Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to October 3 Factory under KPA Navy
Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the October 3 Factory under KPA Navy Unit 597.

Enjoying the panoramic view of the factory, he said that it has been so drastically face-lifted that its appearance last year could no longer be found. It is an icon and standard in the nation's field of ship repair, he added.

He went round the room for the education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the factory.

Noting that the factory today would be unthinkable without the meticulous guidance and care of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, he underscored the need for the factory to effectively conduct education in the exploits performed by the great leaders and the Party among its employees through the successfully built room for the education in the revolutionary history and room dedicated to the history.

He looked round the weak-current apparatus work-team, engine repair shop, processing shop, test operation ground, dock, wharf and other places of the factory to learn in detail about its modernization.

The updating of the factory provided a solid material and technical foundation for repairing any warship in a short span of time, he noted.

He said that the dock was successfully remodeled so that it may ensure the safest and most convenient repair of warships and the wharf and embankment projects were carried out in an impeccable manner.

A clear line of distinction between the area for production and that for workers' living was drawn to provide the workers with the best working and living conditions and various cultural and welfare facilities, sporting ground and dwelling houses for employees were successfully built to keep harmony with the coastal area, he said, adding that it looks like a health resort.

He gave precious instructions to be implemented by the factory to manage and operate, noting that the factory has a very important role to play in developing the Juche-oriented naval force.

He said that the remodeling of the factory as a modern one by our own efforts of which we can be proud was a striking demonstration of the indomitable fighting spirit and validity of the cause of the army and people of the DPRK who are waging an offensive despite difficulties and trials while resolutely smashing the desperate moves of the U.S. imperialists and their followers to stifle Korean socialism.

He expressed great expectation and conviction that the officials and workers of the factory would make positive contributions to developing the Juche-oriented naval force, noting that the defense of the territorial waters means national defense in Korea surrounded by the seas on three sides.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Myong Su, Yun Tong Hyon, Jo Yong Won, Kim Jong Sik and Ma Won Chun.
