Abrogation of NSL Urged in S. Korea

   Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- The Family Movement for Realizing Democracy in south Korea reportedly held the 651st Thursday meeting in Seoul on Feb. 1, at which it declared that it would fight out for the abrogation of the "National Security Law." Speakers at the meeting referred to the fact that the security authorities, who would fake up all sorts of "cases," recently searched the house of Ri Si U, a media-person, charging that he "gave away a state secret."
    Such reckless suppression of Ri who has worked for peace is attributable to the NSL, an evil law of the times that is still left intact, they said.
    They held that the security mechanism should be dissolved without fail as it is used only to imprison pro-reunification patriots and democrats.

Struggle against GNP Staged in S. Korea

   Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- A press conference denouncing the "Grand National Party," a descendant of Chun Doo Hwan, was reportedly called in front of the GNP building in Seoul on Feb. 2 under the sponsorship of the South Kyongsang Provincial Measure Committee of south Korea against "Ilhae Park."

    Then, a statement denouncing the GNP was read out at the press conference. It said that if the GNP connives at the case of "Ilhae Park," the people would wage a decisive resistance against it which is branded as a party defiling the people and committing crimes against ethics and a party seeking to restore the "5th Republic."
    After the press conference, members of civic and public organizations including the measure committee struggled to have an interview with the representative of the GNP to convey a written protest to him.
    They staged a demonstration.

Japan's Dangerous Scheme to Build New Support System for War under Fire

   Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- Japanese Prime Minister Abe some time ago addressed a joint session of both houses, setting out the policy orientation and targets for this year, in which he elaborated on the need to "revise the constitution." Viewing this as a clear indication that the goal of his Cabinet is nothing but militarization peculiar to Japan, a by-lined article of Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says: The Abe Cabinet is pitching for turning Japan into a state pursuing a war under the flowery signboard of building "a beautiful country."
    It, to begin with, is going to change the present state system into a wartime system for overseas aggression.
    The Japanese militarist forces revived under the aegis of the U.S. imperialists have long sought to replace the state system based on the "pacifist constitution" with one allowing lawful aggression overseas.
    In recent years, the Japanese reactionary ruling camp has become more outspoken in their push for completely changing the state system into a wartime system.
    Abe in his Diet speech waxed eloquent, blaring that "it is now time to embark anew and boldly revise the postwar regime by going back to the starting point," and it was his "mission to draw up a new national image for Japan."
    The Abe Cabinet intends to reshape the state structure after the U.S. pattern to subordinate it to the moves for overseas aggression.
    The Defense Agency has been upgraded to Defense Ministry in the Abe Cabinet. This is a big step toward the building of a state pursuing a war.
    Now it is going to scrap the "pacifist constitution" in a bid to make Japan a war-oriented state.
    The word "pacifist" could be attached to the present constitution of Japan because Article 9 of it bans possession of war capability and war itself. The Japanese reactionary ruling camp is going to get rid of such basic provisions.
    The Abe group is working to create a social climate favorable for bringing a war-oriented state into shape by inculcating militarist idea into the minds of the Japanese people in real earnest. It is only too natural that the world is heightening vigilance against the militarization maneuvers of the Japanese reactionaries.

U.S. Accused of Patronizing Japan's Distortion of History

   Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- The United States is now openly using as an English textbook for middle school students in all its regions a historical novel of Japan which shamelessly distorts the history of aggression of Japan and insults the Korean nation. This book is said to have been distributed in some foreigners' schools in south Korea, too. Commenting on this, a Rodong Sinmun analyst Wednesday says:
    It is an intolerable mockery of and insult to the Korean nation and a very nefarious act trampling upon justice and praising the history of injustice for the U.S. to allow itself to use the novel distorting history as a middle school textbook, in which the reactionaries of Japan maliciously slander the Korean nation.
    As for the autobiographical novel which is said to have been written by a daughter of a Japanese war criminal who was eleven years old when the Japanese imperialists were defeated, it is full of lies and fabrication utterly inconsistent with the then historical environment and facts.
    The U.S. must know that Japan kept Korea under their military occupation and brutal and harsh colonial fascist repressive rule unparalleled in history for over 40 years. Nevertheless, the U.S. is openly using the blatantly distorted history book of Japan, which was written by an offspring of a war criminal. This reveals its intention to bury in oblivion the bloody past crimes of the islanders and use them as a shock brigade of aggression and war by misleading public opinion.
    All this proves irrefutably that the U.S. and Japan are dangerous accomplices and conspirators in the hostile policies against the DPRK and aggressive moves.
    The criminal acts of Japan insulting the Korean nation and brazenly distorting history and the U.S. imperialists zealously singing duet with them can never be overlooked.

Study Tour Made of Revolutionary Battle Sites and Historic Sites in Mt. Paektu Area

   Samjiyon, February 6 (KCNA) -- A group of youths and children from all parts of the country for the study tour of the old home in the secret camp in Mt. Paektu went round the revolutionary battle sites and historic sites in Mt. Paektu area from Feb. 1 to 6 on the threshold of February 16, the greatest national holiday. The members of the group placed floral baskets and bouquets before the statues of President Kim Il Sung at the Pochonbo Revolutionary Battle Site and on the shore of Lake Samji before making bows.
    While visiting the Pochonbo Revolutionary Battle Site, the members of the study tour group deeply grasped the gifted tactics and wisdom of Kim Il Sung, going round the then historic command post of the Pochonbo battle, police post of the Japanese imperialists, sub-county administration office and other battle sites.
    They reached the secret camp in Mt. Paektu through Posori spring, Junghung tableland, Phothae revolutionary historic site and Rimyongsu revolutionary historic site. In front of the old home in the secret camp they held an oath-taking meeting of youths and children from all parts of the country.

    Then they visited buildings of the Songun era erected in the township of Samjiyon County including the Paektu Museum and Samjiyon Schoolchildrenfs Palace.
    During the tour they had question-and-answer contests on the joint editorial for this year and the brilliant revolutionary history of the Workers' Party of Korea and a contest of singing revolutionary songs in chorus while marching in array, sports games, recreation party and other political and cultural events.

Sinister Intention of Japanese Reactionaries in Suppressing Chongryon Debunked

   Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- What the Japanese reactionaries seek in their hysteric suppression of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and Koreans in Japan is to aggravate the DPRK-Japan relations by getting on the nerve of the DPRK by persecuting Koreans in Japan and suppressing Chongryon to destroy it and, with this as a pretext, justify their clamorous sanctions and pressure upon the DPRK and realize their ambition to stage a comeback to Korea, notes Minju Joson in a news analysis Wednesday. The analyst goes on:
    The suppression of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan should be regarded as a token of the ill-will and moral vulgarity of the Samurai clan ignorant of international law and elementary reason of humankind.
    It must not go unnoticed that the suppression of Chongryon by the Japanese reactionaries is timing to coincide with their hostile acts against the DPRK which are getting more malicious than ever before.
    These days they are running about like a headless chicken, openly crying for "sanctions and pressure" upon the DPRK, availing themselves of the U.S. hostile policy toward it. Things have come to such a pass that the Japanese ruling quarters and the group of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan are letting loose an ugly torrent of outbursts urging hasty preparations for taking part in armed sanctions against the DPRK.
    Far from honestly reflecting on and compensating for the past crimes, the Japanese are piling up crimes upon the crimes they have already committed, persisting in the moves against the DPRK and Chongryon.
    These moves can never be tolerated.
    The Japanese reactionaries should stop at once their foolish acts hostile to the DPRK and Chongryon, looking straight into the hatred for Japan rankling deeply in the hearts of the Korean people.

Kim Jong Il Provides Field Guidance to Chongjin

   Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided field guidance to the work related to the revolutionary sites in the city of Chongjin. He acquainted himself in detail about the management of the revolutionary sites and the education through them, going round the statue of President Kim Il Sung in Ranam District, the Malum Revolutionary Site and a room for the preservation and education in slogan-bearing trees.
    He expressed his satisfaction at the fact that the officials and other Party members and working people in the field of the preservation of revolutionary sites have established a perfect system for the eternal preservation of valuable historic relics and spruced up the sites while conducting the effective education in the revolutionary traditions among the people and the servicepersons.
    The anti-Japanese forerunners covered thorny roads, crossing steep mountains and pulling through all sorts of ordeals under the guidance of Kim Il Sung, thus making a history of unprecedented resistance at the cost of their blood and sweat that won the admiration of the world people, he said, adding: The spirit of devotedly defending the leader and the indomitable revolutionary spirit displayed by the anti-Japanese guerrillas are now being inherited by our servicepersons and people.
    Noting that the brilliant revolutionary traditions created by the President in the period of the long-drawn anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle serve as the strong roots of our Party and revolution, he said that the Korean revolution is winning victory after victory because these traditions of Juche are being steadfastly carried forward and developed generation after generation.
    The steady education in the revolutionary traditions conducted by our Party in the past helped our army and people bravely overcome unprecedented difficulties and unswervingly follow the road of revolution, he said, stressing that the strengthened education in the revolutionary traditions provides a fundamental guarantee for the accomplishment of the revolutionary cause pioneered by a leader.
    He advanced important tasks which would serve as guidelines in managing the battle sites and intensifying the education through them, noting that the revolutionary sites are priceless treasures of the revolution and an important educational centre for arming all the Party members and other working people, the servicepersons and youth and children with the revolutionary traditions of our Party.
    As there are in North Hamgyong Province many revolutionary sites, eternal treasures of our Party and people, the province should pay special attention to the preservation and management of those sites, he said.
    He underlined the need for all the Party members and other working people to more thoroughly apply the revolutionary and fighting spirit and life style of the anti-Japanese guerillas to all aspects of work and life in steady response to the Party's slogan "Let us produce, study and live like the anti-Japanese guerrillas did!" and thus work miracles and perform exploits in the general advance of the Songun revolution.
    He was accompanied by Chief Secretary of the North Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK Hong Sok Hyong, Secretary of the WPK Central Committee Kim Ki Nam, Department Director of the WPK Central Committee Pak Nam Gi.

He went round a monument to the on-the-spot instructions given by President Kim Il Sung, a room for preserving revolutionary relics and a room devoted to the history of the university.
    The university which was established on the personal initiative of the President and traversed a glorious path under his wise guidance has developed to be a centre for training dependable technical personnel, he said, noting that the undying revolutionary feats performed by the President will shine long with the history of the university.

    In order to train students as able scientists and technicians required by the IT era it is necessary to establish Juche in education, combine education and practice, steadily improve the contents and quality of education and decisively strengthen the scientific and technological education in particular, he stressed.
    He noted that by training an increasing number of scientists and technicians with a high level of technology in a brief span of time the university should settle issues now arising in making the national economy Juche-oriented, modern and scientific and, at the same time, actively explore new fields of science and technology which are of weighty importance in the development of the mining and metal industries in order to make a positive contribution to the rapid development of the nation's overall science and technology.
    In order to develop science and technology as required by the new century, it is necessary to fully equip students with new knowledge of technology, he said, urging the university to conduct a brisk work to introduce advanced technology in close touch with scientific research institutions and other universities.
    Pointing to the need to steadily expand the ranks of scientists and technicians, who should take the lead in building a scientifically and technologically strong country, in order to provide a scientific and technological guarantee for the high-pitched drive of the Korean people to accelerate the general march of the Songun revolution aimed at building a rich and powerful country, he called for reaching the high eminence of a great prosperous powerful nation by dint of science and technology as early as possible.
    In order to bring about a fresh turn in the training of technical personnel it is necessary to provide ample conditions for education and scientific researches and pay deep attention to this work, he emphasized

CNCDP denuncia aumento armamentista contra RPDC

   Pyongyang, 7 de febrero (ATCC) -- Las fuerzas belicistas del Sur de Corea decidieron comprar de Estados Unidos los cazabombarderos "F-15K" y mas cazas de proxima generacion y se proponen ubicar en lo adelante muchos helicopteros de ataque. @Por otra parte, el imperio planea emplazar a principios del mes en curso una compania de cazabombarderos Stealth "F-22A raptor" en su base aerea en Kadena del departamento de Okinawa de Japon apuntando evidentemente a la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea.
    Tales acciones de aumento de las fuerzas aereas norteamericanas y surcoreanas resultan una gravisima provocacion que lleva la situacion a la confrontacion militar y al borde de la guerra.
    Denuncio el portavoz del Comite Nacional Coreano por la Defensa de la Paz (CNCDP) en su declaracion publicada la vispera y continuo:
    A mediados del mes pasado, EE.UU. cometio otra vez un ejercicio de ataque preventivo contra la RPDC y manda diariamente a sus aviones al espionaje aereo como parte de sus preparativos para agredirla.
    @Esto demuestra que la "paz", el "fin de la guerra" y el "dialogo", de que habla el imperio, no pasan de ser una artimana para enganar a la opinion interna y externa.
    Estas maniobras de los belicistas yanquis y surcoreanos contra el Norte de Corea obligan al ejercito y el pueblo de este a consolidar mas su disuasivo de autodefensa tomando firmemente los fusiles del Songun (priorizacion militar).
    EE.UU. y las autoridades militares surcoreanas deben abstenerse ahora mismo de sus maniobras imprudentes anti-RPDC al saber que estas pueden agudizar la situacion regional, provocar una nueva carrera armamentista y ejercer influencias negativas sobre la solucion pacifica del problema nuclear de la Peninsula Coreana.

Rodong Sinmun Condena a EE.UU. que ampara tergiversacion de historia

   Pyongyang, 7 de febrero (ATCC) -- En estos dias, en las escuelas secundarias de Estados Unidos se usa abiertamente como manual del ingles una novela de historia de Japon que insulta a la nacion coreana tergiversando descaradamente su historia de agresion. Se conocio que este libro circula tambien en algunas escuelas para extranjeros en el Sur de Corea. Esto deviene una intolerable burla a la nacion coreana y un malsano acto encaminado a elogiar la historia injusta atropellando la justicia.
    Asi senala el periodico Rodong Sinmun en un comentario individual del dia 7 y continua:
    Esa novela autobiografica, escrita por la hija de un criminal japones de guerra, quien tenia 11 anos cuando este pais isleno fue derrotado en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, es redactada con datos fraudulentos no apegados a las circunstancias y hechos historicos de aquel entonces.
    EE.UU. conoce tambien que durante mas de 40 anos, Japon ocupo militarmente a Corea y practico la dominacion represiva fascista colonial mas barbara y cruel, sin precedente en la historia. Sin embargo, el imperio usa oficialmente como manual el polemico libro con el proposito de encubrir los crimenes ensangrentados de Japon cometidos en el pasado y utilizarlo como brigada de choque en la agresion y la guerra tras inducir en error a la opinion publica.
    El presente caso vuelve a demostrar fehacientemente que EE.UU. y Japon son complices en la politica hostil y las maniobras de agresion a Corea.
    No se puede perdonar jamas a Japon que insulta a la nacion coreana y tergiversa descaradamente la historia y a EE.UU, que coordina sus acciones con el primero.

Minju Joson revela intencion de Japon de reprimir a Chongryon

   Pyongyang, 7 de febrero (ATCC) -- Los reaccionarios japoneses se entregan mas freneticamente a la represion contra la Chongryon (Asociacion General de Coreanos Residentes en Japon) y los coreanos radicados en su pais con la intencion de empeorar las relaciones con la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea al irritarla con tal acoso a aquellos y tomandolo por pretexto, legalizar la sancion y la presion anti-RPDC para satisfacer luego su ambicion de agredir de nuevo a Corea. Asi senala el periodico Minju Joson en un comentario individual del dia 7 y continua:
    La represion a la Chongryon y los coreanos radicados en Japon muestra la maligna intencion y la bajeza moral del clan de los samurais que no respetan el derecho internacional ni la obligacion mas elemental del ser humano.
    Lo que no se puede pasar por alto es que tales acciones represivas coinciden con las maniobras hostiles a la RPDC que se tornan mas perversas que nunca.
    Los reaccionarios japoneses abogan abiertamente por la "sancion y presion" contra la RPDC adhiriendose a la politica norteamericana de hostilidad a esta. La situacion se empeoro tanto que entre la capa dominante y los compinches del Partido Democratico Liberal de Japon cunden de continuo las voces de que deben apresurar los preparativos para tomar parte en la sancion militar contra la RPDC.
    Estos bandidos islenos abultan mas su expediente criminal con sus maniobras contra la RPDC y la Chongryon en vez de reflexionar y recompensar sinceramente sus crimenes del pasado.
    Tales maniobras no pueden ser toleradas jamas.
    Ellos deben darse clara cuenta del fuerte animo antijapones del pueblo coreano y poner fin inmediatamente a tal alboroto de hostilidad a la RPDC y la Chongryon.
