At a time when all the DPRK people are opening a broad avenue to socialist victory, frontally breaking through the severe difficulties, we are marking the 23rd publication anniversary of Chairman Kim Jong Il’s famous work "On Preserving the Juche Character and National Character of the Revolution and Construction."

Published on June 19, 1997, this work is a highly important document that clarified the principles for successfully carrying out the socialist cause in conformity with its independent nature and historical and actual conditions.

It is also a militant banner which illuminated the road to the independent development and prosperity of the country and nation.

To preserve the Juche character and national identity is the fundamental principle to be maintained in accomplishing the cause of socialism.

Clearly illustrated in it are the proud successes and experiences we gained in the struggle to establish the Juche character and national character under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung, concrete tasks to dynamically advance the socialist cause based on them and ways to implement them.

Our-style socialism adherent to the Juche character and national character is an invincible socialism as it is winning victory after victory relying on its own mighty force.

It is a decisive guarantee for the victory of socialist construction to strengthen the driving force of the revolution and enhance its role.

It is a historical lesson that no matter how strong military muscle and economic potentiality a country or a nation may possess, it can never escape failures and setbacks if its driving force of the revolution and political force are not fully prepared.

Our-style socialism adherent to the Juche character and national character is also an independent one which is making progress by itself holding fast to the revolutionary line of independence.

The way of defending the dignity of the country and achieving independent development and prosperity of the nation lies in holding fast to the revolutionary line of independence.

It is a genuine socialism which is thoroughly applying our style to all the domains of social life.

We can preserve the nature of socialism and give full play to its advantages when prioritizing our own things and thoroughly applying our own revolutionary and national way.

The DPRK people will, in the future, too, steadfastly adhere to the principles of Juche and national independence under the leadership of the Party and thus accomplish without fail the historic cause of building a powerful socialist country.
