Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, inspected the May 27 Fishery Station and the January 8 Fishery Station run by the KPA which have made big fish hauls.
He visited the May 27 Fishery Station.
Saying that upon receiving a report that the fishery station was built on a modern basis and caught several thousand tons of sailfin sandfish in a recent few days, he came to the station before doing anything else, being eager to convey the news of big fish hauls to the people, the supreme leader noted with great satisfaction that he feasted his eyes on the picturesque fishery station and dwelling houses on his tour boat and a new fishing village has sprung up to be a spectacular scenery in the east coastal area.
Servicepersons successfully built all structures to be impeccable even in the distant future, he said, adding that the area has undergone a dramatic change within a year and he would take off his hat to the KPA’s fighting spirit and traits of emptying even a sea and flattening a mountain if it is a decision of the Party.
Looking at the visual aids floating in waters, he said the aids show how the KPA has implemented the Party policy that one can create a thing out of nothing when one’s mental power is mobilized. This year alone, the KPA has done great things not only on the front of restoring the flood-hit northern area but in other parts of the country and one of the keys to such feats is that it has properly conducted the precisely-targeted, frontline-style Party political work.
He went round the combined control room, cold-storage processing factory and cannery.
Noting he is satisfied to see modern sharp-freezing and deep-freezing equipment with storing capacity of several thousand tons installed at the station and all processes, including washing, sorting, supply and auto-weighing of fish, pouring of water, quick freezing and thawing, put on a streamlined and unmanned basis, and specifically a robot smartly transferring frozen fish, he said that a sure guarantee has been laid to provide service personnel and civilians with fresh fish all the year round while saving manpower and preserving sanitation.
He learnt about the situation of fishing, seeing with bright smile the scene of loading and unloading fish on the ship and big piles of frozen fish at storages.
Going round the hall of culture and a residential district of multi-storied flats to be used by fishermen, he highly appreciated that servicepersons had built them well as intended by the Party.
He had a photo session with officials and employees of the May 27 Fishery Station.
Then he toured the January 8 Fishery Station.
He feels very good and relieved of his fatigue, seeing heaps of stored fish enough to be supplied until September of next year, he said with pride, adding that the establishment of the station has borne fruit.
He gave a high appreciation of the station’s officials and fishermen who fulfilled their fishing plan for this year ahead of schedule, noting that they have made much effort to fishing with his and their mind to supply fish to children and old persons at orphanages and almshouses every day.
He had a photo session with officials and employees of the station.
He set forth the important tasks facing the fishing sector.
Accompanying him were KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, and Army Col. General So Hong Chan, first vice-minister of the People’s Armed Forces.
