"We should be prepared for both words and actions. However fair-minded and just we are, we may become a bargaining chip for the strong and our precious history inherited with blood will loose its shine in a moment if we are weak".KIM JONG UN

                            


                             

Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, again provided field guidance to the tactical rocket firing drill of the units of the KPA Strategic Force in the western sector of the front.
The drill was conducted as a combination of a sudden movement and firepower strike to assess and inspect the actual combat capabilities of the above-said units.
He learned in detail about the firing plan worked out by the Staff of the Strategic Force, the designated flight orbit, the blockade of the targeted waters, etc. before giving an order to fire tactical rockets.

The drill once again fully demonstrated the tactical rockets' high capability of hitting the targets and combat capability. This helped accurately define the order of combat actions and firepower missions of the strike units of the Strategic Force in the western sector of the front in case of emergency and round off the firing methods according to different enemy targets.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the drill was successfully staged in combination with rapid movement as required by a modern warfare.
He gave important instructions for rounding off the combat preparations of the Strategic Force and applying the Juche-oriented rocket combat methods.
He said: "We should be prepared for both words and actions. However fair-minded and just we are, we may become a bargaining chip for the strong and our precious history inherited with blood will loose its shine in a moment if we are weak".
He expressed great expectation and conviction that the units of the Strategic Force would as ever further step up the combat readiness of rockets and always keep themselves ready to promptly fire them by undergoing drills under the simulated conditions of an actual battle and thus cope with the reckless confrontation hysteria of the enemies to stifle the DPRK by force at any cost with powerful military deterrent.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Pak Jong Chon, Yun Tong Hyon and Hong Yong Chil.

KCNA Commentary Blasts U.S. Wrong Policy on Anti-Personnel Mines

 Pyongyang, July 9 (KCNA) -- The U.S. biased policy on the production and possession of anti-personnel mines was disclosed during the recent conference to review the implementation of the convention on the prohibition of anti-personnel mines (Ottawa Treaty) held in Mozambique.
    A spokesperson for the National Security Council of the White House in a statement clarified that the U.S. government would no longer produce anti-personnel mines and purchase them but, timed to coincide with this, a spokesperson for the U.S. State Department blustered the announcement of a halt to using those mines would not affect the defense of the Korean peninsula.
    This outpouring cannot but be called into question as it is revelation of the U.S. sinister scenario to keep south Korea under its occupation as its bridgehead for carrying out its strategy for dominating Asia-Pacific.
    The convention, which calls for the comprehensive prohibition of the production and use of anti-personnel mines, took effect on March 1, 1999 but the Korean peninsula is left outside the convention though its population is threatened with a great number of mines.
    The U.S. stockpiled 70 percent of its anti-personnel mines in south Korea and the south Korean puppet army possesses at least two million non-self-blasting mines. The number of the mines laid there is estimated to be a million.
    The U.S., the world's largest anti-personnel mine exporter, declared it was not willing to clear the peninsula of the mines which are meant to protect the lives of U.S. soldiers the moment a war breaks out there, making the peninsula an exception under the pretext of the non-existent "threat" from the DPRK.
    It was reported that more than one hundred million anti-personnel mines were laid all over the world. As many as 26 000 people fall victim to those mines every year. 83 percent of them are said to be civilians. Thrown into a tight corner by the international community's criticism, the U.S. declared that it would prohibit the use of all mines till 2010. But it said it would except the peninsula under the south Korea-U.S. "mutual defense treaty".
    The number of the victims of those mines is on the steady increase in south Korea as it is outside the convention.
    Huge U.S. forces are deployed in south Korea, Japan and other parts of Asia-Pacific. U.S. strategic nuclear striking means including nukes are massed there, and taskforce units are deployed there.
    The U.S. aggressor forces in south Korea have recently been reinforced sharply.
    The number of the U.S. forces in south Korea has increased as many as 11 000 as compared with September 2009, according to the "2012 report on the military base structure" released by the U.S. Defense Department.
    Such ultra-modern military hardware as new type heavy tanks M1-A2 Abrams, MRAPs and F-16s were additionally deployed in the U.S. forces in south Korea.
    Such massive reinforcement of the U.S. forces in south Korea further escalates the tensions in the region and sparks the arms race and increases the danger of a war.
    If peace is to settle on the peninsula, the U.S. must pull out of south Korea at once, taking with it all its military personnel and destructive military hardware. -0-

Solution to the Succession Issue

One of the most important feats of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG was to solve the issue of the succession and continuing the revolution from generation to generation. No socialist country had solved this question before. Leaders like Stalin, Mao , Hoxha and Tito were all outstanding leaders but none of them solved the succession issue and worse still in some cases those who succeeded the leader were traitors and renegades who attacked and slandered the preceding leader and undid their work (a prime example of this is Khruschov who defamed and slandered Stalin ). In the DPRK great generalissimo KIM JONG IL carried forward the revolutionary cause of Juche and now dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN follows in the footsteps of the great
leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL.

ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA support DPRK Government statement on Reunification

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK

London 7th of July Juche 103(2014)
The ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA today issued a joint statement in support of the statement of the government of the Democratic People.s Republic for ending
confrontation and moving towards peaceful reunification;
                It is now 20 years since the great leader President KIM IL SUNG signed the historic document for Korean national reunification. However after 20 years reunification has not come about due to the interference and intervention of the US imperialists and other outside forces such as the Japanese militarists and some others , also the confrontational stance of successive south Korean puppet regimes and their dependence on outside forces has obstructed the road to reunification. Now the situation on the Korean peninsula has become extremely tense , so tense that the smallest incident could spark off a military conflagration with disastrous results.
                                  The government of the DPRK sensing the acute nature of the situation and availing itself of the 20th anniversary of the signature of eternal president KIM IL SUNG on the reunification has  taken this bold and decisive measure to bring about a lasting peace and improve inter-Korean relations .
 The south Korean authorities must implement the accords that were reached on June 15 2000 and October 4 2007 . They must stop depending on outsiders and they must halt all provocative war exercises.

What the statement of the DPRK government shows is  that its the DPRK under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN that is continually putting forward new initiatives for peaceful reunification all the time. The south Korean authorities must respond to them positively and earnestly for peace to come about.

DFRK Memorandum on Feats of Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il for Korea's Reunification


    Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK) made public a memorandum Sunday to convey down through generations the great exploits performed by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, the peerless great men of Mt. Paektu, before the nation for the sacred cause of national reunification, 20 years since the President left his signature "Kim Il Sung July 7, 1994" in a historic document related to Korea's reunification.
    The President wisely led the nationwide struggle to put an end to the permanent division of the country and realize the independence and complete sovereignty of the country, the memorandum said, and went on:
    In several speeches including the New Year address for Juche 37 (1948) the President aroused all the people in the north and the south to the nationwide struggle to oppose the ruinous "separate election" of the U.S. imperialists and their followers.
    After finding the way for preventing the national division in the unity of all patriotic forces in the north and the south, he took practical measures one after another to this end.
    On his initiative, there took place in a big way the historic north-south joint conference in Pyongyang in April 1948 amid great interest and expectation of all Koreans.
    At the April joint conference he made a scientific analysis of the political situation that prevailed in the country and clarified a signal measure for waging a nationwide struggle to build a reunified independent and sovereign state by pooling all efforts and to build a unified government on the principle of democracy.
    Under his energetic leadership, there took place the general election for the establishment of a unified government across the north and the south, and the founding of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea was proclaimed all over the world on September 9, 1948.
    After founding the DPRK, he energetically led the struggle to form the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea comprising all patriotic political parties and social organizations in the north and the south.
    There took place in Pyongyang in June 1949 a meeting for forming the front with the attendance of representatives of 71 political parties and social organizations in the presence of the President.
    He directed big efforts into arousing all the Koreans to the struggle for foiling the moves to provoke a new war on the part of the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces and for realizing the reunification of the country in a peaceful way under the condition that the DPRK was founded and the front comprising patriotic forces from all walks of life in the north and the south of Korea was formed.
    He provided wise guidance over the struggle to stir up the atmosphere for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country in a nationwide scale.
    He clarified the policies for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country in a report to the meeting held in 1955 for celebrating the 10th anniversary of the liberation of Korea (August 15), a report to the 3rd Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea convened in April 1956 and other works.
    Considering it as an important issue in realizing the peaceful reunification of the country to bring the living of the south Koreans to normal, he made sure that assistance was rendered to them with warm compatriotic feelings.
    He also saw to it that the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea was formed in May 1961, thus providing a powerful driving force for realizing the independent and peaceful reunification of Korea.
    At the 4th Congress of the WPK in September 1961, he stressed the need for the Korean people to reunify the country independently and peacefully.
    Attaching great significance to the work of getting the force for national reunification ready, he energetically guided the struggle for its realization.
    At the 8th Plenary Meeting of the 4th Central Committee of the WPK in February 1964, he advanced the outstanding policy on strengthening in every way the three forces for national reunification-- the revolutionary forces in the northern half of Korea, the revolutionary forces in south Korea and the international revolutionary forces.
    When meeting a representative from the south side who came over to Pyongyang to take part in the north-south high-level political talks on May 3, 1972, he expounded the three principles of national reunification.
    The north-south joint statement was made public simultaneously in Pyongyang and Seoul on July 4, 1972 amid the great interest of the Korean nation and the attention of the world.
    He also wisely led the struggle to put into practice the July 4 joint statement and thus prevent the permanent division of the nation and put the national reunification movement on a new stage.
    At the historic 6th Congress of the WPK in October 1980, he advanced the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo and wisely led the struggle for putting it into practice, thereby opening up a wide avenue for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country.
    When the north-south relations faced a crisis due to the U.S. imperialists' vicious racket for nuclear threats, the President turned the adversities into favorable conditions with his matchless grit, thus making sure that the national reunification movement steadily advanced along the road of victory.
    At the 5th Session of the 9th Supreme People's Assembly in April 1993, he declared before the world "10-Point Programme of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country", thus opening up a new chapter for the great national unity.
    On July 7, 1994, he, looking far into the national reunification, left his last signature reading "Kim Il Sung July 7, 1994" on a historic document, reflecting the minds of all the Koreans. This was the last autograph he left in his life.
    The memorandum said that leader Kim Jong Il worked heart and soul to glorify for all generations to come the undying feats performed by the President for national reunification.
    The monument inscribed with the President's signature was successfully built in Panmunjom under the leadership of Kim Jong Il to convey long the President's leadership feats for reunification.
    Kim Jong Il made public the famous work "Let Us Carry Out the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung's Instructions for National Reunification" on August 4, 1997, thus making a comprehensive compilation of the national reunification feats performed by the President and formulating the three principles of national reunification, the 10-point programme of the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo as the three charters for national reunification.
    Kim Jong Il ushered in the June 15 era of independent reunification. This shines as a distinguished exploit he performed before the country and the nation.
    There took place the significant meeting of the top leaders of the north and the south for the first time in the 55 years of national division in Pyongyang in June 2000 and a historic June 15 North-South Joint Declaration was adopted and made public to the world.
    He made sure that the historic "Declaration for Development of North-South Relations and Peace and Prosperity" was adopted on October 4, 2007, to the great excitement of all the Koreans and the world.
    The memorandum said that the Korean nation's cause of reunification is given a steady continuity today under the outstanding and tested leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
    "Let Us Brilliantly Accomplish the Revolutionary Cause of Juche, Holding Kim Jong Il in High Esteem as the Eternal General Secretary of Our Party", "Let Us Add Eternal Brilliance to Comrade Kim Jong Il's Great Idea and Achievements of the Songun Revolution" and other works authored by the Marshal reflect his iron faith and will to achieve the historic cause of national reunification without fail true to the noble intentions of the peerless great men of Mt. Paektu.
    The Marshal set forth from a fresh angle the line on simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force to bolster up the capabilities for self-defence with the nuclear force as a pivot which Kim Jong Il provided with his lifelong dedication, thus laying a firm foundation for the independent and peaceful reunification of the country by strictly rejecting the outsiders' domination and interference.
    His speech at the military parade for celebrating the centenary of birth of the President in April 2012 has become an inspiring banner that instilled great hope and optimism about the future of a reunified country into the hearts of all Koreans.
    The special proposal recently sent by the National Defence Commission of the DPRK to the south Korean authorities has aroused big support and sympathy of the public inside and outside as it reflected the desire and wish of all the Koreans to improve the north-south relations that were pushed to a catastrophe, put an end to the state of confrontation and realize at an early date the national reunification, the cherished desire of the nation.
    The memorandum called on all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad to wage a courageous nationwide struggle to carry through the instructions for national reunification of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Un. -0-
