   Pyongyang, September 26 (KCNA) -- It is the consistent stand of the DPRK to develop the South-South cooperation, said Choe Su Hon, vice-minister of Foreign Affairs who is leading a DPRK delegation, on Sept. 22 when addressing a meeting of foreign ministers of G-77 held during the 61st session of the UN General Assembly. He clarified the viewpoint of the DPRK delegation in connection with the fact that the meeting would formulate the joint stand of G-77 on the main subjects on the economic and social fields presented to the 61st session of the UN General Assembly.
    He said:
    G-77 should boost solidarity and joint actions among its member nations to cope with evermore undisguised unilateralism and high-handed practices in the economic and social fields.
    G-77 should continue to spearhead the efforts of developing countries to boost the South-South cooperation.
    The DPRK hosted successful workshops on irrigation, use of hydraulic power, standardization and measuring for several developing countries in Asia and Africa in Pyongyang this year in close cooperation with the Secretariat of G-77 as it had promised at the Second South Summit.
    The DPRK will as ever fulfill its responsibility and obligation to establish a new international economic order based on justice, equality and impartiality and boost the South-South cooperation based on collective self-reliance and thus make a positive contribution to building a peaceful, prosperous and independent world.
