Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry released the following statement Friday:
The DPRK's preparations for launching Kwangmyongsong-3, an earth observation satellite, by its own efforts and with its indigenous technology have entered a full-fledged stage of action.
The projected launch of the working satellite is a gift to be presented by the Korean people to the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung while entering the gate to a thriving nation and a work for implementing the behest of leader Kim Jong Il.
It has become a law-governed requirement of the age of latest science and technology and a worldwide trend to launch and use a working satellite urgently needed for the country's economic development.
In order to prove the peaceful nature of a scientific and technological satellite launch in a transparent manner the DPRK invited experienced experts of space development institutions and media persons of the world to observe the course of the launch.
The DPRK's launch of the working satellite is an exercise of an independent and legitimate right pursuant to universally accepted international laws on peaceful use of space including the Space Treaty which reflects the general will of the international community which stands above the UNSC resolution.
If the DPRK is not allowed to launch a satellite because such technology of ballistic missile as that of long-range missile is used, it will be deprived of the right to satellite launch for good. It is intolerable double standards for some countries to assert that the DPRK only is not allowed to launch satellites while they are launching them as commonplace events.
They should not make an excessive reaction to the DPRK's satellite launch for peaceful purposes from their viewpoint of confrontation but fairly and calmly accept it as it is. This will amount to proving in practice their commitment that they have no hostile will toward the DPRK.
The DPRK's satellite launch is an issue quite different from the February 29 DPRK-U.S. agreement. The DPRK had already consistently clarified at the three rounds of the DPRK-U.S. high-level talks that the satellite launch is not included in the long-range missile launch.
The DPRK remains unchanged in its stand to sincerely implement the DPRK-U.S. agreement. We have already invited a delegation of the International Atomic Energy Agency to discuss the procedures to verify the moratorium on uranium enrichment activities and are coming to sincere understanding for implementing the agreement with the U.S. side.
For the U.S. to find fault with the DPRK's satellite launch for peaceful purposes is laying hurdles in the way of implementing the agreement as it is contrary to the September 19 joint statement and the spirit of respect for sovereignty and equality of the DPRK-U.S. agreement based on it.
If there will be any sinister attempt to deprive the DPRK of its independent and legitimate right and put the unreasonable double standards upon it, this will inevitably compel the DPRK to take counter-measures. The DPRK does not wish to see the repetition of vicious cycle of such confrontation and escalated tension.
It is the expectation of the DPRK that its sincere efforts to ensure peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and realize its denuclearization through dialogue and negotiations will get due response from the parties concerned. -0-

                           The Dawn of History
March 23 this year will mark the 95th anniversary of the formation of the Korean National Association by Kim Hyong Jik (1894-1926), an outstanding leader of the Korean anit-Japanese national liberation movement.
Nearly a century has passed since the formation, but the great exploits he performed for the Korean anti-Japanese national liberation movement are still in the memory of the Korean people experiencing bitter experiences as one of a ruined people to the marrow of his bones, he embarked on the road of revolution in his early days with an ambition to win back the lost country. On the basis of the bitter lessons of the past anti-Japanese struggle of the Korean people to regain the national sovereignty, he realized that what was essential was to rouse all the Korea people to a determination to win back the lost country and develop sufficient strength to repel the Japanese invaders and that this could not be done in a day or two, and advance the idea of “Aim High.” The idea of “Aim High” implies a revolutionary outlook on life in which genuine happiness is sought in the struggle for one’s country and nation, and a spirit of national independence that Korea’s independence must be achieved by the efforts of the Korean people themselves and an idea of continuous revolution and unbreakable revolutionary spirit to liberate the country without fail by fight through the generations.
True to this idea of “Aim High”, he conducted patriotic educational activities and, at the same time, travelled around many areas in Korea and Northeast China and even so to Shanghai to recruit comrades stepped up the preparations for forming an underground revolutionary organization for rallying broad sections of the masses of the people in the anti-Japanese struggle. On the basis of these preparations he formed the Korean National Association on March 23, 1917. It was an anti-Japanese underground revolutionary organization which was the largest in scale and most staunch in the standpoint of anti-imperialist independence at that time. Its formation enabled Korea’s anti-Japanese national liberation movement to have a backbone organization for uniting the broad masses to it. In the autumn of 1917 he was arrested and imprisoned by the Japanese police. In prison he came to the conclusion that Korea’s anti-Japanese national liberation movement must assume the character of the proletarian revolution which could satisfy both the class demand of the proletarian masses and the national demand of all the Korean people and, to this end, it was necessary to wage an armed struggle.
After he was released from prison he clarified the strategic policy on the proletarian revolution, the attitude to be maintained in the national liveration movement and the policy of waging revolutionary armed activities and played the vanguard role in implementing them. As Japanese police tenaciously watched and persecuted him, he had to move the base of his activities several times to the northern border areas of Korea and northeast China, but he never ceased to fight. His efforts gave birth to the Association for the Promotion of the Alliance of the National Organizations in August 1925. Its formation enabled the independence movement organizations which waged struggle, split in small groups, to be united under the banner of anti-Japanese imperialism, thus bringing about a fresh upsurge in the anti-Japanese national liberation movement of the Korean people and in-depth development of the switchover to the proletarian revolution.
Although he was ill, he exerted devoted efforts for the development of Korean anti-Japanese national liberation movement with indomitable willpower, in the course of which his illness advanced too far to be cured. On July 5, 1926, he passed away. At his death bed he said to his sons; “I am departing without attaining my aim. But I believe in you. You must not forget that you belong the country and the people. You must win back your country at all costs even if your bones are broken and your bodies are torn apart.”
Although he died young, he left valuable heritage for the revolution-the idea of “Aim High”, being prepared for the three contingencies(death from hunger, death from beating and death from the cold), the idea of gaining comrades, and two pistols. The heritage he left constituted the ideological and spiritual asset of the Korean revolution.
With the idea of “Aim High” as an ideological and spiritual source Kim Il Sung evolved the Juche idea that the masses of the people are the masters and driving force of the revolution and construction. And the two pistols made him to realize the truth that one must oppose armed robbers with arms and author the Songun idea of achieving the independence of Korea and advancing the revolution by force of arms. Pursuant to the idea of gaining comrades. Kim Il Sung regarded gaining comrades as the first procedure in the revolution. His warm love for comrades gave birth to the single-hearted unity of the people around him, unity in ideology, in will and in moral obligation. The idea of being prepared for the three contingencies is now reflected in the ideological and mental traits of the Korean people who are overcoming all sorts of adversities of history in unyielding revolutionary spirit. Drawing strength from the inheritance, he waged an armed struggle against Japanese imperialism for 15 years and finally accomplished the historic cause of national liberation on August 15, 1945, and built a powerful socialist country, a people’s country, which is independent, self-sufficient and self-reliant in national defence.
By inheriting the ideology and cause of the President as the are, Kim Jong Il formulated Songun politics as the basic political mode of socialism and is wisely leading the Korean army and people in the struggle for the prosperity of the country. Under his guidance the Korean people are now striving to open the gates of a thriving socialist country, thus adorning the 100-year history of Kim Il Sung’s Korea.
The exploits of Kim Hyong Jik who pioneered the Korean revolution and brought about dawn of modern Korea will shine forever with prospering socialist Korea.

Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- The Korean Anti-Nuke Peace Committee Wednesday released a white paper to disclose the crimes the U.S. and south Korean authorities perpetrated by turning south Korea into the world's worst hotbed of nuclear proliferation, fraught with the biggest danger of a nuclear war.
The white paper, released in connection with the "Nuclear Security Summit" to be held in south Korea on March 26 and 27, said:
Nukes have been shipped into south Korea since 1950.
From late in the 1950s the U.S. has shipped into south Korea Honest John tactical nuclear missiles, 280mm atomic artillery pieces, "B-61" nuclear bombs, etc. nonstop.
The U.S. shipment and deployment of nuclear weapons in south Korea steadily increased, bringing their number to over 1 000 in the 1970s and at least 1 720 in the 1990s. South Korea tops the world list in the density of their deployment.
The "map on the nuclear shipment and deployment by U.S. forces in south Korea" submitted to the south Korean puppet "National Assembly" on October 9, 2005 says that nukes are stockpiled not only in Chunchon, south Korean Kangwon Province, Osan of Kyonggi Province but also in Seoul, Taejon, Pusan, Taegu, Kwangju and other main cities.
A confidential document of the U.S. forces declassified in December 2010 says that nukes had been deployed in the U.S. military base in Chunchon until April 2005.
There is a nuclear arsenal extending 8km underground called "farm" in the U.S. military base in Kunsan of North Jolla Province and similar "farms" are still under construction one after another.
The U.S. has stockpiled 2.74 millions depleted uranium bombs in its military bases in Suwon and Osan of Kyonggi Province, Chongju of North Chungchong Province and other parts of south Korea. This is 3.5 times the number of depleted uranium bombs used by the U.S. Air Force during the Gulfs War in 1991.
South Korea also serves as a nuclear weapons arsenal for the U.S. forces.
The U.S. has staged various war exercises for invading the north in south Korea since late in the 1950s, massively bringing a lot of nuclear attack means including super-large nuclear carriers, aegis cruisers and nuclear submarines.
The U.S. introduced into south Korea "F-15E" and "F-16" nuclear-capable fighter bombers every year in the form of rotation deployment. In last December and January this year it additionally introduced 24 fighter bombers "F-16CM" and "F-16C" into its base in Kunsan.
The white paper notes that south Korea is the area where nuclear control is most fragile, adding that the U.S. is conniving at south Korean puppet forces' development of nuclear weapons, though it is aware of it.
The U.S. also shuts its eyes to the south Korean puppet forces' extraction of fuel for nuclear weapons.
There were traces of extracting plutonium from nuclear reactors in south Korea in 1998 and 2003, but the U.S. pretended ignorance of the fact and covered it up.
The south Korean puppet forces have systematically stockpiled the spent fuel from the reactors underwater, keeping as many as 5 982 metric tons in December 2002.
This amount is enough to extract 36 metric tons of weapon-grade plutonium and is sufficient to produce at least 3 000 A-bombs similar to the one dropped over Nagasaki of Japan.
The U.S. is zealously backing south Korea not only in producing nuclear fuel but in acquiring the technology of manufacturing nukes.
It let an American company to conclude a contract with south Korea on the introduction of the technology of fast breeder reactor and provide help to it in 1982 while the Combustion Engineering Corporation delivered to it 201 pieces of technical data on designing, mock test and development of A-bombs.
The U.S. is also helping south Korea have access to nuclear delivery means.
It delivered nuclear-capable "Honest John", "Nike Hercules" and "Hawk" missiles to the puppet army in the 1970s. It also signed an "agreement on missiles" with south Korea in 1979, paving the way for developing missiles.
Nuclear experts of south Korea blustered that it is the tenth in the world in the capability to manufacture nuclear weapons: three months are enough to produce one nuclear weapon and the technology of extracting enriched uranium has reached "the world's level".
South Korea is the most dangerous source of a nuclear war, the white paper points out, and goes on:
The Korean Peninsula is the most dangerous region in the world as the U.S. had already designated it as the next target of nuclear strike since it dropped A-bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and its plan remains unchanged.
South Korea serves as an advance base for carrying out the U.S. scenario for the next nuclear war.
The then U.S. President Truman said at a news conference in November 1950 that the use of A-bombs in the Korean war was under earnest examination. The then Commander of the U.S Forces in the Far East MacArthur in December 1950 blackmailed the DPRK with nukes, saying the U.S. was planning to drop 30-50 A-bombs in the areas of the north bordering on China.
The U.S. examined its nuclear attack on the DPRK when its armed spy ship "Pueblo" was captured in January 1968 while illegally intruding into the DPRK's territorial waters and when its spy plane EC-121 was shot down in April 1969.
The U.S. moves to provoke a nuclear war against the DPRK got evermore undisguised through Team Spirit joint military exercises staged by the U.S. with the puppet army of south Korea every year since 1976.
In the DPRK-U.S. Agreed Framework concluded in Geneva in October 1994 the U.S. committed itself to end its nuclear blackmail against the DPRK but it went ahead with drills for nuclear attack in the subsequent period, too.
The danger of the U.S. provocation of a nuclear war against the DPRK has become more potential since the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors came to power.
If such nuclear war-maniacs host what it called "Nuclear Security Summit", it will turn out to be no more than a confab for justifying their moves to launch a nuclear war and hurling the U.S. allies into the another Korean war in contingency, concludes the white paper. -0-

Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- The DPRK is to launch a working satellite, Kwangmyongsong-3, manufactured by itself with indigenous technology to mark the 100th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung.
A spokesman for the Korean Committee for Space Technology said this in a statement Friday.
After successfully launching two experimental satellites, DPRK scientists and technicians have steadily conducted scientific researches to develop and utilize working satellites indispensable for the country's economic development in line with the government's policy for space development and peaceful use.
Through the researches they have made a drastic progress in the field of space science and technology and laid solid material and technological foundations for working satellite launches and operation.
Kwangmyongsong-3, a polar-orbiting earth observation satellite, will be blasted off southward from the Sohae Satellite Launching Station in Cholsan County, North Phyongan Province between April 12 and 16, lifted by carrier rocket Unha-3.
A safe flight orbit has been chosen so that carrier rocket debris to be generated during the flight would not have any impact on neighboring countries.
The DPRK will strictly abide by relevant international regulations and usage concerning the launch of scientific and technological satellites for peaceful purposes and ensure maximum transparency, thereby contributing to promoting international trust and cooperation in the field of space scientific researches and satellite launches.
The upcoming launch will greatly encourage the army and people of the DPRK in the building of a thriving nation and will offer an important occasion of putting the country's technology of space use for peaceful purposes on a higher stage. -0-

Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- Some forces are letting loose a spate of gossip as regards the launch of Kwangmyongsong-3, an earth observation satellite manufactured by the DPRK by its own efforts and with its indigenous technology.
The hostile forces including the U.S., Japan and south Korea let loose outbursts that it will be a "missile launch", "a serious provocative act of threatening the peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia" and "a violation of the UNSC 'resolution'."
This is, in a nutshell, a base move to deny the DPRK's right to use space for peaceful purposes and encroach upon its sovereignty as it is typical of the hostile policy toward it.
The peaceful development and use of space is a universally recognized legitimate right of a sovereign state. The satellite launch for scientific researches into the peaceful development and use of space and economic development can by no means be a monopoly of specified countries.
As a matter of fact, many countries and regions of the world are deepening scientific researches in the use of outer space and putting them into practice at present, the age of latest science and technology.
Growing strong with each passing day is the international trend of energetically pushing forward the manufacture and launch of satellites and joining in it.
The DPRK's satellite launch is a matter pertaining to the sovereignty of the sovereign state.
As the DPRK has already clarified, Kwangmyogsong-3 is a precious result of scientific researches conducted by scientists and technicians of the DPRK in order to develop and utilize working satellites indispensable for the country's economic development, pursuant to the government's policy for the peaceful development and use of space.
When the DPRK launched two experimental satellites, it strictly abided by relevant international regulations and practice.
As regards the projected launch of the working satellite, the DPRK sent necessary information to the relevant international bodies according to international regulations and procedures and expressed the will to invite experts and journalists of other countries to view the launching station.
This being a hard reality, the hostile forces are vying with each other to find fault with the DPRK's projected legitimate satellite launch. This is a move to step up their hostile policy towards the DPRK as it is a sinister and deliberate anti-peace action aimed at provocations.
Moreover, the U.S., Japan and south Korea have neither justification nor face to talk about someone's satellite launch.
It is the U.S. that is hell-bent on espionage against sovereign states with the help of so many spy satellites in the space. Japan is rushing headlong into launching spy satellites and establishing its own system of space espionage, dreaming of a military giant. South Korea was shameful to have failed twice in its attempt to launch a satellite entirely with other's help. South Korea has neither justification nor face to chide someone's satellite launch.
The hostile forces are persistently insisting that the DPRK's satellite launches are "missile threats" and "provocations" because they consider its dignity, might and scientific progress as a thorn in their flesh.
Explicitly speaking, no one can tolerate the double yardstick and double standards in the issue of satellite manufacture and launch.
The hostile forces are sadly mistaken if they think the DPRK will cancel the already projected satellite launch due to some forces' accusations over the above-said matter.
Intolerable are the dastardly acts to use the DPRK's satellite launch for peaceful purposes as a lever for political, military and economic pressure upon it.
No one has the right to take issue with the DPRK's projected satellite launch this or that way. -0
