Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, met the participants in the 4th National Meeting of Activists in Agricultural Field and had a photo session with them.
When Kim Jong Un arrived at the venue of the photo session, all the participants enthusiastically welcomed him.
He highly praised the agricultural workers, rural junior officials and scientists and technicians for displaying patriotism with pure conscience to bring about rich harvest on the fields of the socialist country, cherishing the behests of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who worked heart and soul to solve the food problem of the people, walking on farm roads all their lives.
He warmly encouraged those who received the title of Labor Hero, the highest honor of the DPRK citizen, for their vanguard role in the drive for implementing the Party’s farming-first policy, saying that he would meet them again after reaping richer harvest next year.
He had a photo session with the participants, expressing expectation and belief that the participants in the meeting would stage a stronger campaign for the increased grain production throughout the country by ceaselessly increasing the number of high-yield farms, work-teams and sub-workteams and the ranks of high-yield farmers, bearing deep in mind the intention of the Party Central Committee which set the agricultural front as the major thrust in the building of an economic power.
Present there were leading officials of the Party and the government Choe Ryong Hae, Pak Pong Ju, Ro Tu Chol, Pak Thae Dok, Kim Nung O, Ko In Ho, Ri Chol Man and Kwak Pom Gi and the chairpersons of the provincial party committees.
