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

    Pyongyang, April 5 (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 an artillery company of KPA Unit 821 situated on the front. He learned about the company's performance of its duty before watching a firepower drill of its servicepersons.
    He watched them undergo training in the spirit of hitting all enemy targets with burning hatred for the U.S. imperialist aggressors, the brigands. He set forth the tasks to be tackled to increase the company's combat capability, greatly satisfied to learn that all of them have been so fully prepared as a-match-for-a hundred fighters that no formidable enemy dares provoke them. He enjoyed a field recreation party held by the artillerymen at the fire position during break.
    Seeing every drill ground replete with the militant spirit and revolutionary optimism of a-match-for-a hundred soldiers, he said that all of the KPA servicepersons are strong in idea and faith. Our motherland will always shine as a fortress of socialism as the inflexible ranks of human bullets and bombs are standing guard over the forefront of the anti-imperialist military front, he added.
    Then he went round an education room, a bedroom, a mess hall, a kitchen, a non-staple food store and other places and highly praised the company for the successes made in its management.
    It is very good that the company has provided its soldiers with affluent diet by successfully organizing diverse sideline work to suit the features of the area, he said, stressing the need to continue to give full play to the trait of tenaciously managing its economic life.
    He gave the servicepersons of the company a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and had a picture taken with them.
    He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the Central Committee of the WPK.
