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 armed forces of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the construction sites in Samjiyon County in the successful final stage of the second-phase project.

Looking over the panoramic view of the township whose looks changed beyond recognition, Kim Jong Un was informed in detail of the second-phase project.

He said all the buildings in the township area reminiscent of a city were built to fully reflect the modern beauty in good harmony with the natural forests of Mt Paektu.

Valuable experience and lessons for the building of local areas have been gained and a precious foundation, a revolutionary springboard for the brilliant realization of the Party’s idea of local construction, was laid in such a gigantic campaign for creation as the building of Samjiyon County, he noted.

We should continue to step up the great construction campaigns that set an example and are of weighty significance so as to develop local construction in all the areas of our country in accordance with the Juche-based architectural aesthetic idea to well preserve their own features, he said.

Noting that a new history of changes of Samjiyon County has been made thanks to the utmost care and loyal sweats of the people across the country for the great holy land, he made rounds of various streets and districts of the township area for a long time to learn in detail about the construction and preparations for the operation of public catering outlets.

He directed the construction of the Samjiyon County People’s Hospital and Dental Hospital.

He acquainted himself with the medical group and preparations of the Samjiyon County People’s Hospital.

He inspected the Samjiyon Blueberry Drink Factory.

Noting that the second-stage construction of Samjiyon County is completed as a whole, he said with great pleasure that the township area of Samjiyon County is spectacular and underwent a dramatic change in the true sense of the word.

Saying that he missed showing Chairman Kim Jong Il the changes in the northern tip of the country, he pointed out that he felt much easier with the thought that he fulfilled the duty as a soldier and child even a bit, though belatedly.

The situation of the country is difficult owing to the ceaseless sanctions and pressure by the hostile forces and there are many hardships and trials facing us, but our people grew stronger through the trials and found their own way of development and learned how to always win in the face of trials, he pointed out.

He extended deep thanks and warm congratulations to all the builders for having built a model mountainous city without parallel in the world, ideal example so as to defend the dignity of the Party and safeguard the existence of the State despite all sorts of ordeals and hardship at the most crucial time in history.

Saying that the pain the U.S.-led anti-DPRK hostile forces inflicted upon the Korean people is no longer pain, but it turned into their anger, he stressed that whenever the enemies try to strangle us with the chain of pressure, we should pave the way with our own efforts to continue to live well under the banner of the great spirit of self-reliance so that the enemies feel a pain in their stomach and head.

Saying that we should neither want help from anyone nor lend an ear to any temptation, he stressed that we should choose the prosperity based on our own efforts only as the immutable road of development and hold higher the banner of self-reliance as we do.

That no matter what persistent efforts the enemy make, we can live well with our own efforts and pave the avenue to development and prosperity in our own way is a review of the year 2019 that has brought about a higher leap forward, miracles and feats despite trials and difficulties, he noted with conviction.

He set forth the tasks for wrapping up well the second-stage project of sprucing up Samjiyon County and those for the third-stage project aimed at giving face-lift to the surrounding areas and farms.

He earnestly called upon everyone to complete without fail the construction of Samjiyon County till the 75th Party founding anniversary by bravely dashing forward with confidence in and optimism about victory and thus turn the native county of Chairman Kim Jong Il into the best socialist land of bliss in the world.

He was accompanied by senior officials of the WPK Central Committee Jo Yong Won, Kim Yo Jong, Ri Jong Nam, Yu Jin, Pak Song Chol, Hong Yong Song and Hyon Song Wol, and Ma Won Chun, director of a bureau of the State Affairs Commission.
