NORTH KOREA - Kim Jong Il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), called on all the sectors and units of the country to raise more pigs, the official Rodong Sinmun daily said on Friday.

Mr Kim made such instructions while inspecting newly-built pig farms. He said it was of great importance to radically increasing the pork production to improve people's living.

He was satisfied that the farms were built on scientific basis through a vigorous technical innovation movement, and the economical way the farms operated as using excretion of domestic animals to produce organic composite fertilizers.
