DPRK leader Kim Jong Un inspects Panmunjom


15:02, March 04, 2012

PYONGYANG, March 4 (Xinhua) -- Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un has recently visited the truce village of Panmunjom, the official news agency KCNA reported Sunday.

Kim, supreme commander of the Korean People's Army and supreme leader of the Workers' Party of Korea, said he was greatly satisfied that all the soldiers on the outpost were "following every move of the enemies with vigilance and performing their combat duties in a responsible manner," the KCNA said.

The soldiers should "always maintain the maximum alertness as they are standing in confrontation with the enemies at all times," he said during an inspection tour of Panmunjom, where the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement was signed.

During the inspection, Kim visited several places at Panmunjom, including the Monument to President Kim Il Sung's Signature, the Phanmun Pavilion, and the Thongil House.

Visiting the conference room of the armistice talks and the hall where the armistice agreement was signed, he said these places should be well preserved and managed. If fighting occurs in the future, the army and people of the DPRK will force the enemies "to sign a paper of surrender, not simply putting signatures on the armistice agreement," he stressed.

He gave a pair of binoculars, an automatic rifle and a machine-gun to the soldiers as gifts, the report said.
