Kim Jong Un Inspects KPA Unit 3870
Pyongyang, January 20 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Workers' Party of Korea, state and army of the DPRK, inspected KPA Unit 3870 honored with the title of the O Jung Hup-led Seventh Regiment.

He waved back to the enthusiastically cheering service personnel before having a photo session with them.

He learned about the unit's performance of duty and training.

Praising the unit for having prepared all its service personnel as a-match-for-a hundred combatants through the intensified training in hearty response to the Party's slogan "Training Is Also a Battle!" he highly appreciated their militant spirit of training, the spirit of thinking of preparations for combat only awake or asleep.

He set forth the tasks to be carried out to bolster the combat capability of the unit.

He looked round the soldiers' hall, mess hall and various other places to take deep care of their living.

He dropped in at a library and stressed the need to send more must books to the soldiers. Once they finish their service in the army, they should be let to acquire the same ample knowledge as college or university graduates', he noted, underscoring the need to prepare all service personnel as Songun revolutionary fighters equipped with the spirit of devotedly defending the socialist homeland.

He praised the unit for splendidly building the soldiers' hall and constructing its facade well.

He personally tasted bean paste produced by the unit itself and learned about the use of the agro-stock farm and the general processing center built by it and its other supply service facilities. He repeatedly praised its commanding officers for doing a lot of work by fully displaying the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.

Walking the compound of the barracks, he said the service personnel of the unit successfully spruced up the barracks and areas around it as required by the Songun era and as befitting the creators of the revolutionary soldier culture in the Songun era.

This unit set an example not only in combat and political training but in all aspects including command and management of the unit and its supply service, he noted, adding all the service personnel glorifying their precious youth after turning out to defend the country are excellent revolutionaries and precious treasures of the country.

Noting that such traits of revolutionary comradeship whereby commanding officers love their soldiers like their real younger brothers while the latter follow the former like their eldest brothers and sisters and help and lead each other along are in fuller bloom, he said that this is the proud tradition and traits of the heroic KPA, the army of the party and the revolution.

He was accompanied by KPA Generals Kim Myong Guk and Kim Won Hong and KPA Lieut. General Ri Tu Song.
