Pyongyang, January 20 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided a night exercise of air-borne units of the KPA.

After receiving a report on the plan of the exercise from a commanding officer, he gave an order to start the exercise.

Transport planes appeared in the sky above the drill ground, dropping paratroopers like hail.

The paratroopers showed the supreme commander their admirable actions of accurately landing on the designated points and occupying the 'enemy's position' at one go by satisfactorily applying the combat ways and methods they cultivated in their day-to-day trainings.

A-match-for-a hundred fighters who have undergone trainings day and night successfully carried out the order given by the supreme commander.

Noting that the exercise was very successful, he highly praised the combatants and airmen for successfully performing their difficult duties even under unfavorable night conditions.

He met the combatants who successfully conducted the drill of landing on the designated points requiring admirable pluck and high technique and encouraged them.

He gave important instructions to raise a stronger wind of training just as the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu, underscoring the need for the KPA to put spurs to rounding off the combat preparedness, the main task for bolstering up the military capabilities of the KPA.

A war against the enemy is fought in the worst conditions, he said, underlining the need for the soldiers to conduct training under the simulated conditions of a real war with high ideological awareness in order to satisfactorily perform their combat duties under any circumstances and conditions.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Ri Yong Gil, Jang Jong Nam, Pyon In Son, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Su Gil, Ri Pyong Chol, Pak Jong Chon and Hwang Pyong So.
