Kim Jong Un visits KPA August 25 Fishery Station and newly-built Thongchon Fish-processing Station

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the August 25 Fishery Station of the Korean People's Army (KPA) and the newly-built Thongchon Fish-processing Station.

First Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un visited the August 25 Fishery Station, a dear one which he affectionately calls the land of big fish haul and native home of fishing vessel Tanphung at all times.

After visiting the newly-built fish-processing shop, he made rounds of the already-built fish-processing shop and cold storages.

He highly praised the efforts of officials, fishermen and their families of the fishery station who work hard to make big fish hauls without fail this year, too.

He earnestly asked the officials to afford convenience in fishermen's everyday life and pay deep attention to the living of their families, not stressing the production results.

Looking round the room of the fishery station for the education in the revolutionary history, he recollected with deep emotion the path of development that the station has covered for the past six years while upholding the banner of fishery revolution under the guidance of the Party.

He said that it is necessary to effectively give the education through the room comprehensively showing the history of development of the station, which has been developed into a core unit in implementing the Party's fishery policy, so as to encourage its fishermen and employees to invariably and steadily glorify their honor of pioneer and shock brigade defending the WPK with big fish hauls as proud heroes who wrote the first page of the history of big fish hauls.

He watched an art performance given by the art group of the August 25 Fishery Station.

Expressing gratitude to the performers for deeply impressing him through their performance perfect in ideological and artistic value, he showed such great loving care as personally inviting them to Pyongyang at the end of this year.

On the same day, he inspected the newly-built Thongchon Fish-processing Station.

KPA servicepersons turned out in the drive for carrying out the instructions of the Supreme Leader to make a proud achievement of completing a new fish-processing station with the capacity of quick-freezing hundreds of tons of fish a day and cold-storing thousands of tons.

He was satisfied to see fishes being poured into the freezing and processing shops by unloading equipment and conveyor.

Watching the freezing and processing shops bristled with machines and equipment, he said that they are full of fishes and machines and he seemed to see the sea of fishes and the sea of machines. And he learnt in detail about every fish-process stage and operation of equipment.

Brightly smiling on highly cumulate fishes filling cold storages, he said that there is nothing more encouraging and pleasant for us than the continuation of the history of big fish hauls at this time when we struggle for making a breakthrough in improving the people's living standard, and repeated with delight that this year witnessed bumper crop but would see also big fish hauls.

Saying that there is nothing to spare or hesitate to do for the serviceperson's dietary life, he warmly called upon all to devote wisdom and enthusiasm in one mind to the improvement of serviceperson's standard of living by doing more possible things and turning impossibility into possibility.

He stressed that the processing station completed with much efforts should make tangible contribution to the improvement of the serviceperson's dietary life.

He was accompanied by Jang Kum Chol, department director of the WPK Central Committee, Jo Yong Won, first vice-department director of the C.C., WPK, and Ri Jong Nam, Hyon Song Wol and Hong Yong Song, vice-department directors of the C.C., WPK.
