U.S. "North Korean Human Rights Act" Flailed
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA today as regards the recent passage of the "North Korean Human Rights Act" through the U.S.
Recently, the U.S. Senate passed the act presented by the House of Representatives in July after partly modifying and supplementing it, despite the concern and opposition at home and abroad.
The act is full of anti-DPRK poisonous clauses. It calls for spending out of the U.S. government budget 24 million U.S. dollars for those organizations and individuals taking part in the activities to bring down the system in the DPRK under the pretext of "improving the human rights situation in north Korea".
The aim sought by the act was clearly revealed by the remarks made by a senator from the Republican Party just before its passage that the downfall of the north Korean government is not far off as was the case with the collapse of the former Soviet Union.
In the long run, the act is one more declaration of the hostile Korea policy which fully disclosed the U.S. real intention to slander and insult the DPRK, a dignified sovereign state, and topple the socialist system chosen by its people.
It is nothing strange that the U.S. is hell bent on its hostile Korea policy as it is steeped in the inveterate denial of the DPRK system.
The U.S. says this and that about the human rights issue of someone, unaware of its position in which it is being censured as the worst violator of human rights. This is a challenge to human conscience. The U.S. is the world's worst violator of human rights as it is killing innocent civilians including children everyday after illegally igniting a war against Iraq.
The U.S. is so brazen-faced as to cry out for "global security" and talk about "human rights" after reducing Iraq to a sea of blood. Nothing is more disgusting than this behaviour..
It has already provided strong financial and material support to those organizations hatching plots against the DPRK around it. In the meantime, it is pressurizing some countries to create ample environment for conducting the operation to tarnish the DPRK's international image and bring down its system.
The reality clearly testifies to the truth that the DPRK should counter the Bush administration with the corresponding force only as it is totally rejecting the dignified Korean style ideology and system and persistently working to impose the American style view on value and way of living, pursuant to the policy of strength.
The U.S. has reached a reckless phase of its efforts to destroy the socialist system in the DPRK, totally denying the co-existence with it, and thus rendered the dialogue and negotiations for solving the nuclear issue meaningless.
This has deprived the DPRK of any justification to deal with the U.S., to say nothing of the reason for holding the six-party talks for settling the nuclear issue.
The DPRK is now left with no option but to put spurs to increasing the deterrent force to counter the U.S. by force to the last.
Desperate efforts on the part of the U.S. to destroy the system in the DPRK will only reinforce the faith of its army and people in socialism and heighten their spirit to shatter the U.S. reckless provocations.
U.S. Threat of Preemptive Attack on DPRK Assailed
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- U.S. President Bush, speaking recently at the 59th session of the UN General Assembly, vociferated about the validity of the U.S. aggression on Iraq, contending that it helped liberate the Iraqi people from a dictator. He went to the lengths of stating without hesitation that the U.S. would have attacked Iraq even if it had known that the latter had no weapons of mass destruction.
Commenting on this a Rodong Sinmun analyst Monday brands his remarks as outcries of a fascist tyrant steeped in war, murder and plunder, which revealed strong-arm and arbitrary practices and unilateralism utterly ignoring the UN Charter and international law.
The news analyst goes on:
As the world public recognizes, the Iraqi war unleashed by the U.S. was a war of injustice marred by criminal massacre of Iraqis and worst abuses of their human rights.
Extreme social confusion and disorder, never ceasing vicious cycle of terrorism and retaliation, tragedies of bloodshed everywhere, growing unemployment and economic stagnancy--this is the reality of Iraq "liberated from the dictator" claimed by Bush.
His rigmarole about "liberation" and "help" is an insult to the Iraqi people, a challenge to international law and a reversed logic of a murderous robber. His outpouring that the U.S. would have attacked Iraq even though it had known that the latter had no weapons of mass destruction glaringly revealed the aggressive and predatory nature of the United States.
The U.S. which has got more arrogant through its aggression on Iraq is intensifying its military moves around the Korean peninsula, directing the sharp edge of its preemptive strike to the DPRK. The situation is becoming more complicated and the danger of war is growing at the moment when the next round of the six-party talks ended abortive owing to the U.S. The U.S. threat of preemptive attack on the DPRK is being carried into reality.
This reality leaves the DPRK no alternative but to increase its war deterrent in every possible way with high revolutionary vigilance. No one can tell when the U.S. imperialists would make a preemptive attack on the DPRK as they regard it as a key to the implementation of their strategy of aggression on Asia to stifle the DPRK.
But the U.S. should face things squarely. A preemptive attack is not its monopoly.
If it dare fire first, not seeing who is its adversary, it will have to pay dearly for it.

WPK Founding Anniversary Celebrated Abroad
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- Seminars, lectures and film shows were held at the Lahore Branch of the Pakistan-Korea Friendship Association, the Pakistan Socialist Party, the Peru National Association for the Juche Idea and the Youth Group for the Study of the Juche Idea in Democratic Congo from September 25 to 29 on the occasion of the 59th anniversary of the foundation of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK).
The WPK is a Juche-type revolutionary party guided by the Juche idea and a mass political party firmly defending the demand and interests of the masses of the working people and deeply rooted among the broad masses, noted Abid Hussein, chairman of the National Workers' Party of Pakistan, Mohammad Amed Khan, member of the Central Executive Committee of the Pakistan People's Party, and Mohammad Aslam Nagi, secretary general of the Lahore Branch of the Pakistan-Korea Friendship Association, in their speeches.
Mohammad Aslam Malik, secretary general of the Pakistan Trade Union Federation who is member of the Central Committee of the Pakistan Socialist Party, in his lecture titled "The party winning victories with the strength of idea" said the WPK has been firmly consolidating the ideological position of socialism by putting ideology in the foreground and placing the ideological work before anything else and solving all the problems arising in the revolution and construction by setting people's idea in motion.
Only victory and glory are always in store for the Korean people so long as they are guided by the Songun policy of leader Kim Jong Il and the WPK upholds his Songun idea and leadership, he said.
The chairman of the Peru National Association for the Juche Idea in his lecture explained the historical significance of the foundation of the WPK while the chairman of the Youth Group for the Study of the Juche Idea in Democratic Congo said the WPK could always grow stronger and develop as the party of President Kim Il Sung and make a great advance in all spheres including socialist construction, national reunification and international relations by holding Kim Jong Il in high esteem at its head.
A message of greetings to Kim Jong Il was adopted at the lecture session held by the Pakistan Socialist Party.
"New Looks of Korea," "The International Friendship Exhibition," and other Korean films were screened at the film shows.
Greetings to German President
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, Sunday sent a message of greetings to German President Horst Kohler on the national day of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Wishing the German people prosperity and welfare, the message expressed the belief that the friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries would grow in scope and develop in various fields.
Scheme to Institute "Bill on Human Rights of North Korea" Denounced
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The Reunification Solidarity of south Korea reportedly released a statement on Sept. 30 denouncing the U.S. scheme to enact the "Bill on Human Rights of North Korea".
Recalling that the U.S. Senate passed the bill, the statement said the scheme is serious because the U.S. hostile policy towards the north has entered the stage of full-scale practice.
The U.S. outcries over the "human rights" issue are an untenable hypocrisy.
Its moves to enact the bill are, in fact, little short of denial to improve the north Korea-U.S. relations through dialogue.
The U.S. should promptly retract the whole of its hostile policy towards the north and come to dialogue for improving the north Korea-U.S. relations.
Foundation Day of Korea Celebrated
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- A function was held in front of King Tangun's Mausoleum Sunday to commemorate the Foundation Day of Korea.
Present there were Kim Yong Dae, vice-president of the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly who is chairman of the National Reconciliation Council, Ryu Mi Yong, chairperson of the Council for the Reunification of Tangun's Nation (CRTN), O Ik Je, vice-chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, officials concerned and overseas Koreans visiting the socialist homeland.
A memorial service for King Tangun took place first.
Members of the CRTN and overseas Koreans offered wine to his soul and observed a moment's silence in his honor.
Then, Kang Chol Won, vice-chairman of the CRTN, made a commemorative report.
Recalling that President Kim Il Sung found the ancestral father of the nation and leader Kim Jong Il rebuilt his grave into a grand mausoleum, the reporter said this was an event of great significance in establishing a correct national history and served as a powerful impetus in enabling all the fellow countrymen to create a new history by their concerted efforts with the pride and honor of the nation with a time-honored history and brilliant culture.
We owe it to the great Songun policy that our nation has become able to significantly celebrate together the Foundation Day of Korea, he said, and added: The whole nation should uphold the most patriotic Songun leadership which makes it possible to defend peace on the Korean peninsula from foreign aggression and display national dignity all over the world and leads the nation to the country's reunification and prosperity.
He earnestly called upon all the people to powerfully demonstrate the mettle and wisdom of Tangun's nation in the nation-wide struggle to achieve independence, peace and reunification by the concerted efforts of the nation under the uplifted banner of the June 15 joint declaration, the great program of independent reunification.
A joint appeal to the compatriots in the north, the south and overseas, which had been agreed upon between the CRTN of the north side and the Preparatory Committee for the Joint Celebration of the Foundation Day of Korea of the south side, was read at the function.
S. Korean Authorities' Dangerous Arms Buildup Assailed
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities at a recent State Council meeting decided to increase the national defense budget for the next year 9.9 percent over this year.
A signed commentary of Rodong Sinmun Monday brands their arms buildup plan as an unpardonable criminal move to increase the tensions on the Korean peninsula and push the inter-Korean relations to those of military stand-off and a war.
It goes on:
The south Korean authorities are increasing the military spending and putting spurs to the reinforcement and modernization of the south Korean forces to keep pace with the U.S. arms build-up, grumbling that the "reduction" of the U.S. forces would cause "security vacuum." This is prompted by their criminal plot to bring holocaust of a nuclear war to this land, pursuant to the U.S. policy for a war of aggression against the north.
The south Korean authorities are hell-bent on provocative arms build-up, advocating a "policy for self-reliant national defense." It is not the military field that needs self-reliance but foreign and political affairs and efforts for reunification.
The Koreans desirous of the independent reunification do not want arms race and confrontation between fellow countrymen but peace of the country and reconciliation between the north and the south. The south Korean authorities can never escape from denunciation and rebuff by all the Koreans as they swim against this trend.
The DPRK invariably aspires after peace and reunification of the Korean peninsula but does not pardon those who seek to do harm to it. It is the spirit and grit of the army and people of the DPRK to react against provocation with punishment and meet any challenge with a merciless strike.
The south Korean authorities should cancel at once such a dangerous arms build-up plan, cogitating about the grave consequences to be entailed by their reckless moves for military confrontation.
All Koreans Called upon to Put End to History of U.S. Military Presence in S. Korea
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The history of the presence of the U.S. imperialist aggression troops in south Korea is a history of disasters as it has checked the socio-political development in south Korea and brought all sorts of misfortune and sufferings to the Koreans and a crime-woven history as it has stood in the way of the uniform development of the Korean nation and seriously threatened peace and stability on the Korean peninsula. Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a signed article.
It goes on:
The Koreans can never pardon the U.S. imperialists because they have drenched the whole of south Korea with the blood shed by them, keeping it under their occupation for about 60 years.
Their military occupation severed the blood ties of the Korean nation which had lived together for 5,000 years, imposing upon the Korean people bitter sufferings and tragedy resulting from the division upon it in the new century, too.
But for the U.S. occupation of south Korea, Korea would not have been divided into two parts and but for the U.S. persistent obstructions, the Korean nation would have achieved its reunification long ago.
It was none other than the U.S. that installed a puppet regime in south Korea, hamstringing the Korean people's efforts to establish a unified government after their country's liberation on August 15, 1945 and ignited a war against the north early in the 50s, dampening the Koreans' desire for peaceful reunification. The U.S. imperialists have worked more desperately to block the movement for the reunification of Korea in the new century when energetic efforts are being made to implement the historic June 15 North-South Joint Declaration.
Undertakings for north-south reconciliation, exchange and cooperation are faced with frustration and confusion due to the U.S. plots and moves against reunification. The U.S. imperialists have played with the destiny of the Korean nation and imposed sacrifices upon it for nearly six decades in a bid to realize their aggressive ambition. These crimes are unprecedented in history.
The Koreans in the north and the south and overseas will turn out as one in the nationwide struggle to force the U.S. imperialist aggression forces out of south Korea without delay and thus put a definite end to the disgraceful history of keeping aggressor forces in their land, the article concludes.
Officials of Cabinet Secretariat Assist Builders of Taean Friendship Glass Factory
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- Senior and other officials of the Secretariat of the DPRK Cabinet Sunday assisted the builders of the Taean Friendship Glass Factory.
After the grand ground-breaking ceremony on July 1 the builders there successfully carried out the blasting of 300,000 cubic meters of earth and then have energetically pushed ahead with ground-leveling, excavation of the foundation and concrete tamping. Now they are hastening preparations to enter into the main project in the final stage.
The officials of the cabinet secretariat handed over a large amount of aid materials they had prepared with sincerity to the builders who were effecting innovations every day, eager to build the factory, the best symbol of DPRK-China friendship, as a monumental edifice of the times. They did the assembling of reinforcing iron with the builders, encouraging them in their work.
The builders are working with redouble vigor to wind up the construction as scheduled amid the deep concern and support of the people across the country.
Legend on Formation of Koguryo
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- There are many legends on Koguryo (277 B.C.-668 A.D.), a powerful nation in the East.
The legend on the formation of Koguryo is one of them.
It serves as important data in the study of history as it reflects the course of the building of Koguryo by Jumong and the then social life.
The oldest one of the legends is the story about the national building inscribed in the stone monument to the King Kwanggaetho's Mausoleum erected in Jian, Jilin Province, China in the year 414.
According to the legend, first King Chumo, son of Heaven and water gods, comes down to the south from the North Puyo together with his followers, builds a castle on the mountain west of Holbon, Piryugok and sets up the capital there.
Koguryo part in the book "Samguksagi" (the history of the three kingdoms--Koguryo, Paekje and Silla) conveys details of the legend.
On the order of Heaven God, Haeburu, king of Puyo, moves to the place called Kasopwon where he builds East Puyo. Haeburu's old capital was occupied by Haemosu. Haemosu marries to Ryu Hwa, a daughter of Ha Paek, without her parents' approval. So she goes into exile in the area south of Mt. Thaebaek. King Kumwa, a son of Haeburu, meets with Ryu Hwa and listens to her story. And he lets her live in a detached palace. She gives birth to a son called Jumong. Princes of Puyo are jealous of him and weave a plot to kill him because he has been brave and crack archer from childhood. Jumong, together with his friends, flees from the area and arrives at the Holbon Stream. Learning that the area has steep mountains and fertile land, he builds a country beside the River Piryu and names it Koguryo. He takes the first letter of the country's name "Ko" as his surname.
Besides, stories about the building of Koguryo by Jumong are recorded in various other historical documents. Among them are the book "Part of King Tongmyong" by Ri Kyu Bo in 1193, "Story of Successive Kings" by Ri Sung Hyu in 1287, "Samgukyusa" by Il Yon at the end of the 13th century and Paekje Part of "Samguksagi".
Such historical books as "Samgukyusa" and "Geographical Book of True Records of Sejong" write King Tongmyong as Emperor Tongmyong and that Koguryo, an empire, instituted and used its own calander and had some states of feudal lords, rejecting foreign domination and interference and exercising sovereignty. All this vividly shows the features of Koguryo as a sovereign state.
External Economic Legal Advice Office in DPRK
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The External Economic Legal Advice Office under the Central Committee of the Korean Bar Association gives legal service to foreign corporate bodies and Korean institutions, enterprises and trade officials as regards external economic activities.
Its mission is to settle legal issues regarding international economic investment and trade relations.
It, founded in June Juche 88(1999), has experts with the qualification of lawyer of the Korean Bar Association, and rich knowledge and experience about international and Korean trade and economic laws.
It has fairly done over 100 cases of legal representation and legal service to guarantee safety to the economic transactions of local and foreign enterprises.
Songun Leadership Praised
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The Workers' Party of Korea founded and led by President Kim Il Sung has its best days in building a revolutionary party under the Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il. Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a signed article.
Kim Jong Il is the great leader who has strengthened and developed the WPK into an invincible revolutionary party under the banner of Songun, the article says, and goes on:
The years when he has led the WPK occupy a particularly important place in its glorious history.
Under the banner of Songun politics the WPK has been converted into an invincible party which leads the revolutionary cause of Juche exactly the way the President did and a steel-strong party whose members are single-heartedly united around the headquarters of the revolution with a strong sense of organization and discipline.
Kim Jong Il set forth the Songun political mode, basing himself on a deep analysis of the requirements of the changed reality. This is an immortal exploit as it helped lay an eternal cornerstone for successfully carrying forward and accomplishing the idea and cause of the President.
The WPK has more striking features as an invincible militant party because all its members are rallied close around the headquarters of the revolution with a single idea, intention and will.
Under the banner of Songun politics, the Party has been further developed as a mother party which serves the people and strives to meet their interests.
What is important in the leadership exploits performed by Kim Jong Il in strengthening and developing the WPK into an ever-victorious steel-strong party is that he made sure that its ranks turned into a contingent of Songun revolutionary soldiers replete with the spirit of devotedly defending the leader and the leadership role of the party was increased in every way to meet the need of the Songun era and wisely steered the work to bring about a new turn in work style and trait of the officials.
His Songun leadership serves as a great revolutionary banner making it possible to glorify the WPK as an eternal party of Kim Il Sung and as an invincible treasured sword for drastically increasing the militancy of the party in defending socialism and building a great prosperous powerful nation of Juche.
Letter to Kim Jong Il from Chinese Children
Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il Sunday received a letter from the little young artistes of the Shanghai Juvenile Art Troup on a visit to the DPRK.
Recalling that leader Kim Jong Il watched dance "Appearance of China" spiced with national flavour of China they presented in his honor at Shanghai Grand Theatre on January 17, 2001, the letter said that all the children who participated in the performance at that time were greatly excited to have the honor to perform for him.
The traditional friendship between the two peoples of the DPRK and China have grown stronger and splendidly developed under the warm care and leadership of the new leaders of China with Hu Jintao as general secretary and Kim Jong Il, the letter said, and continued:
This July the Pyongyang Schoolchildren's Art Troupe of the DPRK came to Shanghai to participate in the 2004 Shanghai International Juvenile Culture and Art Festival and gave its performances. The refined performance and good moral trait of Korean children struck Chinese with admiration and left deep and beautiful impressions upon us.
What delighted us most was that the Central Committee of the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League, at your instruction, formally invited the 142-member Shanghai Juvenile Art Troupe in China to make a performance tour of the DPRK from September 28 to October 5, 2004.
All of us are very pleased to have an opportunity to have a mutual understanding and share joy and friendly feelings again with children of heroic Korea, a country we have longed to visit for years, and carry forward the great Sino-Korean friendship together with them.
It is our particular honor and fortune today to have presented our songs and dances to you and conveyed the best wishes and high respects of all Chinese children to you.
We will work harder with the Korean children to convey the Sino-DPRK friendship to posterity.
The letter sincerely wished Kim Jong Il good health and hoped that the Korean children would grow up stoutly under his leadership and deep care.

CCRC denuncia vil intriga de EE.UU. en materia de religion
Pyongyang, 4 de octubre (ATCC) -- El Consejo de Creyentes Religiosos de Corea (CCRC), en su declaracion fechada 3, denuncio severamente a Estados Unidos, que con el supuesto "problema de la religion" lleno de fraudes e intrigas, se afana por las maniobras en contra de la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea, calificandolo de una banda de diablos que no tiene ni moralidad ni devocion y exigio energicamente a ese pais norteamericano a poner incondicionalmente fin al empleo malintencionado del "problema religioso" en la politica de hostilidad a la RPDC, y prosiguio:
Hace poco, EE.UU. publico un "informe anual sobre la libertad de religion internacional" en el cual critico de una manera u otra a la RPDC por el "problema de la religion" y acuso a esta del "Estado represor de la religion", Esto no pasa de ser calumnias para aplastarla cueste lo que cueste.
Como lo prueban fehacientemente la historia criminal de EE.UU. manchada de agresiones y guerras y la complicada realidad, este es el primer Estado represor y caudillo de supresion de la religion en el mundo.
Por lo tanto, el hecho de que esta superpotencia habla de la politica religiosa de la RPDC como si fuera un "juez de inquisicion internacional" es una absurdidad, el menosprecio al ideal religioso e insulto a los creyentes religiosos.
Todos los religiosos de la RPDC, con la conciencia y orgullo de ser civiles de la patria socialista, haran mas solida la unidad monolitica y cumpliran con su responsabilidad y papel honrosos asumidos ante la construccion de una gran potencia prospera socialista y la epoca de reunificacion independiente del 15 de junio.
Expresamos esperanza de que las comunidades internacionales de cultos y los pueblos progresistas del mundo, que aspiran al amor, la justicia y la paz, justipreciaran el verdadero aspecto de las viles maniobras de intriga religiosa y de oposicion a la RPDC de EE.UU. y enviaran activo apoyo y respaldo a la justa voz del pueblo coreano que las denuncia y rechaza.
