A strong contingent of medical personnel in the military medical sector of the Korean People’s Army was urgently committed to the battle for the supply of medicines which is vital for victory in the anti-epidemic campaign on the special order of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea which expects them to play a leading role in defending national security and the people’s lives.

The combatants held a meeting on May 16 at the Ministry of National Defence to pledge themselves to perform their assigned duty in the fight to control the prevailing health crisis in the capital city of Pyongyang.

It was attended by the combatants in the KPA military medical sector to be dispatched to perform the mission of service of medicines and transport of medical supplies in the capital and ministry officials.

The platform was taken by Pak Jong Chon, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau and secretary of the WPK Central Committee and commanding officers of the defence ministry.

Pak Jong Chon read out the special order of the WPK Central Military Commission on urgently committing a contingent of medics of the KPA to the front of emergency anti-epidemic efforts in the capital.

Speeches were made by Colonel General Kwon Thae Yong, first vice-minister of National Defence and director of the KPA General Bureau of Logistics, officer Ryang Chung Sok and NCO Choe Tong Ju.

The speakers expressed their determination to work hard for the transport and supply of medicines with warm affection of the KPA whose mission it is to serve the people, fully aware that the provision of medical supplies is not merely a practical work for medical treatment, but a noble patriotic undertaking to convey the heartfelt sincerity of the Supreme Commander to the people.

They ardently called for resolutely overcoming the epidemic crisis created in the capital and becoming honourable victors by putting their heart and soul into the anti-epidemic campaign so that they can proudly review how the revolutionary medics in the era of Kim Jong Un carried out the battle order of the WPK in the war against the malignant virus in the distant future.

A letter of pledge to Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un was adopted at the meeting.

The letter expressed the resolve of loyalty of all the participants in the meeting to faithfully carry out the special order of the WPK Central Military Commission and thus win victory in the anti-epidemic war without fail.

After the meeting, certificates of dispatch in the name of the KPA committee of the WPK were awarded to officers and NCOs who were urgently dispatched as members of the medical treatment and medicine supply teams to resolve the epidemic crisis in Pyongyang.

They were given a warm send-off by the ministry officials, KPA service personnel and officers’ wives.

Upon arrival at the spots, the combatants launched into the supply of medicines.
