[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] On Friday, North Korea's official newspaper announced an all-out effort to follow leader Kim Jong-un's calls for an "80-day campaign," saying to focus on recovering from recent typhoons and manage economic challenges without outside help.

Kim held a meeting of the ruling Workers' Party and launched the "80-day campaign" to achieve the country's national and economic goals by the end of the year ahead of a rare party congress scheduled for January, earlier this month, "We cannot successfully achieve the massive and impending tasks facing us by the end of the year with routine supervision and a banal attitude," the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ruling party, said in an editorial. "We need to strictly eradicate our dependence and reliance on others that hurts our pride and hinders progress and boost production using our own raw materials and resources," the paper said.


The paper also emphasized the importance of scientific research based on its "own wisdom" to solve the technological problems raised in the process of the ongoing campaign against the coronavirus. He declined any outside help, despite damage from recent heavy downpours, saying that accepting foreign aid could heighten the risk of coronavirus infections.
