Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army inspected KPA Navy Unit 155 honored with the title of O Jung Hup-led Seventh Regiment.
This unit had been visited several times by President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and its history is associated with the traces of the revolutionary activities.
Looking round the historic mementoes and materials, the Supreme Commander recalled with deep emotion those days when the President led the building of the Navy.
The President had worked heart and soul for the founding of naval forces and their strengthening and development until the last moments of his life just since the liberation of the country and under his wise leadership and deep care the Navy of the DPRK could develop into matchless, invincible forces, Kim Jong Il said, adding: The undying revolutionary feats of the President for the building of the Juche-based navy will shine long in the history of the nation.
The Supreme Commander stressed the need to well preserve the mementoes and materials representing the great guidance of the President and intensify the education with them as they are a precious heritage of revolution which should be handed down for ever along with the history of the KPA Navy.
Then, he acquainted himself with the performance of the unit’s duty and watched sailors in training before advancing the important tasks that would serve as guidelines in further strengthening the naval forces.
Our socialist fatherland is impregnable as its seas are firmly safeguarded by the brave sailors who regard as their immovable faith the spirit of devotedly defending the leader, the spirit of becoming human bullets and bombs and the spirit of blowing themselves, he said.
He went to the education room, bedroom, mess, kitchen, non-staple food store, washroom and other places of the unit to pay deep attention to sailors’ service and living.
Special attention should be paid to the eating and sleeping conditions of sailors who are spending much of their time in rough seas, he said, stressing the need to provide better supply service to suit their characteristics.
He presented the servicemen of the unit with a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and posed for a picture with them.
He was accompanied by KPA Generals Ri Myong Su, Hyon Chol Hae and Pak Jae Gyong and Ri Yong Chol, member of the WPK Central Military Commission and first vice department director of the WPK Central Committee.
