Pyongyang, September 22 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, inspected again the construction site of the Munsu Swimming Complex.
The soldier-builders are now waging a high-pitched drive day and night, pushing ahead with the project at the final phase in hearty response to the appeal of the supreme commander for successfully completing the construction by Oct. 10, the anniversary of the WPK.
He entered the lobby of the indoor swimming pool where a statue of leader Kim Jong Il will stand and praised painters of the Mansudae Art Studio for having drawn a panoramic picture of the sea shore in perspective.
At the indoor swimming pool with slides he said they look wonderful. It is good it admits sunrays, he added. He told the soldier-builders to paint the pillars of the slides with white color so that they may look fresh and nice.
He told officials to hang a large clock on the wall of the pool and set up sound equipment to add to its cheerful atmosphere.
Going round the dressing room, he said it is necessary to provide it with mirrors and hairdryers, etc. in order to ensure best convenience to the visitors. He also underscored the need to make the floor inclined.
He told them to properly furnish the complex with furniture such as amusement tables in its different places including the balcony of the restaurant.
At the indoor sporting hall where sporting and amusement facilities are available he highly praised the soldier-builders for having successfully built the hall in a brief span of time in hearty response to the order of the supreme commander though it was not included in the original design, adding that it was very good to build the hall in the indoor swimming pool and the KPA carries out whatever task assigned to it.
He noted that if volleyball and basketball courts are built and a springboard is laid in the hall, youth and children will like them.
At the outdoor swimming pool he was satisfied to see the walls of the swimming pool being decorated with pictures of seagulls, dolphins, water drops, etc.
Going round different places of the outdoor swimming pool, he learned in detail about the assembling of various types of slides and the constructed wading pools and highly appreciated the success made in it.
He told officials to build a room for first aid treatment and an observation tower so that rescue measures may be taken. The swimming complex can be inaugurated only when all these conditions are provided, he added.
He underscored the importance of taking thorough measures for protecting the complex in winter.
It is good that the complex is being built in such a way as to ensure the supply of geotherm so that the complex may consume electricity as less as possible, he noted.
He called for planting trees of good species and creating a larger area of lawn inside and around the complex.
Noting that the soldier-builders did a lot of work in just a few days, he said the completion of the complex would dramatically change the appearance of the area of Munsu. I am very pleased to picture it to myself, he added.
Saying that the dramatic change in the appearance of the area of Munsu is a miracle which can be worked only by the KPA possessed of the spirit of unconditionally carrying out any task under any circumstances, he once again highly praised the soldier-builders for their feats.
He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK and director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, Jang Song Thaek, member of the Political Bureau of the C.C., the WPK, and vice-chairman of the NDC, Pak Thae Song and Ma Won Chun, vice-department directors of the C.C., the WPK. -0-
