Pyongyang, October 29 (KCNA) -- Marshal Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, congratulated the staff of Kim Il Sung Military University and had a photo taken with them on the 60th anniversary of the university.

Kim Jong Un warmly waved back to the enthusiastically cheering teachers and employees of the university.

The supreme commander warmly congratulated the school personnel, cadets and graduates of the university greeting its 60th anniversary amid the blessing of the great Generalissimos. The statues of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il were erected at the university which is situated in Mangyongdae, holy place of the revolution, on the occasion of the anniversary.

Kim Jong Un said that the university developed into the highest seat of military education and the most effective and reliable military officer training center under the wise guidance of the Generalissimos.

For the past six decades after its foundation, the university has brought up competent commanding officers who are intensely loyal to the leadership of the party and capable of fulfilling their role in a great war for national reunification, he added.

Teachers, who are professional revolutionaries and un-assumed hard workers, are preparing cadets to be commanding officers of the revolutionary armed forces of Korea, he said, stressing that they are dependable comrade-in-arms of the supreme commander and assets valued by the WPK.

He encouraged them, noting with appreciation that the graduates from the university who constitute the backbone of the army and the core of the revolutionary armed forces are discharging their heavy yet honorable mission and duty in defending the socialist homeland.

He expressed the conviction that the teachers and employees of the university would improve the military education as required by the developing Korean revolution and bring up more commanding officers possessed of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il's strategies and perfect capability of fighting an actual war, and had a photo taken with them with the statues of the Generalissimos for a background.

Accompanying him in the photo session were Choe Ryong Hae, Hyon Yong Chol, Kim Jong Gak, Jang Song Thaek, Ri Yong Mu, Kim Yong Chun, Hyon Chol Hae, Kim Won Hong, Ri Myong Su, O Kuk Ryol, Ju Kyu Chang, Ryo Chun Sok, Jang Tong Un and other senior party and army officials.
