Glorifying History of Single-hearted Unity Called for

    Pyongyang, June 1 (KCNA) -- June is a significant month which marks the 40th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's start of work at the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea. Papers Tuesday in their editorials dedicated to this anniversary say:
    Kim Jong Il has performed immortal exploits for the times, the revolution, the country and people while leading the Party and the revolution for the last four decades. The most brilliant success achieved by him in this is that he achieved the single-hearted unity of the whole Party, the entire army and all the people.
    Rodong Sinmun says:
    Kim Jong Il's ceaseless thinking and dedication that resulted in achieving the single-hearted unity, the mainstay and the most powerful weapon for carrying out the Korean revolution, represent the greatest feat that can hardly be performed by any great man of the world.
    The DPRK's single-hearted unity is the strong unity of the whole Party, the entire army and all the people in thinking and purpose under the banner of his great revolutionary idea.
    He proclaimed the program of modeling the whole Party and society on the Juche idea long ago. This marked a milestone in developing the single-hearted unity of our revolutionary ranks on a new higher stage. This provided fundamental guidelines for achieving the revolutionary unity on the basis of the theory of uniting around the leader for the first time in history and placed the unity and cohesion of our revolutionary ranks dating back to the early period of our revolution on the highest stage.
    He firmly armed the whole Party, the entire army and all the people with the revolutionary idea of President Kim Il Sung, built the Party into invincible united vanguard ranks, guided by it, and led it to put main emphasis on the ideological education and the work of remoulding man in its activities under the banner of the theory of ideology, thus placing the single-hearted unity of our revolutionary ranks on a new higher stage and turning the country into an ideologically strong nation. These exploits performed by him will remain shining for ages.
    The driving force of the Songun revolution has grown stronger through the drive to model all members of the society on the Songun idea making dynamic progress under his leadership. The Songun idea based on the Juche idea is the core of his revolutionary idea and serves as a foundation of the ideological unity of our revolutionary ranks.
    The entire army and all the people who cherish the invincible Juche-oriented Songun idea as their faith are firmly united around the headquarters of the revolution. This is a proud feature of the single-hearted unity in the Songun era and a striking demonstration of their invincible might. This single-hearted unity will guarantee eternal victory in the struggle for defending socialism and achieving the prosperity of the country.
    The single-hearted unity represents the unbreakable unity of the community united by the common destiny as the whole Party, the entire army and all the people follow Kim Jong Il, entirely entrusting all their destinies to him.
    The whole army and all the people always remember the activities conducted by him during the "Arduous March" to protect the destiny of the country and the nation with his original Songun policy for giving priority to the army in his 40 year-long history of party leadership. It is the true feature of the single-hearted unity of Songun Korea that the leader always thinks of the people while they always long to see him.
    The single-hearted unity in the DPRK is a brilliant fruition of his warm humanity and revolutionary comradeship.
    It was produced by his outstanding personality as a great man. As the leader is great, the centre of the single-hearted unity is unshakable and its might is inexhaustible.
    The DPRK's army and people will always carry forward the history of the unity of our Party, highly proud and honoured to have been blessed with the illustrious leaders and great men century after century, and thus always glorify Kim Jong Il's immortal exploits.

"Relocation of Forces" for Sinister Purpose under Fire

    Pyongyang, June 1 (KCNA) -- The United States is intending to transfer part of its troops present in south Korea to Iraq with an outcry over the "urgency of the Iraqi situation" and deploy reinforced troops in south Korea, notes Minju Joson Tuesday, and adds: This eloquently proves that the "relocation of forces" in south Korea undertaken by the U.S. under the pretext of the Iraqi situation is no more than a move to deploy more modernized military hardware in south Korea. The news analyst goes on:
    And it must not go unnoticed that the intensified arms beefing-up by the U.S. is designed for its permanent occupation of south Korea and preemptive attack on the DPRK.
    It is the invariable Korea strategy of the U.S. to keep a tight grip on south Korea as its military base for aggression and, with it as its base, attain its aggressive goal against the DPRK.
    The U.S. moves are throwing a wet blanket over the growing atmosphere of reconciliation, cooperation and peace between the north and the south of Korea and creating the danger of a new war on the Korean peninsula.
    The reality shows that the security of the country and the nation cannot be defended, not to speak of the reunification and peace of the Korean peninsula, with the U.S. occupation policy in south Korea and its moves to stifle the DPRK being left alone.
    The army and people of the DPRK are making all necessary preparations to cope with the U.S. "relocation of forces", seeing through its sinister intention in time. They have the great banner of Songun and military deterrent force powerful enough to smash the provocation of any aggressor at one blow.
    If the U.S. ventured a preemptive strike at the DPRK, making little account of the will and strength of its army and people, they would never miss the chance but sweep the U.S. imperialists off this land to the last man and surely achieve the noble cause of national reunification, the cherished desire of the nation.

S. Korean Women Oppose Troop Dispatch to Iraq

    Pyongyang, June 1 (KCNA) -- A joint press conference of 17th "National Assemblywomen" elects and women's organizations for reexamination of the troop dispatch to Iraq was reportedly held in Seoul on May 24. Participating in the press conference were "National Assemblywomen" elects, 51 women's organizations including the south Korean Federation of Women's Organizations and the Women's Society for Peace and victims of the comfort women for the Japanese imperial army.
    At the press conference speakers made clear the unjustness of the U.S. war of aggression on Iraq, calling upon the peace- and justice-loving women to pool strength and come out in the struggle against war and troop dispatch to Iraq.
    "National Assemblywomen" elects in a press release said now is the time for them not to push ahead with the troop dispatch but to reexamine the motion on it more seriously and take measures.
    They strongly demanded that the government make an all-round reexamination of the motion on the troop dispatch to Iraq. The 17th "National Assembly" should make positive efforts to oppose the troop dispatch, they stressed.
    The participants shouted slogans "World free from war with the strength of women" and "Peace to Iraq with strength of women" and recited a "poem of peace".

Attempt to Enhance Role of U.S. Troops in S. Korea Condemned

    Pyongyang, June 1 (KCNA) -- Mun Kyu Hyon and Hong Kun Su, permanent representatives of the People for Achieving Peace and Reunification in south Korea, reportedly made public a joint statement titled "The United States, immediately stop the attempt to enhance the role of the south Korea-U.S. combined forces" on May 27. The statement referred to the fact that the chief of staff of the south Korea-U.S. combined forces command at a news conference blustered that in case of contingency in the East Asia-Pacific region the U.S. troops stationed in south Korea may be rushed in to control it. His remarks betrayed an undisguised intention to involve the south Korean army in the U.S. military operations under the cloak of the military alliance and, furthermore, turn this land into a base for the U.S. war of aggression, the statement said, and pointed out:
    His remarks are an expression of the will to use the south Korean army as an understrapper in securing the U.S. military domination over Northeast Asia and carrying on a war of aggression, which is a criminal attempt to throw south Korean troops and resources into the war of aggression.
    Plainly speaking, it is an act of frontally going against peace in the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia, the statement said, strongly demanding that the authorities make clear their official stand concerning it before the people.

    We wish the Korean people greater success in their efforts to defend their country and build a great prosperous powerful nation, true to the Songun revolutionary leadership of Kim Jong Il.

At Least 190 Cases of U.S. Aerial Espionage Committed in May

    Pyongyang, June 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists committed at least 190 cases of aerial espionage against the DPRK in May by mobilizing strategic and tactical reconnaissance planes with different missions, according to military sources.

Mas de 190 espionajes aereos de los yanquis

    Pyongyang, el primero de junio (ATCC) -- Segun fuentes militares, los imperialistas norteamericanos perpetraron en mayo mas de 190 espionajes aereos contra la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea movilizando intensivamente los aviones de reconocimiento estrategico y tactico de diversas misiones. En particular, la frecuencia de espionajes de "U-2" y otros aviones con bases ultramarinas como "RC-135", "E-3" y "EP-3" alcanza a mas de 40 veces.
    Por otra parte, se movilizaron los dias 4 y 21, respectivamente, 8 aviones; y los 6, 20, 24 y 27, 7 aviones "RC-12", "RC-7B", etc., que sobrevolaron entre la isla Kanghwa y Phochon, entre Phochon y Sokcho para espionajes sobre la zona avanzada del frente y regiones litorales de nuestra parte.
    Tales espionajes aereos, siendo un eslabon del plan de guerra de agresion al Norte de Corea, demuestran fehacientemente que es invariable el intento de los imperialistas yanquis de reubicar a sus uniformados ocupantes del Sur de Corea e introducir mayor cantidad de los equipos mortiferos de punta para asestar primer ataque sorpresivo contra la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea y aplastarla militarmente.
