Noting that Generalissimo Kim Il Sung projected the all-round seaman movement decades ago, he said that various kinds of specialized training should be intensified among the seamen to prepare them as all-round seamen and death-defying corps on the sea.
He underlined the need for commanding officers to focus on having a deeper grasp of the abilities to organize and command naval battles and the art of operating warships under the actual war conditions.
He also went round barracks, education room and mess of the 1st company of the 5th flotilla under the unit to take warm care of seamen's living conditions.
