Pyongyang, December 4 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, looked round the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt Paektu.

Supreme Leader of the Party, state and armed forces Kim Jong Un was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, first vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly.

Also accompanying him were Army General Pak Jong Chon, chief of the KPA General Staff, commanders of the services and corps commanders of the KPA and senior officials of the WPK Central Committee.

It is of remarkable historic significance that Kim Jong Un, the great leader of our revolution who opens up the period of a great leap for the development of the revolution, personally left the sacred trace in the revolutionary battle sites in Mt Paektu area, the source of the lifeline of the revolution and inexhaustible patriotism, through knee-high virgin snow.

Kim Jong Un acquainted himself with the preservation and management of the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt Paektu and the real state of study tour and indicated the historic importance of education in the revolutionary traditions and ways for intensifying it on the higher level, while making the rounds of the revolutionary battle sites, revolutionary sites and lodging quarters for visitors in Samjiyon County, Mupho Bivouac and the Taehongdan Revolutionary Battle Site while recalling the sacred footprints President Kim Il Sung left in the battle sites on Mt Paektu and the noble soul of the anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners.

Riding a steed across the vast area of Mt Paektu together with the commanding officers who accompanied him, he recollected the bloody history of the guerrillas who recorded dignity on the first page of the history of the Korean revolution by shedding their blood in the vast plain of Mt Paektu.

Saying that Samjiyon County has been remodeled as the native one of the revolution and as the hub for practical experience and an immense edifice for the education in revolutionary traditions, he noted that this is a manifestation of a rock-firm faith and immutable will of the Korean people to carry forward the glorious revolutionary traditions, the immortal foundation of the revolution, as the eternal lifeline, add everlasting luster to it and thoroughly implement the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered on Paektu.

He said that we should ensure that the Party members, working people, service personnel and youth and students of the new generation have a proper understanding of the revolutionary traditions of Paektu that they are the one and only traditions of the Korean revolution which were created along with the start of the Korean revolution and have been ceaselessly developed in every harsh period of the revolution. He continued that we should let them enshrine a proper viewpoint and attitude to the revolutionary traditions of Paektu that they have displayed undying vitality in the struggle of all stages and all forms of the Korean revolution, and helped demonstrate the country's dignity and honor before the world.

Now that the rising generations emerge as the main force, new issues arise from the global political structure and social and class relations, and the imperialists and class enemies make a more frantic attempt to undermine the ideological, revolutionary and class positions of our Party, we should always live and work in the offensive spirit of Paektu, he pointed out. He stated that to firmly arm oneself with the great idea and spirit which run through the revolutionary traditions of Paektu is an important and vital issue of giving continuity to the generation of revolution.

He remarked that it is an important goal and policy constantly maintained by the Party in training reserves for the revolution to make the new generations, who make up the main force of the Korean revolution at present, have the same ideological and spiritual qualities and fighting traits as those of the anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners, adding that's why the Party made sure that the slogan "Let us produce, study and live like the anti-Japanese guerrillas!" are held aloft.

Saying with deep emotion that he felt a lot while making the rounds of the revolutionary battle sites again and that there would be no one on a par with President Kim Il Sung, who waged long bloody battles making his way through virgin snow for the sake of national liberation and the people's freedom and happiness, he noted that the President's immortal revolutionary exploits will go down through generations along with the unchangeable, imposing figure of Paektu.

He reverently pictured the feelings of the President who must have surmounted lots of difficulties with a strong will dreaming of today's powerful socialist homeland, he said, stressing that he hardened his resolution to defend the gains of the revolution and take the one road only down through generations, and that he felt encouraged though higher responsibility sits on his shoulders.

Saying that the revolutionary idea of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il pervades all the revolutionary battle sites and revolutionary sites in the Mt Paektu area, Kim Jong Un added that it is necessary to receive lots of education through the study tour of the revolutionary battle sites in order to learn about the idea of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and the revolutionary idea and the indefatigable revolutionary spirit of our Party. It is particularly important for the commanding officials of the revolution to attend "Paektusan University" through the study tour of the revolutionary battle sites in Mt Paektu in order to thoroughly prepare themselves to be sound and competent political activists who took after the great leaders, he emphasized.

It is the consistent determination and will of our Party to defend and carry forward for eternity the glorious revolutionary traditions which took roots in Mt Paektu and thus tide over the ordeals of the revolution and carve out the new road in the indomitable attack idea based on the great traditions, he said, setting out ways to conduct education in the revolutionary traditions of Mt Paektu among all the Party members and other working people and thoroughly embody them in all fabrics of social life.

He called for organizing the study tour of the revolutionary battle sites in winter, too, and stressed that it is the requirement of our Party that the study tour is not just carried out as a sight tour or sight-seeing in a formalistic way, but is done in a substantial way to help the participants directly experience how harsh the ordeals and trials underwent by the anti-Japanese guerrillas was. He underscored the need to arouse once again the strong wind of arming with the revolutionary spirit through the study tour of the revolutionary battle sites in Mt Paektu area in the entire Party.

He called for taking measures to thoroughly reject and overcome such things as approaching the issue related to the study tour of revolutionary battle sites and the revolutionary sites as a business-like issue or a thing over which one can bargain, as defaulting on it under the excuses of conditions, as approaching the issue of education in the revolutionary traditions in a chronic way and as trying to substitute the reading session of the reminiscences of anti-Japanese guerrillas for it.

He stressed the need for all the Party organizations to analyze and sum up in an overall way the education in the revolutionary traditions conducted in recent years and take strong substantial measures to do this important work in a consistent and intensive way.

He said that the reason he spared his time to look round the revolutionary battle sites this time was to establish the social atmosphere of further strengthening the education in the revolutionary traditions. He continued that this is aimed to instill the indefatigable revolutionary spirit of Mt Paektu into the Party members and other working people, soldiers of the KPA and youths and students in line with the present situation and environment of our revolution in which the entire Party and the whole army and all the people have turned out in the drive for building a powerful socialist country with the indomitable mental power of self-reliance by regarding the line for self-prosperity advanced by our Party as their lifeline despite the unprecedented blockade and pressure imposed by the imperialists, and also in line with the needs to get prepared for the harshness and protracted character of our revolution.

He stressed once again the need to defend and embody in all fields the revolutionary traditions of Mt Paektu, the encyclopedia of our revolution and treasure of eternal value for the Korean nation.

After looking round the revolutionary battle sites, he once again ascended Mt Paektu, the sacred mountain of the revolution. -0-
