What does Kim Jong-Un want?

Peace, security, recognition of the sovereignty of his country, a normal life for his people! This was also discussed at the meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers ' party of Korea, which was held at the end of the year in Pyongyang.

The Western media made a fuss about Kim Jong-UN's statement: if the US do not stop  their aggressive actions against the DPRK, if they continue to refuse to negotiate and search for constructive solutions, the DPRK will be forced to strengthen its defensive forces and prepare for an effective response to any American attack.

So what does Kim Jong-UN want? Peace, security, recognition of the sovereignty of his country, normal life for his people! Too much? Why should it  be too much? This is the minimum that any responsible statesman wants.

What will he give  in return? Peace, security, recognition of the sovereignty of others, the opportunity for each people to develop according to their own will and potential.

And what about the missiles, the alleged North Korean nuclear threat they're talking about in the West? Or the latest statements? Can you trust Kim Jong-Un in the shadow of the missiles?

Over the past two years, the world has had the opportunity to know the leader of the DPRK.  Acting abroad, in front of an army of journalists, he had several meetings with President Trump of the United States. Everyone could observe the North Korean leader's movements, habits, language skills, intelligence and education. The Western media was forced to admit that it was not a man-eating dictator, but a statesman who could compete with any of his Western colleagues.

It was obvious that he was young. Trump is twice his age, and he's obviously not America's future. Kim Jong-Un became DPRK's leader at the right time, and has the opportunity to lead his people as long as his grandfather, Kim Irsen. He's a man of the future.

Then why would he want to drag his country and himself into a self-destructive war?  The West has also seen that Kim Jong-UN is a thinking politician. He knows that no matter how many missiles the DPRK has, they can't start a nuclear war against the United States, Japan, or anyone else. It could be against South Korea, but no one in their right mind would believe that a Korean could use nuclear weapons against their countrymen, the people of South Korea. Kim Jong-UN doesn't want to destroy South Korea.he wants to unite the North with the South.

And the Great Army? Is that nothing? No, it's not nothing. But no matter how big the Korean People's Army is, it's not fit to land in the United States of America or Japan. South Korea isn't separated by the sea, only by  a demarcation zone, it's easier to get there. In 1953, the northern troops made it to Seoul, and they'd still be there, if the United States hadn't joined the war on the side of Lee Sin Man, the South Korean dictator.

But Kim Jong-Un doesn't want to start a war, either a nuclear war,or a conventional one. He also knows that in a war like this, neither China nor Russia would be his ally. Kim Jong-Un wants the US to leave the DPRK alone, recognize it's right to be independent, to be sovereign.

How can this be achieved? Kim Jong-Un understood something very important. He knows there's only one way to impress the United States, by force. Against the United States, good words, promises, ideologies don't work. If you have force, they will listen to you, and if you haven't, they will subdue you mercilessly.

Kim Jong-UN also acknowledged that the United States likes such a war when the enemy does not fire back.. Like in 1940, when Hitler's soldiers invaded Western Europe.  The French soldier gave up after a few Patriotic phrases and went home to help relatives in their hotels and restaurants, which made the stay in France for the occupying German army quite pleasant.

America would like to win with guided missiles, drones, all the latest technology, but without human casualties. If America loses  the "guys," as the American jargon says, trouble breaks out at home. Once the Vietnam war almost undermined American capitalism. Every president in America is terrified of sacrificing manpower, soldiers.

Kim Jong-UN at a meeting of the Workers' party of Korea also said that the DPRK will not allow itself to be fooled. For the past two years, the US has tried to force North Korea to give up its nuclear capabilities, giving nothing but promises for the future. Like this there will be no deal!

Kim Jong-UN is not threatening the United States, he just made it clear that the soldiers of the Korean people's army will return fire if the country is attacked. And he also made it clear that the DPRK will not leave this to chance, that it will do everything possible to develop its defense industry, to strengthen the Armed forces. Is it expensive? Yes, it is expensive, but whatever it costs, the independence of the country is above all.

The West has obviously understood something else, although it is afraid to speak about it openly. They realized that Kim Jong-UN is not for sale. He is not Gorbachev, to whom Bush and Kohl guaranteed individual survival, bourgeois well-being, if he renounced the Soviet Union, or at least did not interfere with those who imagined capitalist Russia in the place of the socialist Soviet Union. The leader of the DPRK can not be bought.

But why does the DPRK cling tooth and nail to  sovereignty, independence, in a world where interdependence, the need for integration, are growing, where supranational institutions aretaking over over national competencies?

Well, the people of Korea between 1910 and 1945. experienced all the suffering of Japanese colonialism The Japanese robbed everything they could, wiped out the Korean language, the culture, tried to wipe out everything the nation stands for. After the Japanese came the Americans, who failed to colonize Korea, but destroyed everything to the ground.  What other nation has had such a fate? No one can question the noble aspirations of the Korean people, the DPRK, aimed at protecting the country's independence.

But what does socialism have to do with it? Well, the connection is the most direct. Socialism holds society together. It teaches people solidarity, support for each other. It teaches them to understand that sometimes individual well-being must be subordinated to the interests of society.

Socialist society was the base on which the Soviet Union was able to rely in the Second world war, which gave it strength, which was the condition of its victory. The socialist society gave the Chinese, Cuban, and Vietnamese people the strength to successfully defend their national sovereignty, and with it the socialist society.

Where socialist society has been destroyed by external forces, where people have been convinced that capitalism is good and socialism is bad, national independence is often threatened. Yeltsin Russia has become a server of the West. The former socialist countries of Eastern Europe have switched to the path of capitalism, and they are formally considered sovereign. However, in practice, they are fighting to the death against those who want to turn the Europe of Nations into a European Empire.

Of course, the question arises, what kind of socialism exists in the DPRK? Even some Western Communist parties believe that what is happening in North Korea has nothing to do with socialism.

What can we say? Well, Western communist parties have never built socialism in their lives. They never had to mobilize their countries against the aggression of the United States and the capital world. They never had to think about what to feed the people if the capitalist world with its sanctions keeps them from doing anything. They were never in the position of North Korean communists, leaders of the DPRK.

What can we say? The Western Communist parties have never built socialism in their lives. They have never had to mobilize their countries against the aggression of the United States and the capitalist world. They never had to think about what to feed people when the capitalist world isolates them from everything with its sanctions. They have never been in the position of North Korean Communists, the leaders of the DPRK.

With an advanced economic background, under the cover of the traditions of Western bourgeois democracy, it is easy to figure out formulas about what an ideal socialism should be. It is easy to reproach the Korean people that their socialism differs from what they imagine it to be in the West.

The Workers' party of Korea has lifted the Korean people out of the almost unimaginable depths of poverty. It provided work, food, learning opportunities for all people. Always as much as the country could afford, but always a little more. They are building socialism, a society where the main thing is not money, but the interests of the people. Where power is not in the hands of monopolies, but in the hands of the people. If it were not so, if the Korean people did not need socialism, the Workers' party of Korea would hardly be celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

The communist and workers parties of the world made the right choice when they accepted the invitation of the Workers' party of Korea and the 22. international meeting of the Communist and Workers' parties  will be  held in DPRK, in the capital of a socialist country.

The Hungarian Workers' Party wholeheartedly supported this decision. It is our duty to help the struggle of socialist Korea, as our forefathers did seven decades ago during the Korean War.
