U.S. Aggressor Forces and S. Korean Puppet Army Warned against Their Reckless Provocations

Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army (KPA) released a statement Friday in connection with the fact that the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces side is getting extremely undisguised in its provocative acts of rattling the nerves of the KPA side in the area of Panmunjom.
The statement said:
GIs hurled fully armed MPs of the south Korean puppet army into perpetrating such dangerous provocations as aiming at the KPA side at Oryonggye post on April 20 and 21. Such provocation continued till April 26. Earlier, GIs on patrol duty pointed their fingers at KPA service personnel on guard duty, making weird remarks on April 7. On April 10 they mocked at the KPA side through disgusting expression and behavior.
Moreover, they are intentionally causing confusion by letting a lot of military personnel mill around in the area of the meeting room of Panmunjom under the pretext of "topographic survey" and " confirmation of duties." They are even kicking up a row, staging an odd farce of "notification" with a loudspeaker near the Military Demarcation Line.
What should not be overlooked is that such serious provocations are timed to coincide with the unprecedented all-out offensive to stifle the DPRK by force such as Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 joint war drills.
The area of Panmunjom, where two rival parties are leveling their guns at each other all the time, is the hottest spot where any slight accidental provocative act may result in catastrophic consequences baffling human imagination at a moment.
It is well illustrated by a lot of incidents that occurred in the area in the past.
The U.S. aggressor forces side must be aware of this. It is, however, resorting to serious provocations against on-duty service personnel of the other side, prompted by its premeditated and intentional sinister design.
It will have to pay dearly for its ill-advised attempt to impair the high prestige of the Workers' Party of Korea and the DPRK by straining the already acute situation to the maximum by provoking the KPA side in the sensitive area of Panmunjom and passing the buck for it to the KPA side.
The service personnel of the KPA in Panmunjom keep themselves fully ready to mercilessly punish the provocateurs if their reckless actions go beyond the tolerance limit.
If any clash occurs under the present situation where there is no legal and institutional mechanism to prevent physical clash between both sides, it is bound to cause an unpredictable incident.
The U.S. imperialists and their stooges should not forget even a moment what miserable end 
provocateurs met while going reckless in the area at the risk of death.
There is a limit to the patience of the greatly infuriated service personnel of the KPA. If they persist in their hooliganism despite its repeated warnings, they will meet dog's death any time and in any place.

The KPA will closely follow the future moves of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces' side from this moment.

KCNA Slams Park Geun Hye Regime's Unprecedented Terrorism

Pyongyang, April 29 (KCNA) -- The Park Geun Hye group of traitors in south Korea on the verge of ruin is working with bloodshot eyes to prolong its remaining days through terrorism, allurement and abduction of citizens of the DPRK.
It hurled gangsters of the Intelligence Service (IS) into the operation for alluring and abducting 12 innocent women citizens of the DPRK in broad daylight in conspiracy with brokers in Zhejiang Province, China early in April to take them to south Korea, hideous international terrorism.
This is a shuddering unethical atrocity that can be perpetrated only by the Park group, hordes of confrontation maniacs and barbarians without equals.
The case is, to all intents and purposes, a premeditated and organized group allurement and abduction.
All these operations have been manipulated by the Chongwadae so far.
In June, 2013 Park Geun Hye commanded in the "room for managing crisis" of the underground shelter of the Chongwadae in real time the "operation" for alluring and abducting a group of DPRK citizens and taking them to south Korea, receiving a report from agents of the puppet embassy in a Southeast Asian country.
The then Dong-A Ilbo of south Korea said it was something unprecedented that the "president" directly commanded the "operation for transferring defectors from the north" reminiscent of a spy operation in the underground shelter of the Chongwadae all day long together with diplomacy and security authorities.
US agents, anti-DPRK conspiratorial bodies such as "Duri Hana Missionaries' Society", "Good Friends" and "Council for Improving Human Rights in North Korea" and terrorists and spies under the guise of religionists, businessmen and philanthropists financed by the puppet authorities are active in the Northeast region of China for alluring and abducting operations.
The puppet forces set up the "Foundation for Supporting Defectors from the North" and the budget for "ferrying defectors from the north" for the purpose of abducting citizens of the DPRK. They are busy conducting modern type slave trade, paying "service money" to south Korean students studying in foreign countries, traders, tourists and even members of foreign mafias.
They are questioning abductees of the DPRK for six months at the "Central Joint Interrogation Center" made up of those concerned of the IS, the Ministry of Unification, the Defense Ministry and the police. Then they are conducting "anti-communist brainwashing" of them for three or four months, perpetrating all sorts of violence against them in a concentration camp called "Hana Complex."
The IS gangsters are now forcing "defection" upon the women abductees by employing appeasement, deception, threat and blackmail while claming "they made a group defection at their free will" and "expressed skepticism about the social system in the north".
If their claim is true, there is no reason for them to keep the abductees in custody in solitary rooms one by one and keep them strictly away from the outside and they are now on a hunger strike, strongly demanding their prompt return to their motherland.
There is no ground whatsoever for the above-said women to defect to south Korea by abandoning their native places and parents, brothers and sisters.

The Park group will never be able to escape punishment for having perpetrated the thrice- cursed abduction in a bid to tarnish the image of the DPRK making a long drive.

Kim Jong Un Provides Field Guidance to Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station No. 3

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 Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station No. 3 successfully completed as a gift of loyalty which young people, masters of the youth power, presented to the 7th Congress of the WPK.
He shook hands with commanding officers one by one, praising them for having done a lot of work.
Our reliable young people of Mt. Paektu have completed the project in the run-up to the congress of the party, thus carrying out the order given by me four months ahead of schedule, he said, adding that another fresh legendary tale about youth was created in the wake of last year in the land of Mt. Paektu where the Juche revolution started.
He looked round the Exhibition of the Paektusan Hero Young People's Feats.
Looking at exhibits one by one there, he said that merely watching the Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station brings the image of leader Kim Jong Il to my mind. The completion of the power station No. 3 made it possible to implement his behest, he stressed.
He noted with deep emotion that what pleased him was the appearance of young people as heroes of the times and giants who performed heroic feats as desired by Kim Jong Il rather than the creation of the capability to solve the problem of electricity in Samjiyon County.
In order to know how great the WPK's idea of attaching importance to the youth is and how rosy the future of the youth power is, everybody should visit the Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station, he said, emphasizing that the power station is not only an electricity-generating base but also a center for education eloquently proving the validity and vitality of the party's idea of attaching importance to the youth and in what perseverance our young people created the fresh spirit of the times.
Saying that a huge man-made lake appeared in the land of Mt. Paektu after the construction of the dam of the Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station No. 1, he named the lake the "Paektu Hero Youth Lake".
He went round the Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station No. 3.
By completing the Paektusan Hero Youth Power Stations Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in a matter of a year, the iron fists of the heroic youth which have grown strong under the loving care of the party hit hard the heads of the U.S. imperialists and their followers hell-bent on their moves to ratchet up sanctions against the DPRK and stifle it on the principle of self-reliance and self-development.
The revolutionary soldier spirit and Kanggye spirit were created in the period of the Arduous March, forced march and the Paektusan hero youth spirit was done in the present difficult period, a clear proof of the just leadership of the great leaders and the WPK that trained young people as reserves, advancing group and wing of the party as required by the developing revolution assuming protracted nature from the very day the party was founded, he noted.
The completion of the power station proved once again that party's determination precisely means a reality and practice, young Koreans are creditably playing a vanguard role in translating the party's determination into reality and their strength is inexhaustible, indeed, he said, adding that he felt irrepressible urge to meet all of them and they did a lot of work. He requested the commanding officers to convey his wish for their good health to them.
He gave an instruction to hold with splendor a ceremony of commissioning the power station to strikingly demonstrate the indomitable mental power and spirit of young Koreans. He gave on the spot an instruction related to the ceremony and personally assigned a new militant duty to be fulfilled by the Paektusan Hero Youth Shock Brigade.
He was accompanied by Secretary Choe Ryong Hae, Department Director Ri Il Hwan and Vice Department Director Jo Yong Won of the WPK Central Committee.
Le calme régnait dans N'Djamena vendredi après la réélection sans surprise, dès le premier tour, du chef de l'Etat tchadien Idriss Deby Itno, au pouvoir depuis 26 ans, pour un cinquième mandat, même si l'opposition dénonce un "hold-up électoral".
Dans l'après-midi, le Premier ministre, Albert Pahimi Padacke, a "exhorté les uns et les autres à privilégier le cas échéant les voies de recours constitutionnelles devant les instances compétentes". Avant de prévenir "que toute tentative d'atteinte à l'ordre public se heurtera à la rigueur froide de la loi".
Le chef de l'opposition Saleh Kebzabo arrive en deuxième position avec seulement 12,80% des voix contre 61,56% au chef de l'Etat, selon les résultats provisoires annoncés jeudi soir par la Commission électorale nationale indépendante (Céni).
Les résultats provisoires de l'élection qui s'est tenue le 10 avril doivent être avalisés dans un délai de 15 jours par le Conseil constitutionnel.
Plus de six millions d'électeurs étaient inscrits et le taux de participation a été de 71,11%.
Au total, 13 candidats se présentaient à cette élection dont Idriss Deby, qui disposait des structures d'Etat et de moyens financiers nettement supérieurs à ses adversaires, était le grand favori.
Toute la nuit, la victoire du président Deby a été saluée par des coups de canon et des rafales de fusil automatique tirées par les militants de son parti, le Mouvement patriotique du salut (MPS), qui s'étaient donné rendez-vous sur la vaste place de la Nation de N'Djamena, face au palais présidentiel.
- N'Djamena quadrillée-
Vendredi, comme la veille et le jour du premier tour, la capitale était quadrillée par nombre de policiers, gendarmes et bérets rouges de la garde présidentielle, présents à tous les carrefours, a constaté l'AFP.
Les huit candidats opposants, qui accusent depuis plusieurs jours le pouvoir de fraudes et ont envisagé la constitution "d'un gouvernement de salut public", se sont réunis vendredi dans la capitale.
Ils ont ensuite "réitéré leur volonté à défendre la vérité des urnes qui est favorable au changement". "Les résultats en notre possession tirés des procès-verbaux remis aux délégués des candidats dans les bureaux de vote et qui seront publiés incessamment contredisent les chiffres de la Céni", affirment-ils.
Ils "réaffirment leur refus de reconnaître le hold-up électoral et les institutions qui en émanent" et "appellent la population à sauvegarder jalousement et sereinement sa souveraineté".
Avant la publication des résultats, ces huit candidats avaient estimé qu'aucun candidat "ne peut l'emporter au premier tour" au vu des résultats dans les régions dont ils disaient disposer.
Les signataires dénonçaient "la disparition de centaines d'urnes et de milliers de procès-verbaux", ajoutée notamment au "trafic de cartes d'électeurs" de la part du MPS.
Ils dénonçaient également la disparition de militaires qui n'auraient pas voté pour Idriss Deby et dont certains, "arrêtés et emprisonnés", sont "à ce jour portés disparus".
A part la réélection de Deby, la bonne opération est celle du candidat arrivé troisième, Laokein Kourayo Medar, maire de Moundou, capitale économique située dans le sud, qui remporte 10,69 % des suffrages pour une première participation à une présidentielle. "Il a eu une bonne gestion dans sa ville, les électeurs l'ont soutenu", commente un journaliste.
- '1er tour, KO' -
La réélection de Deby, dont le slogan de campagne était "1er tour, KO", intervient au moment où les administrations, hôpitaux, écoles et universités sont en grève depuis de longues semaines: pour des arriérés de salaires, de bourses, toujours pour les moyens de survie quotidienne.
Mais la société civile n'a pas le droit de manifester pour une alternance démocratique. Pour avoir enfreint cette interdiction, quatre de ses leaders ont été emprisonnés trois semaines avant d'être condamnés à quatre mois de prison avec sursis.
A cette tension sociale, s'ajoute la menace d'attentats par les islamistes du groupe nigérian Boko Haram, qui ont frappé deux fois N'Djamena en 2015, et qui légitime d'autant plus l'imposant déploiement sécuritaire d'un régime guerrier qui, en 26 ans de pouvoir, s'est maintenu par les armes.
Malgré la manne pétrolière depuis 2003, le Tchad est classé par l'ONU parmi les cinq pays les plus pauvres au monde. Soixante-dix pour cent de ses 13 millions d'habitants sont analphabètes. (AFP 22/04/16)
À la tête du Tchad depuis 1990, Idriss Déby Itno a été réélu dès le premier tour de la présidentielle. Décrié dans son pays, le chef de l’État a su gagner la confiance des Occidentaux en se plaçant à la pointe de la lutte anti-terroriste. Portrait.
Il avait fait campagne en se présentant comme le seul à être en mesure de garantir la stabilité dans la région. Arrivé au pouvoir par les armes en 1990, le président tchadien, Idriss Déby Itno, a été réélu pour un cinquième mandat en recueillant 61,6 % des voix au premier tour, a annoncé dans la nuit du jeudi 21 au vendredi 22 avril la Commission électorale nationale indépendante (Céni).
"Nous sommes heureux d'avoir atteint l'objectif que nous nous étions fixés : une victoire au premier tour", s’est félicité son porte-parole, Mahamat Hissein. Mais l’opposition, elle, voit dans cette élection en un seul coup l’illustration du "hold-up électoral" perpétré par le pouvoir. Jeudi, avant la publication des résultats, huit candidats avaient ainsi accusé le camp présidentiel de fraude, estimant qu'aucun candidat ne pouvait "l'emporter au premier tour" au vu des résultats dans les régions dont ils disent disposer.
Le président sortant a obtenu 61,56% des voix à l’issue de la présidentielle du 10 avril dernier.
Idriss Deby Itno, qui s’est adressé à ses partisans, parle de « victoire du peuple » et a demandé à ces derniers de garder leur calme en entendant la confirmation au Conseil constitutionnel.
Plusieurs sources signalent, des tirs à l’arme lourde et de petits calibres autour de l’hôtel résidence où ont été proclamés lesdits résultats.
Au pouvoir au Tchad depuis 26 ans, il n'avait pas l'intention de céder la main. Idriss Déby a été réélu pour un cinquième mandat au premier tour de la présidentielle du 10 avril avec 61,56% des voix, selon les résultats provisoires publiés jeudi soir par la Commission électorale nationale indépendante (CENI).
Le chef de l'opposition, Saleh Kebzabo, arrive en deuxième position avec 12,80 % des voix.
Au total, 13 candidats se présentaient à cette élection. Ancien chef d’état-major et conseiller militaire d’Hissène Habré, qu’il a chassé du pouvoir en 1991, Idriss Déby, 63 ans était évidemment le grand favori du scrutin.

La France devrait voir d'un bon œil cette réélection. Car si, officiellement, elle n'a pris parti pour aucun des candidats, elle ne peut que se réjouir de voir son meilleur allié au Sahel rester au pouvoir. Sur l'impulsion de Déby, le Tchad est en effet devenu le fer de lance dans la région pour la lutte contre les mouvements djihadistes et plus particulièrement Boko Haram. L’opération française Barkhane est d'ailleurs commandée par un officier général depuis un poste de commandement unique stationné à N’Djamena, au Tchad.

Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to Newly Built Mindulle Notebook Factory

Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the newly built Mindulle Notebook Factory.
He gave precious instructions related to the construction of the factory and guided its layout and named it "Mindulle Notebook Factory", solving all problems arising in its construction.
He went round different places of the factory to learn in detail about the production there.
Saying that he was pleased to see the factory producing notebooks of dozens of kinds for kindergarteners and students of primary, junior secondary and senior secondary schools and universities, he added that quality of paper is good and binding of books is flawless and their designs are suited to psychology of children and students of various ages and features of subjects.
To provide the children and students with locally produced quality school things is of weighty significance in instilling into them the spirit of valuing and loving our things, he noted.
The factory has an important duty to perform in thoroughly carrying out the party's policy of attaching importance to education, he stressed, setting forth the tasks to be fulfilled by the factory such as the issue of producing 150 million notebooks in the future, though its annual production capacity at present is 50 million, the issues of increasing the level of IT basis of the business management and the proportion of locally available raw and other materials, the issue of newly building the process of producing packing materials at the factory and the issue of laying railways branching into it.
Noting that the factory is the one to which the party is attaching primary attention, he called on it to produce more quality notebooks and supply them to the children and students so that they may keenly feel the party's loving care for the younger generation and the future.
He underscored the need for the factory not to stop the production even a moment and showed deep loving care for it, saying that the party would settle all problems arising in the operation of the factory.

He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won and Kim Yo Jong, vice department directors of the WPK Central Committee, and
Kim Ung Chol and Ma Won Chun, leading officials of the National Defence Commission.

National Reunification Institute Indicts Park Geun Hye for Turning S. Kore a into Human Rights Tundra

Pyongyang, April 16 (KCNA) -- The National Reunification Institute issued a white paper Saturday to denounce the Park Geun Hye group of traitors for turning south Korea into the world's worst veritable hell.
The white paper cited facts to prove the south Korean economy faced worst crisis, its people is mired in dire destitution, big disasters occur in an unbroken chain and all kinds of crimes, corruption and irregularities are prevalent in south Korea.
The document said Park Geun Hye pushed the south Korean economy into the worst catastrophic phase, far from achieving "economic prosperity" which she trumpeted about so loudly.
It continued:
Due to the conclusion of the humiliating "Free Trade Agreement" 83 percent of trade items of south Korea were nudged out of competition and more than 50 percent of export-oriented businesses are suffering losses. The reeling economies in the neighboring countries caused the export volume of south Korea, a key factor which keeps its economy afloat, undergo a continued dwindling. It showed 12.2 percent cut-down in February this year as against the same month last year.
The yearly average economic growth rate for the past three years of Park Geun Hye in office failed to reach two thirds of that during the years of Kim Dae Jung and Roh Moo Hyun, far less than that during the Lee Myung Bak regime.
Big businesses which faced bankruptcy later last year number 54, 37 percent increase from 2012, and the number of big businesses which are not able to pay interests with their own business profits stands at 567. More than 2 000 minor businesses producing export goods went bankrupt en masse which splashed to the overall manufacturing field, leading to the shutdown of over 90 000 minor businesses.
At present the number of jobless people stands at over 4.5 million or 23.3 percent increase from that three years ago, and the number of underemployed hits 10 million. The jobless rate of young people, in particular, hits the record high of 12.5 percent.
The total amount of debts of south Korea runs into astronomical figures, the amount its population has to pay for several years without any consumption.
The shutdown of the Kaesong Industrial Zone put over 6 000 businesses on the verge of bankruptcy and left 124 000 workers unemployed overnight.
The action taken by south Korea to scuttle the north-south economic cooperation reportedly brought direct or indirect losses worth tens of billions of USD to south Korea.
During Park Geun Hye's three years of office the south Korean people have been driven into
the slough of poverty.
The absolute paupers in south Korea now number over 5.7 million and there are millions of people who are unable to get rid of poverty no matter how hard they work.
The gap between the rich and the poor in income has become 12 times wide though it was 8.8 times ten years ago and a handful of the rich holds 45 percent of total income, making south Korea the worst region in Asia in terms of inequality.
Since Park Geun Hye's assumption of office the whole land of south Korea has been torn with huge disasters and accidents, causing uneasiness and horror among the people.
A typical example is the sinking of ferry Sewol in April 2014 that shocked the world.
Last year alone 2 740 cases of ship-related accidents occurred, which is twice as many as that in 2012, leaving 112 dead or missing.
In less than one year and a half since Park took office, more than 50 big accidents of various kinds occurred.
Today south Korea tops the world's list of traffic accidents.
The number of workers who suffered due to industrial disaster in 2014 numbered over 240 on a daily average, over 90 000 in total in a year.
All kinds of crimes, corruptions and irregularities have become endemic in south Korea.
Since Park's coming to power, the number of crimes of various kinds was recorded over 6 000 on a daily basis and over 2 million on a yearly basis.
The size of illegal economy relying on prostitution, gambling and drug-trafficking has snowballed to reach 390 billion USD or 26 percent increase from 2012.
The yearly number of those committing suicide is over 15 000, making south Korea top the world list.

The Park Geun Hye group which reduced south Korea into the veritable hell and decadence- infested cesspool is still talking about "human rights" of someone and trumpeting about "economic growth with emphasis on job creation" and "building happy and lively society". But this is the height of impudence and hypocrisy, the white paper stressed.

Institute of International Political Studies of DPRK Discloses Truth about Anti-DPRK Fabrication Made by U.S. and Its Followers

Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- The Institute of International Political Studies of the DPRK Sunday issued a statement probing the truth behind the anti-DPRK slanders and sophism made by the U.S. and its followers.
It said:
The U.S. and its followers' steady trumpeting about "provocation" and "threat" from the north is no more than shameless and brigandish sophism to make profound confusion of right and wrong.
Their sinister purpose is to isolate and destroy the DPRK on the earth even by rallying the motley crowds as they are afraid of the DPRK which is bolstering up its strength.
"Violation of international law and UN resolution" which the U.S. and hostile forces so persistently cite when pulling up the DPRK is no more than false charges of those who do not know about the foundation and essence of the international political order.
This is an expression of cross temper and undisguised blackmail against the DPRK which neither kowtows to their high-handed and arbitrary practices nor follows the order of jungle law centered on the U.S.
The most abnormal and rogue state in the world is the U.S. and its followers as they work hard to turn the earth into the place ruled by jungle law in defiance of international law and conventions on equality for all and international peace.
The U.S. and its followers are making it a fait accompli and spreading the story of the "instability of the social system of the DPRK at various meetings. This is nothing but senseless rhetoric of those who daydream themselves as they have anxiously waited for the "collapse of social system of the DPRK" for decades.
As recognized by public at home and abroad, the DPRK has never suffered any slightest political vacillation, social instability, chaos and disturbance despite a number of harsh ordeals and difficulties worse than those during a war.
But under the rotten capitalist political system, society is shaking to the very foundation owing to the continuous big and small anti-government actions and public resistances as well as chaos and crises beyond control.
The invectives of the U.S. and the Park Geun Hye group against the DPRK's line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force are the last shriek of those frightened by the eye-opening development of the DPRK and its upcoming final victory.
They are free to talk about the DPRK.
However, what we would like to advise is that they had better talk about things they saw for themselves.
Pyongyang always keeps its door wide open even for those who did hurt the DPRK in the past in a customary and blinded way.

But if they continue to slander the inviolable and pure idea and social system in the DPRK and resort to hostile propaganda toward it by mobilizing international bodies and venal media to attain their most despicable purpose in spite of our tolerance and patience, the service personnel and people of the DPRK will never pardon them but force them whoever they may be to pay dearly.

S. Korean Regime Urged to Send back Abductees of DPRK

Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) Sunday released a statement hitting out at the Park Geun Hye group of traitors for becoming all the more undisguised in their confrontation and conspiratorial racket.
The Park Geun Hye group recently committed a hideous abduction against the DPRK. It lured into other country in the most despicable and brutal manner DPRK's employees of a restaurant in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province of China in collusion with brokers active there, before abducting them into south Korea.
The statement branded this as an inhuman act that can be committed only by such fascist tyrant as Park Geun Hye and the group of ferocious terrorists and gangsters such as the puppet Intelligence Service.
However, the Park group is working hard to mislead public opinion by describing the case as "a group defection from the north" and "substantial effect of sanctions" and "skepticism about north's social system", "reflection of yearning" for the south Korean society.
As for those abductees, they are talents who grew up in happiness while learning to their heart's content under the care of the DPRK.
There can be no socio-political and economic reason for them to be "skeptical" about the social system and about their beloved parents and family members as they have enjoyed a highly stable life under the social system in the DPRK.
Moreover, they are the women with pure conscience as they have never imagined that they would be taken to such horrible hell as south Korea.
The abduction of the citizens of the DPRK is an extension and vivid manifestation of the hideous "north policy" of Park Geun Hye.
The CPRK clarifies its crucial stand as follows under the prevailing gruesome situation:
1.   Park Geun Hye and her group must apologize for the unprecedented group abduction and immediately and unconditionally send them back.
If Park and her group keep them in custody and persecute them in a bid to press them into defection and cause harm to their physical condition even a bit, the Park group will be made to pay dearly for the crime.
2.     The Park Geun Hye group must sternly punish those involved in the allurement and abduction and backstage wire-pullers or hand them over to the law enforcement organ of the DPRK side and make assurances against the recurrence of similar crimes to the DPRK and the international community.
In case those involved in the allurement and abduction and back-stage wire-pullers are neither handed over to the DPRK side nor punished, and no assurances are given against the recurrence
of similar crimes, the DPRK will consider the recent case was committed at the direct instruction of Chongwadae and it is an expression of the intention to keep abducting DPRK citizens in the future, too, and will take thousand-fold retaliatory measures targeting Chongwadae.
3. The Park Geun Hye group must clearly understand the will of the army and people of the DPRK to annihilate the enemies and must stop running riot.
The DPRK will never remain an on-looker to our citizens falling victim to political conspiracy after being abducted in group in broad daylight and taken to such a veritable hell as south Korea.
The infuriated army and people of the DPRK are closely following every movement of the puppet group.
We will never tolerate the recent terrorist gangster-like act but will certainly force the criminals to pay a dear price.

In case the Park group of traitors keeps DPRK citizens in custody, defying the just demand of the DPRK, the group will have to pay an unimaginably high price.

Park Geun Hye Group Bound to Meet Final End: CPRK Secretariat

Pyongyang, April 16 (KCNA) -- As reported, the "Saenuri Party" of south Korea, the conservative ruling party, suffered a heavy defeat and the opposition forces held the overwhelming upper hand at the puppet "National Assembly" election held in south Korea on April 13.
To say nothing of the majority seats touted by the coteries of the "Saenuri Party", they lost the position of the No.1 party at the "National Assembly" and suffered defeat even in Seoul and the areas they described as power bases, becoming a mourning house.
The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) in information bulletin no. 1104 on Saturday said this is a resolute and stern punishment to Park Geun Hye and the coteries of the "Saenuri Party" going against the south Korean people's mindset and the trend of the times. The bulletin said:

In the past puppet presidential election the Park group seized power with such deceptive commitments as "people's integrity", "era of people's happiness" and "improvement of south- north relations through trust".

KCNA Commentary on Validity of DPRK's Measures to Bolster up Nuclear Deterrence for Self-Defence

Pyongyang, April 16 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is vociferously terming the DPRK's measures for bolstering up nuclear deterrence as "provocations" in the international arena in a bid to give impression that the former is concerned for scrapping nuclear weapons worldwide.
It was censured for its trite shameful behavior at the recent 4th "Nuclear Security Summit" held in Washington and G-7 foreign ministers' meeting in Hiroshima.
Foreign media are asserting that the DPRK's nuclear program and tests serve as strong deterrence to cope with the U.S. moves for aggression and the U.S.-south Korea joint military drills are harassing peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and escalating tensions there.
A deputy editor of the Egyptian newspaper Al —Ahram Al - Misaiya in a commentary titled
"Nuclear security and wrong action of the U.S." said that Washington is pressurizing north Korea by channeling all regional and international efforts while describing its nuclear program as a great danger of security and stability in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. However, the U.S. is feigning ignorance of Israel's nuclear scenario, claiming that it is designed to achieve peace, he noted, adding: This is nothing but an attempt to convince the world that what north Korea acquired is destructive nuclear weapons but what Israel has in place is nukes for peace. The U.S. administration bereft of impartiality had better review its policy over the sensitive international issues, the issue of global security, in particular.
The U.S. nuclear threat and blackmail and joint military drills are the source of pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of war.
It has posed a ceaseless nuclear threat to the DPRK, deploying nuclear weapons in south Korea and staging frantic nuclear war drills against the DPRK for over half a century.
Even at this time the largest-ever U.S.-south Korea nuclear war saber-rattling is under way in south Korea for invading the DPRK.
Key Resolve joint military drill, a combined command exercise in which all U.S. man-killing nuclear hardware and special operation forces were involved, came to an end but Foal Eagle 16 joint drill, rehearsal for mounting a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK under the simulated conditions of an actual war, is going on.
The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces staged "operation for advancing into inland depth of the north", "operation for occupying Pyongyang", "beheading operation", etc. in the land and seas by mobilizing special operation forces.
Their nuclear war rehearsal for aggression clearly proves once again what is the root cause of escalating tension on the Korean peninsula.
The DPRK's access to nuclear weapons is not a threat but an inevitable self-defensive option for protecting the country and nation from the nuclear disaster to be brought by the U.S.

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA on April 12 over the absurd story about dialogue being floated around the DPRK.
A touch-and-go situation is now prevailing in the Korean peninsula due to the moves of the US for a nuclear war. Nevertheless, some countries are talking about the six-party talks, simultaneous pushing forward of denuclearization and the conclusion of a peace treaty and the like.
Even a mere child knows well that dialogue is impossible under the present tense situation on the peninsula.
There is only the danger of nuclear clash on the Korean peninsula due to the unprecedented US-south Korea joint military drills for aggression and the entirely just measures taken by the Korean People’s Army to cope with them.
Dialogue should be based on mutual respect and equality among its parties.
The DPRK doesn’t oppose dialogue but categorically rejects any unequal dialogue.
It is the DPRK’s consistent and principled stand not to have a dialogue under unilateral pressure.
Dialogue and military threat, dialogue and sanctions can never go together.
Such logic that the purpose of imposing sanctions is to have a dialogue can never work on the DPRK.
Due to the ever-escalating hostile acts of the US, the nuclear issue of the DPRK has long been away from its negotiating table.
The DPRK’s proposal that it would put a moratorium on its nuclear test in return for the US halt to the joint war drills would no longer be valid as the latter turned it down.
As already clarified by the DPRK, it will steadily and dynamically push ahead with its line of simultaneously pushing forward the two fronts until the world is denuclearized.
The urgent issue to be settled on the Korean peninsula is to put a definite end to the US hostile policy toward the DPRK, the root cause of all problems.

Whether the issue would be solved through dialogue and negotiations or through other methods entirely depends on the attitude of the US.


A spokesman for the Central Committee of the Red Cross Society of the DPRK released a statement Tuesday in connection with the fact that the south Korean authorities lured and abducted a group of DPRK employees in broad daylight.The statement said:The south Korean authorities, on April 7, reporting about the "group defection" of DPRK's employees of a restaurant in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province of China, claimed "they accepted the employees from a humanitarian stand by respecting their will".They are also building uppublic opinion to give impression that the case of "group defection" is a "substantial effect" of the implementation of "UN resolution on sanctions against the north" and a reflection of the "skepticism and aspiration of the northerners for south Korean society".Refuting it as an unprecedented group abduction committed by the gangsters of the puppet Intelligence Service, the statement clarified the following stand:We sternly denounce the group abduction of the citizens of the DPRK as a hideous crime against its dignity and social system and the life and security of its citizens.The recent case of "group defection" cooked up by the puppet group is a crucial provocation against the DPRK which can never be tolerated as it is an unbearable insultto the people of the DPRK.2. The puppet group should apologize for the hideous group abduction and immediately send all of the abductees back to the DPRK.The puppet group has to ferret out criminals and the back-stage manipulators who took the citizens of the DPRK to south Korea by employing all sorts of appeasement, deception and gimmicks and bring the criminals to justice in the DPRK.We have detailed information of how the gangsters of the puppet Intelligence Service lured and appeased thecitizens of the DPRK to south Korea and which country connived it and which country in Southeast Asia they were taken through as well as the method used for the purpose.The south Korean puppet forces should not keep the citizens of the DPRK away fromcontact with outside under the pretext of "protection of safety" and appease and pressurize them in the back room but unconditionally accept our demand and send back those innocent nationals of the DPRK without delay.In case the puppet group does notsend them back, it will have to pay a high price for the serious consequences to be entailed by its action.The south Korean authorities should bear in mind that unless they apologize for the hideous abduction and send those abductees back, they will face unimaginable serious consequences and severe punishment.

Kim Jong Un Guides Ground Test of Jet of High-power Solid-fuel Rocket Engine and Its Cascade Separation

Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, personally came out to the testing site and guided the ground test of jet of high-power solid-fuel rocket engine and its cascade separation.
The test was aimed to examine the structural safety of the rocket engine newly designed and manufactured by the Korean style and its thrust and estimate the working specifications of heat separation system and other system.
Before the test, he touched the engine smoothly and said with confidence that the test would prove successful as it was manufactured by defence scientists and technicians of the DPRK, a product of self-reliance and self-development.
He gave an instruction to start the test.
The engine spewed out huge flames with deafening boom.
The results of the test proved that the values of estimation conformed to those of measurement to an amazing extent and they are in full line with all scientific and technological indexes.
He expressed great pleasure and satisfaction, clapping his hands and congratulating them on their success.
He noted with great pleasure that the successful test provided a firm guarantee for attaining the high goals of national defence science and technology without fail this year when the Seventh Congress of the WPK would be held and helped boost the power of ballistic rockets capable of mercilessly striking hostile forces.
The successful test of the jet and cascade separation of the above-said rocket engine which is of historical and strategic importance by dint of self-reliance and self-development makes it possible to remarkably bolster the military capability of the invincible revolutionary Paektusan army, he noted, stressing that the feats the national defence scientists and technicians of the DPRK performed by working hard to increase the national defence capability would always go down in the history of the country. He had a photo session with them.
He expressed expectation and belief that the scientists and technicians in the field of national defence science would achieve successes one after another to instill conviction and optimism into the service personnel and people of the DPRK and, at the same time, strike great horror and terror into the hearts of the enemies, bearing in mind the heavy yet honorable duties they have assumed before the times, the revolution, the country and its people.

Kim Jong Un Guides Large-scale Intensive Striking Drill of Long-range Artillery Pieces

Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided the large-scale intensive striking drill of long-range artillery pieces of the KPA large combined units on the front for blowing up the Chongwadae and the reactionary ruling machines in Seoul.
The largest-ever exercise was aimed to demonstrate once again the might of the Paektusan army to bring the most miserable doom to the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet group of traitors through the above-said striking action for turning into a sea of flames Seoul, the den of the Park Geun Hye group of traitors who dared stage the undisguised "precision striking drill" targeting the supreme headquarters of the Korean revolution and the office of the WPK Central Committee.
Involved in the drill were more than one hundred long-range artillery pieces of various calibers including the Juche artillery pieces of the elite artillery units of the large combined units on the front.
Prior to the start of the drill, General Pak Yong Sik, minister of the People's Armed Forces, made a speech.
The firing drill of artillery pieces today is the one for devotedly defending the Supreme Commander and the retaliatory one of justice to demonstrate the tremendous might of the Paektusan Army to inflict the most miserable doom upon traitor Park Geun Hye, he said.
He called upon the elite artillery combatants of the large combined units on the front to make large intensive strikes with long-range artillery pieces, reflecting the faith of devotedly defending the leader and the unshakable resolution to annihilate the enemy, and thus blow up the Chongwadae and the reactionary ruling machines in Seoul bossed by the Park Geun Hye puppet group of traitors.
Kim Jong Un mounted a field observation post and received a report on the plan for the drill before issuing an order to start it.
The moment, the artillery pieces opened fire with deafening roar, fiercely pounding the imaginary targets--the Chongwadae and the puppet reactionary ruling machines in Seoul.
Watching the brave artillerymen on the front mercilessly hit the targets, he said they are very good at firing. I am pleased with their very accurate striking, he added.
Expressing great satisfaction over the successful drill, he extended the thanks of the KPA Supreme Commander to all units which participated in the drill.
He said that the KPA should prepare all service personnel as a-match-for-a-hundred fighters capable of fighting actual battles by intensifying their training just as the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu and keep itself highly alerted so that it may mercilessly pound the reactionary ruling machines in Seoul, the cesspool of evils, and advance to accomplish the historic cause of national reunification, once it receives an order for attack.

Watching the drill were executive members of the KPA Committee of the WPK, commanding officers of the General Political Bureau, the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces and the General Staff of the KPA, commanders and political commissars of all services, corps commanders and political commissars, commanders and political commissars of artillery units, instructors of military academies at all levels and officials of the C.C., the WPK.
