Pyongyang, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) intends to become a world aerospace power, a senior official of the National Aerospace Technology Authority (NATA), said on the occasion of the eleventh anniversary of that institution.

We have made considerable progress in the introduction of technologies for defense, the economy, and improving the livelihood of the population, he said.
