Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Workers' Party of Korea and people of the DPRK, inspected units under the Command of the KPA 4th Corps stationed in the southwestern sector of the front.
He inspected the 1st and 4th Battalions under KPA Unit 403 stationed in the forefront area.
He gave the service personnel of the battalions pairs of binoculars and automatic rifles as souvenirs before having photo sessions with them.
He inspected combat positions of the 4th Battalion to learn in detail about its combat preparations.
The battalion is a proud sub-unit well known to the world as it turned Yonphyong Island into the one in flames by retaliating against south Korean puppet warmongers' reckless shelling into territorial waters of the DPRK side to launch aggression through merciless shelling.
He highly appreciated the feats the soldiers performed by showing what the arms in the hands of the powerful revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu and the battle fought by it were like.
He went round a soldiers' bedroom and wash-cum-bath house of a company under the battalion and took deep care of their living.
After viewing the combat positions of the sub-unit in the light of terrains and combat preparation, he said the present deployment of the sub-unit was not suitable from a tactical point of view, setting forth a task to courageously transfer and deploy its forces in new positions.
He went round a soldiers' bedroom, education room and various other places of a company under the 1st Battalion to take warm care of the soldiers' living.
He inspected a forward command post of KPA Unit 688 stationed in a forefront area.
He mounted the forward command post where he learned about the deployment of reinforced forces and equipment of the unit defending Yonphyong Island of the south Korean puppet army.
Feasting his eyes on vast defence theatres in the forefront area and the land of the south whose sky is overcast with dark clouds of war due to the enemy's preparations for a new war of aggression such as Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises, he learned in detail about the terrains, the distribution of forces of the unit and its guard duty.
He put forward the important tasks which would serve as guidelines for increasing the combat capability of the unit in every way and consolidating the defence theatre as firm as a rock in view of provocations of the enemy.
He continued his journey to inspect a battalion under KPA Unit 493 stationed in a forefront area.
He mounted a watch post of a costal artillery battalion under the unit where he looked over Paekryong Island near from it and learned about its guard duty.
Asking if there is any change in the enemy's recent movements and how combat and technical equipment and forces are deployed, he underlined the need to further increase the density of firing in the future and steadily revise and supplement the proposal for sharing the firing duties and using equipment as required by a modern warfare and the changing deployment of enemy's forces.
He guided soldiers of Artillery Piece No. 1 of the Second Company under the battalion in firepower training.
He inspected a battalion under KPA Unit 641 stationed in the forefront area.
He gave the soldiers of the battalion a pair of binoculars, automatic rife and machinegun as souvenirs before having a photo session with them.
Making the rounds of an education room, bedroom, mess hall and other cultural and educational and supply service facilities, he paid deep attention to the service and living of soldiers.
The southwestern sector of the front is a hot spot where a war may break out any moment due to the enemy's reckless provocations for aggression, he noted, calling for keeping the service personnel on utmost alert in view of the touch-and-go situation. He ordered them to make a powerful retaliatory strike at the enemy, should the enemy intrude even 0.001 mm into the waters of the country where its sovereignty is exercised.
He was accompanied by KPA Generals Kim Myong Guk, Kim Won Hong and Pak Jae Gyong, Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the C.C., the Workers' Party of Korea, KPA Col. General Kim Chun Sam and staff members of the KPA Supreme Command.
