Pyongyang, July 15 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided field guidance to the successfully reclaimed Taegyedo Tideland.

After being briefed on the reclaimed tideland before a large map showing its panoramic view, he made the rounds of gigantic breakwaters that stretch across the sea and a vast expanse of the reclaimed tideland for hours to learn in detail about the tideland reclamation.

He highly praised the builders and their helpers for having successfully built one more great structure in the era of the Workers' Party by displaying popular heroism and matchless devotion despite violent natural challenge. He extended the deepest special thanks to them.

The builders have completed a great nature-remaking project as vast as the project of the West Sea Barrage, he said, adding that this marvelous miracle is the precious fruition of the persevering will of the Korean people to build a thriving nation on this land at any cost by their own efforts and with their own technology and a striking demonstration of the inexhaustible mental power of the heroic Korean people single-mindedly united around the Party.

He bestowed upon the builders such great honor as personally proposing the conferment of Order of Kim Il Sung upon the North Phyongan Provincial Tideland Reclamation Complex for creditably carrying out the behest of President Kim Il Sung by completing the project and Kim Il Sung Prize on the design for the reclamation of the Taegyedo Tideland.

He went round paddy fields in the reclaimed tideland to acquaint himself with the farming there. Very pleased to hear the report that the grain yield is on the increase in the above-said fields every year, he indicated ways to successfully do farming on the reclaimed land.

Saying that the reclamation of the tideland is an important work for the prosperity of the country, he advanced highly important tasks to be fulfilled to undertake the project for tideland reclamation in a bigger way in the future.

He called upon the workers of the complex to complete the second phase project for reclaiming the Kwaksan Tideland and wind up the construction of setups left unfinished in the reclaimed tideland in a short span of time by displaying the same spirit and mettle as done in the days of reclaiming the Taegyedo Tideland.

He showed such great loving care as solving the problem of vehicles needed for the project, stressing the need for the complex to wage a strenuous drive to obtain more areas of new land, not slackening the high spirit displayed by the complex to complete the Taegyedo Tideland reclamation project.

It is necessary to pay state attention to the tideland reclamation as the projects to be undertaken in the future are difficult and vast nature-remaking ones, he said, underling the need to take a thorough measure to provide everything necessary for the projects.

He had a photo session with the labor innovators of the complex.

He was accompanied by Kim Phyong Hae, chief secretary of the North Phyongan Provincial Committee of the WPK, Jang Song Thaek, vice-chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and department director of the C.C., the WPK, and Kim Kyong Hui and Thae Jong Su, department directors of the C.C., the WPK and Ri Jae Il, first vice department director of the C.C., the WPK.
