Immutable course of self-reliant prosperity

By Rodong Sinmun

The victorious advance of Juche Korea and its bright future lie in firmly holding the banner of independence and self-support no matter how the conditions and circumstances of the revolutionary struggle change. This is the truth the Korean people have kept deep in mind.

Self-reliance is the bedrock of the existence of Korean-style socialism, the motive power of its advance and development and the eternal lifeline essential to the destiny of the Korean revolution.

No one can help us and wants us being well-off. Now it is the height of folly to expect other's help.

Ceaseless difficulties face us and we suffer a lot of shortages. But they can never be stumbling block to our advance.

We have capacities and foundation for self-reliant development provided by our strenuous efforts for decades. We can overcome the present difficulties and open an avenue of prosperity with our own efforts, if we make the good use of our production potential and economic foundation.

Let us all the people vigorously advance toward a new victory of socialist construction along the immutable course of self-reliant prosperity, set forth by the Workers' Party of Korea.
