Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, guided an airborne landing training of sharpshooter sub-units of the Air and Anti-Aircraft Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA).

After receiving a report on the training plan at an observation post, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un guided the training.

Saying sharpshooters are very skilled at landing, he noted that it is well worth seeing the quick movements of combatants directly led by brigade commanders and commissars in the unfamiliar area according to a sudden battle order. Praising them as brave, reliable and real fighters, he expressed great satisfaction.

He said that it is necessary to wage a drill without notice under the simulated conditions of real war like this and examine it, not being affected by rule and formality, and thus make it an opportunity for improving the preparedness of KPA units for war and examining and training them.

Saying that in emergency, the field and circumstances of battle may differ from those of training, he underscored the need to organize and guide drills in an effective way with the main stress on fully training all combatants to successfully discharge their duties under any condition.

He said that in order to develop the KPA into an invincible army, it is necessary to steadily hold aloft the banner of the training revolution and conduct practical and fresh actual maneuvers in an intensive way by setting the simulated conditions of war and creating unexpected circumstances at random.

He had a photo session with the combatants who took part in the training.

He was accompanied by cadres of the WPK Central Committee. -0-
