Pyongyang, January 1 (KCNA) -- The Masik Pass Ski Resort has been successfully built on the personal initiative of supreme leader Kim Jong Un and under his wise leadership. It was opened with due ceremony on Tuesday.
Present at the ceremony were Pak Pong Ju, Choe Ryong Hae, Kim Ki Nam, officials of the party and armed forces organs, ministries and national institutions, those in the field of sports, soldier-builders, officials, working people and youth and students in Kangwon Province.
Choe Ryong Hae, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People's Army (KPA), addressed the ceremony.
The ski resort is a valuable fruition of the deep loving care shown by the great WPK for the people to enable them enjoy luxury and comfort under socialism, the speaker noted, and continued:
In hearty response to the appeal of Marshal Kim Jong Un, service personnel of the KPA explored a huge mountain area, successfully creating 10 ski courses, and completed the construction of nearly 60 structures by carrying out projects at a lightning speed. By doing so they have proved that the DPRK does whatever the supreme commander is determined to do.
The country will never forget the exploits performed by the heroic builders and genuine patriots who created new historical terms "Speed on Masik Pass" by successfully finishing in a short span of time the construction that would take others more than 10 years to do, true to the noble intention of Kim Jong Un, who loves his people so much, and his outstanding leadership.
The speaker underscored the need to preserve and manage well all the facilities and buildings of the resort and scrupulously organize service and thus help the people more keenly feel the loving care shown by the party for them.
Commanding officials of the units which participated in the construction, leading officials of the province and managing officials of the resort got a red tape hung across for inauguration.
Soldier-builders and young people who will play skiing at the resort cut the tape.
At the end of the ceremony the participants looked round various places of the resort.
