Kim Jong Un Climbs Mt Paektu

Date: 12/9/2017 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) |

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, climbed Mt Paektu, the sublime mountain of revolution.

The ancestral mountain Paektu covered with white snow was displaying marvelous scene with glee at the reappearance of its great master.

When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure.

As if to give warm welcome to him who brought the “great November event” of the great Korea and show joy at the appearance of the peerlessly illustrious commander who controls the nature, the heart of the ever-changing Lake Chon on the top of Mt Paektu presented charming scenery showing magic peaks and dazzling sunshine on its clear and blue waves.

Imposingly standing on Janggun Peak, the respected Supreme Leader gave a familiar look for a while at the dizzy cliffs and the sea of trees, recalling the emotion-charged days when he realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force without yielding even a moment and with the indomitable faith and will of Paektu.

He said that he had often climbed Mt Paektu but this is the first time to have in mid-winter such nice weather, rare to be seen even in spring. The weather is so fine that we can see peaks on the shore of Lake Chon more clearly as if they are before our very eyes, he added.

His eyes reflected the strong beams of the gifted great person seeing in the majestic spirit of Mt Paektu the appearance of a powerful socialist nation which dynamically advances full of vigor without vacillation at any raving dirty wind on the planet.

He set forth the important tasks arising in better sprucing up into a center for education in the revolutionary traditions the sacred mountain of Paektu which is associated with the immoral revolutionary careers of the great leaders and serves as the mental mainstay of the invincible DPRK and the source of indomitable ideological strength.

He said that the monument to Mt Paektu and education compound should be spruced up suited to the dignity of the holy mountain of revolution and “Mt Paektu, the holy mountain of revolution”, an autograph of leader Kim Jong Il, should be displayed better heavily and politely to be seen most clearly anytime and anywhere.

He stressed the need to build a new hotel well around the Paektu Station for the convenience of those who visit Mt Paektu as well as convenient facilities for making them have photos taken at several places where a bird’s-eye view of the mountain can be obtained and have rests.

Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the C.C., WPK, vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the C.C., WPK, Kim Yong Su, department director of the WPK Central Committee, Jo Yong Won, vice department director of the C.C., WPK, Ri Sang Won, chairman of the Ryanggang Provincial Committee of the WPK, Yang Myong Chol, chairman of the Samjiyon County Committee of the WPK, and Ma Won Chun, department director of the State Affairs Commission. -0-

North Korea: The Death of Kim Jong-nam

It’s a murder plot out of a spy novel. Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korea’s unpredictable leader, was allegedly poisoned by two women assassins at Kuala Lumpur airport. All signs point to Kim Jong-un, the rogue state’s leader, as behind the murder.

101 East investigates the mysterious case, exploring the highly secretive and paranoid world of North Korea, where those who escape continue to live in fear of its reckless brutality. Given the most recent display of its missile tests, it’s a recklessness the rest of the world needs to heed.

This half-hour film by Mary Ann Jolley explains why Kim Jong-nam was assassinated and why he had likely been a target for a very long time. Also available on YouTube.
