Research and Analysis on the DPRK Leadership
DPRK state media reported that DPRK Premier Choe Yong Rim visited the ongoing construction work at Kim Hyong Jik University of Education on 24 May (Thursday). The university’s renovation was previously inspected by Director of the Korean People’s Army [KPA] General Political Department (bureau), VMar Choe Ryong Hae, on 24 April 2012. KCNA reports:
The appearance of the university underwent a radical change thanks to the devoted efforts of the soldier-builders who carried out the huge project in the spirit of “at one go” true to the noble intention of leader Kim Jong Il and the order of Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un.
He went round the mosaic depicting the images of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il in the campus, new school buildings and other places of the university.
A consultative meeting held there discussed issues of ensuring formative art in architecture by learning from the militant spirit and creative spirit of soldier-builders and completing the installing of equipment to be used for education and other work qualitatively.
It took measures to facelift the university, a pedigree establishment for training teachers, associated with the leadership provided by the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu, and called on the related units to ensure a satisfactory supply of materials for the project.
