Kim Jong Un Visits Mirim Riding Club

Pyongyang, October 20 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, visited the Mirim Riding Club built as a monumental edifice in the era of the WPK.

He went round the room for the education in the revolutionary history.

He said a portrait of leader Kim Jong Il, photos of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and other historical relics are displayed well in the room.

Going round the riding service center, indoor riding training hall, room for dissemination of riding knowledge, etc. of the club, he learnt in detail about the construction.

He said that every facility of the club fully reflected the WPK’s idea of architectural beauty which calls for designing and constructing it to suit its character and service and that all the facilities have been built in line with the standard desired by the party.

He said that the club is in harmony with natural environment as the outer walls of the buildings were plastered with pieces of logs and seats of open-air stands and resting tents, riding blocks and signposts were also made with wood.

He was satisfied to see the turf, earth-sand courses, car roads and footways built qualitatively, the man-made hill, waterfalls and pool built in a particular way to match natural beauty and the area around the club decorated by trees of good species and turf.

Pleased to see 60-odd horses sent by the party and young people enjoying horse riding, he said that when the club is opened, it will be visited by many people as horse riding is available for all seasons.

He highly praised the soldier-builders for successfully completing the construction of the club in a short span of time.

He said the construction of the club proved again that nothing is impossible to do as there are the wise leadership of the party and the People’s Army, which unconditionally and devotedly carries out anything the supreme commander is determined to do.

He extended thanks to all the soldier-builders on behalf of the supreme commander of the KPA.

Noting public service facilities including the Mirim Riding Club, Munsu Water Park, Ryukyong Dental Hospital and Okryu Children’s Hospital have been built this year, he said it is the determination of the party to build more such public facilities in the future.

He gave an instruction to hold the opening ceremony of the club at an early date so that people including youth and children may benefit from it as early as possible.

He was accompanied by KPA Vice-Marshal Choe Ryong Hae, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, and Ma Won Chun, vice department director of the Central Committee of the WPK. -0-
