PYONGYANG, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) would intensify anti-U.S. education among its young soldiers and ordinary citizens as it is a strong ideological weapon against the war moves and sanctions by Washington, said an official daily Monday.

Rodong Sinmun, the official daily of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea, said in an editorial that the United States is making desperate efforts to deprive the DPRK of its sovereignty, and the right to existence and development after the latter has developed nuclear and missile capacities.

"If anti-U.S. class consciousness is paralyzed among the younger generations, the revolution would be left unfinished and the whole nation would be slave of the U.S. imperialists," it said.

The editorial also said the United States is "afraid of the ideological and moral strength of the army and people of the DPRK equipped with transparent class consciousness."

Anti-U.S. education and propaganda are prevailing in the DPRK which regards the United States as its bitterest enemy in the world with aggression wars, miliary occupation of the southern part of the peninsula, and constant war threats and economic blockade through U.N. sanctions.

The DPRK has reacted furiously to the remarks made by U.S. President Donald Trump against the DPRK, in particular the threat to "totally destroy" the country, when he made a speech at the U.N. General Assembly last month.
