Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, provided field guidance to the completed apartment houses for educators of Kim Chaek University of Technology.
Watching with satisfaction the twin 46-storyed apartment houses, he noted with pleasure that they look like sailing ships on the River Taedong and they are attractive as their outer walls are covered with heat ray reflection glass.
He expressed great satisfaction, saying that the apartment houses for educators of Kim Chaek University of Technology are the structures which reflect the WPK’s idea of attaching importance to education and talents and splendid edifices which have a perfect harmony of the Juche character and national identity, originality, convenience and formative art and a great icon demonstrating before the world the daily developing architecture of Songun Korea.
He acquainted himself in detail with their construction, going round flat No.1 on the fourth floor at the entrance No. 1 of the apartment houses and flat No. 1 on the 45th floor of the apartment houses and shops, restaurants, etc. built on the ground floor.
He said with pleasure that flats have good and convenient cupboards, bookshelves, sofas, beds and other quality furniture and fixtures provided by the party and if color TV sets are added to them, not only educators but their wives and children will like them very much.
He was pleased that a geothermal cooling and heating system has been introduced into the apartment houses so that settlers can live in cool rooms in summer and in warm rooms in winter.
He repeatedly and highly praised the soldier-builders of a guards unit and hero unit for successfully completing the apartment houses. He extended the KPA supreme commander’s thanks to KPA unit 267 for performing new miracles and feats as pace-setters of the times.
Enjoying a bird’s-eye view of Pyongyang City taking on more magnificent and modern looks as the days go by on the 45th floor, he set forth tasks and ways of turning the Mirae Scientists Street being built along the bank of the River Taedong into a world-class scientists street.
He told officials to let educators quickly move into new flats as they were completed as intended by the party, asking them to convey without fail his best wishes to teachers and researchers for their pleasant and happy life in their new flats. He promised to visit their families in the future.
He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, secretary of the C. C., the WPK, and Han Kwang Sang, department director of the C. C., the WPK.
