few countries are being forced into a miserable plight as they have no strength with which to defend themselves; in this world it is hard to find a country like our Republic that is steadfast in the principle of independence and assures the security of the State and the happiness of the people by its own efforts.Holding fast to the revolutionary line of independence in State building and activities is a consistent and immutable stand of our Republic.”

   These words of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN inspire us to fight for independence in Europe.
  We must apply the Juche idea in Europe by building an independent Europe under the banner of the Juche idea . All European countries should become independent .
 For us Juche followers in Britain is the question of leaving the European Union ,popularly known as Brexit .The government of Boris Johnson has pledged to leave the EU by the 31st of October this year. Will Britain  become more independent as a result or will it become even more dependent on US imperialism ? Will there be a reactionary Brexit representing the opinion of some narrow chauvinistic sections of the ruling class or will there be a People's Brexit benefiting the people of Britain , that we British Juche  idea followers must address.
 The  British people voted by a majority to leave the EU on the 23rd of June 2016 because the experience of membership of the EU  has been overwhelmingly negative : when Britain joined the old European Economic Community or Common Market(as the EU was then called) in the 1970s food prices sharply increased. Later unemployment increased as industries such as coal and steel went into decline mainly because of the EU. Most working class people in Britain did not support continued membership of the EU , membership of the EU is supported by the middle class and by the dominant sectors of monopoly and finance capital .As Juche idea followers we consider the working class the most independent and progressive class. In our opinion  Juche idea followers should embrace populism not elitism !
 It should be remembered that the EU was founded as the  economic counterpart of NATO and as an anti-communist bulwark against the USSR and other socialist countries. Moreover the original foundation document of the EU the Treaty of Rome stipulates that the EU is based on the principle of the free market,  
  Membership of the EU (and indeed NATO as well) deprives Britain of political independence . Of course will would like to see a referendum on NATO Membership as well. The EU by stipulating the so-called 'free movement of goods and capital' , completely rules out the idea any member nation building its own self-reliant , independent national economy .The EU is fundamentally anti-socialist and commits member states to having a market economy. . Other European countries may wish to follow the lead of Britain and free themselves from the straightjacket of the European Union which denies the independence of its member states.
  We believe that an independent Britain should be an equal partner of an independent Europe.
     Europe is still subject to US domination and interference . The domination of the US is particularly acute in Britain which has US troops stationed on its soil .  Successive British governments have dispatched many troops to help the US imperialists in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan. This is against the wishes of the vast majority of the British people who desire peace. There is not a ‘special relationship” but vassalage and submission to the interests of the US imperialists. The domination of US imperialist “trash culture” is prevalent in Britain,with most films shown on TV being from the US and many British TV programmes being simply copies of US ones. Pop singers sing in an American style. Such so called culture is in fact a poison turning people into mindless morons and self-indulgent beings  .Many other European countries are dominated by the US culturally lack and independent culture.
The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL  lucidly referred to the insidious process of the the obliteration of national cultures in his work "On Preserving the Juche Character and National Character of the Revolution and Construction.“ saying that
“The imperialists’ reactionary policy of suppressing the Juche character of nations and obliterating national traits is now taking on a new form in the guise of gangster-like fuss about the trend towards a “monolithic” world .In the situation where each country and nation shape their destiny with their own ideas and systems, there can be no “monolithic” world which covers all spheres of politics, economy and culture. With social development and ties and interchange among different nations becoming closer, common features increase in the lives of nations. However, this process always presupposes the independent and individualistic development of nations and takes place on the basis of such development.
The imperialists have cooked up the trend of a “monolithic world” for the purpose of reducing the whole world to the Western-style “free world” and subjugating and assimilating all nations to themselves . All countries and nations must see clearly the danger of the imperialist policy of obliterating nations which is pursued in the name of the trend towards a “monolithic” world and must intensify the struggle to defeat the dominationist manoeuvres of the imperialists”.
Economic domination by the US still exists to some extent though this has been weakened by the decline of the dollar and the rise of the European Union ,however US monopolies still have footholds in the European continent and in particular have penetrated into the former socialist countries of Eastern Europe many of which have been turned into vassal states and pro US sycophants by the reactionary rulers that seized power after 1989. The European Union has tended to side with the US on most issues for example the EU has played a most reactionary anti DPRK , anti-socialist role by backing US imperialism's “human rights” offensive against the DPRK and imposed sanctions on the DPRK and Venezulea.
  Supranational bodies such as the IMF, World Bank , EU and European Central Bank have imposed austerity and spending cuts in a number of countries . Some countries have become virtual appendages of bodies such as the EU , IMF and World Bank. Economic independence and self-reliance are not only desirable but is an absolute necessity .
 To achieve real independence European countries should not only expel US troops and bases from their soil but also build independent ,self-reliant national economies and build an independent national culture.  In the past we we formed the Juche Idea Study Group of England , some backward and ignorant elements opposed us saying what we were doing had no relevance to the country but the Juche Idea shows the way to achieve independence and the experience of Juche Korea is a great example for an independent Britain and an independent Europe !

FORWARD TO AN INDEPENDENT ,SELF-RELIANT PEOPLE'S BRITAIN
FORWARD TO AN INDEPENDENT EUROPE !
LONG LIVE THE JUCHE IDEA
LONG LIVE JUCHE KOREA !
LONG LIVE DEAR RESPECTED MARSHAL KIM JONG UN !

During the first day many speeches were made about applying the Juche idea to Europe. In his speech Dr Dermot Hudson said  "We must apply the Juche idea in Europe by building an independent Europe under the banner of the Juche idea . All European countries should become independent .

 For us Juche followers in Britain is the question of leaving the European Union ,popularly known as Brexit .The government of Boris Johnson has pledged to leave the EU by the 31st of October this year.

  Jean Claude Martini of KFA Italy said that " The question of sovereignty has always been a central question in the international affairs of the modern world.... What does the struggle for sovereignty in Europe mean ? It means exploiting the contradictions between imperialist groups in the interests of our common cause , creating tens of Brexits all around Europe but without Theresa May , Boris Johnson and other representatives of the capitalist exploiting class".

The seminar adopted a letter to dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

 On the second day general secretary Ri Song Chol of KASS gave a lecture on titled "Miraculous  Reality of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea brought about thanks to Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism 'in which he said "The DPRK's socialism where the people-first principle is being applied is the most superior one ensuring the worthwhile political life to the masses"

The Bulgarian Preparatory Committee hosted a meal at the Forest Restaurant for us which even had live entertainment . There was also a sightseeing programme on the Sunday morning which included some buildings from the socialist era in Bulgaria though regrettably the tomb of Georgi Dimitrov had been blown up by mad anti-communist reactionaries  although a metro station named after him still exists.
  All in all it was a very productive and pleasant meeting .

Sacred life of great woman revolutionary


 It’s been 70 years since comrade Kim Jong Suk, anti-Japanese heroine, who devoted herself to accomplish Juche revolutionary cause in her early years until her last breath. 

Her revolutionary life was the most brilliant one of woman revolutionary true to the cause of President Kim Il Sung.

From the arduous anti-Japanese struggle to the days of new national construction after the liberation, Kim Jong Suk, made immortal contribution to the cause of Juche revolutionary true to President Kim Il Sung, the sun of the nation.



 Comrade Kim Jong Suk, who was the model in defending the headquarters of the Korean revolution with her life in the period of anti-Japanese armed struggle, also encouraged the Korean women and people to the campaign for building the country advanced by the President after the liberation.  

Grieving over the national division caused by the outside forces, she devoted herself to achieve the unity and reunification of the country day and night, upholding the idea of independent national reunification of President Kim Il Sung. 

In those days, broad segments of south Koreans praised great personality of Kim Jong Suk who dedicated herself to the country, upholding the high intention of the President.  

There was Ryo Un Hyeong, chairman of the People’s Party, who was popular in south Korea after the liberation.

I’ve met many so many heroines not only in Korea but also in other countries in my lifetime but I’ve never met woman like Kim Jong Suk who was crack shot, had political insight and tender-hearted woman, he said.

She made titanic contributions to bring up Leader Kim Jong Il, the son of Mt. Paektu.

Her sacred life will be remembered in the hearts of the Korean nation and inspires a vigorous advance of the Korean nation led by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

Behave Prudently!






On August 30, the Solidarity for People's Sovereignty, the Youth Party and the Progressive Federation of University Students of south Korea called a press conference in Seoul in denunciation of the US attitude to the expiration of GSOMIA.


Japan, far from apologizing past crimes including compulsory labor and comfort women it committed, regards south Korea as an enemy, the abrogation of GSOMIA is a due decision, a member of the Progressive Federation of University Students noted.  

                 

We are driven into great fury by the fact that the US Congress and the Secretary of State Pompeo expressed their regret at the south Korean authorities’ decision of abrogation of GSOMIA, while putting pressure upon south Korea, he added. 

The US has always stood by Japan from long time ago. In 1905, Korea had been deprived of its right of diplomacy and military and sovereignty by the conclusion of Gatsura-Taft secret agreement. After Korea’s liberation, the US divided the south and the north of Korea into two not Japan a defeated nation, a member of the Solidarity for People's Sovereignty said.

Co-representative of the Youth Party pointed out that the US has applied a blind eye to Japan’s desperate effort of remilitarization and denial of past crimes.

They concluded the press conference with a tear of the flag of rising sun shedding rays and the Stars and Stripes, shouting slogans against the US.

Japan Hit for Illegal Intrusion into DPRK's Exclusive Economic Zone: Spokesperson for DPRK Foreign Ministry

Japan Hit for Illegal Intrusion into DPRK's Exclusive Economic Zone: Spokesperson for DPRK Foreign Ministry
Pyongyang, September 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on September 17 with regard to Japan's intrusion into our exclusive economic zone.
On August 23 and 24, the patrol boat and ships of Japan Coast Guard were chased out by the self-defensive measures of the DPRK when those made illegal intrusion into our exclusive economic zone.
The expulsion of the Japanese ships from our zone is a just and righteous exercise of our sovereign rights.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK sternly alerted Japan through diplomatic channel to the latter's need to take due steps for heading off any possible reoccurrence of such acts of intruding into our zone and obstructing the activities of our fishing vessels. -0-

Self-Reliance Is Consistent Line to Be Maintained in State Building and Activities: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, September 17 (KCNA) -- There is no immutable mode in developing the state and social system, but the fundamental principle of progress and development that one should solve everything and open a shortcut to a leap with one's own efforts in any case does not change, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article, and goes on:

Self-reliance is the core in state building and activities and the line that should be consistently maintained and embodied.

The mode of development based on self-reliance is not new to us.

The Workers' Party of Korea that put up the banner of independence has put forward self-reliance as the lifeline of state-building in the whole period of revolutionary leadership and has neither known an inch of deflection nor a trifling deviation from the orbit of self-reliance and self-development.

It is the fixed determination and will of the Party to build up national economic power in the shortest span of time and successfully attain the goals set by us by giving fullest play to the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance, the mode of struggle peculiar to the Korean revolutionaries and their stamina of creation.

If one does not believe in one's strength, one is afraid of pent-up difficulties and does not work to outpace others. Then one will harbor illusions about others with increasing dependency on them.

The revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and the fighting traits are, indeed, our asset more precious than billions of money and wealth and a sure guarantee for the development and prosperity of the DPRK. That's why the Party puts particular emphasis on the need to turn self-reliance into social customs and intensify education in self-reliance as never before.

All the officials, Party members and other working people should bear in mind the faith that self-reliance is way out for us and the only and one way for advance and development and discharge their responsibility and role in the on-going grand revolutionary march. -0-

Intensified Class Education Is Consistent Policy of WPK: Rodong Sinmun


Pyongyang, September 16 (KCNA) -- To intensify class education is a very important issue that should not be neglected even a moment in accomplishing the cause of socialism, and the consistent policy of the Workers' Party of Korea says Rodong Sinmun Monday in an article.

In order to firmly prepare the popular masses to be vanguard fighters resolutely struggling against the enemy by preserving the revolutionary principle and class stand under any circumstances, it is very important to dynamically conduct class education, the article notes, and goes on:

We should cement our political and ideological position to be steel-strong by intensifying class education with good methodology in order to firmly preserve and successfully carry out the socialist cause.

Form and method of class education should be constantly developed as required by the developing times to thoroughly equip all people with strong anti-imperialist class consciousness.

The new generations, who have grown up happily, hearing about but not experiencing exploitation and oppression, have now emerged as the main force of the revolutionary ranks. This reality calls for further raising the degree of class education.

As a leopard cannot change its spots, the true nature of the class enemy can never change. Children do not naturally become revolutionaries though their parents are unyielding revolutionaries. To neglect class education among the new generations is just a suicidal act of offering the class position of the revolution to the enemy.

Party and working people's organizations at all levels and officials are obliged to intensify class education, well aware of the demand of the times and the revolution, and thus firmly consolidate the revolutionary position of the country. -0-

The Association for the Study of Songun Politics ,the  Juche Idea Study Group of England , the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA ) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification (BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement  in support of the director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK made on Monday 16th of September :
  The director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK issued a statement welcoming the holding of high level negotiations between the US and DPRK to be held in the coming weeks  The statement expressed the hope that the meeting would be a good meeting .
  The statement , however, cautioned that the US could either bring a proposal to the meeting which would be conducive to developing good relations between the DPRK and US or could precipitate a  crisis . Basically  as the statement of the   of the director general says "In other words, the DPRK-U.S. dialogue suggests two options--crisis and chance."
  The statement clarifies the DPRK's stance that discussion on denculearisation can only take place once any threats to the DPRK's system are removed and any obstructions to the development of the DPRK are removed . This of course means that the removal of sanctions on the DPRK and an end to threats against the DPRK . It is indeed noteworthy that the US has imposed sanctions against supposed DPRK entities on the false charges of " hacking " at the same time as they have announced dialogue with the DPRK .
 We support the just stand of the DPRK and believe that if the US should completely and irreversibly end its hostile policy towards the DPRK .

KCNA Commentary Warns against Harassing Regional Peace and Stability

Pyongyang, September 15 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is getting all the more reckless in its aggressive military acts.

In August it held "latter half south-U.S. combined commanding post exercise" against the DPRK. It also staged large-scale naval combined drill with Japan for over 10 days and in its wake started the one month-long joint large-scale military drill simulating the "contingency on the Korean peninsula" from August 26.

This is another serious military provocation against the DPRK and a dangerous act of threatening peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and the region.

The broad international community now hopes more than ever the parties responsible for the situation on the Korean peninsula would think and act with reason.

The U.S. which signed the historic June 12 DPRK-U.S. joint statement is under obligation to stop all military acts rattling and antagonizing the dialogue partner.

But since the start of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue process, the U.S. has never stopped DPRK-targeted military exercises of aggressive and provocative nature as evidenced by the utterance of the U.S. forces commander in south Korea that it is not just announced publicly but exercises are further intensified.

Clear is what impact the saber-rattling will have on the situation on the Korean peninsula as those war drills are rehearsed more cunningly under the scenario where the dialogue partner is defined as an enemy and the target of pressure.

Matter is that such a peace-wrecking act is not just attributable to the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK.

As known, the ultimate goal of Asia strategy pursued by the U.S. is to contain big regional powers and lord it over in the whole Asian region.

Big powers in the region are openly described as potential rivals in speeches made by U.S. politicians calling for world supremacy and THAAD, Aegis Ashore and other monster-like weapons have been already deployed in the region close to those counties or their deployment plan has been confirmed. The joint military exercises under way in Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean clearly prove the real aim sought by the U.S.

The frequent joint military exercises masterminded by the U.S. in and around the Korean peninsula are not irrelevant with this.

What can not be overlooked is the fact that Japan is thoughtlessly joining the saber-rattling, considering the exercises as a golden opportunity for realizing the wild ambition for militarist revival and reinvasion of the Korean peninsula.

The military nexus between the U.S. and the Japanese reactionaries extremely endangers the peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and the Asian region.

Absolutely intolerable are the aggressive war moves of the trigger-happy forces going against the desire of the international community and the trend of the times. -0-

 On the 18th of September 2018 the supreme leader respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  held the 5th inter-Korean summit with the south Korean chief executive Moon Jae In in Pyongyang . The summit saw many deeply emotional and stirring events such as the visit of Moon Jae In to the sacred mountain of Mt Paektu.
 The September Joint Declaration was signed which committed both sides to reduce tension by not holding military exercises and to work together for the peace ,prosperity and  reunification . The September Joint Declaration was a big step forward on the road towards a lasting peace and to reunification .
 Unfortunately the south Korean side has not implemented its commitments it agreed to in the declaration. Instead they have severely undermined the peace process by holding military exercises with the US as well as importing advanced military equipment . Shame on them !
 Our organisations urge south Korea to abide by the terms agreed to  in the September Joint Declaration.
 Forward to peace ,prosperity and reunification !

Director General of Department of U.S. Affairs of Foreign Ministry of DPRK Releases Statement

                                                     
Pyongyang, September 16 (KCNA) -- The director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Monday made public the following statement:

It is fortunate that the U.S. has repeatedly expressed its stand to tackle an issue through dialogue and negotiations.

I hope that the working-level negotiations expected to be held in a few weeks will be a good meeting between the DPRK and the U.S.

A proposal that the U.S. put forward at the negotiations may improve the relations and, on the contrary, may add to the hostility towards each other.

In other words, the DPRK-U.S. dialogue suggests two options--crisis and chance.

In this sense, the upcoming working-level negotiations will be an occasion decisive of the future road of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue

Clear and invariable is the DPRK's stand.

The discussion of denuclearization may be possible when threats and hurdles endangering our system security and obstructing our development are clearly removed beyond all doubt.

Whether the DPRK-U.S. negotiations will be a window for chance or an occasion to precipitate crisis is entirely up to the U.S. -0-

Swiss Guests Visit AINDF Pyongyang Mission

Pyongyang, September 12 (KCNA) -- Martin Lotscher, chairman of the Switzerland-Korea Committee, and his party who are on a visit to the DPRK visited the Pyongyang mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front (AINDF) on Thursday.

Chief Pak Su Chol and members of the mission greeted the guests before having a talk.

At the talk they informed each other of the activities of the AINDF and the Switzerland-Korea Committee and discussed the matters for boosting mutual solidarity.

The chief said that south Korean people from all walks of life are longing for and admiring at the DPRK which is demonstrating the dignity of the nation and national power under the leadership of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un despite all sanctions and pressure of hostile forces with the might of single-minded unity and self-reliance and self-development.

He introduced in detail the struggle of the south Korean people against the reckless arms buildup and aggressive war exercises of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities.

Martin Lotscher said that through his Pyongyang visit he could understand better the fact that peace and security on the Korean peninsula and the region are being maintained despite evermore undisguised dangerous military provocative moves of the U.S. and south Korean authorities, adding this is ascribable to the tremendous national power of the DPRK led by HE Kim Jong Un, the peerlessly great man.

The struggle of the AINDF and south Korean people, that are ardently revering for HE Kim Jong Un as the lodestar for national reunification and dashing forward to the accomplishment of the cause of independent reunification, is sure to win, he said, and expressed his will to wage more active solidarity activities in support of the just cause of the Korean nation and against the imperialist aggressive forces in the future, too. -0-

  Some seven decades have passed since Madame Kim Jong Suk the heroine of the anti-Japanese war passed away at the early age of 32 years after a life of arduous revolutionary struggle for the emancipation of woman and the independence of the Korean people. We Juche idea and Songun idea followers recall her great exploits .
                         
 Madame Kim Jong Suk was born into a humble working family in Hoeryong but took the road of revolution at the early age joining the struggle for the  independence of Korea from Japanese imperialism.Madame Kim Jong Suk became an ardent communist revolutionary and anti- imperialist fighter  in her youth. She joined the Anti-Japanese People's Guerrilla Army,commanded by the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung throwing herself into the sacred struggle for the liberation of Korea from the iron heel of Japanese imperialism.
  During the anti-Japanese armed struggle Madame Kim Jong Suk distinguished herself as a great partisan and crack-shot . She was also the bodyguard of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. She was a paragon, a role model of loyalty .
    Madam Kim Jong Suk  was the pioneer of the communist revolutionary women's movement. Her teachings  offer profound inspiration and guidance  for the progressive and revolutionary women of the world.  Kim Jong Suk was a shining example of communist womanhood.After liberation Madame Kim Jong Suk built up the Democratic Women's Union of Korea, struggling against opportunism and factionalism. She led the work of freeing women from the shackles of feudalism.
Madame Kim Jong Suk made a profound contribution to the building of a new democratic Korea after liberation in 1945 . She worked hard to build a new Korea of Juche, without rest or let-up. She took part in the building of the people's armed forces of People's Korea , thus enriching the Songun revolutionary cause. Her life was most exemplary.
  Madame Kim Jong Suk gave a revolutionary upbringing to the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il  so that he would become a future great leader and great commander of Songun.
   The life of Madame Kim Jong Suk is an example to revolutionary and progressive women of the world . She was a role model for true proletarian feminism and Juche-orientated women's liberation.
   Despite the passing of some t]70 years , the memory of Madame Kim Jong Suk , the mother of Korea, burns brightly in the hearts of Juche Idea and Songun Idea followers  and true friends of People's Korea.

In socialist Korea housing is free of charge

from http://www.uriminzokkiri.com Ideas of State Building



Today the Korean people are vigorously promoting the work for accomplishing the socialist cause by strictly adhering to the ideas and principles of State building elucidated by the great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.

The great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist ideas of State building contain in a concentrated way the ideas of, and exploits in, State building of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who developed the DPRK into the prestigious and strong socialist State; these ideas also indicate clearly the ways and means for accomplishing the socialist cause with the State government as a political weapon.

Kim Il Sung advanced the original line of building a people’s government based on the immortal Juche idea and created the precious tradition of building a government in the flames of the anti-Japanese armed struggle. He solved all the problems arising in realizing the cause of State building even in the difficult circumstances after Korea’s liberation on August 1945, in conformity with the people’s demands for independence and their interests and by relying on their strength. He is the founding father of socialist Korea who built the people-centred socialist State by fully embodying the idea of believing in the people as in heaven in State building and activities.

His Juche-oriented ideas of and exploits in State building were brilliantly carried forward by Kim Jong Il. With his firm pledge to glorify Korea true to Kim Il Sung’s great ideas in his early years, Kim Jong Il devoted himself to building the DPRK into a socialist State with invincible might. Shouldering the heavy burden of building a socialist power, he made an endless journey of super-intense forced march, taking not a moment’s rest, in order to lay the powerful political, military and economic foundations for achieving the eternal prosperity of the nation. Even in such trying periods as the Arduous March, he defended the dignity and sovereignty of the country and the nation by solving all the problems of State building and activities in Korean style and led socialist construction to victory, demonstrating to the whole world the mettle and strength of the DPRK.

The geopolitical position of Korea is the same as ever, but the country has made remarkable progress and eye-opening changes in such a short period of history. These achievements are inconceivable apart from the great leaders’ exploits in State building.

The great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist ideas of State building clarify that the revolutionary line of independence should be carried out in State building and activities, that the people-first principle be applied to the letter in all aspects of State activities and social life and that Party leadership over the overall affairs of the State be provided in every way possible.

The DPRK raised independence as the life of the Korean revolution and the fundamental cornerstone for State building and has advanced the revolution and construction in its own way while categorically rejecting worship of big countries, dogmatism and the high-handedness and pressure by outside forces. As a result, it has been built and developed to be a socialist State, independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, and it is still demonstrating to the world its prestige and might as a powerful independent country. Holding fast to the revolutionary line of independence in State building and activities is the consistent and immutable stand of the DPRK.

The DPRK has thoroughly applied the people-first principle to the letter in all aspects of State activities and social life. With a view to carrying forward and holding up the ennobling ideas and intentions of the great leaders who believed in the people as in heaven and devoted their lives to their interests, the government defined the essence of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, the guiding ideology of the Korean revolution, as the people-first principle and set it as the greatest priority to apply the Juche-oriented view on the people, a people-oriented philosophy, in the activities of the Party and the State.

The DPRK has satisfactorily effected unified leadership over the State and society by relying on the revolutionary guiding ideology and scientific strategy and tactics advanced by the Workers’ Party of Korea, thereby performing its missions of representing the rights of the masses of the people to independence, organizing their creative abilities and activities, taking care of their lives and protecting their interests.

The great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist ideas of State building serve as an inspiring banner to add eternal brilliance to the DPRK as the State of the great leaders and build it as an independent powerful State that no one can dare provoke, a people’s State in which the people’s ideals are fully realized and a country that advances by giving full scope to its unlimited potential for development.

The Supreme Leader learned in detail about the indexes to be confirmed in the test-fire while measuring the time of combat deployment of super-large multiple rocket launcher.

Two rounds of test-fire took place.

The recent test-fire was in full line with its purpose and served as an occasion to clearly decide the next-stage orientation to complete the weapon system.

Japan Urged to Abandon Its Wild Ambition to Seize Tok Island: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, September 10 (KCNA) -- Japanese reactionaries have gone to extremes in their wild ambition to seize Tok Island.

Of late the Japanese defence minister claimed that Tok Island is clearly pertaining to Japan in terms of history and international law. His sheer sophism provokes a side-splitting laughter.

Bellicose remarks that the "Self-Defense Forces" should be dispatched to expel illegal occupants and there is no option but a war to take back Tok Island are heard even from the Japanese Diet.

This is an expression of the true nature of brigandish Japan obsessed by the greed for territory and the concentrated revelation of shameless distortion of history and the wild ambition to seize Tok Island.

Japan is the only and one country that publishes fabricated history textbooks, far from giving proper education to the rising generation, and employs every possible means such as setting "Takeshima (Tok Island) Day" to stoke aggression.

Japan's distortion and far-fetched assertion based on the fascist doctrine "telling a lie a hundred times makes people believe it as truth" are all an absurd jargon and an intolerable challenge to the sovereignty of the Korean nation.

Tok Island is part of the inalienable territory of the Korean nation from geographical, historical and legal points of view.

This is an immovable truth of history.

Tok Island is the territory of Korea where the Korean people have reclaimed and lived before B.C. and has nothing to do with Japan that came into being after A.D., evidenced by "History of Koryo Kingdom", "Geographical Book Attached to the True Records of King Sejong" and Samguksagi (Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms) and other old documents and data and a secret document opened to the public in 2015 proving that in the early 1900's the village head of Oki Island of Japan, when asked about his viewpoint on Tok Island at the Cabinet, said that Ullung Island and Tok Island are all the islands in the East Sea of Korea.

The Cairo Declaration and the Potsdam Declaration and memorandums Nos. 677 and 1033 signed and issued by the General Headquarters of the Allied Powers during and after the Second World War clearly confirm the legal status of Tok Island as the territory of Korea.

Japan's persistent "dominium over Tok Island" cannot be construed as mere ignorance of history and laws or revelation of the temper of born impostor.

It is the ulterior intention of the ill-natured Japanese reactionaries to provide conditions favorable to the realization of their militaristic ambition for overseas aggression by distorting and fabricating history to their tastes.

Japan makes no scruple of distorting history in a bid to realize its wild ambition for reinvasion.

Japan has already turned into a "country capable of going to war" and dangerous forces of aggression. It is whitewashing and justifying its past crimes in an effort to realize the pipedream of the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere".

It is making desperate efforts to hoist the blood-stained war criminal flag at the venue of Olympic Games symbolic of peace.

Justice is sure to win. This is iron truth shown by history.

All the Koreans and the international community keep close watch at the moves of Japan watching for a chance for reinvasion of the territory where the Korean people have lived down through generations.

Japan should be mindful that it is precipitating destruction and give up its wild ambition to seize the inalienable territory of Korea. -0-

The Association for the Study of Songun Politics ,the  Juche Idea Study Group of England , the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA ) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification (BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement in support of the statement of the 1st Vice Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Ms  Choe Son Hui concerning holding talks with the US:
   Responding to recent comments by US negotiators and by the US state secretary Ms Choe expressed the DPRK's willingness to enter into talks with the US at the end of September . Ms Choe reiterated the basic standpoint of the DPRK which had been clarified by the April policy speech of Marshal KIM JONG UN that for negotiations to continue and to bear fruit  the US must change its stance towards the DPRK and enter into meaningful negotiations .
 However , Ms Choi warns that should the US resort to old style anachronistic tactics then DPRK-US negotiations may come to an end .So basically it is up to US whether negotiations with the DPRK are successful or whether they fail.
 We support the just and correct stand of the DPRK.
