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

    Pyongyang, April 6 (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 three-revolution red flag women's company of KPA Unit 292. He acquainted himself with the company's performance of duty before watching its soldiers' training.
    He learned about how the company is implementing its training program and set forth tasks to be tackled to put the training on a scientific and regular basis. Then he went 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, a barn and other places of the company.
    He highly appreciated the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance displayed by women soldiers, greatly satisfied to learn that they are leading an affluent life by creating good conditions for their living on their own.
    It is a great success that the commanding officers and soldiers of the company have remarkably increased its combat capability and successfully managed it in perfect unity and brought about a signal turn in the sideline farming, in particular, he said, adding that this radical change clearly shows the unlimited mental power and creative trait of the servicepersons who have taken the lead in cheerfully weathering out such stern trials as "the Arduous March", the forced march.
    He noted that their noble fighting spirit and trait serve as an example to be followed by the Korean women who like to make a revolution and wage a struggle. He spared time to watch an art performance given by servicepersons of the company. He gave the servicepersons of the company a pair of binoculars, a machine-gun and an automatic rifle as gifts before having a photo session with them. He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the WPK Central Committee.
