Kim Jong Il Inspects Drill Ground of Sub-Unit of KPA
Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il inspected a drill ground of a sub-unit of KPA Unit 534.

Conducted by the commander of the sub-unit, he went round training apparatuses and facilities of the unit for a long while before watching the training of its soldiers.

After watching the training of the brave soldiers, he expressed his satisfaction over the fact that all the commanding officers and men of the sub-unit have grown to be a-match-for-a hundred fighters capable of firmly defending the socialist motherland and set forth the tasks to be fulfilled to boost its combat capability in every way.

They have cultivated their Herculean strength to emerge ever- victorious in the glorious course of traversing the road of victory, while working miracles of history despite any severe storm and stress under the uplifted banner of Songun, he said, adding that no force on earth can match this might of the People's Army.

Noting that their enthusiasm for training is very strong, he underscored the need for the unit to pay primary attention to the combat and political training at all times, bearing in mind that it is the basic way of boosting the matchless capability of the army to intensify it.

Then he met Ri Kwang and Kim Son A and other soldiers who set an example in the training and congratulated them on their successes in the training. He took warm care of their service and living.

He highly appreciated the successes made by the sub-unit, noting that it has successfully spruced up the drill ground in a peculiar manner and put the training on a regular basis and built modern entertainment and educational and supply service facilities.

He had a picture taken with the servicepersons of the sub-unit.

He was accompanied by KPA Generals Hyon Chol Hae, Ri Myong Su and Kim Myong Guk.
