U.S. espionage flights against DPRK under fire
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists committed more
than 150 cases of aerial espionage against the DPRK in January, according to
military sources. Involved in the espionage were u-2 high-altitude strategic
reconnaissance plane, EP-3 special operation plane, E-3 commanding plane,
RC-12 and RC-7 tactical reconnaissance planes and EH-60 electronic warfare
helicopters.
    On Jan. 29 they sent more than 100 fighter bombers, pursuit and assault
planes, transport and reconnaissance planes to the sky above Tanyang, Wonju
and Phyongchang and on Jan. 16 and 24 they sent each day more than 150
fighter planes to the sky above Chunchon, Kaphyong, Ryoju and other areas of
South Korea to stage war exercises.
    Such espionage flights and war exercises clearly prove that the U.S.
imperialists are working hard to achieve their aggressive design any time as
soon as they conclude their "war against terrorism" in Afghanistan after
designating the DPRK as the main target of their next operation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

U.S. urged to pay for damage
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The committee for unveiling truth about
the Rogun-ri massacre said on Jan. 26 that it would bring the Rogun-ri mass
killings to the U.N. commission on human rights and strongly demand the U.S.
make an apology and compensation for the damage, according to the South
Korean newspaper Munhwa Ilbo. This organization urged the u.s. to make an
overall reinvestigation and compensation for the damage as BBC confirmed the
fact that the mass killings were organized crimes committed by orders.
    The U.S. forces indiscriminately massacred civilians in Rogun-ri,
Yongdong county, north Chungchong Province, in the 1950 Korean War.
    The committee held that although the U.S. tried to describe the Rogun-ri
mass killings as an "accidental case" the video tape on which what GIs
testified to the orders issued to kill civilians is recorded categorically
negated it, adding that "mass killings of civilians were a wanton violation
of the convention on war".

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remarks of "GNP" president condemned
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the "national alliance
for democracy and reunification" in South Korea reportedly released a
statement on Jan. 26 as regards the remarks made by Ri Hoe Chang, president
of the "Grand National Party", during his tour of the united states. Under
the title "Is Ri Hoe Chang a servant of the U.S.?" The statement said Ri did
not bother to utter words aimed at wrecking peace and stability on the
Korean peninsula and perpetuating national division. This is an
anti-national act, it said, and went on:
    Meanwhile, with bush's junket to South Korea at hand, he clamoured about
"reciprocity" and "verification" of the DPRK. It is typical sycophancy and
treachery intended to hurt the fellow countrymen with the help of outsiders.
    He fully reveals his ambition to become "president" by courting the U.S.
hardliners' support. This is an expression of the willingness to fawn on the
U.S. and unhesitatingly work as its servant to seize power, clean
indifferent to the interests of the nation.
    What is more intolerable is that even during his foreign tour he
expressed his persistent opposition to the June 15 joint declaration, the
statement said, adding:
    Ri Hoe Chang should stop letting loose such remarks against national
interests at once and make an honest apology to the nation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fullest play to noble revolutionary trait called for
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun today carries an
editorial on the noble revolutionary trait of the Korean people
single-heartedly united around leader Kim Jong Il. It says:
    Our society is a large family that holds Kim Jong Il in high esteem as
the father and enjoys the ties of kinship between the army and the people.
    Ours is the most solid, vital, promising and invincible society where
the great idea and spirit and noble revolutionary morality prevail.
    The whole army and all the people in the DPRK have held and followed him
in high esteem as the great father and displayed total dedication in putting
his purpose and intention into practice. This is the trait prevailing
throughout the society and all the people, united with each other on the
basis of the noble sense of revolutionary obligation and warm comradeship,
are devoting all their wisdom and energies to the building of a powerful
nation. 
    The hearts of our soldiers and people are filled with pure conscience
and sense of obligation to give only greater pleasure and satisfaction to
him, trusting and following him as their sun and their father.
    The idea and intention of the army are identical to those of the people
in holding the supreme commander in high esteem.
    That is why the revolutionary and militant trait and way of life of the
Korean people's army prevail in our society and everyone lives and struggles
as required by new morality and culture, emotion and optimism in the era of
army-based policy. 
    The relations of comradeship and sense of obligation among people have
reached the highest level in our society in the days of stern trial.
    The imperialists are resorting to vicious moves for military aggression
and economic blockade and working hard to debase the Korean people
spiritually and morally with corrupt idea and culture, but our society
remains unfazed.

U.S. germ warfare denounced
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- Public figures of different countries
denounced the germ warfare conducted by the U.S. in Korea. The U.S.
imperialists began using germ weapons in Korea while fleeing from the
temporarily occupied areas in the winter of 1950, the early period of the
Korean War. 
    They killed many Koreans by indiscriminately dropping insects containing
all sorts of epidemic bacteria all over the northern half of Korea on over
800 occasions from January 1952.
    Angel Castro Lavarello, chairman of the Peru-Korea Institute of Culture
and Friendship, in a statement said that these atrocities were objectively
proved on the spot by the fact-finding group of the international democratic
lawyers association, the international scientific and investigation groups
and confirmed by the testimonies made by POWs of the U.S. forces who
participated in this warfare.
    This notwithstanding, the U.S. has not yet admitted this barbarism
though a half century has passed since then. It is working hard to bring
again holocaust to the peoples in Korea and the rest of the world after
massively stockpiling all types of biological and chemical weapons enough to
exterminate humankind tens of times, he noted.
    Helmut Heid Weger, chief of the group for the study of the Juche idea of
Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il in Vienna, Austria, in a statement said that the
germ warfare committed by the U.S. in the Korean War was mass killings of
peace-loving civilians unprecedented in history as they were deliberately
perpetrated by the order of the U.S. brasshats at that time.
    The U.S. is well advised to officially admit its biological and chemical
warfare in Korea, make an apology to the Korean people and immediately
eliminate all nuclear, biological and chemical weapons stockpiled in South
Korea and its mainland, he stressed.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Attempt to conclude S. Korea-U.S. "agreement on investment" condemned
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The people's action against the world
trade organization in South Korea reportedly issued a statement on January
28 in protest against an attempt of the authorities to conclude a South
Korea-U.S. "agreement on investment." The statement said that the
"agreement" which the authorities try to conclude during bush's trip to
South Korea is, in essence, aimed at ensuring free investment of the U.S.
capital. 
    The authorities' propaganda that the South Korean economy can be
recovered through the investment of foreign capital is a lie to falsify the
reality and keep people blindfolded and this will only result in selling key
industries at cheap prices and opening stock markets and thereby putting the
economy into a chaos of constant instability, it noted, and went on:
    The action threatened to put up a stubborn struggle against the
authorities keen to accelerate neo-liberal restructuring through the signing
of the "agreement."

Doctor of paleontology Kwon Jong Rim
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- Dr. Kwon Jong Rim is a renowned woman
paleontologist in the DPRK. She has been engaged in the study of extinct
animals and plants for nearly 40 years. In this period she discovered
hundreds of species of fossil plants (ten odd species of worldwide
significance included).
    By deepening researches into them, she established and systematized
strata of the tertiary formation. And she set the paleontological standard
decisive of the geological times of the tertiary formation in the country
after classifying the development of ancient plant community into eight
courses. 
    She also clarified the relationship between the tertiary and the
contemporary plant communities, thus providing geo-historical preconditions
needed for improving the forests of the present times under a long-term
plan. 
    One of her feats is that she found out paleoclimatic conditions through
researches into fossil plants in the layer of bituminous coal seams in the
country including coal beds in Anju to open a vista for coal prospecting.
    She presented valuable papers such as "contrast between the tertiary
plant community and the layer with coal seams in our country" and "the
history of development of the cenozoic plant community and its relationship
with the contemporary plant community in our country".
    In this course she received the title of doctor in October 1999.
    Kwon was born in Seoul in January Juche 30 (1941) and came to the north
during the Korean War.
    She graduated from Kim Chaek University of Technology in march 1963 and
has so far worked as a member of the central mineral survey group, while
training several doctors and masters of paleontology.

Kanggye Chicken Farm
     Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The Kanggye chicken farm is situated
over 20 kms away from Kanggye city. The farm covers at least 780,000 square
meters and its total floor space is more than 27,400 square meters.
    All production processes ranging from egg laying, artificial incubation
and breeding to processing are computerized.
    There is a restaurant in Kanggye serving chicken soup of entrails.
    Popular are such food as boiled rice and soup of entrails, cockscomb
dish, chicken hoof jelly, fried chicken crop and others.
    The restaurant with a total floor space of 1,450 square meters was built
in national architectural style. It can serve over 1,000 visitors a day.

Silk output on upbeat
    Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- According to historical records,
silkworm breeding dates back to ancient times in Korea, and Korean ancestors
relied on the silk road in conducting political, cultural and economic
exchange with foreign countries. The age-old tradition of silkworm breeding
and silk production has been handed down through the centuries, and today
Jagang Province in northwestern Korea leads the inheritance.
    In this "province of sericulture," the Huichon silk mill is the centre
of cocoon and silk production.
    Since its inauguration in September 1988, the mill has maintained a high
level of output, to the great benefit of the people's living standards. Its
silk fabrics, soft to the touch and vivid in colour, are produced under the
brand "CCR", well-known in neighbouring countries and on the international
market. 
    Experts attribute the high quality of this brand to the age-old fame of
the local cocoons and pure water. In this province of rolling mountains and
steep ravines, the water is ideal for silkworm breeding and cocoon
production. 
    The province was selected as a base for sericulture after a government
decision to localize and specialize agricultural output, and the province
has since made tangible progress in the cultivation of mulberry trees and
cocoon production. In particular, the proportion of good-quality cocoons has
shown a considerable increase. The mill's major outputs of raw silk and
by-products are widely available for consumption.
    It employs up-to-date production processes from cocoon sorting to silk
reeling, and runs an effective transportation system to bring the cocoons
from suppliers. 
    The Huichon silk mill is now concentrating on greater efficiency and
technical upgrading, as required by the torch of Ranam.

    Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The state bureau for quality control of
the DPRK and the state committee of the Russian Federation for
standardization and metrology signed a plan for cooperation in the domain of
standardization, metrology and quality for 2002-2003 in Pyongyang today.
Present at the signing ceremony were Kim Hyong Chol, director of the state
bureau for quality control, officials concerned and members of the
delegation of the state committee of the Russian Federation for
standardization and metrology led by its vice-chairman Vladimir N. Krutikov.
    The plan was signed by Choe Kwang Rae, vice-director of the bureau, and
vice-chairman of the Russian committee V.N. Krutikov.
