Electricity shortage acute in Korea

Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) --All the Korean people have stepped up production and construction from the beginning of the new year. But the electricity shortage still remains acute.
Electricity is essential for vitalizing the national economy this year.
Due to the electricity shortage, however, trains stop at irregular intervals and a complicated situation has been created in formation of trains and transport commanding.
It has caused an interminable vicious cycle in coal transport to power plants and electricity production.
Frequent stoppage of power supply and unstable voltage debase the quality of goods produced by factories and enterprises and brings difficulties to all sectors of the national economy.
The acute situation of electricity has also given inconvenience to the people's living.
The limited power supply to residential quarters interferes with the people's cultural and emotional life. Restaurants, bathhouses and other public service facilities cannot satisfy people's demand.
Problems have also been caused in the operation of trolley buses, streetcars and subway trains which play a great role in the traffic in the capital.
Long ago, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, with limited thermal and hydraulic power generating capacity, decided to push ahead with the building of its own nuclear power bases to meet the increasing demand of the country for electricity.
But the country's nuclear power industry has encountered U.S. obstructions from the outset.
If the United States did not kick up a "nuclear row" and the construction of an atomic power plant with a graphite-moderated reactors had been progressed by the country itself as scheduled, the electricity problem would have already been solved fully in the country.
The frozen nuclear power project has severely affected the country's electricity production, economic construction and people's living.
The Korean people are now working hard to carry out this year's tasks, overcoming with anti-U.S. sentiments the manifold difficulties caused by the electricity shortage.
