President of State Affairs Kim Jong Un inspects major TEL production factory
  Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, inspected a major TEL (transporter erector launcher) production factory bringing about a great upsurge in production every day while remarkably raising the mental strength and patriotic enthusiasm of its employees, true to the idea of the December 2023 Plenary Meeting of the Party Central Committee.
  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un was accompanied by his respected daughter.
  He was also accompanied by Jo Chun Ryong, Jo Yong Won, Ri Il Hwan, Kim Yo Jong and other senior officials of the Party Central Committee and leading officials of the General Missile Bureau.
  Looking at the large TELs and various kinds of TELs produced by the factory, he learned about the production in detail.
  After acquainting himself with the factory's implementation of production plan last year, he highly appreciated the officials and workers of the factory for vigorously striving to attain a new production goal in the new year after overfulfilling the TEL production goal set by the Party Central Committee through a dynamic drive for increased production and creation to glorify 2023 as a year of great changes in bolstering up the national defence capabilities.
  Kim Jong Un said: It is encouraging to see the employees of the factory achieving shining successes in the responsible production campaign for accomplishing the WPK's cause of building a powerful army by turning all out for the campaign with the single mind of patriotism after ideologically accepting the intention of the Party Central Committee that set the production of strategic missile TELs as the top priority for bolstering up the national defence capabilities. The cause of our Party is invincible thanks to the workers in the munitions industry, who are full of patriotic enthusiasm and regard it as their nature to remain unconditionally and absolutely loyal to the Party and the revolution, like the workers of the factory.
  He expressed great satisfaction at the fact that the factory has inspired great enthusiasm for struggle by briskly conducting dynamic mass movements including technological innovation movement and effectively organizing socialist emulations among workshops, work-teams and operators, giving priority to ideological education, and that the employees are keeping their workplaces clean and tidy with warm love for their factory and creating a highly cultured labor and production environment.
  Stressing that the position and role of the factory are very important in implementing the historic task of bolstering the national defence capabilities, being pushed forward with nonstop, given the prevailing grave situation that requires the country to be more firmly prepared for a military showdown with the enemy, he indicated the tasks to be fulfilled by the factory.
  Referring to the importance of producing various TELs for tactical and strategic weapons in ceaselessly bolstering the nuclear war deterrent of the country and the operational demand of our army, he specified the immediate plan for production of varieties of TELs, long-term production plan and task of production capacity expansion.
  Underlining the need for the factory to make signal successes continuously in the production to radically modernize our army, he took an important measure for expanding the production capacity of the factory.
  Saying that the important factor governing the successful production is just the idea and faith of those involved in production, he urged the factory to consistently intensify the ideological education to instill into its employees the fighting spirit displayed by the workers of Kunja-ri in the 1950s and the noble sense of duty that they are standing in the forefront for strengthening the national defence capabilities, thus raise their mental power to the maximum and focus all manpower and potentialities on the dynamic campaign for implementing the munitions industry policy of the Party.
  The officials, workers and technicians of the factory made a firm pledge to remain boundlessly loyal to the sacred mission they assumed before the revolution by going all out again for carrying out the TEL production plan with the spirit and mettle befitting the heroic working class in the munitions industry, cherishing deep in their minds the great trust of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un who has always placed their factory at the center of his mind, valued and prioritized it most and entitled them to stand in the van of the strenuous campaign for building the strongest national defence capabilities.
