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 joint statement in support of the press statement of  Choe Hui Chol, vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea made on the 16th of November;
 Turnbull the Australian Prime Minister gravely slandered People's Korea while visiting Asia and called for more sanctions against the DPRK . Turnbull is well known as an old reactionary and anti-popular leader. Turnbull made deeply insulting remarks about the DPRK which were quite unbecoming for his office . Basically Turnbull has seeked to deny the reality and existence of the DPRK and 'de- legitimise '  it . Turnbull is simply a puppet of and a sycophant of Trump and US imperialism  and his remarks are similar to the outburst of Trump a the UN .
   Australia has participated in anti-DPRK nuclear war exercises with US forces. In the past Australia
disgraced itself by acting as a puppet and a satellite state of the US by dispatching its armed forces to participate in the war against the Korean people in the 1950s. Australia assisted US imperialism in holding back the liberation , independence and reunification of Korea.
  As Choe Hui Chol,  DPRK vice-minister of Foreign Affairs correctly says  "  The Australian prime minister had better mind the business within his own country rather than being a marionette of the U.S. "
 Australia should stop its anti-DPRK moves , stop interfering in Korean affairs and stop following the US hostile anti-DPRK policy.

DPRK Vice FM Blasts Australian PM's Insult to DPRK


Pyongyang, November 16 (KCNA) -- Choe Hui Chol, vice-minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, issued the following press statement on Nov. 16:

Lately, the Australian prime minister has been continuously letting out a stream of invective against the DPRK while zealously following the U.S. in the extreme sanctions and pressure on the DPRK.

At a press interview held in Hong Kong of China on November 12, he talked nonsense that "north Korea is one of the most crafty and sophisticated criminal states that raise funds for nuclear program through illicit means including weapon and drug trafficking and cyber-crime, and a criminal organization operating under the name of a state." And he appealed to all countries attending the East Asia Summit to "intensify economic and financial sanctions against north Korea" while claiming that "united and collective pressure would bring north Korea back to its senses."

His impudent condemnation of the dignified DPRK as a criminal organization is exactly in line with the reckless threat made by Trump on the UN podium to totally destroy our country, and it constitutes a wanton infringement upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and an intolerable insult to its people.

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth is the way I ought to respond to the Australian prime minister who hurled unreasonable abuse at the DPRK in defiance of international norms of etiquette and courtesy.

The Australian prime minister should fully understand that uttering paradoxical remarks at different places and dispatching armed forces to the U.S. nuclear war drills targeting the DPRK are only adding to the sins that Australia had committed against the Korean people during the Korean War.

For the prime minister of a country he is, he should deliberate whether or not his baseless condemnation of the DPRK and impetuous participation in the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure against the DPRK would do any good to the interests and desire of his people cherishing peace and justice, and seriously ponder over the consequences that an inappropriate remark he makes could bring to his own political career.

Now in Australia there are strong voices of condemnation that the present government is providing benefits to the U.S. supremacy and arms sale while bringing great danger to Australia by pursuing the U.S. foreign policy like a "sleepwalker", and they are demanding that the prime minister clarify his stand to refrain from joining the U.S. aggressive and provocative military maneuvers and that the prerogative to use armed forces on the Korean peninsula be transferred to the Federal Parliament.

It is not surprising that the prime minister is being ridiculed in the neighboring countries as "a paper cat hiding behind a paper tiger labelled Trump", "Trump's mouthpiece" and "a second class Western citizen" who would be shy to be the second in groveling to Trump.

The Australian prime minister should give up the daydream that some sort of "unity" and "pressure" could check the advance of the DPRK which is marching forward under the high banner of self-development, and he should watch his mouth in light of the brilliant reality and the invincible might of the DPRK.

The Australian prime minister had better mind the business within his own country rather than being a marionette of the U.S. -0

Letter to UN Secretary-General


Pyongyang, November 16 (KCNA) -- The permanent representative of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to the United Nations sent a letter to the UN secretary-general on Nov. 13 in denunciation of the U.S. nuclear war exercises aiming at the DPRK.

After deploying three nuclear powered aircraft carrier strike groups in waters around the Korean peninsula, the U.S. staged another joint military exercises with south Korea. And it reactivated round-the-clock emergency sortie system of nuclear capable strategic bomber B-52, which existed during the Cold War era, and is maintaining a surprise strike posture with frequent flight of B-1B and B-2 formations to the air space of south Korea.

Recalling the facts, the letter said:

The U.S. flung the words of "total destruction" of a sovereign state at the UN General Assembly, the world largest official forum of diplomacy, and is now running amok for war exercises by introducing nuclear war equipment in and around the Korean peninsula. This goes to prove that the U.S. itself is a chief offender of the escalation of tension and undermining of peace.

The large scale nuclear war exercises and blackmails, which the U.S. have staged for a whole year without a break in collaboration with its followers to stifle the DPRK, make one conclude that the option we have taken was quite right and that we should go along the way to the last.

Despite this fact, the UN Security Council, whose mission is to ensure the world peace and security, keeps turning a blind eye to the nuclear war exercises of the U.S. which is hell-bent on bringing a catastrophic disaster to humanity, thereby giving rise to a serious concern on the double standard of the UNSC.

In this regard, in view of the world justice and impartiality, we kindly request the secretary-general to give your viewpoints as to the following questions:

Question 1; Do the nuclear war exercises in and around the Korean peninsula being undertaken by the U.S. for a whole year without a break at all targeting a sovereign state conform to the purpose of the UN Charter, which is to maintain peace and security?

Question 2; Since the DPRK and the U.S. are legally in a state of armistice as belligerent parties as yet, does the questioning in the UNSC of the self-defensive measures of one belligerent party, the DPRK only as a "threat", ignoring the nuclear war provocative acts of the other belligerent party, the U.S., conform to the principle of sovereign equality of the UN Charter?

We would like to politely request the secretary-general to give right answers to the questions raised in conformity with the requirement of the UN Charter and the mission of the UN Secretariat who is holding the impartiality and independence as its lifeline. At the same time we ask the secretary-general to bring to the attention of the UNSC under Article 99 of the UN Charter, regarding the danger being posed by the U.S. nuclear war exercises which are clearly threats to international peace and security. -0-

Press Statement of DPRK Permanent Mission to UN


Pyongyang, November 15 (KCNA) -- The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations issued the following press statement with regard to the forced adoption of the "draft resolution" on human rights situation in the DPRK (A/C.3/72/L.40) submitted by the European Union (EU) and Japan at the Third Committee of the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly on November 14, 2017:

The DPRK Permanent Mission to the UN categorically rejects the "resolution".

The "resolution" represents a product of the political and military confrontation, plot and conspiracy of the United States and other forces hostile to the DPRK as well as the extreme manifestation of politicization, selectivity and double standards of human rights. It has nothing to do for genuine promotion and protection of human rights.

It repeats the contents of the "report of COI" which are full of lies, fabrications, plots and frauds concocted by the U.S. and other hostile forces through "defectors" who are criminals and human scum. It also pursues their heinous political purpose to overthrow our state and social system.

Now the U.S. and its vassal forces are more desperate in their "human rights" racket against the DPRK, while resorting to the unprecedented military threat and blackmail, sanctions and pressure against it.

Recently in the U.S., a "report on human rights abuses in north Korea and inspection of them" was submitted to the Congress. The 3rd "sanctions step for tackling the human rights performance in north Korea" was made public to include institutions and individuals of the DPRK in the "special sanctions list". The U.S. Congress orchestrated the anti-DPRK farce by letting betes noires make "testimonies" about "human rights abuses" in the DPRK at a hearing of the International Relations Committee of the Lower House.

The sanctions and pressure of the U.S. have the extremely vicious and barbarous phase in its attempt to violate the rights to survival and development of our State and people, destroy the modern civilization and turn the world back into a dark mediaeval age.

The indiscriminate blockade is being imposed to the DPRK under the pretext of implementing the "sanctions resolutions" cutting the delivery of medical equipment and medicine for treatment and health of patients, disabled persons and mothers and children and creating obstacles to the production of educational equipment and nutritional food for children.

It also causes the abnormal situation whereby most of the aid activities of international humanitarian organizations which worked in the DPRK for over 20 years have been frustrated or reduced.

These barbaric sanctions of the U.S. are a despicable violation of human rights and a genocide infringing upon the humanitarian laws and international human rights instruments including the Convention on the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Convention on the Rights of Child, Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

South Korea, which takes the lead in the U.S.-led anti-DPRK "human rights" racket, as well as the EU and Japan, the main sponsors of the draft "resolution" are actually not qualified to talk about others' human rights issues due to their record of so many extra large crimes against humanity.

The U.S. and other Western countries chant human rights and democracy in front of the world. But at their back, they break the UN Charter and human rights instruments desperately as these are contrary to their own interests.

The United Nations should give priority to a discussion on their human rights violations and refer the criminals concerned to a court of justice.

It is the consistent policy of the DPRK government to continue protection and promotion of the rights of the popular masses with full responsibility.

Despite persistent sanctions and pressure by the U.S. and other hostile forces, the DPRK government concentrates all its efforts on improving the people's standard of living and providing them with a better future.

It is the stark reality of the DPRK that such advantageous policies for the popular masses as universal free medical care, free education, free housing and gender equality continue to take effect and that all the people fully exercise and enjoy their rights in all sectors of social life.

Our people are boundlessly proud of their socialist system selected, consolidated and developed by their own will and also of their genuine system protecting and promoting the human rights which capitalism can neither have nor imitate.

The DPRK neither recognizes nor accepts the anti-DPRK "resolutions" railroaded through the Human Right Council and the Third Committee of the UNGA, as in the past.

The DPRK hopes for sincere dialogue and cooperation for genuine promotion and protection of human rights in the international human rights field, but will strongly respond to the end the confrontation and pressure to stifle our system. -0-

Rong Jian: Who wins or lose with nuclearized North Korea (edited)

We publish this article by the Chinese writer Rong Jiang , we do not nessecarily endorse or agree with the all the contesnts of the article 

 
2017-7-11
Recently, North Korea successfully launched another intercontinental missile with enough range to reach the United States. The international community appraised North Korea with a different eye.
Despite harsh international sanctions, North Korea was able to develop nuclear weapons step by step to a point of conducting a test launch of the intercontinental missile.
So far the United Nations has not come up with any practical and effective measures of sanctions other than the formation of several near-waste paper agreements. The root cause of this situation is that the three major powers of China, Russia, and the United States have very different positions on resolving the DPRK issue.
The United States advocates further severe sanctions on North Korea. In particular, it demanded that relevant countries cut off the oil supply to North Korea. If the economic sanctions remain ineffective, it will not rule out the final elimination of North Korea's nuclear facilities and nuclear capabilities by force. China and Russia, based on their common standpoint, advocating peaceful dialogue to resolved the DPRK issue. They stress that military means should not become an option for resolving the issue, and further oppose the U.S. deployment of the SADR missile defense system in South Korea. They believe the deployment has seriously damaged the stability of the national strategic security interests of the region, including China and Russia, and it will not help achieve the goal of a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and regional peace and stability.
The great differences between China, Russia and the United States in resolving the DPRK issue will be difficult to reconcile now because of this instances.
Can the United States and North Korea accept the solution of "double suspension" and "double-track integration" put forward now by China and Russia, is still a big question mark.
For the United States, it is almost impossible to take the lead in halting the U.S.-South Korea joint military exercise. For North Korea, becoming a nuclear-weapon state has been written into the country's constitution and it is almost impossible to take the initiative to abandon its nuclear program.
Since the United States and North Korea cannot take the initiative to stop neither the military exercises, nor nuclear tests, isn't it too much of a wishful thinking for China and Russia to desire making the impossible possible?
Moreover, North Korea has determined to fight to the death, has overcome all difficulties, has gained nuclear deterrent, and is now in a favorable position to dominate the situation.
The grim fact is that no matter how China and Russia were committed to resolve the North Korea's nuclear issue by peaceful means, not only the problem has not been alleviated but instead has become increasingly serious over the past 10 years. The determination of North Korea for nuclear testing grew, the development of nuclear weapons and missiles accelerated, and it’s technology was getting more mature.
Some so-called experts think that North Korea simply does not have the capability to develop intercontinental missiles.
The DPRK's successful launch of intercontinental missiles is a slap on those experts' face.
North Korea apparently is pleased to see the rest of the world under illusions and dreams while despising their nuclear weapons and missile research and development capabilities. They had a triumphant laughter seeing the US imperialists and Chinese revisionists stunned by the nuclear bombs and missiles that they created through their own national efforts.
North Korea's nuclear arsenal has become a fait accompli, and its long-range delivery capability has been perfected. This increasingly uncontrollable situation took place precisely while China and Russia continuing appeal to resolve the DPRK issue by peaceful means.
This more than a dozen years is crucial to North Korea. Its nuclear weapons technology has soared by leaps and bounds and it certainly established a combat capability.
Any attempt now to launch an external attack on North Korea in order to completely eliminate its nuclear forces, countries around the Korean Peninsula, including China, of course, will most likely have to bear insufferable huge costs and may even be an Armageddon.
To date, it must be admitted that the combined efforts of the five nations China, Russia, the United States, Japan, and the ROK not only failed to stop North Korea's abandoning it's[FE1]  nuclear weapons but instead became the five tactile dolls in the hands of North Korea. Under North Korea's control, Sino-U.S. relation became tense, Sino-Japan relation is broken, Sino-South Korean relation cracked, Japan and South Korea become adversary, while China and Russia become fair weather friends. The established stability in East Asia based on the strategic balance after WWII and the peace and friendly relation in East Asia since China's reform and opening up might be destroyed.
Now it is time for the reckoning. Regardless of what kind of abacus each China, Russia, the United States, Japan, the ROK and the DPRK played, in the face of such a harsh and complex situation created by North Korea, all should come to a settlement. Who is Winners and losers in this game?
I make the following analysis:
First, North Korea may be the biggest winner in this nuclear-dominated international game.
On the winning side, after risking being exterminated, North Korea's ruthless development of nuclear weapons renders itself on the driver seat. Now it has the verified capability of war and all external combat forces dear not to underestimate. Nuclear Deterrence is indeed the most powerful killer weapon a small country can have to resist against large countries, so that the big powers cannot act rashly against a small country. In this regard, the strategic goal of North Korea has been reached overall. North Korea can continue to strengthen and improve its nuclear attack capabilities, and withdraw its nuclear countervailing duty at the last minute as the largest bargaining chip in exchange for the security it has been expecting.
The DPRK's successful launch of the intercontinental missile has already broken through the critical point that the United States can endure. Will North Korea win or lose? It appears to have a larger winning side to it.
Second, China is the biggest loser for now. After North Korea's possession of nuclear deterent, China lost both its control of North Korea and its good relations with South Korea. If China wants to dominate the political order in East Asia, losing effective control over the Korean Peninsula means it will not be able to get anything done. It will further strengthen the alliance between Japan and South Korea, and provide more justification for the U.S. to return to East Asia. The loss of control over the DPRK means the failure of China's entire East Asian diplomacy.
North Korea's nuclear threat to China is a direct threat, i.e. to further aggravate the arms race in East Asia. South Korea's forced introduction of the U.S.-led missile defense system is only the first step in an arms race. If North Korea continues to expand its nuclear test, it may trigger an East Asia nuclear arms race. Then, East Asia will become a thermonuclear zone of the world, and there will be no peace among East Asian countries.
At present, there is only one option for China to shed its passive situation in dealing with North Korea. That is to break the existing diplomatic framework based on ideology, move out of the illusory mindset of uniting Russia against the United States, move towards a genuine cooperation between the east and the west. (Otherwise, if)[FE2]  The United States launches a military strike, it will be a nuclear disaster on the peninsula, North Korea will be reduced to ruins by the war and bring disaster to China. No matter what happens, China is without doubt a loser.
Third, in the six-nation game that is currently centered on North Korea's nuclear possession, if there is a winner, Russia certain is the one now. Russia has won tremendous opportunities to implement its Far East strategy because of the DPRK nuclear issue.
Russia has always declared that it is the least related country in the six countries, and its interests are the smallest compared with the other five countries. It has consistently advertised that the position it uphold is the most objective and fair to the DPRK issue. However, as obvious as anyone can see, Russia supports the DPRK's nuclear test more directly than China. Why Russia wants to do this, even at the risk of offending the United States? Because North Korea's nuclear development is in Russia's strategic interest in the Far East.
Without the North Korea's nuclear issue, Russia has no role to play in East Asia. Its Far East interests will gradually be siphoned off by China's enormous economic capacity. North Korea's nuclear-weapon policy has disrupted the peace in East Asia and broke the political balance in East Asia, giving Russia a major opportunity to return to East Asia. Russia has gained bargaining chips with the United States due to the DPRK nuclear issue, and it can use this to bargain with China also.
It is worth mentioning that Russia possesses such a huge national interest advantage on resolving the DPRK's question while it has almost no risks. Even if the worst situation in North Korea occurs, in the event of a nuclear war, or a nuclear accident, it will have the least impact on Russia. Therefore, when Russia meets such a good opportunity, it will not let it go. Maintaining the present tense situation in the Korean Peninsula and the status quo in North Korea gave Russia a spectacular ability to watch others fight it out while being able to reap benefit at any time it wants.
Fourth, the United States is the key to the ultimate resolution of the DPRK issue. The problem is cost control. If it is a nuclear disaster and hundreds of thousands of people die on the peninsula, the cost will be too great. The United States will have to weigh the consequences of the war.
If the United States hits North Korea, what are the benefits? Almost none.
Should the United States use force against North Korea if China and Russia hold that the military solution is not an option? This is the challenge faces the United States. President Trump is a penny-pinching interest calculator. Will he fight North Korea because of some universal principles? War or no war is a dilemma for the United States. The final decision is in the hands of the United States, but it also need to consider the attitudes of Japan and South Korea.
Fifth. Japan and South Korea fully agree with the position of the United States in resolving the North Korean nuclear issue. Both countries had signed military agreements with the United States, and must militarily obey the U.S. strategy in the Far East. However, if the United States really uses force against North Korea, Japan and South Korea must surely weigh the consequences and costs of such a war. At present, this is the main factor that inhibits the use of force by the United States.
For Japan, the war was a painful memory for the Japanese nationals. Accepting the lesson and the defeat of World War II, Japan's constitution stipulates that it will never again enter in a war. Therefore, Japan has the power but not the will to use force to resolve the nuclear issue in DPRK. In other words, if Japan enters a state of war, its ability to fight the war is adequate. Even if Japan is to use its existing naval and air forces capabilities to deal with North Korea, it will be more than enough, not to mention the full mobilization of the war capabilities. The problem in Japan is that as the only country in the world that has been subjected to an atomic bomb, its nationals do not have the will to fought, and could not imagine going through another nuclear attack. I believe Japan has no preparation for a war at all.
It is even more unbearable for South Korea than Japan to face a war. Japan has the power but not the heart for a war. South Korea has neither the power nor the heart, that is, neither the capability to fight a war nor the determination to fight a war. If South Korea does not have U.S. military support and wants to go it alone with North Korea, it can be certain that there is almost no chance of winning. Not only do the current President Moon Jae-in is afraid of a war with North Korea, the former so-called hawkish President Lee Myung-bak, when encountered  the Yin Ping Island artillery incident, at most he did was to bluffing a few shouts, but dear not to have a real fight. After President Moon took office, he repeatedly emphasized that the DPRK nuclear issue should be solved peacefully, because, deep in his bones, he is afraid of North Korea. Now that North Korea has a nuclear weapon, he will only be more afraid.
The role of the United States, Japan and South Korea in dealing with North Korea can now be presented by a cartoon. The big brother of the United States wants to protect his younger brothers and beat up North Korea, but the younger brothers of South Korea and Japan not only do not help but to hold their big brother's leg firmly, preventing his from charging forward.
Since Japan and South Korea held such an attitude, how could the United States use force against North Korea?

Kim Jong Un Visits Kumsong Tractor Factory



























Pyongyang, November 15 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the Kumsong Tractor Factory which successfully carried out the task for production of new-type tractors, entrusted by the Party, in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.

He looked round the room for education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the factory.

Noting that President Kim Il Sung visited the factory 34 times and leader Kim Jong Il ten times, he said that, through the figures alone, one can well know about the immortal guidance feats performed by the great leaders for the development of the Juche-based tractor industry.

Seeing with deep emotion the photos of Kim Il Sung watching the Chollima tractor made by the workers of the factory on Nov. 14, 1958 and Kim Jong Il giving important instructions for the factory's development before the newly-made tractor Chollima-2000, he stressed it is thanks to their devoted efforts that the factory could register brilliant successes in the struggle to realize the comprehensive mechanization of agriculture over the past years.

The respected Supreme Leader examined new-type 80 h.p. tractors, Chollima-804, produced at the factory.

Watching with a bright smile in his face hundreds of blue-painted tractors standing in rows, he said with high appreciation that it is very spectacular and that the factory made a great success.

He personally rode on a tractor and drove it to learn in detail about its performance and technical specifications.

Saying that the workers of the factory who set the great era of Chollima in a ferment with the production of the first Chollima tractor are adding shine to the present era of Mallima with the production of new-type tractor Chollima-804, he stressed that the buzzing sound of the 80 h.p. tractor, a proud creation of the era of Mallima, represents the grand march of Socialist Korea.

Then he went round processing and assembling workshop, sheet metal processing workshop, casting workshop and other parts of the factory and set forth its tractor production assignment for next year as well as the task for its modernization.

Another revolution should be made in positively propelling the development of the country's vehicle industry through a project of upgrading the Kumsong Tractor Factory, he said, showing benevolence for the renovation of the factory and promising that he would dispatch a powerful building force of the people's army.

He had a photo session with the labor innovators of the factory.

Accompanying him were Pak Pong Ju, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and premier of the Cabinet, O Su Yong, vice-chairman of the C.C., WPK, and Jo Yong Won, vice department director of the C.C., WPK. -0-

Thoughtless Pursuance of U.S. Will Bring Tragic End: KCNA Commentary


Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- Japanese Prime Minister Abe's despicable act during Trump's visit to Japan has drawn the derision of the world people.

At a press conference after talks with Trump, Abe voiced his consistent support for Trump's stand that all options are on the table over the Korean issue, and even asserted that there was a strong reconfirmation that Japan and the U.S. are 100 percent identical in their stands to the Korean issue.

The faithful stooge's despicable act of supporting the master's hostile policy toward the DPRK truly arouses aversion.

It seems to be the invariable disposition peculiar to political dwarf Japan to blindly follow the U.S. and support whatever it does with all devotion.

Abe flattered the master and actively fanned up his zeal for a nuclear war against the DPRK. Lurking behind this is his intention to fan up the vanity of old lunatic Trump and keep the situation tense and thus fish in troubled waters.

In fact, Japan wishes for the tension on the Korean peninsula more than others.

The Abe group which regards the escalation of tension on the peninsula as an excellent pretext for the constitutional revision and for pushing forward its plan for becoming a military giant is fully supporting the crazy strategy of Trump for increasing the danger of a nuclear war.

Abe who used to be lucky to tide over ruling crisis with the "threat to security" by the DPRK as a pretext, is now going in high spirits and openly fanning up his master's racket for a nuclear war.

With Trump's visit as an occasion, he loudly trumpeted about "serious threat to international community as a whole" and "maximum pressure". This was prompted by his sordid intention.

It is the invariable ambition of the island men to launch continental aggression with the backing of the U.S.

It is worth taking note of the statement of a former Japanese diplomat that "it is only Trump out of the leaders of various countries in the present world who talk about threat by force at the UN general Assembly and it is only Abe out of the leaders of various countries who pursues Trump. How despicable the talks between the two persons are".

Washington Post on Nov. 6 commented that Trump and Abe have taken the same stand out of their common hostility toward the DPRK but their relationship is the strategic master-slave one and the attitude of Trump treating Abe is the one of treating his assistant.

The "majestic and powerful diplomacy" touted by Abe is, in the long run, nothing but diplomacy submitting to the U.S.

Such diplomacy will not help "defend the lives and a peaceful life of Japanese" but will cause misfortune.

Japan should mind that it will face a miserable end should it go reckless relying on the U.S. which is no more than a paper tiger. -0

The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK (ASSPUK) and the Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE) today issued the following statement on the 25th anniversary of the publication of the work "Socialism Is the Life of Our People " by the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL  :
 Totday it is 25 years since the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL published his excellent and highly perceptive work "Socialism Is the Life of Our People " which fully expounds and details the superiority of Juche-orientated socialism  which has become the life of the Korean people . Although socialism had been frustrated in a number of countries comrade KIM JONG IL reiterated his faith in the victory of socialism pointing that ultimately the imperialists and reactionaries will be defeated  and the revolutionary peoples will truimph.
  As comrade KIM JONG IL points out in the work " Socialism is the life of our people. Whether our people remain alive or die, i.e., whether they lead an independent and creative life as masters of the state and society or become the slave of others, getting maltreatment and contempt, depends on whether they defend socialism or not. As the song goes, socialism defended means victory and socialism abandoned means death. Whatever the difficulties and trials, we must never abandon the socialism we chose and are building by our efforts."
  This is a very basic truth ,socialism means life . Juche-orientated socialism is the cradle of life for the Korean people.
 Defending socialism and advancing means more thoroughly applying the Juche idea . Socialism must have a firm ideological foundation and the Juche Idea is the ideological foundation of Korean socialism . As the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL explains  
"Our socialism is advancing victoriously unperturbed amidst the continuing vicious moves of the imperialists and reactionaries just because it is based on the Juche idea and guided by this idea. While socialism is the life of our people, the Juche idea is the life of our socialism.
We must staunchly defend the Juche idea from the infiltration of the bourgeois reactionary ideological trend of all hues, steadily develop it and apply it in a thoroughgoing way in all fields of revolution and construction.
The course of building socialism is the course of applying the Juche idea and socialist and communist societies are those modelled on that idea.
Throughout his life the great leade comrade KIM IL SUNG firmly maintained the Juche -orientated stand. 
Comrade KIM JONG IL in the work scathingly denounces those countries that restored 
capitalism pointing out that they are not democratic  "What are the bourgeois restorationists themselves doing now, those who are abusing socialism? They have disbanded communist parties and force everything on the lower echelons by invoking presidential decree"
 This is indeed very true .
This work is a very valuable work that is full of sharp and clear judgements , it is a work that is a weapon in the struggle for socialism . We highly commend it to the reader.

                      London 14th of November  Juche 106(2017)
 The Association for the Study of Songun Politics and the Juche Idea Study Group of England issued the following joint statement on the occasion of the 7th anniversary of the victorious Yongphyong island shelling incident  ;
  On the 23rd of November 7 ago  the south Korean fascist puppets provoked the Yongphyong Island shelling by firing shells into the territory of the DPRK despite repeated warnings not to do so . This was done to try and enforce the illusory and bogus "northern limit line " , which is illegal and is rejected by the DPRK. The Korean People's Army (KPA), the revolutionary armed force of Juche, retaliated by shelling the source of the firing, Yongphyong island ,turning it into a sea of fire. Thus the south Korean puppets paid a high price for their stupidity The south Korean puppets and their US imperialist masters run about in fear and panic.The then puppet boss Lee Myung Bak and his cohorts taking refuge in an underground bunker. Indeed the south Korean puppets were like naughty children running home to their parents (in this case the US imperialists) crying because someone had chastised  them for wrongdoing.
    The Yongphyong Island shelling was a   historic event that demonstrated the spirit, mettle and invincible might of the KPA, which has been trained into an a powerful Juche-orienated  army  of Mt Paektu under the care of Generalissimo KIM JONG IL and Marshal KIM JONG UN.  Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN skilfully commanded the KPA to win a great victory during the Yonphyong island incident. The south Korean puppets should remember the Yongphyong incident and draw lessons from it.
   The DPRK will always respond to any provocations and deal a crushing blow to any aggressors so therefore the south Korean puppets should never act rashly.The south Korean puppets must desist from provocative wargames !
  The US imperialists and south Korean fascist puppets can never defeat the heroic Korean People's Army led by respected Marshal KIM JONG UN an ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander of Songun ! Should the US imperialists and south Korean puppets start another war the glorious KPA will smash them and reunify the country !

SOCIALISM IS THE LIFE OF OUR PEOPLE KIM JONG IL

KIM JONG IL


SOCIALISM IS THE LIFE OF OUR PEOPLE

Talk with the Senior Officials of the Central Committee
of the Workers' Party of Korea
November 14, 1992


Over the recent years the imperialists and reactionaries have been resorting to every scheme possible to stifle our country, which is advancing invariably holding the banner of socialism under the leadership of the Party and the leader. The more desperate the enemy is in his attempt, the higher we must hold the banner, crushing the enemy’s counterrevolutionary offensive by means of revolutionary offensive.
Although the imperialists and reactionaries are making desperate attempts to obliterate socialism on the earth, socialism is cherished as deep as ever in the hearts of the revolutionary people all over the world and is advancing on its track. Socialism is the ideal of humanity and that socialism achieves victory is a law of the development of history. No matter how desperately they attempt to stamp out socialism, the imperialists and reactionaries cannot reverse the tide of history. Today the revolutionary people of the world, under the banner of the Pyongyang Declaration, are fighting resolutely to defend and advance the cause of socialism. The struggle for socialism is being waged not only in those countries where socialism has collapsed but in the capitalist countries. It is doubtless that the manoeuvring of the imperialists and reactionaries will be frustrated and socialism will make an uninterrupted advance and emerge victorious in the long run by the struggle of the revolutionary parties and people of the world.
With an unshakable faith in the victory of socialism, we must approach the present situation on an optimistic point of view and staunchly defend the cause of socialism.
Socialism is the life of our people. Whether our people remain alive or die, i.e., whether they lead an independent and creative life as masters of the state and society or become the slave of others, getting maltreatment and contempt, depends on whether they defend socialism or not. As the song goes, socialism defended means victory and socialism abandoned means death. Whatever the difficulties and trials, we must never abandon the socialism we chose and are building by our efforts.
In order to defend and advance the cause of socialism, we must apply the Juche idea in all fields of revolution and construction in a thoroughgoing way.
The Juche idea is the ideological foundation of socialism and the only guiding ideology of revolution and construction. Our style of socialism centred on the masses is based on the Juche idea and embodies this idea; it is Juche-orientated socialism. Socialism devoid of ideological foundation and perfect guiding ideology cannot be called genuine socialism and it might be frustrated, unable to check the anti-socialist schemes of the imperialists and reactionaries. This is shown graphically by the lesson of those countries where socialism was frustrated and capitalism has been restored. Our socialism is advancing victoriously unperturbed amidst the continuing vicious moves of the imperialists and reactionaries just because it is based on the Juche idea and guided by this idea. While socialism is the life of our people, the Juche idea is the life of our socialism.
We must staunchly defend the Juche idea from the infiltration of the bourgeois reactionary ideological trend of all hues, steadily develop it and apply it in a thoroughgoing way in all fields of revolution and construction.
The course of building socialism is the course of applying the Juche idea and socialist and communist societies are those modelled on that idea.
The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung authored the idea in his early years and has applied it in all fields of revolution and construction with all consistency. He leads revolution and construction and lives his life in our own way. The anecdote concerning the colour of suiting illustrates graphically how firm his Juche-orientated stand is. Once our officials suggested to him that he have his suit made of the material of a certain colour, saying that suits made of such material were now in fashion. He told them fashion should follow him, not the other way round.
We must cherish the Juche idea as our faith and apply it in all sectors of revolution and construction thoroughly so as to add further lustre to our style of socialism centred on the masses, the Juche-orientated socialism.
In order to defend socialism and exalt its brilliance, we must further consolidate the single-hearted unity of the leader, the Party and the masses.
The leader, the Party and the masses form a body in which they share their destiny. Their firm unity based on ideology, will, morality and obligation is a guarantee for the invincibility of the cause of socialism. We must rally all people around the Party and the leader more firmly, thus incessantly consolidating the might of the single-hearted unity.
In defending socialism in the present times it is of great importance to check the abuses of every description the imperialists and bourgeois restorationists are levelling against socialism and bring the righteousness and advantages of the socialist cause home to Party members and other working people.
The imperialists and those who have restored bourgeois society are abusing socialism, calling it "totalitarian", "barracks-like" and "administrative-commanding". This is illogical, reactionary sophistry devoid of theoretical foundation. What are the bourgeois restorationists themselves doing now, those who are abusing socialism? They have disbanded communist parties and force everything on the lower echelons by invoking presidential decrees.
They are slinging mud at socialism and if we fail to lay bare the reactionary nature of their "theory", some people not prepared ideologically might become sceptical of socialism. We must disclose the reactionary nature of their "theory" and equip Party members and other working people with the socialist ideology.
I am going to write and make public in the near future a treatise criticizing their abuses of socialism. The sector of theoretical information, too, must produce many articles that lay bare the reactionary nature of the theory of the imperialists and bourgeois restorationists against socialism and explain the truthfulness and advantages of the socialist ideology and theory. Our Party expounded all theoretical problems arising in the practice of the socialist revolution and socialist construction including the problem of the three revolutions--ideological, technological and cultural--the problem of achieving oneness of mind of the leader, the Party and the masses; also the problem of properly combining centralism and democracy and strengthening the people's democratic dictatorship. When we reveal the reactionary nature of the abuses of socialism hurled by the imperialists and bourgeois restorationists as we stand on the ideas and theories our Party put forward for the socialist revolution and socialist construction, we will be able to greatly encourage the people who are making an effort to check the imperialists' and reactionaries' machinations and defend socialism.
We must also write articles on the limitations of the theories authored by the earlier writers of classics so as to give our Party members and other working people a correct understanding of the originality and superiority of the socialist ideology and theory of our Party.
Marxism-Leninism is a revolutionary ideology created reflecting the requirements of the revolutionary practice of the working class in the days of pre-monopoly capitalism and imperialism. History has advanced far and the times have changed since then. We are now in a new era of independence, when the popular masses, as the masters of history and their own destiny, carve out history and their destiny independently and creatively. The authors of Marxism had no experience of building socialism, and it is the same with Lenin. Owing to the limitations of the conditions of their times and their practical experiences the socialist theories put forward by the authors of Marxism-Leninism could not go, in some cases, beyond the limit of prediction and supposition.
For all their limitations, we must not take a nihilistic approach to Marxism-Leninism or cavil at their authors. We must recognize the exploits Marx, Engels and Lenin performed for mankind and respect them. Thanks to the creation of Marxism-Leninism, the socialist theory developed from fantasy to science; the working class was able to have a guiding ideology for the first time in history and they could struggle vigorously against capital and for class emancipation, national liberation and socialism. Respecting the authors of the theories is an obligation on us in view of the principle of the juniors of the revolution respecting their seniors.
When writing articles about the limitations of Marxism-Leninism we must not fail to explain the exploits their creators accomplished. Only then can we give a correct understanding of Marxism-Leninism to the people and deal a blow to the imperialists and bourgeois restorationists who are caviling at this ideology.
In order to correctly write about the limitations of the theories expounded by Marxism-Leninism, one must have a good knowledge of the originality and superiority of the revolutionary ideology of our Party, the Juche idea. The Juche idea is an original idea and perfect revolutionary theory of communism the great leader created reflecting the requirements of the new era of history, the era of independence. If we clarify the originality and superiority of the Juche idea effectively, then the limitations of the theories of Marxism-Leninism will be revealed on its own accord.
The officials in the field of theoretical information should study the Juche idea hard and learn in depth its originality and superiority. They should also study classical works like The Capital to become well-informed of Marxism-Leninism.
Songs of high ideological and artistic qualities should be created in a large number. Such songs instil faith in the cause of socialism and strong will in the hearts of the people encouraging them to greater efforts. Don't Advance, Night of Pyongyang is one of these songs. This song will encourage the soldiers of the Korean People's Army and our people even in days of war. I still feel strength welling up whenever I listen to the song. A man must know how to appreciate the songs. There cannot be life divorced from song. In the days of war not only songs but also broadcasting encourage the soldiers and people. During the Second World War Yuri Levitan, an announcer of the Soviet Union, broadcast the reports of the Supreme Headquarters, rousing the Soviet soldiers and people to victory in the war. He became famous for his broadcasting. Furious, Hitler ordered that Levitan should be the first to be killed after the occupation of Moscow. Our announcers, too, do their job efficiently. They will do their share as they should in time of war.
These days the sector of the art of music has produced many songs of high ideological and artistic qualities. Don't Advance, Night of Pyongyang is an excellent song for its high ideological and artistic qualities. So is If Our Mother Party Wishes. The text of the latter song is written well.
In future the musical art sector must create many songs which become a national treasure with high ideological and artistic qualities. Songs of this kind are not something special. They are those the leader and the people enjoy singing. Except for the Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble, the artistic organizations now fail to produce such songs in a great number. These organizations must produce many songs of national treasure with material based on life. In order to create these songs, one must make it a habit to produce them to be pleasant with the materials derived from life. One cannot produce excellent songs if one proceeds from a subjective desire to create songs of national treasure. If songs describe life and people enjoy singing them, they become national treasures. To achieve this, creative workers must absorb themselves in the lives of people and get themselves fully acquainted with the people's aspiration and demands.
Songs must be portrayed well. If a song is not portrayed well, it cannot prove its worth no matter how excellent it is.

KCNA Commentary Slashes Efforts for Revival of Conservatism in S. Korea


Pyongyang, November 13 (KCNA) -- The conservatives in south Korea are making desperate efforts to evade the total ruin and prolong their dirty remaining days.

The "Liberal Korea Party" has gone crafty to win public support through the publication of a "party renovation manifesto" and with such honey-coated words as "three renovations" while claiming "renovation is the only way out for conservatism".

They describe the measure taken to expel Park Geun Hye from the party and the pressure offensive to force leading pro-Park Geun Hye elements So Chong Won and Choe Kyong Hwan to leave the party as a bold and meaningful beginning for "renovation".

The "Parun Party" members who have faced the end in the wake of withdrawal of the coalition party members from the party are also struggling hard to maintain their existence while promoting such "reformist policies" as "economic democracy" and "narrowing the differences between the rich and the poor". They are eyeing political collusion with the "Kukmin Party" while professing differences from the "Liberal Korea Party" under the signboard of "clean conservatism" and "reformist conservatism".

The farce of "conservatives' renovation" and "conservatives' reform" staged by the conservative group in their search of a way-out is the last-ditch efforts of those who outlived their days.

Historically, the conservative forces of south Korea have been renowned as a group of traitors to the nation who took the lead in fostering national division and fratricidal war and bringing unspeakable misfortune, pain and disaster to the south Koreans.

Everyone knows that the LKP and the "Parun Party" are from the bankrupt "Saenuri Party" which had been in line with Park Geun Hye to pursue traitorous politics and corruption and irregularities.

Whatever sleight of hand the group of conservatives may resort to, nothing will change. This is the unanimous comment of the south Koreans who experienced the behavior of the conservative ruling forces for more than half a century.

The April popular uprising in 1960, the October resistance for democracy in 1979 and the June popular resistance in 1987 and the candlelight demonstration in October last year for the elimination of Park Geun Hye were stern punishment meted out to the conservative forces by the south Koreans.

But the group of traitors who were sentenced to death together with Park Geun Hye have now gone clumsy to call for "conservatives' renovation" and "conservatives' reform" just reminding one of a drowning man catching at a straw.

Imbeciles keen on meeting their greed for power only are trying to veil their ambition for the revival of conservatism and stay in power with such words as "renovation" and "reform" but their crimes fresh in the memory of the people can never be written off.

The nightmare of history will repeat, should conservatism is allowed to go roughshod, challenging the candlelight mindset.

The broad segments of the south Koreans should not tolerate the childish burlesque of the conservatives but courageously turn out in the struggle to abolish conservatism and evil administration and to achieve new politics, new society and new life. -0-
