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.
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.

Pyongyang, November 22 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA Friday in connection with the fact that the forces hostile to the DPRK are resorting to the unreasonable act of linking it with the international drug-related crimes:
In recent days the Western reptile media are spreading sheer sophism that the DPRK is a major hotbed of international drug-related crimes. Its origin is none other than the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime.
The DPRK totally rejects it as it is another politically motivated puerile charade invented by those hostile forces keen on the base smear campaign aimed to isolate and stifle it.
Drug manufacture and smuggling are strictly banned in the DPRK, and such practices are never tolerated under its social system.
It is none other than the U.S. which is on the top of the list of drug consumption in the world and has the worst record of drug-related crimes. It is a hard fact that drug manufacture and smuggling are rampant in those countries where the U.S. stretches out its tentacles of aggression.
The U.S. and its followers, ringleaders of the international drug-related crimes, would be well advised to mind their own business.

Chairman Kim Jong Il (1942-2011) of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea performed immortal exploits for the cause of socialism.
The greatest of his exploits is that he staunchly defended the destiny of socialism.
The campaign for defending socialism in the end of the 20th century was the grimmest struggle the human history has ever recorded.
Availing themselves of the collapse of socialism in several countries the imperialists made a fuss about the end of socialism itself. The imperialists and the renegades of socialism resorted to despicable smear campaigns against socialism to justify their argument on the end of socialism. And they directed the spearhead of their offensive to Korea that remained as a bulwark of socialism.
At this critical juncture Chairman Kim Jong Il clarified the scientific accuracy and truth of socialism and the inevitability of its victory through his energetic ideological and theoretical activities, dealing a resolute counterattack to the imperialists’ manoeuvres against socialism.
He published a series of works including The Historical Lesson in Building Socialism and the General Line of Our Party, Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable and Socialism Is a Science so as to lay bare the absurdity of the slanders and abuses of the imperialists.
Thanks to his painstaking ideological and theoretical activities the scientific accuracy and truth of socialism could be clarified once again and the world progressive people were convinced of the justness of socialism and the inevitability of its victory.
Chairman Kim Jong Il established and administered Songun politics in an all-round way in order to safeguard socialism in Korea against the general offensive of the imperialists.
He defined Songun-based revolutionary line and Songun politics as the strategic line and invincible political mode of socialism that should be held fast to as long as the imperialists exist and carry on aggressive manoeuvres.
He smashed the imperialists’ moves to stifle Korea and defended the bulwark of socialism and the destiny of the country and nation in the period of the harshest trials on the strength of the Korean People’s Army and by giving top priority to the strengthening of the country’s military might.
Another major exploit of Chairman Kim Jong Il consists in having ushered in a new era of upsurge in the cause of socialism.
April 1992 saw the publication of the Pyongyang declaration titled Let Us Defend and Advance the Cause of Socialism that was signed by about 70 political parties of the world aspiring after socialism. It was a historical event that put the world socialist movement on a new track.
VOA commented that the Pyongyang declaration had proclaimed a new start of the international communist movement of the late 20th century and the 21st century; the bell to be rung in Pyongyang in future would unite the communists and greatly inspire them to revive the communist cause on a worldwide scale just as the sound of the bell from Kremlin had strong influence on communists.
Under the banner of the Pyongyang declaration the socialist cause could overcome temporary crisis and make a new advance and the world political trend took a sharp turn. Latin America, once called a quiet backyard of the US, seethed with the aspiration after socialism.
Encouraged by Korea’s Songun politics, anti-imperialist, independent countries and those aspiring after socialism are crushing the imperialists’ manoeuvres for domination and interference by giving precedence to military affairs.
The reality in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea that is mercilessly smashing all manners of challenges and threats of the imperialists and staunchly safeguarding the cause of socialism is infusing confidence and courage into the world progressive people who are aspiring after socialism.
Chairman Kim Jong Il resolutely crushed the imperialists’ offensives against socialism holding aloft the banner of Songun and at the same time, energetically led the Korean people’s effort for building a thriving socialist country. Under his leadership Korea, even in such a difficult situation, continued to enforce the free medical care, free educational system and other socialist policies and built a number of monumental structures for the well-being of the people, thus bringing the desires of the people into full bloom.
The great achievements Chairman Kim Jong Il made for the cause of socialism are now carried forward by Kim Jong Un with credit.
The immortal exploits Kim Jong Il performed for the cause of socialism will be etched forever in the hearts of the progressive peoples the world over. 

Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, looked round Kim Jong Il Military Graduate School under construction at Kim Il Sung Military University.
While going round the buildings of teaching staff and graduate students, a training course and a hall and other places where the construction has reached a final phase, he gave important instructions for finishing them well.
He said that it is of weighty importance to build the graduate school, a center for training dependable military personnel of the party, at the university which was founded and has developed under the energetic leadership and loving care of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
He underscored the need to provide all educational facilities of the graduate school and environment for education at the best level as required by the nature of Kim Il Sung Military University, a world-famous university with a long history and prestige.
Stressing the need to build not only educational facilities but also football field, basketball court, volleyball court, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool and indoor shooting gallery in such a manner as to be impeccable in the distant future, he indicated tasks and ways to do so.
He was accompanied by Vice Marshal of the KPA Choe Ryong Hae, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, General of the KPA Jang Jong Nam, minister of the People's Armed Forces, and Hwang Pyong So and Ma Won Chun, vice-department directors of the C.C., the WPK.

Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA on Wednesday in connection with the fact that an anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" was adopted at the 3rd Committee of the 68th UN General Assembly:
Those forces hostile to the DPRK, which regard it as a thorn in their flesh, railroaded such a "resolution" based on all sorts of lies and fabrications this year, too.
The DPRK bitterly condemns such a "resolution" as it did before
because the U.S. and its allies' adoption of such a "resolution" every year is the height of the politicization and selectivity of human rights and the application of double standard.
The above-said forces adopted such a "resolution" making profound confusing of right and wrong, turning their faces away from the stirring reality in which the policy of love for the people is enforced, steeped in inveterate repugnance towards the Korean style socialist system centered on the masses. This farce which has nothing to do with the protection of human rights will only stoke confrontation and distrust.
Such a ridiculous attempt to infringe upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and do harm to its dignified socialist system by abusing human rights for a sinister political purpose is bound to meet a stern punishment by history.
The DPRK will decisively foil all sorts of challenges and conspiratorial plots of the hostile forces with the might of single-minded unity and proudly build a thriving socialist nation where the people will enjoy happiness.
