Pyongyang, July 6 (KCNA) — The riverside of Taedong in the central part of Pyongyang will take on more beautiful appearance.
Kim Jong Il recently gave an instruction to more beautifully spruce up the riversides of Taedong as required by the new century.
The builders of Pyongyang held a meeting at Kim Il Sung Square on Wednesday at which they vowed to successfully carry out the grand plan of Kim Jong Il to more beautifully spruce up Pyongyang.
Present at the meeting were Choe Jong Gon, minister of City Management, Pang Chol Gap, chairman of the Pyongyang City People’s Committee, other officials and working people.
At the meeting speakers said that Kim Jong Il’s instruction reflects his noble intention to more beautifully spruce up Pyongyang and provide the people with good conditions for their cultural and emotional life, referring to the undying dedications made by the peerlessly great persons to turning the banks of the River Taedong into recreation grounds for people.
President Kim Il Sung unrolled a long-range plan to build Pyongyang into a magnificent modern city and provided on-the-spot guidance to the embankment project of the river, converting the banks of the river into cultural recreation grounds for people, they noted, and continued:
Kim Jong Il visited the project on April 28, Juche 48 (1959) and on other occasions. He worked hard there like an ordinary builder, leading other students in their labor drive. He wisely steered the construction of the West Sea Barrage and several other barrages in order to turn the river into a river of bliss free from flood damage for good.
It is a very important work to powerfully demonstrate the heroic spirit of the Korean people and the might of Songun Korea to build Pyongyang into a more magnificent and fashionable city as required by the new century, they said, calling upon the officials, builders and working people in the city to turn out as one in the efforts to qualitatively finish the on-going projects in a brief span of time.
