Pyongyang, August 9 (KCNA) — 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, visited the construction site of the Mirim Riding Club.
After being briefed on the Mirim Riding Club in front of its master plan, he acquainted himself in detail with the progress made in the construction.
He was very satisfied to learn that the soldier-builders have done a lot of work in a brief span of time by overcoming bottlenecks and difficulties in the revolutionary soldier spirit.
He said that the appearance of the modern Mirim Riding Club would help working people and school youth and children enjoy horse riding there to have sound mentality and strong physical bodies for labor and national defence.
He set forth tasks to be fulfilled to build the club at a world level.
He stressed the need to build well a room for preserving historic relics to convey the exploits performed by leader Kim Jong Il in guiding the club and construct indoor riding exercise hall, riding school, service building and other structures to be impeccable even in the distant future.
He told officials to build modern recovery facilities where visitors may recover from fatigue after riding.
A veterinary hospital and a stockbreeding research institute should be built in order to take good care of horses and increase the number of their head, he noted, adding:
It is also necessary to take steps for successfully operating the club in a far-sighted manner while accelerating the construction of the club.
It is important to properly choose a unit for operating the club, organize a horse riders association and scrupulously do a work for providing things such as vehicles, lawn mowers and sprinkler trucks necessary for the management and operation of the club, he added.
He expressed expectation and conviction that the soldier-builders and officials concerned would successfully complete the construction of the club till the 68th anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
