Independence and Self-respect Can Never Be Bartered for Anything: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, February 14 (KCNA) -- Independence and self-respect are the dignity, life and eternal mental mainstay of the DPRK which can never be bartered for anything, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.

Independence and self-respect are the life, faith and will of the DPRK people, the article says, and goes on:

The DPRK could not only withstand the persistent hideous blockade in which others might have collapsed a hundred times, but also rise higher as it laid the base of its founding by dint of independence and self-respect and opened a broad avenue to prosperity by dint of self-reliance.

It is independence and self-respect that our Party has regarded as its basis while clearly indicating the orientation and ways for the overall development of socialist construction.

Independence and self-respect are the best way to firmly guarantee the destiny and happiness of the DPRK people and posterity.

The Workers' Party of Korea has always directed primary efforts to bolstering up the self-defence capabilities as the destiny of the people and happiness of posterity lies in strengthening its own power to the maximum.

The people are dynamically advancing toward a rosy future, full of confidence in sure victory as they have the invincible military muscle.

Now, the DPRK is demonstrating its might as a dignified power with independence and self-respect as it is led by the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

It is the firm faith and will of Kim Jong Un to build the DPRK into a superpower which is demonstrating its name before the world by dint of independence and self-respect in the near future.
