Pyongyang, September 29 (KCNA) -- Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un visited Kim Chaek University of Technology to congratulate its teachers and researchers on the 70th founding anniversary of the university and have a photo session with them.

He was greeted by Hong So Hon, president of Kim Chaek University of Technology, and Kim Ryong Il, chairman of the university committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, at the university.

Noting that the university has made great contributions to the country's scientific and technological education, independent development of the national economy and build-up of national defence capabilities, Kim Jong Un said he was pleased to personally meet and congratulate the teachers and researchers of the glorious university on its 70th birthday. He extended congratulations on behalf of the Party and government to all the teachers and researchers who have devoted themselves to the education and scientific research for the prosperity and future of the socialist country.

Saying that the university's position and duty are very important in implementing the Party's strategic plan for building a sci-tech power, a talent power, he expressed expectations and belief that its teachers and researchers would become the leading chariot and locomotive powerfully propelling the development of the country's science and technology and its economic construction, holding higher the slogan "Let us make a leap forward by dint of science and guarantee the future by dint of education!", and had a photo session with them.

Then he went to the revolutionary museum of the university, where he recalled with deep emotion that President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il founded the country's first comprehensive university of technology and clearly indicated directions and ways to be followed by it in each period and at each stage of the developing revolution and led it in every aspect of its work.

The university is one of the universities the Party trusts, boasts and holds up most, he said, stressing that the building of an economic giant can be given impetus when efforts are concentrated on steadily developing the university's scientific education.

He highlighted the need for the university to defend the Party and revolution with brilliant successes in scientific and technological research and talents training in the future, too, by reliably carrying forward the 70 year-long brilliant tradition.

He set forth vital tasks for the university to train students into creation-oriented talents and scientists faithful to the Party and revolution with strong revolutionary spirit and high faculties of inquiry and application by steadily enhancing the quality of education as required by the new century.

Saying it is the intention of the Party Central Committee and demand of the revolution to turn Kim Chaek University of Technology into the most prestigious university in the world, the Supreme Leader clarified the issues of improving the educational conditions and environment, content and method of the university, and bestowed great favors on the university.

Accompanying him were Vice-Chairman Pak Thae Song and Department Director Choe Tong Myong of the C.C., Workers' Party of Korea. -0-
