Peace Is Most Universal Ideal of Mankind--Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, March 26 (KCNA) -- Peace is the most universal ideal of mankind because this meets the intrinsic requirement of mankind, observes Rodong Sinmun Saturday in a bylined article.

The popular masses who consider independence as their life and soul wish to live and develop independently prompted by their intrinsic need, the article notes, and goes on:

Aggression and war impose immeasurable misfortunes, sufferings, destruction and plunder upon people whereas peace guarantees their progress and development. That is why peace is the common desire and the most universal ideal of the people of all countries who wish to live and develop independently.

The imperialists are now talking about "disarmament" and "detente," but the international situation still remains complicated and tense. There go on in the international arena sharp confrontation and struggle between socialism and imperialism and between progress and reaction.

The reality calls upon the world progressives interested in peace to turn out as one in the struggle to prevent war and defend peace.

Peace never comes of itself but it can be achieved only through a staunch struggle to frustrate the imperialists' moves for aggression and war.

When the world peace-loving people unite close under the banner of independence and peace against imperialism and war and wage a courageous struggle, they can frustrate the imperialists' moves for aggression and war and achieve the human cause of peace.

The Korean people will as ever struggle to realize mankind's common idea of peace in unity with the world progressives.
