Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, inspected the Headquarters of Large Combined Unit 966 of the KPA.
He was greeted by the commanding officers of the unit on the spot.
He waved back to the cheers of its service personnel and had a photo session with them.
He went round the monument to the on-the-spot instructions of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, the monument to the autograph of Kim Jong Il, the revolutionary museum and the room devoted to the history of the unit.
Seeing the historical relics and data showing the devoted efforts made by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il for rounding off the combat readiness of the unit and bolstering up its combat capability, he looked back on the course of victory and glory covered by it.
Looking at photos of successive commanding officers one by one, he said that there were many anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters among the commanding officers of the unit, indeed, and added that this fact alone clearly tells what great importance Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il attached to the unit.
He listened to the report on the defence operation plan from the commander of the unit at the operational command room and went round the military study room, firing hall and various other places to learn in detail about the training and combat readiness.
Noting that the unit has a very important duty to perform, he set forth tasks that would serve as guidelines for increasing the combat readiness and capability of the unit in every way.
He went round a mess hall, swimming pool, bath house and various other places to take warm care of the living of service personnel as their real father would do.
He enjoyed a performance given by the art squad of the unit at the soldiers hall.
He expressed his satisfaction with the successful performance staged by the members of the art squad with numbers sensitively reflecting party policies and gave instructions which would serve as guidelines for their performing activities.
He expressed expectation and conviction that all service personnel of the unit would maintain full combat readiness and thus firmly defend the socialist country with arms.
Accompanying him were KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Army Col. General Ri Yong Gil, first vice-chief of the KPA General Staff and director of the General Operational Bureau.
