Kim Jong Un Inspects Wolnae Islet Defence Detachment
Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, inspected the Wolnae Islet Defence Detachment now being successfully face-lifted as required by the Songun era.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Ri Yong Gil, Jang Jong Nam, Pak Jong Chon, Pak Thae Song, Hwang Pyong So and Ma Won Chun.

He first went round the construction site of the barracks.

Feasting his eyes on the nice looking barracks from close and far distances, he said that the buildings would look attractive and would be liked by soldiers if their outside walls are colorfully painted to match the environment.

After looking round the newly built command and office of the commander of the detachment, he dropped in at the education room and learned about its width and length and its accommodation capacity.

He called for building well the education room to suit the sentiments of soldiers and their requirements so that it may prove effective as a political and ideological education base.

He went round bedroom, wash-cum-bath room and other places one by one.

He noted that to newly build the islet for the detachment is an important work to provide good living conditions to the soldiers who spend their youth at a remote islet post and turn the outpost for defending the country into an impregnable fortress.

He took necessary measures to successfully complete the building of barracks of the detachment.

Then he looked round the district of dwelling houses.

Feasting his eyes on the dwelling houses standing in rows, he said that when the construction is completed, a dramatic change will take place in the detachment.

At the Wolnae Health House he looked round a bathroom, barber's room and beauty salon. He was pleased that the house was well designed and constructed and good finishing building materials were used for it.

He looked round a kindergarten and a school and gave instructions to build them well to suit children's minds and erect fences around the houses in such a way as to make them look nice and peculiar.

I am pleased to see lots of trees on the islet, he said, calling for planting more trees there to turn it into a woodland.

He mounted the observation post to learn in detail about the enemy's current situation. Going round fire positions, he gave precious instructions on always making thorough-going combat preparations as required by a modern warfare.

He expressed satisfaction over the fact that the detachment modernized the observation post and turned all fire positions into an impregnable fortress, thus making the islet an unsinkable battleship.

He had a photo taken with soldiers and military families of the detachment. He took the children on the islet post to his arms and showed warm loving care for them.
