Pyongyang, July 5 (KCNA) — A rally of the Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces was held at the April 25 House of Culture Monday to vow to implement to the letter the joint slogans published by the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the WPK.
A report by Vice Marshal Kim Yong Chun, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army (KPA), was followed by speeches at the rally.
The reporter and speakers called upon all the servicepersons to turn out as one in the drive to carry through the tasks set forth in the joint slogans and create a new heroic epic in the Songun era with revolutionary enthusiasm and militant mettle.
They underlined the need to imbue the whole army with the revolutionary idea of Supreme Commander of the KPA Kim Jong Il, establish the commanding system and the revolutionary military discipline in the KPA whereby all the soldiers move as one true to his order, smash the enemy’s persistent moves for ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare and thoroughly preserve the ideological purity of the Songun ranks.
They stressed the need for all the servicepersons to count every second in training in hearty response to the slogan of training-first to be a-match-for-a hundred stalwart fighters. Should the enemy intrude into the sky, land and sea of the country even an inch, they will mercilessly wipe out the aggressors and achieve the cause of national reunification, they declared.
They noted that the “100-day campaign” is an all-out charge of loyalists to glorify the 60th founding anniversary of the WPK as a grand festival of victors and demonstrate the invincible strength and spirit of the KPA and people rallied close around the Party and the leader.
They called on all the servicepersons to fully display through the on-going great charge the might of the revolutionary army which has grown strong in thinking and faith under the care of the great illustrious commander of Songun.
Present there were Jo Myong Rok, director of the General Political Department of the KPA, Kim Il Chol, minister of the People’s Armed Forces, leading officials of the Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces and KPA soldiers.
