Analysing the trend of the prevailing present situation, he said the US's real intention is to seek its own political and diplomatic interests while wasting time in dialogue and negotiations and at the same time maintaining sanctions so as to weaken the DPRK. He stressed that we further hardened our resolution never to barter the security and dignity of the state and the safety of its future for anything else.
He said that the stalemate between the DPRK and the US cannot but assume a protracted nature as the US is raising demands contrary to the fundamental interests of our state and is adopting brigandish attitudes. He added that recently the US is talking about continued dialogue while peddling the issue of the resumption of the dialogue here and there, but this is just aimed at passing without trouble the year-end time limit set by us and stalling for time by evading a lethal attack, as it now finds itself in a tight corner, not out of the intention to withdraw the hostile policy toward the DPRK and solve issues through improved relations. On the other hand, the US has openly revealed its provocative political, military and economic maneuvers to completely strangle and stifle the DPRK. This is the double-dealing behavior of the brigandish US, he added.
He said that we will never allow the impudent US to abuse the DPRK-US dialogue for meeting its sordid aim but will shift to a shocking actual action to make it pay for the pains sustained by our people so far and for the development so far restrained.
It is true that we urgently need external environment favorable for the economic construction, but we can never sell our dignity, which we have so far defended as valuable as our own life, in hope for brilliant transformation.
The DPRK-US stand-off, which has lasted century after century, has now been compressed to clear stand-off between self-reliance and sanctions.
If there were not the nuclear issue, the US would find fault with us under other issues, and the US military and political threats would not end.
The present situation, warning of long confrontations with the US, urgently requires us to make it a fait accompli that we have to live under the sanctions by the hostile forces in the future, too, and to strengthen the internal power from all aspects.
He said there are not a few problems that need to be set right in state management, the economy and other fields from the viewpoint of strengthening our might.
He analyzed the present situation including state management and economic performance, which are insufficient for pulling and spurring the great cause of self-reliance and self-development and which fail to bring about a bold renovation but stay stagnant.
The victory of the revolution is inevitable, but it is not achieved without any difficulties and hardships, he said.
He continued, "If we do not put spur the struggle for bolstering the power for self-development while waiting for the lifting of sanctions, the enemies' reactionary offensive will get fiercer to check our advance.
"The more we bolster our own strength and create valuable wealth on the strength of self-reliance and self-sufficiency, the deeper the enemies will be driven into greater agony and the earlier the day of the victory of socialism will come.
"All the Party organizations and officials have to shoulder upon themselves the important duties entrusted to them by the times and turn out in the offensive for frontal breakthrough to foil the enemies' sanctions and blockade by dint of self-reliance.
"Let Us Break through Head-on All the Barriers to Our Advance!" - this is the fighting slogan the entire Party and all the people should put up today.
The key front in the offensive for frontal breakthrough today is economic, he said, setting it forth as an immediate task for the economic field at present to rearrange the economic foundation of the country and fully tap all the possible production potential and to fully meet the demand needed for the economic development and people's lives.
He advanced important tasks for putting in order the economic work system and order.
He set forth the fundamental ways for strengthening the Cabinet responsibility system, Cabinet center system, as the Cabinet is the nucleus of the state economic work system.
He advanced crucial issues in finding out the correct way for improving the planning to meet the actual requirements, keeping the overall balance between production and supply and decisively raising the confidence of the national economic plan.
Emphasizing that the Cabinet work is precisely the work of the Party Central Committee and the execution of the decision of the Party Central Committee is the Cabinet work, he made an anatomical analysis of the serious issues that need urgent solution in strengthening the state unified guidance and management of the economic work after the plenary meeting.
After setting forth the innovative measures and detailed plans for adjusting the overall state machinery to spur the economic development and to enhance the role of officials, he specified realistic ways for pushing forward the improvement of economic management based on them.
He specified the orientation of solving crucial issues for economic growth which should be pushed forward by the whole Party and state.
He set forth tasks faced by the major industrial sectors of the national economy.
He made the overall analysis of the evil practices and stagnation found in metal, chemical, power, coal, machine and building materials industrial fields, railway transport and light industrial field, and set forth one by one scientific and substantial measures to bring about a giant stride forward in the economic work.
He said that we have to correctly set up index-wise plans of ten long-term goals through scientific calculation to develop the country's economy on a stable and long-term basis and consolidate one by one the economic foundation of the country through the struggle to carry them out.
He stressed the need to drastically increase the agricultural production.
He called for improving science, education and public health.
