Kim Jong Il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), called on the army to develop sideline economy, the official Rodong Sinmun daily newspaper reported Tuesday.

The Korean People's Army should "actively develop the sideline economy to provide the soldiers with better living conditions," said Kim, while inspecting KPA units.

He also urged the KPA to "thoroughly establish revolutionary military discipline," in order to "boost combat capability."

Kim has made several inspections on KPA units since the beginning of August.
