Top leader Kim Jong Il of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has lately called for a "great offensive" to boost the country's infrastructure construction.

The general secretary of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) made the appeal when inspecting a power station under construction in the northern city of Huichon, leading daily Rodong Sinmun reported on Thursday.

During the tour, whose exact date was not specified, Kim underscored the need to wage a great offensive by mobilizing the whole party and army and all the people to complete the power station project before the country marks the centennial of the birth of late leader Kim Il Sung in April 2012, said the report.

It is also very important to build more power stations in different parts of the country to meet the rapidly growing demand for electricity, Kim was quoted as saying.

In an earlier tour to a local electrical complex, Kim, who also serves as chairman of the National Defense Commission and supreme commander of the Korean Peoples' Army, praised its workers for modernizing production with cutting-edge technologies, the daily said.

He also highlighted the party's "call for pushing back the frontiers of science and technology on all the fronts and advancing faster to attain higher goals."

He lauded the complex's success in having produced its latest types of electrical goods with their own efforts and technologies, according to the report.

Among his entourage was Kim Jong Un, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the WPK.
