Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

    Pyongyang, March 22 (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 DPRK, inspected sub-units of KPA Unit 604.
    He acquainted himself with the unit's performance of duty before watching its servicepersons' firepower training.
    After watching the training replete with the spirit of winning a sure victory, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that all the soldiers of the unit have been fully prepared as indomitable fighters capable of reliably defending the security of the country and the people.
    He highly appreciated the shining achievements made by the servicepersons of the sub-units in the past, noting that they have grown to be matchless combat ranks fully prepared politically and ideologically and in military technique through the strenuous efforts to carry through the military line of the WPK.
    Then he took warm care of the living of their servicepersons, going round an education room, a bedroom, a mess hall, a kitchen, a wash-cum-bath house, a non-staple food store, an outdoor resting place and other places.
    No details escaped him, ranging from entertainment and educational means and bedroom conditions to the processing of non-staple food and its variety and the quality of water in the wash-cum-bath house.
    Saying that TV sets and VCRs which the soldiers like to watch serve as good fellow travelers, he underscored the need to make a regular use of these important educational means so that they may watch films and keep abreast of news from the rear. He called on all the commanding officers to take care of the living of the soldiers with paternal love just as the commanding officers of the anti-Japanese guerrilla army did and thus provide better living conditions to the servicepersons whom the WPK values and loves so much.
    He had a photo session with the servicepersons of the sub-units. He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the WPK Central Committee.
