Pyongyang, August 17 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, guided the test-fire of new weapon again on Friday morning.
Juche shells were fired in the presence of the Supreme Leader.
The national defense scientists showed a perfect result in the test-fire, too, and helped cement bigger confidence in this weapon system.
He said that our reliable scientists in the field of the national defense science developed in the shortest span of time the major military striking means the Party planned recently and showed the mysterious and amazing success rates, adding with great satisfaction that one can imagine the level of development of the national defense science and technology and it vividly proved that the material and technological foundations for the national defense industry are being perfected at a high level.
Our party has strictly maintained the principles of self-reliance and Juche in national defence building, and recently set forth a strategic policy on the direction of the development of the Juche-oriented national defence building based on our own science, technology and strength to meet the needs of the developing situation, he said, stressing the need to keep channeling all-state efforts into, taking deep care of and rendering unreserved support to the sacred national defence building so as to reliably guarantee the sovereignty and security of the country and the happy future of the people.
He said it is our Party's goal of defence building to possess invincible military capabilities no one dare provoke and to keep bolstering them. He said that step-by-step objectives for implementing this goal have already been delivered as a policy task, calling on the fields of the national defence scientific research and the munitions industry to make all-out efforts to perfectly uphold the Party's line on national defence building with loyalty under the slogan "leap higher and faster".
He said everyone should remember that it is the Party's core plan and fixed will for defence building to possess such a powerful force strong enough to discourage any forces from daring to provoke us and to leave all others vulnerable to our Juche weapons of absolute power even though there comes the situation where physical strengths clash with each other.
He appealed to the fields of national defence scientific research and the munitions industry to cherish unchanged loyalty for the Party and the revolution and make redoubled efforts for the sacred activities for increasing the national defence capabilities in every way.
Accompanying him were the leading officials of the Party Central Committee and the field of national defence science to guide the test-fire. -0-
