Kim Jong Un Watches Strategic Submarine Underwater Ballistic Missile Test-fire

Pyongyang, May 9 (KCNA) -- There took place an underwater test-fire of Korean-style powerful strategic submarine ballistic missile. The ballistic missile was developed on the personal initiative of Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, and under his meticulous guidance.
Kim Jong Un learned about the tactical and technological specifications of the newly developed ballistic missile and watched its test-fire. As soon as he issued an order to begin the test-fire, a combat alarm was sounded inside the strategic submarine and it submerged up to a depth for firing the ballistic missile.
After a while, the ballistic missile soared into the sky from underwater. The test-fire proved and confirmed that the ballistic missile fired from the submarine fully met the requirements of the latest military science and technology.
He highly praised the officials, scientists and technicians in the field of defence science and a munitions factory for having successfully perfected the technology of firing ballistic missile from the strategic submarine underwater in line with the strategic intention of the Central Committee of the WPK.
He said that the successful test-fire of ballistic missile from Korean-style attack submarine is an eye-opening success as signal as satellite launch. A wonderful gift was presented to the 70th anniversary of the founding of the WPK thanks to the painstaking efforts of the officials, scientists, technicians and workers in the field of defence science and a munitions factory, he noted, extending his thanks to them on behalf of the C.C., the WPK.

He stressed that the acquisition of the technology of firing ballistic missile from a strategic submarine underwater made it possible for the KPA to possess a world-level strategic weapon capable of striking and wiping out in any waters the hostile forces infringing upon the sovereignty and dignity of Songun Korea and conduct any underwater operation.
Kim Jong Un Visits Fish Farm under KPA Unit
Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, visited the Anbyon Fish Farm under KPA Unit 580.
The fish farm was built in September 1999 on the initiative of leader Kim Jong Il and it was visited by him on April 15 (the Day of the Sun), 2001 and in November, 2011.
Going round various parts of the farm, Kim Jong Un learned in detail about its reconstruction and fish production.
Feasting his eyes on the fishponds and production facilities standing in a crisscrossed manner along the spring water stream, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the farm has undergone a complete change to look neat with picturesque environment, turning into a model fish farm and an educational unit of the country.
It is desirable to have a monument depicting the tender-hearted image of Kim Jong Il erected in the compound of the farm, a result of his love for the people, and convey his feats for all ages, he said.
At the farm's combined control room, he watched carefully workers there conduct real-time computer-backed measure and control of temperature, ph value and amount of oxygen in fishponds and monitor the physiological condition of fishes by underwater cameras.
Underlining the need to put the fish farming on a scientific and modern basis in order to keep production going on a high rate, he praised the farm for having established the strict combined management system as intended by the Party.
Seeing a water filter installed in the headstream, he praised scientists and researchers of Kim Chaek University of Technology for having rendered active support to the modernization of the farm including the establishment of its combined management system.
At a hatchery, he said it is admirable that the farm has bred fries necessary for production by its own efforts and supplied them to other units by giving fullest play to its operational capacity. Seeing a gravity-fed fishpond, he said it was built well and there is no free space left in the farm.
He urged the farm to produce in larger quantity tasty and hygienically safe fish with nutritious feed by making the maximum efficient use of existing production capacity.
Calling upon the officials and employees of the farm to play a vanguard role in the development of the country's pisciculture, he said that the Party would provide the farm with necessary vehicles and equipment.

Accompanying him was KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau.
Kim Jong Un Visits Cattle Farm under KPA Unit

Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, visited the July 18 Cattle Farm under KPA Unit 580.
The cattle farm is a large-scale stock-breeding base built thanks to the loving care of leader Kim Jong Il, who had always worked heart and soul to improve the diet of the service persons and civilians.
Seeing an "Anbyon cow" personally named by Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un acquainted himself in detail with its biological characteristics and rearing.
The analysis of domestically-bred "Anbyon cow", in contrast with imported cows, shows that it is a good breed with high economic efficiency in the light of unit feed and weight increment, he noted with pleasure.
It is admirable that the farm bred the cow and established a Korean-style breeding method, he said, urging the farm to set higher goals and intensify the work to breed cows of various good strains.
Then he learned in detail about the management and operation of the farm.
He praised the farm for having done a lot of things by establishing a production cycle of animal husbandry and agriculture and concentrating efforts on pasturage not only to solve the feed problem but also to increase the output of farm products.
He called for turning the farm into an educationally effective model of modernization, scientification and industrialization in stock-breeding and an icon one that shows the development of the country's livestock industry.
Stressing the need to build the structures in the farm including animal sheds and dwelling houses nicely as required by the new century and thus transform the area of the farm into another socialist fairyland, he took a benevolent measure to do so.

He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA.
Kim Jong Un Provides Field Guidance
to February 11 Plant of Ryongsong Machine Complex

Pyongyang, May 7 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the February 11 Plant of the Ryongsong Machine Complex.
He looked round the newly remodeled room dedicated to the education in the revolutionary history.
He said that the history of the development of the plant represents the history of the guidance given by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
He underscored the need for the plant to start full-scale serial production of modern machines as early as possible by waging a dynamic drive for bringing their performance to the world's level and thus glorify the leadership exploits of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
He looked round various places of the plant including the processing and assembling shops to learn in detail about the production.
It is something to be proud of that the plant has updated all production processes including boring and milling machines, turning lathes and vertical heat treatment oven by widely applying advanced technology, thereby raising the performance of the existing equipment and their production efficiency and precision rate of machine parts processing, he noted.
The plant is a model to be followed by the whole country in updating aging equipment and making an effective use of them, he said, calling upon other units to earnestly learn from its experience.
Noting that the plant has made a lot of achievements in the drive to contrive and manufacture latest machines, he repeatedly expressed satisfaction, saying: New type modern machines produced by the plant look very nice. This alone proves that the machine-building industry of the country has made a great leap forward in recent years.
Different sectors are now requiring more modern machines, he said, instructing the plant to meticulously organize the production to unfailingly carry out its national economic plan and, at the same time, work hard to perfectly conclude the work for developing new products at the earliest possible date.
He enjoyed an art performance given by the itinerant art squad of the plant. Its performance represents a dynamic political work, he said, adding that every number of its repertoire correctly reflected the party's policies and it was pervaded with the love for the plant and truthfully depicted the revolutionary and militant character of its workers.
He said that while going round the plant, he could learn well about the loyalty of its workers who trusted and followed the party and the leaders only in good or bad days. He expressed conviction that the party would as always remain strong and emerge victorious thanks to such workers as those of the plant.

He had a photo session with the labor innovators, expressing belief that the workers of the plant would make a positive contribution to developing the nation's machine-building industry.
Kim Jong Un and His Creative Mode

A great transformation is taking place in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, to the wonder and admiration of the international community.
Then what are the attributes that define the political mode its supreme leader Kim Jong Un pursues in leading his people to build a thriving socialist country?
First, he demands that everything they create go beyond the global standards.
To cite an example, he takes an innovative and enterprising approach to architecture. The newly built edifices that retain their characteristic features have reached the highest standards in all aspects, ranging from design and building work to content and style—the Masikryong Ski Resort, Munsu Water Park, apartment blocks for the educationists at Kim Il Sung University and Kim Chaek University of Technology, Wisong Scientists Dwelling District, Yonphung Scientists Holiday Camp, Songdowon International Children’s Camp, and Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage. Excellent in utility and artistic beauty and giving precedence to convenience and aesthetic tastes, these structures epitomize Kim Jong Un’s criteria for civilization and creation.
There is a lot more to say about the innovative thinking of the Korean leader who strives to explore new ideas with a global vision, regardless of the set formulae and stereotyped patterns.
Looking round the gorgeous Yonphung Scientists Holiday Camp, he said that those in the fields of scientific research and design should keep abreast of breakthroughs in contemporary architecture, adding that they should make strenuous efforts to develop recyclable and natural energy resources.
Second, the youngest leader in the world sees to it that every project is completed at a single stretch in the shortest possible period.
Construction of the Masikryong Ski Resort is a good example. He made a resolve to finish the project in one year though the US and its vassal forces were clamouring that the DPRK could not make it even after a decade. All the service personnel and people turned out in hearty response to his call for creating the “Masikryong speed.” On the strength of working together they went against all odds to conquer the primeval forests. On a vast area of land sprang up modern buildings in a matter of one year, and the builders vowed that they could take responsibility for their safety and guarantee their absolute quality for all eternity.
There are other examples; the Songdowon International Children’s Camp was renovated in a little more than five months, the Yonphung Scientists Holiday Camp built in four months, and the Wisong Scientists Dwelling District laid out in seven months. The rapidly changing appearance of the country strikes the world with admiration.
True to their leader’s appeal to beat the world at the speed of Korea, the people are making a quantum leap and effecting innovations in their respective fields.
Third, the Korean leader’s way of thinking is big and audacious. Build structures as monumental edifices—this is a principle he maintains in construction.
He gave instructions on 113 formation plans for the construction of the Munsu Water Park on the bank of the Taedong River, and he had a huge sum invested for the construction projects such as the Songdowon International Children’s Camp, Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage, and apartment blocks for scientists and educationists.
Make everything impeccable for the benefit of the people and no expense should be spared if it is for children, scientists and educationists—this is his “calculating method.”
It is not that his attention is restricted to certain sectors and units; he shows close concern for all the sectors and people of the country.
After the projects for the Songdowon International Children’s Camp and Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage were over, he took specific measures to refurbish other children’s camps and orphan’s primary and secondary schools in different parts of the country. Also concerned about the elderly with no one to support, he had a fishery station set up exclusively to provide them with fish on a daily basis, just as he did for parentless children across the country.
Following the construction of the apartment blocks for the educationists at Kim Il Sung University, he had similar ones for those at Kim Chaek University of Technology built in the shape of sailboats on the bank of the Taedong River. Now the construction of the Mirae Scientists Street is going full steam ahead in the nearby area.
The projects for the Munsu Water Park, Mirim Riding Club and Masikryong Ski Resort, all undertaken consecutively, were completed under his bold plan.  
In February he had a bird’s-eye view of the construction site of the Mirae Scientists Street on board his official plane in order to map out a plan to build Pyongyang into a world-class city.
In other parts of the country the people’s dreams and ideals are coming true according to his innovative plan—the Sepho area being transformed into a big livestock farming base, the multi-tier hydropower stations on the Chongchon River nearing completion and the Kosan Fruit Farm showing off a sea of apple trees.

Having already attained a powerful-nation status politico-ideologically, militarily and in outer space exploration, the Korean people now make redoubled efforts to develop theirs into an economic giant and a sports power. Under Kim Jong Un’s sagacious leadership the DPRK will become a thriving socialist country in the near future.

National Aerospace Development Administration Clarifies Its Principled Stand
Pyongyang, May 8 (KCNA) -- Space development represents an indomitable soul of Juche Korea, ardent desire for prosperity and an expression of inexhaustible strength to outpace the world. The United States and the undesirable hostile forces led by it cursed for their injustice and ill nature are challenging the fair public opinion with their sheer sophism and far-fetched assertions. They claim that the construction of the satellite control centre in the DPRK is "part of the preparations to fire ballistic missiles soon", "provocation disturbing global peace and security" and "an act of escalating confrontation with the international community". They have gone the lengths of letting loose of a litany of rubbish that "the capability to control satellite launching pad precisely means capability to control nuclear delivery means" and the DPRK is set to use it as "a card for negotiations with the U.S." They are steeped in such inveterate repugnance, persecution mania and practice of making profound confusing of right and wrong that they shout hoarse that the above-said center is a facility to command long-range ballistic missile and "a camouflaged facility" for developing missiles and it is subject to new sanctions of the UN. A spokesman for the National Aerospace Development Administration of the DPRK in a statement clarified the following principled stand: 1. No one, be he or she, should any longer misinterpret the entirely just space development of the DPRK and float wild rumors about it. It is an important project being undertaken by scientists, technicians and workers of the DPRK for dignity and self-esteem of the nation to break through the cutting edge in the field of space development. If the U.S. and its allies, the undesirable forces, persistently vociferate about the center, refusing to face up to the reality, this will only sound like a dog's barking and the desperate bid they make, wasting time, will be little short of crazy efforts of rabid dogs. 2. It is the invariable stand of the DPRK to continue launching satellites of Juche Korea for peaceful purposes in the designated place when necessary. It is entirely an independent right of the DPRK to launch precious satellites manufactured by its own efforts and technology. No matter who dares grumble and no matter how all hostile forces challenge the launch, satellites of Juche Korea will soar into the space one after another at the time and place designated and decided by the supreme leadership of the Korean revolution. 3. The high dignity of the DPRK as a satellite manufacturer and launcher will be exalted as the days go by, regardless of whether it is recognized or not. Space development for peaceful purposes is a legitimate right of Songun Korea chosen by its party, army and people. The dignified status of the DPRK as a satellite manufacturer and launcher will never change no matter how desperately the U.S. and other hostile forces may deny. Therefore, the space development for peaceful purposes being pushed forward by the DPRK according to its long-term goal and plan is not the one to be abandoned due to others' opposition. The DPRK re-clarifies that its satellites will more dynamically soar into the space in succession, shattering the reckless moves of all the dishonest hostile forces in the indomitable spirit of the resourceful Korean nation.


Press Statement of the Permanent Mission of the Democratic
People's Republic of Korea to the United Nations
New York, 1 May 2015
The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) to the United Nations issues the following Press Statement with regard to the “International Symposium on Human Rights Violations Including Abductions by North Korea” to be hosted by Japan on 5 May 2015 in New York.
Japan has been deliberately escalating “human rights” campaign against the DPRK proceeding from its own heinous political purpose while taking sides with the US hostile policy against the DPRK.
It engaged in sponsoring and forcibly adopting the anti-DPRK human rights resolutions in the 69th session of the UN General Assembly last year and in the 28th session of UN Human Rights Council this year. It also has been holding various symposiums in an attempt to deceive the people of the world by drawing attention to the so-called “abduction” and “human rights” issues of the DPRK.
As for the “abduction issue”, it has already been completely resolved long time ago with the return of all survivors and families of the Japanese abductees and the presentation of relevant evidence materials regarding those who had died.
Notwithstanding this previous position, we expressed our willingness to solve ultimately all pending issues relating to the victims of abduction as well as those Japanese people who had lived in the DPRK by making a comprehensive and overall investigation, at the DPRK-Japan Stockholm talk in May 2014. We have been carrying out the Agreement in good faith in conformity with the principle of “Action to Action”.
On the contrary, Japanese government has abandoned the Agreement and tries to globalize the “human rights” issue with its own ulterior political purpose.
On the occasion of 70th anniversary of the foundation of the United Nations this year, Japan has embarked on the operation to completely veil its past crimes against humanity including the sexual slavery by Japanese imperial army, which required the Japanese authorities to invent strategy to mislead and deceive the public opinion to convince the world.
The recent remarks made by the Japanese authorities prove the above fact. They deny in vicious manner the expressions of recognition of the Japanese past anti-humanity crime and apology thereof.
Abe who just visited the United States again rubbed salt with the life-long bitter wounds of the victims of sexual slavery by labeling them as victims of “human trafficking.”
Furthermore, they have recently committed unprecedented encroachment on the state sovereignty of the DPRK by forcibly searching the houses of the leading officials of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan who are deputies to the Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK.
Meanwhile, Japan, the defeated and enemy country, is making desperate efforts to become a permanent member state of the UN Security Council.
All the acts perpetrated by the Japanese authorities behind the “human rights” issue of the DPRK in the forefront are based on their vicious aims to erase and bury the Japanese past crimes against humanity at any cost.
Against this backdrop, the Permanent Mission of the DPRK to the United Nations strongly denounces and rejects the so-called “Symposium” to be hosted by Japan.

The more the hostile forces including Japan become desperate in their attempt to smear the dignity of our people and sabotage our system under the disguise of “human rights issues”, the stronger our socialist system will grow and the dignity of our people become more glorious by the Songun policy coupled with the line of promoting simultaneous development.
KCNA Commentary Terms U.S.-led Human Rights Campaign against DPRK Counterproductive
Pyongyang, May 7 (KCNA) -- Recently, the U.S., Japan and the south Korean puppet regime are going busy sponsoring anti-DPRK "human rights" farces such as the "week of freedom in north Korea", hearing and seminar in the U.S. There, the "special envoy for human rights issue in north Korea" of the U.S. Department of State cried out for ratcheting up pressure upon the DPRK over its "human rights issue" and leading the thinking of its citizens to a change through "Free North Korea Radio" and information media. The Japan minister in charge of the "abduction issue", supporting the establishment of a UN "office for human rights in the north", talked rubbish that it is necessary for the UNSC to "continue discussing the human rights issue in north Korea." The south Korean puppet regime has also gone reckless, taking advantage of the U.S.-led human rights racket against the DPRK. This campaign should never be overlooked as it is part of the hostile forces' reckless moves to intensify the attack against the DPRK over its non-existent human rights issue. This campaign is the most vivid manifestation of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK as it is aimed at bringing down its socialist system centered on the popular masses. The socialist system was chosen by them and they deem it dearer than their lives. The U.S. scenario was clearly evidenced by the fact that the secretary general of the "Commission for Human Rights in North Korea" underlined the need for the U.S. government to let the UN and governments of various countries join in dealing with the "human rights issue in north Korea." To seek the total collapse of the socialist system in the DPRK through an "all-out offensive" is the pivot of Washington's hostile policy towards the former.

The U.S. scenario to internationalize the human rights campaign against the DPRK is, in essence, a hideous fascist dictatorial one not to recognize its political mode and social system but to transform them as required by the former only. In the final analysis, it is an act of destroying the foundation of the mechanism for guaranteeing human rights established by the international community. All the charades recently staged in the U.S., the worst human rights abuser, are no more than political cartoons designed to falsify truth and pull the wool over the eyes of the world people with lies and fabrications. Tragedy is that the U.S. and its allies are recklessly behaving, utterly unaware of the consequences to be entailed by the above-said racket. They had better face up to the stark reality that the escalating racket against the DPRK would only harden the Korean people's faith in socialism and their will to firmly defend it. Their escalating pressure upon the DPRK would only compel it to take tougher counteraction to foil it. 
COMMAND OF KPA IN SOUTHWESTERN SECTOR OF FRONT ISSUES EMERGENCY SPECIAL WARNING
Pyongyang, May 8 (KCNA) -- The warmongers of the south Korean puppet military have recently reached the height in their provocative hysteria in the hotspot waters of the West Sea of Korea.
They committed military provocations by infiltrating a total of 17 speedboats of the puppet navy two-three times every day deep into the territorial waters of the DPRK from May 1 to 7. A total of five speedboats of the puppet navy intruded into the territorial waters of the DPRK several times from 06:30 to 13:50 on April 26.
The intrusions were made under the pretext of "intercepting fishing boats" of a third country but its ulterior purpose was to "defend the northern limit line", the illegal line.
Such reckless intrusions are escalating in the hotspot waters in the overall southwest sea including Paekryong, Taechong and Yonphyong Islands.
These naval intrusions timed to coincide with the leaflet scattering operations being conducted openly on the whole front are lashing the service personnel of the Korean People's Army in the southwestern sector of the front into a great fury.
In view of the prevailing situation, the command of the KPA in the southwestern sector of the front made public the following emergency special warning on Friday upon authorization:
1. From this moment, it will make a sighting strike without any prior warning at any warship of the south Korean puppet navy intruding into the extension of demarcation line in the hotspot of the West Sea of Korea.
There is a limit to the patience of the KPA service personnel in the southwestern sector of the front.
The DPRK had already announced several times that self-defensive military strikes would be made at the provocateurs intruding into the territorial waters of the DPRK even 0. 001mm.

The KPA service personnel in the southwestern sector of the front do not make an empty talk. 
2. In case the provocateurs challenge the self-defensive sighting strike of the KPA, it will successively deal strong second, third and more retaliatory strikes at them.
Its successive retaliatory strikes will prove what miserable end the provocateurs would meet.
This warning is based on the resolute decision to mercilessly punish with arms the provocateurs hell-bent on confrontation with compatriots.
In case the utmost patience exercised by the KPA service personnel in the southwestern sector of the front turn into resentment of justice and their repeated warnings lead to prompt actions, the south Korean puppet authorities will be held wholly accountable for the ensuing consequences as they orchestrated and incited the provocations.

ANTI-DPRK "HUMAN RIGHTS SEMINAR"
The US mission at the United Nations sponsored a "seminar on human rights in north Korea" on April 30.
It brought together the "special envoy for the human rights issue in north Korea" of the US Department of State, representatives of the US and south Korea in the UN, the assistant secretary general in charge of human rights of the UN and human scum of all hues on the payroll of the US.
The assistant secretary general vociferated about the "human rights issue" in the DPRK and "defectors from north Korea" made "testimonies."
Great irony was that the US charade aimed at building public opinion on the non-existent "human rights issue" through "those defectors" proved abortive after being criticized and derided by its attendants.
Before its beginning the representative of the DPRK asked the US for a floor as the party concerned, but it turned down his request and persistently tried to lead the "seminar" as intended by it.
When "defectors from north Korea" were making "testimonies," the DPRK side became vocal revealing the sinister political purpose of the US anti-DPRK "human rights" racket and true colours of the "defectors." The US asked the DPRK side to calm down, saying that it would give the floor before the seminar was over. Much upset by this, the US representative at the UN went reckless, calling on the secretariat to disconnect mike and threatening to call police.
Strange things happened in the hall. Some of the "defectors" stood up and made odd shouts. They were not able to properly read English texts of speeches written by the US only to become a laughing stock in the hall. This once again brought to light vulgar efforts of the US to hype and internationalize the "human rights issue" and the true nature of the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket. 
By staging the recent "seminar" the US took one more infamous step in the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket kicked up in the international arena including the UN with the above-said "defectors" involved.
As already reported, the US wooed the UN General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Council into adopting anti-DPRK "human rights resolutions" on the basis of "testimonies" made by "defectors from north Korea" last year and this year.
But when one "defector" who was the main testifier admitted that he made false testimony, the "human rights issue" much touted by the US proved to be a fabrication in the eyes of the international community.
The recent "seminar on human rights" goes to prove that how desperately the US is working to tarnish the dignity and image of the DPRK by citing fictitious "human rights issue" and invent a pretext for interfering in the internal affairs of the DPRK and launching aggression against it.
What should not be overlooked is that the UN is allowing the prestige and honour of the world organization to be defamed, oblivious of its mission and duty and taken in by false testimonies of human scum, under the US command and manipulation though it should enjoy trust by ensuring equal sovereignty and international impartiality.
The UN let its assistant secretary general take part in the political "seminar" against its member nation and make reckless remarks in favor of the US. This eloquently proves that the principle of objectivity and impartiality, which keep the UN alive, is violated and the UN arena has turned into a theatre of rowdyism of political tricksters and confrontation.

All the facts once again warn that the US and the UN will face bitterer disgrace and more vehement international criticism if they go reckless, harbouring criminals and "defectors from north Korea".
VISIT TO NEWLY-BUILT SATELLITE CONTROL CENTRE
Kim Jong Un, First Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, First Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, inspected the newly-built Satellite Control Centre of the National Aerospace Development Administration (NADA).
The construction of the centre as a monumental edifice in the era of the Workers' Party has provided a solid springboard for continued launch of various working satellites essential for the country's sci-tech and economic development and national defence.
Feasting his eyes on the centre with a broad smile on his face, Kim Jong Un said with great pleasure that it is a splendid edifice, fresh and peculiar in style.
He went to the room for the education in the revolutionary history at the centre. Chairman Kim Jong Il is a peerless patriot who ushered in the new history of space development and brought about the greatest event of satellite launch in the Korean nation's history of 5 000 years, he said, adding: We should dynamically conduct a drive of breaking through the cutting edge with intense loyalty and noble sense of moral obligation to further glorify the DPRK as a space power and thus hand down the undying feats of the Chairman to posterity.
Then he went round different parts of the centre to learn in detail about its construction.
He noted that the main room for real-time display of satellite launch, auxiliary display and control room and optical observation room were splendidly built to meet the scientific and technological requirements and the visitor's room is very convenient for watching satellite launch.
E-library, lounge, conference room, offices, dinning room and bedrooms are well built to provide the scientists and technicians with enough conditions for their research and living, he said.
He called for putting all the facilities of the centre on a more scientific and modern basis and preferentially treating the space developers and taking warm care of their work and life in order to fully ensure the manufacture, launch and control of working satellites.
He stressed the need to provide more cutting-edge facilities for the centre, build a base in which satellite test can be done in the same circumstances with outer space and erect something symbolic of the centre.
The site of the centre is not so high above sea level but it is the most dominant in the world as it comprehensively represents the dignity of the Korean nation, he said.
He gave thanks in the name of the KPA Supreme Commander to the servicepersons of KPA Unit 963 for having successfully built the centre.
The DPRK has developed into a full-fledged satellite manufacturer and launcher, he noted, saying: Peaceful space development is an option taken by our Party and people and a legitimate right of Songun Korea.
The status of the DPRK as a satellite producer-launcher remains unchanged though the hostile forces deny it and its space development can never be abandoned, no matter who may oppose, he said.
Satellites of Juche Korea will as ever be launched into outer space at the time and locations set by the Party Central Committee, he added.

He expressed great expectation and belief that the scientists and technicians of the NADA would bring about a fresh turn in space scientific research and satellite launch.
A COUNTRY FOR THE WORKING CLASS
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a country which provides the working class with a full legal and social guarantee of political freedom and rights.
Workers in the DPRK actively take part in the socio-political activities as the masters of the state and society.
Ordinary workers are free to participate in the state administration like elections to power organs. They enjoy the right to elect or to be elected, irrespective of occupation, property status and education. Workers account for 12.7 % of the deputies to the Supreme People’s Assembly (DPRK’s parliament).
One of them is Labour Hero Mun Kang Sun who is a weaver at the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill. She has been working at the mill for about 20 years, and all these years she has over fulfilled yearly plans, sometimes 2 or 3 years’ plan in a year, even after her marriage. Now she is known as a labour innovator all across the country―people love her, respect her.
The DPRK gives priority to the interests of the working class in enacting laws and enforcing policies.
Give importance to the working class, faithfully serve them and always rely on them―this is the firm stand and view of the ruling party and the government of the country.
It always considers the convenience of the workers before anything else when it builds a factory or workshop. Factories and enterprises regard it as an iron rule to take care of their workers’ lives and health before production. The state sets it as an inviolable principle to give top priority to safety and health of the workers; when this principle is breached the state takes emergency measures.
When harmful gas was leaking out of a sintering furnace at a smeltery, it blew up the furnace for the workers without hesitation although nonferrous metals were badly needed for the national economic development. It is commonplace that the workers at graphite mines are smudged with graphite powder on their faces. But in the DPRK this was dealt with seriously and officials concerned made apologies to the workers and adopted emergency measures.
There is no unemployment in the DPRK.
It is because according to its socialist labour law, those who are able to work can choose occupations that suit their aptitude and hope and are provided with jobs by the state. So everybody has stable jobs and enjoys leisure time and holidays at halls of culture, holiday camps and resorts. The state provides honoured disabled soldiers, the weak and welfare recipients with appropriate jobs to promote their health and livelihood.
In the DPRK, not a single worker was fired even in the 1990s when factories stopped running and production decreased due to anti-socialist stifling policy of and economic sanctions by the allied imperialist forces, and natural disasters that hit it for several consecutive years. The state took every possible measure to stabilize the workers’ lives and helped workers and technicians renovate their factories and bring the production back onto the normal track.
In the DPRK, ordinary workers promote their health under the free medical service system.
Once, a worker in a province was seriously injured while working. He was rushed to a local hospital and received first-aid there before he was carried to a big hospital in Pyongyang, where he got recovered in 15 days. For his treatment more than 10 academicians, professors and doctors were engaged, 70 kinds of expensive medicines were used and about 6 litres of blood was transfused. But the patient and his family did not know how much money was spent.
How workers are valued in the country is well explained by the fact that on May Day every year its ruling party and government arrange splendid artistic performances and banquets for the workers. When this day comes around, central and local government officials go out to see workers, congratulate them, encourage labour innvators to greater feats, attend sports meetings and enjoy artistic performances together with them.
Now the workers in the DPRK perform innovations and feats by devoting all their wisdom and talents to repaying the benevolence of the WPK and the state that have held them up as the masters of the country and society.
The DPRK, though a small country, is now demonstrating its dignity as one of the few satellite manufacturers and launchers, and a nuclear power. Recently it has built Rungna People’s Recreation Ground, Mirim Riding Club, Masikryong Ski Resort, Unha Scientists Street, Wisong Scientists Dwelling District and many other splendid monumental edifices across the country, and modernized many factories by introducing CNC technology into them. All this is attributable to their devoted service.

Now, they are filled with pride in and dignity of being the masters of the country and society in the van of creating the speed of Korea to hasten final victory in the struggle to build a thriving socialist nation.

DPRK FM SPOKESMAN ON REVISED “US-JAPAN DEFENSE COOPERATION GUIDELINES”
Diplomatic and military authorities of the United States and Japan held a security meeting on April 27 to revise the “US-Japan defense cooperation guidelines”.
In the new “guidelines” the US set major five sectors for security cooperation with Japan ranging from “peace time” to “contingency”, calling for such strengthened role of the Japan “Self-Defense Forces” (SDF) as ballistic missile interception, logistic support to the US forces worldwide, guarantee of maritime security, search and mine sweeping, non-proliferation of WMDs, inspection of vessels and anti-terrorism operation.
After all the US expanded to the whole world the sphere of SDF’s activities, which had been limited to the vicinity of Japan, and made it possible to get military support from Japan during its military operation in any part of the world.
In this regard, a spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement on April 30 condemning the revised guidelines.
What cannot be overlooked is the fact that the US pulled up the DPRK, contending that the revision was needed to “deter any provocative action” of the latter, the statement said, adding:
The US asserted that the revised “guidelines” are to cope with “threat” from the DPRK. But it is the ulterior objective of the US to lessen its heavy burden of military spending with the strengthened role of SDF, use Japan as a shock brigade for realizing its ambition for world supremacy, encircle and contain its rivals in Eurasia by force of arms and maintain its hegemonic position.
The US has fanned up Japan’s revival of militarism to attain its goal, in disregard of the world concern over the latter’s attempt to embellish and deny the past history.
The strengthened US-Japan military alliance will inevitably harass the stability of Northeast Asia, foment confrontation and friction in the region and spark off disputes and arms race.
No matter how the structure of relations among neighbouring countries may change, the DPRK will invariably hold fast to Songun politics and the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts and bolster up its capabilities for self-defense with the nuclear deterrent as a pivot unless the US gives up its hostile policy aimed to stifle the former.

RECKLESS REMARKS TO COVER UP PAST CRIMES
A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards Japanese Prime Minister Abe's crafty behaviour to cover up Japan's past crimes while insulting the victims of the sexual slavery for the imperial Japanese army on April 29:
Abe on his trip to the US termed sexual slaves "victims of flesh traffic" in a recent lecture and at a press conference he let loose a spate of reckless remarks asserting that sexual slaves were results of flesh traffic.
What Abe uttered was an intolerable insult to the victims.
Explicitly speaking, the sexual slaves for the imperial Japanese army were victims of the sexual slavery systematically enforced by militarist Japan by force, not victims of flesh traffic.
The hideous crimes committed by Japan against humanity during its occupation of Korea and World War II are stark historical facts that can neither be concealed nor be covered up.
Abe and other Japanese right-wing conservative forces are working hard to totally negate their past crimes and evade responsibility for them through such crafty wordplay. This can be done only by hooligans devoid of morality and human conscience and psychopath bereft of elementary normal sense.
Abe's reckless remarks that shielded the hideous crimes against humanity in disregard of the international community strongly urging Japan to make an apology and reparation for its past crimes including the issue of sexual slavery vividly showed the moral vulgarity and impudence of Japan.
Abe reportedly said Japan would donate funds to the UN for the protection of women's rights. This is also a base act of making mockery of mankind as it means bargaining on inviolable human rights with a petty amount of money.
If the Japanese authorities persist in putting under the carpet the past crime-woven history of Japan and repeating it, it will never escape destruction more shameful than its defeat in the past war.
The Abe-led Japanese authorities should drop their anachronistic way of thinking and honestly admit and apologize and make reparation for all the inhuman crimes including the sexual slavery as demanded by the international community.

US MOVES TO PLUG S. KOREA INTO MD SYSTEM UNDER FIRE
A spokesman for the Disarmament and Peace Institute of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released on April 30 a statement denouncing the US for running the whole gamut of intrigues to plug south Korea into the US-led missile defense system by deploying THAAD in south Korea under the pretext of “threat” from the DPRK. The statement said:
The US and south Korean puppet authorities at a recent KIDD meeting confirmed an operation plan for deterring “threat from north’s nukes and missiles” in the light of coordinated operation and agreed to operate the US-south Korea “deterrence strategic committee.”
The US is attempting to deploy THAAD in south Korea for the first time in the wake of its deployment on the mainland and Guam. This is related to the establishment of MD, an important part of the strategy for dominating the Asia-Pacific region.
The ulterior aim sought by the US in the projected deployment of THAAD in south Korea under the pretence of “threat” from the DPRK is to forward-deploy high-performance radar in south Korea in order to rapidly monitor and chase the movements of missiles of the rivals in the Eurasian region.
The US deployment of THAAD in south Korea would result in unilaterally weakening or disabling the deterrent force of strategic forces of neighbouring countries and, consequently, upsetting the existing deterrence balance between the US and surrounding countries. This would spark off mistrust and friction between the surrounding countries and the US and south Korea which allowed its deployment and would entail irretrievable baneful consequences and new danger to the security environment in the region.
The escalating tension in the region would make the south Korean puppet forces having the shackling “alliance” with the US increasingly dependent on it.
In the final analysis, through the deployment of THAAD the US seeks to achieve its military purpose and, at the same time, strain the relations between south Korea and surrounding countries to put Seoul under its tighter control.
The surrounding countries warn that deployment of THAAD in south Korea would go beyond the “red-line” and south Korea would become a target of nuclear attack from other countries. This fully reflects their concern and caution of other countries against THAAD.

The deployment of THAAD in south Korea would further increase the danger of conflict among powers in Northeast Asia. This will compel the DPRK to bolster up its military capability to cope with it as the DPRK will be exposed to its threat.

FIFTH MEETING OF TRAINING OFFICERS OF KPA HELD UNDER GUIDANCE OF KIM JONG UN

 Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) -- The Fifth Meeting of Training Officers of the Korean People's Army took place here on April 24 and 25 under the guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
The meeting analyzed and reviewed the achievements and experience gained in the combat and political training of the KPA in the past and lessons drawn from it and discussed the tasks and ways of bolstering up the combat capabilities of the KPA in every way.
Present at the meeting were KPA commanding officers, training officers and officials of military education institutions and the relevant fields.
Kim Jong Un made an opening address.
Expressing belief that the meeting would satisfactorily carry out its work amid a high degree of political enthusiasm and positive participation of all participants and thus mark a historic occasion in bringing about an epochal turn in the training of the KPA and further increasing the invincible might of the powerful Paektusan revolutionary army, he declared the meeting opened.
KPA Army General Ri Yong Gil, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, made a report at the meeting.
Speeches were made at the meeting.
Ri Yong Gil read out a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK on awarding the title of DPRK labor hero and gold medal (hammer and sickle) and Order of National Flag First Class to commanding officers and training officers who performed feats in bolstering up the combat capabilities of the units in the past.
Kim Jong Un personally awarded the title of the DPRK labor hero and gold medal (hammer and sickle) and Order of National Flag First Class to KPA General Kim Rak Gyom and KPA officers Hwang Yong Un, Ju In Su, Yu Tok Chol, Kim Kyong Su, Kong Yong Gil and Rim Jang Ho.
Kim Jong Un made a speech at the meeting.
The most important and urgent tasks facing the KPA at present is to bring about a radical turn in training and thus round off the combat preparations in line with the strategic intention of the party and prepare all commanding officers and soldiers politically and ideologically and in military technique and physically so that they may successfully carry out any combat duty by themselves, he said.
Noting that the party is determined to bring about a radical turn in training by staking the destiny of the country, people and nation on it, true to the intention of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, he put up at the meeting the slogan "Let Us Bring about a Radical Turn in Training and Thus Make the People's Army the Most Elite Revolutionary Army Winning Every Battle!"
He said that the main link in the chain efforts to bring about a radical turn in training is to conduct drills under the simulated conditions of an actual battle and put them on a scientific and modern basis.
The idea of conducting drills in such a way means a full application and development in depth of the principle and contents of training clarified by leader Kim Jong Il, he said, instructing the KPA to take firm hold on conducting drills under the simulated conditions of an actual battle and putting on a scientific and modern basis as the seed and main link in effecting a drastic turn in training and channel all efforts into the drive for doing so.
The idea and theory of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on military training serve as a great programme for training clarifying the Juche-based principles and contents of military training and the guidelines to be always held fast to in conducting drills.
He underlined the need for the training officers to steadily study and work hard to possess noble spiritual and moral traits, scientific and theoretical and working qualifications as frontline soldiers standing guard over the outpost for bolstering up combat capabilities and to arouse the service personnel to bring about a radical turn in training by setting examples.
He expressed his firm belief that all service personnel would thoroughly embody the spirit of the meeting, well aware of the important mission and duty they have assumed before the era and the revolution.
A message of pledge to Kim Jong Un was adopted at the meeting.
He made a closing address.
Noting that all training officers of the army met and discussed an important issue of bringing about a radical turn in the training of the People's Army, he said he was very satisfied with the fact that the meeting was held at a very proper time and proved successful.
He called on all the participants in the meeting to focus all their efforts on the training as the top priority task, not forgetting even a moment that training precisely means safeguarding the party and the socialist motherland, and play the role of fuses and unquenchable flames in making the whole army undergo more intensive training just as the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu.
Expressing belief that all the participants in the meeting would take the lead in ushering in the heyday of bolstering up the military capabilities by improving the quality of training this year, he declared the meeting closed.
