Date: 03/12/2019 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

The Korean Central News Agency issued the following detailed report on December 2 on noble loyalty and immortal feats of the Korean people as regards the fact that the second-stage project for remodelling Samjiyon County has successfully been completed, turning the township area of the county into an ideal city for the people.

The detailed report said:

The second-stage project for remodelling Samjiyon County has successfully been completed thanks to the Party’s grand plan of construction and wise guidance and the revolutionary spirit of single-hearted unity of the Korean people and their heroic struggle of self-reliance.

Builders preserved the national character, modernity and the specific feature of the northern tableland in the formation of the township area and construction and opened a new phase of practicality, diversity and the formative art by fully embodying the Juche-oriented idea of architectural aesthetics to the overall project.

They have thus transformed the township area of Samjiyon County into a model city of culture in the mountainous area encapsulating modern civilization and created a model for the brilliant realization of the Party’s idea of local construction.

The dramatic change witnessed in Samjiyon is a brilliant fruition of the Party’s noble moral obligation and love for the people and a precious spiritual wealth born of the invincible might of the single-hearted unity and the spirit of self-reliance displayed by all the people of the DPRK who are creating socialist civilization to be proud of in the world with their own efforts and in their own way following the Party.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, who regarded it as an obligation and revolutionary duty of soldiers and devoted followers of Chairman Kim Jong Il to better lay out his native county as befits the sacred place of the revolution, unfolded the far-reaching plan for sprucing up Samjiyon County when he visited it in November Juche 102 (2013).

His visit to the county in December 2017 in the teeth of biting cold marked a historic milestone in bringing about a great turn in the renovation of the county and creating the model and standard of local construction.

Kim Jong Un paid special attention to every part of the blueprint of the county, clarifying such issues as of forming a modern street with a main road in front of Kim Jong Il’s statue as the central axis, clearly dividing blocks of education, dwelling houses and local industry, adapting the buildings to their uses and avoiding similarity and replica while preserving the features of the mountainous county.

He examined more than 8 800 designs.

As the designer, constructor and builder, he made painstaking efforts to provide guidance to the construction by visiting the county three times in 2018 through muddy roads and even in the face of sweltering weather and snowstorm.

New norms were created ranging from the overall city layout to details of each structure, road facilities, and visual aids including slogans and watchwords and decorative illuminations. Turning the city into a forest and park has been realized on a high level to suit the mountainous county in the Mt Paektu area. This is the characteristics of the new appearance of the county.

The shock brigade members of the 216 Division and the service personnel of the Korean People’s Army, in hearty response to the Party’s appeal, turned out in the offensive to spruce up the township area of Samjiyon County.

The project that required the construction and renovation of several-storey and multiple-storey apartment buildings for more than 4 000 families and over 380 blocks of public and industrial buildings in hundreds of hectares was a massive struggle of creation tantamount to building a city.

In a little over ten days, nearly 200 blocks of old buildings were removed and in scores of days, excavation for infrastructure projects was finished and from March 2018, the project for laying the groundwork for the apartment and public buildings went into full swing.

Fierce flames of bringing about great innovation swept across the construction sites in the Paektu area.

Self-built building materials production bases began to pay off as there displayed the same spirit of self-reliance as was displayed in the forests of Mt Paektu.

The movement for creating mass technical innovation swept across the Paektu area.

Thanks to the exceptional zeal shown by the builders, hundreds of technical innovation plans throughout the 216 Division were introduced, doubling the construction speed.

The radical change in the township area of Samjiyon County is the brilliant result of the noble world of the loyalty of the Korean people.

The dedication of the people across the country to the sacred land of the great Sun found its non-stop flow to the Paektu area.

The strong desire and wish of the people to defend and glorify Samjiyon County which they regard as their own native places led to the increased production and transport and nationwide assistance.

Thanks to the pure and clear loyalty of the people, the excellent model and ideal standard city in the mountainous area has been built in Samjiyon County without parallel in the world.

The eye-opening reality in the township area of Samjiyon County eloquently proves how noble and beautiful is the goal of building a powerful socialist country of the Korean people, who are vigorously advancing straight ahead the road chosen by themselves without any vacillation despite the worst trials and how fast the struggle for realizing it is being advanced.
