He was accompanied by Kim Jong Un, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the WPK, KPA Vice Marshal Ri Yong Ho, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee and chief of the KPA General Staff, Jang Song Thaek, alternate member of the Political Bureau of the C.C., the WPK and vice-chairman of the NDC, Kim Kyong Ok, first vice department director of the C.C, the WPK, KPA Generals Kim Won Hong, Pak Jae Gyong and Hyon Chol Hae and staff members of the KPA Supreme Command.

After receiving a salute, he learned about the performance of the unit's guard duty and preparations for combat and political trainings for the new year.

He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the commanding officers and servicepersons of the unit have turned all operational theatres into impregnable fortresses to devotedly protect the Party, the revolution, the country and its people and firmly guarantee the great revolutionary surge with a powerful military force and are fully prepared to beat back any enemy's surprise invasion in good time.

He praised them for standing firm guard over the forefront of the country with strong fighting spirit and faith in sure victory to wipe out all enemies on this land with just retaliatory blows and get the Korean people's long-pent up grudge settled without fail if they disturb the DPRK's legitimate exercise of sovereignty through reckless saber-rattling.
