Then he went to the lecture room of O Jung Hup Political University.
After learning in detail about the education of O Jung Hup Political University, he underscored the necessity to give effective lectures as required by the mentality and characters of soldiers. To this end it is necessary to properly work out an education program, steadily improve the education contents and methods and ceaselessly raise the level of teachers and, at the same time, fully provide material and technical means for education, he said. He showed loving care for the unit.
There is nothing to fear when people remain strong in idea and the army is powerful, he noted, adding that the standoff with the enemy is the confrontation between arms and arms and between the idea and faith of the KPA and those of the enemy. He called for beating back the enemies armed to the teeth with the political and ideological superiority of the soldiers fully equipped with that idea and faith.

He learnt about the combat duty, combat readiness and training of the unit at the military lecture room.
He set forth the tasks facing the unit that would serve as guidelines for rounding off its combat preparations and bolstering up its combat capability.
