Then he visited the Samjiyon Schoolchildren’s Palace.
Watching the portraits of smiling President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il displayed on the frontal wall of the palace, he was pleased that their portraits were displayed with due respect so that the members of the hobby groups of the palace might always watch them who loved children so much all their lives.
He looked round the room for the education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the palace.
Saying that the historic materials showing the noble love of the great leaders for the younger generation and future are the treasures to be handed down to posterity, he called for effectively conducting education through their immortal leadership exploits and training more talented children so as to eternally add shine to the noble intention of the great leaders.
