Army-people joint meeting for tree planting held

Pyongyang, October 30 (KCNA) — An army-people joint meeting for tree planting took place at the Munsubong Revolutionary Site here on Friday as part of the nationwide campaign for autumn land management. The site is associated with the undying feats of the three commanders of Mt. Paektu.


A report was made at the meeting, which was followed by speeches.

The reporter and speakers said that over 50 years ago the three commanders of Mt. Paektu, considering the land management as an important work of eternal value for the Korean people’s happy life and the country’s development and prosperity, climbed Munsu Hill and planted trees there.

They called for learning from the patriotism of the revolutionary forerunners who dedicated their precious lives to the liberation of the country and the victory in the war, taking care of even a handful of earth, a tree and a blade of grass of the country, and devotedly planting trees so that they could be wealth of eternal value to be handed to posterity.

At the end of the meeting soldiers and working people heard an explanatory lecture on the revolutionary site.

Then they planted various species of trees.

The tree planting was followed by an art performance of soldiers and working people which helped strengthen the unity between the army and the people.
