The Defence Development Exhibition Self-Defence 2021 closed after running on for ten days. It was opened on October 11 to mark the 76th founding anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea.

A closing ceremony took place on Friday.

Present there were Pak Jong Chon, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau and secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, Yu Jin, department director of the Central Committee of the WPK, and leading officials, scientists and technicians in the fields of defence science research sector and the munitions industry.

Pak Jong Chon said in the closing ceremony that the exhibition intensively showed weapons prioritized by the WPK and thus further consolidated the DPRK’s position as a military power of self-defence capable of coping with any types of military threats and situations in an active and powerful way.

At the exhibition, the national defence science field and the working people of the munitions industry once again warmly felt great pride in and honour of having produced the weapons of the revolution with painstaking efforts, came up with new ideas and raised their strenuous spirit and emulation passion while sharing each other's advanced experience and technologies, he said, adding that this served as a valuable asset for more greatly flexing the country's military muscle and was a major achievement in the exhibition as well.

The WPK’s policy on national defence is a fair and just national policy that nobody can violate and the uninterrupted beefing up of the defence capability for the future is the invariable path that no force can hold in check, he said, stressing that the exhibition was a proud review of the development of the defence industry that brought about great change in the great era of Kim Jong Un and, at the same time, the start of a new forced march.

In the unstable situation in the vicinity of the Korean peninsula, resting on one's laurels and praising oneself are the worst taboo, he said, calling for attaining in the shortest possible time the goals of the strategy for national defence development set forth at the Eighth Party Congress with the current achievements as a springboard so as to make the military and technical strength of the country absolute and everlasting.
