Pyongyang, February 11 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the construction sites of baby Home, orphanage and orphans' primary and secondary schools in Wonsan City.

Going round the construction sites, he learned in detail about the construction.

Noting that the baby home, orphanage and orphans' primary and secondary schools are being built along one line and construction of nursing and educational establishments for orphans this way will help them finish the whole course from nursery to secondary school without any inconvenience.

It is an unshakable resolution of our party to bring up all the orphans as excellent pillars of the country, he said, giving an instruction to push forward the constriction projects.

He gave an instruction to dynamically conduct frontline-style political work including visual and broadcasting agitations and art squad activities and energetically wage a socialist emulation among units, at different stages and among construction projects so as to bring about great innovations and leap forward.

Underscoring the need to pay deep attention to ensuring the quality of structure, he said it is necessary to strengthen supervision and control so that builders may thoroughly meet the requirements of designs and construction methods.

Noting that it is possible to step up construction projects only when building materials including structural steel and cement are satisfactorily supplied, he took measures for them.

Underlining the need to arrange well the environment of the baby home, orphanage and orphans' primary and secondary schools, he called for planting lots of trees in the mountain and field near them so that they may be thick with foliage.

He said that the construction and preparations for operation should be pushed forward simultaneously, underscoring the need to produce furniture, household utensils and other school things required for the operation of the baby home, orphanage and orphans' primary and secondary schools and step up, at the same time, the work for making uniforms for nurses and kindergarten teachers at the best level and the work for selecting management members and preparing them.

Recalling that the party sent a standard design for nursing and educational establishments for orphans to every province, he stressed that the relevant areas should wage a dynamic drive for building baby homes, orphanages, orphan's primary and secondary schools to suit the features of their areas, give prominence to their appearance and to be in line with their environment and accommodating capacity.

He called upon every province to build up the forces for designing and construction and lay solid material and technical foundations in order to thoroughly implement the party's construction policy.

Going round the construction site, I feel once again that the party's plan is being successfully translated into reality wherever service personnel work, he noted.

He highly praised service personnel of KPA Navy Unit 863 for having wound up the frame project of the baby home though they had no experience in construction. They could do this because they had waged a devoted struggle as the standard-bearer and a model in implementing the ideas of the party and upholding its policies, under the slogan 'Let the People's Army take charge of both national defence and socialist construction!', he said.

It is a great pity for failing to meet soldiers of the unit as they are on training to carry out a fresh order, he said. He asked officials to tell them that the supreme commander was very pleased to look round their construction site and convey his militant salute to them without fail.

He instructed the People's Army to get more forces involved in the construction so as to complete the construction of the baby home and orphanage in Wonsan City till the Day of the Sun and construction of the orphan's primary and secondary schools till the day of war victory this year marking the 70th founding anniversary of the WPK. He called on the People's Army to ensure the best quality in construction so that they may take responsibility for the safety of the projects and guarantee their absolute quality for all eternity and thus provide good cradle to the orphans.

He expressed belief and conviction that the soldier-builders would complete the construction of the baby home, orphanage and orphan's primary and secondary schools in Wonsan City by joining efforts with people in Kangwon Province and thus uphold in practice the intention of the party to bring up the orphans as reliable heirs to the revolution.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Hwang Pyong So, Hyon Yong Chol, Han Kwang Sang and Jo Yong Won.
