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, gave field guidance to Samjiyon County.

Supreme Leader of the Party, state and army Kim Jong Un walked round the township of Samjiyon County under construction to learn about how the construction is now underway.

The builders have made much progress in the project despite the cold weather in winter in the northern part of the country, he said, adding that the appearance of the township has changed so much in several months. He said in full conviction that if the construction is vigorously pushed forward at the current speed, the project could be finished by the appointed time as scheduled by the Party and that its prospect is clearly looking up.

He underlined the need to accurately set the monthly targets for each process and wage a dynamic struggle for completing the second-stage construction projects as planned without fail by inspiring all the builders, calling for responsible direction and supervision of the construction.

He visited the family of triplet sisters Jang Un Hye, Jang Chung Sil and Jang Po Dap who moved to a new house built in the township.

Being told about the fact that the triplet sisters left their native Pyongyang for Mt Paektu area to participate in the construction of Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station and settled down in Samjiyon County with a pure determination to spruce up Chairman Kim Jong Il‘s native county, he said that they are admirable, and praised their deed as excellent virtue and model of the young people produced by the times. Asking them to write a letter to him when they marry good men, he highly appreciated them for making an excellent decision to live a worthy life in their youthful days and gave them a pep talk.

He looked round the Samjiyon Blueberry Drink Factory and Samjiyon County Junior Middle School nearing completion.

He said that the construction of the factory and school as well as the dwelling house he just visited were perfect.

He gave field guidance to the Samjiyon Potato Farina Production Factory again.

He acquainted himself with the operation of the factory, including the installation of potato-processing facilities and the production of potato farina, making rounds of several workshops.

The Party has paid much effort to building the factory, so it is important to properly run it to be beneficial to not only the people in the county but also other people across the country, he said, and indicated the ways to improve the management and operation of the factory and its operation strategy.

Watching a large pile of potato farina amounting to thousands tons with a broad smile on his face, he said with great satisfaction that potatoes heaped up in storehouse last year were turned into a mountain of potato farina that looked great.

He said to leading officials of the headquarters of the construction of Samjiyon County and the provincial and county party committees and other officials accompanying him that the construction of Samjiyon County is a fierce class and political struggle against the hostile forces seeking to check the advance of the DPRK and that the victory in the construction would be a demonstration of its might and economic potentials.

He underlined the need to inspire the entire Party and the whole country as well as builders to perfect the construction of Samjiyon County till the 75th founding anniversary of the Party, so as to turn the county, the yard of the old home for the revolution, into a highly-civilized mountainous city, a typical county which no one can imitate and the richest county in the country.

He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, vice department director of the WPK Central Committee.
