News Analyst on Idea of By Our Nation Itself
Pyongyang, January 27 (KCNA) -- Some days ago, the National Defence Commission of the DPRK advanced to south Korea the crucial proposals and an open letter reflecting the demand of the times and all Koreans' will to bring earlier the independent reunification of the country and its peace and prosperity in the spirit of By Our Nation Itself.

By Our Nation Itself is the idea for national independence and unity.

Only when all Koreans reject foreign forces and pool their efforts in the spirit, is it possible to open an avenue for shaping the destiny of the nation and make a fresh progress in the national reunification movement.

It is law governing the development of a nation that the Koreans, who had lived on the same land for thousands of years with one blood, language, history and culture, get reunited with each other.

From olden times, the Korean nation has been known as a resourceful, dignified and highly creative nation. If Korea is reunified, it will emerge a powerful country advanced in political, military, economic and cultural aspects.

It is so shameful to see the nation partitioned and confrontation among the fellow countrymen even in the 21st century when the world is dashing toward the peak of high civilization.

In the history of inter-Korean relations there was an epoch-making event. The north-south summit was held for the first time to provide the nation with a practical landmark for the country's reunification based on the idea of By Our Nation Itself.

The facts show that it is not so impossible to reunify the country and there will be nothing difficult to be settled when all Koreans in the north and the south are willing to dispel each other's distrust originated from the past and go together as the fellow countrymen.

Different ideologies and social systems existing in the north and the south for decades can never be a hurdle to achieving the great unity of the nation.

All members of the Korean nation who love the country and the nation and desire reunification should unite as one under the banner of By Our Nation Itself and destroy the anti-reunification moves of the separatists on the strength of great national unity.

They should mature insufficient conditions purposely and preserve the already-created possibilities and thus usher in an avenue for the improved north-south relations by the united efforts of the nation.
