Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, inspected Kangbuk-ri of Kumchon County, North Hwanghae Province, which has been rebuilt after being damaged by downpour and strong wind.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Pak Pong Ju and other senior Party and government officials.

He was greeted on the spot by Pak Chang Ho, chairman of the North Hwanghae Provincial Committee of the WPK, and commanding officers of the KPA units involved in the reconstruction project.

After learning about the fact that Kangbuk-ri was in a dangerous situation as it suffered severe damage from the recent downpour and strong wind and the dwelling houses and public buildings had not been properly repaired though it was hit by natural disasters every year, the Supreme Leader immediately issued an order to the KPA units to pull down and newly build all buildings in the ri seat and give it a facelift.

According to his order, officers and men of the KPA units have newly built the Kangbuk-ri seat flawlessly and reported the first victory on the front for recovery from natural disasters to the Party Central Committee.

Feasting his eyes on the model village of socialist rural community, he expressed great satisfaction, saying he feels as if he is looking over at another world and another item of the Party’s grand plan for rural construction and its policy on local construction has successfully been implemented correctly by the patriotic devotion and efforts of the service personnel.

He said that whenever he received the news about the heroic endeavour made every day by the service personnel who play a leading role on every front for reconstruction recently formed in several parts of the country, he deeply felt the inexhaustible and infinite spiritual strength, ardent patriotism and boundless loyalty to the Party and people of all the KPA officers and men and could not but bow his head to them for their devotion and pains.

The real might of the KPA lies not in the number of its troops or the power of its bullets and shells, but in the fact that it has spiritual strength characterized by love and trust, such ardent love for their state and people and firm confidence in their Party and the cause of revolution, and it is the greatest pride of our Party and state and the greatest blessing for him to have such a powerful revolutionary army that is faithful to the country and people, their Party and revolutionary cause, he said proudly.

As he looked round the dwelling houses and public buildings constructed in the ri, he repeatedly praised soldier-builders, saying they were neatly and cleanly built and both the interior and exterior were flawless.

He discussed the direction to be permanently followed by the Party in rural construction with accompanying senior Party and government officials.

He stressed the need to set the long-term objectives for local construction, especially rural construction, in a more realistic and planned way, accelerate the civilized development of the countryside to steadily spruce it up and remarkably boost state assistance in the responsible and important work for turning it into a rich and cultured socialist rural community equipped with modern technology.

It is a matter of urgency to make a more serious study of our Party’s immediate tasks for the present and its long-term objectives for completing at the earliest possible date the grand programme for socialist rural construction planned by President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il and to take necessary measures, he said, adding the Party Congress would give a correct answer to this important question.

He asked over and over again if the residents of Kangbuk-ri, the farmers, were pleased, and said that he was really glad to hear that they were delighted and that our Party was undoubtedly right to initiate the construction if they were pleased, extending thanks to the service personnel of the People’s Army who fulfilled another long-cherished desire of the Party.

He then advised the chairman of the provincial Party committee to quickly make the people move into new houses and said he wanted to see them move into new homes as early as possible.
