JUCHE 103(2014)

This Plenary Meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, which has been convened at an important, historic time when our Party and revolution are marking a turning point in their development, has been held successfully amid the high political enthusiasm of all the participants.
The Plenary Meeting discussed and decided on the important issue of simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up our nuclear forces as required by the prevailing situation and the developing revolution.
Along with this, the meeting discussed the matter of personnel affairs to be submitted to the Supreme People's Assembly for deliberation and the issue of recalling and electing officials of the central leadership body of the Party.
This Plenary Meeting has established a new, historic milestone in safeguarding and adding lustre to the undying exploits the great President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il performed in building a nuclear power and in stepping up the building of a thriving socialist country.
In the belief that the meeting has conducted thorough and satisfactory discussions on the agenda items, I would like to stress some important problems in carrying out the Party's strategic line of simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up our nuclear forces.
First of all, we should have a correct understanding of the Party's intention in putting forward this strategic line.
Our Party's line is not a temporary countermeasure adopted to cope with the rapidly-changing situation, but a strategic line we should hold fast to permanently in view of the supreme interests of our revolution. It is also the absolutely right line that can ensure that our people enjoy all the benefits of nuclear power and socialism.
In advancing this line the Party's intention is to make our possession of a self-defensive nuclear capability permanent against the reckless nuclear threat and aggressive moves by the imperialists and their vassal forces and, on the basis of this, achieve a decisive victory in building an economic giant.
All officials, Party members and other working people should be firmly convinced of the justness of our Party's line and turn out as one in the effort to implement it, full of confidence in victory.
By concentrating all our efforts, we must bring about a decisive turn in building an economic giant. The enemy are afraid of our satellite and nuclear weapons; what they fear even more is our acceleration of building an economic giant and improving the people's standard of living to such a level that the people shout "Long live the Workers' Party!" from the bottom of their hearts.
Now that our country has become a fully-fledged nuclear state, favourable conditions have been created for us to concentrate funds and labour on the campaign for economic construction and improving the people's standard of living by relying on our powerful war deterrent.
In the effort to build an economic giant, we must gear all our work to making maximum and effective use of the foundations of the self-supporting economy laid by the Generalissimos so as to normalize production at a high level and fully satisfy the material and cultural needs of the people.
Officials, Party members and other working people must have firm confidence in victory and extraordinary determination in the face of the manifold hardships and trials, and wage a bold offensive, a decisive nationwide campaign, thus working miracles and innovations in all sectors of the national economy.
Ceaselessly strengthening our self-defence capabilities with the nuclear forces as the backbone is a sure guarantee for defending the rights of our nation to independence and existence and for achieving national prosperity.
So long as the imperialists persist with nuclear blackmail and threat of aggression, we can never weaken our nuclear armaments and must continue to develop the Juche-based atomic energy industry even as one generation is replaced by another and whatever the change in the situation.
Although our nuclear power is being further strengthened, the service personnel and other people should not rest on their laurels, but further prepare themselves politically and ideologically, and when the day of the life-and-death battle arrives, they must win final victory in the anti-US showdown on the strength of the great unity among them.
By enhancing their function s and role, Party organizations must dynamically enlist their members and other working people in implementing the Party's line of simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up our nuclear forces.
The main spirit of the current Plenary Meeting of the Central Committee of the Party is that we must win final victory in the anti-US showdown and in building a thriving socialist country through resolute attack.
Party organizations must concentrate Party work on implementing the Party's line of simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up our nuclear forces and instil in their members and other working people the main spirit of this Plenary Meeting.
In this way, they can encourage all service personnel and other people to turn out as one and proudly take part in the anti-US showdown and build an economic giant by our own efforts before the eyes of the world.
Party organizations must train all their members to be staunch advocates of the Party's policies and enthusiastic fighters who give their all to implementing the Party's lines and policies.
However severe the situation may be and whatever difficulties we may encounter, we are afraid of nothing, and there is no fortress that we cannot conquer so long as we have the single-hearted unity of the army and the people rallied firmly around the Party and the absolutely correct line of our Party on simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up our nuclear forces.
The world will clearly see how we smash the anti-DPRK schemes of the imperialists and their followers and build a thriving socialist country on this land.

The Party Central Committee firmly believes that all officials, Party members and other working people will demonstrate to the whole world once again the dignity and mettle of Songun Korea by upholding and striving hard to implement the Party's line of simultaneously conducting economic construction and building up our nuclear forces. 

Kim Jong Un Guides Strategic Ballistic Rocket Launching Drill of KPA Strategic Force

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, guided an intermediate-and-long range strategic ballistic rocket launching drill of the KPA Strategic Force on the spot.
The drill was observed by senior officials of the Central Committee of the WPK including Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Jong Sik, Jo Yong Won and Yu Jin, and officials in the field of defence scientific research including Jang Chang Ha and Jon Il Ho.
Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un was greeted by commanding officers of the KPA Strategic Force including its General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the KPA Strategic Force.
Involved in the drill were Hwasong artillery units of the KPA Strategic Force tasked with striking the bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces located in the Pacific operational theatre in contingency and intermediate-and-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.
As known to the world, the intermediate-and-long range strategic ballistic rocket launching drill of the KPA Strategic Force was conducted as a part of the muscle-flexing to counter the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces finally kicked off in disregard of the DPRK's meaningful and crucial warning.
The drill was carried out through the combination of sudden manoeuvres and strike in order to estimate and examine the posture of the KPA Strategic Force for prompt counteraction in contingency on the Korean peninsula and to confirm the actual war operation capacity of the intermediate-and-long range strategic ballistic rocket newly equipped by it.
The Hwasong artillery personnel, who were to conduct the launching drill for the first time in the capital city of the DPRK by order of Kim Jong Un, were all filled with strong militant enthusiasm.
Kim Jong Un arrived at the launching ground early at dawn and watched the artillerymen promptly moving and deploying the Hwasong-12 rocket launcher, praising them for their smart and accurate movement.
He learned in detail about the launch plan, preset flight track and target waters and issued an order to launch the rocket.
The fired ballistic rocket reflecting the dignity and might of the Juche-based nuclear power crossed the sky above Oshima peninsula of Hokkaido and Cape Erimo of Japan along the preset flight track and accurately hit the preset target waters in northern Pacific.
The drill had no impact on the security of the neighbouring countries.
In the drill the rocket operational capacity of the Hwasong artillery units of the KPA Strategic Force for an actual war and the combat efficiency of the intermediate-and-long range strategic ballistic rocket it is newly equipped with were all proved perfect.
Kim Jong Un expressed great satisfaction over the successful launching.
Praising the Hwasong artillerymen of the Strategic Force for being well versed in the new ultra-modern rocket system and properly operating it, he said the drill would offer them an opportunity for gaining a good experience in their rocket operation for an actual war.
Noting that the current ballistic rocket launching drill like a real war is the first step of the military operation of the KPA in the Pacific and a meaningful prelude to containing Guam, advanced base of invasion, he said that it is necessary to positively push forward the work for putting the strategic force on a modern basis by conducting more ballistic rocket launching drills with the Pacific as a target in the future.
Sternly saying that the U.S. answered the DPRK's warning that it will closely watch the U.S. behaviour with the bellicose war exercises for aggression, he added that the drill conducted by the Strategic Force is a curtain-raiser of its resolute countermeasures against the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises being conducted by the U.S. and its stooges.
Noting that it is a lesson the DPRK drew this time again that it should show action, not talk, to the U.S. imprudently denying the DPRK's initiative measure for easing the extreme tension, he stressed that the DPRK will continue to watch the U.S. demeanours as was already declared and decide its future action according to them.
He expressed great belief and conviction that the officers and men of the Strategic Force will further strengthen the combat preparations of Hwasong artillery pieces as required by the grim situation, be fully ready to go into action for decisive battle so as to launch powerful ballistic rockets anytime and thus check military racket of the U.S. imperialists and their followers and firmly guarantee the security of the country and the happiness of the people.

Officers and men of the KPA Strategic Force extended the warmest thanks to Kim Jong Un, peerless patriot and hero of the nation, who gave vent to the long-pent grudge of the Korean people by mapping out a bold plan to make the cruel Japanese islanders insensible on Aug. 29 when the disgraceful "Korea-Japan Annexation Treaty" was proclaimed 107 years ago and approving ballistic rocket launching in the capital region, and pledged that once the Party Central Committee issues an order, they will fulfil their sacred mission and duty as the reliable nuclear force of the WPK in the van of the final sacred war which will win victory in the standoff with the imperialists and the U.S.

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the Chemical Material Institute of the Academy of Defense Science.
Shaking hands of officials who came out to greet him, respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un said that he came to learn about the situation of the institute and help its work. He noted that in recent years the institute has a lot of jobs in a patriotic drive for breaking through the cutting edge, whether they are known or not, true to the Workers' Party of Korea's policy of attaching importance to the defense science and technology and policy of the munitions industry.
After looking round the newly-built room for the education in the revolutionary history and exhibition hall of scientific and technological achievements, he learned about the processes for manufacturing ICBM warhead tip and solid-fuel rocket engine.
Acquainting himself with the processes for preform weaving by carbon fiber, chemical deposition, high pressure liquid deposition and final treatment, he learned about in detail the density of preform, deposition temperature, vacuum degree and deposition time in the chemical deposition process, deposition temperature, pressure, working medium and deposition frequency in the high pressure liquid deposition process and technological specifications in the final treatment process.
He then made a field survey of the process for manufacturing solid-fuel rocket engine and specified tasks and ways for normalizing the production at a higher level.
He set forth important tasks facing the institute.
He instructed the institute to produce more solid-fuel rocket engines and rocket warhead tips by further expanding engine production process and the production capacity of rocket warhead tips and engine jets by carbon/carbon compound material.
Highly appreciating that it is the pride of our Party to have such unassuming heroes, unit of patriotic scientists as the officials of this institute who have devoted themselves to carrying out the Party's policy of defense science, keeping in mind the pure single mind of loyalty to the Party, whether they are appreciated or not, and gave special thanks and special bonus to them in the name of the Party Central Committee.
He had a photo session with the scientists, technicians and workers of the Chemical Material Institute of the Academy of Defense Science.

Accompanying him were Jo Yong Won and Kim Jong Sik, vice department directors of the C.C., the Workers' Party of Korea.

Spokesman for DPRK Foreign Ministry Flails UN Secretary General for Misleading Public Opinion

A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on Saturday as regards the fact that the secretary general of the United Nations claimed as if the cause of escalated tension on the Korean peninsula lies with the DPRK:
Recently, the UN secretary general, at a press conference on the issue of the Korean peninsula, made an absurd remark that the aggravation of tension on the peninsula was caused by the “nuclear and missile development” of the DPRK.
His remark is no more than a revelation of his ignorance on the essence of the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula.
To make it clear, the root cause of the nuclear issue and the vicious cycle of aggravation of situation on the Korean peninsula is the U.S. hostile policy and its nuclear threats against the DPRK.
It is ridiculous for the UN secretary general to talk about taking a fair stand in resolving the issue of the Korean peninsula while he cannot say a word to the U.S. which is actually driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the extreme pitch.
It is none other than the U.S that caused all the trouble by deploying nuclear strategic assets on the Korean peninsula and, hence, in order to defuse the tension and prevent reckless military clash in and around the peninsula, the U.S. should first make the right decision and substantiate it through action.
The DPRK will, under no circumstances, flinch an inch from the road of bolstering up the nuclear force, the road chosen by itself, unless the nuclear threat of the U.S. and its hostile policy toward the DPRK are thoroughly eradicated.
FM Spokesman Denounces U.S. State Department’s “2016 International Religious Freedom Report”
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Thursday as regards the fact that the U.S. State Department faulted the DPRK in its “2016 International Religious Freedom Report”:
In the report on August 15 the U.S. State Department slandered the DPRK again.
The rhetoric about “religious freedom” touted by the U.S. is a means for creating pretexts for aggression and interference in sovereign states and for this it is denounced and rejected by many countries around the world.
The report which found fault with the DPRK does not deserve even a passing note as it is a desperate effort of those driven into a tight corner in the political and military stand-off with the DPRK.
What can never be tolerated is that the report slandered the Juche idea, the eternal guiding idea of the Workers’ Party of Korea, and the socialist system, the lifeline of the Korean people.
The reality in which the DPRK is enjoying the new improvement of the overall state might and strategic position despite the unprecedented sanctions and pressure is a demonstration of the validity and vitality of the great Juche idea and Korean-style socialist system.
The U.S. provocative acts coming from all directions even over the religious issue of the DPRK at a time when the confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S. has been strained to the extremes will incur a due price.

The U.S. had better immediately stop arrogant provocative acts and unilateral pressure on the DPRK but pay heed to the warning that it should no longer provoke the DPRK.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hits U.S. Vice-President’s Reckless Action

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on Saturday over the fact that the vice-president of the U.S. requested several countries in Latin America to sever diplomatic relations with the DPRK:
Recently, the vice-president of the U.S., during his junket to Chile, requested Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Peru to sever diplomatic relations with the DPRK.
This was not the first time for the U.S. to urge the countries which have friendly and cooperative relations with the DPRK to sever the diplomatic and economic relations with it.
The U.S. is exerting pressure on many countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe to break off all relations with the DPRK.
This high-handed measure only reveals the rabid selfishness and arrogance of the U.S. that intends to sacrifice the entire globe for its own interests, and shows that its hostile policy toward the DPRK has reached extremes.
The U.S. pressure to sever the relations constitutes outrageous interference in the internal affairs of independent sovereign states and an open challenge to international law and order that invite condemnation and rejection.
If the U.S. malicious campaign of sanctions and pressure against the DPRK is ignored and permitted, all other countries are bound to fall victim to its interference in their internal affairs.
The DPRK will continue to further strengthen and develop the friendly and cooperative relations with countries around the world on the principles of independence, peace and friendship.

No matter who may say what, the DPRK remains committed to its righteous and responsible efforts to frustrate the unjust and illegal sanctions and pressure campaign, defend the country’s dignity and strategic status and realize genuine international justice.  

Spokesman for DPRK Foreign Ministry Blames Australia for Joining U.S. in Aggravating Situation

A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on August 19 as regards the fact that the Australian government is joining the U.S. in aggravating the situation on the Korean peninsula and the region:
At a local radio interview on August 11, the Australian prime minister made reckless remarks that the allies including Australia were together with the U.S. and that ANZUS stood for the mutual defense between the U.S and Australia, should either one of them come under attack, and Australia would back the U.S. in time of emergency.
Meanwhile, the defense minister and the military brass hat of Australia officially announced that the Australian troops would participate in “Ulji Freedom Guardian” joint military exercises.
Trump faced a hail of criticism from numerous political and social figures of the U.S. including the Congress for revealing his war hysteria by making belligerent remarks such as “fire and fury”, and the countries which are supposedly the U.S allies are trying to avoid getting involved in the aggressive maneuvers of the U.S.
Not long after the Australian prime minister had stated that they would join in the aggressive moves of the U.S., even referring to ANZUS which exists in name only, the Australian military announced that they would dispatch their troops to the aggressive nuclear exercises of the U.S. This is a suicidal act of inviting disaster as it is an illustration of political immaturity unaware of the seriousness of the current situation.
Great irony is that the Australian prime minister, who had once condemned the military option for confrontation of Trump that it will have destructive consequences, made U turn in his stand at the admonition of the U.S, taking no account of Australia’s own interests.
Australia followed the U.S. to the Korean War, the Vietnamese War and the “war on terrorism”, but heavy loss of lives and assets were all that it got in return.
The Australian government had better devote time and energy to maintaining peace of its own country, instead of forgetting the lessons learned in the past and joining the U.S. in the moves for nuclear war.

Countries like Australia that join the military adventure against the DPRK, blindly following the U.S., will never avoid the counter-measures of justice by the DPRK. 


Talk to the WPK Organ Rodong Sinmun and
the KPA Organ Joson Inmingun to Mark
the Day of Songun
August 25, Juche 102 (2013)

With deep respect for the great Comrade Kim Jong Il and firm confidence in the victory of the revolution, our service personnel and people are greeting the 53rd anniversary of the start of his leadership of the Songun revolution.
The Day of Songun, when General Kim Jong Il started his leadership of the Songun revolution, is, together with the day of the founding of the KPA (Korean People's Army), a historic day when an important milestone was established in the history of building up our revolutionary armed forces and the history of our country.
Thanks to this significant day, a historic turn could be brought about in developing our revolutionary armed forces and implementing the cause of the Juche revolution, and the history and traditions of our sacred and victorious Songun revolution which had been pioneered and developed by force of arms could be carried forward.
Songun is a proud tradition of the Korean revolution which was pioneered by Comrade Kim Il Sung and led by him and Comrade Kim Jong Il, and also a banner of victory and glory.
The great Generalissimos blazed the trail of the Songun revolution, thus creating a new history of Songun and ushering in the era of Songun.
Having clarified in his early days the truth of the revolutionary struggle that one can emerge victorious against an armed enemy only when one fights him with arms in hand and having advanced the idea and line of attaching importance to arms, to military affairs, the great Comrade Kim Il Sung identified building up the armed forces as a fundamental aspect of the revolution, directed primary efforts to organizing and developing the armed ranks and achieved the historic cause of national liberation with the Korean People's Revolutionary Army as the main force. In reliance on the armed force of the
revolution, he wisely led two revolutionary wars, two stages of social revolution and socialist construction, and thus built on this land our style of socialism that is centred on the masses of the people, and demonstrated the dignity and honour of the country.
Comrade Kim Jong Il, who was faithful to Comrade Kim Il Sung's ideas and cause, led our revolution along the glorious road of victory, braving the severe historical trials and adversities by dint of his unique leadership of the Songun revolution. His visit to Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the KPA on August 25, 1960 was a historic event that proclaimed his succession to the cause of the Songun revolution and the start of his Songun-based leadership.
Songun was the General's revolutionary idea, his practice in the revolution, his political ideal and his political mode.
During the long period of more than half a century from the day when he started his leadership of the Songun revolution, the great General visited one KPA unit after another, strengthening the army into an invincible revolutionary army, and led the revolution and construction to victory by force of Songun.
Regarding the strengthening of the KPA as the most important task in the Songun revolution, he raised the KPA as the buttress, the main force, of our revolution, and achieved the historic victory in the grim anti-imperialist, anti-US showdown in defence of the country's security and socialism by training the KPA into the army of the leader that is boundlessly faithful to the cause of the WPK(Workers' Party of Korea), into an invincible revolutionary army.
He defined the spirit of defending the leader to the death, the spirit of implementing his instructions whatever the cost and the heroic self-sacrificing spirit displayed by the service personnel as the revolutionary spirit symbolic and representative of the Songun era, as the revolutionary soldier spirit, and led all the service personnel and people to live and struggle in that spirit, thus ensuring that a great transformation was brought about in all sectors of the revolution and construction.
In order to consolidate the successes of his Songun-based leadership and introduce Songun politics in a comprehensive way, he saw to it that the First Session of the Tenth Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea adopted a Socialist Constitution embodying the idea and principles of the Songun revolution. He established a new state administration structure the backbone of which is the National Defence Commission, and led all state affairs on the principle of giving precedence to military affairs.

As he said, Songun politics is a mode of socialist politics
that presents military affairs as the most important of all state affairs, and defends the country, revolution and socialism and accelerates overall socialist construction with the KPA as the core, as the main force. It is a mode of independent politics that fully embodies the fundamentals and principles of the Songun idea.
Formulating Songun politics as the basic mode of socialist politics has brought about a fundamental change in the history of mankind's politics and the history of socialist politics and created a priceless sword with which to achieve the ideals and principles of socialism successfully.
The General's Songun idea is a revolutionary idea and theory embodying a comprehensive anti-imperialist, independent stand and the spirit of ennobling love for the country, nation and people, and which is based on an iron faith and willpower.
Songun, a new term in our era, was coined to reflect the unshakeable faith, willpower and great fortitude of Comrade Kim Jong Il who, taking full responsibility for the destiny and future of the country and people amid the long-drawn-out, sharp confrontation with an imperialist power, solved all problems in our own way and in conformity with the demands and interests of our people and nation.
As an idea enriched and developed in the course of the practical struggle to apply the Juche idea, the Songun idea is a scientific revolutionary theory which makes it possible to satisfy the requirements of the Juche idea in an ideal and comprehensive manner.
The formulation and development of the idea and theory of the Songun revolution by the great Comrade Kim Jong Il further enriched the ideological and theoretical treasure-house of our revolution and significantly increased the appeal and vitality of the Juche idea.
The Juche idea is the roots of the Songun idea and the latter is the brilliant embodiment of the former.
Thanks to the Songun idea, the Juche idea could be splendidly applied to the revolutionary practice and shine more brightly as a great guiding ideology which guarantees the victorious advance and accomplishment of the masses' cause of independence.

In order to bring about a decisive turn in the construction of a thriving socialist country, the militant functions and role of Party organizations should be further heightened.
Party organizations are the vanguard organizations of the Songun revolution, and the Party's ideology and leadership are implemented through them. They should regard it as the main line of Party work to establish the monolithic leadership system of the Party, and ensure that all officials, Party members and other working people support the leader's ideas and leadership with loyalty and conduct every manner of work in line with the Party's ideology and intentions.
In the current general offensive, Party organizations should give fullest play to the spiritual strength of officials, Party members and other working people. The mother of miracles is the spiritual strength of the masses, and the key to ushering in a new golden age in the building of a thriving nation is to inspire them.
Party organizations should scrupulously educate officials, Patty members and other working people to study the greatness of the General's idea of and achievements in the Songun revolution and exalt their brilliance. They should intensify the frontline-style political work among the masses so that all officials, Party members and other working people make it part of their lives to learn from the service personnel's spirit of defending the leader and carrying out his instructions to the death and their fighting spirit, and make strenuous efforts to create the Masikryong speed by displaying Kim Jong Il's patriotism.
The service personnel and people should propel grand socialist construction on the strength of working together.
Working together is a powerful mode of struggle for the service personnel and people in waging an unyielding offensive with one mind and purpose. The commanding personnel of the KPA and leading civilian officials should scrupulously organize and command their working together and enlist their spiritual strength and every other means so that they perform unfailingly and in time the revolutionary tasks assigned to their respective units.
True to the instructions and lofty will of the great Generalissimos, we should make proactive efforts to open a new phase of national reunification, prevent aggression and war and defend global peace and security.
The idea and cause of our Songun revolution are invincible.
Because the great Juche idea and the Songun revolutionary idea are illuminating the road ahead of us and we have the wise leadership of the Party, the single-hearted unity of all the service personnel and people and the invincible KPA, the victory of the revolutionary cause of Juche and the revolutionary cause of Songun is guaranteed.
As in the past, so in the future and for ever, we will achieve only victory, upholding the great banner of Songun.

Nationwide Anti-U.S. Resistance Called for

A spokesman for the North Side Committee for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration in a statement Monday called for raising higher the flame of nationwide anti-U.S resistance.
The statement said that the south Koreans and overseas compatriots have courageously turned out in anti-U.S. resistance to cope with the U.S. imperialists and the warmongers at home and abroad keen on inflicting the holocaust of nuclear war on this land. The statement extended full support and solidarity to them.
The U.S. is talking about a "preventive war" and a "pre-emptive attack on the north" while egging the south Korean puppet warmongers on to them as part of war provocation hysteria. But this is never to "defend" south Korea, the statement said, and went on:
This is the revelation of the sinister intention of the American colonialists to exterminate the Korean nation, turn the whole Korean peninsula into a base to realize their strategy for putting Northeast Asia under their control.
The U.S. cooked up the UN "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK while viciously faulting the DPRK's just measures for bolstering nuclear force for self-defence. This is aimed to foster mistrust, antagonism, hostility and confrontation among Koreans, hinder national reconciliation and unity and prevent the independent reunification of Korea.
The U.S. imperialists are the sworn enemy as they extremely threaten the sovereignty and the right to existence of the Koreans and the common prosperity of the nation after dividing the Korean nation into two and as they stand in the way of the national reunification, the supreme desire of the nation.
All the Korean people will wage a nationwide anti-U.S. resistance and certainly settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists committing all crimes against the Korean nation and the south Korean authorities going reckless without reason while acting as a shock brigade in executing the U.S. traitorous and criminal moves for putting sanctions against the DPRK and stifling it.

The Koreans from all walks of life in the north and the south and abroad should raise higher the flame of nationwide anti-U.S. resistance to resolutely foil the U.S. imperialists' nuclear war moves against the north and realize the independent reunification of the country as early as possible through the great unity under the banner of By Our Nation Itself.

Rampant Human Rights Abuses within S. Korean Puppet Army Disclosed

The DPRK Measure Council for Human Rights in South Korea released an inquiry report on Monday to give a detailed account of the recent serious human rights abuses within the south Korean puppet army.
According to the report, a large number of suicides were witnessed within the frontline puppet army units in Kangwon Province of south Korea this year alone.
The report said:
Typically, a soldier hung himself by a tree to death on January 26 in Kosong area and a sergeant shot himself to death on the beach on April 10. A recruit was found dead in Cholwon area and a soldier shot himself to death in Hwachon County in May.
On August 9 a soldier was found dead with gunshot wound in a frontline unit in Phaju City, Kyonggi Province.
According to extremely curtailed data published by the puppet military, the number of soldiers now suffering from hypochondria and wanting to leave the army has reached more than 85 000.
Specifically, there are at least 80 000 "trouble-making and dangerous soldiers" who are apt to commit suicide or shooting spree within the army units alone.
Evil doers openly go on a rampage within the military in broad daylight. In July last a "feeding torture" case that occurred in a unit of the marines stunned the public. Wolf like superiors reportedly fed a recruit in a forcible manner to increase his weight to 90 kg and threatened to kill him if he vomited the food he had eaten.
A lawmaker affiliated to the Legislation and Judiciary Committee of the "National Assembly" of south Korea made public information submitted by a military court, which said one soldier is found dead in every four days within the puppet army and 70 percent of them are suicides.
According to a written inquiry conducted by the human rights centre of the puppet army into 100 women soldiers and officers, one of the five suffered sexual abuses.
Now the puppet army is plagued by the idea of "single golden chance" of the brass hats for getting windfall gains. Against this backdrop, human rights abuses are getting more serious within the puppet army as a "military mafia" is reigning over it.
Nevertheless, the south Korean regime is getting desperate in the racket for escalating confrontation with the compatriots in the north, far from tackling the serious human rights problems within the puppet army.

It provokes only side-splitting laughter that the regime is trying to pit the pack of depraved soldiers against the world's strongest army possessed of the invincible nuclear deterrent.

S. Korean Authorities Slammed for Calling for "Tightened S. Korea-U.S. Alliance"

A spokesman for the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation issued a statement Thursday denouncing the south Korean authorities for going reckless while calling for "tightened south Korea-U.S. alliance".
At a time when the U.S. war hysteria against the DPRK has reached the height and the situation on the Korean peninsula has reached the worst phase, the south Korean authorities and the puppet military warmongers are calling for "tightening south Korea- U.S. alliance", the statement said, and went on:
This reckless act little short of adding fuel to nuclear war moves of the Trump group is indicative of the stupidity and sycophancy toward the U.S. by the puppet group.
The pledge to "strengthen south Korea-U.S. alliance" is a commitment to act as a shock brigade in the war of aggression against the north which the U.S. master plans to stage. This is little short of plunging south Korea into unheard-of horrible disaster of a nuclear war.
The south Korean authorities should choose between two things: war to be unleashed by "tightened south Korea-U.S. alliance" or the peace to be achieved by anti-U.S. struggle.

If the south Korean authorities defy the mindset of the public and the demand of the whole nation and keep to the humiliating sycophancy toward the U.S. while currying its favour, they will not be able to evade the sternest punishment by history.

Korean Jurists Committee Terms UNSC's "Sanctions Resolution" against DPRK Illegal

The Korean Jurists Committee Thursday issued a statement terming as illegal the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" cooked up by the U.S. by abusing the UN Security Council over its test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14.
The U.S. fabricated the unprecedented harsh "sanctions resolution" which categorically cut off normal trade activities and economic exchange of the DPRK, the statement said, adding it is an unethical criminal act which contradicts paragraph 2, Article 1 of "International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights" which provides for not depriving a sovereign state of means of existence, and the act which runs counter to internationally recognized peremptory norm.
The UN Security Council is not an exception in the application of the peremptory norm, the statement said, and went on:
This being a hard reality, the UN Security Council has systematically fabricated the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" violating the rights to existence and development from 2006.
In particular, the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" 2371 which was fabricated under the pretext of the DPRK's test-launch of ICBM is aimed to completely prevent the DPRK's economic development and improvement of the people's living standard. Therefore, this is the criminal act fundamentally detrimental to peremptory norm.
Article 53 of the "Vienna Convention on Treaties" which stipulates the legal acts of states and international organizations says that "a treaty is void if, at the time of its conclusion, it conflicts with a peremptory norm of general international law". This goes to clearly prove that all the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" of the UNSC are null and void as they have systematically violated the DPRK's rights to existence and development.

The statement stressed that all the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" fabricated by the U.S. so far by abusing the UNSC should be immediately annulled and the U.S. should pay a high price for the crimes it committed against our state and people.

Kim Jong Un Inspects KPA Strategic Force Command

Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un inspected the Command of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) on Aug. 14.
He waved back to enthusiastically cheering service members and posed for a picture with them.
He went round historical mementoes and data displayed at the Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism Study Hall.
Looking round them, he recalled with deep emotion the great leadership feats of the brilliant commanders of Mt Paektu, recorded on every page of the history of the KPA Strategic Force displaying its might with the strength unprecedented in the world as a powerful strike service, symbolic of the dignity and power of Korea.
Then he listened to General Kim Rak Gyom's decision on the Strategic Force's plan for an enveloping fire at Guam at the command post.
He examined the plan for a long time and discussed it with the commanding officers in real earnest.
He praised the KPA Strategic Force for having drawn up a close and careful plan as intended by the Party and examined the firing preparations for power demonstration.
Being told by the commander of the Strategic Force that it is waiting for the order of the Party Central Committee after rounding off the preparations for the enveloping fire at Guam, he said with great satisfaction that the spirit of Hwasong artillerymen is very high and he was freshly determined, seeing by himself the combat preparedness and the sky-high spirit of the Hwasong artillerymen of the large combined unit.
He said that the U.S. imperialists put their own necks into the noose through their reckless military confrontation racket, adding that he would watch a little longer the conduct of the foolish and stupid Yankees spending a hard time of every minute for their miserable lot.
He said that he wants to advise the U.S., which is running helter-skelter, driving the situation on the Korean peninsula into the worst brink of explosion, to take into full account the gains and losses with clear head, whether the present situation is more unfavourable for which side.
In order to defuse the tensions and prevent the dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula, it is necessary for the U.S. to make a proper option first and show it in action, as it deployed huge nuclear strategic equipment around the peninsula to provoke the DPRK, he said, adding: The U.S. should stop at once its arrogant provocation and unilateral pressure on the DPRK and provoke the latter no longer.
He said that if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous actions around the Korean peninsula, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make a crucial decision as it had already declared, warning the U.S. that it should think reasonably and judge properly so as not to suffer another shame by the DPRK under the eyes of the world.
If the planned fire of power demonstration is carried out due to the U.S. rashness going beyond the limit line, this will be the most delightful historic moment when our Hwasong artillerymen wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks, he said, underlining the need to always stand on fire readiness for going into action once our Party decides.
Then the Supreme Leader went round a military training school and a gymnasium and called for firmly establishing Juche in education and steadily improving the quality of military training to prepare all the Hwasong artillerymen of the large combined unit to be fighters good at the campaign of brains, well versed in the modern military science and technology, the enemy's changed ways of war and Korean-style war methods against them.
He stressed the need to establish a system of re-educating commanding officers and technical personnel of the Strategic Force in line with the modernization and upgrading of ballistic rockets.
Going round the supply service facilities of the large combined unit, including a dining hall of sub-unit, he showed paternal care for servicepersons' life.
He enjoyed a performance given by an art squad of the large combined unit at the soldier’s hall.
Expressing satisfaction over the good performance which vividly represented the operational mission and features of the Strategic Force and the desire, thoughts and feelings of the Hwasong artillerymen, he gave precious teachings for the art squad's performance activities.
The Strategic Force has a very important position and duty to play in carrying out the strategic plans of the Workers' Party of Korea, he said, calling on the Strategic Force to firmly establish the monolithic leadership system, the monolithic command and management system of the Supreme Commander over the nuclear force and further complete the Juche-oriented rocket strike methods.
Saying with deep trust that it is reassuring to have the KPA Strategic Force, reliable treasured sword guaranteeing the everlasting future of the country and nation, he expressed expectation and belief that all the officers and men of the Strategic Force would bring about a fresh turn in rounding off the combat preparedness, well aware of the important mission they have assumed before the Party, the country and the people.
With his deep trust, the officers and men of the KPA Strategic Force hardened their resolve to win the final victory in the standoff with the U.S. by scorching with super strong strikes the targets in south Korea, Japan, operational area in the Pacific and the U.S. mainland, flying the sacred red flags of the Party and flags of the Supreme Commander at every matchless launching pad once he gives an order.

Accompanying him was KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Kim Jong Sik, vice department director of the C.C., Workers' Party of Korea.
