Year 2013 Witnesses Might of Single-minded Unity
Pyongyang, December 24 (KCNA) -- Juche 102 (2013) is a year of significance, in which the DPRK has registered signal achievements in building a thriving socialist nation with the might of harmonious whole of the leader and people, deterring all sorts of challenges.

From the outset of the year, the U.S. and other hostile forces have run amuck in their moves to stifle the DPRK, taking issue with it over its successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 and 3rd underground nuclear test, to lay hurdles in the advance of the army and people of the DPRK.

On the plea of "threat from someone", the U.S. and the south Korean puppet group have waged one after another joint military drills including Key Resolve and Foal Eagle with strategic nuclear strike means involved, extremely aggravating the situation on the Korean Peninsula, in a bid to block the DPRK's peaceful development and building of economic power.

However, the DPRK servicepersons and people have smash their provocations step by step by dint of the might of single-minded unity under the leadership of the respected Marshal Kim Jong Un to push forward the building a highly civilized socialist nation.

Kim Jong Un saw to it that the Law on the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun was adopted to raise the palace to the status of a grand monument to eternity of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.

This year, Kim Jong Un has always found himself among the servicepersons and people, showing boundless loving care for them.

When making inspection tours of islet defence detachments in the southwestern front, he acquainted himself in detail with the livelihood of servicepersons and their families and took measures for bettering their living conditions.

Deeply moved by his deep loving care, they threw themselves in his arms with tears and even jumped into billows of the sea to wave farewell to him.

Out of ardent yearning for a veteran revolutionary who passed away years ago, he visited the hall "Supreme Commander and Comrades-in-arms" and recalled his meritorious services with deep emotion. When officers and sailors of a unit of the Korean People's Army met heroic deaths while performing their combat duty, he visited their grave and asked the commanding officers of the unit to carve his name on the gravestone to be its owner.

Whenever he receives letters from working people, servicepersons and students, he has sent reply letters of trust to each of them.

This year, the invincible vitality of the single-minded unity has fully been displayed through a series of meetings and celebrations, including the military parade and Pyongyang mass demonstration to mark the 60th anniversary of the Korean people's victory in the Fatherland Liberation War, the 4th Meeting of the KPA Company Commanders and Political Instructors and the 7th Congress of the Korean Children's Union (KCU).

The fatherly loving care shown by Kim Jong Un has moved all the servicepersons and people of the DPRK to be a harmonious whole with the leader and inspired them to work miracles in building a thriving nation.

They have built the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum and the Fatherland Liberation War Martyrs Cemetery, the apartment houses for educators of Kim Il Sung University, the Unha Scientists Street, the Okryu Children's Hospital, the Ryugyong Dental Hospital, Munsu Water Park, Mirim Riding Club, etc. in a short span of time by applying the "speed on Masik Pass".

This year also witnesses the growth of production capabilities in the leading sectors of the national economy and big achievements in all fields of cultural construction including education, public health, sports, literature and art.

The purge of chance and alien elements from the party made the single-minded unity of the revolutionary ranks purer and more consolidated to manifest the transparent will of all the servicepersons and people to uphold Kim Jong Un as the unitary center of unity and leadership.

The DPRK servicepersons and people are fully determined to further strengthen the might of the single-hearted unity, closely rallied around Kim Jong Un and bring earlier the final victory in building a thriving socialist nation.
