Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army (KPA), gave field guidance to the construction site of the Yonphung Rest Home for Scientists again.
Enjoying with satisfaction the panoramic view of the construction site, he said he felt as if he were seeing the completed rest home which looks like a picture as saying “Well begun is half done” goes. He praised the soldier-builders of KPA Unit 267 for being distinguished in their work as they consider it a rule to unconditionally carry out what the party determines to do.
Going round the general service center, rest home buildings and other places, he learned in detail about the construction.
He was pleased that they are not only building structures in new style to meet the desire, requirements, emotion and taste of the Korean people as required by the design ratified by the party but also constructing the rest home buildings and various service facilities like a de luxe hotel to the best convenience of scientists and outdoor and indoor wading pools and multi-purpose outdoor playing ground on the highest level.
The Marshal said:
What pleased me in particular in the construction project was that they are building the interior and exterior of the rest home in a peculiar style, avoiding repetition. It is peculiar that the two separate buildings of the rest home have been linked by a corridor access and the roofing materials, the color of the wall tiles and the pillars covered with stones look nice.
When the construction of Yonphung Rest Home for Scientists, Wisong Scientists Street and Apartment Houses for Educators of Kim Chaek University of Technology are completed on the occasion of the founding anniversary of the WPK (October 10), the party’s policy of attaching importance to science and talents will be fully demonstrated before the whole world, he noted.
He set forth tasks to complete the project at the best level such as satisfactorily providing the rest home with varieties of equipment, fixtures and apparatuses, introducing a geothermal cooling and heating system, planting turf and garden flowers and successfully arranging the environment of the rest home and the embankment on the shore of Lake Yonphung.
Noting that October 10 is near at hand, he told officials once again to finish the construction of the rest home as scheduled by pushing ahead with the project in a three-dimensional and finish-one-by-one method and thus provide it to scientists.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ma Won Chun and Kim Jong Gwan.
