Kim Jong Un Visits New Aquatic Products Refrigerating Facilities

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, January 7 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, visited the Aquatic Products Refrigerating Facilities newly built by KPA Unit 534.

He went round various refrigerating facilities to learn in detail about their construction and the refrigeration of aquatic products.

He highly praised the unit for building a breakwater and very large modern refrigerating facilities with a wharf in a brief span of time.

The fisheries field of the People's Army made big fish hauls last year, he said, adding that it should continue to take the lead in fishing in the future, too.

He underscored the need to make the flames of the innovation drive in the fisheries field of the People's Army rage furiously in the fisheries across the country.

He said he visited there to discuss the possibility of supplying fishes to the baby homes, orphanages, orphans' primary and secondary schools and old folks' homes across the country, adding it is a firm resolution and will of the Party to make all children there stoutly grow up free from sorrow over being orphans to become successors to the revolution and backbone of the revolution.

He personally calculated in a memo what quantities of fishes are required yearly to provide 300 grams of fish to each of them a day.

Noting that the slogan 'Let the People's Army take charge of both national defence and socialist construction!' is very good, he called on the People's Army to carry out the task of supplying fishes to the baby homes, orphanages, orphans' primary and secondary schools and old folks' homes all the year round.

He issued on the spot an order of the supreme commander of the KPA to the KPA to set up a fisheries station which will specialize in supplying fishes to the above-said baby homes, orphanages, schools and homes.

He gave an instruction to finish the construction of the fisheries station before the Day of the Sun and start the fish supply from coming autumn.

He expressed expectation and belief that all commanding officers and officials would make big fish hauls this year wherever they work.

Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, So Hong Chan, Pak Jong Chon, Jo Nam Jin, Hwang Pyong So and Kim Pyong Ho.
