    It consists of the main building and the Simgom pavilion.
    The main building standing on a one-meter high foundation is 11 meters long on the front and 7.8 meters wide on both sides.
    Decorated with different flower patterns, the doors of the temple give the impression of hanging silk fabrics.
    The temple clearly shows the architecture in the period of Ri Dynasty.

Aid Program Applied to Education

   Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- Kim Hyong Jik University of Education has of late developed an education aid program which helps place the training of personnel on a more scientific and comprehensive basis to meet the requirements of the IT era.
    Ri Jin Sop, chief of the Education Information Center of the university, told KCNA:
    The center has developed a remote-controlled lecture system to lift the quality of education to a higher level.
    The education system enables students to listen to lectures, have question and answer and take examinations with the help of computers in the absence of teachers.
    We have produced a program for mathematics, logic and physical imaginary experiments and programs helpful to the extracurricular study of the primary and middle school pupils and to the kindergarten children in learning the mother tongue, counting, sight reading, etc.
    Unlike the previous programs for teaching guidance, these multimedia programs make it possible for the students to prepare and review their lessons, listening to the teacher's explanation again at home.
    It also helps the parents to guide the extracurricular study of their children satisfactorily with a good knowledge of educational words and methods of explanation used at school.

U.S. Escalated Military Provocations Accused

   Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- The United States' recent escalated military provocations and threat to the DPRK come under fire by a signed commentary of Minju Joson Tuesday.
    The U.S. connived at and incited the mean and vulgar acts perpetrated by guards of the U.S. forces side to disturb the performance of the duties by guard personnel of the DPRK side in the area of the Panmunjom conference room. Shortly ago, the U.S. forces side was so foolish as to inform the DPRK side that it would stage Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises from August 18 to 22, far from making an apology and giving assurances against the reoccurrence of similar cases to the guard personnel of the DPRK side who protested against the provocations. Timed to coincide with this, the U.S. announced that it would bring the latest super large Nimitz-class nuclear-powered carrier Ronald Reagan to Pusan Port of south Korea.
    This is a clear proof that the U.S. is keen to deliberately aggravate the situation on the Korean Peninsula, the commentary says, and goes on:
    The U.S. is perpetrating ceaseless military provocations against the DPRK, its dialogue partner, at this crucial time when diplomatic efforts are being made to settle the hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. Its behavior is prompted by its calculation that if its military pressure and threat are escalated to keep pace with its diplomatic dialogue, it can discourage its rival, wrest an important political concession and boost its negotiating position.
    This tells that the way of solving problems by strength still serves as a major lever for implementing the U.S. foreign policy and the American politicians are still obsessed with the outdated conception of confrontation.
    As the DPRK clarified more than once, the policy of strength is not all-powerful and it does not work on the DPRK, in particular.
    Any attempt of the U.S. to settle issues concerning the relations with the DPRK by strength would only lead the situation to catastrophe.
    It is high time the U.S. and other countries concerned behaved themselves now that they are at the crucial phase of the process to settle the deep-rooted hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. and achieve peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula by realizing the denuclearization of the peninsula. It is quite nonsensical for the U.S. to offer a handshake to its dialogue partner, while holding a dagger in its other hand.
    The U.S. should be prudent, cogitating about the grave consequences to be entailed by its irresponsible behavior.

Exploits Performed by Kim Il Sung in Struggle for National Reunification Lauded

   Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung is the sun of the Korean nation who put forward the Juche-oriented idea and line of achieving the reunification of the country and provided an important guiding principle to be always held fast to attain the national unity and settle the issue of the reunification of the country.
    Rodong Sinmun today observes this in a signed article.
    It goes on:
    The President regarded the reunification of the country as the greatest task of the nation from the very day of the country's division and consistently maintained the line of one Korea, the line of reunification.
    The President's idea of national reunification proceeded from the immortal great Juche idea.
    He correctly clarified the cause of the national division and the essence of the issue of reunification from the Juche-oriented viewpoint and stand.
    The President indicated the three charters for national reunification. This was an immortal exploit as he provided the nation with a powerful ideological and theoretical weapon for carrying out its cause of reunification.
    The three principles of national reunification, the 10-point programme for the great unity of the whole nation and the proposal for founding the Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo serve as the three charters for national reunification in which the fundamental principles and ways for national reunification are systematized and comprehensively dealt with in an integral manner on the basis of the immortal Juche idea and the precious experience gained by the President in the course of the struggle for the reunification of the country.
    The President laid down the three principles-- independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity--, thereby providing the Korean nation with the fundamental stand and basic ways for solving the issue of national reunification by its own efforts in line with its will and interests.
    Proving the scientific accuracy and validity of the three charters for national reunification, the article says the struggle to implement the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration precisely means the development in depth of the struggle to carry out the President's Juche-oriented line and policy for national reunification and their successful embodiment.

New Farce Cooked up by S. Korean Defence Security Command

   Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- The Defence Security Command of the south Korean puppet army is now hell-bent on devising a new plot.
    The command arrested Kim Yong Jung, an officer of the puppet army, on July 9 on the charge of "violation of 'National Security Law'". Then it searched his office and house and confiscated books, photographs and articles he used.
    Accusing him of working as a deputy to the south Korean Federation of University Student Councils when he was studying at Kyunghee University, the command is conducting an intensive investigation into him, claiming that he joined the "enemy-benefiting organization," the confiscated books are "enemy-benefiting" ones and he agitated the public to support the Democratic Labor Party.
    In this regard, his family and the General Student Council of Kyunghee University is staging a strong protest after organizing a measure committee for demanding stop to the tricky investigation of the command.

Candlelight Actions Staged in S. Korea

Speakers at the rally accused Lee of getting more frantic in the suppression of candlelight actions far from accepting the demands of the people for the total renegotiations on the American beef import.
    They expressed bitter indignation at the traitor's humiliating diplomacy which emboldens Japan in its wild ambition to grab Tok Islet, declaring that they would struggle to the last against his "government's" unpopular policy and sycophancy and submission.
    Over 2,000 members of the Internet organizations staged a demonstration around the plaza while the rally was underway.
    The number of the demonstrators swelled to tens of thousands after the demo was joined in by the participants of the rally, the members of the Solidarity for the Struggle to Impeach Lee Myung Bak who held a meeting to vow to defend Tok Islet at Thapgol Park and people from all walks of life who turned out in the streets.
    The demonstrators occupied the road and held a rally to denounce the Lee group's crackdown upon the candlelight actions before carrying on the march.
    In front of the head offices of the Yonhap News Agency and Choongang Ilbo and the National Police Office, the participants chided the authorities for their attempt to put media under their control and the conservative media for releasing misinformation and demanded the chief of the National Police Office step down.
    Their action lasted for ten hours till the dawn of the next day despite heavy rain.
    They staged surprise demonstrations in different parts of the city.
    Candlelight actions took place in various parts of the city on July 18, too, in protest against traitor Lee's import of American beef.

Minju Joson condena escalada de provocacion militar de EE.UU.

   Pyongyang, 22 de julio (ATCC) -- En un comentario individual publicado hoy, el rotativo Minju Joson denuncia la escalada de provocacion y amenaza militares de Estados Unidos contra la Republica Popular Democratica de Corea.
    EE.UU. tolera tacitamente y hasta promueve las acciones bajas y viles de los guardias norteamericanos que obstaculizan el cumplimiento de mision de sus contrapartes de la RPDC en el area de reuniones de Phanmunjom, senala el comentarista y prosigue:
    Hace poco, en lugar de pedir disculpas a la parte coreana que protesto dichas acciones y prometerle evitar la repeticion de tales casos, notifico que realizaria del 18 al 22 de agosto los ejercicios militares conjuntos "Ulji Freedom Guardian". Al mismo tiempo, anuncio que entraria en el mar frente a Pusan del Sur de Corea el ultramoderno portaaviones de propulsion nuclear "Ronald Reagan" que pertenece a la categoria "Nimitz" de maxima dimension.
    Esto es una prueba evidente de que el imperio trata de agravar de manera intencional la situacion de la Peninsula Coreana.
    Tales provocaciones militares de EE.UU. contra la RPDC, contraparte del dialogo, coinciden con los esfuerzos diplomaticos por eliminar las relaciones hostiles entre ambos paises.
    Es que EE.UU. piensa que si intensifica la presion y la amenaza militares al paralelo del dialogo diplomatico, podria alcanzar mas "eficiencia" del dialogo doblegando a su contraparte y obligandole hacer importantes concesiones politicas.
    Esto demuestra que el modo de solucionar los problemas con el garrote sigue siendo el favorito de EE.UU. en la realizacion de su politica exterior y que los politicos de este pais no se han liberado todavia de la concepcion de enfrentamiento de la vieja epoca.
    La RPDC afirmo en varias ocasiones que la politica de garrote no es medio omnipotente ni mucho menos en el trato con si misma.
    Si EE.UU. intenta solucionar con la fuerza el problema de relaciones con la RPDC, no traera otro resultado que llevar la situacion a la catastrofe.
    Ahora es cuando EE.UU. y los paises interesados deben portarse correctamente dado que entraron en la importante fase para acabar con las bien arraigadas relaciones hostiles entre la RPDC y EE.UU. y establecer la paz y la estabilidad de la Peninsula Coreana mediante la desnuclearizacion de esta.
    Sobre todo, esta prohibida la accion fuera de costumbre de EE.UU. como pedir el apreton de la mano con un punal en la otra.
    Este pais debe tener cuidado al reflexionar seriamente de las graves consecuencias que emanen de sus acciones irresponsables.
