Oct. 26 (UPI) — Kim Jong Un’s past pledge to bring improvements at North Korean farms and factories is being highlighted on the website of the regime’s top university.
Kim Il Sung University recently posted online a past statement from the North Korean leader calling for the widespread application of science and technology, South Korean news service NK Economy reported Monday.
The remarks from Kim were made in June 2013, when the leader visited a machine plant and met with a local official who directly requested technical documents that could go toward improving production, the university said. Kim agreed to the request, and the leader’s decision has been beneficial to other North Korean entities, according to the university.
“Today, in North Korea’s factories, enterprises and cooperative farms, science and technology dissemination offices are well established, demonstrating enormous vitality in the struggle for science and technology talent,” the North Korean statement
