National Unity Serves as Powerful Weapon to Achieve National Reunification: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- The Korean nation should hold high the banner of national unity to put an end to distrust and confrontation and achieve independent reunification, peace and prosperity, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an article.

It goes on:

It is necessary to put the interests common to the nation before anything else and, on its basis, achieve unity.

Those who truly want the country's reunification and the prosperity of the nation should abandon the narrow-minded conception of confrontation and give priority to and defend the interests of the nation, regardless of individual isms and party interests.

Only when one gives priority to the interests common to the nation and subordinate everything to them from the standpoint of By Our Nation Itself, national unity will be achieved of its own accord.

When all Koreans in the north, the south and abroad visit each other, have contact and strengthen solidarity and alliance on the road for reunification and patriotism, understanding and trust will be deepened and reconciliation and cooperation be promoted.

It is necessary to positively create the atmosphere of the country's reunification by removing all hurdles fostering distrust and confrontation with compatriots and hampering the movement for national reunification.

Intolerable are the acts of hindering the national reconciliation and unity including harmful slandering and reckless war exercises.
