DPRK state media reported on 15 January (Wednesday) that Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) visited the State Academy of Sciences.  Attending the visit were Choe T’ae Bok (Korean Workers’ Party [KWP] Secretary), Han Kwang Bok (Director of the KWP Science Education Department and DPRK Vice Premier), Ri Jae Il (Senior Deputy Director of the KWP Propaganda and Agitation Department), Pak T’ae Song (Deputy Director of the KWP Organization Guidance Department), Hwang Pyong So (Deputy Director of the KWP Organization Guidance Department) and Ma Won Chun (Deputy Director of the KWP Finance and Accounting Department).  Kim Jong Un’s last observed appearance was his inspection of the command element of Korean People’s Army [KPA] Unit #534.

Kim Jong Un visited a Kim Il Sung (Kim Il-so’ng) statue and an autograph slogan monument.  He “called for erecting at the academy statues depicting smiling President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il (Kim Cho’ng-il), who trained a huge army of scientists and technicians and united them around the party as solid as a fortress, so that its scientists and technicians might always work and live, expressing their inmost feelings towards them.”  He also toured the science academy’s revolutionary museum and according to KCNA he “underscored the need for the scientists and technicians to settle issues pending solution for economic development and the improvement of the people’s living standard under a long-term plan and scientific and technological issues arising in realities and go beyond the cutting edge and thus make a shortcut to the building of knowledge-based economy so as to glorify the undying exploits Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il performed for the nation’s development of science and technology to posterity.”
