Rodong Sinmun Calls for Turning Pyongyang into Center of Songun Culture
Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an editorial calls upon all people to turn out as one to spruce up Pyongyang as the capital of the revolution and center of Songun culture, true to the plan and intention of the Workers' Party of Korea.

It goes on:

Thanks to the energetic leadership of the WPK, many world-class monumental edifices including Changjon Street, Rungna People's Pleasure Park, Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum, Munsu Water Park and Mirim Riding Club were built in different parts of Pyongyang, radically changing the appearance of the capital.

It is the intention of the WPK to spruce up Pyongyang as the center of Songun culture and turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland with it as a model.

It is not a simple business-like matter to successfully spruce up Pyongyang as a center of Songun culture

It is an important political work for demonstrating the dignity and prestige of Songun Korea to spruce up Pyongyang to be impeccable in any aspect in the world.

The WPK's goal for building a highly civilized socialist nation is very high and grandiose and Pyongyang is taking the lead in the efforts to achieve it.

Only when Pyongyang makes a dynamic advance as a model, is it possible to make the flames of the drive for building a highly civilized nation rage across the country.

It is necessary for all Pyongyangites to enshrine Kim Jong Il's patriotism and translate into reality the Party's plan for building a highly civilized nation with clean conscience and sincere efforts, whether they are known or appreciated or not.
