North Koreans at country-wide mass rallies on Tuesday and Wednesday pledged their support for Pyongyang's new push to "break through the barriers," the country's state media reported Thursday.

Workers and university students attended rallies in Kangwon, North Phyongan, South Hamgyong, and Ryanggang provinces, according to party daily the Rodong Sinmun, where they were said to have committed to goals set by the country's leadership at a key party plenum last month.
