Rodong Sinmun on Independence, Self-Sustenance and Self-Defence
The great victories and successes made by the Korean people in their vigorous and arduous struggle for the prosperity of the country and nation are the precious outcome of the revolutionary line of independence, self-sustenance and self-defence in the true sense of the word.
The sacred history of the Korean revolution is the one of great victory of the idea of independence, self-sustenance and self-defence.
President Kim Il Sung illuminated the path of the Korean revolution under the uplifted banner of Juche in the first days of his revolutionary struggle and firmly maintained the principle of independence, self-sustenance and self-defence during the whole period of his revolutionary leadership. He thus led the difficult and complicated revolutionary struggle and construction of several stages to victory.
It was Chairman Kim Jong Il who ushered in the new era of defence of socialism and national prosperity by invariably holding fast to and thoroughly implementing the line of independence, self-sustenance and self-defence exactly the way Kim Il Sung did true to his teachings.
Our people learned to live on their own, deal with enemies and difficulties and defend their dignity and rights while passing high and steep peaks of the revolution under the guidance of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il which has brought them all the glory. For them there is no other option but to keep to the path of independence, self-sustenance and self-defence, which is a truth, law and science. This is the firm and immutable faith of our people, the descendants of Kim Il Sung and soldiers and disciples of Kim Jong Il.
A guarantee of the eternal victory and prosperity of the Korean revolution lies in keeping to this path to the end, faithfully upholding the guidance of the ever-victorious Workers' Party of Korea.
