Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, looked round the construction site of apartment houses for educators of Kim Chaek University of Technology.
Going round the site, he learned in detail about the construction.
He was pleased to see the high-rise apartment houses. He said that the buildings with curved surface of their outer walls look like a sailing ship afloat on the River Taedong, adding that they are fashionable structures reflecting the party’s intention to steadily improve formative art in architecture and masterpieces demonstrating the architecture of the DPRK rapidly developing after the workshop for workers in the field of construction.
Noting that shops and other welfare and service facilities on the ground floor of the apartment houses look nice and stable and entrance between corridor and drawing room has been constructed well, he praised the soldier-builders for constructing them as required by the design ratified by the party.
It is the work-style of the soldier-builders of KPA Unit 267 to fully meet the requirements of the construction method and successfully ensure the safety of the structure, holding high the slogan “Let us take responsibility for the safety of the project and guarantee its absolute quality for all eternity”, he said, calling on all those in the construction field to learn from their work style.
He gave an instruction to push ahead with the frame project and inside and outside plastering and the production of furniture at the same time.
As I always emphasize, in order to achieve successes in scientific research it is necessary to solve in a responsible manner the issue of living of scientists and researchers who conduct it, he stressed.
There is nothing to spare for the educators dedicating their whole life to training talents of the country, he said, noting it is the party’s intention to build lots of such apartment houses to provide them to teachers and researchers in the future.
He underlined the need to construct more apartment houses for the teachers and researchers of Kim Chaek University of Technology so that they may conduct education and scientific research free from worries in their living.
He said a new street would be formed on the bank of the River Taedong if more apartment houses for 500 families of the educators of Kim Chaek University of Technology and service facilities appear with the apartment houses now under construction as an axis. He added that it was good to call it “Mirae Scientists Street”.
He called for making the layout of the interior and exterior of the street at the best level and thereby using their construction as an occasion in making a revolution in the construction once again. He proposed completing the construction by the Day of the Sun (birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung) next year by sending a powerful building force made up of service personnel to the construction site of the street.
He said he would examine and decide on the issue of building more apartment houses for 500 families of educators of Kim Il Sung University as soon as possible.
He called on the soldier-builders to complete the construction of the apartment houses for the educators of Kim Chaek University of Technology by the founding anniversary of the WPK so that they may be provided to educators and researchers of the university. He expressed his expectation and conviction that KPA Unit 267 would realize the intention of the WPK in practice.
He was accompanied by Choe Thae Bok, secretary of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Lieut. General Ma Won Chun, director of the Designing Department of the National Defence Commission.
