Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, inspected the completed Koam-Tapchon Railways.
Years ago, he unrolled a plan for building a large-scale fishing village zone in the areas of Koam, Tapchon and Chonapho favorable for developing the fishing industry and set forth the task for building modern Koam-Tapchon Railways as a preceding process.
Builders, scientists and technologists successfully built a railway bridge across the rough sea of Sokjon Bay as a monumental edifice in the era of the Workers’ Party and thus hewed out an unprecedented new ground in the DPRK’s history of railway construction.
Watching the railways across the rough sea, he expressed great satisfaction over them, saying with pleasure that it was very wonderful and it seemed to see an art piece and another problem about which the Party was concerned has been resolved.
Noting that the completion of the railways linking Koam with the Songjon peninsula opened up a broad avenue to rapidly hastening the construction of the Tapchon fishing village zone as planned by the Party and satisfactorily transporting fishes caught in the fishing village zone, he highly praised the builders, scientists and technologists for having successfully carried out a difficult and enormous project with their own efforts.
Appreciating that they wonderfully designed the marine railway bridge in Sokjon Bay and carried out the construction qualitatively, he repeatedly expressed satisfaction over them, saying that the longer he sees them, the more pleasant he feels and the more proud they look. He added that another valuable edifice was built on the east coast of the country.
Pointing out that there is no impossibility for the Korean people dynamically advancing by dint of self-reliance and self-development, science and technology and they do whatever they make up their mind to do, he stressed the need to create and develop everything our own way by relying on our efforts, technology and resources in the future, too.
The completion of the Koam-Tapchon Railways is remarkably raising the revolutionary and working zeal of the Korean people dynamically hastening the grand march for economic construction true to the decisions made at the Third Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the WPK, he said, adding that it once again made the people being convinced of the powerful Juche-oriented might of our state which is making a steady leap forward on the firm basis of the self-supporting economy.
In high appraisal of the exploits of the builders and officials who successfully completed the Koam-Tapchon Railways through heroic struggle, he gave thanks to them in the name of the Central Committee of the WPK.
He was accompanied by Kim Yong Su and Jo Yong Won, senior officials of the Central Committee of the WPK.
