KCNA: North Korea builds water park in Russia

SEOUL, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- North Korea has taken its expertise in the construction of water parks to neighboring Russia, according to Pyongyang's state-controlled media.

KCNA reported Wednesday that North Korean engineers completed work on an amusement facility, located in the Kamchatka region of Russia's Far East.

"The dedication ceremony was held on Dec. 30," 2016, the state news agency said.

Under Kim Jong Un, the relatively isolated country has built a water park east of Pyongyang, declaring it open to visitors in 2013.

Both the North Korean and Russian flags were raised during the latest event. Russian officials and North Korean diplomats based in Vladivostok were in attendance, according to Pyongyang.

North Korea also said the president of a Kamchatka-based construction company said he "sincerely appreciated the North Korean engineers," while adding "the water park, symbolic of the goodwill between Russia and North Korea, would actively contribute to the promotion of the welfare of the people."

The building dedication comes at a time when North Korea is planning to raise a monument dedicated to the three generations of the ruling Kim family on Mount Paektu, Yonhap reported Wednesday.

The monument's objective is to reinforce the idolization of Kim and his father and biological grandfather, and emphasize their connections to the "sacred" Paektu bloodline, South Korean news service Newsis reported.

According to a statement from North Korea's international preparatory committee for the praise of Paektu's great men, the three Kims are the "symbol" of North Korea and the three Kims are the "sun of mankind."

The North Korean leader has purged more than 300 people since assuming power in order to consolidate his rule in a rapidly changing country.
