The Central Military Commission of the WPK set the formation of forces of the People's Army units to be dispatched to the Komdok area and their mission in the reconstruction campaign and took measures for provision and movement of vehicles and construction equipment and for provision of building materials including cement and fuel and coordinated transport and others, and organized the Komdok area reconstruction commanding group.

Introducing with pride the achievements being made in 24-7 reconstruction campaign by the service personnel and builders dispatched to the fronts for recovery from natural disasters across the country, the Supreme Leader said with confidence that if this spirit goes on, the reconstruction campaign would be successfully carried out by October 10 as decided by the Party and a signal success would also be made in the Komdok area, splendidly adorning this year as the one of victory.

Expressing belief that all the service personnel who are involved in the campaign for recovery from typhoon damage in the Komdok area of South Hamgyong Province would work with devotion for our great people, great Party and great state as befits the reliable revolutionary armed forces of the WPK and thus successfully complete their sacred combat mission before the 8th Congress of our glorious Party, he personally signed in an order of the Central Military Commission of the Party related with the campaign for recovery from typhoon damage in the Komdok area of South Hamgyong Province.
