Pyongyang, December 20 (KCNA) -- Kim Yo Jong, vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, issued the following press statement on Tuesday:
I am getting bored and tired of hearing the bark of the south Korean puppets who have the bad habit of finding fault with others.
Even in the end of the year, they continue to pull us up, not content with finding fault with us from the beginning of the year.
It seems to be an endemic disease in south Korea that all those always doubt about and slander everything done by us.
I have not cared about their slandering as I have become used to it, but I cannot but make a few words to reveal their unreasonable gossip as they are absorbed in speaking ill of us.
I have a strong urge to give a blow to those chattering, and I don't know what to say first.
Those who have tongue belittled our yesterday's report on an important test for developing a reconnaissance satellite.
Yesterday I watched a lot of so-called experts competitively saying words in a row. As always, they were like a kind of chattering sparrow.
Over the quality of the satellite photos, they were absorbed in expressing their own views all day long, telling that they are "inferior", "it is not useful as the earth observation satellite far from military satellite" and "it is not believed to be a real photo and there can be deception". Those so-called experts seem to have nothing to say without news that we give, and I am "concerned" that they can get salary properly there.
Have you ever thought that it was too inadequate and imprudent to judge our capabilities for developing a satellite and preparations for it with the two photos taken by the test-type panchromatic camera which we posted in the newspaper?
The so-called experts were so keen on finding fault with others that they could not but make such senseless words.
We definitely set up a test camera on the satellite test piece and conducted such necessary test as altitude control and in appropriate space flight environment and photography control command, reliability of ground control and operation of data transmission devices, data encryption processing technology, technique of synthesizing vertical and oblique photography data, and informed our people of the significant and satisfactory test results as they were.
Then, why do the south Korean puppets think that we made public the test results for them to see and do they really think that we have published the low-resolution photo to be bitterly criticized by someone?
It is the starting point of a wrong view and thinking of what they call experts in south Korea.
Someone, commenting that our announcement was a hasty one, let loose a sheer nonsense that we were probably "stimulated by the development of their first reconnaissance satellite".
Think in a rational way with common sense.
Who will install and test an expensive high-resolution camera for a single-shot test which takes no more than 830 seconds.
As far as I know, the National Aerospace Development Administration has set it as the main purpose of the test to check the control of the camera operation command with the main focus on oblique side photography, not on the vertical-down track, with a commercial camera adapted for the test and to receive and analyze images and various kinds of measurements at ground observation posts.
The publication fully showed the clear mode and results of the test. But the so-called experts only got wild to depreciate others, saying that "the date of the photo taken is unknown" and they are "still analyzing" it and that it "could be the deceptive farce" in an "inferior level" about our photos published, just to reveal their level of commenting and ability of thinking.
It is only when they have common sense and ground of argument to some extent to slander someone that their "people" would believe in.
I want to know if the "people" will be taken in by such nonsense and rubbish.
"Inferior level"? I have already seen their evil nature before hearing their malicious criticism.
I heard that they got very curious about the number of vehicles we fired, so I want to tell them the facts.
Two vehicles were fired from, the first known to have tested whether the ground control station track and receive the signals sent by the transmitter and the second to conduct the relevant test which has been already opened to public.
I think there's no more question.
I am wondering what those, who are now so desperate to depreciate our technical ability, would say to slander us when our military satellite is in operation anytime soon.
And of course, they will have absolutely nothing to say except that an unidentified flying object has entered orbit but nothing has been confirmed to perform its action as a satellite.
Something else that I am curious about is whether if they, together with their military hooligans, will say, as they have so often done, that it is just a "satellite-loaded" long-range missile meant to perfect the DPRK's development of its long-range missile technology.
And that is even after witnessing the test-fire of our ICBM just before.
A puppet expert even repeated the unreasonable words that a long-range missile and a satellite carrier rocket are similar in terms of their properties. Exactly so. Can you launch a satellite into orbit with a balloon, and not a carrier rocket?
If we were to develop an ICBM, we test-fire it undisguised, not as a "satellite carrier" spread by the south Korean puppets to the public.
I'm quite curious to see if the world actually believes any longer of their unpersuasive arguments that we fired a long-range missile on the pretext of a satellite to acquire the long-range missile development technology.
That is because I have never thought for a moment that there is a country that is foolish like the south Korean puppets.
The announced remarks of its military hooligans are more ironic.
That is because they announced that our satellite test-fire carried out the day before yesterday is an intermediate-range ballistic missile.
I would've thought that, as they have so often done, by their exclamations of "complete preparation for counteraction" and "close cooperation between the south Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities", they would be able to distinguish and analyze the test-fire simply from the signal frequency band transmitted from the projectile.
Have they ever announced anything in advance or proven the type of projectile or even the location of our test-fire properly from their "precision tracking" before?
I'm not quite sure if they would remember these; mistaking Ryongrim Dam with Muphyong-ri, saying a test-fire carried out beneath a reservoir is a launchpad around it, mixing up Anju City with Onchon County, etc.
How many times have they actually been frank with themselves? They always say they are "carrying out precision tracking after suspicion in advance" without having any knowledge of anything and cry out routine remarks such as "military secrecy", "opening up military information is not appropriate" and "preparing for complete counteraction" against "added provocation" from "close cooperation between the south Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities".
Does their "people" actually trust them?
The gangsters are so impudent and arrogant to make assertions every time as if they publish the results of the tests conducted by them.
As it can be seen in the photo and report, why should we fire the old missile for scrap without reason if it is not the test for the development of satellite?
Are they going to say again that the missiles are for "provocation"?
They have a lot of issues to depreciate our technical abilities other than the satellite.
ICBM is a part of them.
For several years, the puppet military gangsters and puppet experts have said that our ICBM's atmospheric re-entry has not been recognized and verified, just to comfort themselves. What a gratuitous advice.
I cannot understand why they are so anxious about the reliability of our weapon more than us.
To explain to them who have no common sense, we could not receive remote data of the control warhead until it hit a target if the technology for atmospheric re-entry was imperfect.
Despite my explanation, they will have a "doubt" about our reception.
And I can guess with what they would find fault.
It is clear that they will claim that the successful test of our ICBM can not be proved through high-angle launch but with real angle and that they will impair our strategic weaponry capability with such argument. I can clear up their doubt about it.
They will immediately recognize it in case we launch an ICBM in the way of real angle firing straight off.
I think that they would be well advised to halt their nonsense and think twice.
I recommend them that if they have a time to find fault with other's technical abilities, they had better save their crumbled face at the earliest date possible, not to be ridiculed that they have developed and are equipped with missiles with the range of tens of meters.
What did those of the puppet Ministry of Unification say viciously about our essential test for developing satellites?
They vociferated that "it is the clear violation of the resolutions of the UN Security Council and a grave provocation escalating the tension on the Korean peninsula and threatening peace and stability in the region and that they strongly denounce it", just as they said day and night like automatic answering machine.
Do they think that such foolish remarks can change the event that will happen in the near future?
It is really stupid.
They will make desperate efforts to impose additional sanctions on the DPRK, while clamoring about some kind of international cooperation. At this time when our right to existence and development is being threatened, how can we stop our advance for fear of sanctions that we have experienced abominably, not for the first time.
We make it clear that we will not remain a passive onlooker to any attempt to violate a sovereign state's legitimate right but exercise our bounden rights and retake them at the risk of our lives if necessary.
Moreover, the issue of developing military satellite is an urgent priority task directly related to the security of the DPRK before discussing the legitimate right of a sovereign state.
The puppet Ministry of Unification should be careful in talking.
As we have already mentioned, it would be more beneficial not to repeat the illegal "resolution", never recognized by us, but to get absorbed in the work to stabilize the current situation growing serious by irritating each other's feelings, far from dreaming over the pitiable "bold plan".
To put it flatly, they are not dogs. Then, why do they keep barking only to arouse our anger, without knowing that such deed can never settle any problem. I can not understand what kind of benefit they can get from such barking.
No matter how much sophism they may let loose, our people will never step back from the development of reconnaissance satellite, decided by our Party, at any price.
Look back at the latest events carefully.
We have done all what we are determined to do. -0-
