At this stirring time, the 3rd Enlarged Meeting of the 8th Central Military Commission of the WPK was held at the office building of the WPK Central Committee from June 21 to 23 to review the overall military and political activities of the Korean People's Army (KPA), the revolutionary armed forces of the Party, and determine its important and heavy duty for the times and history.

The meeting decided to increase the number of vice-chairmanship of the WPK Central Military Commission after examining a proposal for it, and elected Ri Pyong Chol, secretary of the WPK Central Committee, as vice-chairman of the Party Central Military Commission.

Placed on its agenda were the crucial issues arising in rapidly bolstering the national defence capabilities to put them on the level appropriate to a new stage of the developing revolution by thoroughly implementing the military line and key defence policies of the Party.

The WPK Central Military Commission analyzed its work system and order and the performance of the military commissions of the provincial, city and county Party committees, discussed the important issues of enhancing the function and role of the military commissions at all levels as required by Party building and the principles specified in the Party rules, and adopted a relevant decision with unanimous approval.

The meeting also reviewed the work of the Ministry of National Defence, the KPA General Staff, the KPA Committee of the WPK and the KPA General Political Bureau and the military and political activities of the commanding officers and staff of the KPA units at all levels and the Party political organizations of the armed forces organs in the first half of the year 2022.

The WPK Central Military Commission confirmed the issue of further strengthening the Party's guidance on the overall armed forces of the Republic in an all-round way and of bringing about a radical turn in training the army to be strong in ideology and faith by letting the entire army hold fast to the Party's army-building orientation and general line. It also confirmed the strategic and tactical tasks for pushing ahead with the development of the KPA into the one strong in military technology and the immediate duties for building up national defence, and decided on the organizational and political measures to ensure the thorough execution of the defence policy of the WPK.

Guided by the vice-chairmen of the Central Military Commission of the WPK, the meeting additionally confirmed the operation duties of the KPA frontline units, had an in-depth study and discussion on the military measures for enhancing the capabilities of carrying out operations, modified operation plans and reported their results to the WPK Central Military Commission.

After hearing the results of study and discussion and the preparation of an important document, the WPK Central Military Commission decided to supplement the operation duties of KPA frontline units with an important military action plan. It also examined and approved an important issue of providing a military guarantee for further strengthening the country's war deterrent, true to the strategic plan of the Party Central Committee, and ratified the plan for reorganization of military organizational formations.

The meeting emphasized the tasks for different sectors to carry through the Party's revolutionary army-building line and strategic policy and clarified all the principles to be adhered to in the overall work for national defence.

Guiding the meeting, the respected General Secretary said that today's struggle, in which the stern trials facing the revolution should be braved with a strong will and resolute decision, essentially calls for surely maintaining and constantly improving the absolute power and the military and technical edge of the KPA, the strong bulwark for defending the revolution and the country.

He stressed the need for the entire army to go all out for implementing the army-building idea and military strategic plan of the Party Central Committee, occasioned by the enlarged meeting that set forth the clear-cut practical action guidelines for bolstering the military muscle, and consolidate in every way the powerful self-defence capabilities for overwhelming any hostile forces and thus reliably protect the dignity of the great country and the security of its great people.

Then he made a conclusion on the important principles to be adhered to in all military and political activities of the KPA.

The meeting, convened at a very important time in the advance of the Korean revolution, will be significantly recorded in the history of the WPK's struggle as a historic discussion of great significance in further intensifying the Party's guidance on the military affairs and drastically increasing the fighting efficiency of the revolutionary army, true to the outstanding army-building idea and strategic plan of the Party Central Committee. -0-
