Rodong Sinmun Calls for Adhering to Principle of National Independence for Reunification
| Pyongyang, October 24 (KCNA) -- To invariably maintain the stand of national independence and priority to the nation's interests is a main key to improving the north-south relations and opening up a rosy future of national reunification and prosperity, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a bylined article.
National independence is a fundamental principle to be adhered to in rejecting the aggressive foreign forces and reunifying the country by concerted efforts of the Korean nation, says the article, adding:
The issue of Korea's reunification is a product of the U.S. military occupation of south Korea and its enforcement of the policy of Korea's division after World War II.
It is illogical to call for solving the issue of reunification in reliance on foreign forces because it requires restoring national sovereignty usurped by them.
The Korean nation has vital interests in reunification and it constitutes the driving forces for reunification.
The Koreans should unite under the banner of national independence to discharge their responsibility and role as the driving forces of the reunification.
Deviation from the principle of national independence means collapse of north-south relations.
The reunification is the most vital interests of the Koreans in the north and the south.
Whoever truly wants the reunification should drop narrow-minded confrontation concept and put the nation above all.
The article calls on all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad to reject the aggressive foreign forces and stage a more vigorous struggle for reunifying the country by pooling their efforts.
