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, provided field guidance to the October 8 Factory built as an icon and standard of the DPRK’s industrial establishments.
Enjoying a bird’s eye view of the factory, he expressed great satisfaction, saying he could hardly find any trace he saw last year, it did not look like a factory but a rest home as it turned into a thick woodland and greenery and park and the culture of workers was in full bloom in all its worksites.
He went round a monument to the revolutionary activities of the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu, hall of culture, e-library, cutting shop, finishing shop, products show room, gymnasium, Unjong health complex, canteen, rest home, workers’ hostel and various other places of the factory to learn in detail about the construction and production there.
North-targeted War Manoeuvres Should Not Be Repeated Any Longer
The US and south Korean authorities staged the provocative Ulji Freedom Guardian war manoeuvres against the north for more than ten days since August 18, driving the situation on the Korean peninsula and the inter-Korean relations into the worst phase.
The spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea in a statement issued on August 29 said that UFG was the most dangerous nuclear war manoeuvres for invading the north, to which the “tailored deterrence strategy” aimed to make a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK was applied for the first time.
This factory, located in Hanggu District, Nampho, is a producer of lubricating oil and grease used for various kinds of rolling stocks, machine tools and electric machines.
It has analysis and general production control rooms and lubricating oil, grease, transformer oil production work teams and an injection work team for packing containers.
All production lines, ranging from feeding and mixture of materials to storage, shipment and packing, and business activities are controlled by CIMS (computer integrated manufacturing system) in the general production control room.
The Sportspersons’ Apartment had crowds of visitors when Un Sim got three gold medals at an international tournament, like when Jong Sim had won the Olympic Games. One of the flats, with a floor space of a hundred and dozens of square metres, is what was allotted to Jong Sim. A wall is given to the display of her glory: there are a souvenir photograph of Jong Sim posing arm in arm with the national leader Kim Jong Un, the medal and certificate of Labour Hero, the medal and certificate of Kim Il Sung Youth Honour Prize, an ID card of delegate to the 2012 Youth Day celebrations and a souvenir photograph taken with Kim Jong Un on the occasion. There are also to be seen on the wall the more than 100 medals and diplomas the sisters have won. Their mother was honoured, too: she was invited to the 4th National Conference of Mothers as mother of the two daughters. She shed tears when the national leader met and praised the Olympic medalists as patriots, heroes and admirable people. “I could hardly believe you’re my daughters. Your parents couldn’t pick your aptitudes, but our country found it and developed you as heroes.” Then she said to Un Sim, “You must make a success of your career like your sister. That way you’ll repay for your benefit.”
Now the sisters often inwardly measure the weight they have to lift to live up to their honour. Make a smarter movement—this is the motto they keep in mind.
