Rodong Sinmun on Irresistible Trend of Times
Pyongyang, January 7 (KCNA) -- Developments in the international arena last year go to prove that the imperialists′ high-handed and arbitrary practices can work no longer and the trend of the times toward independence has become irresistible, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in a bylined article.
The article goes on:
The imperialists′ high-handed and arbitrary practices diametrically run counter to the publicly recognized principles of independence and equality in the international relations.
They can hardly cut ice with anyone any longer in the international community today when all countries and nations are carving out their destinies independently.
It is a global trend for the world people to head for independence and peace.
It is impossible for the imperialist forces to hold in check the global onward movement and realize their hegemonic ambition through their high-handed and arbitrary practices.
The trend of independence sweeps all over the continents and regions and an increasing number of countries are heading for independence.
The cause of independence is sure to triumph for its validity and truth.
Songun is a banner of struggle and a treasured sword for winning sure victory to be held fast to by the people advocating independence.
Nothing can stem the trend of the times toward independence.
The Workers′ Party and people of Korea will wage a vigorous struggle under the uplifted banner of independence against imperialism this year, too, and thus make a positive contribution to victoriously advancing the popular masses′ cause of independence, the cause of socialism, concludes the article.
