An appeal to all the Korean people was adopted at a meeting of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK) held on Monday.
The appeal said that the election of deputies to the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly is a political event of great significance in glorifying the exploits of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il forever, further augmenting the people’s power under the guidance of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and bringing earlier the future of the socialist country, genuine one of the people.
It noted that Kim Jong Un is the symbol of the mightiness of Juche Korea, banner of every victory and glory and peerless patriot who put the dignity and power of the Republic on the highest level.
It stressed that it is necessary to cement the political and ideological might of the Korean-style socialist state centered on the popular masses in every way.
It went on:
Let us consolidate as firm as a rock the single-minded unity of our society in which all the people are united close around the Party by thoroughly applying the Juche-oriented view on the people and people-centered philosophy to state activities!
It is necessary to regard as a treasured sword of prosperity the self-reliance, that has been the banner of struggle and motive power of a leap forward in the whole course of the independent development of the Republic, and conduct an all-people onward campaign for opening a new road of advance for socialist construction with redoubled patriotism and zeal for work and creation.
It is the first and foremost task of our state, the genuine country of the people, to signally improve the people’s standard of living.
It is necessary to give fuller play to the advantages of our social system by accelerating socialist civilization.
Thanks to the courageous will and determination of Marshal Kim Jong Un, three north-south summit meetings were held and the historic Panmunjom Declaration and September Pyongyang Joint Declaration and north-south agreement in the military field adopted and a new landmark for national reconciliation and unity, peace and prosperity and reunification provided.
Let the north and the south value the declarations and agreements in which they made solemn commitments before the nation and thoroughly implement them!
It is necessary to eradicate the military hostility between the north and the south and take practical measures for turning the Korean peninsula into the lasting and durable peace zone.
Let us not allow joint military exercises with outsiders any longer and check and frustrate all acts escalating tension and destroying peace like the introduction of military hardware including strategic assets from outside.
It is necessary to comprehensively expand and develop cooperation and exchange between the north and the south and thus consolidate national reconciliation and unity and make all the compatriots substantially benefit from the mended relations between the north and the south.
Let us smash every sanction, pressure and challenge by outsiders by the concerted efforts of all the fellow countrymen and resolutely reject interference and intervention by outsiders to subordinate inter-Korean relations to their tastes and interests!
Let us actively search for ways for peaceful reunification based on an all-Korean agreement and make sincere efforts to realize it!
Let all the Koreans in the north, the south and abroad hold the respected Marshal Kim Jong Un in high esteem as the lodestar for the great national unity and reunification and dynamically accelerate the nation-wide advance for implementing the inter-Korean declarations in the redoubled courage under the banner of Korean nation-first and thus glorify this year as a historic one in which great advance will be made in the development of the north-south relations and accomplishment of the cause of the national reunification!
Independence, peace and friendship are the consistent foreign policy tenet of our Republic.
Let us continue to boost friendship, unity, cooperation and exchange with socialist countries and develop the relations with all the countries that are friendly to our country and thus make a positive contribution to world peace and security and prosperity common to mankind!
The appeal called upon everyone to dynamically struggle for the development of the power of the Republic, victory in the building of a powerful socialist nation, independent reunification of the country and accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche under the guidance of Kim Jong Un.
