Pyongyang, April 2 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Friday editorially calls on all the people to bring about a decisive turn in the development of the nation's science and technology and accelerate the final victory in building a thriving nation under the leadership of the great Workers' Party of Korea.

The recent national meeting of scientists and technicians in the Songun era clearly manifested the unshakable will of the WPK to bring about a great change in the revolution and construction with a firm hold on the science and technology as well as the most revolutionary ideology and arms and turn the country into an invincible power and a genuine paradise for the people where everything thrives, the editorial says, and goes on:

Scientists and technicians of the DPRK are pace-setters who paved the way for the future with strenuous researches and painstaking efforts despite harsh trials and difficulties, cherishing the faith that science knows no border but they have the socialist country of Juche.

An epochal turn has been made in the development of the nation's science and technology and such eye-opening events as the completion of the Juche iron production system and the modernization of vinalon factory have been taking place one after another across the country to carry into practice the behests of President Kim Il Sung. This present stirring reality would have been unthinkable without the devoted efforts of scientists and technicians.

The ongoing drive for building an economic power represents a historic advance propelled by dint of science and technology. All the party members and other working people as well as scientists and technicians should steadily create events glorifying the Songun era by means of intelligence and technology. Herein lies the way for winning a great victory in the drive for great surge and bringing General Secretary Kim Jong Il's plan for building of a thriving nation into a brilliant reality.

Let us leap higher and faster, exploring latest technologies as required by the era of knowledge-based economy. This is a militant banner that should be upheld by us.

The editorial calls upon all the scientists, technicians and other people to intensify the scientific and technological revolution and thus put into practice the WPK's idea of pushing back the frontier of latest science and achieve a great victory in building a thriving nation.
