Naegok Hot Spring

One day in July Juche 65 (1976), Chairman Kim Jong Il visited the Naegok Hot Spring in Pochon County, Ryanggang Province of the DPRK.

He took the temperature by dipping his hand in the hot water coming out from the ground. Saying that the hot water was very good, he asked whether the ingredients of the water have been analyzed.

An official told him that a specialized organ last year analyzed the ingredients and that the hot water had been proved good for skin diseases, arthritis, chronic gastritis and gynecopathy.

The Chairman said with pleasure that the Naegok Hot Spring can greatly contribute to promoting the people's health. And he stressed the need to develop the Naegok Hot Spring well and make active use of it for the promotion of the working people's health.

Looking up to him who thinks about the people first even at the sight of a stream of hot water, the officials were filled with deep emotion. -0- (Juche113.6.4.)
