Kim Jong Un's Activities

Guidance to Flight Drill for Inspection ofKPA Air and Anti-Aircraft Force

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, guided a flight drill for inspection of airmen of the KPA Air and Anti-Aircraft Force.

Units 1017, 447 and 458 of the KPA Air and Anti-Aircraft Force took part in the drill.

The drill involved taking-off and landing on the highway-airfield, flight for intercepting targets in the air and demonstration of special aerobatics.


Statement & Commentary

Colonial Stooges 

It was agreed to extend indefinitely the transfer of the right to wartime operation control (OPECON) at the south Korea-US annual security consultative meeting held in Washington on October 24.

The indefinite extension of the transfer of the right to OPECON is an act of treachery as it fully revealed the intention of the present south Korean authorities to allow the US to keep its forces in south Korea indefinitely, strengthen its colonial rule over south Korea and more frantically pursue confrontation with the fellow countrymen and war moves against the north, utterly indifferent to the national dignity and self-esteem.

Military sovereignty is one of the most important criteria in exercising the sovereignty of the nation and if a country is increasingly dependent on other country in military affairs, it is bound to be accompanied by political subjugation.


Economy / Trade

Labour Feats Are Created 

When you are driving on the Pyongyang-Hyangsan Tourist Road along the Chongchon River, which marks the boundary between the middle and northern parts in western Korea, you will see the construction sites of power stations making magnificent appearance.

They are some of the power stations in tiers which are under construction, extending for nearly 40% of the 217-km-long river.

The Workers’ Party of Korea and the government of the DPRK mapped out a plan of increasing electric power generation with water resources rich in the country as the main. To realize the plan, the builders broke the ground at the same time in ten places along the river at the outset of last year.

Mt. Ryongak (1)

Mt. Ryongak is situated between Ryongaksan-dong, Ryongsan-dong and Ryongbong-ri in Mangyongdae District, Pyongyang. Standing 292 m above sea level, the mountain is topped by a curiously-shaped rocky cliff. Various kinds of flowers bloom from season to season, green forests, scarlet-tinged maple leaves in autumn and the like make up superb scenery. Small wonder that the mountain is known as “Mt. Kumgang in Pyongyang.” The name of Ryongak comes from the shape of the mountain which looks like a dragon on the point of soaring into the air. Possessed of 20-odd peaks of extraordinary beauty—including Tae and Sol peaks—and tens of well-wooded valleys, the mountain has trimmed up its features for ages.

At present over 600 species of plants are distributed there. Forests are mostly made up of pine trees, and there are also some mixed forests including oak trees. Also visible are rare plants that consist in only one species of one genus in Korea. In spring the fragrant smell of flowers floats in the air and in autumn the whole mountain is ablaze with autumnal tints, thus presenting an enchanting view.

Mt. Ryongak has a number of important trees. One of them is the Ryongaksan zelkova which stands next to the Pobun Hermitage. The 500-odd-year-old tree was designated as State Natural Monument No. 19 for its curious shape and pedagogical importance. It is 18 m tall, its trunk being 5 m round at the breast height and its bottom girth 7.1 m. Its trunk forks off into three at the height of 6 m. Another monumental tree is Toona sinensis Roem. It has been growing since around the year 1900. It was designated as State Natural Monument No. 20 because it indicates the northern limit of the kind’s distribution in the western region of Korea and it is of significance in conducting research into its specific features related to biology and botanical distribution and in giving an additional charm to the local scenery. It is 12 m high, its girth being 1.9 m at the bottom and approximately 1.5 m at the breast height. Speaking of the monumental ginkgo tree in Mt. Ryongak, it has grown for over 500 years along with the Pobun Hermitage boasting of its long history. At first three young ginkgo trees were planted, but in the course of their growth over a long period of time, these trees gradually put themselves together to get into one. The monument is of great importance not only in scientific research but also in view of the scenery of Mt. Ryongak. Accordingly, it was designated as State Natural Monument No. 472. It is 28 m high and the trunk is 3.7 m round at the bottom. The Sophora japonica L., standing in front of the Pobun Hermitage, has grown spontaneously since around the year 1840. Designated as State Natural Monument No. 22 on account of its importance in scientific research, it is now under protection. It is 16.5 m high, its bottom girth being 2.6 m and its girth at the breast height 2.2 m. The main branches come out at the height of 4.5 m and the crown looks like a round umbrella.
