Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) — Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, inspected a sub-unit of KPA Unit 205 honored with the title of O Jung Hup-led Seventh Regiment.
He acquainted himself with the sub-unit’s performance of duty before watching its servicepersons’ training.
He set forth tasks to be fulfilled to increase the sub-unit’s combat capability, greatly satisfied with the fact that the sub-unit has improved the quality of training by contriving and introducing efficient training apparatuses.
Then he went round a military lecture room.
He praised the sub-unit for having trained all its commanding officers and men into stalwart fighters by building the lecture room in a unique manner and effectively operating it.
He highly appreciated the great successes made by the sub-unit through its persevering and energetic endeavors to thoroughly implement the WPK’s policy of training, stressing that the primary revolutionary duty of the soldiers is to register successes in training.
He looked round the compound of the barracks, the educational room, bedroom, a mess hall, a wash-cum-bath house, a subsidiary food store, an outdoor resting place and other places.
He said this sub-unit has set an example not only in the combat and political training but in its management, greatly pleased with the fact that its commanding officers and men have spruced up the inside and outside of the barracks like a rest home and built well entertainment and logistic facilities through their concerted efforts.
It is very good that the sub-unit is giving the soldiers common knowledge about geography with the help of Korean and world maps in the educational room, he said, adding a serviceman can become a true soldier who can display patriotism and unhesitatingly lay down his life for the dear motherland only when he knows well about his native place and country.
Noting that the servicepersons’ sincerity and enthusiasm are most important for successfully doing the sideline farming, he said he would look forward to the good news that the sub-unit has reaped a bumper harvest by bringing about a fresh turn in the sideline farming this year as it had pledged.
He met with soldiers and had a warm conversation with them.
Highly appreciating their patriotic deeds, he noted that all the servicepersons of the KPA are the heroes in the era of Songun as they have devoted themselves to the party, the revolution, the country and the people, regarding it an honor, happiness and pride to be called soldiers.
He gave servicepersons of the sub-unit a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and had a photo session with them, expressing belief that they would creditably perform their mission and duty as standard-bearers and a shock force in upholding the WPK’s Songun policy.
