    Pyongyang, March 5 (KCNA) -- The land of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea has taken on a new look suitable to the features of the powerful socialist country. Large-scale standardized fields of the country provide a glimpse of imperishable feats performed by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il for a solution to the agrarian issue in the country. Right after the liberation of the country from the Japanese colonial rule, Kim Il Sung wisely directed preparations for a successful solution to an agrarian reform, considering it to be a primary task in the anti-imperialist, anti-feudal democratic revolution.
    On March 5, Juche 35 (1946) he promulgated "Law on Agrarian Reform in North Korea" and set forth the slogan "Land to the tillers!", regarding it as the basic principle to let the peasants possess land.
    The successful agrarian reform put an end to the feudal land ownership and the exploiting system in the country so that the peasants could free themselves from the medieval exploitation and subordination and realize their long-cherished desire for land.
    The President also carried out agricultural cooperativization and brought land to socialist cooperative management from individual one as required by the developing revolution.
    His far-reaching plan of land development has been creditably implemented by Kim Jong Il.
    He, considering it to be a long-range cause for an ultimate solution to the agrarian issue and an important undertaking for the building of a great prosperous powerful nation to completely change the appearance of land in the socialist country, started a new history of large-scale land rezoning in May 1998.
    Over the past six years servicemen and people rezoned more than 284,800 hectares of fields in Kangwon, North Phyongan, South Hwanghae, South Phyongan and other provinces.
