U.S., S. Korean Warmonger’s Plan to Stage Largest-ever Joint Military Drills Flailed

A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea released a statement on Sunday to denounce the U.S. and the south Korean warmongers for planning to stage the largest-ever joint military exercises with the involvement of Carl Vinson and Ronald Reagan nuclear task forces in the waters off the Korean peninsula in upcoming June under the pretext of the DPRK's legitimate measure for bolstering the military capabilities for self-defense.
In the past the U.S. frequently infiltrated nuclear carrier task force into the waters off the Korean peninsula in its frantic bid to pose military threat to the DPRK. But never has it gone as desperate as now as it plans to stage the joint military drills with the introduction of the two nuclear carrier task forces.
This proves that the U.S. and the puppet warmonger’s ambition for provocation of a war against the DPRK has reached the zenith, a dangerous military act of pushing the acute situation on the Korean peninsula to the worst point of explosion, the statement said, adding:
Now that the aggressors and provokers are watching for an opportunity to invade the DPRK, regarding it as a thorn in the flesh, it is quite natural for the DPRK to bolster the nuclear sword for justice to defend the destiny of the country and the nation and the life of its people. No one can find fault with this as it is an extremely just option for self-defense.
The U.S. is trying to threaten and blackmail the DPRK with the nuclear carrier but the U.S.-style bluffing can never work on the DPRK and the DPRK will remain undeterred even though more nuclear strategic assets than the two nuclear carrier task forces are brought into.
The U.S. must clearly understand that its frantic moves of holding joint military drill against the DPRK with the introduction of nuclear carrier strike groups will only make our nuclear weapons target the heart of the enemies.
The army and people of the DPRK are full of the will to make the U.S., which have committed untold crimes against the Korean nation decade after decade, suffer deadly retaliatory strikes bitter defeat.

Time and victory belong to the DPRK holding the nuclear sword of justice.

THAAD Deployment Will Incur Punishment by Nation:

NPCK Spokesman
A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) issued a statement Saturday over the fact that the south Korean ruling quarters take irresolute attitude toward the issue of THAAD deployment.
Noting that the struggle of people from all walks of life demanding the cancellation of THAAD deployment is now getting intensified in south Korea, the statement said:
However, the "Liberal Korea Party" and other conservative groups and political philistines assert that the withdrawal of THAAD may undermine the south Korea-U.S. alliance and cause "division of public opinion", and the new south Korean authorities are taking an ambivalent approach to the public demand for the withdrawal of THAAD under such pretexts as "prudent solution" and "procedures of approval by the National Assembly".
To deploy THAAD or to withdraw it would serve as a cornerstone discerning the acts of sycophancy toward outsiders from the stand of prioritizing the nation, and there should be no compromise here, the statement said, clarifying the following principled stand:
1. THAAD deployment is a traitorous act of leaving the land of south Korea as the eternal advanced military base for the U.S. realization of strategy for world domination.
The south Korean authorities have to make its stand clear, well aware that the deployment is a senseless and traitorous act of drawing water to the U.S. mill for a nuclear war and providing it with a foothold for aggression. 

2. The deployment is a thrice-cursed act of treachery that would reduce the Korean peninsula into a theatre for nuclear war of big powers and invite unprecedentedly terrible disaster.
If the south Korean authorities approves the deployment to toe the U.S. line, it will be recorded as a treachery putting the "Ulsa (1905) five traitors" into the shade.
The south Korean authorities have to make a bold decision of withdrawing THAAD without delay, mindful that the nation is seriously watching them.
3. The deployment constitutes a crime against the nation as it is aimed to remove the nuclear sword of justice that would guarantee the dignity, security and eternal prosperity of the nation, with the help of aggressors.
The south Korean authorities should bear deep in mind the fact that the act of the conservative group to get rid of the nuclear treasured sword of justice by introducing THAAD is just a foolish and traitorous deed.
THAAD deployment is one of the worst evils done by the Park Geun Hye group and its withdrawal is a strong demand of the candlelight demonstrators and the irreversible trend of the times.

Anyone who allows the U.S. THAAD deployment for aggression would be forsaken and sternly punished by the nation just like the group of conservatives.

Kim Jong Un Guides Test-fire of Ballistic Rocket Based on Precision Guidance System

Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Unguided a test-fireof ballistic rocket equipped with precision guidance system.
At a launching site, he looked round a caterpillar self-propelled launching pad vehicle and a ballistic rocket based on precision guidance system.
He learned in detail about the tactical and technical specifications of the rocket and expressed satisfaction over the fact that its preparatory process before launching was further automated than the preceding Hwasong serial rockets to complete the system for markedly reducing the launching time so as to rapidly contain the enemies' armed provocations.
After being reported about its test-fire program at the command post, he ordered the launch of ballistic rocket.
The test was conducted in the way of medium range firing for minute remote observation to the last-stage guidance of warhead. It is aimed to verify the technical indices of new-type precision guided ballistic rocket capable of making ultra-precision strike on the enemies' objects at any area and examine the reliability of caterpillar self-propelled launching pad vehicle, newly designed to operate under various battle conditions.
The ballistic rocket flew toward the east sky where the day was breaking and correctly hit a designated target point with deviation of seven meters after flying at the medium range.
The test-fire verified the flight stability of ballistic rocket loaded with fin-controlled warhead in the active flying section and reconfirmed the accuracy of velocity correction and attitude stabilization system by a small heat jetengine in middle flying section.
It also verified the accuracy of ultra-precision guidance in the re-entry section by more precise late-stage guidance system and fully confirmed the running features in different geographical conditions of newly-developed caterpillar self-propelled launching pad vehicle and features of its automated launching preparation process.
Seeing the successful test-fire of ballistic rocket, he said that the rocket, which appeared for the first time at the square of military parade marking the Day of the Sun, seems to be sharp shooter's arms of precision hitting a target and such accurate hit would dig up eyes of the enemies. Our Party highly appreciates this success, he said, adding: The national defence science research field makingsteady victorious advance under the deep care and direct guidance of our Party is now ready to apply world-level ultra-modern military science and technologies in the Korean way as it wishes.
Whenever news of our recent valuable victory is broadcast, the Yankees would be very much worried and the gangsters of the south Korean puppet army would get dispirited more and more, he said.
He stressed the need to continue developing more powerful strategic weapons on the basis of the present success.
The national defence research field should clearly show the might of our self-reliant defence industry in a multi-phased and successive way under the timetable and road map worked out by the Party, he said, expressing belief that it would make greater leaping progress in the present stamina so as to send bigger "package of gifts" to the Yankees.

Accompanying him were Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Rak Gyom, Kim Jong Sik, Jang Chang Ha, Jong Sung Il and Jon Il Ho.

S. Korean Conservatives Slammed for Checking Repair of North-South Relations

A spokesman of the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation released a statement on Thursday denouncing the desperate moves of the south Korean conservatives to obstruct the mending of the north-south relations.
The statement said:
Jong U Thaek, floor leader from the "Liberal Korea Party", Hong Jun Phyo who lost the "presidential" race and other die-hard conservatives spout a load of rubbish every day, asserting that the regime should face up to the essence of the north's stance and there should be no dialogue with it unless it abandons its nuclear and missile programs.
Conservative media including Chosun Ilbo and Dong-A Ilbo are noisily talking that it is a wild dream to repair the south-north ties through dialogue and that the north might take advantage of it for intensifying nuclear weaponization and that the "government" must send the north a strong message.
Such hideous moves against the nation are chilling the growing expectation and desire of all Koreans for improved north-south relations and national reunification and stoking the north-south confrontation.
Today to mend the north-south relations has become a crucial issue decisive of whether to pave the path for peace, stability and prosperity on the Korean peninsula to invite disaster of confrontation and nuclear war. Repairing the north-south ties is just what all Koreans desire most, before being a demand of certain authorities and factions.
The group of conservatives in south Korea has gone so ridiculous and foolish as to work hard to put a brake on the improvement of the north-south relations, saying this or that about the crucial issue of the nation.
Such desperate moves are just a revelation of the conservatives' uneasiness that they might face ruin after totally losing their position if the north-south relations are mended to push their confrontation policy to a real flop, now that they are in the grip of extreme crisis due to the impeachment of Park Geun Hye and their defeat in the "presidential" election.
The improvement of the north-south relations is an irresistible trend of the times and the group of conservatives should awake from the wild dream.

Their persistent moves to check the repair of the north-south relations against the desire of all Koreans and the trend of the times will only precipitate their miserable end as dregs of history.

KPA General Staff Spokesman Hits out at S. Korean Forces' Reckless Military Provocation

 The south Korean puppet forces made another armed provocation in the area along the Military Demarcation Line. A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on May 25 in this regard:
The MDL area is the most acute hots pot where huge troops of both sides constantly level their guns at each other.
At around 16:00 on May 23, watching a flock of birds flying in the sky above the forefront areas in Cholwon, Kangwon Province, the south Korean puppet forces opened warning broadcasting and fired more than 450 machine gun bullets into the DPRK side, claiming they spotted "unidentified flying objects crossing the MDL".
They, caught by mental derangement, blame a "north's mine" for a suspicious explosion in the MDL area, question a "north's torpedo" for the sinking of their own warship and claim a flock of birds flying into the south as a "drone from the north" and even a privy door as a "wreckage of the north's drone" and a thermos flask shell as a "shell of multiple rocket launch system of the north".
The recent military provocation is a stopgap measure to check the war-weariness sweeping the puppet army in the face of the rapidly developing nuclear and ballistic rocket technology of the DPRK.
No matter how loudly the south Korean puppet warmongers get vociferous about the sophistically story about "southward flying of UFO", no one will believe it.
Instead, it will bring them bitter derision together with dirty disgrace as a criminal with habitual concoction of lies and misinformation.
The KPA is closely following the new confrontation hysteria of the provocateurs getting all the more reckless.



Kim Jong Un Watches Test of New-type Anti-Aircraft Guided Weapon System

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), watched the test of new-type anti-aircraft guided weapon system organized by the Academy of National Defence Science.
The respected Supreme Leader was told about the test program for new weapon system at the observation post before ordering the start of its test-fire.
Watching the successful test, he said ardently:
Seeing such a perfect new-type anti-aircraft guided weapon system, I miss the General more a lot. That weapon system is a posthumous one the development of which had been guided by him with much effort since the start. The General would have been very glad to see this perfect weapon system as he had put his heart and soul into the work to bolster up the state anti-aircraft capability until the last moments of his life.
He told KPA commanding officers and officials of the academy that the weapon system's efficiency to detect and track targets has remarkably improved and its hitting accuracy has also increased, compared with those of last year. Some defects in the weapon system, discovered last year, were perfectly overcome to stand the test, he said, adding: This weapon system, whose operation capability has been thoroughly verified, should be mass-produced to deploy in all over the country like forests so as to completely spoil the enemy's wild dream to command the air, boasting of air supremacy and weapon almighty.
He set forth highly important tasks for the strategy for development of modern anti-aircraft guided weapon system of Korean style.


Accompanying him were Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, O Kum Chol, Kim Kwang Hyok, Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Jong Sik and Jong Sung Il.

Japan Urged to Fulfill Legal and Moral Duty for Its Past Crimes

A spokesman for the Korean Committee on Measures for the Sexual Slavery for Japanese Army and Drafting Victims Saturday issued a statement in denunciation of the Japanese government's "document of refutation".
The UN Committee against Torture early in May released a report calling for re-examination of the "agreement" between Japan and south Korea over the issue of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army.
Terming the victims of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army victims of the sexual slavery system in the whole period of the Second World War, the report said the Japan-south Korea "agreement" on the issue signed in late 2015 is insufficient for reinstating the victims.
The Japanese government strongly defied it and came out with a "document of refutation".
The Japanese government protested against the UN Committee against Torture's labeling the "comfort women" for the Japanese army as sexual slaves and asserted the "agreement" was the final and irreversible one.
Noting that the government of Japan slandered the report of the international body fairly reflecting the world public opinion and justified and beautified its past crimes, the statement criticizes this as a shameless distortion of history, cruel insult to the victims and grave challenge to the world community.
Appreciation and judge on the crimes cannot be made by criminals, it says, and goes on:
Criminals should reflect themselves according to the punishment by justice and legislation and have duty to be responsible for them.
The Japanese authorities should clearly understand that their


reckless distortion of history and evasion of responsibility for the past crimes are improper acts of self-destruction and opt to fulfill their legal and moral duty for the crimes with sincerity, though belatedly.

Japanese Regime Should Not Go Impudent

 Japan, hell-bent on antagonizing the DPRK, is going impudent over the operation of its liner Mangyongbong.
The chief Cabinet secretary of Japan said it would heed the impact of the operation of Mangyongbongon the efforts of other countries for tackling the issue of nuclear and rocket programs of Pyongyang.
And the foreign minister imprudently asserted that Japan expects Russia to take a responsible approach to settling the Korean issue.
This is just a manifestation of the Japanese reactionaries' inveterate hostile policy toward the DPRK.
Japan is not entitled to say this or that about the liner.
The liner is just an international tourist ship which contributes to promoting the economic ties and humanitarian exchange under an agreement between the DPRK and Russia.
Japan has put an embargo on the liner for more than one decade, blocking the sea route of Koreans in Japan for visiting the homeland. Not content with this human rights abuse, it is faulting even regular economic exchange and visits between countries, revealing once again the hideous nature of its policy hostile to the DPRK.
What dignitaries of Japan uttered to link the bilateral cooperation between the DPRK and Russia with a military purpose is just sophism to justify its policy hostile to the DPRK.
Since the end of the Second World War, Japan has resorted to undisguised political and economic blockade and military moves against the DPRK in a sinister bid to realize the wild ambition for the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere." This only drew criticism and rejection by the international community.
In 2003 when the DPRK remained a non-nuclear state, Japan hatched a plot to justify its moves against the DPRK and the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) by branding the liner as a drug-smuggling boat.

The Japanese regime is justifying its policy hostile to the DPRK, terming the steps taken by it for bolstering its military muscle to tackle the US imperialists' nuclear blackmail a "threat" to Japan and the world.
The recent accusation of the Japanese reactionaries against the liner is just part of the smear campaign.
It is their purpose to suffocate the DPRK through complete economic blockade and secure a favourable opportunity for launching re invasion.
Japan is, indeed, the sworn enemy of the Korean people as it is seized with inveterate hostility toward the DPRK.

Such mean act of Japan can never stun the DPRK. Japan had better not run riot, refraining from such narrow-minded behaviour.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Refutes U.S. Act of Faulting DPRK's Test Launch of Strategic Missile

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday over the fact that the U.S. and its followers are faulting the DPRK's test-launch of strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2:
The officials in the field of national defence science and technology and the workers in the munitions field of the DPRK successfully carried out the test-launch of ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2 amid continued measures for bolstering the nuclear force of the country.
As reported, the recent launch was aimed to finally confirm the technical specifications of the overall weaponry system of Pukguksong-2 series and fully examine their adaptability to various combat conditions before their deployment for action.
This is part of the normal process for bolstering the military capabilities for self-defence and a process that has to be gone through for deployment.
But the U.S. and its followers again published a UN Security Council press statement peppered with such rhetoric as "sanctions" and "denunciation".
We flatly reject the press statement taking the advantages of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK.
Nothing favorable can be expected from the U.S. and its followers obsessed by inveterate repugnancy and hostility toward the DPRK. But it is absolutely ridiculous to see them finding fault with the DPRK's every measure for self-defence.
The DPRK substantially displayed the capabilities for mounting a nuclear attack at Hawaii housing the U.S. pacific forces command and the Pacific operational theatre including Alaska, and has built full capabilities for attacking the U.S. mainland, the stronghold of aggression.

The U.S. and its followers' despicable act of taking issue with the DPRK's measures for bolstering nuclear force will only result in increasing our hostility to them and furthering the efforts to diversify and modernize our own nuclear force.

Kim Jong Un Supervises Test-fire of Ballistic Missile

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, supervised a test-fire of ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2.
The test-fire of Pukguksong-2 was aimed to finally verify all the technical indexes of the weapon system and thoroughly examine its adaptability under various battle conditions, before its deployment at military units for action.
The Supreme Leader issued an order to launch the missile at the observation post.
Together with officials, he analyzed the results of the test-launch and expressed his great satisfaction over them, saying it is perfect.
Saying with pride that the missile's hitting accuracy is very high and Pukguksong-2 is a successful strategic weapon, he approved the deployment of this weapon system for action.
Now that its tactical and technical data met the requirements of the Party, this type of missile should be rapidly mass-produced in a serial way to arm the KPA Strategic Force, he said.
He set forth the strategic tasks for bolstering up the country's nuclear force.
He expressed belief that the national defence scientists and workers at the munitions factories intensely loyal to the WPK would produce better and more Juche weapons, nuclear offensive means of Korean style.
He had a photo taken with all the national defence scientists, technicians, workers and officials who carried out the successful test-launch.

Accompanying him were Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Jong Sik, Jong Sung Il, Yu Jin, Jo Yong Won and other senior officials of the C.C., WPK and General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the KPA Strategic Force.

FM SPOKESMAN HITS BEHAVIOUR OF U.S. AND ITS VASSAL FORCES

The U.S. is trying hard to create international atmosphere for sanctions against the DPRK over the test-fire of its ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.
What is ridiculous is that the U.S. and its vassal forces advertise that more than 20 countries and international bodies denounced the launch of rocket Hwasong-12, claiming that their anti-DPRK moves were enjoying international support.
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Friday branded such behaviour as a cynical ploy of making profound confusing of right and wrong.
The statement said:
Now several times more countries than stated by the hostile forces oppose the U.S. hostile policy and its frantic joint military drills, nuclear threats and military adventurous moves which have aggravated the situation in the Korean peninsula and the region and compelled the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear force.
At a recent UN Security Council emergency meeting, the U.S. representative complained that some countries mislead the public opinion, contending that the U.S. threatens North Korea. This shows the position of the U.S. floundering in a dilemma.
No matter how hard the U.S. may try, it can never cover up its criminal nature as aggressor and provocateur disturbing peace and security in the region and the rest of the world.
When lies and fabrications did not work on the international community desirous of independence and justice, some maniacs of the Trump administration forced other countries to make decision for supporting north Korea or the U.S. They have behaved rudely, reigning over the UN, threatening that the U.S. would impose strict sanctions upon any country, organization or individual and take issue with any international body, when they support north Korea.

If such high-handed and arbitrary practices are allowed in the international arena, neither independent development of sovereign.

Throwing Overboard Pro-U.S. and Pro-Conservative Forces Called for

A spokesman of the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation issued a statement Thursday, 37 years since the Kwangju popular uprising in south Korea.
The uprising was a popular armed uprising and a resistance for democracy against the U.S. and fascism in which the people stood against tyrannical forces in demand of independence and democracy of society and Korea's reunification against the colonial military fascist dictatorship by the U.S. and its stooges, the statement said, and went on:
It is the unanimous wish of the Kwangju up risers to end the U.S. imperialists' colonial rule that has lasted century after century and throw overboard the pro-U.S. traitorous forces.
The south Koreans from all walks of life should wage courageous actions to eliminate the group of pro-U.S. fascists keen on sycophancy, treachery, dictatorship and murder with the same valiant fighting spirit with which they sentenced the Park Geun Hye group of traitors to shameful ruin by holding high the candlelight of justice.
Murderers like traitor Chun Doo Hwan keen on covering up the truth of Kwangju massacre and prolonging their dirty remaining days have to be hanged, being judged by the people, and the remnants of Park Geun Hye making last-ditch efforts to prevent the wheel of history from rolling toward independence, democracy and reunification have to be definitely thrown overboard.
Unless the U.S. colonial domination and rule are put to an end, the south Koreans' misfortune and pain will further and the desire wished by the Kwangju resistance fighters can never come true.
The south Koreans should vigorously turn out in the nationwide sacred war to drive the U.S. imperialist aggressors out of south Korea and carve out their own destiny with their own efforts under the uplifted banner of independence against the U.S.
South Koreans of all social standings including workers, peasants, youths and students have to hold higher the banner of independence, democracy and reunification that was held by the Kwangju resistance fighters and wage an unflinching struggle for independence against the U.S. and conservatives.

Kim Jong Un Has Photo Session with Developers of Hwasong-12

Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Uninvited developers of the ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 to the building of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and had a photo session with them.
When he appeared in front of the WPK Central Committee building, all those present enthusiastically welcomed him, expressing their deep gratitude to him.
He warmly congratulated soldiers for national defense who made a significant contribution to demonstrating the might of the self-reliant defence industry of Juche Korea which emerged a full-fledged nuclear power in the East and a leading rocket power in Asia.
He had a photo session with the officials and scientists and technicians in the rocket research field, expressing belief that they would develop and produce in larger quantity the powerful Juche weapons and cutting-edge military hardware to further consolidate the DPRK as an invincible socialist fortress, which any formidable enemy cannot dare to provoke, and reliably ensure the heroic grand advance for implementing the decision of the Seventh WPK Congress with nuclear sword of Songun.

Taking part in the photo session were Ri Man Gon, Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Jong Sik, Jong Sung Il and Jang Chang Ha.

Those Faulting DPRK's Measure for Self-Defence Will Not Be Pardoned: KAPPC


A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee (KAPPC) in a statement Thursday said the big success in the test-fire of ground-to-ground medium to long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 was a great national event that declared the birth of another perfect weaponry system, "Juche weapon" which would bring about the final victory after putting an end to the decades-long stand-off with the U.S. imperialists.
Charging that the U.S. and other hostile forces misrepresent the nature of the test-fire for preserving peace and its historic meaning, describing it as a "serious challenge to world peace and stability" and "violation", the statement went on to say:
What is all the more astonishing is that the new authorities of south Korea convened an emergency "state security council" with even remnants of the Park Geun Hye group involved soon after the news about the rocket test-fire by the DPRK, where they published a "protest statement", calling it "violation of the UN resolution", "serious challenge" and "test on the new government".
The DPRK's measure for bolstering its capabilities for self-defence is a crucial issue on which hinges the dignity and sovereignty of the country and the destiny of the nation. Such step can neither be stopped nor slowed down with the replacement of administration in the U.S. and the emergence of "new regime" in south Korea.
Explicitly speaking, the DPRK's retaliatory nuclear strike capabilities for self-defense aimed to reliably defend the peace in the Korean peninsula and the region will increase at higher pace as long as the U.S. escalates its hostile policy toward the DPRK and nuclear war threat.
The U.S. is threatening and blackmailing the DPRK, talking about "pressure", but the American-style bluffing by which it reduces only non-nuclear states and weak nations into the plaything of its military action can never work on the DPRK.
The south Korean authorities have to draw a serious lesson from the wretched fate of traitor Park Geun Hye, who met a miserable end while vociferating about "nuclear threat from the north" and going keen on hurting the fellow countrymen with the help of outsiders that only seek to inflict nuclear disaster on the nation.

Those who challenge the dignity and social system of the DPRK, faulting its legitimate step for bolstering the nuclear force for self-defence, should not expect any mercy.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Rejects Press Statement of UNSC


A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Tuesday gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA as regards the successful test-fire of ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12:
The successful test-fire of Hwasong-12 is of great and special significance in ensuring peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region, and it is the greatest victory of the Korean people.
As part of the routine work to raise the nuclear capability to the maximum and thus increase the military capability for self-defence, the test-fire was conducted at the highest angle in consideration of neighbouring countries' security. It was aimed at verifying the tactical and technical specifications of newly-developed ballistic rocket capable of carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead.
However, some countries described this legitimate exercise of right to self-defence as "violation" and "threat" and the UNSC issued a press statement pulling up the DPRK over the ballistic rocket launch.
The DPRK categorically and totally rejects the UNSC's press statement which called into question its bolstering of nuclear deterrence for self-defence, pursuant to the U.S. vicious anti-DPRK policy.
Just in recent one week the U.S. conducted two test-fires of intercontinental ballistic missiles, but the UNSC never mentioned them.
The right to self-defence is the first criterion of sovereignty. Therefore, accusation against it is an undisguised encroachment upon sovereignty and an act of rude interference in internal affairs.
Should the U.S. dare make a military provocation against our State, we will readily counter it.
The most perfect weapon systems in the world will never be the eternal exclusive property of the U.S., and the day when the DPRK uses corresponding retaliatory means is sure to come.

Then, the U.S. will come to see for itself whether the ballistic rockets of the DPRK pose actual threat to it or not.

U.S. Is to Blame for Consequences of Anti-DPRK Sanctions: Chief of Law Institute

The chief of the Law Institute of the DPRK Institute of International Studies released a statement on Monday over the fact that the Trump administration of the U.S. seeks to slap new sanctions on the DPRK, pursuant to its policy called "maximum pressure and engagement".
On May 4, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a new anti-DPRK Sanctions Act, the keynote of which is to ratchet up sanctions on the DPRK to the maximum and impose sanctions on the foreign businesses, organizations and individuals that have business deals with it and employ its workers.
Meanwhile, the U.S. is seeking unprecedented sanctions, pressure and diplomatic blockade against the DPRK by pressurizing and blackmailing other countries and their businesses and individuals not to have normal diplomatic and economic and trade relations with the DPRK under the "sanctions resolution" of the UN Security Council.
The statement denounces this as an unethical crime violating all the principles of international law including the UN Charter as it seeks the most vicious aim of deteriorating the economy of the DPRK and the people's living under the pretext of "nuclear non-proliferation".
Such sanctions have not just begun today. It is a wanton violation of international law and an impudent mockery of the international community that the U.S. is persisting in the moves to justify sanctions against a sovereign state by its domestic law.
What is more serious is that the U.S. seeks to realize its world hegemonic ambition under the pretext of such sanctions, the statement points out, adding:
Those countries under naval threats and pressure from the U.S. to break ties with the DPRK and stop their economic and trade activities with it are largely at strategic rivalry with the U.S. or located at vantage points of geopolitical importance. Most of them have already been exposed to various forms of sanctions by the U.S.
The facts go to prove that the Trump administration is seeking to kill three birds with one stone: The U.S. scheme is to stifle the DPRK, a stumbling block in implementing its strategy for world hegemony, by citing the DPRK's exercise of independent rights as "threat" and "provocation" to global peace and security and to tame the countries disobedient to it and put the strategic bases under its control.
After all, the passage of the illegal Anti-DPRK Sanctions Act shows that such elementary principles and institutional mechanisms on international relations as respect for sovereignty, non-interference and peaceful settlement of a dispute have almost disappeared.
The present situation evidently proves that the U.S. has already gone beyond the pale in arrogance and shamelessness to gratify its hegemonic ambition and that it is impossible to expect any peace and stability in the earth when such rude action is allowed.
To remain vigilant against the U.S. sanctions and pressure on the DPRK and struggle against them is the way for defending the sovereignty of each country and ensuring global peace and security.
The U.S. should not test the DPRK's perseverance any longer.
Explicitly speaking, the DPRK's nuclear deterrence for self-defence and preemptive strike capability are aimed at the U.S. trying to antagonize, isolate and stifle it. Accordingly, they can never be any political or economic bargaining chip and they will never be abandoned though the U.S. ratchets up the sanctions and pressure to the utmost.
If the Trump administration truly wants to adopt a new policy towards the DPRK, drawing a lesson from the preceding administration's failure, it should go for change of the Armistice Agreement between the DPRK and U.S. into a peace accord and total removal of the hostile relations so as to help ensure lasting peace of the Korean peninsula and furthermore global peace and security.

If it persists in anti-DPRK sanctions without understanding its rival, the administration will have to take full responsibility for the ensuing catastrophic consequences.

SOLIDARITY VISIT TO THE SYRIAN EMBASSY IN ABUJA, NIGERIA



The National Chairman, Nigerian National Committee on the Study of Juche Idea, Prof. Alhassan Mamman Muhammad, paid a solidarity and courtesy visit to the embassy of Syria, officially known as the Syrian Arab Republic on Monday May 8th 2017.
Syria's population, Sunni Arabs comprise 65 per cent, Kurds and Christians constitute ten per cent each. Alawite sect makes up about ten per cent. Druze, Shia, Ismailis and others make up the remainder.
Foreign backing and open intervention have played a large role in Syria's war. An international coalition led by the United States and her so-called allies comprising Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and several Arab states staunchly support these terrorists in Syria that the West prefer to call Syrian rebels.
Turkey shares about nine hundred kilometres of border with Syria. Through this shared border, terrorist all over the world poured into Syria. These terrorists are trained in Turkey with funding from United States and allied Sunni Arab states, particularly, Saudi Arabia.
As the Syrian conflict enters its seventh year, more than 465,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, more than a million injured and over 12 million Syrians - half the country's pre-war population - have been displaced from their homes.
These terrorists comprise of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) which seized control of the area surrounding Aleppo and parts of southern Syria. Over time, some factions of the Syrian terrorists split from their original position to pursue an Islamist vision for Syria, joining groups such as al-Nusra Front and ISIL.
ISIL and rebel groups as well as the United States and her so-called allies have been accused of severe human rights violations and of many massacres.

Prof. Alhassan Mamman Muhammad urged the United Nations to lived up to its mandate rained-in United States as a state sponsor of terror, He further urged Turkey to stop its support, provision of training ground, open access to Syria terrorists from its shared border with Syria and its violation of Syrian territorial sovereignty by attacking Kurds in Syria. He also called for United States and Saudi Arabia to be tried for war crimes for their role in fuelling and sustaining the Syrian crises.






H.E. Kim Jong Un Visits Rangnang Disabled Soldiers' Essential Plastic Goods Factory

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, gave field guidance to the Rangnang Disabled Soldiers' Essential Plastic Goods Factory.
Shaking hands with its officials, he kindly asked them about the health of all the disabled soldiers and their troubles. He said that he came to the factory to encourage the disabled soldiers reliably serving at new posts for improving the people's standard of living with patriotism they displayed during military service.
After being briefed on the factory before a map showing its panoramic view, he went round a room for the education in the revolutionary history and a room dedicated to the history of the factory.
He noted that the factory, which was founded as a small unit producing simple ironware with some equipment in October 1970 when the Fifth Congress of the WPK was held, is stepping up production in the van of the whole country. This would have been unthinkable without the meticulous guidance and solicitude of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, he added.
He kept his eyes for a long time to a photo showing the benevolent image of Kim Jong Il seeing goods at the factory in October 2011, the last period of his life.
Going round various places of the factory, he learned in detail about its production.
Seeing goods one by one, he said that there are varieties of goods and they were made to be useful, adding that the disabled soldiers are excellent in working style.
The Rangnang Disabled Soldiers' Essential Plastic Goods Factory is a model factory in equipment management, he noted, instructing officials to widely introduce the factory to the whole country and make other factories to learn from it.
He went round newly-built welfare service facilities and sci-tech knowledge dissemination room.
He said that welfare service facilities consisting of public bath, barbers, exercise and treatment recovery room were designed and built well.
Noting he feels they were built with determination, he said with pleasure that the employees of the factory would be very glad at them.
He said that there is nothing to spare for the disabled soldiers, treasure of the country, adding officials should take good care of their life so that they work well in good health. He stressed that all the Party organizations should regard it as their duty and mission to take meticulous care of the disabled soldiers' life so that they do not feel slight troubles and inconvenience.
Going round the factory, he could know again that the disabled soldiers are invariably taking the road of struggle for the country and the people as they did during their military service, in hearty response to the intention of the Party that the disabled soldiers should keep the flower of revolution in bloom, he said. He had a photo session with them.

He was accompanied by Pak Pong Ju, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the C.C., WPK, vice-chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and premier of the Cabinet, Ri Ju O, vice-premier of the Cabinet, An Jong Su, department director of the C.C., WPK, and Jo Yong Won, vice department director of the C.C., WPK.

KCNA Issues Report on Epochal Advance in Building Socialist Power

The Korean Central News Agency released a report on Monday on the epochal advance made in the drive for building a socialist power during the past one year since the Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea.
The report says:
The past one year proved once again the validity of the strategic line set forth at the Seventh Congress of the WPK and the truth that Korean-style socialism is invincible.
The Korean army and people have achieved miraculous successes in the drive for building a socialist power during the past one year.
The political and ideological position of the Korean revolution was firmly consolidated through the struggle for modelling the whole society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism which the Party Congress set forth, and the loyalty of the Korean army and people to hold the Party and the leader was fully displayed.
A statue of leader Kim Jong Il was erected in Samjiyon County, Ryanggang Province.
Mosaics depicting the portraits of smiling President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and their images were erected at many units across the country and the Korean Revolution Museum was successfully remodelled.
The military might of the DPRK with the nuclear force as a pivot was bolstered up in every way under the outstanding Songun guidance of respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
Test-fires of ground to ground medium-and-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-10, new strategic weapon, and of strategic submarine ballistic missile successfully took place. Preparations for the test-fire of inter-continental ballistic rocket reached the final stage. These eye-opening events witnessed one after another in bolstering up the national defence capabilities.
The general offensive to hasten the building of an economic power was dynamically waged and the 200-day campaign of loyalty to make a breakthrough in carrying out the five-year strategy for national economic development was declared.
Manpower and material and technical potentials of the country were all mobilized and concentrated to recover the unprecedentedly flood-hit northern parts of North Hamgyong Province and vast targets were hit on each front of the 200-day campaign.
Service personnel and builders built Ryomyong Street in a matter of just one year.
Scientists and technicians succeeded in the ground jet test of new type high-thrust engine for a geo-stationary satellite carrier rocket.
In the field of science and technology lots of scientific and technological problems were solved including the establishment of Korean-style unmanned model production system and completion of the technology of producing electrode for UHP electric arc furnace.
Successes were also achieved in the fields of metal, chemistry, agriculture, light industry, fishery, construction, education and public health.

The proud reality of the DPRK dashing ahead towards the eminence of a powerful socialist country proved in practice the iron-willed truth that nobody can block the advance of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Korean people who are turning out in a general do-or-die campaign.

Sordid Nature of S. Korean Conservatives' "Security" Racket Disclosed

The National Reunification Institute issued an indictment Thursday to disclose the sordid nature of the "security" racket and the row about "forces following the north" kicked up by the south Korean group of conservatives to prolong their remaining days and realize the ambition to come to power again.
Clarifying that the "security" racket by the south Korean group of conservatives is a farce to seize and maintain power, the indictment said:
Whenever election came at hand in south Korea, there were created "security unrest."
"Ancestor of conservatives" Syngman-Rhee was the first player of the "security" farce who ignited the war of aggression against the north while crying out for "unification by prevailing over communism" in order to tide over the power crisis. Traitor Park Chung-Hee tried hard to stay in power for long through frantic "security" racket. The Chun Doo Hwan military junta proclaimed "Emergency Martial Law" across south Korea and carried out May 17 fascist violence while vociferating about "southward invasion by the north".
The group of conservatives kicked up "security" rackets at times of puppet presidential elections in order to let Roh Tae Woo, Kim Young Sam, Lee Hoe Chang and Park Geun Hye rise to power.
The racket of "nuclear and missile threats from the north" became the height of the "security" farce resorted by the south Korean group of conservatives.
The racket of "northward wind" and row about "followers of the north" waged by the group of conservatives have earned an ill fame as south Korean-version of "McCarthyism" from long ago.
Syngman-Rhee clique brutally suppressed and massacred his political rivals, charging them with "tolerating communism" and "spying." 
The Park Chung-Hee military fascist clique set it as a "state line" to persist in anti-communism and pursued heinous suppressible politics backed by intelligence. It eliminated anyone who was opposed to its stay in power by branding him or her as a "pro-communist element."
Traitor Chun Doo Hwan, in a sinister bid to realize his wild ambition for power, cruelly suppressed Kim Dae Jung branding him as the very one behind the Kwangju Popular Uprising and a "communist."
The conservative group fabricated the case of a letter of O Ik Je to help Lee Hoe Chang win "presidential" elections.
The "Saenuri Party"-led conservative group kicked up a conspiratorial racket over the minutes of the north-south summit in 2007 and ran the whole gamut of fraud and swindle by mobilizing the intelligence service to help traitor Park Geun Hye win the 18th-term "presidential" election in December 2012.
The conservative group, which has been driven to the tight corner rejected by the people, again makes desperate efforts to come back to power by winning in the forthcoming "presidential" election with the racket of "security" and row about "followers of the north", the indictment noted, and went on to say:
Gone are days never to return when they maintained the fascist power by the racket of "security" and row about "followers of the north".
It is proved by the miserable end of traitor Park Geun Hye who has been imprisoned after vociferating about "threats and provocations from the north".

The south Korean people from all walks of life should clearly see the sordid nature of the frantic confrontation rackets of the conservative group ahead of the "presidential" election and mete out a severe punishment to the group of traitors going against the trend of the times and desire of the nation.
