Pyongyang, September 22 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, visited the construction site of the Mirim Riding Club.

He went round the indoor riders training hall, service center for riders, outdoor spectators' seats, circular riding training ground, riding school, stables, etc. to learn about the progress made in the construction.

He was greatly satisfied to learn that soldier-builders are pushing ahead with the construction of various buildings qualitatively at the final phase as required by the design of the club and methods of construction.

He was pleased to see the soldier-builders pressing ahead with the construction of the horse-breeding institute and the epizootic hospital at a rapid speed as he instructed them while providing field guidance to the construction site in last August.

Watching soldier-builders covering the outer wall of the building with timber, he underscored the importance of successfully applying antiseptic treatment to it so that the quality of timber is preserved and it is prevented from getting rotten.

He learned in detail about the construction of the earth and sand track and lawn track of the club.

Feasting his eyes with satisfaction on the hedge stretching along the earth and sand track, he said it looks nice. It is better to plant acacia along the line inside the track, he added.

After being told that the track has been built with famous Kaesong weathered gneiss mixed with salt in order to increase the capacity for preserving humidity and sterilization efficacy, he underlined the need to take thorough measures for providing the best convenience to the riders.

Watching the turf track, he said that Songchon golden turf of Korea is the best for riding track as it is strong in vitality and resistance to stamping.

He learnt in detail about greening at the riding club.

He mounted the manmade hill to command a bird's-eye view of the riding club. He stressed the need to plant fir trees which offer foliage in all seasons and maple trees along with flower shrubs.

He said it is good to plant willow trees around the artificial pond which will have artificial falls and beach in order to add to the scenic beauty.

He said that it is important to build a walking road for visitors' stroll on horse and cosy pavilions so that they may have good rest.

It is necessary to steadily push ahead with the work for creating greenery after the construction of the riding club is over, he said. He stressed the need to make good preparations to operate the club as it is near completion.

The anniversary of the WPK is near at hand, he said, expressing expectation and belief that the soldier-builders would unconditionally finish the construction of the riding club as scheduled as it is the WPK's gift to the people.
