Kim Il Sung’s faith in victory recalled

Pyongyang, Jul 21 (Prensa Latina) Media from from Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Wednesday recalled the measures taken by leader Kim Il Sung to encourage people to achieve victory during the war.

KCNA highlighted on Wednesday that Kim Il Sung instructed that the soldiers who were university students were withdrawn from the front before the outbreak of war in 1950-1953, in order to send them to centers of higher studies to continue their training.

Kim said at the time that it was not easy to extract so many uniformed men from the front on those days of fierce war and send them to universities, but it was necessary to take that courageous measure for the future of the country.

In January 1951, he ordered to encourage the preparations for the post-war reconstruction of city of Pyongyang.

Days later, he summoned a designer to the Supreme Command headquarters and gave him the task of designing the general project of reconstruction of the capital and completed it himself after examining it.

When the plan was exhibited at a world congress of architects, held in 1952 in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, participants expressed great admiration for the story of its elaboration.

In addition, Kim Il Sung had general free health care system implemented and rest homes for soldiers from the front and even higher factory institutes for the workers.

Such measures taken in the middle of the war encouraged Korean military and civilians to trust in victory.
