President Kim Il Sung, founder of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
The Democratic People¡¯s Republic of Korea (DPRK) was founded on September 9, 1948, sixty-four years ago.
The founding of the DPRK was an event of historic significance as it ushered in a road of building a socialist state of unique style centered on the masses of the people in Korea. Since its founding, the Korean people have eliminated centuries-old backwardness and penury and built a powerful socialist state independent, self-sufficient and self-reliant in defense.
Guided only by the Juche idea authored President Kim Il Sung and formulated by Chairman Kim Jong Il in a comprehensive way, it has thoroughly applied it to all state activities. In this country all the people have been firmly armed with the Juche idea and the whole society has been modeled on one ideology.
It is administering an independent politics which solves all the problems in line with the Juche idea, giving the first consideration to the revolution of its own country and the interests of its own people, and relying on its own efforts as required by its actual situation.
In the closing years of the last century when socialism collapsed one after another in the former Soviet Union and other countries, the DPRK invariably held fast to the banner of socialism. This fact brought home to the international community how firmly the DPRK champions independence. The present reality, in which it steers the drive to make the world independent, displaying its sovereignty and dignity in confrontation with the allied imperialist forces single-handed, also strikes the world community that this country, small as it is, is a politico-ideological power to be reckoned with.
The DPRK is a military power no one dares provoke. It has the Korean People¡¯s Army displaying its might as an invincible army and established a reliable system of all-people, nationwide defense with the KPA as its core, an integral whole of the army and the people which can never be broken even by means of nukes, and a powerful national defense industry capable of manufacturing any state-of the-art weaponry as it wishes.
The DPRK, for its national defense, has consistently pursued the lines of turning the entire army into an army of cadres, and modernizing the whole army, arming all the people and fortifying the whole world.
In the closing years of the last century socialism collapsed in some countries all at once, and the allied imperialist forces directed the spearhead of their anti-socialist offensive to the DPRK. Even under such grave situation the DPRK held higher the banner of Songun and has carried out the line of economic construction in the Songun era developing the defense industry on a preferential basis while simultaneously developing the light industry and agriculture, and thus provided itself with the most reliable war deterrent.
In recent, the US and south Korean belligerent force staged military maneuvers Ulchi Freedom Guardian against north Korea with the participation of its followers to destabilize peace and security of the Korean Peninsula.
If another war breaks out on this land due to the US and the south Korean puppet forces¡¯ intolerable actions, though the DPRK does not want it, the war will only bring a shameless doom to them and the Korean nation will greet a new bright day of national reunification.
The DPRK will demonstrate its mightiness of the power of Mt. Paektu throughout the world in the general offensive towards a final victory under the leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
