DPRK state media reported on March 18 (Friday) that Kim Jong Un visited an area in northern Pyongyang and ordered the construction of Ryomyo’ng Street, a residential area near Ku’msusan Memorial Palace of the Sun and Ryo’nghu’ng crossroads in Pyongyang.    Also in attendance were Jo Yong Won (deputy director of the Workers’ Party of Korea [WPK] Organization Guidance Department), Kim Yo Jong (deputy director of the WPK Propaganda and Agitation Department and Jong Un’s sister) and Kim Chang Gwang (deputy director of the WPK Science Education Department) and Lt. General Ma Won Chun (Director of the National Defense Commission Design Department).

Kim Jong Un looked at a map and proposed layout of the new street and issued instructions “for building the street into a monumental edifice strikingly displaying the WPK’s idea of attaching importance to science and talents and the might of socialist Korea.  The essence of its construction is to splendidly build apartment houses for scientists and researchers including educators of Kim Il Sung (Kim Il-so’ng) University, a nursery, kindergarten, laundry, post office and other public buildings and public service amenities.”  He stressed the “need to push forward the construction of Building #3 of the university at the same time” and said that “it is the Party’s intention to turn Ryomyo’ng Street into an energy-saving and green street in the 21st Century… the designing and construction units should set it as a goal to ensure the lighting and heating systems for the houses and public buildings with solar panels, geothermal energy and natural lighting and build rooftop greenhouses to go green.”

Jong Un said that he would “dispatch the soldier-builders, who took part in the construction of Mirae Scientists’ Street, to the construction of Ryomyo’ng Street on the order of the KPA Supreme Commander” and he issued an instruction that “the entire party, state and society should render positive assistance to the construction and the Cabinet, commissions, ministries and national institutions take the lead in this work.  The construction of the street is no merely for formation of a street but serves as a political occasion for clearing showing the spirit of the DPRK standing up and keeping up with the world, despite all sorts of sanctions and pressure by the US imperialists and their followers, the appearance of the country advancing to realize the great ideal of the people and the truth that DPRK is able to be well-off in its own way and nothing is impossible for it to do.”

He noted that the construction “of Ryomyo’ng Street is a fierce battle with the US imperialists and their followers” and he called “for completing the construction within this year to inspire the servicepersons and people with faith in sure victory and optimism and demonstrate the might of the DPRK fighting its way out with conviction in the rosy future and the traditions of ever-victorious Chuch’e Korea that the world has neither understood nor can do.”
