Pyongyang, January 12 (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, inspected the command of KPA Unit 534.

He was greeted by Col. General So Hong Chan, first vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces, and commanding officers of the unit.

He encouraged the officers and soldiers of the unit who are devoting all their wisdom and enthusiasm and making devoted efforts to improve the living standards of service personnel in hearty response to the slogan of the Party that supply service precisely means a battle for defending socialism, and had a photo taken with them.

He looked round the room devoted to the education in the revolutionary history.

He recalled that Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il regarded it as an important requirement for army-building to improve the living standards of service personnel, underscoring the need for the unit to wage a dynamic drive to improve their material and cultural living standards so as to firmly preserve the undying feats performed by the Generalissimos.

He said he visited the unit to make 2014 a year of a radical turn in supply service to the People's Army and bring about a signal victory in defending socialism, adding that it is a main link in the whole chain for strengthening the affairs of the People's Army to improve the living standards of its service personnel.

He called on the People's Army to launch a high-pitched drive in bean farming, fishing and stockbreeding this year.

The unit plays a very important role in improving the living standards of the service personnel, he said, calling on the unit to take the lead in doing so.

He underlined the need to bring about a radical turn in improving the living standards of the service personnel and organize a meeting of logistic personnel of the KPA late this year, adding that they should proudly come to the meeting with successes and experience gained in the efforts to improve the living standards of service personnel.

He went round an e-library of the unit and looked at data on scientific and technological achievements.

He appreciated a performance given by the unit's art squad at the soldier's hall and gave a precious instruction as regards its performing activities.

He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Choe Ryong Hae, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, Kim Kyong Ok, first vice department director of the C.C., the WPK, and Hwang Pyong So, vice department director of the C.C., the WPK.
