DPRK top leader calls for stronger military
PYONGYANG - Top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong-un called for strengthening the military to defend the country's security and sovereignty, the official news agency KCNA reported Sunday.
Kim made the appeal at an enlarged meeting of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Central Military Commission, which discussed ways to enhance military capability and some organizational issues.
Participants included members of the WPK Central Military Commission, staff members of the supreme command of the Korean People's Army (KPA) and commanding officers of the large combined units grouping the navy, the air force, the anti-air force and their strategic rocket force.
Kim urged them to further strengthen the KPA into "a matchless revolutionary army."
The participants were determined to "unconditionally and thoroughly" implement their military tasks, the KCNA said.
