| Pyongyang, October 15 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday dedicates an article to the 10th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il's work "On Thoroughly Implementing the Party's Line of Attaching Importance to Science and Technology".
The work, published on October 15, Juche 92 (2003), is an important work which reflects the iron-will of Kim Jong Il to further glorify the DPRK as an invincible socialist state, holding fast to the party's line of attaching importance to science and technology.
The past decade since the publication of the work represents a shining history in which a new turn took place in the development of science and technology of the country under the leadership of the Workers' Party of Korea, the article said, and went on:
Kim Jong Il regarded the policy of attaching importance to science and technology along with policies of giving importance to ideology and arms as the three mainstays for building a thriving socialist nation and wisely led the struggle to develop science and technology.
It is the unshakable will of supreme leader Kim Jong Un to bring about a turning phase of building a thriving nation by dint of science and technology, true to the behests of Kim Jong Il.
Kim Jong Un's wise leadership serves as an engine to raise the patriotic enthusiasm and intellectual potential of the scientists and technicians to the maximum and bring about miracles and innovations in the building of a knowledge-based economic power.
The present era is the age of science and technology and knowledge-based economy.
Science and technology play the role of an engine steering the era and serve as a powerful driving force to dynamically build a thriving socialist nation.
The prosperity of the country and the nation is guaranteed when the country rapidly develops its science and technology by thoroughly implementing the party's line of attaching importance to science and technology.
It is the party's intention and requirement to leap forward to the world-standard by skipping the phases covered by others in the development of science and technology.
The DPRK's scientists and technicians are achieving such signal successes as increasing the scientific and technological potentials of Songun Korea through a drive for the development of overall science and technology, while channeling primary efforts into the development of core essential technologies under the wise leadership of the party.
The article calls upon all the officials, scientists, technicians and working people to thoroughly implement the party's line of attaching importance to science and technology, deeply aware that the development of science and technology assures the prosperity of the country and the nation.
