Pyongyang, April 10 (KCNA) -- Twenty years have passed since President Kim Il Sung made public the famous work "On Improving the Work of Protecting the Environment" on April 10, Juche75(1986), the day following the adoption of the "Law on Environmental Protection of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea". The President, in his work, advanced detailed tasks and ways for improving the work of protecting the environment. The Korean people take this opportunity to look back on the efforts the President, with an ardent patriotism, had bent to provide them with better living environment. After the country's liberation he paid a deep attention to the work of restoring the destroyed environment and improving people's working and living conditions. He saw to it to take positive steps for protecting the health of workers and residents from poisonous gas and harmful labor.
In those days when even one ton of steel was badly needed for the building of a new country, he said that no matter how valuable steel was, it could not be bartered for the lives of workers. And he determinedly instructed officials to blast away primitive furnaces.
He had always directed the primary attention to the environmental protection in building even a dwelling house or a factory.
Leader Kim Jong Il, true to far-reaching plan of the President, saw to it that the government was deeply concerned for the health of the people and the protection of environment and the content of the Law on Environmental Protection was further elaborated in line with the developing realities.
The DPRK, true to the intention of the peerlessly great men, is directing much effort to the land construction and launching a campaign for greening the whole country as part of the work, thus constantly improving environment.
