National Meeting Clarifies DPRK's Principled Stand
Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- A national meeting took place at the April 25 House of Culture here Monday to mark the 55th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's start of the Songun (military-first) leadership.

The meeting clarified the principled stand of the DPRK that it would return immediate counter-strike for provocation and war of justice for war of aggression.

In the early 1990s when the U.S. ran amuck to provoke a war, urging "nuclear inspection", leader Kim Jong Il issued an order on declaring a quasi-state of war to the whole country and saw to it that the DPRK government announced a statement on its withdrawal from NPT.

Eventually, the U.S. could not but sign the DPRK-U.S. Agreed Framework and send its president's letter of guarantee to the DPRK.

In 2012 when the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime kicked off large-scale Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills, Marshal Kim Jong Un made a historic declaration "Counter-strike against provocation, war of justice for national reunification against war of aggression!", thus frustrating the enemies' moves for invasion.

The situation of the Korean peninsula is now inching closer to the brink of war due to the reckless political and military provocations of the south Korean puppet group. Anyhow, the DPRK will surely emerge victorious and achieve the historic cause of national reunification.
