[nggallery id=27]Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, looked round the newly built e-library at the Exhibition of Arms and Equipment of the KPA.
He went round various rooms of the e-library to learn in detail about its construction and operation.
The design of the library is good and the best quality is ensured in its construction and, at the same time, all facilities have been provided to meet the need of science and technology, he said, expressing satisfaction over the successful construction of a modern e-library as required by the age of knowledge-based economy.
He noted that the e-library is another grand edifice in the era of Songun demonstrating the might of intellectual potential of the DPRK as it has all conditions for study and research into the latest military science on the basis of huge data base and system of cutting-edge IT.
While seeing e-books, newspapers, magazines and other books on display, he said that a lot of people would visit this place.
The exhibition and e-library are the places urgently necessary for fully equipping service persons with Korean-style unique strategy and tactics and significantly stepping up the military and technical preparations of the KPA as required by the characteristics of modern warfare and the tense situation, he added.
Underlining the need to build more edifices in the era of Songun meeting the aesthetic taste and requirements of the Korean people, he noted that to this end it is necessary to study and create new, unique and peculiar architectural styles and ensure formative art in construction.
He made the rounds of various halls and outdoor display ground of the exhibition.
He looked round with keen interest the exhibits one by one, recollecting the great Generalissimos who gave top priority to the development of defence industry for arming the KPA with modern weapons and combat and technical equipment, regarding the work to bolster up military capability as an important matter of protecting the destiny of the country and the nation and socialism.
He gave instructions to continue directing primary efforts to the development of defence industry, true to the party’s idea of attaching importance to military affairs so as to produce more ultra-modern arms and equipment capable of overpowering any enemies and steadily raising the level of modernization of weapons and combat and technical equipment of the KPA.
He mounted the newly built observation deck to command a bird’s-eye view of the exhibition and set forth important tasks to be fulfilled to manage and operate it.
He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Jang Song Thaek, Kim Ki Nam, Choe Thae Bok, Kim Yong Il, Kim Yang Gon, Kim Phyong Hae, Mun Kyong Dok, Paek Se Bong, Han Kwang Sang, Han Kwang Bok, Pak Thae Song, Kim Pyong Ho and Ma Won Chun.
