Pyongyang, January 2 (KCNA) -- Supreme leader Kim Jong Un in his New Year address for 2015 said that this year the DPRK should further demonstrate the country's might as a military power by bringing about a fresh turn in building revolutionary armed forces and enhancing its defence capability. He continued:

The People's Army should thoroughly establish the Party's monolithic command system across the entire army and vigorously conduct the movement of winning the titles of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment and Guards Unit. Thus it should implement to the letter the Party's four-point strategic line and three major tasks for increasing military strength. It should effect a turnaround in improving the quality of training by eliminating formalism and stereotyped patterns in combat and political training and updating its contents and methods. It should maintain full combat readiness so that it can repulse any provocation by the enemy in one stroke. By bringing about a radical turn in its supply service, it should provide soldiers with better living conditions and make all its battalions and companies elite combat ranks and their dear villages and homes that adjoin the yard of the office of the Party Central Committee. In the future, too, it should be a pioneer and example in the struggle

to implement the Party's ideas and safeguard its policies in pursuance of its plan for building a thriving nation.

In line with the requirements of the prevailing situation, the officers and men of the Korean People's Internal Security Forces should sharpen the sword for defending the leader, system and people, and members of the Worker-Peasant Red Guards and the Young Red Guards should conduct combat and political training in a real-war atmosphere, thereby beefing up their combat efficiency and getting fully prepared for an all-people resistance so that they can defend their own provinces, counties and villages by themselves.

By carrying out the Party's line of promoting the two fronts simultaneously, the defence industry sector should step up the efforts to make the munitions production Juche-oriented, modern and scientific and proactively develop and perfect powerful cutting-edge military hardware of our own style.
