Pyongyang, November 3 (KCNA) -- One March day in Juche 98 (2009) General Secretary Kim Jong Il visited Ryongrim County, Jagang Province, early in the morning to go round the dam construction site of Huichon Power Station No. 1.

Reaching the site, he said that it was still chilly in the area although spring had come and that he was afraid of the soldier-builders' working conditions. An official told him that the leader was the first to visit the construction site, noting that even officials of the Cabinet had not yet come.

Listening to him, Kim Jong Il said that he had fallen into a habit of making long and rugged journeys to visit construction sites ahead of others. And he noted that it was revolutionaries' spirit and work attitude to unhesitatingly advance through thorny path formidable for others.
