Kim Jong Un Guides Artillery Fire of KPA Unit 851
Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's army, guided an artillery fire of the KPA Unit 851.

He received a report from its commanding officer on the plan for the artillery fire and disposition of artillery sub-units, and issued an order to start the fire.

Guns hit targets in simulated enemy position.

He said that the fire was conducted under a sudden situation given by him, adding that the artillerymen of the unit are keeping themselves ready to make a telling shot in any circumstances as they have staged training hard, keeping in their mind the party's call for increasing their firing capacity.

What is important for artillerymen in combat preparations is to become sharp shooters by strengthening their peace-time training, he said, setting forth important tasks for rounding off the preparations.

He expressed belief that the artillerymen of the unit would put spurs to the combat preparations in order to reliably protect the security of the country and happiness of the people.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Ri Yong Gil, Pak Thae Song, Hwang Pyong So, Hong Yong Chol, Yun Tong Hyon, Pak Jong Chon, Ju To Hyon and Rim Kwang Il.
