Nanhutou Meeting, Historic in Anti-Japanese Liberation Struggle
Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- The Nanhutou Meeting, which ran from February 27 through March 3, Juche 25 (1936), marked a milestone in establishing Juche in the Korean people's anti-Japanese national liberation struggle.

At that time, driving forces of the revolution were creditably prepared, with the Korean People's Revolutionary Army (KPRA) grown in strength politically and militarily and the mass foundation expanded on a further basis.

And, the general situation turned in favor of the Korean people's anti-Japanese struggle.

With deep insight into the requirements of the developing revolution, President Kim Il Sung convened the Meeting of Military and Political Cadres of the KPRA in Nanhutou and delivered a report "The Tasks of Communists in the Strengthening and Development of the Anti-Japanese National Liberation Struggle."

In the report, Kim Il Sung set forth a line on advancing the KPRA main unit into the border area and Mt. Paektu area and gradually expanding the armed struggle into the homeland.

He also put forward strategic policies on forming a permanent united front body and effecting a fresh upsurge in the overall Korean revolution centering on the anti-Japanese armed struggle in order to put the movement of the anti-Japanese national united front on a new stage.

The meeting was the one that focused on completely establishing Juche for the first time in the Korean revolution and anti-Japanese national liberation struggle.

In line with the policies, the Korean revolutionaries steadfastly maintained the Juche-based stand in each stage of the revolution and held fast to it as an utmost lifeline of the nation in whatever adversities.

Hence then, the Korean revolution entered into a higher stage.

The banner of Juche, the banner of independence, which was the focus in the Nanhutou Meeting, serves as imperative still for building a thriving socialist nation.
