PYONGYANG, April 23 (Xinhua) -- Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), stressed self-reliance in farm production for the army when inspecting an army farm on Saturday, official media reported Sunday.
The Korean Central News Agency reported that Kim visited a pig farm owned by the airforce of the Korean People's Army (KPA) in northwestern DPRK's Thaechon County to inspect food supply for pilots.
He praised the farm for showing patriotism by applying domestically made equipment and adopting modern scientific methods in production, saying: "We can be well off by doing our own way."
Calling the farm "an icon stockbreeding base of the country," Kim said the KPA is leading the way in implementing the Korean Workers' Party's policy on realizing domestic production.
The DPRK is under the United Nations (UN) economic sanctions imposed after the country carried out successive nuclear and missile tests in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.
