Pyongyang, April 15 (KCNA) -- Today, independence has become a clear symbol showing the greatness of President Kim Il Sung and a historical term praising his sacred revolutionary life and immortal exploits.

Independence was his lifelong revolutionary creed, revolutionary method and revolutionary practice.

In his famous works published during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle, Kim Il Sung clarified the truth that the sovereignty of each country and nation could be achieved only by the efforts and struggle of each nation itself. With this truth, he built up the Juche-based revolutionary forces and realized the historic cause of Korea's liberation in reliance on them.

After the liberation of the country, he founded the Party, the state and the army and enforced the agrarian reform and other democratic reforms in a short span of time in accordance with the specific conditions of the country and independent demands and interests of the popular masses.

He set forth the main line of economic construction in the postwar period, a line of giving priority to the growth of heavy industry while simultaneously developing the light industry and agriculture, to provide a firm guarantee for building an independent national economy.

He also led the Korean revolution along the road of victory with steadfast independent politics like the line of simultaneously carrying on the building up of the economy and defense and the line of developing external relations on the basis of independence.

When big-power chauvinists forced "integrated economy" on the DPRK, the President rejected it and consistently adhered to the line of building the self-supporting national economy.

Through the great revolutionary practice, he proved that independence is the justice of history, victory of revolution and basis for developing the fair international relations.

He led the trend of history to the road of independence in the 20th century and thus opened up a new history in which the popular masses make the revolution of their country independently, free from domination and submission.

He did not abandon the independent stand even in the severe circumstances infested with high-handed and arbitrary practices of the imperialists and dominationists.

Indeed, the President was the strongest man of independent faith and will. -0-
