Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- A decision on awarding the marshalship of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to Kim Jong Un, supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), was announced on Wednesday.

All people throughout the country have taken the news as the nation's great auspicious event.

The radio airs songs reflecting their will to fully display the might of single-minded unity, the foremost strength of Songun (military-first) Korea, rallied closer around the dear respected Kim Jong Un.

Hyon Ki Chong, a KPA general officer, told KCNA:

"It was our ardent wish to confer the title of Marshal on the dear respected Kim Jong Un at an earlier date. This desire had run higher after he took the top post of the DPRK leadership.

From long ago, the servicepersons have respected him as a brilliant commander of varied attainments who is strong in faith, will, courage and grit, prominent in strategy and command and versed in civil and military affairs.

It is so natural for the servicepersons to devotedly defend Marshal Kim Jong Un, who shows deep loving care for them, trusting in them as his comrades-in-arms.

The happy news, announced ahead of the War Victory Day, July 27, inspires all the people in building a thriving country with firm confidence in victory."
