The CMC of the WPK decided to promote the military ranks of major commanding officers of the People's Army in high recognition of their devotion and efforts to glorify this year marking the significant 75th anniversary of the glorious WPK as the first year of great victory in the frontal breakthrough.

The respected Supreme Leader put main emphasis on thoroughly realizing the party's monolithic leadership over the People's Army by consolidating the party organizations and political institutions at all levels within the People's Army and enhancing their function and roles, and on providing party leadership to conducting military, political, logistic and defence and all other affairs in line with the ideology and intention of the party under whatever circumstances.
