Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), on Nov. 26 gave an order to promote the military ranks of leading officials and scientists in the defence scientific research field who strikingly demonstrated to the whole world the powerful strength of the DPRK's strategic force.

The order reads:

Our great unremitting cause of building the nuclear force for reliably protecting the dignity and sovereignty of the state and the people through all ages is the greatest and most important revolutionary cause, and its ultimate goal is to possess the world's most powerful strategic force, the absolute force unprecedented in the century.

Our reliable leading officials and scientists in the defence scientific research field, who strived in the indomitable spirit of fulfilling without condition our Party's plan for defence up-building, succeeded in developing and perfecting the new-type ICBM Hwasongpho-17, the world's strongest strategic weapon, and made a wonderful leap forward in the development of the technology of mounting nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles, thus fully demonstrating to the whole world the firm resolution, decisive executive ability, great potentials and the confident, ever-victorious future of our state advancing towards the goal of building the world's strongest army.

Highly appreciating, on behalf of the WPK and the DPRK government, the distinguished contribution of the leading officials and scientists who flawlessly completed the most powerful Juche-oriented strategic weapon of our own type with their boundless loyalty, patriotic devotion, extraordinary mental power and inexhaustible creativity, true to our Party's cause of building a strong army and thus more strikingly displayed the great might of the powerful and dignified nuclear power, I issue the following order to promote their military ranks.
