Rodong Sinmun on Development of Science and Technology
Pyongyang, December 7 (KCNA) -- In order to win shining victory in the on-going gigantic drive for building a great prosperous and powerful nation it is necessary to channel great efforts into the development of science and technology with a firm grip on the policy of the Workers' Party of Korea on attaching importance to science and technology. Rodong Sinmun Monday observes this in a signed article.

It goes on:

Both rapid progress in economy and the bolstering-up of military capability can be guaranteed by science and technology. If science and technology develop, one can become a strong one but if one is backward in them, one is bound to be weak. This is the main feature of the present era.

There is nothing to fear and no fortress unconquerable in the world if the most revolutionary idea and the invincible arms are supported by the latest science and technology.

The development of science and technology provides a sure guarantee for demonstrating the dignity of the nation by bolstering up the overall national power of the country and serves as an engine for steadily creating everything new and ultra-modern and making a leap forward to build a thriving nation.

It is an essential requirement for protecting the independent dignity of the nation to bolster up the national power of the country and this work can prove successful only when it is supported by science and technology.

It is the intention and wish of the WPK to make faster leap forward by going beyond the phases covered by other countries in the development of science and technology.

Push back the frontiers of science. This is the slogan the Korean people should put up at present.

Only when they dash ahead to push back the frontiers of science at a single step when others take a hundred steps, can they accomplish the cause of building a thriving nation with flying colors.

There are for them a solid foundation and potentiality for developing science and technology provided under the Party's leadership and a large contingent of able scientists and technicians.

All the party members and other working people, scientists and technicians should powerfully demonstrate the independent dignity of the country and the stamina to win a sure victory by thoroughly implementing the Party's policy of attaching importance to science and technology.
