Kim Jong Un put forward militant tasks for the People's Air Force to make full preparations for cultivating the quality and discipline of revolutionaries as the first death-defying corps of the WPK in every way and coping with any military crisis immediately and powerfully.
He expressed the belief that the entire pilots, commanding personnel and other officers and men of the Air Force of the Korean People's Army would add brilliance to the history in which they have been absolutely faithful to the Party and the revolution, the honour and high-spirited heroism of the great victors and the proud tradition of victory and thus keep making a wonderful contribution to defending the cause of the WPK and opening up a more glorious and prospering new era for our great state and our great people.
