KIM JONG UN GIVES FIELD GUIDANCE TO PYONGYANG UNIVERSITY OF ARCHITECTURE
Pyongyang, November 27 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the Pyongyang University of Architecture.
He looked round the rooms for the education of the students in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the university.
Foreseeing the future of the country after the victory in the hard-fought war, President Kim Il Sung founded the university on Oct. 1, 1953 right after the ceasefire and visited the university several times, indicating the orientation and ways for education and scientific researches.
Leader Kim Jong Il developed the university into a comprehensive seat for training talents in the fields of construction, city management, land management and environment protection and reposed such profound trust in it as entrusting the designing of monumental buildings to it.
Kim Jong Un renamed the university the Pyongyang University of Architecture, personally guided dozens of architectural designs created by teachers and students of the university and took steps to bring the education at the university to the world's level.
He said under the warm care of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il the university has come to have colleges, faculties, dozens of departments, a doctoral institute and a research institute training architectural talents in various fields, stuffed with hundreds of holders of academic degrees.
He gave instructions to the university to build well a museum showing the development of the Juche-oriented architecture at the university and eternally glorify the undying exploits the Generalissimos performed by founding the Juche-oriented idea of architectural beauty and devoting themselves to the development of the university.
Noting that more than a hundred of DPRK heroes and Labor heroes have been produced from among the graduates from the university, he stressed that this fact alone clearly proves it is playing a big role in building a rich and powerful country.
The university has demonstrated the might of the authoritative and prestigious group of architectural designers by ensuring architectural designs of national value at the highest level and creating and designing lots of architectural masterpieces, he noted, highly appreciating the successes achieved by the university over the last 60 years since its founding.
It is the great pride of the WPK to have the university, a group of able architects and a reliable base for training construction scientists and technicians, he said.
He set forth tasks to be fulfilled by the university, going round different places including the educational science exhibition, architectural designing room, drawing practice room and audio-visual room for the study of foreign languages.
The Pyongyang University of Architecture is a scout party for building a highly civilized socialist country and a center for training architectural talents, he said, stressing the need to bring about a drastic turn in the education as required by the developing reality.
He said that university students should bear in mind that the future of a highly civilized country is drawn on a designing table and study hard, sparing time.
It is the firm resolution and intention of the party to develop the university into an advanced base for building a highly civilized socialist country, he said. He reposed profound trust in the university, saying he would become its honorary president.
Kim Jong Un had a photo taken with the officials of the university.
He was accompanied by Pak Pong Ju, premier of the DPRK Cabinet, Choe Thae Bok, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, Ri Jae Il and Choe Hwi, first vice department directors of the C.C., the WPK, and Ma Won Chun, vice department director of the C.C., the WPK.
U.S. SLAMMED FOR BLOCKING RESUMPTION OF SIX-PARTY TALKS WITH UNREASONABLE PRECONDITIONS: SPOKESMAN
Pyongyang, November 26 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday in connection with the fact that the special representative for north Korea policy of the U.S. State Department toured countries around the DPRK:
What the special representative said and did while touring countries around the DPRK proved that the U.S. remains unchanged in its attitude set to check the resumption of the six-party talks while persisting in absurd preconditions.
This clearly proved once again that the U.S. has had no interest in the resumption of the six-party talks from the beginning.
The six-party talks aim at removing the root cause of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula and denuclearizing the whole of the peninsula in the spirit of respect for sovereignty and equality.
But the U.S. has not fulfilled the commitments it made at the six- party talks in the past and now rejects the talks by raising the brigandish demand for the DPRK's unilateral concession first.
It is also resorting to a trick to shift the blame for the stalled six- party talks on to the DPRK in a bid to evade increasing denunciation and pressure from the public inside and outside.
But with no sleight of hand can it evade its responsibilities for the nuclear issue on the peninsula. It also has to withdraw its hostile policy toward the DPRK and create an atmosphere for denuclearization of the peninsula.
We want a negotiated settlement of the issue but will never accede to unreasonable preconditions raised by the U.S.
The U.S. improper behavior of deliberately creating obstacles in the way of resuming the talks under absurd preconditions will always be blamed and the U.S. will have to own full responsibilities for ensuing consequences.
The DPRK remains unchanged in its goal for the denuclearization of the whole of the Korean Peninsula but it will be compelled to steadily bolster deterrence as long as the U.S. becomes all the more undisguised in pursuing hostile moves and increasing nuclear threats.
