The Third Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) continued on June 17 to confirm the fighting policies which would play the guiding role in further accelerating the historic advance of our Party and people for this year and practical tasks.

As the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un appeared at the meeting hall to mount the platform, all the participants raised thunderous cheers of "Hurrah!" for the General Secretary of the ever-victorious Party who has wisely led the plenary meeting to creditably perform its crucial discussion and to fulfill its historic guiding mission and role with all his thinking and efforts directed to the well-being and happiness of the state and the people.

At panel study and consultative meetings that continued in the wake of the second-day sitting, substantial and dynamic tasks to be carried out in the second half of the year and practical ways were fully discussed.

The plenary meeting examined constructive opinions that were put together and adopted with unanimous approval a resolution reflecting additional measures for thoroughly carrying out major state policy tasks for this year and a resolution on unconditionally fulfilling the grain production plan by concentrating efforts of the entire Party, the whole army and all the people on the farming for this year.

The plenary meeting discussed as the fourth agenda item the analysis of the present international situation and our Party's course of counteraction.

The respected General Secretary reviewed and assessed major changes taking place on the international political arena in recent days and the external environment of our revolution.

Especially he made detailed analysis of the policy tendency of the newly emerged U.S. administration toward our Republic and clarified appropriate strategic and tactical counteraction and the direction of activities to be maintained in the relations with the U.S. in the days ahead.

The General Secretary stressed the need to get prepared for both dialogue and confrontation, especially to get fully prepared for confrontation in order to protect the dignity of our state and its interests for independent development and to reliably guarantee the peaceful environment and the security of our state.

Clarifying the foreign policy stand and principles of the WPK and the DPRK government concerning the important international and regional matters and stressing the need to further enhance the strategic position and active role of our state and create favorable external climate on our own initiatives, the General Secretary called for sharply and promptly reacting to and coping with the fast-changing situation and concentrating efforts on taking stable control of the situation on the Korean peninsula.

The plenary meeting discussed as the fifth agenda item the issues to be settled before anything else in order to stabilize and improve the people's living under the present situation.

Saying that it is the most important principle maintained by the WPK and the state in their activities to provide the stable life to the people and timely solve their difficulties, the General Secretary detailed the actual situation of the people's living which he acquainted himself with through several consultative meetings and the measures for its substantial improvement.

He said the idea of the devoted service for the people's wellbeing which is set forth as the sacred one by our Party is the practical guideline and standard of behavior that call for upholding the people with unconditional service bearing the responsibility for their lives and livelihood with all dedication to their interest in practice. He stressed that the Party should go deep among the people despite hardships, become their trusty mainstay, always find itself near them to share joy and sorrow with them and devote its all to the people's wellbeing.

He said it is the main point of the plenary meeting to take decisive enforcement measures for immediately solving the urgent matters which attract the deepest interest of the people and to which they look forward, delivering a special order that he personally inked with his sincerity to make even a small contribution to stabilizing the people's living.

All the participants in the plenary meeting supported and approved with enthusiastic applause the important determination and decision of the General Secretary reflecting his responsibility for the destiny and life of all the people of the country and the spirit of devoted service for them.

Discussed at the plenary meeting as the sixth agenda item was the issue of improving and bolstering the Party's childcare policy.

The General Secretary stressed that there is no more important revolutionary work than the work of bringing up children, the future of the country, to be strong and sound and that it is the most important policy and supreme cherished desire of our Party and state to provide more improved conditions for bringing them up even by investing huge sum of money.

Noting that it has to be the way of advance and development of our revolution to exert more sincerity to children even the condition becomes worse and to take dynamic steps forward towards the future of communism with the might of that love, he warmly said that if the children who are born and grow up on this land eat well and are raised healthily in good environment from their childhood, so much vibrant vitality and vim will overflow in our society after 20 or 30 years and the national power of the Republic will get greater.

Saying that  their days in nursery and kindergarten are the most important age in the children's growth and development, he called for establishing it as a Party's policy to supply all the children across the country with nourishing food including dairy products at the state's expense and set forth detailed tasks and ways for realizing it.

He ardently said that all the officials should pay special attention to providing sufficient food to the children of nurseries and kindergartens with their real parents' affection and get their loyalty to the Party, revolution, motherland and the people verified with their tangible contribution to implementing the Party's childcare policy.

At the plenary meeting, the suggestion made by the General Secretary was discussed with strong impulse and excitement and a relevant resolution was adopted with full support and unanimous approval.

All the participants in the meeting took a firm pledge to thoroughly implement the important policies discussed and decided at the plenary meeting.
