Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- 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 rate of hits is very accurate 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. -0-
