Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to Taedonggang Terrapin Farm
Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the Taedonggang Terrapin Farm.

The Taedonggang Terrapin Farm is a big base for breeding terrapin built on the personal initiative of leader Kim Jong Il who exerted efforts to provide the people with tasty and nutritious terrapin widely known as precious tonic from olden times.

Going round various places of the farm, he learnt in detail about its production and management and pointed to the serious shortcomings manifested in its work.

"It is hard to understand that the farm visited by Kim Jong Il did not arrange even the room for the education in the revolutionary history and the employees who failed to bear deep in their minds his leadership exploits could hardly perform their role as masters in production", he noted, adding the atmosphere of the farm was completely different from those other farms he has visited.

"Everything goes well, people substantially benefit from the results of the implementation of the party policies and hurrah for the WPK and socialism are heard from the units which consider it as the main line to uphold and glorify the leadership exploits of the great leaders and the party but only sighs of defeatists come from those units which failed to do so and they may get bogged down even if all conditions are provided", he said, stressing this is the lesson one can draw from their work style.

Recalling that the party sent fries of freshwater lobsters to the farm so that it might breed them and took necessary measures for it but it failed to complete a breeding ground though two years have passed since then, he strongly criticized the shortcoming of its officials as a manifestation of incompetence, outmoded way of thinking and irresponsible work style.

Reproaching the farm for not doing even the work for updating its operation, he queried its officials if they could call its installing of just cameras monitoring the interior of the breeding ground without establishing a system for measuring the quality of water and automatically adjusting it a combined control room and modernization.

He said that all service personnel and people of the country are working hard round the clock to make good presents to the 70th founding anniversary of the WPK but he could hardly understand with what success the officials and employees of the farm would like to greet the October festival.

Noting that if officials work the way those of the farm do, it is impossible to realize the desire of Kim Jong Il and they may bring such grave consequences as impairing the prestige of the party in the end, he called for turning the farm into the one from which people substantially benefit and a model unit in the nation's cultivation which introduces advanced breeding methods and technology into its operation.

He indicated tasks and ways for drastically improving the work on the farm such as the issue of taking a proper measure for supplying electricity for safe breeding, regardless of seasons, the issues of producing hatching equipment with indigenous efforts and technology, building perfect anti-epidemic facilities and putting overall production processes on an automatic basis, the issue of locally producing food required for breeding 100 per cent and the issue of intensifying the research into putting breeding on a scientific basis.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, O Su Yong, Ri Jae Il and Jo Yong Won.
