Kim Jong Il Inspects Oguk Co-op Farm
Pyongyang, November 26 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il gave field guidance to the Oguk Co-op Farm in Anak County.

He went round the monument to the on-the-spot instructions given by President Kim Il Sung, the monument to his on-the-spot guidance and the room for the education in the revolutionary history.

After looking round the historic relics and mementoes displayed there with deep emotion, he said that Oguk-ri where once only backwardness and poverty prevailed has turned into a well known granary and a land of bliss good to work and live in thanks to the benevolence of Kim Il Sung, adding that his undying revolutionary exploits would always shine in the history of the country.

He went round different places of the farm to see crops of various species produced by the farm. He acquainted himself in detail with the farming this year.

He appreciated the efforts made by the farmers there, expressing satisfaction over the fact that they effectively did farming, overfulfilling this year's plan for grain production.

Noting that the farm holds an important share in grain production, he set forth important tasks to be fulfilled by the farm.

In order for the farm to increase grain production next year it is necessary to make substantial preparations for farming from now, he said, indicating the orientation and ways to do so one by one.

He showed such profound loving care as personally solving knotty problems facing the farm.

He commanded a bird's-eye-view of Oguk-ri situated in the middle of the Orori Plain.

He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the picturesque Oguk Village has turned into an earthly paradise, a socialist fairyland in the era of the Workers' Party.

The three revolutions, ideological, technical and cultural, have made rapid progress in the countryside and assistance to the rural areas and the state guidance and assistance to the coop farms have been increased, bringing about a new turn in the agricultural production, he said, adding that this is a striking demonstration of the validity and great vitality of the theses on the socialist rural question put forward by Kim Il Sung and the advantageous socialist rural economy system in the country.

The drive for rural construction is a noble and glorious one to turn the nation's countryside into a rich and cultured socialist countryside based on modern technology, he noted, stressing the need to continue channeling great efforts into this work.

He called on the whole country and all the people to continue concentrating all efforts on farming to bring about a radical turn in the agricultural production as the agricultural front is the most important and major front for settling the people's problems of clothing, food and housing.

He was accompanied by Kim Ki Nam, secretary of the WPK Central Committee, and Pak Nam Gi and Jang Song Thaek, department directors of the WPK Central Committee.
