Kim Jong Un Inspects Nature Museum and Central Zoo



Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission (NDC) and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the Nature Museum and the Central Zoo which are nearing their completion.

Going round various parts of the museum, he learned in detail about its construction.

Noting that the construction of the Nature Museum as a mass education and sci-tech dissemination centre for giving knowledge about nature provided another peculiar education and leisure complex to the people, school youth and children, he highly praised the relevant sector and builders for successfully building the museum.
He gave an instruction to better arrange the museum on the principle of scientific accuracy, practicality and kind service.
Enjoying a bird's-eye view of the Central Zoo, he said it looks spectacular, indeed. Noting that from the moment visitors enter its huge main building depicting a tiger in Mt. Paektu, they would feel greatly delighted and excited.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the Party's intention to provide the people with an excellent condition for cultural recreation was successfully realized despite difficulties in every work, thanks to the dynamic struggle waged by builders.
Not only the exterior but also the interior of the animal sheds have been designed and constructed on the basis of such visual effect and good formative art that any visitor can easily know what animal sheds they are even from a distance, he said, adding that they stand so impeccable that everyone may feel as if he had come to the habitats of the animals.
If the Central Zoo is open, the people will feel happier and immensely pleased and they will be proud of standing on the high level of the world's civilization, he said, adding it is worthy of remodeling the zoo with much effort.
When one visits the Nature Museum and the Central Zoo, one will clearly realize what phase the tremendous strength and civilization of Juche Korea have reached, he said, advancing the task to be carried out by the officials of the relevant sector and builders and employees to give good finishing touch to the projects and make perfect preparations for their management and operation.
He was accompanied by O Su Yong, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the WPK, Kim Yo Jong and Jo Yong Won, vice department directors of the C.C., the WPK, and Ma Won Chun, director of the Designing Department of the NDC.




Kim Jong Un Visits Kwisong Saltern



Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, visited the Kwisong Saltern to learn about the salt production from underground ultra-saline water by the KPA.
Saying that he could hardly go to sleep after receiving a report that the People's Army turns out a large quantity of salt on a small field by introducing the method of salt production with underground ultra-saline water, he expressed pleasure over the fact that a bright prospect was opened up for fully meeting the national economy's growing demand for salt.
He acquainted himself in detail with the economic effectiveness of the new salt production method, comparing it with the previous method based on seawater.
In order to obtain salt from seawater, there should be reservoir, preliminary evaporating pond, evaporating pond and crystallization pond, but only evaporating pond and crystallization pond are needed to produce salt from underground ultra-saline water, several times higher in concentration than seawater. So, half of the present area of salt fields can be used for aquaculture, he noted.
He said that salt from underground ultra-saline water is tasty as it has less brine than that from seawater and it is of very high utility value in promoting the people's health and producing foodstuff, cosmetics and other basic necessities as it contains much potassium and iodine and less heavy metal.
There are rich underground ultra-saline water resources of great economic value in the west coastal area of our country, he said, adding: The relevant sector should vigorously prospect the promising fields of underground ultra-saline water and the salterns across the country should positively introduce the method of producing salt with underground ultra-saline water to radically boost the production of salt essential to the people's livelihood and the economic development.
Saying that the Party's policy should be implemented the way the People's Army does, he asked with great satisfaction for conveying his high appreciation and greetings to the soldiers who made a turning point in the country's history of salt industry.
The salt production from underground ultra-saline water is now at the start, but its prospect is rosy and it is an important way of solving the salt problem, he said, adding: The People's Army should continue to take the lead in piling salt and generalize its success and experience widely.
He stressed that the salt production sector should conduct a dynamic drive for producing salt in a larger quantity and thus supply enough salt urgently needed by various sectors of the national economy.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Pak Yong Sik, O Su Yong and Jo Yong Won.

NDC POLICY DEPARTMENT URGES U.S. TO ROLL BACK ITS ANACHRONISTIC HOSTILE POLICY TOWARD DPRK

 The U.S. which has imposed misfortune and pain upon the Korean people for the last several decades should roll back its anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK which ranked itself among the advanced nuclear powers, facing up to the latter's strategic position and the trend of the times. The Policy Department of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK demanded this in a statement issued on Wednesday. The above-said principled stand of the DPRK represents the thunder of justice heralding the final ruin of the U.S. and the final warning by Songun Korea, it noted, and went on: The U.S. is not aware of its impending miserable end, still seized with an anachronistic Cold War-minded way of thinking. Odd views that in any case it is impossible to change the principle of "north Korea's denuclearization first and halt to the pressure on it next" are heard from the U.S. political camp including the White House to mislead the public opinion. And a litany of such provocative invectives that "a switchover in the U.S. government's policy towards north Korea entirely hinges on its changes" is reeled off. The warmongers of the Pentagon are openly talking about their plan to stage the U.S.-Japansouth Korea joint drills under the simulated conditions of an actual war for coping with the "threat" from the DPRK's ballistic missiles for the first time in history as part of the scheduled large-scale RIMPAC exercises. The cunning U.S. is taking such double-dealing attitude as hurling the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops present in south Korea under the mask of "UN force" into the Military Demarcation Line in Panmunjom for the farce of "informing" over loudspeaker the KPA side of its wish to restore the severed DPRK-U.S. military hotline and resume contact, afraid of punishment in case it turns down the DPRK's principled demand. The statement clarified once again that the hostile policy persistently pursued by the U.S. towards the DPRK is a product of its anachronistic and unreasonable one lacking understanding and self-ruinous policy. [1] The first reason is that the above-said policy is a product of the anachronistic dream as it is insisting on its unilateral brigandish demand, disregarding the changed reality and the trend of the times. Early in the 1950s, the U.S. invaded the north, brandishing A-bomb against rifle but it is standing against the irresistible entity possessed of even tremendous H-bomb called "absolute weapon" on our planet at present. Tragedy is that the U.S. is ignoring not only the changed reality but the trend of the times. The longer the U.S. is carried away by the hallucination of aggression and war, disregarding the worldwide trend, and the more reckless moves it pursues to isolate and stifle the DPRK, the bitterer disgrace it will suffer and the dearer price it will have to pay. The second reason is that the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is a product of ignorance based on the theory of the jungle law bereft of any elementary understanding of its rival. The DPRK-U.S. confrontation has lasted for 71 years amid an extreme hostility. But the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK remains unchanged as it has been consistently pursued by the most hostile and outrageous methods. The U.S would be well advised to realize that it is the best way of escaping the nightmare and misfortune to properly understand who its rival is, though belatedly, recognize the reality, though painful, and reshape its foolish Korea policy. The third reason is that the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is a product of a self-ruinous policy as it only precipitates its most miserable final doom by itself. The history of the DPRK-U.S. confrontation clearly records the immutable law that certain victory is the tradition of Songun Korea and the brigandish U.S. is fated to sustain a defeat. The U.S. should foresee what the DPRK-U.S. relations will be in future in case it insists on its hostile policy toward the DPRK in the light of the past and present realities. For the U.S. to roll back its anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK as early as possible, though belatedly, would only offer it an opportunity of escaping a miserable fate.

AINDF Calls for All-out Actions for Independent Reunification of Country

The Central Committee of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front (AINDF) released a statement on Saturday.
The statement said that the Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) was recorded as the great auspicious event of the nation and the great assembly of epochal significance in the struggle of the Korean people and progressive mankind to realize the independent ideal and dream because it elected Marshal Kim Jong Un as chairman of the WPK.
It went on:
Kim Jong Un comprehensively analyzed and reviewed the path of patriotic struggle for foiling the vicious moves of the anti-reunification forces at home and abroad and ushering in a new era of national reunification and prosperity thanks to the outstanding idea and leadership of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il over the past 35 years since the Sixth Congress of the WPK was held. And he indicated a new way of achieving independent reunification.
The AINDF Central Committee fully supports and approves the line and policies, proposals and ways for achieving national reunification clarified in the report of Kim Jong Un who unrolled an immortal great programme for reunification.
The Korean people from all walks of life who love the nation and hope for reunification should positively support the line and policies for national reunification laid down in the report of the Seventh Congress of the WPK and turn out as one in the struggle to implement them.
The historic experience and lesson go to clearly prove that the only way of realizing the country's reunification in conformity with the aspiration and desire of all Koreans is to invariably hold fast to and implement the line and policies for the independent reunification set forth by the WPK.
The Koreans from all walks of life should turn out as one in the struggle for achieving the country's reunification, regardless of area, party faction, affiliation and ism, bearing deep in mind that nothing is dearer and more crucial task than the country's reunification.
The AINDF will carry on the dynamic struggle along the road of independent reunification indicated by Kim Jong Un and creditably discharge its responsibility and duty as patriotic
vanguard of the south Korean people in the struggle to achieve the country's reunification, no matter what manifold difficulties and trials it may face.

The statement ardently called upon all political forces and people from all walks of life desirous of the country's reunification to turn out as one in the sacred and patriotic struggle for the independent reunification of the country, rallied close under the banner of By Our Nation

NDC Urges S. Korean Authorities to Actively Respond to DPRK's Proposal

The National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK in an open letter on Friday said that its proposal for the north-south military authorities' talks is the best and greatest realistic way for ensuring peace of the country and the security of the nation.
The letter went on:
But the south Korean authorities categorically denied the DPRK's proposal for the military authorities' talks, terming it "propaganda offensive bereft of sincerity" and "camouflaged peace tactics". They went the lengths of crying out for "strong counteraction" while talking about such unreasonable logic as "denuclearization first and dialogue next".
The NDC of the DPRK solemnly urged the south Korean authorities as follows to put under control the prevailing catastrophic situation created in the north-south relations through dialogue and negotiations:
The south Korean authorities should immediately respond to the DPRK's proposal for jointly paving the way for ending all the hostile acts, stumbling blocks fostering mistrust and confrontation and hindering the improvement of relations between the north and the south, and for building military confidence.
All kinds of hostile acts rattling the nerves of the opposite side and slandering it including psychological broadcasting and leaflet-scattering operations being waged in frontline areas are by no means unrelated to the responsibilities of the military authorities of both sides.
The continued grim situation under which both sides level their guns at each other with the Military Demarcation Line imposed by outside forces and the hotspot waters in the West Sea in between would inevitably lead to armed conflict and the outbreak of a war.
Fostering trust and dialogue, not mistrust and confrontation, is the the best way and urgent and pressing task for paving a wide avenue to peace and prosperity under the touch-and-go situation.
The south Korean authorities should clearly bear in mind that the prospect for improving the north-south relations can be opened only through dialogue and negotiations.
The south Korean authorities should positively respond to the DPRK's proposal for opening bilateral military dialogue at the earliest date for settling all the problems arising in easing military tension on the Korean peninsula and improving the north-south relations.
Army, be it in the north or the south, has the mission to safeguard the peace and security of our country and nation.
It is the responsibility and duty of the military authorities in all aspects to remove the danger of a war and defuse tension on this land.
It is neither possible to achieve peace through the recourse to arms nor possible to ensure security through mud-slinging and hostility.
It is for this reason that we wish to put all matters of concern on the military negotiating table and settle them through frank discussion.
The south Korean authorities have to clearly understand that they can not have any reason or pretext to deny this if they have intent to improve the present north-south relations.
The south Korean authorities should meet the great expectation of all Koreans by actively supporting the bold and practical measures that would help ensure peace of the country and the security of the nation. 
Now is the time when a single action speaks louder than hundreds of words.
No matter how dear peace may be, talking is not enough to ensure it. The nation may be get inveigled in the whirlwind of war and suffer from a horrible disaster in the end.
It is necessary to decisively break with the inglorious past and make a fresh start.
The north and the south should join hands and take a giant stride forward to defuse military tension and the danger of conflict on the Korean peninsula and to open a new chapter for the improvement of the north-south relations and for the movement for national reunification.
There is nothing to be afraid of and nothing impossible if all members of the resourceful and homogeneous Korean nation pool their intention and efforts.
The south Korean authorities should behave with discretion as members of the Korean nation, not misjudging the warm sincerity and great magnanimity of the DPRK.

All the Koreans will soon be able to see bold and practical measures to be taken by the DPRK to defuse confrontation and the danger of conflict on the Korean peninsula and achieve the sacred cause of national reunification, the most cherished desire of the Korean nation.

Ministry of People's Armed Forces of NDC Proposes Working-level Contact to South Side's Military Authorities

The north-south military authorities' talks which were proposed at the historic 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) as the greatest and the best realistic way of defusing military tension and ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula have commanded unanimous support and approval from not only the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad but from the peace-loving people of the world for their urgency, validity and realistic nature.
Steadfast is the will and resolution of the army of the DPRK to resolutely meet challenges of all separatists at home and abroad and ensure lasting peace and security on the Korean peninsula true to the noble intention of the WPK to seek negotiated settlement of all issues including practical measures for defusing military tension and the danger of conflict in the areas along the Military Demarcation Line and in the hotspot in the West Sea.
The Ministry of the People's Armed Forces of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK Saturday sent the following notice to the south side's military authorities:
It is an urgent matter directly related to the existence of the Korean nation to defuse the military tension and prevent in advance the second June 25 Korean war on the Korean peninsula at present.
We think that it is necessary for the military authorities of the north and the south to discuss in an honest and candid manner the outstanding issues related to any possible military conflict and agree on and implement institutional and legal measures essential for taking practical steps for building confidence between militaries.
We propose to hold working-level contact for opening the north-south military authorities' talks at the date and place both sides deem convenient in late May or early June in order to defuse the military tension on the Korean peninsula and create confidence-building atmosphere between the military authorities of the north and the south.

All the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad will closely watch whether the south Korean authorities truly stand for peace on the Korean peninsula and the securi

DPRK Sends Letter of Protest to Park Geun Hye

The DPRK Emergency Measure Committee for Rescuing Abductees sent a letter of protest to Park Geun Hye on Sunday as regards the south Korean side's continued detention of DPRK citizens who were abducted in group.
As already known, the Intelligence Service of south Korea allured and took away to south Korea women citizens of the DPRK in group on April 5, who were running a restaurant in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province of China.
The letter said that the abduction of those citizens conducting legitimate business activities overseas is a violation of the DPRK's sovereignty and a heinous politically- motivated provocation to its ideology and system.
Branding the case as a hideous, premeditated and organized international terrorism committed under intervention of the south Korean authorities from A to Z, it said:
It is the unanimous view of people at home and abroad that such "defection", made in few h ours via third country, would have been impossible without direct involvement and control of the authorities.
Your side has kept each of our citizens in a solitary cell, completely isolating them from the outside world and gagging the press. It is another proof that the recent case was committed in an organized way under the direction of the authorities.
Your side's group abduction is an unethical act of destroying the harmonious families and ruthlessly violating human rights.
More than 40 days has passed since the DPRK girls were abducted and taken away to south Korea.
Our side had already and strongly demanded through several channels that your side make an apology for the group abduction and unconditionally return our citizens and inflict a severe punishment on those involved in the abduction case or hand them over to the DPRK's court.
We had also repeatedly urged your side to take a prompt working step so that the abductees' parents can go to Seoul through Panmunjom and meet their children face to face, as desired b y them. 
But, your side has persistently refused to accept our just demands under such shameful sophism as "free will" and "reflection of yearning".
We again and strongly urge your side to apologize for the unprecedented group abduction, return our citizens without delay and condition and severely punish or hand over to our legal institution those involved in the case and its wire-pullers.
Your side should also clearly assure us and the international community that such abduction will never be repeated.
For the present, you should take a practical measure at once so as to enable parents of the abductees to go to Seoul via Panmunjom and meet their children face to face and bring them back home.

The letter warned that if the south Korean side continues to deny the hideous crime and detain the abducted citizens of the DPRK for no reason, Park Geun Hye, the chief executive of south Korea, will be held wholly accountable for the grave consequence arising there from.

Action Called for Frustrating U.S. and S. Korea's Moves for Germ and Biochemical Warfare

In recent days it was disclosed that the U.S. is pushing forward the experiment on Zika virus in its military base in Ryongsan, south Korea, touching off bitter anger among people of various circles in south Korea.
Timed to coincide with this, it was disclosed that the U.S. Department of Defense chose U.S. military bases in Ryongsan of Seoul, Osan of Kyonggi Province and Kunsan of North Jolla Province and then Dock 8 of Pusan Port as the sites for the introduction of the Jupiter Plan aimed at increasing the capability of a biochemical warfare, sparking off stronger protest and criticism among south Korean people from all walks of life.
However, the U.S. and south Korean authorities are playing sleight of hand to cover up their crimes and escape public denunciation in and outside south Korea.
A spokesman for the North Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind the GIs' crimes issued a statement on Saturday bitterly denouncing the U.S. thrice-cursed and wicked design in the name of the whole Korean nation, declaring that the U.S. and south Korean authorities can never conceal their criminal moves with such childish and base sophism.
The statement recalled that last year the U.S. excused itself, asserting it "introduced germs only once" and it was a "simple mistake" though it conducted experiments on germ weapons after introducing active anthrax germs to its military bases in south Korea but it was disclosed that it not only introduced anthrax germs at least sixteen times but also introduced even pest and botulinus germs into south Korea long ago to prepare for a biochemical warfare, touching off bitter rebuff and denunciation in and outside south Korea.
It is well known to the world that the U.S. imperialists set up various germ institutes in the U.S. military bases and other parts of south Korea after the Korean war and have since conducted experiments on germ weapons capable of spreading malignant infectious diseases with high mortality among south Koreans.
All these facts clearly prove that the Americans are hordes of barbarians as they turned
south Korea into a hell as a part of the scenario to exterminate the Korean nation and a group of man-killers hell-bent on provoking a germ warfare, biochemical warfare in defiance of international law.
Tragedy is that the above-said U.S. experiments are openly conducted in broad daylight in south Korea only.
The Koreans cannot be safe as long as the U.S. man-killers and their lackeys are allowed to go reckless while resorting to reckless drills for a nuclear war against the north and hideous bio-chemical war scenario to exterminate the Korean nation.
The people from all walks of life in south Korea should turn out as one in the struggle to foil the criminal moves of the U.S. imperialists and their stooges to turn the inviolable land of the country into horrible debris of not only a nuclear war but also a bio-chemical warfare.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should cogitate about the disastrous consequences to be entailed by their reckless, foolish and criminal scenario and cancel it at once.

All Koreans will not tolerate the above-said scenario in the least but decisively frustrate it.

NATIONWIDE PATRIOTIC DRIVE FOR REUNIFICATION IS SURE TO EMERGE VICTORIOUS

The line and policies for national reunification set forth by Marshal Kim Jong Un are the encyclopedic great programmes for reunification as they give perfect answers to all urgent issues arising in radically improving the north-south relations and opening up a wide avenue to national reunification. They are evoking a lively response at home and abroad for its justice and warm patriotism and its fair and aboveboard contents acceptable to everyone.
Ri Jong Hyok, director of the National Reunification Institute, said this in a statement on Tuesday.
Noting that supreme leader Kim Jong Un laid down a new line and policies for national reunification to weather the prevailing ordeals and indicated the ways for implementing them at the Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea, he fully supported them.
The statement went on:
The history of the inter-Korean relations and reality clearly prove that it is possible to pull down the barrier of division and open up a wide avenue to independent reunification when all Koreans unite close as one irrespective of ideology, ism, political view and religious belief, cherishing great ambition for national reunification. But national reunification can never be achieved and the Korean people would only meet miserable disaster of war when the south Korean authorities resort to the moves for confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north, seeking "unification of social systems," pursuant to the outsiders' moves to split and alienate Koreans.
Whether to put the earliest possible end to the nation's distress-torn history in which it has undergone pain and misfortunes resulting from the division for more than seven decades due to outside forces and fling the door open for independent reunification or not depends on how to implement the fresh line and policies for national reunification.

There are still big obstacles and ordeals in the way of national reunification, but the entire Korean nation's patriotic drive for reunification to build a dignified, prosperous and reunified power on this land is sure to emerge

KIM JONG UN'S REUNIFICATION POLICIES SUPPORTED BY PRESIDIUM MEMBER OF C.C., DFRK

Kang Ryon Hak, Presidium member of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK), made public a statement on Tuesday in support of the national reunification policies clarified by Marshal Kim Jong Un.
Kim Jong Un in his report made at the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea set forth the national reunification policies on achieving national independence and great national unity, ensuring peace and realizing reunification by federal formula, Kang noted, expressing full support to the policies, recognizing that they are the most just policies correctly reflecting the lawful requirements of the cause of national reunification and the aspiration and desire of the nation and serve as an immortal banner dynamically arousing all the fellow countrymen to great national unity.
Noting that the cause of national reunification itself is the cause of re-linking the blood ties of the nation and achieving the national unity, he went on:
Nothing is more important than achieving great national unity in order to bring earlier the country's reunification.
The great national unity precisely means the country's reunification and powerful reunified nation.
Only when all Koreans from all walks of life in the north and the south and abroad get united as one, irrespective of ideology, social system and religious belief, can they achieve the country's reunification.
The entire Korean nation should positively turn out in the drive to achieve national reunification, the cherished desire of the nation, under the uplifted banner of the great national unity true to the noble intention of the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu.
Kang expressed firm belief that all Koreans from all walks of life in the north and the south and abroad would actively join in the drive to achieve the great national unity with their single-minded patriotic desire for reunification, irrespective of ideology, social system, political view, religious belief, affiliation and ism in hearty response to the patriotic appeal

made by Kim Jong Un.

MINISTRY OF PEOPLE'S ARMED FORCES AGAIN SENDS NOTICE TO SOUTH SIDE'S MILITARY AUTHORITIES

The Ministry of the People's Armed Forces of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK sent a notice to the south side's military authorities on May 21, proposing holding a working-level contact for opening the north-south military authorities' talks.
It was the proposal of the Korean People's Army to ensure durable peace and security on the Korean peninsula at an early date, true to the noble intention of the Workers' Party of Korea to solve all the issues through dialogue and negotiations such as practical step for defusing military tension and the danger of clash between the north and the south.
However, the south side's military authorities are giving impression that the situation on the peninsula remains tense due to the self-defensive measure taken by the DPRK including the step for bolstering the nuclear force and spreading such absurd assertion that the DPRK's proposal for dialogue is aimed to weaken international cooperation for "sanctions against the north" and create "discord in the south", far from actively responding to the broadminded proposal. They are even making such provocative remarks that "precedence should be given to denuclearization", chilling the desire of all Koreans to open a broad avenue to the improvement of inter-Korean relations through national reconciliation and unity.
The service personnel and people of the DPRK remain unchanged in their will to settle the present catastrophic inter-Korean relations through dialogue and negotiations, not by military standoff and clash.
For this reason the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces of the DPRK sent again the following notice to the south side's military authorities Tuesday:
The purpose of the military authorities' talks is not to call in question what is the principal reason for creating the military tensions on the Korean peninsula and who is to blame for them.
The opening of the inter-Korean military authorities' talks reflects all Koreans' expectation and desire for immediate discussion and solution to pressing issues such as the danger of military clashes along the Military Demarcation Line and in the hotspot of the West Sea
which may spark physical confrontation right now.
A spark of clash is bound to spill over to a war between the north and the south and it is the Korean nation who will fall victim to it.
Nothing can be a prerequisite or excuse for denying dialogue and shunning negotiations, the best way of settling all issues.
To refuse to meet, misusing an important issue decisive of the rise and fall of the Korean nation for achieving an absurd political purpose, is nothing but a far-fetched assertion that convinces no one.
The DPRK remains unchanged in its stand to hold a working-level contact for opening the north-south military authorities' talks late in May or early in June.

The south Korean authorities should immediately respond to the DPRK's proposal for ensuring peace of the country and security of the nation by deescalating the acute military tensions between the north and the south.

SPOKESMAN FOR DPRK FOREIGN MINISTRY ON TERROR INCIDENTS IN SYRIA


A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Tuesday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the grave terror incidents in Syria:
Terrorists carried out a series of suicide bombings in Tartous City, and Jableh City, Latakia Province of Syria on Monday, leaving more than 100 people dead.
These terror incidents are the products of despicable plots of terrorists and forces backing those terrorists to hinder the peaceful settlement of the crisis in Syria and create difficulties in the way of the struggle of the Syrian army and people to defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity and security.
It is the consistent stand of the DPRK government to oppose all forms of terrorism.
We reiterate our full support and solidarity with the just struggle of the government and people of the Syrian Arab Republic to foil the hostile forces' challenge and aggression moves and achieve security, stability and territorial integrity of the country.

Kim Jong Un Goes Round Machinery and Equipment Exhibition

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, went round the exhibition of machinery and equipment manufactured as labor gifts of loyalty to be presented to the congress of the motherly party.
He saw new type 80 hp tractor made at the Kumsong Tractor Factory.
He said with great satisfaction it is a great success that the factory manufactured the new type tractor with great capacity whose all aspects of technical performance are on the world's level by its own efforts and with indigenous technology.
After making a round of various types of farm machines newly manufactured at the farm machine field, he said they have been made well to suit the natural and topographical features of the country and the physical constitution of Koreans.
He appreciated the 5 ton lorry with 115 hp diesel engine newly developed at the Sungri Automobile Complex and the new type bus made at the Chongjin Bus Plant.
After seeing through visual aids highly efficient electric locomotive made at the Kim Jong Thae Electric Locomotive Complex, multi-purpose fishing boat of "Hwanggumhae" class built in the field of fisheries and 5 000 ton trade cargo ship built at the Ryongnam Dockyard, he said with great pleasure that they made the proud achievements conducive to developing the railway transport, fishing industry and maritime transport of the country.
Seeing with a bright smile on his face the new type tractor, bus, lorry and other machine products made by our own efforts and with indigenous technology and raw materials, he said repeatedly with satisfaction that they looked very nice and great. He noted that the exhibition was of eventual significance in instilling conviction and optimism into all the service personnel and people all out in the general charge for building a thriving nation, holding high the slogan of giving priority to self-development.
Noting that the machine products on display at the exhibition proved once again that self-development is the best and self-reliance and self-development are the way for us to live, he said we should root out the proclivity to import without fail and put a definite end to it.
He gave thanks to the units for having successfully made various machine products by giving full play to the self-development-first principle in the name of the Seventh Congress of the WPK and gave an instruction to start their serial production as soon as possible.
We should in the future, too, strengthen our own force by our own efforts and with indigenous technology and resources and uphold the self-development-first principle, the revolutionary spirit of hewing out our way, he noted, adding: Only our own strength is what we can believe in.
He expressed expectation and belief that all the service personnel and people would make eye-opening achievements one after another in implementing the line and policies set forth at the Seventh Congress of the WPK in hearty response to the self-development-first principle.

Accompanying him were Hwang Pyong So, Pak Pong Ju and Choe Ryong Hae who are members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, Kim Ki Nam, Choe Thae Bok, Ri Su Yong, Kim Phyong Hae, O Su Yong, Kwak Pom Gi, Kim Yong Chol and Ri Man Gon who are vice-chairmen of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Ri Chol Man, department director of the C.C., the WPK.

Kim Jong Un Provides Field Guidance to Tree Nursery of KPA

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), provided field guidance to the Tree Nursery No. 122 of the KPA successfully built as a gift of loyalty to be presented by the KPA to the Seventh Congress of the WPK.
Noting that he planned to turn the tree nursery into the one to be proud of in the world so that it might be presented as a gift to the Seventh Congress of the WPK, he said with great satisfaction that the KPA has creditably carried out the order of the supreme commander without an inch of deflection.
The tree nursery looks very vast as it is full of architectural structures and it has undergone so dramatic changes that no trace of its appearance last year could be found, he said, adding with pleasure that a model, standard of the tree nursery in the country and the tree nursery, the first of its kind, has been wonderfully built.
He went round various places of the tree nursery.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that a combined control system has been successfully built at the tree nursery to ensure the most suitable conditions and environment for cultivating tree saplings.
He said that sapling greenhouses have been built in a modern way to optimize the conditions for the growth of saplings by introducing cutting-edge technology and it is possible to produce saplings twice for a year by realizing the automation and mechanization of work in the greenhouses on a high level.
Modern irrigation facilities and sunshade apparatuses have been installed at the cultivation grounds for acclimatizing saplings grown on the round cuttings grounds and greenhouses to outdoor environment and at the districts for cultivating potted saplings, he said, noting they look attractive.
He said that all production processes ranging from the seed selection to sowing and sapling packing have been highly automated and streamlined and there are adequate stroma production processes and facilities for storing saplings.

Comrades,
Now as I am standing here before declaring the Seventh Congress of the WPK closed, I am reflecting on the grim decades of our Party that has travelled a long and arduous road. My yearning grows stronger for President Kim Il Sung and General
Kim Jong Il who made so much painstaking efforts to the last moments of their great lives to hand down this powerful Korea to posterity tiding over the severe tempest of history. And this brings back vivid memories of the names and faces of the unforgettable revolutionary comrades who passed away earlier. They supported the leader's intentions and cause, showing no affectation and vacillation in both good and bad times, and worked with devotion for the development of the WPK and the victory of the socialist cause.
Though they are not here with us, we should never forget the precious revolutionary comrades-in-arms who went against all odds as genuine comrades of our Party and devoted themselves heart and soul to the WPK and the leader, the country and the people during the period under review.
Comrades,
The Seventh Congress of the WPK summed up with pride the great victories our Party and people gained during the period under review in carrying out the cause of the Juche revolution under the wise leadership of the great Comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
This Congress has unfolded a magnificent blueprint for realizing our people's dreams and ideals by building a powerful socialist country on a full scale under the banner of modelling the whole society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. It has also advanced important tasks to be tackled in achieving independent reunification of the country and accelerating the cause of global independence.
The grand objectives, revolutionary line and policies put forward by the Congress will be an inspiring banner instilling into all Party members, service personnel and other people confidence in the future and victory and powerfully rousing the whole Party, the entire army and all the people to the general onward march for the final victory of the revolution.
At the Congress, in reflection of the unanimous will and desire of the whole Party and all the people, it was stipulated in Party Rules that the great Comrade Kim Jong Il is the eternal leader of the Workers' Party of Korea.
Our Party will hold up General Kim Jong Il as its eternal leader, and staunchly champion and add eternal brilliance to his revolutionary ideology and exploits.
The Congress elected a new leadership body of the Central Committee of the WPK, reflecting the will of its entire membership.
That a new leadership body of the Central Committee of the WPK has been elected with the unanimous approval of all the delegates is a clear manifestation of the absolute support and trust in our Party of all its members and other people.
I express my heartfelt thanks to the delegates, all Party members, service personnel and other people for having shown such great confidence in me.
Cherishing deep in my heart the greatest trust and expectations of you who have entrusted me with the heavy responsibility of the Chairman of the dignified Workers' Party of Korea, I will fight on undauntedly, offering myself without regret in the sacred struggle to hasten the final victory of the cause of the Juche revolution pioneered in Mt Paektu; and I pledge myself to remain faithful to the revolution, holding our people in high esteem invariably and selflessly at any time, at any place and at any moment, even if my body is torn to pieces and I fall.
The newly elected Central Committee of the WPK will carry through the line and policies the Congress has advanced and fulfil the historic mission and responsibility it assumes in the implementation of the cause of the Juche revolution so as to live up to the deep trust and expectations of Party members and other people without fail.
Our Party will faithfully serve the people and fight it out for national prosperity and the people's well-being, holding high the slogan "Everything for the people, everything by relying on them!" always in the future as in the past, true to the great leaders' noble idea of "The people are my God."
Members of the leadership body of the Central Committee of the WPK, keeping deep in mind the weighty responsibility they assume on behalf of the WPK and the revolution, should be staunch vanguard fighters in implementing the instructions of the great leaders and the WPK's lines and policies and competent organizers and propagators who powerfully inspire the broad masses to putting the decision of the Congress of the WPK into effect.
Our Party and people are faced with very enormous tasks and imperialists and other hostile forces will keep persisting in their manoeuvres to hinder us.
However, we will surely win final victory as the great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism brightly illumines the way ahead of us, there is the single-hearted unity of all the service personnel and people rallied firmly as one behind the WPK and the revolutionary armed forces infinitely faithful to the WPK are holding the red bayonet of invincibility.
Let us all vigorously fight for the completion of the socialist cause, independent reunification of the country and victory of the cause of global independence, firmly united around the Central Committee of the WPK under the unfurled banner of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.

Fully convinced that the revolutionary line and policies advanced by the Seventh Congress of the WPK will be carried out thoroughly and a great turn will be brought about in the implementation of the cause of the Juche revolution thanks to the indomitable spirit of offensive and heroic struggle of all the delegates and all Party members, service personnel and people who are unfailingly faithful to our revolution, I declare the historic Seventh Congress of the WPK closed.
