"He (Kim) underscored the need to advance socialist construction by dint of self-supporting national economy suited to the specific local conditions of our country based on our efforts, technology and resources under the uplifted banner of self-reliance, so as to deal a blow to the hostile forces who go with bloodshot eyes miscalculating that sanctions can bring the DPRK to its knees," the KCNA said.
