PYONGYANG, July 10 (Xinhua) -- The top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Kim Jong Un, called for the construction of a modern county in the mountainous area, according to Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) Tuesday.

During a tour of inspection at Samjiyon County in the DPRK's northern Mount Paektu region, Kim said that the construction of the county should be conducted, divided into the areas of education, dwelling houses, modern streets, industry, sports and cultural education, commercial service and tourism.

"A model of city with modern civilization in the mountains should be made in the construction of Samjiyon County and the appearance of all the counties in the mountains of our country should be spruced up and built well by generalizing the experience," he said.

Kim also asked local officials to "ensure the quality of construction on the highest level by intensifying the guidance and supervision of construction without concentrating on the speed only."
