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, gave on-the-spot guidance to the work of developing Ssuk Islet.
Touring the islet, he set forth tasks and ways for developing the islet.
Underlining the need to develop the islet in a peculiar style as required by the new century, which is a pride of Pyongyang along with Rungna and Yanggak islets, he called for turning the islet associated with the feats of President Kim Il Sung into the one for scientific and technological study center.
Saying that demand for the dissemination of science and technology is increasing as the day goes by, Kim Jong Un noted that the Party determined to build a modern scientific and technological study center on the islet to meet the requirements of the people.
The center to be built on the islet will function not only as a comprehensive data base for scientific and technological achievements made by mankind but also as a multi-purpose scientific and technological service center, which makes it possible to use all data and share and exchange information through a network any time, he noted.
He instructed officials to build the center at the highest level in the aspects of architectural beauty, formative art and architectural contents so that it may appear a building of national treasure and fashionable and world-class one.
Feasting his eyes on both banks of the River Taedong, he said the site was a very good place and the center to be built on the islet would serve as another springboard from which the country would surpass the world’s level. He added he felt pleased to foresee the center.
Noting that the scientific and technological study center to be built on the islet is another gift of the WPK for the people, he specified measures for designing, construction and the supply of building materials, etc.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Choe Thae Bok, Choe Ryong Hae and Ma Won Chun.
