In a move to extend help the typhoon-hit areas recover, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader Kim Jong Un has promised to build at least 25,000 houses over the next five years.
This came during a recent visit of Kim Jong Un to one of the worst-hit areas of the DPRK. He expressed regret over the more than 50-year-old houses in which residents have been living. The visit came after Kim was seen shedding tears at the weekend as he thanked citizens for their sacrifices.
In order to ensure good housing facilities and the betterment of the region, he urged the military to embark on a more ambitious construction plan.
It must be noted that the military has finished 60 per cent of the construction for at least 2,300 houses in the Komdok area in South Hamgyong province, northeast of the capital, Pyongyang while the new houses are now being built.
