Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

Pyongyang, August 28 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung 's immortal feats in the development of the Juche-oriented naval force were recorded in the course of proud victory covered by the Navy of the Korean People's Army.

The President wisely led the struggle to establish a modern and powerful navy after the liberation of the country.

Noting that it is necessary to decisively strengthen the coast guard in our country bounded on three sides by the sea, he organized the maritime security force and gave detailed teachings for its name, and selection and training of its members and the issue of guard ship.

He also directed great efforts to successfully bringing up the officers of the navy and strengthening its military and technical foundation.

He named the regular naval force that developed from the maritime security force "Korean Fleet" and declared to the world the establishment of the Navy of the Korean People's Army on August 28, Juche 38 (1949).

He clearly indicated the orientation and ways for increasing the combat preparations and combat efficiency of the fleet as soon as possible in conformity with the prevailing situation of the country.

The naval force organized under the care of the brilliant commander has won shining victories since that historic day.

The sailors of the 2nd Torpedo Flotilla torpedoed a heavy cruiser of the U.S. imperialists with only 4 torpedo boats in the past Fatherland Liberation War, a miracle unprecedented in the world history of naval battles.

The seamen of the People's Army who defended the seas of the country, true to the leadership of the Party and the leader, captured the armed spy-ship Pueblo which illegally intruded into the territorial waters of the country in January 1968, demonstrating the might of the invincible revolutionary army in the annals of the revolution.

Our naval force has invariably carried forward the traditions of proud victory holding in high esteem the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un , another illustrious commander, at the top post of the armed forces of the Republic. -0-
