A Communist should have largeness of mind and he should be staunch and active, looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life and subordinating his personal interests to those of the revolution; always and everywhere he should adhere to principle and wage a tireless struggle against all incorrect ideas and actions, so as to consolidate the collective life of the Party and strengthen the ties between the Party and the masses; he should be more concerned about the Party and the masses than about any private person, and more concerned about others than about himself. Only thus can he be considered a Communist.
The United States has agreed to allow South Korea to possess longer-range missiles that could strike anywhere in North Korea, officials said on Sunday, a development expected to draw an angry response from Pyongyang.
Under a 2001 accord with Washington, South Korea has been barred from developing and deploying ballistic missiles with a range of more than 300km (186 miles) and a payload of more than 500kg (1,100lb) to avert a regional arms race. The restriction has made its missile capability inferior to that of the North and put key military sites out of range.
South Korea announced on Sunday that the US accord has been altered to allow the South to have ballistic missiles with a range of up to 800km to cope with the North’s nuclear and missile threats.
Under the new agreement, South Korea will continue to limit the payload to 500kg for ballistic missiles with an 800-km range, but it will be able to use heavier payloads for missiles with shorter ranges, Chun Yung-woo South Korea’s security minister, told a news conference. The heavier a payload is, the more destructive power it can have.
