The DPRK reiterates its active participation in the UNESCO’s future work to realize its noble idea, he said, and added:
It is important for the organization to strengthen education in the new century, too, on the basis of the successes already made and pay primary attention to rendering effective cooperation to the member countries in conformity with their specific conditions and the level of their educational development.
It is the right option made by the UNESCO that it proposed to the developing countries to confirm the priority areas for scientific development, shape national scientific and technological policies and strategies to suit their actual conditions and increase national capability for scientific researches to implement them and is planning projects for the increased regional and international cooperation for their realization.
We consider it necessary for the organization to take practical measures to equip the developing countries with urgently needed scientific research facilities, while paying greater attention to the training of scientists and technicians and technological cooperation to the developing nations.
He said that the DPRK joined the convention on the preservation of the world culture and natural heritage and has taken a number of steps to implement the convention.
