He acquainted himself with the performance of the unit's duty and looked round the room for commanding the duty, special study room, etc.

He received a report that the sub-unit is preparing its officers and soldiers as all-round fighters capable of performing any difficult combatant duties assigned to them.

He said that the commanding officers should acquire capability to make a prompt analysis and decision on combat situation and create favorable circumstances.

He underscored the need to find out anything required for rounding off combat preparedness and take thorough measures and minutely modify and supplement combat documents so that all soldiers may be well versed in their combat duties.

Noting that unexpected circumstances may be created in a modern warfare frequently and all of a sudden, he underlined the need to be well informed about the enemy to beat him by a Juche-oriented war method.

He went round a mess hall and non-staple food store of the sub-unit.

The sub-unit is included in the list of those units which did bean farming well last year, he said, adding it is good to regularly provide every soldier with at least 200g of bean every day. He called for doing bean farming well this year, too.
