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

Pyongyang, July 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 National Defence Commission of the DPRK, inspected the defence detachment on Ung Islet honored with the title of the Three-Revolution Red Flag, which is defending an outpost in the East Sea of Korea.

After receiving a salute, he looked round the monument to the field guidance given by President Kim Il Sung. Kim Jong Un recollected with deep emotion the undying exploits performed by the President and leader Kim Jong Il for the development of the defence detachment.

He noted Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il worked heart and soul for the development of the KPA.

Watching the military installations there, he underscored the need for the service personnel of the detachment to turn the Ung Islet into an impregnable fortress and thus glorify for all ages the feats performed by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il in commanding the army.

Then he watched the firepower training of the service personnel of the artillery emplacement visited by Kim Jong Il. He gave an order to open fire and guided their drill.

He was greatly satisfied to see them accurately hit the target.

Highly praising the artillerymen for accurately hitting the target, he said that he was very pleased to meet the crack shots.

He bestowed the great honor of awarding a crack shot diploma to the Artillery Piece No. 1 of the First Platoon of the First Company of the detachment and crack shot medals and badges to its artillery men before having a photo taken with them.

He watched the heavy gymnastic drill of the service personnel of the detachment.

He set forth important tasks which would serve as guidelines for rounding off the combat capability of the detachment.

'The commanding officers of the detachment should prepare themselves as commanding officers and political cadres of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il style and intensify the political and ideological education among the service personnel to train them as revolutionaries and patriots strong in idea and faith and possessed of versatile knowledge and high cultural attainments,' he said.

He stressed the need for the detachment to always direct efforts to the anti-U.S. education and class education, regardless of conditions and circumstances, so that the service personnel may make training part of their life and habit with burning hatred towards the enemies.

He gave an instruction to the detachment to turn it into one of crack shots so that it may send the enemies intruding into the waters of the DPRK to the bottom of the sea to the last man once a battle kicks off and thus not allow them to set foot even an inch of its inviolable land.

He went round the bedrooms, education rooms, wash-cum-bath rooms, mess halls and stores of the First and Third companies of the detachment to take deep care of the living of their service personnel as their real father would do.

After learning in detail about the supply service to the service personnel, education of the children of the military families, etc., he stressed the need to pay particular attention to the living of the service personnel there and their families. He showed deep loving care for the defence detachment,

He gave a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle to the First Company as gifts and had a photo session with the service personnel of the detachment and the military families.

He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, and KPA Colonel General Pak Jong Chon, vice chief of the General Staff and director of the Firepower Commanding Department of the KPA.
