DPRK Education Commission Slams Japanese Reactionaries' Crackdown upon Chongryon

Pyongyang, September 22 (KCNA) -- The DPRK Education Commission issued a statement on Friday as regards the fact that the Japanese reactionaries have become undisguised in their vicious politically-motivated crackdown upon the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and Koreans in Japan and their inhuman act.

The statement said:

The Tokyo District Court on Sept. 13 made a decision to unilaterally turn down the demand of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan for application of the tuition-free program to students of the Korean middle and high school in Tokyo.

What merits more serious attention is that this unjust and outrageous decision was made under the manipulation of the Japanese government.

In recent years, the Japanese authorities issued orders that local self-governing bodies should exclude Korean schools from the objects of applying tuition-free program. When the Osaka District Court issued judgment favorable to the Korean schools far from their stand in July, they betrayed their narrow intention to put pressure upon the judge who gave a decision in favor of the Korean schools.

Not content with this, they have got hell-bent on the malignant slander against the DPRK, Chongryon and national education through IT means including websites, intentionally building public opinion against application of the tuition-free program to Korean schools.

The DPRK Education Commission brands the illegal fascist action committed by the Japanese reactionaries as vicious hostility to trample down the rights of democratic national education of the Koreans in Japan and stifle Chongryon, a dignified overseas citizen organization of the DPRK, the statement said, adding:

The Koreans in Japan are descendants of those who were forcibly dragged to Japan by the Japanese imperialists and the Korean schools in which their descendants study are the legitimate national educational organs recognized by the Japanese authorities.

This being a hard reality, the Japanese reactionaries have refused to apply the tuition-free program for high schools upon Korean schools among foreign schools. This is a revelation of deep-rooted sinister intention to frustrate the national education of the Koreans in Japan and a hysteric action of those who become displeased with the inexhaustible might of the DPRK making long strides under the banner of Songun.

They, taken aback by the fact that the DPRK is advancing toward the terminal of accomplishing the state nuclear force despite the heinous sanctions and blockade of the U.S. and its vassal forces, are now making desperate efforts to crack down upon Chongryon and Koreans in Japan.

They should stop at once discriminating the national education of Koreans in Japan and take full responsibility for all consequences arising therefrom. -0-

Kim Jong Un answers to 'dotard' Trump's first UN speech [Full Statement]...

Reply to "Socialist Fight " article " Defend north Korea against warmongering Trump "

                        22 September 2017
Recently the website "Socialist Fight "  of the Liasion Committee For the Fourth International ( Trotskyite)  carried an article "Defend North Korea against warmongering Trump "  which exposed the threats against People's Korea by the fascistic Trump regime of US imperialism . The article 
and has some positive material such as quoting the words of Marshal KIM JONG UN at the April 15th military parade in 2012 when he pointed out that the DPRK would never be blackmailed by US imperialism . The article does point that the DPRK was compelled to develop a nuclear deterrent. However whilst claiming to defend People's Korea , article it then rehashes extreme imperialist propaganda against People's Korea.
 The article starts off but saying it defends the DPRK , though  throughout the article it does not refer to People's Korea by its correct title The Democratic People's Republic of Korea  or DPRK for short but insists on using the shorthand of the imperialist media  calling the DPRK 'North Korea' (it might be slightly pedantic here to point out as some that in actually fact there is no such countries as 'North Korea' and 'South Korea' , just as there are no actual countries called ' Southern Ireland ' and 'Northern Ireland' ) .
    The article correctly points that the "  it is a workers’ state in the sense that there are no capitalists there and production is for need and not for the profits of individual capitalist enterprises. Therefore, despite its isolation, it does plan its economy relatively efficiently and there are no unemployed, homeless or beggars, such are seen in even the most advanced capitalist countries.  There is free medical care, education, and housing and there are no taxes. Literacy is 100%, compared to 54% in Pakistan and 63% India." This is indeed true and cannot be disputed . However bizzarely the article
calls the DPRK " a poor, semi-colonial nation " !!!??? .This is a slur on the DPRK which is a country of stout independence , something that is acknowledged by friend and foe alike including ex Tory Premier John Major who said that the DPRK has 'undiluted sovereignty . There is not a single foreign soldier stationed anywhere in the DPRK .The DPRK is no one's colony , unlike south Korea it is not a colony of the US and Japan and was always independent of the USSR and China. The DPRK is independent of China and has spoken out openly against Chinese big power-chauvinism .Some on the British left, dogmatists and sectarians try to  wrongly portray the DPRK as an extension of the USSR and China , such thinking not is a slur on the DPRK but does a grave disservice to the movement for solidarity with People's Korea . Moreover the DPRK has advanced socialist system based on Juche and a self-reliant independent national economy  which is enabling the DPRK to smash the US imperialist sanctions. Does the author of the article realise that saying that the DPRK is both a 'worker's state' and yet a 'poor ,semi-colonial nation' is deeply contradictory .
 As the article goes on it becomes worse and worse actually recycling imperialist slanders and misinformation about People's Korea. We find it  very odd that a socialist and anti-imperialist should draw so heavily on bourgeois and imperialist sources!
    The old 'famine' ,myth beloved of the bourgeois media and repeated ad infinitum , surfaces in the Socialist Fight article .To refute the famine myth once again  we point out that visiting the DPRK in 1996 although the situation was very difficult and the Korean guides were very frank with us about the massive challenges facing the DPRK , we saw nothing that would indicate an actual famine on the scale of what happened in some African countries. There was no one starving or begging for food. The claims about famine are blown out of the water by population figure: In October 2008 the DPRK population had grown to  over 24 million. This exceeded the growth rate in the population predicted by some experts. In 1996 the DPRK's population stood at 22.1 million so the population has increased by 2 million or 10%.If there had been a famine or mass starvation such an increase would not have been possible-it would have been static or even decreased. Some s claim that 10% of the DPRK's population died, if this was true that then the population would have decreased by 2 million and not increase by 2 million.
  The Socialist Fight article also draws heavily on materials from the pro-imperialist , CIA controlled sponsored scab outfit Amnesty International (AI). AI has never been a friend of socialist countries, and anti-imperialist movements .It was exposed sometime ago as being funded by the CIA . Today
AI produces glossy booklets , employs staff on high salaries and runs big advertising campaigns. Where is all the money coming from for all this? AI back in 1991 was used by a PR firm working for the US government to spread the false story about babies in incubators being killed by Iraqi soldiers which was used as a pretext for the 1991 Gulf War. The article also repeats nonsense about a 'total control zone ' in the DPRK . Much of this has committed from the discredited 'defector ' Shin Dong Hyuk who later admitted to lying and was revealed by the DPRK media to be convicted rapist . He now lives in luxury in south Korea and the US.
   The article even speaks of 'concentration camps' !!!. There are no concentration camps in the DPRK . This is again repeating imperialist propaganda and trying to equate the DPRK with the Nazis  ! The imperialists claim that there are hundreds of thousands of people held in camps in the DPRK , such camps would have to be massive and with a huge number of guards but I did not see such a thing in the DPRK countryside. Moreover the DPRK is very peaceful and calm you rarely see emergency vehicles rushing through the busy streets. If it what the imperialists say about "human rights " and " forced labour camps " in the DPRK was true, then you would say police or security personnel on the streets arresting many people and putting them in lorries to go to "labour camps " or "concentrations camps " but I saw no such thing happen. I did not see heavily armed police on the streets that you sometimes encounter in London , either on the streets or at railway stations or at airports . Indeed I was able to go for a walk near the Mansudae Assemby Hall the home of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly  , the highest organ of legislative power in the DPRK and roughly equivalent to the parliament. Now in London the area around parliament is a restricted area where movement is controlled and armed police units patrol. However  in Pyongyang I saw no police or security personnel in the area surrounding the Mansudae Assembly hall. Of course the DPRK is a stable and harmonious unified society based on single hearted unity so there is no terrorism and no riots. In the DPRK there is unity between the  armed forces and civilians  so people do not fear or despise the armed forces.
   The also draws heavily on the Wikipedia which is another very dodgy source as much of the material in the Wikipedia on the DPRK is written by the south Korean fascist puppets  and is basically false. The Wikipedia itself was set up by Jimmy Wales , a US millionaire,  who is a supporter of neo-liberalism and conservatism . The article quotes from the Wikipedia the '10 principles ' that were supposedly set out in 1967, however the original of these cannot be found in English language DPRK texts .
  The author quotes imperialist statistics on infant mortality in the DPRK . In fact by 1991 this had fallen to 9.2 per 1,000 , so that figure quoted of 23 per 1,000 for the present day cannot be true. In fact the DPRK reduced infant morality from 204 per 1000 in 1944 to 9.2 in 1991 , a reduction of
95.5 per cent in the space of 46 years an outstanding achievement.
  The Juche idea and the socialist system of the DPRK  is criminally slandered by the author. How on earth can the most advanced idea of humanity , the most revolutionary communist idea of all time be described by the author of the Socialist Fight article as being a ' medieval doctrine ', this is ridiculous
and truly idiotic ! . The great leader President KIM IL SUNG defined Juche as being  'in a nutshell, the idea of Juche means that the masters of the revolution and the work of construction are the masses of the people and that they are also the motive force of the revolution and the work of construction. In other words, one is responsible for one's own destiny and one has also the capacity for hewing out one's own destiny"
  How can this be medieval ? Furthermore  Chairman KIM JONG IL wrote 'The Juche idea is a new philosophical thought which centres on man...The Juche idea defined man as the master who dominates the world, not merely as part of it, and thus established a new world outlook which, unlike preceding ones, regards the world and its changes and progress with man, its master,at the centre. The Juche viewpoint and stand on the world with man in the central place provide a sure guarantee for the independent and creative cognitional activities and practice of man who transforms the world and shapes his destiny...The Juche idea, the revolutionary world outlook representing a new era in history, the Juche age, is rightly leading the onward movement of mankind aspiring to independence and sovereignty, socialism and communism, while sweeping away all the reactionary and counter-revolutionary currents of thoughts. 
It marked a new, higher stage in the development of the working-class revolutionary theory. Therein lies another historic contribution of the Juche idea to the revolutionary cause of the working class and the cause of liberation of humanity "
   There are over 1,000 Juche Idea Study Groups in the world and he 82 friendship plaques from foreign supporters and Juche study groups on the Tower of the Juche Idea indicates that Juche has a large following across the world. Indeed, in every major continent there are groups dedicated to studying Juche. Since 1976 the DPRK has organised international seminars on Juche. The great Juche idea is also applicable to all counties as it teaches that every people should be independent and masters of their own destiny. President KIM IL SUNG  showed the way for the peoples of the capitalist countries, socialist countries and third world countries to independence. Indeed, the Juche idea reflects the aspirations of the peoples of all countries for independence. In addition, the revolutionary activities and teachings of KIM IL SUNG  have influenced socialist leaders throughout the world. We would suggest that the author of the Socialist Fight article actually reads the works of President KIM IL SUNG , Chairman KIM JONG IL and Marshal KIM JONG UN  and visits the DPRK to learn what Juche means rather than reading bourgeois dross on the Wikipedia !
  The articles prattles a lot about 'bureaucracy' but most surprisingly the liquidation of the counter-revolutionary traitor Jang Song Thaek is damned by the article.. In 2013 during an enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the Workers' Party of Korea, the crimes of the traitor Jang Song Thaek were laid bare. Affected by the capitalist way of living, Jang committed irregularities and corruption which lead to a dissolute and depraved life. He used drugs and squandered foreign currency at casinos while he was receiving medical treatment in a foreign country under the care of the party. He also stole at least 4.6 million Euro of DPRK state money and squandered it in one year.  The special military tribunal of the Ministry of State Security found Jang guilty of corruption and attempting to overthrow the state. He was sentenced to death for his crimes.   . How on earth can you support such a corrupt character who was a puppet of Chinese revisionism and US imperialism ? Ordinary working people in the DPRK demanded the purge and execution of Jang , steelworkers even said that he should be thrown in the furnace for his treachery.It is ironic and contradictory to fume about bureaucracy but
then condemn the DPRK for taking successful measures against bureaucracy. In my view getting
rid of the counter-revolutionary factionalist gang in 2012 was probably the best thing the DPRK did.
  All in all the article is full of self-contradiction and does not defend People's Korea but repeats imperialist and bourgeois slanders against People's Korea  and even slanders the guiding idea and social system of People's Korea  !
 It is vital to broad a vigorous solidarity movement with People's Korea against US imperialism
and world imperialism. Surely one of the crucial aspects of this should be to defend the guiding ideology of the DPRK , the Juche Idea and the Songun Idea (army first ) idea and the socialist system of the DPRK from attack and slander , because attacks on Juche and the people-centred socialist system are part and parcel of the imperialist demonisation and de legitimatisation of  People's Korea .
  In the UK it is the UK Korean Friendship Association , the Juche Idea Study Group of England  and the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK that defend uphold the Juche Idea and the Songun Idea. UK KFA is proud to do what is says on the tin and 'Defend the D P R Korea " with
no ifs or buts . Do not be fooled by fake friends of the DPRK , join us if you agree with us.

In Memory of Madame KIM JONG SUK, the great Mother of Korea, anti-Japanese revolutionary war heroine  and indomitable communist revolutionary figther who passed away 68 years ago on the 22nd of September 1949




                                22th of September Juche 106(2017)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE), , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification of Korea (BSCPRKP) issued a statement declaring their
support for the statement issued by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN , chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, with regard to the recent
speech made by Trump, US president , at the UN General Assembly .
   Our organisations fully, totally and unconditionally support the statement made by dear respected
Marshal KIM JONG UN .
   The speech made by Trump at the UN General Assembly has shocked the world. To say it is an affront to the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK is an understatement . The speech was a virtual declaration of war.Things have come to a very sad situation when a Hitler like maniac can get up and advocate the genocide of an entire people at the UN !
   Trump's speech went far beyond simply arguing for 'regime change' and the overthrow of he 
Supreme leadership of the DPRK , though this would have been bad in itself but actually stated he
would destroy a sovereign state.
  Trump a useless parasite who has never done a day's real work in his life dared to insult the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership that works day and night for the people.
  The speech of Trump was virtually a declaration of war against People's Korea  and it will be considered a such.
  Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is a leader who says what he means and means what he says. He is a plain speaking , straight talking leader who does not take nonsense . Respected Marshal
KIM JONG UN is a great leader who defends the independence of his country like no other leader
 We applaud the words ' mentally deranged U.S. dotard' and we know that these words will be applauded by millions of people throughout the world who hate US imperialism and desire independence . These words are the truth because that is what Trump is , a mentally deranged US dotard , a Yankee halfwit , a bigger idiot than Reagan and Bush put together and multiplied by a 100.
Trump is unfitted to be the supreme commander and President of the US , the biggest nuclear power in the world.
  We support dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN's declaration that he will make Trump pay dearly for his rude nonsense calling for the destruction of the DPRK  !
 We also call for a worldwide anti-US, anti-imperialist movement in support of respected Marshal
KIM JONG UN's statement and in support of the independence of People's Korea !

U.S. Chief Executive's Remarks Are Heinous

Pyongyang, September 22 (KCNA) -- U.S. President Trump made a keynote speech at the 72nd UN General Assembly.
In his speech he spit out unprecedented rubbish that he would wipe a country of 25 million people off the map, not just "regime change".
"… if the U.S. is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said.
This thrice-cursed sophism made by the mentally deranged hooligan has shocked the whole world.
The Washington Post said the recent remarks made by Trump was a "prepared speech in which his words were undoubtedly pored over extensively beforehand", adding that "fire and fury" could be interpreted as a threat to simply remove Kim and his government; "totally destroy North Korea" seems to be a signal to the North Korean people that they, too, could face annihilation alongside their government leaders. "It sounds a lot like Trump is threatening a completely unprecedented effort to wipe out an entire nation, whether through nuclear weapons or more conventional means. It's a remarkably big statement, and the White House will undoubtedly be asked to clarify.
The paper also derided the words of "totally destroying the north" as the one "full of childish curses rather than strong expression", saying "the speech made by the U.S. president will be remembered as one of speeches by boss of gangsters".
The CNN quoted a senior UN diplomat as saying there was shock in the room when Trump threatened destruction, adding that Trump's statement to the north goes beyond reason like his words "fire and fury".
The British newspaper Guardian said "what did we learn from Trump's UN speech? he'll never change", adding his colorful language might even be funny if it weren't for the fact that Trump controls a nuclear arsenal powerful enough to annihilate humanity several times over.
The British newspaper the Financial Times said the UN has never heard such a speech as what was made by Trump and that no one out of the successive U.S. presidents said such words inciting such a conflict with the rival.
Even U.S. political figures denounced the wild remarks of Trump.
Foreign news reported that Trump's speech went so much beyond the expectations that even the presidential chief of staff of White House John Kelly was seen bewildered with his head in his hands when he was listening to the speech in field.
The U.S. political media POLITICO commented that Trump's speech is severance from the past 70 years during when the successive U.S. presidents have tried to take the initiative of international alliance to cope with threats, adding that the U.S. international influence would sustain another strike if policy is not set forth along with the speech.
Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Elisabeth Wallstrom denounced Trump's speech as "nationalist speech", noting it was "in breach of the UN charter."
She added that Trump's speech that "he would destroy north Korea is a protest against a country and it is not what should be said to people gathered here."
First Vice-Chairman of the International Affairs Committee of the Russian Federation Council Vladimir Zyavarov when interviewed by ITAR-TASS said that Americans are mistaken if they think they would not suffer damage in case they provoke a war against the DPRK, adding that anyway, the DPRK borders the world's two nuclear powers China and Russia, and if something happens, these countries will be inveigled into the disputes, to our regret.
Gennadi Zyuganov, leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, stressed as follows:
Trump's remarks are a challenge to whole world. It is because any disputes on the Korean peninsula would inevitably inveigle neighbors Russia, China and Japan and the U.S.
Trump is bluffing that he would settle everything at a go while likening the DPRK to a rogue state but I am certain that nothing will be solved here. This is completely foolish nonsense.
From military point of view, Americans' remarks are an open provocation.
German Chancellor Merkel said that military solution is absolutely unsuitable and former U.S. State Secretary Hillary Clinton denounced Trump's speech as very dark and dangerous one.
U.S. Congressmen expressed deep concerns over the wild words of Trump.
Senator Diane Feinstein, a Democratic critic of Trump's, said "Trump's bombastic threat to destroy North Korea … are severe disappointments," adding "Today, the president used it as a stage to threaten war."
Ted, member of the House of Representatives of the Democratic Party, recalling Trump's remarks said that "he threatened he would destroy other country", adding problem is not whether the U.S. can destroy north Korea but whether he can cope with south Korea, Japan and even Guam being destroyed and with thousands of Americans being sacrificed in the course of doing so.
The world media comment his remarks as a dangerous provocation that can provoke a war, something that can be uttered by the boss of gangsters rather than by a politician.
The international community is raising voices of denunciation, being deeply concerned about such outbursts and wild words as "total destruction" of a sovereign state, not just "overturn of social system" and "regime change". -0-

Chinese Media's Shameless and Impudent Acts Blasted

Pyongyang, September 22 (KCNA) -- Following is the full text of a signed article "Rude Deed of Shameless Media":

Some media of China are seriously hurting the line and social system of the DPRK and threatening the DPRK at a time when the U.S. and its vassal forces have reached the extremes in their frantic moves to impose sanctions and pressure on the DPRK over the DPRK's just exercise of its right to self-defence.

The Chinese People's Daily and its sister paper Huan Qui Shibao and websites People's Network and Huan Qui Network insulted the DPRK, saying "it pricked its own eyes with its own hands" and "it was a noose put around its own neck" while shunning the legitimacy of the DPRK's possession of nuclear weapons and the self-defensive nature of its measure for bolstering the national nuclear force. Not content with this, they said "it would face the fate of sun setting in the western sky" and set forth such presumptuous "initiatives" as "international solidarity" and organization of "forum international think-tank" for settling the nuclear issue of the DPRK.

As for the "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK, the dirty excrement of the reactionaries of history, they spouted such extremely ill-boding words that China "did not target the normal living of the people in the DPRK" and "DPRK is fortunate to have China as its neighbor".

In a word, their comment meant that the small country DPRK put itself and the international community as a whole at a "peril" for standing against "the world's superpower" with the manufacture of nuclear weapons, and that there is nothing to be displeased over the step of decrease of food taken to make the DPRK, "chief culprit rendering the world restless" get exhausted.

This can not be construed otherwise than an act of the blind whose eyes are open and the deaf and dumb who look outwardly normal as they can not understand the essence of the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula nor can they properly see, hear and express the changed international political situation in the wake of the DPRK's possession of nuclear weapons.

Moreover, the news media openly faulted the line of other sovereign state. This makes one think that it was quite natural for them to lose trust from people of their own country and the international community to not a small measure due to their self-complacence and prejudice.

Even though they can be pretexts to shield their clumsy plight of getting dragged on by the U.S., we can not connive at their acts of dare hurting the dignity of the state and people of the DPRK.

As was already emphasized, the DPRK's access to a nuclear deterrence was pursuant to the strategic decision of the party and state of the DPRK to fundamentally terminate the decade-old U.S. hideous hostile policy toward the DPRK and nuclear threat and blackmail, and this finally led the DPRK to possess H-bomb for ICBM, the absolute weapons on the earth.

Even at this moment, the U.S. hatches sinister scheme of provoking a nuclear war and is holding dangerous secret war confab after introducing to the Korean peninsula and the region huge strategic hardware enough to fight several wars while openly calling for "totally destroying north Korea".

History and reality teach a serious lesson that only powerful strength can defend oneself from the tyrannical nuclear weapons.

The military attack on Syria committed in the eyes of neighboring big powers including China in April last showed the world in practice what the "peace by strength" touted by the Trump administration meant, and Beijing might have felt not a great deal.

What matters is that how can The Chinese People's Daily and media under it which had trumpeted about "sovereignty and independence in the road for social progress" and "peculiar sovereign position" spout principle-less nonsense that are mocked even by Trump's twitters.

If they are not novice reptile media devoid of insight and their own view to the international politics, they should be well aware of themselves before commenting on others.

Now heard from DPRK-China border are reflective complaints on who became hopeless as the consequences of the U.S.-manipulated "sanctions resolution" on the DPRK.

A Chinese businessman who was left empty-handed in the trade with the DPRK said: I don't know politics and diplomacy. But one thing is clear. Korea, not a big country, is talking what it wants to say and does what it wants to do while standing against the U.S., the superpower. It's hard to understand what's wrong with China. Lots of minor businesses in three northeastern provinces of China are suffering huge losses. Then why does it kowtow to the U.S. I really feel shame. I am more afraid of the corruption of the state than the corruption of people.

This is the public mindset.

Literally speaking, media styling themselves speaking for the people had better use their heads to read the people's mindset and speak for the people of their own country, rather than admonishing others.

If it is the organ of a party styling itself the initiator of "principle of non-interference" outside, it can stand with dignity before the world people only when it maintains this principle.

As for "good neighbor", the DPRK has much more to say about it.

When the Soviet Union and the U.S. and the whole world released denunciation statements over the first nuclear test carried out by China in the 1960s, it was only the DPRK, good neighbor, which actively supported it and encouraged it through government statement.

When high-spirited White House owner set out on his trip to China, its neighbor DPRK released a worldwide aphorism that Nixon's China visit was not a march of victor but a trip of loser with a white flag in his hand, thus helping the big neighbor save shame and maintain its face. China might know this sincere neighbor more than itself.

Then why is it going under the armpit of the U.S. while holding a white flag to blame the good neighbor.

Nixon, suffering from disease from wrath by the unusual principle and resourcefulness of the DPRK which stopped the historical disgrace which could have been a shame on the socialist camp, had called for a "war with China" till the last day of his leave from office. This is quite alike the act of Trump who is teasing Beijing, caught in the trap of "world economy", under the pretext of "nuclear issue of Korea". It is seen by the whole world.

The DPRK knows which way it should follow.

The DPRK does not have to lie on its face just as China did when it visited the U.S. and there is no need for China to force the DPRK to learn it.

History proved that the path covered by the DPRK for nearly one century has been an un-trodden path through thick and thin but it was far-sighted and promising option as this helped the country escape the tragic events witnessed in Eastern Europe which was mentally disarmed in the face of the imperialists, and as this helped others to evade clumsy situation of not breathing properly being caught in the noose of dollars.

The Korean people have learned the might of unity and happiness even though they did not lead a plentiful life and they have the perspective and generosity of looking far into the dawning tomorrow in the darkness.

As for the fortune of the DPRK, its people are not such ignorant people who foresee their fortune by money or divination sign.

Though small in territory and population, the people of the DPRK have such fortune which no other country and nation has and therefore, we feel sorrowful at the neighbor seeking money only without its own soul even though it is big.

Lots of countries and peoples of the world are keenly realizing where lies the genuine fortune of each country and nation while viewing the admirable DPRK greeting the great change in its destiny and standing against the "world's only superpower" while taking the lead of the struggle to defend peace of the region and the world, although it had its territory totally usurped by big powers keen on scramble and was trampled down under them in the past because it was weak in strength.

Truly frustrating is the perspective of the political hangers-on who are just satisfied to have their rice bowl safe even though the neighbor is thieved while considering Korea just as a front yard and "buffer zone" for holding back the invasion by robber.

It is the U.S. and other dishonest and hostile forces who are taking issue this or that way while doggedly shunning the reality of Juche Korea.

The light act of China's media openly resorting to interference in the internal affairs of other country, being oblivious of the mission of media which should regard objectivity and impartiality as their lifeline, would be little short of driving a wedge between the two countries and the two peoples, pursuant to the U.S.

The party organ of the socialist country bragging long history denounced socialist Korea so maliciously in collusion with the imperialists. This leaves us think that whether they can be entitled to enter the coming party conference hall only when they register the dirty reptile records of betraying the peoples of the two countries.

The Chinese media had better watch how the DPRK smashes the hostile forces' arrogance and high-handed practices, rather than kowtowing to the ignorant acts of the Trump administration.

They had better mind their own businesses, before impudently pointing an accusing finger at others.

Korea is a land of rising sun as its name implies and one has to turn one's head toward China to watch the sun setting in the western sky in Korea. -0-
