In the speech the respected Comrade

He underlined the need to create an occasion of an epochal turn in socialist construction by setting it forth as an urgent task before the times to ensure that the state economy makes a shift to independent and overall development and by organizing powerful struggle.
The government of the Republic should correctly set up the state plans for the independent and overall development of the national economy and powerfully promote it while creating mature conditions for realizing them on its own initiative and provide proper guidance to fields and units staying behind so that they can clearly set up long-term goals and phased plans to put their own fields on a world level and carry them out in a persistent way, he said.
An issue that needs priority settlement in the economic work at present is to ensure the satisfactory production and provision of raw and other materials, power and equipment, he said, stressing the need to firmly maintain the principle of giving precedence to the development of metal industry and chemical industry, which constitute basic production fields in providing raw materials to major fields of the national economy, over the overall economic development.
Comrade Kim Jong Un underscored the need to scrupulously take economic and technical measures to keep the production going at a high rate at the major iron works, steel plants and iron mines and simultaneously and dynamically push forward the capacity expansion and modernization work in the sector of the metallurgical industry for meeting the statewide demand for iron and steel in the near future.

He stressed the need to increase the national investment in the sectors of electricity and coal industry and put efforts to strengthening the material and technical foundations to fully meet not only the urgent demands of the national economy but also its future demands.
He indicated the task for comprehensively remodeling the railways, pilot of the national economy, and underscored the need to develop the machine industry and IT industry to make them play important roles in realizing the home-production of equipment and the modernization of the national economy.
Saying that it is an urgent demand to remodel the existing production processes in various fields of the national economy and expand their production capacities for strengthening the independence of the state economy, he underscored the need to thoroughly carry out the planned work for expanding production capacities by concentrating forces on the major projects of great significance in the national economy under the Party's strategy of readjustment and reinforcement.
He said that the construction sector should complete the construction of apartment houses in Songsin and Songhwa areas within this year and successively begin the construction of 10 000 flats of the next phase, and thus build another modern district and street and usher in a new turning point of capital city construction by positively introducing new architectural styles.
He stressed the need to finish the construction in the Komdok area which is being propelled by the People' Army in a short span of time and build dwelling houses in provinces, cities and counties on a large scale to make all the people enjoy a highly civilized life in wonderful houses.
He underscored the need to correctly map out the nationwide master plan for land development and implement the land management including forest and water conservation in provinces, cities and counties in a responsible way to fundamentally remove the danger of flood damage, spruce up the ecological environment of the country and propel the mid-term and long-term greening and growth plan in a substantial way for raising the level of city greening in the period of the five-year plan.
Noting that the decisive improvement of guidance and management of the economic work in the present period arises as an urgent task in strengthening the independence of the state economy and displaying its potential, he referred in detail to the methodological issues arising for the Cabinet to fully play its role as the control tower for carrying out the five-year plan for the national economic development.

Noting that the most important and vital revolutionary task in achieving new development in socialist construction at present is to stabilize and improve the people's living, he indicated in detail the policy issues for it.
To provide the people with a stabilized and affluent living, a primary effort should be put on the agricultural development, he said, expressing the unshakable will and determination of our Party to completely remove the food problem in the near future by rapidly developing agricultural production.
He stressed the need to correctly work out and thoroughly implement the agricultural development strategy for achieving the stable and continuous development of agricultural production despite any unfavorable weather and climatic conditions, in particular, solve the issue of seeds with a focus on breeding and improving high-yielding seeds that stand disastrous abnormal weather.

He said that the agricultural sector should positively study and apply new advanced farming techniques and methods including the good and rational control of the species distribution and sowing period as one of measures for minimizing the damage by disastrous weather, and broadly organize and conduct the work for sharing and disseminating the good successes and experience of the units going ahead.
And he mentioned the need to set it as an important policy task to establish the scientific water management system and resolve the water problem, to adjust and reinforce all irrigation structures, equipment, reservoirs and waterways, and manage the water in a scientific way to suit to the weather and climatic conditions so as to prevent the damage by drought and flood and fully provide water needed for farming.
He called for decisively increasing goats and cattle and massively conducting the movement for breeding rabbits as an all-people one as required by the Party's policy of obtaining meat from grass in the sector of stockbreeding, and paying attention to lowering the feed consumption unit to the utmost and improving the anti-epizootic work.
Especially, the work for implementing the Party's new childcare policy should be waged in a substantial way to treble the nationwide milk production, develop the milk processing technology and thoroughly ensure the quality of dairy products, he said, and went on:
Comrade Kim Jong Un indicated in detail the issues of intensifying the state assistance to the agricultural field, sprucing up food administration stations in cities and counties and updating the grain-processing.
He also clarified the important plans and ideas of promoting the development of local construction and face-lifting the socialist rural areas by adopting the unconditional supply of cement by the state to cities and counties from next year as a policy and law.
He referred to political tasks for improving the people's material and cultural life by developing light industry.
Saying that it is the most urgent task arising in the life of the people at present to produce more necessities demanded by the people and supply them by operating the light industrial factories in full capacity, he called for unconditionally keeping the state supply of raw and other materials needed for producing mass consumption goods more than six months ahead.
He said that the light industrial field should adopt it as an important policy-oriented issue to ensure domestic production of materials and recycling, while thoroughly relying on science and technology.
Putting a particular stress on enhancing the spirit of service for the people in producing consumer goods, he set it as an important task for the light industrial field to improve the quality of consumer goods, increase the kinds of products and lower the cost.
He called for bringing earlier the completion of the projects of local industrial factories in Kimhwa County of Kangwon Province which are being remodeled and standardized on an experimental basis and completing in a short period the technical modernization of local industrial factories in cities and counties across the country on the basis of the experience gained in remodeling.
He also indicated the ways for fully tapping materials for the light industry in local areas to increase consumer goods, putting the production of August 3 mass consumption goods and daily necessaries production on an active basis and enhancing the role of socialist commerce.
The fishing sector should accelerate the modernization and overhaul of fishing boats and fishing tackle, catch a lot of fish through an intensive fishing campaign and enrich the people's diet by producing various kinds of processed marine products including canned fish, he noted.
He also called for protecting and managing marine resources in a planned way, keep strict supervision and control over the acts of destroying marine resources, waging a vigorous campaign for stocking the seas, rivers and lakes with fries and conducting fish farming and culture massively so as to produce more marine products.
Saying that the civilization level of the country is an important criterion for appraising the national strength and a symbol of its prosperity, development and future, he clarified the important issues arising in developing all fabrics of socialist culture such as science, education and public health.

He said that the scientific research field should regard it as the core, main assignment and priority task to immediately resolve the urgent sci-tech problems in economic construction and people's living, step up the research and development for it and introduce its successes into practice in order to gain actual benefits.
Saying that it is one of the very important tasks facing the government of the Republic to turn the country into an advanced country in education, he called for opening up a new period of development in socialist education, guided by the Party's policy of attaching importance to education and talents.

Noting that it is the top-priority right of a sovereign state to bolster the national defence power and the existence and development of our own-style socialism would have been absolutely unthinkable without the steady strengthening of the national defence power,
He underscored the need to strengthen the socialist legal system, further improve the function and role of people's power as required by the times and thus consolidate our politico-ideological position and class position in every way.
People's power organs should make sure unconditional service for the people run through all their activities in conformity with their duty, direct them towards the realization of the will, demand and interests of the people and never allow any slightest practices and elements against the nature of the people-centered socialist system, he said.
He noted the methods to build up the ranks of power organ officials with men of ability, who will conduct every work in a brave and innovative way with high Party spirit, revolutionary spirit and loyalty to the people, rationally rearrange the structure and work system of power organs and thus make our people's power fulfill its role as a political weapon dynamically advancing the cause of socialism.
He said that different military drills and arms buildup under the pretext of "containing" the DPRK have become conspicuous in south Korea and dishonest remarks and behaviors getting on our nerves and provoking us regardless of time have been heard from it.
Noting that the south Korean authorities are bent on begging external support and cooperation while clamoring for international cooperation in servitude to the U.S., he said that as regards the issue of declaring the termination of war proposed by south Korea recently, though the termination of war is declared, hostile acts would be continued and, therefore, unexpected different clashes repeated, arousing the anxiety of all the fellow countrymen and international community only, as long as there remain factors, the apple of distrust and confrontation between the north and the south, intact.
It is the invariable demand repeatedly explained by us to ensure the respect for each other and withdraw the partial view, unfair and double-dealing attitude and hostile viewpoint and policies towards the other side before declaring the termination of war, and this is an important task to be settled beforehand in order to control the inter-Korean relations and open up a bright future, he noted.
Pointing out to the attitude of the south Korean authorities who have shown no sign of change while ignoring and neglecting the sources of aggravated inter-Korean relations though they are well aware of them, he said that now the inter-Korean relations stand at the crossroads of serious choices-either to advance toward reconciliation and cooperation after warming the present cooled-off relations or to suffer from national division amid a vicious cycle of confrontation and advanced the principled matters for the fundamental settlement of the north-south relations.
It is important for the south Korean authorities to change its confrontational and habitual attitude toward our Republic, keep the stand of national independence through practices, not with words, deal with the inter-Korean relations with a view to settling the essential matters and give weight to and sincerely implement the north-south declarations, he stressed.
Comrade Kim Jong Un noted that we have neither aim nor reason to provoke south Korea and no idea to harm it and it is necessary for south Korea to promptly get rid of the delusion, crisis awareness and awareness of getting harmed that it should deter the north's provocation.
He expressed the intention to see to it that the north-south communication lines that had been cut off due to the deteriorated inter-Korean relations are restored first from early October as part of the efforts for realizing the expectations and desire of the entire Korean nation to see the earlier recovery of the north-south relations from the present deadlock and durable peace settling in the Korean peninsula.
He analyzed the current international political situation and underlined the need for the field in charge of foreign affairs to more proactively and positively cope with the eventful ever-changing external environment.
Saying that there now exist not a few serious crises and challenges facing the world but the fundamental danger comes from the U.S. and its vassal forces' high-handed and arbitrary practices that destroy the foundation of international peace and stability, he noted that the current international situation is mainly characterized by the fact that it has got more complicated as the structure of the international relations has been reduced to the structure of "neo-Cold War" due to the U.S. unilateral and prejudiced bloc-forming style external policy.
Pointing out that the U.S. remains utterly unchanged in posing military threats and pursuing hostile policy toward the DPRK but employs more cunning ways and methods in doing so, as proven by the deeds done by it over the past eight months since the emergence of its new administration, he said that the U.S. is touting "diplomatic engagement" and "dialogue without preconditions" but it is no more than a petty trick for deceiving the international community and hiding its hostile acts and an extension of the hostile policy pursued by the successive U.S. administrations.
He tasked the field in charge of foreign affairs with concentrating on providing tactical measures for thoroughly implementing the strategic policy of the DPRK government toward the U.S. on the basis of strictly studying and analyzing the present U.S. administration's stand on the DPRK, the prospects of the U.S. political situation and ever-changing international balance of forces within the framework of their correlations.
He urged the field in charge of foreign affairs to put primary efforts into the work for firmly protecting the sovereignty of the country and its independent development interests while proactively coping with the international political situation and the surrounding environment that get more and more unstable.
He affirmed that the DPRK government will as ever develop its good neighborly relations with all the countries in the world that respect its sovereignty and are friendly toward it, and fulfill its responsibility and role in the struggle for preserving peace and stability of the Korean peninsula.
Saying that all the people in the country entrust their destiny totally to the Republic, regarding it as the very one ensuring their worthwhile life, he noted that such great trust is the dearest and most valuable asset possessed by the WPK and the DPRK government and it is the most sacred and glorious obligation we assumed before tens of millions of citizens of the country to live up to the trust.
Solemnly evincing the iron will of the WPK and the DPRK government to remain boundlessly loyal to the great people and do their best to fulfill their weighty mission and responsibility, he ardently appealed to everyone to work hard for the prosperity of the great country DPRK, for happiness and wellbeing of the great people and for fresh development of Korean-style socialist construction under the uplifted slogan of "The People Are God", single-minded unity and self-reliance.
The important policy speech made by him at the session is an undying program that powerfully accelerates the development of Korean-style socialist construction by injecting great vitality and courage into the all-people struggle for attaining the goals for victory set by the 8th Congress of the WPK and enhancing the fighting efficiency of the state power organs in an all-round way.
The full text of the historic policy speech will be published and distributed among party organizations and working people's organizations, people's power organs, armed forces organs, judicial and prosecutorial organs and public security organs at all levels and organs in charge of south Korean and foreign affairs.
Attentively listening to the important policy speech of him wisely clarifying the policy tasks of the Party and the DPRK government for putting the Korean-style socialist construction on a new stage of development and providing the people with happier and more civilized life with his brilliant wisdom and through his energetic ideological and theoretical activities, the deputies to the SPA and observers expressed their full support with their enthusiastic applause, being overwhelmed by great excitement.
When he finished his speech, they burst into stormy cheers of "Hurrah!" again.
They extended the highest glory and respect to him who indicated the correct path for bringing earlier a new victory of socialist construction by breaking through the manifold challenges and difficulties, while faithfully carrying forward and developing the independent state-building idea and exploits of President
They hardened their firm pledge to contribute to ushering in an era of vigorous progress and dynamism by fulfilling the heavy responsibilities and missions for the state and the people, upholding the great struggle policy for the overall development of the DPRK as a banner of invincibility.
At the second-day sitting of the session Deputies Jon Hyon Chol, Ri Hang Gol, Choe Hui Thae, Kim Chol Ha, Hwang Man Bok and Paek On made speeches on the first, second and third agenda items.
They said the law on development of city and county and the law on provision of education of young people to be newly enacted and the law on the plan of national economy to be amended and supplemented are of important significance in realizing the idea and intention of the WPK to turn the country into the most dignified country with a bright future in the world and into a powerful socialist nation where all wishes of the people come true.
When the cities and counties turn into the strong fortresses for the overall development of the country and all the people come to be responsible for the education of the youth and the planned and proportionate development of the national economy is ensured, the Juche character and independence of our socialist country will become stronger and the advance of the revolution toward a new victory accelerate, they added.
