SEOUL, July 30 (Sputnik) - North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has addressed the first workshop of commanders and political officers of the Korean People's Army (KPA), urging them to be ready for an active and offensive response to enemy provocations, the state news agency KCNA reported on Friday.
Kim called on commanders and officials to focus on completing preparations for "actively and offensively" responding to any military provocation by enemies.
"Saying that at present the hostile forces systematically keep bolstering up their capabilities for making a preemptive attack on the DPRK [North Korea] and increase armaments while intensifying all sorts of frantic and persistent war drills for aggression, he [Kim] noted such [a] situation has hardened the determination and fighting will of the KPA to eradicate the root cause of the evil cycle of escalating tensions", the KCNA reported.
The workshop, held from 24 to 27 July and attended by military commanders and political commissars of all the services, members of the executive committee of the KPA Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, and Defence Ministry officials, was aimed at building a united military, loyal to the party, it was reported.
