Pyongyang, February 15 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un , general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and president of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, supervised the evaluation test-fire of new-type surface-to-sea missile Padasuri-6 to be equipped by the navy on the morning of February 14.

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un was accompanied by Pak Jong Chon and Jo Chun Ryong, secretaries of the C.C., the WPK, Kim Jong Sik, vice department director of the C.C., the WPK, Army General Jang Chang Ha, general director of the DPRK Missile Administration, Admiral Kim Myong Sik, commander of the Navy of the Korean People's Army, Vice-Admiral Pak Kwang Sop, commander of the East Sea Fleet of the Navy, Vice-Admiral Pang Song Hwan, commander of the West Sea Fleet of the Navy, Rear Admiral Kim Yong Son, vice commander of the Navy, and directors of missile departments of the east and the west sea fleet commands.

The missiles flew over the East Sea for more than 1 400 seconds to hit the target boat.

He expressed great satisfaction over the results of the test-fire and made an important conclusion on the plan of reorganizing the combat formation of the coastal missile battalions of the east and the west sea fleets.

He set forth the ways for reliably defending the maritime border by deploying surface-to-sea missile forces in the forward area and strengthening them to the maximum and thoroughly containing and frustrating the adventurous attempt of the enemy navy.

Recalling the fact that the ROK puppets let various kinds of battleships intrude into the waters of the DPRK to seriously encroach upon its sovereignty under the pretext of control of fishing boats and ships of a third-country and maritime patrol while making desperate efforts to preserve "northern limit line", a ghost one without any ground in the light of international law or legal justification, he stressed the need for the DPRK to thoroughly defend the maritime sovereignty by force of arms and actions, not by any rhetoric, statement and public notice.

He gave important instructions to bolster up military preparedness particularly in the border waters north of Yonphyong Island and Paekryong Island frequently invaded by the enemies' warships including destroyers, escort ships and speedboats.

He said that it is not important how many lines exist in the West Sea of Korea and there is no need to thrash out the rights and wrongs. What is clear is that when the enemy intrudes into the maritime border recognized by us, we will regard it as an encroachment upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and an armed provocation against it, he affirmed.

Steadfast is the stand and will of the KPA to firmly defend the state sovereignty and security with its legitimate and rightful exercise of the right to self-defence by dint of strong military muscle, he said, setting forth military tasks for reliably defending the coastline and the maritime border of the country. -0-
