Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun Monday editorially calls for putting fresh spurs to a drive for implementing the decision of the 7th Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea by remaining intensely loyal to the Party’s idea of prioritizing science and technology like the scientists, technicians and officials in the field of defense industry.
Praising the defense industrial workers as Juche-type revolutionaries, true patriots and the most admirable heroes as they have devotedly carried into practice the WPK’s idea of building a Juche-based nuclear power and prioritizing science and technology, the editorial says:
Their painstaking efforts to develop perfectly the powerful Juche weapons such as new ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket cannot be characterized by a simple campaign of brains and technology, and it was a life-and-death struggle for paving the untrodden path.
Fully determined to defend the prestige of the Party Central Committee and bolster up the country’s military capability for self-defense with the sci-tech might, they successfully developed only in a few months the new-type high-thrust engine, whose development is considered in general to take ten years or 7 or 8 years at least, and gave birth to “Juche weapons” one after another.
When everyone and any sector and any unit of the country give priority to science and technology, world-startling events will take place in succession and the cause of building a socialist power will make steady progress.
