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

    Pyongyang, April 10 (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 sub-unit of KPA Unit 205 honored with the title of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment. He acquainted himself with the sub-unit's performance of duty before watching its servicepersons in training in a combined training hall. He set forth tasks to be tackled by the sub-unit to further increase its combat capability, expressing his satisfaction over the fact that it has improved the quality of the training by contriving and using efficient training apparatuses.
    He said that intensifying the military and political training is a basic way of building up matchless military power and the master key to preparing the soldiers as a-match-for-a hundred combatants, praising the sub-unit for having successfully built the military lecture rooms for practical use in a peculiar style and effectively operated them to train all the officers and soldiers into competent fighters. Then he went round an education room, a bedroom, a mess hall, a wash-cum-bath house, a barber's, a non-staple food store and other places to take deep care of the service and living of its servicepersons.
    He expressed great satisfaction and high appreciation to the commanding officers and soldiers of the sub-unit for having kept the inside and outside of the barracks neat and tidy like a rest home and constructed modern entertainment and educational and supply service facilities.
    Only those who know well about the beauty of the country and love it can lay down their lives to the fight for the Party and the leader, the country and the people without hesitation, he noted, and went on:
    The KPA intensely loyal to the WPK has brought about a signal turn not only in the ideological traits and morality and the military and political training but in its appearance as regular forces and the management of its units and all other aspects, thereby admirably performing its vanguard role as the main force of the revolution. These precious exploits performed by the heroic KPA provide a sure guarantee for winning the victory in the Juche-oriented revolution, he added. He gave the servicepersons of the sub-unit a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and had a photo session with them.
    He was accompanied by KPA Generals Ri Myong Su, Hyon Chol Hae and Pak Jae Gyong and First Vice Department Directors of the C.C., WPK Ri Yong Chol and Ri Jae Il and Vice Department Director of the C.C., WPK Hwang Pyong So.
