Today, the army and people of the DPRK are making concerted efforts to push ahead with construction projects all across the country, including the construction of 10 000 flats and the residential district of terraced apartment buildings on the bank of the Pothong River in the capital city of Pyongyang.
The traditions of great army-people unity created in the days of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle constituted the powerful sword and the root of socialist society which brought about victory and miracles in the whole course of the Korean revolution. The great army-people unity, based on the ennobling spirit with which the civilians render wholehearted assistance to the army and the service personnel sacrifice their lives without hesitation for the sake of the former, has now become a national trait of the country.
The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un delivered a speech at the military parade held in celebration of the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung in April Juche 101 (2012). In his speech he underlined the need for the Korean People’s Army to be always the prime mover and pioneer in consolidating the great army-people unity by inheriting the traditions of the anti-Japanese guerrilla army and continue to hold high the slogan “Help the people!” presented by General Kim Jong Il.
Having set 2012 as the year dedicated to the people, he ensured that the KPA fulfilled its duty as the revolutionary army by carrying out in a short period such gigantic projects as the renovation of the Mangyongdae and Taesongsan amusement parks, improvement of the Hapjang River, dredging of the Pothong River and building of its embankments.
During his visit to the completed Sci-Tech Complex in October Juche 104 (2015), he said that it was another monumental structure of our era all aspects of which we could be proud of in the eyes of the world. The completion of such a huge project at the highest level and in a short span of time was attributable to the great army-people unity, a treasured sword for invincibility of Juche Korea, he stressed.
He made sure that the army-people joint operations served as the mode of struggle pervading the whole society and the powerful weapon for boosting the development of the times in all units and all sectors. Under his close concern, a large number of monumental structures, including Samjiyon City, the Jungphyong Vegetable Greenhouse Farm and Tree Nursery, Masikryong Ski Resort, Mirim Riding Club, Munsu Water Park and Yangdok Hot Spring Resort, mushroomed in different parts of the country.
Not are these all. Last year alone, he inspected the areas hit by successive floods and typhoons to learn in detail about them. He saw to it that the powerful construction forces of the KPA were promptly dispatched to the damaged areas to clear away the traces of natural disasters and build cultured socialist rural villages and dwelling houses in a short period of time through the concerted efforts of the army and the people.
The great army-people unity centred on the leader is the source of inexhaustible strength of the DPRK which is dynamically stepping up the historic march towards a fresh victory in socialist construction.
