Only when this movement is conducted vigorously to hit the general target of building the Party’s army, it is possible for the KPA to glorify down through generations the tradition of defending the Party and the revolution with the good appearance of the Party’s army, he added.
It is the intention of the WPK to write a new history of the O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment Title Movement as required by the times and the developing revolution by having the bugle call of the O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment during the anti-Japanese war ring out loudly in the entire army, he said, advancing the militant slogan that the entire army should become the 7th Regiment during the anti-Japanese war and guards units during the Fatherland Liberation War.
What is important in dynamically conducting the O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment Title Movement is to direct primary efforts to strengthening the army in politic-ideological and moral aspects, he said.
