Kim Jong Un Guides Actual Parachuting and Striking Drill of Paratrooper Units of KPA

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 Defense Commission of the DPRK, guided the actual parachuting and striking drill of paratrooper units of the KPA.

After receiving a report on the plan for the drill on the observation post, he guided it.

The paratroopers who have undergone intensive training, their hearts burning with the resolution to mercilessly wipe out enemies, accurately landed on the designated area.

He expressed great satisfaction, saying they are very good at parachuting and they have strong guts.

The paratroopers have intensified their training the way the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu, bearing in mind that they can not expect a victory in their future combat without sweat in the day-to-day trainings. They rapidly went over to their next combat action and thus carried out the order of the Supreme Commander.

Kim Jong Un highly praised them for having successfully conducted the drill by applying the Juche war method and gave instructions to be fulfilled by the KPA to round off the combat preparations.

He said that an army good at fighting would be unimaginable without drills and that if service personnel neglect training even a moment because there is no gunfire of war, they may bring irrevocable consequences in an actual battle. The KPA should make it part of their life and habit to do exercise, he added.

He stressed the need to prepare all service personnel as a-match-for-a-hundred fighters who are always ready for all services by thoroughly carrying out the training-first idea of the party, thinking of battles awake or asleep, while bearing in mind that an exercise means army and training is the first task among a hundred military tasks.

He put forward a new training method and way which would serve as guidelines for preparing service personnel to be capable of satisfactorily performing their combat duties.

He expressed expectation and belief that the service personnel would firmly guarantee the accomplishment of the Juche revolutionary cause and the building of a thriving socialist nation with arms by making sustained great efforts for stepping up the battle preparations and bolstering up the combat capability.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Pyon In Son, O Kum Chol, Ri Pyong Chol, Pang Kwan Bok and Jang Tong Un.
