Pyongyang, February 9 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il visited again the February 8 Vinalon Complex put on modern lines and watched vinalon cotton being churned out in an endless stream.

He watched varieties of vinalon products including vinalon cotton piled up in stacks in the vinalon band fiber packing ground.

Taking vinalon cotton in his hand and looking at it again and again for a long while, he said vinalon cotton is excellent raw material for textiles as it is as good as cotton and wool. He was greatly satisfied to see Juche-based cotton being produced in large quantities.

Greatly pleased that it has now become possible to supply more quality vinalon fabrics to the Korean people as desired by President Kim Il Sung, he said that the start of mass production of vinalon signifies a great auspicious event for the whole country as it is another great victory won by the Korean people in building a thriving nation.

He noted that the laudable successes made by the officials, workers and technicians of the complex clearly proved that the mental power of the Korean people equipped with the spirit of single-minded unity, the strong spirit of national dignity, the spirit of self-reliance, warm love for the future and the spirit of devotion serve as a motive force to win all victories and the master key to them.

The workers of the complex have built the modern vinalon factory based on the latest science and technology by their own efforts and with their own technology and made a decisive breakthrough towards settling the issue of clothing, thereby making it possible to preserve and glorify the leadership feats of the President, the founder and pioneer of the vinalon industry, he said. He highly appreciated their shining feats once again and extended special and deepest thanks to them.

He said that the complex carries key significance in materializing the plan of the WPK to radically improve the people's standard of living, setting forth the tasks to be fulfilled by the complex to mass-produce vinalon and other chemical goods.

He emphasized that in order to send greater quantities of clothing materials to the people it is necessary to operate the newly-built vinalon processes at full capacity with a view to keeping production going at a high rate and, at the same time, dynamically push ahead with the project for expanding the factory's capacity including the construction of a carbide furnace.

The happy events taking place in all fields of the revolution and construction one after another herald a rosy future of a thriving nation in which everything prospers, he noted, earnestly calling once again for glorifying this year, the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Party, as a year of great changes and thereby bringing about a decisive turn in building a great prosperous and powerful nation.

He was accompanied by Kim Yong Il, premier of the DPRK Cabinet, Thae Jong Su, chief secretary of the South Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK, Kim Kyong Hui and Jang Song Thaek, department directors of the WPK Central Committee, and other leading officials of the WPK Central Committee.
