DPRK top leader chairs meeting to strengthen party’s rule over military

Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), presided over a meeting on Aug. 2-3 for exemplary commanding officers and servicemen in a mass movement in the army, stressing the ruling party’s leadership over the military, the official news agency KCNA reported Thursday.
The military mass movement, with the title of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment, is a legacy for the DPRK’s revolutionary armed forces and serves as an all-powerful treasured sword for increasing military strength, Kim said in his address at the meeting.
This marked the third meeting of the activists in the Korean People’s Army (KPA) for such a mass movement and also the first since the seventh congress of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea in early May.
In his speech, Kim emphasized efforts to strengthen the army in political, ideological and moral aspects and to round off combat preparations of the army.
