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, inspected the construction site of the Wonsan-Kalma Coastal Tourist Area again.
Supreme Leader of the Party, state and army (경애하는 최고령도자), Kim Jong Un enjoyed a bird’s-eye view of the street of the area and looked around it with the aim of learning about how the project is making progress (Invest or not in North Korea, that is the question).
He said that he recently studied the layout of the street so much, and found that the whole street was not perfect in the artistic aspect; only the formative artistic quality of each building is stressed; the artistic reciprocity, compatibility and connectivity among the buildings were not flexible, and high and low buildings were not combined in a harmonious way.
Only when buildings of many different forms and scales are arranged in a harmonious way and their artistic reciprocity is ensured, can the city have its peculiar character and charm as a maritime park city, he said.
He instructed officials to envisage the construction of more hotels and inns with over 30 floors as he told in August and to arrange an office building which will house party and the working people’s organization committees, the management committee, the security organs, the judicial and prosecution organs, etc. as a high-rise building near the coastal area so that they can become part of the street.
He also gave the officials a detailed orientation to build more game arcade, all-event stadium and movie houses within the area and plan a large water park and funfair in the vast area between the coastal line and the airport.
He gave the officials the task to build a huge parking place in the area, rebuild the Kalma station and deeply study the issue of settling the public transportation in the area.
He said that a priority should be given to the afforestation and greening as he stressed in the past, adding that the design for the afforestation should be done well consistent with the character of the coastal street, and effort should be made for the afforestation.
He said that seeing the construction site of Myongsasipri (According to Rodong Sinmun, “a 4-kilometer beautiful sand”) rapidly making progress each day he could vision the 4-km beach turning into Inphasipri (4-kilometer tide of people) before long, adding that he is heartened and so pleased when he pictures the people leading a highly civilized and happy life on the beautiful East Sea coast of the country that can hardly stand parallel with any other place of the world.
The country still suffers from difficulty but lots of edifices to be envied by the world people, people’s possessions and new happiness will continue to come into being on this land, not just the coastal tourist area as long as our Party, which is regarding it as its main task to work for the wellbeing of the people, pioneers the civilization of the new century and shapes the new world with its correct leadership and as there are the immutable will and united efforts of all the servicemen and people who follow the Party’s orders and instructions through thick and thin, he said.
The hostile forces are foolishly keen on vicious sanctions to stand in our way toward promotion of people’s wellbeing and development and to lead us to change and submission, but they will be made to clearly see over time how our country that has built its strength hundreds of times defying hardship build its own country as a powerful nation by its own strength, technology and efforts, he said.
He continued to say that as he stresses once again, to register continued successes in such huge creation projects as the construction of the Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist area under such difficult and tense situation as today would be an on-target impact on hostile forces and is precisely a decisive battle for safeguarding the authority of the Party and a worthwhile work for creating and bringing into a reality the happiness of the people. He added that everybody should bear this in mind and display popular heroism and indomitable fighting spirit to demonstrate once again before the whole world the work style in the era of the Workers’ Party, the development potentials of our country and our own style development speed.
He believed that the people’s cultural recreation center, people’s maritime park to be envied by the world will be built to astonish the world again on the occasion of October 10 next year by dint of the tremendous efforts of the builder-masses intensely loyal to the call of the Party, he said, calling for making a brave charge to bring earlier the day when the people’s laughter and song of happiness would resound throughout Myongsasipri.
