    Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, inspected a company under KPA Unit 287. He learned about the company's performance of duty before watching its soldiers' firepower training.
    He set forth tasks to be fulfilled to increase the company's combat capability, expressing satisfaction over the fact that the commanding officers and soldiers of the company have acquired a high level of combat capacity to successfully perform their combat duty.
    The master key to being each a match for a hundred lies in intensifying the training, he said, underscoring the need to hold fast to the work for thoroughly implementing the WPK's policy on training.
    He looked after the soldiers' service and living with deep care, going round an education room, a bedroom, a mess hall, a kitchen, a non-staple food store, a wash-cum-bath house, a barn and other places of the company.
    He highly appreciated the successes made by the company, pleased to learn that it has provided its soldiers with good living conditions through its energetic endeavors to improve their material and cultural life.
    Noting that it is very important to strengthen every company, a basic combat unit and cell of the People's Army, he called for focusing sustained efforts on firmly building up the company.
    He spared time to watch an art performance given by soldiers of the company.
    After watching their performance replete with the militant spirit and strong appeal, the performance in which the staunch spirit of devotedly defending the leader was blended with lyricism based on noble patriotism, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the soldiers of the company are living and struggling like revolutionaries full of conviction of victory and optimism.
    He highly appreciated the noble spiritual world of the soldiers dedicating their precious youth to the Party and the revolution. He gave the soldiers of the company a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and had a photo session with them. He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the WPK Central Committee.
