Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the Jangchon Vegetable Co-op Farm in Sadong District, Pyongyang City, whose looks have undergone a radical change to be a model and a standard of the socialist rural cultural construction.
He set forth a task to build the farm into an exemplary farm and icon of greenhouse vegetable production when providing field guidance to the farm associated with the immortal history of leadership given by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il in June last year. He guided the layout for the construction of Jangchon area several times and took benevolent measures for settling the issues arising in it.
He went round the mosaic depicting smiling Kim Il Sung, a monument to the revolutionary activities of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, the room for the education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the farm.
He recalled that the farm developed into a dependable producer of vegetables under the warm and meticulous care of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il who made indefatigable efforts to the last moments of their lives to provide the Pyongyang citizens with fresh vegetables all the year round.
He went round the hall of culture, science and technology disseminating center, Jangchon health complex, modern dwelling houses and other places to learn about the construction in detail.
He praised the farm for building the hall of culture as well as a national art theatre so that the farmers may fully enjoy a cultural and emotional life and constructing a nice park and a leisure ground having a volleyball court, a swimming pool, a roller-skate ring and a fishpond.
He was satisfied to see the library, e-reading room and technology study room in the science and technology disseminating center and modern equipment in the soil analysis room and the room for examining damage done by insects.
Appreciating the successful construction of modern dwelling houses, in particular, he was pleased that the farm carried out the party's policy of making an effective use of natural energy and turning the village into an orchard by equipping each house with solar water heater, solar cells and a methane gas supply system and planting fruit trees around each house.
He went round mud-walled plastic sheet greenhouses and arch-style chain greenhouses to learn in detail about the vegetable production and management of the farm.
He enjoyed a bird's-eye view of the farm from the observation deck.
He praised the Pyongyang City for working an eye-opening miracle in the socialist rural cultural construction as required by the party and being able to proudly greet the grand festival in October.
He extended thanks in the name of the Party Central Committee to farmers of the farm and officials and other working people in Pyongyang City for making a positive contribution to turning the Jangchon area into a spectacular farm reminiscent of a rural city as required by the party.
It is the resolution and will of the party to bring about a radical turn in the rural cultural construction with this farm as an example and torch, he said, giving Pyongyang City an instruction to push ahead under a plan with the work to spruce up well the farms on the outskirts of the city on the basis of the successes and experience already gained.
He expressed expectation and belief that Pyongyang City would take the lead in the drive to implement the behests of the leaders and uphold the party policies in the future as a political, economic and cultural hub of socialist Korea having the mission to hold aloft the banner of the three revolutions-ideological, technical and cultural.


The Korean war (1950-1953) witnessed a miraculous victory for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with less than two years of its history won in the fiercest confrontation against the United States, with the most influential military and economic power and the longest history of aggression in the world, and other imperialist allied forces. Credit went to Kim Il Sung (1912-1994), now held up as the eternal President of the DPRK, who was endowed with outstanding stratagem and unique military tactics.
When the south Korean army, egged on by the US, started the war at dawn on June 25, 1950, Kim Il Sung put forward the strategy of switching from defence to an immediate counteroffensive.   
It was quite a new and original counteroffensive strategy never before found in military theories and manuals or even in other countries’ experiences.  
Following his unique strategy, the Korean People’s Army frustrated the surprise attack of the enemy and liberated Seoul, the enemy’s capital city, within three days after the outbreak of the war, and more than 90 per cent of the southern part of Korea and 92 per cent of its population in little over than a month.
Douglas MacArthur, the then commander of the US Far East forces and UN Forces, wrote in his letter to the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Organization that the “enemy” was an offensive and well-trained professional army and its supreme military commander was excellent in command and well-versed in fundamentals of operational stratagem.
Kim Il Sung saw through the enemy’s motives and commanded the KPA to apply strategies and tactics properly.
One of his strategies was employed in frustrating the “General Christmas Offensive” so much vaunted by the US. When the US was getting overheated in preparing for a new general offensive hurling large troops in November 1950, the President pointed out that the US would start its attack on November 24 and ordered the KPA to go over to an all-out decisive counteroffensive on November 25. The troops of the US and its vassal states suffered a heavy loss and took flight.
Kim Il Sung put forth and made best use of original tactics that wrote brilliant pages in the modern history of war.
Many military tactics were created by him during the war, including mountain warfare, tunnel warfare, assaults, anti-aircraft and anti-tank teams, which were suited to the topographical features of Korea, military equipment of the KPA and the modern warfare. Of them the tactics of relying on tunnels was created based on geographical features of the country that is mountainous and a scientific analysis of the enemy that depended on his technical superiority.
By deploying the tactics of relying on tunnels the KPA defended Height 1211. In September 1951 Kim Il Sung made his way to the area of Height 1211 in the eastern sector of the front and indicated the orientation and ways to frustrate the frantic “autumn offensive” of the US. He took measures to build strong tunnel positions. In accordance with his order the KPA soldiers set up smithies on the heights, forged chisels, hammers, picks and other tools by melting the enemy shell and bomb fragments, and dug tunnels along the defence line, converting their positions into an impregnable fortress. Even in the thick of the enemy’s intensive bombardment they took a good rest in the tunnels, singing and dancing to the tune of musical instruments they made by themselves.
The then Allied Commander in the Far East Ridgway, who met with consecutive defeats owing to the KPA defence line consolidated into tunnels, cried in despair that it was the strongest one ever known in the world.
The superiority in numerical and technological strength much vaunted by the US, the so-called “world’s strongest,” was shattered to pieces by the strategic and tactical superiority of the KPA created by its Supreme Commander Kim Il Sung.
Recollecting the Korean war, former Portuguese President Francisco da Costa Gomes, who once served as the chief of staff of the Portuguese army in Macau, said: “The operations plans advanced by the United States in the war were all formulated after several rounds of discussion by dozens of bourgeois generals, like chiefs of staff and military specialists, of the Western countries on the US side. But General Kim Il Sung frustrated them all single-handed. Witnessing it, I learned that General Kim Il Sung was a universal genius in military strategy and a great commander.”


Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, watched a flight training of women supersonic fighter pilots Jo Kum Hyang and Rim Sol.
He learned about a taking-off and landing solo flight training plan of women fighter pilots at the airfield runway before watching their training.
Seeing their solo flight with satisfaction, he said with pleasure that young girls are very admirable, they are flowers of the sky and women supersonic fighter pilots came into being for the first time in the history of army building.
Watching them promptly dealing with sudden circumstances, he said that he was very pleased with their brave training. He highly appreciated them, saying that the girls' solo flight of supersonic fighters in which it is hard for men to fly is a success to be proud of in the world.
At the end of the training he met with Jo Kum Hyang and Rim Sol and congratulated them on their successful training.
Warmly taking the hands of the pilots weeping tears of joy after receiving bouquets, he said that they successfully conducted solo flight though there are a few countries with women pilots of supersonic fighters. This is not because their physical conditions and technological preparations are good but it is a revelation of the noble revolutionary spirit in which they cherished the warm love for the country and the transparent spirit of defending the country and ideologically accepted the Workers' Party of Korea's training-first policy and remained loyal to the intention of the Supreme Commander.
He had a photo session with the pilots.


Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, together with Ri Sol Ju gave field guidance to the Terminal of Pyongyang International Airport which was successfully completed.
He commanded a bird's-eye view of the terminal from his plane. Saying that Pyongyang International Airport was well built in a neat and fashionable manner, he set forth the tasks for radically changing the looks of its area in harmony with the modern terminal.
He stressed that the looks of the vicinity of the airport, including the areas of Sunan District and Thaekam Farm, should undergo a dramatic change as befitting the gateway to the capital city of Pyongyang, under the Party's master plan for the development of the airport area, and high-speed railways and motorway from the airport to the city center should be built to ensure smooth traffic.
After getting down through an air bridge, he went round the newly-built terminal. He was very satisfied to see the terminal well built as required by modern architectural beauty and national character. He noted with pleasure that the gatepost of the airport was erected in such way as to sustain the national character and the front and back of the terminal look very nice.
Going round departure waiting lounge, check-in hall, entry formalities hall, arrival hall, service hall, VIPs rooms and other places of the terminal, he learned in detail about their construction and preparations for their operation.
Recalling that leader Kim Jong Il gave a series of instructions to build well Pyongyang International Airport till the last moments of his life, Kim Jong Un said his instructions had been implemented at last. I feel deep remorse at the failure to show Kim Jong Il this wonderful terminal, he said, adding:
The leader would have been very glad to hear that the airport was built wonderfully like this by our own efforts. His smiling image is fresh in my memory.
Kim Jong Un gave his thanks on behalf of the Party Central Committee to the soldier-builders, officials of commissions, ministries and national institutions and working people who built the terminal as a model edifice in the Songun era to be proud of before the world.
Stressing the need to successfully ensure the management and operation of the terminal, he specified the tasks and ways for having a splendid inaugural ceremony on July 1 and starting serving passengers.
He ardently called for building many edifices symbolic of the thriving and highly-civilized country by displaying the same creative enthusiasm for creating the Korean speed as done in the construction of the terminal and thus significantly adorning the venue of the grand October festival.
