Pyongyang, May 26 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, gave field guidance to the construction site of the Wonsan Youth Power Station.
He was greeted on the spot by senior officials of the province and the construction enterprise.
The province set the ambitious goal of constructing the power station with a huge capacity on its own efforts and has since pushed forward the project at a rapid tempo by focusing efforts on it.
The construction of a huge dam in Komithan River rich in water resources and the appearance of a large man-made reservoir would make it possible to build several terraced power stations producing a lot of electricity.
He was briefed on the construction before the panoramic map of the station.
Then he went round the construction site to acquaint himself in detail with the progress of the project.
He was greatly satisfied to see the nation’s one more edifice of eternal value rising, noting its site was chosen in a good place and its designing was done well in line with the principle of profitability.
He highly appreciated the merits of the members of the youth shock brigade and other builders, greatly pleased to learn that they have done a great deal of work in a short span of time by waging a high-pitched drive with ardent patriotism. He extended warm appreciation to all the builders who have devoted themselves to the prosperity of the country with loyalty.
Many new edifices are now appearing in different parts of the country to be handed down to posterity along with the era of Songun thanks to the devoted efforts of our servicepersons and people single-mindedly united around the Party, he noted, adding this stirring reality clearly proves the inexhaustible strength and strong mental power of our army and people fully determined to accomplish the cause of building a great prosperous powerful nation with flying colors.
Saying that the Wonsan Youth Power Station is of great importance in realizing the electrification in Wonsan City, he set forth important tasks which would serve as guidelines in completing its construction.
Underscoring the need to build the power station to win the admiration of posterity because it is an edifice of eternal value to be handed down to the generations to come, he called for paying special attention to ensuring the best quality of the construction.
It is very important for Kangwon Province to make an effective use of its rich hydro-power resources as it abounds in large and small rivers and streams and has a big rainfall, he said, underlining the need to thoroughly implement the WPK’s policy of massively constructing minor power stations along with large ones.
He expressed expectation and conviction that its builders would bring about a new turn in the construction by displaying popular heroism and matchless devotion and thus exalt their honor of being proud victors.
