Thunderous cheers of people in liberated Korea

Image
It has been 74 years since the Pyongyang Mass Rally took place in welcome of President Kim Il Sung's triumphal return.

The welcome mass rally was held at the then Pyongyang public playground on October 14, Juche 34 (1945).

When the President took the platform, enthusiastic cheers rocked the playground. The then newspaper Pyongyang Minbo, under the title "Cheers of 400 000 People Shake Korea, A Lovely Land", wrote that as soon as General Kim Il Sung appeared on the platform, the hero whom the Korean people hold in high respect and have been looking forward to seeing, a storm of enthusiastic cheers arose, and most of the audience were deeply moved to silent tears.

Recalling the day, the President in his reminiscences "With the Century" wrote: If anyone asked me about the happiest moment in my life, I would reply that it was that moment. It was happiness emanating from the pride that I had fought for the people as a son of the people, from the feeling that the pe…

Prosecution reform means liquidation of conservatives

Image
By Min Chol

Recently, there was a massive candlelit rally in south Korea in demand of the liquidation of evil legacies left by conservatives.

Over two million south Korean people turned out in streets with candlelight in their hands to hold a large-scale protest action while chanting such slogans as "Let us reform the prosecution" and "Investigate the Liberal Korea Party".

The Kyunghyang Daily News, Jaju Sibo and other south Korean media outlets devoted broad coverage to the rally, saying that it is an explosion of public anger against the anti-reformist misbehaviour of the prosecution and the LKP which is engrossed in political strife while patronizing the prosecution related to evil legacies.

However, the LKP revealed its true colours as the party of all evils while mounting an open challenge to the public demanding the reform of the prosecution.

It previously criticized the reform as the killing of the prosecution and tyranny and now brand, the participants in …

South Korea disgraced with upkeep of US troops

By Choe Yong Nam

The south Korean and US authorities recently held the first meeting for the 11th Special Measures Agreement and 16th integrated defence consultative council meeting to discuss the scale of the defence cost sharing for the next year, maintenance of joint preparedness and a measure for intensifying anti-DPRK sanctions.

What draws particular attention here is the issue of increasing the defence cost share.

According to mass media, the US is demanding a hike in the defence cost share of south Korea, arguing that the present sum is too small. It provisionally decided to demand $5 billion from south Korea and sent a senior official to Seoul to force it to pay the exorbitant amount.

Every time the Special Measures Agreement has been revised, the US has pressurized the south Korean authorities to push up the upkeep for its forces in south Korea. This time, too, the Americans have exacted a huge increment in the payment regardless of the stagnation of the south Korean economy.

The two countries seek a joint goal of opposing external intervention and pressure and defending their sovereignty. This is a key factor that enables the two countries to boost their …

DPRK demands Japan compensate for sinking of vessel

ANSWER
By DPRK MFA Spokesperson

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on October 12 over the recent incident of sinking our fishing vessel by Japan in the waters of East Sea of Korea:

On October 7, a patrol ship of the Japanese Fisheries Agency committed a gangster act of sinking our fishing vessel which was on a normal navigation in the waters of East Sea of Korea.

It is said that our crew were rescued by the Japanese side, but their safety was subjected to a serious threat.

The Japanese authorities and the media are misleading the public opinion as if the incident was mainly caused by our fishing vessel which had crashed into their patrol ship when it was making a rapid U-turn without responding to its check.

Japan is impatiently trying to justify its deliberate act, and it even acts like a guilty party filing the suit first. Yet, they cannot evade from their responsibil…

LKP trickery with 'wealth of people'

Image
By KCNA

The "Liberal Korea Party" of south Korea is widely publicizing an economic policy called "theory of making people rich".

The theory claims "making all the people rich" by raising per capita national income, annual family income and the proportion of the middle class through a "great economic upturn" by 2030.

Utterly ridiculous is their behavior of putting on airs to give impression that they are well versed in all the economic issues and are concerned about public welfare.

What's more disgusting is that they are openly trumpeting about the theory, saying it will be the strategy for overpowering the ruling party forces in the election of the "National Assembly" due next year though it is contrary to the economic policy of the present "government".

This shows that the "theory" touted by the LKP is none other than a trick to realize the pipedream of coming back to power by alluring the people.

South Korean crooked politicians' farce

By KCNA

Crooked politicians of south Korea persist in provoking the DPRK.

The riff-raff in the south Korean "National Assembly" recently orchestrated a farce of adopting a "resolution for denouncing the north's accelerated development of nukes and missile provocation and preventing its recurrence, asserting that the DPRK's step for bolstering its capabilities for self-defense poses a threat to global peace and stability and goes against the idea of the north-south agreement in the military field.

This is just an intolerable insult to the DPRK and an unpardonable crime that pushes the deadlock in the present north-south relations to a catastrophe.

As already clarified, the DPRK's step for bolstering up its state capabilities for self-defence is an entirely just one for exercising its physical power, which pertains to independence of a sovereign state, and no one is entitled to find fault with it.

The U.S. and the south Korean authorities are wholly to blame f…

History of Korean nation shined by great persons

Image
The Mausoleum of King Tangun, ancestral father of the Korean nation, is located in Munhung-ri of Kangdong County, Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK.

The mausoleum was inaugurated on October 11, Juche 83 (1994), under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who had worked heart and soul to add brilliance to the history of the nation spanning 5 000 years.

Tangun is the founder of Ancient Korea (early 30th century B.C.-108 B.C.), the first state in the history of Korea.

But he had been known as a mythical being and the work for proving his existence met with difficulties due to the foreign aggressors' moves to obliterate Tangun and tamper with history.

The President assigned historians to a task for deepening the study of Tangun and took a step to unearth his tomb in January 1993.

Found out there were remains believed to be Tangun and his wife. And they were confirmed to be more than 5 000-years old through scores of measurements.

Being informed of the…

DPRK denounces US moves against DPRK

STATEMENT
By DPRK FM Spokesperson

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) released the following statement on Thursday:

Despite our warning, six EU countries including Britain, France and Germany, at the instigation of the U.S., held a closed-door meeting of the UNSC Tuesday to release a statement "critical" of our self-defensive measure.

The UNSC which champions fairness and equity picks fault with the just measure belonging to our right to self-defense, while keeping mum about the test-fire of Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile recently conducted by the U.S. This is a serious provocation against the DPRK.

Worse still, the U.S. begged for the DPRK-U.S. working-level negotiations, but it came to the talks with empty hand, thus breaking them off. Yet, it claimed that the result of negotiations was positive and it encouraged its satellites to release a statement critical of the DPRK. We are now look…

South Korean military warmongers act against nation

Commentary in Minju Joson

Confrontational farces against the DPRK have recently been witnessed in south Korea, evidenced by a replay of "operation of blasting railroad bridge", "4th memorial service for heroes of Lake Jangjin battle" and "commemoration of 69th anniversary of recovery of Seoul".

The south Korean military warmongers kicked up a row to invade the north through an open flight of F-35A at a "commemoration of day of ROK Army".

The confrontational acts are another flagrant violation of the spirit of the north-south agreement and an intolerable challenge to the unanimous desire of the entire nation for peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.

Under the eyes of the nation and the world the north and south of Korea made promise concerning an overall stop to the hostile acts against each other.

The whole nation denounces the south Korean authorities for beating the war drum, trumpeting about "peace" in a bid to mislead the fe…

What Japan seeks in justifying armed buildup

Image
Commentary in Minju Joson Japan recently made public the 2019 Defense White Paper.

The white paper was released for the first time after mapping out the "defense program" and "Midterm Defense Capability Buildup Outline" last year.

It includes the development of the capacity of observing the outer space and the rebuilding of the escort warship Izumo into an aircraft carrier for alleged defence of the island.

What should not be overlooked is that the Japanese reactionaries are justifying their moves for bolstering up the military muscle under the pretext of the "threat from the neighboring countries".

It is sophism and that it is Japan's nature to draw water to its mill by faulting others.

The threat is spawned by Japan which is emerging as a dangerous force of aggression seriously threatening the peace and security in the Asia-Pacific region.

Notwithstanding the reality, the Japanese reactionaries are describing their moves for turning Japan into a mi…

The U.S. Department of State reportedly expressed discontent at the drill conducted by south Korea for defending Tok Island in late August, saying that it was not helpful in handling the pending issues.

Infuriated by this, the demonstrators protested against the U.S. intervention, holding a placard urging it to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of south Korea and withdraw its forces from it.

2,000 days, ferry Sewol disaster

South Korean newspaper calls for thorough investigation into ferry disaster

The south Korean internet newspaper Voice of People on Oct. 7 carried an editorial calling for a steady struggle for probing the truth behind the disaster of ferry Sewol.

The editorial said 2 000 days have lapsed since the disaster, deploring that the truth has not yet been probed and those who are accountable for the disaster not been punished.

It noted that bereaved families and citizens declared their action demanding probing of the truth and punishment of those responsible for the disaster.

It urged the "government" and the "National Assembly" to take a special step of setting up an ad-hoc investigation team for probing the truth behind the disaster and the prosecution to investigate the disaster again.

South Korean regime's confrontational farce

By KCNA

The south Korean authorities frequently hold anti-DPRK confrontation farces, seriously rattling the nerves of the DPRK.

The south Korean military group held so-called "commemoration of war victory", "commemoration of 69th anniversary of recovery of Seoul", and "4th memorial service for heroes of Lake Jangjin battle" from September 25, inciting the confrontation atmosphere.

On October 1, they showed F-35A in its flight in a "memorial event" held in the Taegu air force base, making a false show of power.

This treacherous and anti-reunification confrontation act of the imprudent military warmongers of south Korea is an open threat to and a deliberate provocation against the DPRK.

The public at home and abroad are now shocked at the double-dealing acts of the south Korean authorities keen on beating the war drum inside while spouting the deceptive "peace" rhetoric toward the fellow countrymen and the world.

Grave provocation by South Korean snollygosters

Image
By Pak Chol Jun
Rodong Sinmun

Philistines of the south Korean ins and outs at a recent full-dress session of the "national assembly" fabricated a "resolution" describing the DPRK's measures for bolstering up military capability for self-defence as the "acts threatening peace and stability" and "violation" of the north-south agreement in the military field.

This is a grave politically-motivated provocation to shift the responsibility for the situation getting from bad to worse on the Korean peninsula onto the DPRK and stoke the hostility toward the DPRK.

Peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the international community are threatened by the reckless military confrontation acts of the south Korean warmongers in league with foreign forces.

The fabrication of the "resolution" betrays once again the true colors of the south Korean "national assembly" which does not know what to do but does harm to the inter-Korean r…

WPK spares nothing for people's wellbeing

Image
It is the standard of calculation for the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) to spare nothing for the people's wellbeing.

From the first day of its founding, the WPK has set it as the overriding principle of its activities to steadily improve the people's livelihood and devoted its all to their wellbeing.

The history of the WPK run through with the spirit of devoted service to the people on the principle of absolutely prioritizing their interests is the one of the peerlessly great men's love for the people.

President Kim Il Sung visited Sangso-ri of the then Anju County in South Phyongan Province in autumn of Juche 65 (1976). He personally figured out the grain output of the farm and the expense for drawing water of Lake Yonphung into the farm. This work in calculation was like employing a steam hammer to crack a nut, but he took a state measure to draw water of the lake 10-odd kilometers distant from the farm.

In the late 1970s, Chairman Kim Jong Il acquainted himself wit…

Independent line of WPK is banner of great victory

Image
Independence is a cradle and lifeline that gave birth to modern Korea and has advanced it along the road of prosperity.

President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il set independence as the lifeline of the Korean revolution and fundamental foundation of the state building, and had advanced the revolution and construction to victory, resolutely rejecting flunkeyism, dogmatism and the high-handedness and pressure by outside forces.

Under the guidance of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), the Democratic People's Republic of Korea advanced along the road of independence from the start and turned into a dignified and powerful socialist state independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in defence.

As it held fast to the revolutionary line of independence as its lifeline, the DPRK could display its might as the invincible socialist fortress in fierce showdown with the imperialist allied forces when socialism was collapsed in some countries.

Japan's risky moves for territorial expansion

By KCNA

Japan again claimed "dominium over Tok Island" recently in its 2019 Defense White Paper.

Japan has doggedly insisted on its "dominium over Tok Island" though it is just a part of the Korean nation's territory in the light of history, geography and international law. Japan's claim is not something new as it is a revelation of its centuries-long wild ambition for territorial expansion.

What cannot be overlooked, however, is the fact that it was specified for the first time in the said white paper that Japan would let fighters of its air "Self-Defense Force" make immediate sorties in case an armed clash occurs in the sky above Tok Island.

This hints at Japan's project for practical control over the island through the exercise of physical power beyond the far-fetched assertion terming Tok Island a part of its territory. And this shows that the Japanese reactionaries' outrageous moves for seizing Tok Island and reinvading the Korean pen…
