The Fourth Enlarged Meeting of the Seventh Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) took place at a stirring time when the entire Party and the whole society are pushing ahead with the great revolutionary advance for glorifying this year marking the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK as a year of opening up an epoch-making phase in the path of the development of the Korean-style socialism, true to the line and policy for achieving prosperity by self-reliance set forth by the great Party.

The meeting was guided by Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the WPK.

Attending the meeting were members of the WPK Central Military Commission, members of the Executive Committee of the Korean People's Army Committee of the WPK, commanders and commissars of the services and corps of the Korean People's Army, commanding officers of the Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of People's Security, the Guard Headquarters and other armed forces organs at all levels and vice directors of major departments of the WPK Central Committee.

The meeting discussed important military steps and organizational and political measures to further bolster up the overall armed forces of the DPRK politically and ideologically and in military technique to be able to firmly defend the political stability and sovereignty of the country and reliably contain the persistent big or small military threats from the hostile forces in view of the essential requirements to bring about further progress in developing the national defence capabilities and war deterrent under the internal and external situation created in the vital period in the development of our revolution, and dealt with an organizational matter.

The meeting reviewed and analyzed a series of drawbacks in the military and political activities of the overall armed forces of the DPRK including the People's Army, and discussed methodological issues for overcoming them and bringing about drastic improvement. Also discussed at the meeting were the issue of examining and setting right the unreasonable machinery and compositional defects and the core issues for further increasing the capabilities for militarily deterring the threatening foreign forces by rapidly increasing the self-reliant defence capabilities and organizing new units.

The meeting stressed once again the tasks facing the different sectors to thoroughly carry out the revolutionary military line and policies of the party.

Set forth at the meeting were new policies for further increasing the nuclear war deterrence of the country and putting the strategic armed forces on a high alert operation in line with the general requirements for the building and development of the armed forces of the country.

Taken at the meeting were crucial measures for considerably increasing the firepower strike ability of the artillery pieces of the Korean People's Army.

The meeting elected a vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the DPRK and recalled or by-elected some of its members.

Ri Pyong Chol was elected as vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the WPK.

The organizational matter was tabled at the meeting on dismissing or transferring or newly appointing commanding officers in major posts of the armed forces institutions.

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. He specified key issues to be constantly maintained in the military and political performance of the armed forces of the DPRK, and tasks and ways.

He signed seven orders including the orders on new military measures discussed and decided at the Party CMC, an order on draft reorganization of machinery for enhancing the responsibility and roles of the major military educational institutions, the order on reorganizing the military commanding system to meet the mission and duty of the security institutions, and the order on promoting the military ranks of commanding officers.

The Fourth Enlarged Meeting of the Seventh Central Military Commission of the WPK organized and led by Kim Jong Un served as a historic turning point of great significance in increasing the capabilities of the revolutionary armed forces in every way and laying a solid foundation for further powerfully propelling the victorious advance of the revolutionary cause of Juche by dint of the invincible military force under the outstanding army-building idea and strategic plan of the WPK.
