Rodong Sinmun on Spirit of Devotedly Defending Leader
Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Thursday in an article says that the Korean people have deemed the spirit of devotedly defending the leader, pioneered by the anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners, to be the dearest and the greatest of their exploits.
The anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters are true revolutionaries and ardent patriots who proved in their practical struggle that a victory in the revolution lies in devotedly defending the leader, says the article, and goes on:
The anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners pioneered the spirit of devotedly defending the leader in the snowstorm of Mt Paektu. This is the greatest feat performed by them for the eternal prosperity of the country and the nation.
As the spirit of devotedly defending the leader has been successfully carried forward for decades and generations, legendary stories about the great war victory in the 1950s were created, leaps forward made in the spirit of Chollima from scratch and the firm foundations for building a powerful nation provided despite the unprecedented hardships.
The spirit of devotedly defending the leader is the main source of all victories and glory of Juche Korea shining with miracles.
This spirit displayed by the first generation of the Korean revolution is the one of Korea to be eternally carried forward, the proud tradition to be handed down generation after generation by the Korean people and the national customs peculiar to Juche Korea, despite shifts in generation and the ever-changing conditions and environment of the revolutionary struggle.
