Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) -- One day in November, Juche 86 (1997) General Secretary Kim Jong Il inspected different units of the Korean People's Army from early morning.
It got dark when he climbed down from a forward command post on a snow-covered height.
He, however, told the officials accompanying him that he had one more unit to inspect.
With the officials being afraid it was too late to go to another unit, he said that be it ever so late, he wanted to visit a coastal unit as its servicepersons were taking much trouble, exposed to cold wind, to defend the country.
When Kim Jong Il arrived at the post, the servicepersons of the company were surprised by his night visit.
After exchanging greetings with them, he said he came to learn about their living condition.
He went round the barracks, mess, education room and other places of the company in the darkness for hours to take good care of their life.
He left the company at midnight.
