It goes on:

After the victorious three year-long Fatherland Liberation War, the Korean people turned out in the post-war rehabilitation and construction to heal war wounds and usher in the era of Chollima.

They laid firm foundation for self-supporting national economy by working such miracles of history as completing socialist industrialization in a matter of 14 years.

Even in the period of the Arduous March, forced march which could have brought down other countries more than hundred times, they defended Korean-style socialism with their own faith and opened up a broad avenue to prosperity.

Self-reliance serves as a great power that makes it possible to safeguard the country and save the nation under the present situation in which the imperialists are getting evermore undisguised in their moves for domination.
