Pyongyang, November 26 (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 KPA Unit 781. He first saw materials on the unit's history of development. Noting that the unit has performed exploits in the defence of the country and in socialist construction, he called for steadily upholding its glorious tradition and adding shine to it.
He learned about the unit's performance of duty before looking round its combat and technical equipment.
Going round the servicepersons' hall, a library and other entertainment and educational facilities, he acquainted himself with how the ideological education is being conducted among them. It is good that the unit has successfully built entertainment and educational facilities and effectively operated them to prepare servicepersons as staunch fighters standing guard over the country, he said.
Walking the compound of the barracks, he highly appreciated the patriotic spirit of the servicepersons of the unit, pleased to know that they are keeping them neat and tidy and created a thick woodland by planting hundreds of thousands of trees inside and outside the compound. Every unit he visited is assiduously managing its economic life and making mountains and rivers of the country look beautiful, he said, adding that this stirring reality in the era of Songun is the shining fruition of ardent patriotism displayed by the servicepersons of the KPA.
He familiarized himself with the servicepersons' living, making the rounds of a mess hall, a kitchen, a non-staple food store, a food-processing room and other supply services facilities.
He highly appreciated the efforts made by the commanding officers of the unit, noting that they have gone among the soldiers to overcome difficulties and bottlenecks in reliance upon them and helped them solve knotty problems arising in their living in time, thus laying a good groundwork for their living even under the unfavorable geographical conditions and becoming a model for the whole army in the sideline farming, too.
He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the unit.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the C.C., the WPK.
