Chol Pass, Symbolic of Kim Jong Il's Songun Leadership
Pyongyang, June 7 (KCNA) -- The Kosan Fruit Farm in Kangwon Province, the DPRK, is turning to be a gigantic fruit producer.

Some days ago, the dear respected Kim Jong Un visited the fruit farm and said it is meaningful, indeed, that a large orchard has made its appearance at the foot of Chol Pass symbolic of the Songun (military-first) revolutionary leadership, adding a fresh fairyland called "sea of apples at foot of Chol Pass" will spring up when the project for expanding the capacity of the farm comes to a finish and a sea of apples is unfolded there.

The 32-kilometer-long Chol Pass consists of a range of steep uphill and downhill cliffs.

The Korean people call the pass a symbol of the Songun leadership.

In the 1990s, the U.S.-led imperialist forces made every conceivable effort to stifle the DPRK, which was invariably holding the banner of independence and the banner of socialism.

To cope with it, leader Kim Jong Il opted for enforcing Songun politics and made ceaseless inspection tours of the Korean People's Army units over the pass.

One day in March Juche 85 (1996), he personally drove the car on the pass covered with wet snow.

His Songun politics led the Korean-style socialism to make a steady headway.

Thanks to the politics, the KPA has now developed into a matchless powerful army and the DPRK has become a nuclear state.

A series of emotion-packed events were witnessed in the country and a number of edifies have been built for the people's wellbeing.

The DPRK people, well aware of the might of Songun politics, are now dynamically working to implement the line of the Workers' Party of Korea on simultaneously carrying on the economic construction and the building of nuclear forces.
