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, provided field guidance to the Phyongchon Revolutionary Site rebuilt into an eternal treasure of the Songun revolution.
The Phyongchon Revolutionary Site is a historic place associated with the undying feats of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, who chose the site for the first arsenal in the liberated country and paved an untrodden path for the munitions industry.
Enjoying a panoramic view of the site, Kim Jong Un noted that the President came to the Phyongchon plain in October 1945, seventy years ago to choose the site for a munitions factory.
He went round a mosaic depicting the images of the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu and a monument to their field guidance, submachine-gun performance test ground and firing range and the revolutionary museum.
He said with high appreciation that every part of the site has been remodeled to its original state on the principle of historicism and its education compound and greening are neat and admirable.
The education in the Songun (military-first) idea occupies an important part in the Party's ideological work, he said, adding that the Phyongchon Revolutionary Site has a very important role in conveying the immortal Songun revolutionary exploits performed by the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu and encouraging the servicepersons and civilians to remain loyal to the Party's Songun leadership.
He advanced such tasks for operating the site as matters of displaying a photo of the President test-firing a submachine gun at the shooting range, intensifying the work to discover historic data, meticulously organizing the visits to the site, steadily raising the ability of its lecturers and conducting a brisk itinerant lecture and bettering the environment of the site.
The Phyongchon Revolutionary Site is just a native place of the Songun arms, he said, adding: Every gun, produced thanks to the tireless efforts of the President, has formed a forest of arms defending the Party and the revolution, the country and its people and the historic gun report made by him at the site turned the DPRK into a powerful nuclear weapons state ready to detonate self-reliant A-bomb and H-bomb to reliably defend its sovereignty and the dignity of the nation.If we struggle in the same spirit with which the workers produced submachine guns by their own efforts just after the liberation of the country when everything was in need, we can further build up our country into a powerful one no enemy dares provoke, he said, stressing the need to steadily put big efforts on the development of the country's munitions industry associated with devoted efforts of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
