DPRK state media reported on 9 February (Friday) that VMar Choe Ryong Hae, Director of the Korean People’s Army [KPA] General Political Department, visited the construction of the Munsu Wading Pool in Pyongyang.  The construction of the wading pool was initiated during a ceremony (attended by Minister of the People’s Armed Forces Gen. Kim Kyong Sik), KPA officers and service members on 8 February (Thursday) after “Kim Jong Un gave a series of earnest instructions on building the Munsu Wading Pool at the behest of leader Kim Jong Il and called on the army to undertake the project and demonstrate its might as the army of the party and the people once again.”  During his visit Choe “encouraged soldier-builders who are making innovations in the construction of the wading pool true to the behest of leader Kim Jong Il and the order of the dear respected Kim Jong Un.”  He toured the construction site and “acquainted himself in detail with issues arising in the construction and took measures.”  According to KCNA Choe Ryong Hae  “stressed that it is the mission of the army of the party and the revolutionary army to implement the order of Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un to the letter,” “told commanding officers to take good care of their living” and “called on all soldier-builders to give full play to the spirit and stamina of the revolutionary army in the project to bring Kim Jong Un’s love for the people into full bloom.”
