DPRK Turns to Be Socialist Power
| Pyongyang, September 9 (KCNA) -- September 9 is the 64th anniversary of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
President Kim Il Sung founded the DPRK on September 9, Juche 37 (1948) and developed it into a socialist power, independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, guided by the Juche idea.
Thanks to the illustrious guidance of Kim Jong Il, who devoted himself to glorifying the President's nation-building feats, the DPRK witnessed a heyday of its development.
On the basis of the revolutionary outlook on the leader, Kim Jong Il took to a new road of building a socialist state and turned the DPRK into a state working to implement Kim Il Sung's idea and cause.
He had the constitution revised to stipulate that Kim Il Sung is the eternal President of the DPRK.
And he steadily strengthened the DPRK government into a powerful political weapon for ensuring the Songun (military-first) politics of the Workers' Party of Korea in all aspects.
He formulated the Songun politics as the basic mode of politics under socialism in keeping with the country's situation and the requirement of the developing revolution in the 1990s.
His Songun politics turned the DPRK into a politico-ideological power in which the party, the army and the people are united as one in mind and purpose and into a world-level military power with invincible military muscle and nuclear deterrent.
Eye-catching successes were registered in space, nuclear fusion, CNC and other scientific and technological fields and a lot of edifices built throughout the country.
Inter-Korean relations gained momentum under the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration and the DPRK's international prestige ran higher.
The feats, performed by Kim Jong Il to put the national dignity and strength on the highest level under the banner of Songun, will remain forever along with prospering Songun Korea.
