Pyongyang, February 28 (KCNA) -- Marshal Kim Jong Un, supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, looked round the Guards Units Hall newly arranged at the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum.

When he entered the main lobby that hosts the statue of President Kim Il Sung, he paid tribute to him.

Noting that it was well done though it was the first color sculpture in the country depicting the President waving back to service personnel of the KPA, he said he felt as if he were seeing the smiling President.

He went round the hall of the Guards Units.

The title of Guards instituted on July 19, 1950 during the war was the highest commendation and honor the President bestowed upon the heroic fighters in the hope of making their distinguished feats go down in the history and letting this glorious tradition of struggle remain shining generation after generation, he said.

He emphasized the great importance of the Guards Units Hall in conveying to posterity the history of Songun revolutionary activities of Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il who made sure that the tradition of victory of Guards Units remained shining generation after generation.

The prevailing situation where a great war for national reunification is at hand requires all the KPA units to become guards units fully prepared for war politically and ideologically, in military technique and materially, he stressed.

He underlined the need for all the units to conduct a dynamic movement for winning the title of the Guards Unit in order to tear to pieces the Stars and Stripes and the flags of the satellite countries of the U.S. in the war to be fought with it in the future.

He looked round the halls of the first and second stages of the Fatherland Liberation War.

He noted it was important to organize well the visits to the Museum and effectively operate it as it is a center for education in the tradition of victory won by the army and people and a main base for anti-U.S. education.

He expressed expectation and belief that the officials and lecturers of the Museum would creditably discharge their honorable duty in the future, too.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Choe Ryong Hae, O Il Jong, Han Kwang Sang, Ri Jae Il, Ri Pyong Chol and Kim Yo Jong.
