Pyongyang, November 12 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, inspected a company honored with the title of the three revolution red flag under KPA Unit 1188. He dropped in at a military lecture room to acquaint himself with its soldiers' training.
He said that to have good training is a sure guarantee for increasing the combat capability, expressing satisfaction over the fact that the company is undergoing a regular effective training to acquire a high level of military technique and combat capacity after successfully building a lecture room. Looking at dozens of persimmon trees heavily laden with persimmons standing in rows in the compound of the barracks, he noted that it is really spectacular scenery. He praised the servicepersons for having created an orchard around the company.
Going round a bedroom, a mess hall, non-staple food stores full of materials for preparing subsidiary food produced in sideline fields and stores for the sideline job and barns, he was greatly pleased to learn that the company has provided good conditions for its servicepersons' living. After learning about the preparations made by the company for wintering, he underscored the need to make thorough-going preparations for winter so that the soldiers might live in warm rooms even in cold winter.
Inspecting a meeting held in the open-air resting place by the company to hear soldiers' impressions of what they have read, he highly praised the company for conducting a unique and effective political work the way the anti-Japanese guerrilla army did.
Revolutionary literary and art works are an important means for providing the young soldiers with ideological and moral pabulum, he said, calling upon all the servicepersons to read more revolutionary novels and steadily cultivate themselves by learning from the noble spiritual world of their heroes. He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the company.
He was accompanied by Vice Department Director of the Central Committee of the WPK Hwang Pyong So.
