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.
