KCNA Commentary on Disgusting Scramble for Power in LKP

Pyongyang, January 31 (KCNA) -- The political world of south Korea has recently been jibe-trading centre owing to the convention of the "Liberal Korea Party" (LKP).

More than ten candidates for the representative of the party are involved in brawl desperate enough to call a dogfight.

Even Hwang Kyo An who tried to improve his "image" outside the political world joined in the scramble for power, which reminds people of a bloody fight.

South Korean media ridicule the party convention, a laughing stock.

Riffraffs try to hold hegemony over the party branded as "living dead party", which is a disgusting political cartoon.

It is reasonable to discuss the dissolution of the party as it is the one of conservative traitors that was driven into a ditch of history by a stern judgment by the people.

But LKP is holding the party convention for the election of representative. This is a criminal act, an open challenge to candlelight demonstrators.

The south Korean public ousted traitor Park Geun Hye from power and, at the same time, punished the party of the traitors through fierce candlelight resistance ever known in history.

However, the "Saenuri Party", a conservative party, renamed itself "Liberal Korea Party", watching for a chance to take revenge on public mindset under the signboard of "innovation" and "renovation".

The party has gone the lengths of claiming that the impeachment against Park Geun Hye was wrong, that it is time to regain the impaired reputation and that it is necessary to lay a new foundation to come back to power.

The ambition of the conservative group of traitors for the seizure of power has reached the extremes.

All of the candidates for the representative are the first to be eliminated as they took the lead in the confrontation with the fellow countrymen and treacheries at the beck and call of traitor Park Geun Hye.

They are involved in the dogfight to grab the post of representative, but they have the same final purpose, the return of conservatives to power.

LKP scramble for power, quite indifferent to the trend of the times and the desire of the public, invites vigilance of the south Koreans from all walks of life.

The conservative traitors are seriously mistaken

Whoever holds the office of representative and any faction that holds hegemony are doomed to ruin as they go against the public sentiment -0-

Revival of A-class criminal

Revival of A-class criminal

Some days ago, former Prime Minister of south Korea Hwang Gyo-ahn joined the Liberty Korea Party.
Hwang served as the minister of justice and prime minster in the days of the Park Geun-hye regime and retired from political life with downfall of Park as he had been involved in fascist misrule, treacherous move and irregularities and corruptions. 
He worked hard to in the work of the dissolution of the Unified Progressive Party, made a mess of investigation into the sunken ferry Sewol and tried to trample down the people who took part in the candlelight resistance to impeach Park Geun-hye at the point of the bayonet.
Upon hearing his enrollment in the LKP, the south Korean people from various circles are complaining about him.  
The LKP has turned into pro-Park Geun-hye party, Hwang evaded his military service under the pretext of nettle rash and casted covetous eyes on power, the Party for Democracy and Peace strongly reproved.
The anti-Park Geun-hye group in the LKP is rising against him, while sneering at him as a politically impeached person with Park, troublemaker and wrecker of the party. 
Hwang’s entry into the party is a frontal challenge to the candlelightdemonstrators who are desirous of justice and democracy and if Hwang’s political life is allowed south Korea would be reduced into a barren land of human rights.

London 30th January Juche 108(2019)
   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) , the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP) and the UK Preparatory Committee for the Day of the Shining Star  issued a statement on the 77th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il:

                                   

      Comrade Kim Jong Il was born the son of guerrillas on February 16th 1942.  Our  delegation visited his birthplace at Mt Paektu in August 2017 He did not come from a privileged background but was brought up in clothes made from old uniforms and spent his childhood in a simple log cabin. He witnessed the severe anti Japanese war and later as a young boy also witnessed the Fatherland Liberation War against the American imperialist aggressors the sworn enemy of the Korean people.
 Comrade Kim Jong Il  lived a most simple life . As a student he participated in the construction of Pyongyang. He also worked a textile machinery factory at the number 26 lathe. Thus comrade Kim Jong Il was a true people's leader , always with the people sharing both hardship and joy with them. Often comrade Kim Jong Il did not celebrate his own birthday and dressed in an old parka.
  At the beginning of the 1960s Kim Jong Il gave guidance to the historic Seoul Ryu  Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the KPA . In June 1964 he started work at the central committee of the Workers' Party of Korea. As well as  practical day to day leadership he developed the ideology and theory of the WPK . He systematised the Juche Idea and created Kimilsungism . Because of his skills as theoretician and ideologist plus his modest style as a people's leader he was acclaimed as the successor to the great leader President  Kim Il Sung .
                                                


The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il steered the DPRK through the difficult period of the "arduous march  ". Even though the DPRK faced difficulties he made sure that a high level of social benefits was maintained . Vans with soya milk for children were always seen on the streets of the DPRK in this period.
    The ideas of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung on national reunification were thoroughly applied and developed in depth by the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il . He made a decisive breakthrough in the struggle for national reunification by having the June 15 Declaration signed with the then south Korean chief executive Kim Dae Jung in 2000.
     Declaring "Expect No Change  from me!" , comrade Kim Jong Il combated the pressure and machinations of US imperialism . He upheld the banner of Juche  further supplemented it with the Songun idea and Songun politics  the treasured sword for defending independence.
    Today the DPRK is the world's most independent country . It is seen as a country that does not take nonsense from any imperialists or big powers . This is the legacy of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il, a legacy that is today further developed and carried forward by the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un , the one and only successor the Juche cause.
    We  joinwith the Korean people and world progressives  in commemorating the great leader generalissimo Kim Jong Il on the 77th anniversary of his birth .

Yang Soong-tae in custody

Yang Soong-tae in custody 

On Jan. 24, Yang Soong-tae, former president of the Supreme Court, who has been buffeted by criticism of all circles, was brought into custody.
He was the head of the Ministry of Justice, who was placed under arrest as a suspect for the first time in 71-year long history of the Ministry of Justice.
He is under suspicion of forty crimes during his six-year tenure of presidency of the Supreme Court from September of 2011.
Broad segments of south Korean people have strongly demanded a thorough investigation into Yang from last year when his judicial scandal came to light.  
However, the conservative forces including the opposition Liberty Korea Party are bent on covering his crime, saying his arrest is most shameful and miserable in history.  
On the very day of Yang’s arrest, the Party for Democracy and Peace said that it is punishment by the people and stressed that it hopes the Ministry of Justice to be the one respected by the people.
It is quite natural that Yang deserves a severe punishment.

The national memorial committee for marking the 10th anniversary of Yongsan disaster composed of 140 civic bodies called a news conference outside the Cheongwadae on January 15 to strongly demand a strict investigation into the disaster caused by the Lee Myung-bak regime and punishment of those responsible for it.
The Yongsan disaster took place on January 20, 2009. The then Lee Myung-bak regime forcibly evacuated the residents from the slum quarters without providing any living convenience by mobilizing the riot police. The disaster took lives of six people.
On Jan. 17, street vendors and evacuees held a rally to mark the 10th anniversary of the disaster. No statute of limitations is applicable to the state-sponsored violence, Kim Seok-gi (a lawmaker of the Liberty Korea Party), the then Director of the National Police Agency should be held accountable for the disaster and the ex-president Lee Myung-bak can never escape the buck for the disaster, they pointed out.
The tragic disaster happened in Yongsan are being witnessed across south Korea in various forms no matter how much water may flow under the bridge, they would strive to achieve the right to live and establish power for the people in unity with workers and people, they said. It is the way to make investigation into death of evacuees in Yongsan and console the spirit of the dead, they noted.

  71 years ago on the 8th of February the Korean People's Revolutionary Army which had fought the marauding  and aggressive Japanese imperialists , was transformed into a standing regular armed force by the great leader President Kim Il Sung .
   The Korean People's Army stands guard over the socialist gains of People's Korea and defends the sovereignty of the DPRK. It is totally different to an army in an imperialist country .
   The KPA is the unique Juche based and Songun based revolutionary armed force of the Korean people. It is an army of the people, an army of the revolution and an army of the working class and Workers' Party of Korea.
 The great leader President Kim Il Sung, an ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander  and gifted military strategist , put forward the line of building the army after the liberation of Korea and developed the Korean People's Revolutionary Army into the Korean People's Army, modern regular armed forces, performing the undying feats in the history of the building of the revolutionary armed forces.
    The KPA, the  regular revolutionary armed force founded by the great leader President Kim Il Sung followed a glorious road. In the 1950s the KPA beat back the U.S. imperialists' invasion to swallow up the DPRK in its cradle and demonstrated the dignity and honour of the DPRK and Korean people during the Fatherland Liberation War.  Throughout  the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s the regular revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK defended the gains of socialism and the indepedence of the  DPRK , inflicting defeats on the imperialists .
                       

Our delegations have  witnessed the incredible steel-like unity and total discipline of the Korean People's Army at the military parades of April 2012, July 2013 , October 2015 ,April 2017 and September 2018.

                                                                 


   Today the  KPA under the command of dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un is defending the independence of People's Korea and decisively contributing to peace and security on the Korean peninsula and Asia-Pacific region. .

Japan Will Ruin Itself: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, January 29 (KCNA) -- Japan is running high fever in the naval intercepting operation against the DPRK.
Japan, who went mean last year, informing the 1718 Committee of the UN Security Council of the DPRK's possibility of transshipment on the sea, is confusing the international community this year again, claiming that there is suspicion that the DPRK has been transferred essential oil goods from an unidentified ship in the open sea.
It is quite absurd as it is an evil-minded act of those who are marginalized by the trend of the regional situation.
Japan is getting increasingly uneasy with dialogues between different sides being conducted centered on the DPRK at present and with the positive development of the regional situation attributable to it.
Japan has so far rushed headlong for the execution of its hostile policy toward the DPRK, while crying out for cooperation in inciting confrontation with the DPRK and in putting pressure on the DPRK. Now that the anti-DPRK camp made a sudden U-turn toward dialogue with the DPRK, Japan is experiencing the feelings of betrayal, loneliness and awkwardness, finding itself at a loss with no idea of how to make its diplomatic gesture.
The warm wind of peace and stability that began to breeze over the Korean peninsula and the region has deprived Japan of even the justifications of "theory of threats from north Korea" which it had used for building political, military and socio-economic foundation for the establishment of a war state.
Much embarrassed by this, the Japanese reactionaries are taking the lead in the naval interception of the DPRK's ships even with the involvement of monitoring devices and personnel from other countries out of their vicious ambition to get rid of unfavorable situation.
Through this, they try to demonstrate their existence in settling the Korean peninsula issue and furthermore chill the efforts of the DPRK for defending peace, turn the situation back to the days of confrontation and thus realize without fail the dirty ambition of becoming a military giant and achieving overseas expansion.
Japan's moves are Don-Quixotic wild act going against the present trend of the times.
Now the neighboring countries and the international community support the DPRK's sincere stand and efforts to spur the development of positive situation on the Korean peninsula and hope that the present process of d├ętente would be further accelerated to contribute to the development of world peace, security and civilization.
At this time, Japan is inciting cooperation for pressure on the DPRK and is working desperately to strain tension. This can not but be a frontal challenge to human desire for peace.
Japan's unbecoming acts of going against the trend of the times will only plunge Japan deeper into abyss.
An Asian media commented that with the growing suspicion of "passing Japan" over the Korean peninsula issue, Abe and others came out for defensive diplomacy only to be cold shouldered for its unreasonable demands and inappropriate acts and words. "Passing Japan" is attributable to the Abe regime's exploitation of the north's nuclear issue for the domestic ultra-right politics. Without the settlement of this, there can never be a way-out.
This is quite just.
Japan must know that it will ruin itself if turns its face away from the trend of the times. -0-

The Myth of the 'Slave Camps"

 Some reactionaries and the liberal 'human rights " lobby rant  about "slave camps " in the DPRK . Let's nail these nonsense of the anti-DPRK trolls once and for all.
There is no such as a "slave camp "in People's Korea and no such thing as "Gulags " (Gulag being a Russian word that has no meaning in Korean ) . Slavery and bonded labour were made illegal in People's Kore after liberation . The original Labour Law of 1946 and the subsequent Socialist Labour Law of 1978 abolished exploitation and guaranteed the independent and creative labour of the DPRK. The employment of people under the age of 16 is strictly prohibited , the working day is limited to 8 hours and 7 hours for heavy work.
The booket " Understanding Korea - Human Rights " states that "The DPRK regards independence of a human being as his or her life and soul, and never tolerates slavery which deprives him or her of his or her independence.
There exist no such acts as human trafficking,  prostitution and forced labour. If such acts are
committed, severe punishment is meted out by law."
As to the idea of "slave camps ", "concentration camps " , "prison camps " etc . I can say that I have visite the DPRK 15 times and never seen a hint of such a thing. Moreover the evidence offered for them is tales from "defectors " or satellite images . In fact the satellite images actually show ordinary towns and cities ,factories , residential areas . The celebrity defector Shin claimed a whole region was the "Camp 14 Total Control Zone " . Camp 14 Total Baloney Zone more like !!! . In fact the area has major road and rail links to Mt Myohyang and the Chinese border running through it . KFA members visiting the DPRK have said that they have seen normal areas where satellite photos show supposed labour camps.
So do not get fooled by the "human rights " gang and their false propaganda .

4. Let us make a proposal for peaceful reunification based on a nationwide agreement and make sincere efforts to realize it!
It is necessary to pool their wisdom and efforts to make a nationwide proposal for reunification in line with the will and demand of the nation on a basis of recognizing ideologies and systems existing in the north and the south and allowing them.
Let all of us further accelerate the nationwide advance for implementing the north-south declarations with the conviction in certain victory and courage and thus glorify this year as a historic one when another radical change is brought about in the development of inter-Korean relations and accomplishment of the cause of national reunification! -0-

Source of Evils Should Be Uprooted: KCNA Commentary



Pyongyang, January 23 (KCNA) -- The gentry of the "Liberal Korea Party" confusing the whole society of south Korea are getting more reckless in their moves with each passing day, stunning the people.
When the south Korean prosecution started an investigation into Ryang Sung Thae, former president of the Supreme Court who is ringleader of judicial scandal, the conservative group of traitors covered the criminal, branding the investigation as an attempt of the government to seize the judicature.
The disgraceful behavior of the gentry of the LKP who patronize the criminal, not content with spawning all sorts of social evils, is a serious challenge to the south Korean people's mindset desirous of justice and democracy.
As known, Ryang Sung Thae is the A-class criminal who had consistently engaged in the fascist dictatorial politics sought by Park Geun Hye and worked hard to help her to stay in power under the mask of judge during the period of the past conservative regime and his criminal records are recorded in the whole society including the political, financial and cultural circles.
The Teachers Union was outlawed, the Unified Progressive Party was disbanded, democratic rights of the people were mercilessly trampled down and righteous struggles for independence, democracy and reunification were ruthlessly cracked down by the rogues who were reduced into running dogs of power.
They deliberately prolonged a trial for the compensation claim by the victims of forced labor drafted by the Japanese imperialists and maneuvered to make a verdict that Japan's war criminal companies which had bled the Koreans are not to blame for the crimes.
A crime of abusing the "law" for protection of the rights and interests of the people as a lethal weapon against them can never be pardoned.
Every sin brings punishment to it. It is too natural that the traitorous rule keeper is sternly punished by the people.
Nevertheless, the gentry of the LKP openly covered and justified the crimes committed by Ryang Sung Thae and thus revealed their true colors as the group of criminals.
In fact, all the crimes committed by Ryang are those under the directive instructions and positive support by the conservatives who took power at that time.
All facts go to prove that the south Korean people can never think about genuine freedom, rights and true life unless they root out the conservative group such as the LKP, the source of evils and group of criminals.
Today the remnants of the conservatives are going busy with enlargement of forces for replacement of the regime while longing for the past when they had been engrossed in the fascist rule, far from drawing a lesson from the merciless impeachment according to the demand of the candlelight demonstrators.
Liquidation of the conservatives and deep-seated evils is the stern demand of history and severe punishment by the people.
The group of traitors is bound to perish. -0-

Report of UK KFA East Midlands Meeting 12.01.2019

                                   



UK KFA held its first ever East Midlands regional meeting in the city of Derby on the 12th of January . Derby a city steeped in railway history and also associated with Rolls Royce . The meeting was better than expected with a lively audience who asked plenty of questions , 
On a humorous note it was the first ever UK KFA meeting to be held with a rabbit present , It is a mystery why the meeting venue had a rabbit but can only be assumed it was brought in doors because of feared cold weather.
 Dr Dermot Hudson UK KFA chair opened the meeting , He pointed out that KFA is not just about one individual or one party but is open to all those who support the DPRK . He said that "Today the DPRK is the most demonised and abused country on earth with lies about the country being produced on an industrial scale. Much misinformation comes from the south Korean puppet propaganda machine which is then recycled by the Western mainstream or if you like bourgeois or imperialist media who in some cases print stories which they know are untrue. Then you have shadowy outfits and think tanks that are closely linked to the CIA and the south Korean National Intelligence Service. One example is NKNews , an internet based news service that is in fact includes on its staff former US and south Korean army officers . The head and founder of of NK News Chad O Carroll who worked for the CIA linked Marshall Fund had previously been writing on the so-called colour revolutions in Libya, Tunisia and other middle eastern countries but was suddenly reinvented as “north Korea expert “ 
Mitchell Wells KFA Scotland spoke about his visit to the DPRK in September 2018 saying that "Of course many other myths and lies about the DPRK were refuted during our stay. There are disabled people in Pyongyang, women do ride bikes, there is more than one tv channel, and people do sing and dance and enjoy themselves. One of the things the Koreans are keen to put across, is their pride in what they are doing. They so often say "we made this with our own efforts" or "everything we do is for us and to raise our standard of living". As I mentioned before, you will no doubt be hearing in detail from others about all the places of interest that we visited, but i will just end on this. As the American journalist Lincoln Steffens said after spending time in the early days of the Soviet Union ""I have seen the future, and it works". 
James Taylor KFA Communications Secretary also spoke about his visit to the DPRK in September saying "It was truly an honour and unforgettable experience to have been in the DPRK for its 70th anniversary celebrations, not something I would ’ve missed for anything. I’m only sad we had to leave so early when other delegations still had a few days left to go. It was interesting to compare my experiences with those of the comedian and travel writer Michael Palin, who had visited earlier in the year and whose Channel 5 documentary was screened just after we got back. I got the impression that, after some scepticism, Palin had come to rather like the DPRK more than he would’ve cared to admit, although his middle class liberal prejudices were never entirely lifted. I too heard music playing in the streets in the morning from the hotel, but it never struck me as mysterious or in some way creepy. Incidentally, watching the documentary, I am convinced Palin stayed in the exact same Koryo hotel room we did!

A lively question and and answer session followed with questions on human rights , religion , popular participation , democracy, political parties in the DPRK , travel to the DPRK , the Juche idea and tourism. 
  Dr Dermot Hudson spoke about the New Year address of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN saying that "  We believe that the Korean people will victoriously implement the tasks put forward in the New Year Address of respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and build a self-reliant socialist people's paradise under the banner of the Juche Idea ."
Suggestions were made about linking KFA to other solidarity campaigns . A small exhibition of books and publications from the DPRK plus KFA materials was held . Refreshments were served . A large amount of literature was sold and donations were made to KFA

KCNA Commentary on Japan's Military Cooperation with Britain, France


Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- In recent days Japan is running highly fevered in their moves for building up military relations with Britain, France and others.
Shortly ago, Prime Minister Abe said in a joint press conference with his British counterpart that the British frigate Montrose would be dispatched to Japan early this year as part of measures for putting pressure on the DPRK. And foreign ministers and defense ministers of France and Japan had talks on the attendance of a French sea-patrol plane, frigate and nuclear carrier Charles de Gaulle in a joint drill with the "Self-Defence Forces" of Japan from April.
The Japanese reactionaries' escalated military cooperation with other countries under the pretext of the "DPRK issue" are the revelation of their wicked intention to worsen the situation on the Korean Peninsula at any cost by inviting other countries in their moves and thus speed up the moves to realize their ambition for reinvasion and revival of militarism.
A fresh climate of peace and stability is being created along with the downfall of the old confrontational structure at the present historic turning point that witnesses the improvement of the touch-and-go situation on the Korean Peninsula.
Japan is ostracized in the current trend of the international situation as it has been displeased to see such development of situation and has worked hard to reverse it. Nevertheless, Japan is scheming to take military actions together with France and Britain to worsen the situation, stunning the international community.
It is not fortuitous that foreign media including AFP ridicule Japan is taking precautions against China and north Korea by soliciting France in the situation that the Trump administration remains doubtful in its will to defend its Asian allies.
Today Japan's neighboring countries and regions need no tension to be caused by military threat against others, but remain quite contrary to Japan's war-thirsty remarks.
Therefore, it is a foolish behavior that the Japanese authorities try to make a progress in materializing their wild ambition for militarization and reinvasion with the backing of someone, while talking about sanctions and pressure, irrespective of the trend of the times.
In particular, the dispatch of warships mulled over by some countries to the waters around the Korean Peninsula under the pretext of implementing the UNSC "sanctions resolutions" comes to be a dangerous military provocation to infringe upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and incite tension and confrontation.
Worse still, they are going to take military actions against the DPRK together with Japan which does not get rid of the disgrace of an enemy state for inflicting untold holocaust upon Asians in the last century and is working hard to produce justification for its militarization by bedeviling the situation on the Korean Peninsula. This is incurring the great wrath of the Korean people.
The stabilized situation on the Korean Peninsula and in the region is never something that came true with ease, and any country desirous of genuine peace is bound to value the current situation.
To propel the development of the positive situation on the Korean peninsula, not to go against it, is the responsibility to be fulfilled by the UNSC member that is on a mission to ensure world peace and security.
Whoever goes against the peaceful trend created on the Korean Peninsula and in the region can never evade the blame for the consequences to be entailed by it. -0

ASSPUK, JISGE , UK KFA and BSCPRKP on the 51st Anniversary of the capture of the USS Pueblo

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

      London 22nd of January Juche 108 (2019)    
  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 the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement on  the 51st  anniversary of the capture of the US imperialist armed spy ship the "USS Pueblo" by the heroic Korean People's Army navy .
    It is now 50 years since the "USS Pueblo "was captured by the navy of the heroic and invincible Korean Peope's Army , inflicting a defeat on US imperialism.
                                                 
                         

  The captured ship is a symbol of victory in the anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle .The "Pueblo " is now on display at the Fatherland Liberation War Museum of the DPRK in Pyongyang . It forms the central part of the display of captured enemy weapons. It is the only US warship to be in the hands of an adversary of the US.  The ship had remained in Wonsan for many years and then in 1998 was taken to the River Taedong in Pyongyang and moored at the site where the USS General Sherman was sunk by Korean patriots led by Kim Ung U the grandfather of the great revolutionary leader President Kim Il Sung . In 2013 it was moved to the reconstructed and expanded Fatherland Liberation War Museum on the River Potong.
  A delegation of of the Juche Idea Study Group of England and  the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK has visited the "Pueblo " four time ,once in 2008 and at the new site in 2013 , October 2015 and April 2017. The "Pueblo " is a graphic and substantial demonstration of US imperialism's crimes against the Korean  people .
 The "Pueblo " was captured 7 miles off Wonsan on the east coast of the DPRK on the 23rd of January 1968 . Its crew were armed and so was the ship ,as it had a machine gun mounted at the stern . A small group of KPA sailors managed to overpower over 80 US personnel and capture them.
   The US imperialists arrogantly demanded that the DPRK hand back both the ship and the crew , threatening to bomb the DPRK. The great leader President Kim Il Sung stood firm saying the DPRK would match all-out war for all-out war and that the only thing the US would get out of it was corpses and death . The modern revisionists,traitors and capitalutionists who are  the    agents of imperialism, had also suggested the DPRK hand back the ship and its crew but the DPRK stood firm and the "USS Pueblo " is still in Pyongyang 50 years after being captured .
 The  "Pueblo " is a living testimony to the bankruptcy of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK.

Rodong Sinmun on Major Contents of Principle of Our State First

Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun says in an article on Tuesday that the miraculous successes made by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in building a prosperous country in the past are the major contents of the principle of our state first.

The article notes that the DPRK is the country of the dignified people, the country of single-minded unity in which the unity of thoughts is realized, the country of miracles which built the self-supporting national economy and military capability for self-defence and the promising country in which the succession is firm.

It goes on:

The DPRK is, indeed, a genuine country of the people in which the position and role of the popular masses as the master of the state and society are being institutionally guaranteed and the idea of believing in the people as in Heaven and the most advantageous popular policies are being applied.

It is the matchless and great country and invincible power in which everything of the state and society serves the people and the popular masses fulfill their responsibility and role as the master.

There is no country but the DPRK the whole society of which has been imbued with the monolithic idea and the single-minded unity between the Party and people realized.

The prospect of the development of the DPRK is very great as it has the powerful self-supporting national economy and military capability for self-defence, and the DPRK has huge influence on the international arena.

The DPRK has given special priority to the issues of succession to the leadership and the revolutionary tradition and directed great efforts to building the youth power. Herein lies the essential secret of the DPRK which remains unfazed in any storms.

It is the great pride and honor of Juche Korea that it perfectly settled the issue of succession, the knotty problem of other countries, theoretically and practically. -0-

Rodong Sinmun on Inevitability of Downfall of Capitalism

Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article says the bourgeois reptile media claim that the capitalist society is the "rich society" and "welfare society" full of material wealth with developed economy, talking about its "eternity".

This is nothing but a sheer sophism to cover up the true color of the unpopular and depraved capitalist society, says the article.

It goes on:

Capitalism is by no means a rich society good to live.

Although it has an abundant material wealth, it does not serve people's sound material life but spoils people both mentally and physically.

A poor mental and cultural life shows another aspect of corruptness of capitalism.

In the capitalist society the corrupt bourgeois life style is rampant so as to benumb sound spirit of people and lead them to ignorance and darkness.

People are seized with uneasiness and horror in the capitalist society because way of life based on the jungle law becomes a social trend and all sorts of social evils including immorality and corruption, fraud and swindle and crimes of violence prevail.

The corruption of capitalism can be clearly found in people's political life.

The capitalist class is clinging to the crafty moves to appease and win over the popular masses in a bid to keep its privileged position, strengthening its reactionary ruling machinery and suppressing the working people's demand for independence and political freedom. This aggravates the split of society.

Herein lies the inevitability of downfall of capitalism.

Capitalism is not so civilized and eternal one just as the Western politicians and their advocators tout.

The downfall of capitalism is inevitable as it has an incurable illness. -0

In an all-round way

In an all-round way

Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK in his New Year Address for 2019 said that inter-Korean cooperation and exchanges should be expanded and developed in an all-round way so that national reconciliation and unity can be consolidated and all the fellow countrymen can practically benefit from improved north-south relations.
For the present, we are willing to resume the Gaeseong Industrial Park and Mt. Geumgang tourism without any precondition and in return for nothing, in consideration of the hard conditions of businesspersons of the south side who had advanced into the Gaeseong Industrial Park and the desire of southern compatriots who are eager to visit the nation's celebrated mountain, he said.
To expand and develop inter-Korean cooperation and exchanges in an all-round way is an important demand to promote and consolidate national rapprochement and unity.
The north and the south could deepen the understanding and trust and join minds and efforts for the realization of goal common to the nation through inter-Korean cooperation and exchanges. In this course the national unity would be promoted.  
It is an essential issue that the Korean nation practically benefits from improved inter-Korean relations.
When north and south join hands firmly and rely on the united strength of the fellow countrymen, no external sanctions and pressure, challenges and trials will be able to hinder us in our efforts to open a broad avenue to national prosperity.
Last year the north and the south took the significant first step towards common prosperity of the nation by promoting cooperation projects in various fields including railways, road, forestry and public health to delight the Korean nation while resolutely overcoming manifold obstacles and difficulties.
The business groups including the Pan-national Council for Reconciliation and Cooperation welcomed Chairman Kim Jong Un’s new year address and clarified their attitude to push ahead inter-Korean cooperation and exchanges.
The north and the south should not pass up the favorable atmosphere of today when all the nationals' interest in and aspiration for reunification are growing unprecedentedly, but strive to expand and develop inter-Korean cooperation and exchanges in an all-round way true to patriotic intention of Chairman Kim Jong Un.

What makes him charmed?





A south Korean online paper Jaju Sibo said that US President Trump lost his heart to Chairman Kim Jong Un of the DPRK State Affairs Commission. It is because of Kim Jong Un’s manly audacity, it continued.

In his course of life, Trump has not met a man such as Chairman Kim Jong Un who has a great pluck.  Maybe he built a relationship of mutual trust called “revolutionary comrade” beyond admiration, rivalry and feeling of respect, perhaps.  

The US has been indiscreet in employing means to strangle Pyongyang, however, Chairman Kim Jong Un remains unfazed. Far from giving a signal for surrender, he becomes stronger and hits the back of the US head.

Trump is correctly appreciating Chairman Kim Jong Un’s inflexible grit to reunify the Korean Peninsula and live in harmony.

No leaders in the world get praised by Trump, but Chairman Kim Jong Un draws praise from him.  

It is right that Chairman Kim Jong Un’s broad-minded pluck, unique and uncommon “letter diplomacy” captivated Trump.

Trump, who raised his voice “fire and fury” and clamored the annihilation of north Korea, fell in love with the Supreme Leader of north Korea. It is true that his love is not fake, it claimed.
