Top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un recently observed a combined military exercise marking the 80th anniversary of the Korean People's Army (KPA), the official news agency KCNA said Saturday.
The report, without specifying the date of the exercise, said Kim, also the supreme commander of the KPA, guided the military maneuver and expressed satisfaction with the success of the exercise.
Kim also called on all the officers and service personnel to "mercilessly wipe out the enemies with the arms of justice and revenge if they dare provoke."
The exercise involved aircraft, tanks, armored personnel carriers, artillery and infantry from combined unit 655, said the report.
The 80th anniversary of the KPA was celebrated on Wednesday with a national meeting, during which DPRK officials issued a stern warning to South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, saying anyone who provokes or hurts the DPRK's dignity would be undoubtedly defeated.
