NK paper urges all-out efforts to maximize rice production


North Korea's Rodong Shinmun called for all-out efforts to maximize rice production this year.

Kim Jong-un suggested last year a frontal breakthrough strategy by securing "self-reliance" in many areas, including agriculture, to brace for a protracted fight against international sanctions.

"Whether to succeed in our frontal breakthrough strategy hinges heavily on how much we could consolidate the achievement we have already made in securing a high yield (of grains)," the paper said.

The paper propagated that "Loyalty to the party and patriotism to the nation can be expressed in how much contribution one can make to grains production."
