Kim Jong Un, supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, climbed the top of Mt. Paektu at dawn of Saturday, together with the members of KPA fighter pilots’ expedition of the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt. Paektu.
With a broad smile on his face, the Supreme Commander said that the looks of Mt. Paektu is impressive and the sunrise over Mt. Paektu is a charming and beautiful sight rare to be seen, adding the new morning of Korea dawns from Mt. Paektu.
Mt. Paektu is the ancestral mountain and the sacred mountain of revolution associated with the soul of the Korean nation and suggesting the spirit of Songun Korea, and it is the cradle of the Korean revolution, the symbol of victory and the eternal beacon of the Songun (army-first) revolution, he said, adding:
When one climbs snow-stormy Mt. Paektu and undergoes the blizzards over it, one can experience its real spirit and harden the resolution to accomplish the Korean revolution. Climbing Mt. Paektu provides precious mental pabulum more powerful than any kind of nuclear weapon and it is the way for carrying forward the revolutionary traditions of Paektu and giving steady continuity to the glorious Korean revolution.
The revolutionary spirit of Paektu, the spirit of the blizzards of Paektu, is the noble spirit the army and people of the DPRK should keep in their minds forever, he said, adding that they will have nothing to fear and they will do everything when they live in the spirit.
Saying that the Korean revolution started in Mt. Paektu is not yet over, he expressed expectation and belief that the fighter pilots would fully discharge their mission as heirs to the Songun revolution. And he had a photo session with them on the top of Mt. Paektu.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Choe Ryong Hae, Kim Yang Gon, Ri Jae Il and Ri Pyong Chol.
