Rodong Sinmun Terms Strong Self-Defensive Power Treasured Sword for Defending Peace
Pyongyang, March 5 (KCNA) -- It is the lesson and truth of history that the sovereignty and vital right of the country and the nation cannot be defended without powerful military power.

Rodong Sinmun on Wednesday says this in an article.

It is an inviolable right for the independent people to defend the sovereignty and peace of the country and firmly safeguard the dignity of the nation with strong self-defensive power, the article says, and goes on:

When one has strong strength by steadily bolstering military power, he can successfully smash any military provocation of the imperialists.

Political independence and economic independence are ensured and guaranteed by strong military power.

Illusion about the imperialists means death and national ruin.

To strengthen defence capabilities is the most important affair of the country and the nation.

The U.S. is steadily reinforcing its aggression forces in the Asia-Pacific region surrounding the Korean peninsula while taking measures for reducing its forces in some other regions of the world. This is aimed to ignite a second Korean war.

The U.S. has driven the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war for more than half a century but dares not to ignite a war on this land. This is because the DPRK has strong self-defensive military power.

The DPRK's war deterrence serves as a powerful treasured sword to safeguard the Korean nation from the aggression of outside forces and defend peace and security on the Korean peninsula.
