Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) -- Hwasong-12 rocket launched by the DPRK at dawn of August 29 hit the preset waters in the northern Pacific after flying over the Japanese archipelago.
A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea in a statement Thursday denounced the south Korean puppet forces for raising a hue and cry over the launch, as if a nuclear bomb was exploded in downtown Seoul.
According to the statement, the south Korean authorities are going busy, convening the presidium committee session of the "state security council" and making public a "denunciation statement".
At the instructions of the authorities to "demonstrate strong capabilities of punishment", the puppet forces hastily staged bomb dropping drills by F-15K fighter bombers and resorted to a foolish act of making to public the Hyonmu ballistic missile drilling ground, the statement said, and went on:
In the meantime, they threatened they would introduce nuclear strategic assets of the U.S. and refer the DPRK's ballistic rocket launch issue to the UN Security Council together with the U.S. and Japanese masters, while trumpeting about the "tightened alliance" with the U.S.
The recent ballistic rocket launch drill reminiscent of an actual war is the first step to a military operation in the Pacific conducted by the army of the DPRK and a meaningful prelude to containing Guam, an advance base of the U.S. for aggression, and it is just the beginning of the resolute countermeasures to the war drills staged by the U.S. and its stooges.
We will in the future, too, conduct ballistic rocket launching drill targeting the Pacific where the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces' bases are stationed and show the resolute stand of Juche Korea to the arrogant U.S. in action, not in words.
It should not be forgotten even a moment that whole south Korea can turn into ruins if saber-rattling is shown before the steel gun barrel of the powerful revolutionary Paektusan army.
The puppet forces should not run reckless, clearly understanding that their insensible acts in reliance on the U.S. which is unable to be responsible for its own fate will only accelerate their self-destruction. -0-
