North Korea must develop science, technology to counter sanctions: party daily
Rodong Sinmun claims "hostile forces" are seeking to push DPRK into pursuing economic liberalization

North Korea's party daily on Monday called on the country to develop its science and technology to fight sanctions imposed by "hostile forces," dismissing the idea of the DPRK accepting economic incentives in return for abandoning nuclear weapons.

In a special article, the Rodong Sinmun, which serves as the chief organ of the country's ruling party, said North Korea needs to make "continuous advancement and development in science and technology as well as education" in order to push ahead with the "grand march of self-reliance."
