The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) Wednesday released a crucial report in connection with the fact that the reckless military provocations of the U.S. and the Park Geun Hye group of traitors of south Korea against the DPRK have gone beyond the tolerance limit.
At the instigation of the U.S. imperialists the south Korean warmongers dared stage an outrageous "precision strike drill" aimed to destroy the office of the supreme headquarters of the DPRK on March 21 with 16 fighter bombers carrying air-to-surface guided missiles involved, the report said, and went on:
This is a thrice-cursed provocation to the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and intolerable hideous confrontation action.
Under authorization, the CPRK clarifies the following actions to cope with the prevailing grave situation:
From this moment all the actions of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK including the regular units of the Korean People's Army (KPA), the Workers-Peasant Red Guards, the Young Red Guards and all people will be oriented to launch a retaliatory battle of justice in order to resolutely eliminate the Park Geun Hye group of traitors on this land and under this sky.
The battle to be fought by the DPRK will be the sacred one for devotedly defending the leader and the one for annihilating the enemy without mercy.
We do not hide the fact that it may start inside the Chongwadae or near it.
We had already declared that all the dens of the enemy in south Korea including the Chongwadae are the primary targets of the ultra-precision strike means of the Strategic Force of the KPA ready to go into action.
The powerful large-caliber multiple rocket launching systems of the invincible KPA artillery units are highly alerted to scorch the Chongwadae bossed by Park Geun Hye in a jiffy. Once their buttons are pushed, it is bound to be reduced to a sea in flames and ashes.
The KPA units behind enemy lines to be deployed in the operational theater of the southern part of Korea are fully ready to start a storm operation, lightning operation to conquer the Chongwadae and other major targets at one blow any time and mercilessly wipe out Park Geun Hye and other south Korean warmongers.
The U.S. imperialists and the Park group should clearly understand the will of all the service personnel and people of the DPRK to annihilate the enemy as they regard their supreme headquarters and dignity dearer than their own lives. There's a limit to our patience.
The U.S. imperialists and the Park group of traitors had better pay heed to the DPRK's warning that it has done everything required after having access to everything necessary. They would be well advised to behave prudently, if they wish to spend their remaining days.
Once it is determined, the DPRK will launch a pre-emptive attack operation of Korean style to wipe out not only the Park Geun Hye group of traitors but all big or small strongholds of aggression the way the world has never known.
What the DPRK warns is not hot air.

It will be clearly proved by the miserable end the U.S. and the Park group will meet while going reckless.


 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, declared the construction of Ryomyong Street and set forth the tasks for it on the spot, though he was very busy with his guidance over the 70-day campaign while decisively frustrating the enemies' anti-DPRK moves in the Paektu attack spirit.
The street is to be built in an area between the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun and Ryonghung Crossroads in Pyongyang.
Seeing the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, the sacred temple of Juche where President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il lie in state, and Ryongnam Hill where the leader made a historic oath "O Korea, I Will Add Glory to Thee", Kim Jong Un named the street to be built "Ryomyong Street" in the meaning that it is a significant place from where the dawn breaks for the Korean revolution.
He examined a layout of the street, a map showing the bird's eye view of it and its model board and gave instructions for building the street into a monumental edifice strikingly demonstrating the Workers' Party of Korea's idea of attaching importance to science and talents and the might of socialist Korea.
The essence of its construction is to splendidly build apartment houses for scientists and researchers including educators of Kim Il Sung University, nursery, kindergarten, laundry, post office and other public buildings and public service amenities, he said, stressing the need to push forward the construction of Building No. 3 of the university at the same time.
It is the Party's intention to build Ryomyong Street into an energy-saving and green street in the 21st century, he said, adding that the designing and construction units should set it as a goal to ensure the lighting and heating systems for the houses and public buildings with solar panels, geothermal energy and natural lighting and build rooftop greenhouses to go green.
Saying that he would dispatch the soldier-builders, who took part in the construction of Mirae Scientists Street, to the construction of Ryomyong Street by the order of the KPA Supreme Commander, he instructed the entire party, state and society to render positive assistance to the construction and the Cabinet, commissions, ministries and national institutions take the lead in this work.
The construction of the street is not merely for formation of a street but provides a political occasion of clearly showing the spirit of the DPRK bravely dashing ahead to surpass the world's level despite all sorts of sanctions and pressure by the U.S. imperialists and their followers, the appearance of the country advancing to realize the noblest ideal of the people and the truth that it is able to be well-off its own way, and nothing is impossible for it to do if it has a will, he said.
Noting that the construction of Ryomyong Street is a fierce battle with the U.S. imperialists and their followers, he called for completing the construction within this year to inspire the servicepersons and people with faith in sure victory and optimism and demonstrate once again the might of the DPRK to hew out its clear way, foreseeing its rosy future, and the traditions of ever-victorious Juche Korea that the world has neither understood nor can do.
He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, Kim Yo Jong and Kim Chang Gwang, vice department directors of the WPK Central Committee.

Amid a fierce election campaign between candidates from the Democrats and Republicans, there is no knowing who will be elected as the next US president. Whoever would be the next president, he or she needs to learn lessons from his or her predecessors. The biggest headache for the successive US presidents was the issue related to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The Korean war (1950-1953) was unleashed by the order of President Truman.
After igniting the war by instigating the south Korean puppet regime to make a sudden armed invasion of the north, the US hurled into it a huge armed force, including one-third of its ground force, one-fifth of its air force, most of its Pacific Fleet, troops of 15 vassal states and even the remnants of the former Japanese army.
It, however, sustained a loss nearly 2.3 times greater than what it had suffered in the four-year Pacific War: over 1 567 120 men including 405 490 US soldiers were killed, wounded or captured and tremendous amounts of war supplies were lost, including 12 220 aircraft. The US lost the war, the first of its kind, in its history.
The US signed an armistice agreement which was as good as an instrument of surrender.
The Republican President Eisenhower, had to wind up the war unleashed by the Democratic President Truman. Fifty-nine minutes after the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed, he appeared before the camera, and said that it was a tragically bitter moment.

 In January 1968 the US armed spy ship Pueblo, which had intruded into the territorial waters of the DPRK, was captured by the Navy of the Korean People’s Army.
The US dispatched legions of its troops including an aircraft carrier to the areas around the Korean peninsula. It seemed it would ignite a war at once. It demanded that the DPRK make an apology and send the Pueblo back, threatening to use every possible means including nuclear weapons if the latter rejected its demand. The DPRK answered, “Retaliation against ‘retaliation’ and an all-out war against ‘all-out war,’” and made its combat preparations perfect.
Disheartened by the resolute countermeasures, the US solemnly acknowledged before the whole world the hostile acts of espionage committed by the Pueblo against the DPRK, and signed a document, in which it assured that no US ships would intrude into the DPRK’s territorial waters in the future.
The then Democratic President Lyndon Johnson lamented that it was the first-ever letter of apology in the US history.

In the 1990s the US picked a quarrel with the DPRK over the latter’s “nuclear issue.” Fussing about the “suspicious nuclear development” by the DPRK, it instigated the IAEA to adopt a resolution on forced inspection of military sites in the country, and staged the Team Spirit joint military exercise, the largest of its kind, to bring military pressure upon it.
In this situation, an order of the Supreme Commander of the KPA to declare a semi-war state and a statement of the DPRK government on withdrawing from the NPT were made public.
Unable to find countermeasures against the unexpected reaction, the US came to the negotiating table. And the DPRK-USA Agreed Framework, in which the US made official assurances concerning the non-use of nuclear weapons and both sides agreed to solve the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula in a peaceful way, was signed in October 1994. The Democratic President Bill Clinton sent Chairman Kim Jong Il (1942-2011) of the DPRK National Defence Commission a letter of assurance, in which he assured the DPRK leader that he would ensure the sincere implementation of the US commitments under the Agreed Framework.

Entering the new century, the Bush administration branded the DPRK as part of the “Axis of Evil” and, by mobilizing huge nuclear forces deployed in south Korea and its surrounding areas, continuously staged war rehearsals of various kinds. In this way, it resorted to nuclear threat and blackmail against the DPRK.
It nullified the DPRK-USA Joint Statement and the DPRK-USA Agreed Framework, and disclosed its intention to launch a nuclear preemptive strike against the non-nuclear DPRK in violation of the fundamental principles of the NPT. Thus, the process of the settlement of the nuclear issue and the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula fell into stagnation.
As the nuclear threat by the US went to extremes, the DPRK was compelled to build its war deterrent, and put its determination to action: it officially declared that it possessed nuclear weapons, and conducted an underground nuclear test.
The Republican President Bush produced another nuclear state in this world.
Obama Who Placed the DPRK in the Front Rank of Nuclear-Armed Nations
President Obama advocated a nuclear-free world from his early days of presidency, and for this won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Contrary to his fame, he avoided, to the best of his abilities, resolving the nuclear issue and establishing a peace mechanism in the Korean peninsula, the most urgent in the world, clamouring about “strategic patience.”
The DPRK formally notified the US that if the latter assured that it would ease tension by replacing the Korean Armistice Agreement with a peace pact and would not stage aggressive nuclear war rehearsals, the DPRK would suspend nuclear test temporarily. But the US response was continuous aggressive war rehearsals against the DPRK.
Convinced that the US hostile policy had been unchanged, the DPRK took a resolute measure aimed at building up its nuclear deterrent for self-defence—the successful test of the first H-bomb on January 6 this year.
All in all, the Democratic President Obama, who advocated a nuclear-free world, placed the DPRK in the front rank of nuclear-armed nations.
The presidential candidates, whether they are Democratic or Republican, are well advised to bear in mind the lessons of their predecessors that the US policy of hostility towards the DPRK is doomed to failure.

Kim Jong Un Guides Ballistic Rocket's Reentry Environmental Simulation
Scientists and technicians in the defence industry of the DPRK succeeded in the development and local production of heat-resisting materials for rocket with their own efforts and technology after having made painstaking researches of years under the direct guidance of supreme leader Kim Jong Un.
Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave an order to conduct a test for estimating the heat stability of ballistic rocket warhead tip, designed and manufactured with indigenous efforts and technology, and the corrosion of heat-resistant coating material. And he guided an environmental simulation for reentry of the rocket warhead tip on the spot.
The simulation was conducted in such a way as to verify the thermodynamic structural stability of newly-developed heat-resisting materials through measurement of corrosion and temperature on the tip under high pressure and thermal flow caused by aerodynamic heating when a ballistic rocket reenters the atmosphere. The test results met the requirements of all the technical parameters.
The test proved that the tip's thermodynamic structural stability is ensured under the pressure equivalent to actual environmental condition and heat flow about five times stronger than the condition caused at the time of ballistic rocket reentry and, after all, it provided a sure guarantee for the reliability of the inter-continental ballistic rocket warhead reentry.
Very satisfied over the test results, Kim Jong Un said with high appreciation that the trustworthy scientists and technicians in the defense research field and workers in the munitions industry field true to the WPK's revolutionary line of simultaneously developing the two fronts have made long strides in the rocket industry and nuclear technology this year when the Seventh Congress of the WPK is to be held.
We have proudly acquired the reentry technology, possessed by a few countries styling themselves military powers, by dint of self-reliance and self-development, thus making great progress in the ballistic rocket technology that helps increase the independence of the country's defence capability and munitions industry and remarkably enhance the invincible might of the powerful revolutionary Paektusan army, he added.
The level of our advanced strike means, irrefutable in terms of science and technology, just shows the strength and dignity of our country, he said, stressing the need for the munitions industry to rapidly develop the defence science and technology and raise higher the level of putting the defence industry on a Juche-based, modern and scientific basis and thus develop and produce on the highest level more diverse and Korean-style military strike means and Juche-based rockets for realizing the Party Central Committee's idea on the military strategy and tactics.
Declaring that a nuclear warhead explosion test and a test-fire of several types of ballistic rockets capable of carrying nuclear warheads will be conducted in a short time to further increase the reliability of nuclear attack capability, he instructed the relevant field to make thorough prearrangement for them.
He was accompanied by First Vice Department Director Ri Pyong Chol and Vice Department Director Kim Jong Sik of the WPK Central Committee and General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the KPA Strategic Force.

Mr. Jon Min Dok, Director, Institute for Disarmament and Peace, DPRK March 14, 2016
A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since the end of Cold War. The world has made a tremendous advance and the times have undergone dramatic changes. But, one place still remains unchanged and that is exactly the Korean peninsula.
Needless to say about removal of the structure of Cold War, the Korean peninsula finds itself caught in the state of armistice and both belligerents level their guns at each other for more than half a century.
Today, the Korean peninsula has already ranked the biggest and the most highly explosive powder magazine in the world and a fuse of a new world war. 1. Joint military war drills; Main
                1. Joint military war drills; Main cause of tension in the Korean peninsula The Democratic          People’s Republic of Korea is a peace-loving nation.
The DPRK, unlike the US, has neither invaded other nations with armed forces nor conducted any large-scale bilateral or multilateral joint military drills abroad against a third country.
 However in the last 70 years since its occupation of south Korea, the US has staged annually all kinds of aggressive war drills in the south and its vicinity against the DPRK, several thousand miles away from the US, thus driving the situation in the Korean peninsula and the region to the brink of war.
The US-south Korea joint military drills hinder the inter-Korean relations and national reunification
It is well known that the US is the very culprit which occupied south Korea under the guise of “liberator” following Japan’s defeat in World War II thus dividing the homogeneous nation of Korea and its soil into the north and the south.
From the early days of its illegal and unlawful occupation of south Korea by force and turning south Korea into its full colony until now, the US has been desperate and impudent in portraying itself as a “defender” of the world peace and security while slandering the DPRK as a “criminal” destroying peace and security in order to mislead the world option.
In the last 70 years, the US has been clinging to ceaseless military build-up, new war provocations and drills against the DPRK with the strategy of maintaining tension on the Korean peninsula to isolate and stifle the DPRK and to interrupt the improvement of inter-Korean relations.
Let us look back upon the facts how the US has persistently undermined peace and security and aggravated tension on the Korean peninsula with joint military exercises.
In 1945 when Korea was liberated from the Japanese colonial rule the US occupied south Korea and turned south Korea into its complete colony and instigated the Syngman Rhee puppet clique to stage war drills and military provocations against the north along the 38th parallel and in the end sparked the Korean War in 1950 with an ambition to halt the nation-wide struggle of the Korean people aspirant after a unified state and to put the north under its domination.
Pursuant to the provisions of the Armistice Agreement the political conference for peaceful settlement of the Korean peninsula was held in Geneva. However, the US broke off the conference by conducting Focus Lens, a joint military exercises with south Korea, in 1954 and later in the 1960’s continued to aggravate the situation with Focus Retina and Eagle joint military exercises.
In the early 1970’s, the July 4th North-South Joint Statement for reunifying Korea based on the three principles of independence, peace and great national unity was made public thanks to the active and generous initiatives of the DPRK. At the same time, tendency toward the independent peaceful reunification was growing highly in the peninsula. The US got nervous and awful about the developments in the peninsula and put pressure on Park Chung Hui, the then dictator in south Korea, to overturn the Joint Statement and started Team Spirit and Ulji Focus Lens joint military [3] exercises in 1976, thus driving the inter-Korean relations to a new confrontation.
When the Korean people’s expectation and aspiration for national reunification grew fervent by the announcement of Agreement on Reconciliation, Non-Aggression, and Exchanges and Cooperation between the North and the South in 1992, the US restarted Team Spirit joint military exercises again in 1993 to turn the situation to another catastrophe.
Entering the 2000’s, June 15 era was opened up between the north and the south and aspiration after reunification and anti-US sentiment grew higher and even call for transfer of wartime operational control (OPCON) of the south Korean army was made in south Korea. To check these developments, the US again resorted to joint military exercises.
Last year, the US overlooked and encouraged tacitly the south Korean army’s provocative incidents of “landmine explosion” and “shell fired by the north", which occurred during the Ulji Freedom Guardian military exercises, thus driving the situation of the peninsula to the brink of war again.
                 The nature of the joint military exercises:
Aggressive nature The joint military exercises annually staged by the US and south Korea on the Korean peninsula are quite different from military exercises of other countries in view of both frequency and purpose.
The US-led RIMPAC naval joint military exercises, the world biggest one in the scale, is held every 2 years. In RIMPAC 2014, 23 countries, 47 vessels, 6 submarines and 200 aircrafts were involved, but the total number of troops was only 25,000.
In case of Cobra Gold, the biggest annual joint military exercises in Asia, less than 10,000 troops from 28 countries are participating in the drill and the duration is around 10 days.
The NATO-led Swift Response 15, the biggest one in Europe after Cold War, also involves only 5,000 troops from around 10 countries.
However, the US and south Korea hold annually more than 40 joint military exercises such as Key Resolve, Foal Eagle, Ulji Freedom Guardian by mobilizing more than 500,000 US and south Korean troops and all means of war including nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, strategic bombers, nuclear-powered submarines and etc.
OPLAN 5027 which has been applied to the joint military exercises including Key Resolve and Foal Eagle is an operational plan for an all-out war that would involve 690,000 US troops, [4] 160 vessels and 2,500 aircrafts in case of emergency in the Korean peninsula. The plan is offensive rather than defensive and is aimed at occupying the DPRK by pre-emptive strike.
The aggressive nature of the US-south Korea joint military exercises is also apparent in setting their targets like examination of feasibility of operations like “removal of the leadership”, “occupying Pyongyang”, “regime change”, “preemptive nuclear strike”, “decapitation raids” which can never be found in other countries’ joint military drills.
It cannot be overlooked that the US is inviting military forces of the countries which took part in the Korean War like Britain, France, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Denmark and Japan in the joint military exercises.

                2. The nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula: It was caused by the US-south Korea nuclear             war provocations
The nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula was originated from the ceaseless and increasing nuclear war provocations by the US and south Korea.
Anyone who is not well aware of the reason, the background of the DPRK’s possession of nuclear weapons and the whole process of denuclearization of the Korean peninsula should clearly look at the reality and have a correct understanding.
The criminal history of the US: Continued US nuclear threats against the Korean people
The Korean people have been exposed to the US nuclear threat since 1950.
It has already been revealed that the US first introduced its nuclear weapon to south Korea in mid-August 1950, just after the outbreak of the Korean War.
On November 30, 1950, the then US President Truman threatened openly to use atomic bombs in the Korean War front and instructed the US Strategic Air Force to be on standby to dispatch the strategic bombers at any moment to the Far East to drop atomic bombs.
The US nuclear threat forced bitter separation among tens of thousands of families and relatives of the Korean people in the north and the south.
The US nuclear threat against the DPRK further increased after the Korean War. In July 1957 the US declared the start of arming the US troops in south Korea with nuclear weapons.
On January 29, 1958 the US made public that it had introduced nuclear weapons in south Korea.
 By the mid-1980’s, the US brought in more than 1,720 nuclear weapons including “Honest John” tactical nuclear missile, 280mm-calibre atomic gun, “B-61” nuclear bomb, nuclear landmine and turned south Korea into the biggest nuclear warehouse and an outpost in the Far East to invade the DPRK.
All of the US three nuclear striking means have been mobilized without exception in all its notorious joint war drills including Team Spirit, RSOI (Reception Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration), Ulji Focus Lens, Key Resolve, Foal Eagle and Ulji Freedom Guardian.
The special danger to be noted is that the US adopted the preemptive nuclear strike against the DPRK as its policy, long before the DPRK’s possession of nuclear weapons.
On January 30, 2002, the Bush administration in its Union Address designated the DPRK as the “axis of evil” and in March 2002 announced its Nuclear Posture Review on which the DPRK was listed as the target of preemptive nuclear strike.
In the US-south Korea Security Consultative Meeting in 2009, the US raised the level of nuclear umbrella in favor of south Korea.
 In other words, south Korea which had been in the level of “limited state of declaration” was upgraded to the level of more detailed "tailored deterrence strategy", known as a strategy for a pre-emptive attack just as the same case when the US territory is attacked, thus paving a way to bring in more nuclear weapons at any time to south Korea.
In its Quadrennial Defense Review Report in early March 2014, the US Defense Department defined the DPRK as the direct threat to the US and bellicose country and claimed that would win decisive victory through armed forces.
In his memoirs, Leon Panetta, the former US Defense Secretary, revealed the fact that during his trip to Seoul in October 2011 he had conveyed the message from the US administration that it would use nuclear weapons if necessary.
At the end of 1991, though the US announced the withdrawal of its nuclear weapons from south Korea, it is nothing but a deceptive move.
The US still stick to its NCND policy and continue to deceive and mock the Korean people and the world peace-loving people demanding for its verification of withdrawal of nuclear weapons.
                The Key Resolve, Foal Eagle 16: The unprecedented and the largest pre-emptive nuclear            offensive in history
The first exercises in which the US and south Korea introduced the "tailored deterrence strategy" and tested its effectiveness is the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises in 2014.
The Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 which the US and south Korea started on March 7, this year is the unprecedented and the largest scale joint war drills surpassing all the previous drills and will last for nearly 2 months.
Mobilized in the exercises are huge armed forces including 17,000 American soldiers, 300,000 south Korean soldiers and some follower states armies, and nuclear war means and equipment, two times larger in its size compared to the previous drills, including John C. Stennis, nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, one of the typical strategic assets carrying 100 aircrafts and even AWACS, North Carolina, a nuclear-powered submarine, B-52 and B-2 strategic bombers, F-22 Raptor stealth bombers, F-15K and KF-16 etc.
The US and south Korea even threw off the deceptive mask of "annual and defensive” nature of the drills and are staging the exercises by the way of fighting an actual war, practicing the “Decapitation Raids Operation" aimed at removal of the DPRK leadership and bringing down its social system pursuant to the extremely adventurous OPLAN 5015. OPLAN 5015, applied for the first time this year, is integrating both OPLAN 5027 and OPLAN 5029.
It is aimed at a pre-emptive strike against the DPRK’s nuclear and missile bases within 30 minutes after detecting the signs of missile launch.
Therefore, it is more dangerous and aggressive than the previous operational plans. It is quite reasonable that foreign media like Global Times of China and Pravda of Russia commented that the toothed wheels of war have already begun to move on the Korean peninsula.
                3. Suspension of the joint war drills: Touchstone for judging stand for peace
Peace and security on the Korean peninsula is of great importance to the Korean nation since it is directly related to the existence of the Korean nation and its reunification.
Therefore, the DPRK has advanced broad and a rational proposal aimed at removal of the danger of war, easing tension and providing a peaceful environment on the Korean peninsula and has made sincere efforts to their realization.
                Proposal for suspension of joint military exercises by the US and moratorium on nuclear            test by the DPRK
The suspension of joint military exercises is the precondition for safeguarding the peace on the Korean peninsula. It is a long time since the Military Armistice Commission and the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission controlling and supervising the Armistice Agreement of the Korean War disappeared on the Korean peninsula.
The Korean People’s Army has already declared that the Armistice Agreement had been completely abolished by the US. It is inevitable that the cease-fire out of control will surely switch to a hot war at any moment.
Emergency created in August last year clearly showed that even a trifling, incidental conflict between the north and the south may create a touch-and-go war situation and the current armistice devoid of power can no longer prevent a conflict and the danger of war.
The DPRK has no intention at all to interfere in the US war games if they are really defensive and pose no threat to the DPRK and are conducted on the US territory or in the middle of Pacific Ocean. However, the DPRK cannot remain a passive onlooker at the fact that the US, the biggest nuclear weapon state in the world and the belligerent that is still at war with the DPRK, is conducting an aggressive and large-scale war exercises at the threshold of the DPRK by mobilizing all kinds of state-of-the-art strategic assets.
If the US has no intention to invade or attack the DPRK, there is no need to stage the military war drills for such a long period with huge armed forces and pre-emptive striking means, more than enough to fight a full-scale war.
Therefore, in January 2015, the DPRK advanced a proposal for the US suspension of joint military exercises in south Korea and its vicinity and the DPRK’s moratorium on the nuclear test and reiterated that proposal again in January this year.
As a lot of people commented, had the Obama administration recognized the failure of its policy of “strategic patience” earlier and paid a little attention to the DPRK’s continued demand for the suspension of military exercises, they would not have been so astounded by the DPRK’s successful H-bomb test in last January.
Last January in his article on US newspaper Huffington Post Mr. William Perry, the former US Secretary of Defense, criticized the Obama administration for its excessive engagement in the Middle East and other regions and neglect of the situation on the Korean peninsula and stressed that it is high time for the US to end the 60-year-long DPRK-US confrontation deeply rooted in the Korean War and take a concentrated, sustained and rational action to address the issue of the Korean peninsula.
Many experts from the US and other countries and even the western media like The Guardian (UK), The New York Times also stated that the Obama administration’s policy for strategic patience made worse the pus of the Korean peninsula issue and called for an end of the longstanding Korean War by conclusion of the peace agreement.
If the US is sincerely interested in the dialogue with the DPRK and the peace of the Korean peninsula, it should show its readiness to suspend joint military exercises.
                The DPRK’s nuclear deterrent: Shield of justice and peace
The DPRK possessed nuclear deterrent legitimately to safeguard the sovereignty of the country and the right to existence of the nation from the ever-increasing US nuclear threat against the DPRK. Originally the DPRK’s possession of nuclear weapons was not at all its intention.
The DPRK’s possession of nuclear weapons was totally an inevitable choice of self-defense to counter the increased hostile policy and nuclear threat of the US, the world’s biggest nuclear weapons state and the only user of nuclear weapons, which designated the dignified DPRK as the “axis of evil” and as the target of pre-emptive nuclear strike with huge nuclear war equipment.
 It is a ridiculous sophistry and nobody will be convinced that the DPRK’s self-defensive nuclear weapons pose threat to others while the nuclear weapons of the US, the biggest nuclear weapon state and the only nuclear criminal, pose no threat to other states.
The DPRK considers that keeping the balance of force by bolstering the nuclear forces is the only way to effectively deter the US persistent nuclear threat and war provocations and to defend the sovereignty and the right to existence of the nation.
If the DPRK had not responded in a super high-handed way with nuclear deterrent to the US nuclear war rackets, the Korean peninsula would have already fallen into the sea of fire a long time ago and security in Northeast Asia and the world would have been jeopardized.
The Korean People’s Army has already converted its mode of military counteraction into a pre-emptive offensive one in every aspect to cope with the US extremely dangerous nuclear threat. In case of outbreak of a war on the Korean peninsula, it will neither be confined to the peninsula nor to a conventional war.
Worse still, there is no guarantee that the DPRK-US life-and-death confrontation would not be expanded to the world thermonuclear war. Anyone who is desirous of peace and security of the world should clearly identify who loves peace and who pursues war in the Korean peninsula. The DPRK’s because advancing under the banner of Songun is just and its victory is definite.

As long as the US persists in its moves to stifle the DPRK’s socialist system, the DPRK will continue to adhere to the Songun politics and the line of promoting the two fronts simultaneously and firmly defend the sovereignty of the nation and the peace of the world, no matter how the structure of relations with the surrounding countries may change.

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, watched the KPA tank crews' competition-2016.
He was greeted by Hwang Pyong So, Pak Yong Sik, Ri Myong Su and other commanding officers of the KPA and commanders of the services and corps commanders.
Tanks started by the order set by lot. Tank crews selected from the KPA corps competed in overcoming obstacles along nine lines before firing at moving and fixed targets. The standing was decided by points gained in both events.
He ordered the start of the competition after hearing about the plan of the competition at the observation post.
Watching with satisfaction rumbling tanks, he said it was great to see the tanks quickly overcoming the obstacles. He said he was pleased to witness the sky-high spirit of the KPA, noting that tank represents the spirit.
He was satisfied with the atmosphere of the competition as "enemy" targets were blown up to pieces and resounding frontline-style information and agitation instilled courage into the tank crews, turning the drill ground into a battle field.
The 108th Motorized Infantry Division of the KPA came first to be followed by the 3rd Corps and the 105th Tank Division.
At the end of the competition, he advanced important tasks which would serve as guidelines for the KPA to make thorough combat preparations.
He called for organizing more often such a competition very favorable for revving up the militant spirit of the tank crews and their zeal for training and bolstering up the capability in the future, too.
In case a war breaks out, tanks should advance, sweeping away everything in their way, and destroy the enemy positions, he noted, adding that in order to do so, it is necessary to learn from the fighting mettle and spirit of the hero crews of Tank No. 312 under the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su Guards 105th Tank Division of the KPA which hoisted the flag of the DPRK on the top of the puppet Capitol Building after advancing into Seoul before any other tanks during the past Fatherland Liberation War.
He gave important instructions to be implemented to round off the preparations of the tank crew for a war.
We will be the first to get the golden opportunity to reunify the country, he said, noting: If the enemies dare preempt an attack on our inviolable land, we should mercilessly wipe them out.
He expressed expectation and belief that the tank crews would defend the Seventh Congress of the WPK and successfully adorn this significant year by bolstering the combat capability and rounding off the combat readiness.

Watching the competition were tank commanding officers and teachers of the military academies at all levels.


A mobile drill for ballistic rocket launch aimed at examining the capability to fight an actual war of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) equipped with powerful nuclear deterrent means was conducted by a combat order of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
He watched the ballistic rocket launch drill of the Strategic Force of the KPA.
At the launching drill ground, he listened to the determination of General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force, to make firepower strike and ratified it.
By the order of the commander of the Strategic Force to open fire, its powerful ballistic rockets were launched to break the silence at night. The drill was conducted under the simulated conditions of exploding nuclear warheads from the preset altitude above targets in the ports under the enemy control where foreign aggressor forces are involved.
Expressing great satisfaction over the successful firepower strike drill of the strategic force in which high maneuverability was ensured and a correct launching method was applied to different enemy targets as required by a modern war, he extended a militant salute to the service personnel of the KPA Strategic Force in the name of the supreme commander.
He set forth the important tasks to be fulfilled to further round off the nuclear weapons operation system and properly wage a Juche-oriented ballistic rocket battle.
He underscored the need to put greater spurs to developing nuclear weapons, a new goal set by the party, and dynamically push forward the diversification of means for delivering nuclear warheads so as to get ready to make nuclear strikes at the enemies from anywhere on the ground, in the air, at sea and underwater.
Underlining the need to steadily improve the nuclear strike capability by boosting the cooperation between the nuclear weapons research field and rocket research field in the future, he gave militant tasks to conduct more nuclear explosion tests to estimate the destructive power of the newly produced nuclear warheads and other tests to bolster up the nuclear attack capability.
He stressed the need to ensure a prompt and safe operation of nuclear attack system in the state of the nation's utmost emergency and more thoroughly establish a unitary system of command and control over the strategic nuclear force.
As the war-thirsty Park Geun Hye group is now set to launch the most undisguised nuclear war against the DPRK while staging the largest-ever Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 joint military exercises after introducing huge aggressor forces including the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and their satellite troops and even lots of U.S. nuclear strategic means into south Korea despite our crucial warning, our self-defensive countermeasures should adopt a more preemptive and offensive mode, he said.
He declared that the DPRK would make the enemies regret for their misjudgment made in a wrong time and reckless action taken without any measure and take a series of Korean-style powerful countermeasures in succession to this end.
If the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet group kick off another reckless military action and stage a clumsy farce against the dignified DPRK, prompted by an extreme wild ambition for invading it, the puppet reactionary regime in south Korea will fall, hit so hard physically that it would never appear again, he noted, adding that as a strong warning had been served already, it is the only way for the Park Geun Hye regime to exercise prudence and self-control so as to escape a miserable end until the last day of its office. He went on:
We remain unperturbed in face of the enemies' any dangerous saber-rattling under our eyes, but if they destroy even a single tree or a blade of grass in our inviolable territory, I will issue a prompt order to launch attack with all military strike means including nuclear weapons and strike the Park regime and hordes of the puppet military with deadly baptism of fire so that they may not exist any longer.
He called on the service personnel of the KPA Strategic Force to clearly show the reckless warmongers what the Juche-oriented military counteraction is like.
He issued an order to all the nuclear strike means of the Strategic Force targeting major strike objects in the operation theatres of south Korea and the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces bases in the Asia-Pacific region to be always ready for action and fully prepared to fight a decisive battle till the U.S. imperialists and the Park Geun Hye group of traitors are worn out and dispirited with war hysteria against the north.

Watching the launch drill were Hwang Pyong So, Ri Pyong Chol, Hong Sung Mu, Kim Jong Sik, Yun Tong Hyon, officials of the Munitions Industry Department of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and scientists and technicians in the field of researches into nuclear weapons.


The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea launched an earth observation satellite Kwangmyongsong 4 on February 7. This immediately drew attention of the world, and is arousing a host of opinions in the international community.
The history of satellite launch by mankind covers 60 years. Many countries have launched their satellites, but why has the launch of a satellite by the DPRK become breaking news in the world?
It is because, first of all, it was launched under extreme conditions.
The DPRK is not a large country. It is miraculously maintaining its existence under the tenacious and extreme sanctions and blockades by the US, self-appointed international police, and the countries that followed it intentionally or by force. Such a country can never be found elsewhere in the world.
Launching a satellite is an independent and legitimate right of a sovereign state. Peaceful use of outer space is an aspiration of every country, and it has become a generalized reality. However, the US and its followers have tried their best to deprive this just right of the DPRK. Whenever the DPRK launched a satellite, they railroaded a “sanctions resolution” through the UN Security Council in order to stifle its economy and deprive its people of their right to survival.
In these circumstances the DPRK launched another satellite.
This demonstrated once again its strength and mettle to all the hostile forces that are attempting to check its advance, those who are not desirous of seeing its people well-off and who fear its development.
Another reason is the great speed of the country’s space development.
Successful launch of Kwangmyongsong 1 in August 1998, Kwangmyongsong 2 in April 2009, Kwangmyongsong 3-2 in December 2012, and now in February 2016, Kwangmyongsong 4.
It seems we are looking at a graph of the multistage leaps of the DPRK towards a space power.
In the 1990s socialist Korea was suffering the worst-ever trials owing to the intensive rackets for all-sided blockade raised by the anti-socialist forces throughout the world to stamp out socialism on the earth by taking advantage of the collapse of socialism in the former Soviet Union and the Eastern European countries. In those days Kwangmyongsong 1 was launched to the great surprise of the world.
Now, not more than 20 years later, the DPRK has achieved a remarkable progress in space development. After two times of test launch, it succeeded in launching an earth observation satellite, and the inclined orbital satellite developed into pole orbital satellite.
The next reason is that the DPRK is a space power both in name and in reality.
There are some countries in the world that launch or have their satellites, but only a few of them launch their satellites by means of their own launch pads and insert them into orbit by means of their own launch vehicles. Even those that manufacture and launch satellites depend on others for many of the component parts, technology and expert skills.
However, the DPRK resolved all the problems with their own materials, technology and effort. The scientists and technicians involved in manufacturing, launching and controlling the indigenous satellites are all native Koreans.
The DPRK, having already worked out a bright blueprint for exploring outer space, is stepping up its realization. Kwangmyongsong 4 was launched under the 2016 plan of the five-year national space development plan.

Indeed, the DPRK is a space power.


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, met the scientists and technicians in the field of researches into nuclear weapons and guided the work for mounting nuclear warheads on ballistic rockets.
He learned in detail about the signal successes made by the nuclear scientists and technicians in the field of national defence science in the work true to the party's line of founding the Juche-oriented nuclear force.
He listened with great attention to the briefing on the research conducted to tip various type tactical and strategic ballistic rockets with nuclear warheads and acquainted himself with the specifications and mechanism of the miniaturized powerful nuclear warheads with a Korean-style structure of mixed charge.
Praising the nuclear scientists and technicians, trustworthy "nuclear combatants" of the party, for having made a signal success in the national defence scientific researches to significantly bolster up the nation's defence capability and self-defensive deterrent true to the party's line of simultaneously developing the two fronts, he noted it is very gratifying to see the nuclear warheads with the Korean-style structure of mixed charge adequate for prompt thermo-nuclear reaction. The nuclear warheads have been standardized to be fit for ballistic rockets by miniaturizing them, he noted, adding this can be called true nuclear deterrent.
He noted with great satisfaction that Koreans can do anything if they have a will.
Being a proud nuclear weapons state at present, we have a firm guarantee for making a breakthrough in the drive for economic construction and improving the people's standard of living on the basis of the powerful nuclear war deterrent, he stressed.
He said that the WPK's line of simultaneously developing the two fronts is not a temporary counter-action for coping with the rapidly changing situation but a strategic line to be permanently held fast to as long as the imperialists' nuclear threat and arbitrary practices persist.
He called on the nuclear scientists, the frontline combatants responsible for the country's nuclear deterrent, to creditably perform their honorable mission and duty on behalf of the party, the country and the revolution on the first battle line for decisively foiling with a nuclear treasured sword the enemies' daily escalating reckless moves to stifle the DPRK and glorifying it as the matchless nuclear power which no force on earth dares to provoke.
Noting that our nuclear force's real "enemy" is a nuclear war itself, he added that the stronger our nuclear strike capability gets, the more powerful our deterrent to aggression and nuclear war grows and it is the most just and reliable way of preventing the country from a nuclear war disaster to firmly bolster up the nuclear force both in quality and quantity.
The right to make a preemptive nuclear strike is by no means a monopoly of the U.S., he said, declaring that if the U.S. imperialists infringe upon the DPRK's sovereignty and right to existence with nuclear weapons, it will never hesitate to make a preemptive nuclear strike at them.
He expressed great expectation and belief that scientists and technicians in the field of researches into nuclear weapons would develop and produce more Korean-style various type nuclear weapons of Juche to completely contain the enemies with nuclear force and thus provide a firmer guarantee for the eternal future of Kim Il Sung's nation and Kim Jong Il's Korea.

He was accompanied by General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the KPA Strategic Force, Hong Yong Chil and Kim Yo Jong, vice department directors of the Central Committee of the WPK.

Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 joint military exercises kicked off by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces are becoming more reckless as the days go by.
The enemies are opening to public without hesitation that the largest-ever Ssangyong drill being staged in the Phohang area of south Korea is the climax of OPLAN 5015 to "bring down the social system" by striking the supreme headquarters and major core facilities in the DPRK through the "operation to advance into Pyongyang" accompanied by a sudden surprise landing on the DPRK.
The General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) in a statement Saturday said that the prevailing grave situation makes all the service personnel of the KPA discard the patience which they have long exercised. The KPA General Staff in charge of all operations of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK, upon the authorization of the dignified Supreme Command, formally declares the following military counteractions:
From this moment, the first combined task units stationed in the eastern, central and western sectors of the front will go over to carrying out the operation for pre-emptive retaliatory strike at the enemy groups involved in the Ssangyong drill.
It is the Juche-oriented counter-operation mode of the KPA to immediately contain and wipe out by force of arms troops and means involved in the operation the moment it judges their scenario to intrude into inviolable territory, air and waters over which the DPRK's sovereignty is exercised.
The KPA will counter the enemies' landing drill aiming at "advance into Pyongyang" with the operation to liberate the whole of south Korea including Seoul and the enemies' tactics of "high-density strike" with an ultra-precision blitzkrieg strike of the Korean style.
Steadfast is the will of the KPA to mercilessly wipe out those troops hurled into the "operation for advancing into Pyongyang" and blow up the den of architects of it. Those who intend to launch aggression and war against the DPRK will be as most foolish and miserable as digging their own graves by themselves from that moment. The KPA is waiting for the moment to punish the aggressors, keeping them within its firing range.

The gun roar for retaliating against the aggressors will turn out to be fireworks celebrating national reunification. The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK holding tightly the arms to annihilate the enemies with towering hatred for them are waiting for the dignified Supreme Command to issue an order to launch a preemptive strike of justice on the aggressors.

No sooner had the US and its followers masterminded the UN "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK than the Park Geun Hye group of south Korea announced what it called independent "sanctions" against the DPRK.
 Censuring it, a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) released a statement on March 10. The statement noted: As far as the "sanctions resolution" announced by the Park group is concerned, it is no more than rubbish as it is peppered only with nonsensical items.
The farce is no more than a last-ditch attempt of the puppet group of traitors being frightened by the blast of the DPRK's Juche-based H-bomb for achieving national reunification and a foolish act of psychopaths jumping into fire with faggot on their backs. Park Geun Hye, who is no more than a servant of the US, goes so ridiculous as to dare attempt to undermine the status of the dignified DPRK as a nuclear power and put a brake on the advance of the DPRK's just cause for bolstering up its nuclear force for self-defence.
The DPRK will take the following measures under the condition that Park Geun Hye, obsessed with confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north, unhesitatingly spewed out her venom to impose independent "sanctions" upon the north after shutting down the Kaesong Industrial Zone (KIZ), which was the last hope of the north-south relations.
1. From this moment, we declare all the north-south agreements on the economic cooperation and exchange void.
2. We will totally liquidate all the properties of the south side's business groups and relevant organs in the north side as the south Korean puppet group unilaterally and totally stopped the tour of Mt Kumgang and operation of the KIZ.
3. We will continuously take the planned special measures for hastening the miserable end of the Park Geun Hye group of traitors by dealing fatal political, military and economic blows at it.

The criminal Park Geun Hye group resorting to evil things in the Blue House, the primary target of the Korean People's Army will be made to pay dearly.
