DPRK state media reported on 30 October (Tuesday) that VMar Choe Ryong Hae, Director of the Korean People’s Army [KPA] General Political Department (bureau), toured construction work at Pyongyang parks and renovation work at the Victorious Fatherland War (Korean War) Museum.  Choe first visited ongoing improvement projects at Pyongyang area parks.  KCNA reported that Choe “encouraged the soldier-builders who were fully displaying the stamina of the revolutionary army in carrying out the projects to turn major parks in Pyongyang into cultural recreation sites on the basis of the experience they gained in building the attractive Sanghung Children’s Park.”

Choe Ryong Hae toured the ongoing renovation of the Victorious Fatherland War (Korean War) Museum.  According to KCNA Choe “learned in detail about the progress made in construction, informing the commanding officers of the KPA unit engaged in the project of the importance of the project initiated by Supreme Commander of the KPA Kim Jong Un.”  Choe “encouraged the soldier-builders in pushing ahead with the large-scale frame project in the spirit of ‘at a go’ and discussed measures to ensure the quality of construction at the highest level.”

KCNA reported that “measures were adopted to minutely organize and command the project and for relevant units to provide building materials to the construction site in good time as the frame project is making rapid progress and construction operations are being conducted in a three-dimensional manner.”
