Chairman Kim Jong Il called on a family of discharged soldiers in Taehongdan County, Ryanggang Province, in March Juche 89(2000).
Acknowledging the bow of the grateful couple of discharged soldiers with a benevolent smile, he asked them when they got married.
As the young husband shyly hesitated to reply, an official told him that they got married last year and the wife was now pregnant.
Then the Chairman happily said it was the most welcome news.
The most welcome news!
He regarded the birth of children who would shoulder the future of Taehongdan as the happiest event for a brighter future of the county.
