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.
