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.
