The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) , the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a statement denouncing the latest UN Security Council(UNSC) statement of the 22nd of May ;
   Recently the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) successfuly tested the strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2. This was a great advance for the DPRK. It is the DPRK's independent and sovereign right to test all kinds of self-defensive measures including the test of ballistic missiles. The test should also be seen in the context of increasing US pressure and threats against People's Korea including the dispatch of an aircraft carrier strike group.
 The UNSC have ignored all these facts and issued a statement denouncing the DPRK and calling for incresed sanctions. Really the UNSC is losing its authority and is becoming regarded as a bunch of windbags spouting lots of hot air. The UNSC is a puppet of the US imperialists.
  The DPRK does not need the permission of the UNSC or anyone else to test missiles . Nor does the UNSC have any valid authority to decided the legality of missile tests on the territory of a sovereign state.
 We support and indeed applaud the DPRK's just and correct rejection of this latest nonsense from the UNSC. The DPRK is correct to step up its nuclear deterrence.

Visit to the Juche People's Paradise to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG

                                               


A delegation of the Juche Idea Study Group of England and Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK  visited the Democratic People's Republic of Korea from the 11th of April to the 22nd of April to attend the celebrations of the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG  at the kind and generous invitation of the Korean Association of Social Scientists. Our delegation consisted of myself , Shaun Pickford the secretary general of the Juche Idea Study Group of England and Chairman of Staffordshire Korean Friendship Association  and David Munoz Organisation Secretary of the UK Korean Friendship Association.
   For me it was my 13th visit , for comrade Pickford his 7th visit and comrade Munoz's second visit .
Before we travelled to People's Korea there were all kinds of crazy reports of imminent war on the Korean peninsula and talk of a US aircraft strike carrier group heading towards the DPRK to mount  a pre-emptive strike on the DPRK . There were rumours of all flights been cancelled and of Pyongyang being evacuated. This proved false .Pyongyang was full of people both Koreans and foreigners , aircraft were flying and there was a calm , peaceful and almost dreamy atmosphere. No one we spoke to was worried or frightened by Trumps threats .No one cared a fig for what Trump was saying.Everyone was calm and strong. In many parts of the globe imperialist aircraft intrude into the skies but in Pyongyang and other parts of the DPRK the skies are free from imperialist aircraft , indeed visiting the Fatherland Liberation War Museum we saw the wreckage of the EC121 US imperialist spy plane shot down by KPA fighter aircraft on the 15th of April 1969.
   Our delegation left the UK on the 9th of April catching an Air China flight to Beijing . We found China to be quite chaotic as the Chinese would not help us get to our hotel  and when we finally made it to the hotel we were told that it was the wrong one ! . More chaos ensured the next day when the Chinese airport authorities managed to delay our Air Koryo flight to the DPRK by about 2 hours. Finally our plane touched down at Pyongyang International Airport Sunan  Pyongyang International Airport is an example of a Juche-orientated self-reliant socialist airport which has struck the right balance . It is not over expanded . Sadly airports like Heathrow and Beijing are examples of globalisation where the airports have been expanded well beyond their natural capacity and beyond what is good and efficient . This is the fruit of trying to compete in the globalised world market . Both Heathrow and Beijing airports are too congested and overstretched to be efficient but at Pyongyang International Airport you can check in and 40 minutes later you are on your flight taking off .
  We were greeted at the airport by KASS section Kim Chol Ho who introduced me to our guide for the visit Miss Gil ,a graceful and dignified  looking lady who is a university teacher of English and life sciences at the famous and renown KIM IL SUNG University. A number of delegations arrived the same day as us such as the Finnish and Polish delegations. Overall over 90 delegates from over 20 countries participated in the events organised by the Korean Association of Social Scientists. There were delegations from  Bangladesh, Belgium, Brasil, Czech Republic , Democratic Congo , Finland, Ireland , Japan, Luxemburg, Mexico, Poland , Mongolia, Nepal,Pakistan , Russia ,Thailand , Turkey and the Ukraine. No one can say that the DPRK is isolated !
                                     

  After a drive through Pyongyang we arrived at the splendid Pyongyang Koryo Hotel where I had stayed many times before. We found that the hotel had been completely renovated and revamped , it is was quite unrecognisable from when I had stayed in it last September , there was a new seating area on the ground floor and the international communications desk had been moved from the 1st floor to the ground floor. We were able to relax over a cup of coffee in the ground floor tea shop .
Of course it is not just the Koryo Hotel that has changed. Everywhere in Pyongyang there is construction work and the new Ryomyong Street has been completed . We are able to see this for ourselves. We saw futuristic looking buildings , some of them 70 stories here . Last April when I was in the DPRK  Ryomyong Street was just a construction  basically bare earth with lorries moving about . Really Ryomyong Street is not a mere street but is as big as a small city or town . Mirae Scientists Street which was completed at the beginning of 2016 has not only flats but also shops, clinics and a hospital. We were told that Professor Ri who was our guide in April 2012 was moving into a new flat in Ryomyong Street which was provided  free of charge by the state.
                             
  We also saw the new Orphans Primary School which had been newly constructed and opened this year . It is next to the Pyongyang Orphans Secondary School. In capitalist societies orphans are usually forsaken and orphanages are horrendous places where all kinds of abuses and crimes are committed against children. However in People's Korea orphans are regarded as valued members of society and given the best things . We went around the school and saw modern equipment .The school was very clean and free from graffiti and vandalism that one sees in English schools. Indeed the schoolchildren are most patriotic and devoted to their country  we saw pictures urging the children to collect scrap iron to help the armed forces. We saw here that it is a lie about "starvation" and "malnutrition ". Recently the capitalist media in several countries carried propandaistic reports alleged "malnutrition " in the DPRK , however we saw the dining room and kitchen , there was plenty of healthy food such as a fruit and vegetables. Indeed food in the DPRK is mainly fresh rather than unhealthy processed food. The school also had its own clinic with doctors and nurses ,treatment facilities and even beds . This was in contrast in schools in the UK which usually do not have medical facilities in them , however some UK schools have their own police officers stationed in them ! . The school also had excellent sports facilities.
                                     
   Care for children and people-oriented policies were also evidenced by the excellent Okryu Childrens Hospital which was built 2 years ago and stands opposite the famous Pyongyang Maternity Hospital. We are were told this has a total of 32,000 sq metres of floor square ,making it quite large . In fact larger than many UK hospitals. We were only able to see a small part of the hospital as there was not enough time. However what we saw was most impressive . The hospital was positively ornate with marble floors and pillars. The hospital was decorated in light colours which gave a warm and cheerful atmosphere to the place. In my country hospitals are usually regarded with fear and apprehension but this hospital seemed such a welcoming place. We saw rooms for rehabilitating disabled children. There was a school within the hospital so that children do not miss schooling when they are in the hospital . We also saw a telemedicine room , here the hospital is linked to other children's hospitals in the country so doctors in different hospitals can consult with each other instantly. This shows that the DPRK has a high level of technology and that is a fast moving society .  I asked my guide Miss Gil if there were waiting lists for the hospital , she replied that people can be admitted straight to the hospital without having to wait . We told her that in the UK there are waiting lists for hospital treatment and she said but surely people can die that way , we told her that this had indeed happened. There were no cutbacks or austerity at this hospital. All treatment is free of charge. Needless  to say BBC correspondent Rupert Wingfield-Hayes  slandered this hospital when he visited it but we could see that what he said was untrue . Also that the reports about malnourished children are false .
   Are all public and cultural facilities in the DPRK are run to a high standard. No visit to Pyongyang is complete without a trip on the Pyongyang Metro. This is the cheapest and deepest in the world. I was told that an annual travelcard costs less than  1 dollar , compare this to £,1800 for a 1 to 4 zone travelcard for London , the difference is nearly 2000 times. We also visited the Pyongyang Metro Revolutionary Museum which is near to Ryomyong Street. The last time  I visited this Museum was 1993. I liked visiting partly because I find transport history interesting and also because it is a classic DPRK museum. Here we learnt of the history of the construction of the Pyongyang Metro , the first stage of which was completed in 1973 and also the guidance given by the great leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG Il to the construction of the Metro. I believe that comrade KIM IL SUNG gave guidance 500 times to the construction of the Metro. We saw the converted bus that he used to visit the Metro whilst it was under construction .There was an excellent diorama showing the construction of a tunnel which had red flags and revolutionary slogans.
  During our visit we were able to have several long walks across the centre of Pyongyang . The atmosphere was really calm .The streets were immaculately clean . There was no impression of tension or pressure,
   Undoubtedly the high point of the visit was the April 15th grand military parade and mass civilian demonstration. That day rain had been predicted but instead the weather was bright and sunny leaving us with a slight sun tan . The parade was attended in person by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , chairman of the Workers Party of Korea and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK . Before the parade started vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the WPK comrade Choe Ryong Hae made a speech which pointed out that "  The U.S. is creating the phase of a war while resorting to frantic nuclear war provocation moves against the DPRK, the speaker said, stressing that if it makes reckless provocation, the Korean revolutionary armed forces will immediately mount an annihilating blow and answer an all-out war in kind and a nuclear war with Korean-style nuclear strike.". The parade was most disciplined, precise and yet at the same time enthusiastic and buoyant. We saw detachments of armed university students marching. The DPRK has an all-people defence system so that in the event of war everyone will take up weapons and fight the US imperialists to the last person.
 For the first time we saw special forces troops of the Korean People's Army equipped with the very latest gear . I am convinced that the Korean People's Army could liberate south Korea and reunify the country finally ending the existence of the reactionary ,decadent anti-people fascist puppet regime of south Korea.  We also saw Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles and massive ICBMs thundered by. After the military it was the turn of the civilians who staged a most colourful mass parade tangibly demonstrating the unity of the people around the leader and Party . There were slogans about defending socialism , about the Juche idea and about self-development first . When the civilian parade finished dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN waved to the audience , we broke into rapturous applause , the respected Marshal waved to us , his face looked bright and happy , his smile was like the sun giving life to the people, indeed dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is the sun of the 21st century .
   I attended an excellent open air Art Performance in celebration of the 105th birthday of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG at the Rungna Peoples Pleasure Park. It was my first time to attend an open air concert in the DPRK I enjoyed the concert particularly a spirited performance of the song "Lets Defend Socialism". There was also a nice song and dance routine "standard bearers of self-development .I also attended a wonderful circus performance at the Pyongyang Circus in Kwangbok Street.
    Our delegation participated in the Joint Friendship Gathering at the Pyongyang International Football School. Our term did not do too well in the games but our delegation gave our own rendition of the Korean revolutionary song "We Follow Only You "(this was produced at the time of the defeat of the anti-party counter-revolutionary modern factionalist group). There was a real internationalist atmosphere at this event as some delegations formed collective singing groups together such as the Russians, Poles and Czechs. This disproves the idea that the DPRK is “nationalist” and “isolationist”.
 Our delegation visited the KIMILSUNGIA-KIMJONGILIA exhibition on the banks of the River Taedong not far from the Juche Idea Tower. We saw our own entry to the KIMILSUNGIA festival . Our delegation also paid respects to the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and comrade KIM JONG IL at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun.We also visited the birthplace of the the great leader President KIM IL SUNG at Mangyondae.
                                     
  We participated in the seminar on the Juche idea at the People's Palace of Culture on the 14th of April . This was addressed by the secretary general of the Korean Association of Social Scientists comrade Ri Song Chol . Speakers from Mexico, Japan, Finland , France , Russia and Nepal addressed the seminar. I made a speech on behalf of the UK. In speech I pointed out that "Seeing the great achievements of Juche Korea which are made despite the unprecedentedly harsh sanctions and blockades of the US imperialists and other hostile forces we have been become even more firmly of the absolute truth of Juche, believing that it is the ideology that everyone should follow. There is no doubt that the Juche Idea is the most revolutionary anti-imperialist idea that shows the way to independence and liberation as well as the building of a new society that is free from exploitation , oppression ,domination and subjugation . The Juche Idea is valid not just for the Korean people or the third world but for also for the people of the imperialist countries as well. The imperialists and reactionaries oppose the Juche Idea but its attraction is growing stronger and stronger even though the enemy does everything to obstruct the study of the Juche Idea....These days the independence of Juche Korea has come under harsh and abnormal attack by the US imperialists as well as the big power chauvinists and international revisionists, who had betrayed the cause of socialism and long time ago. The US imperialists and their followers have imposed sanctions after sanctions either through the UNSC or independently. Together with their south Korean puppets they have carried out large scale military exercises against the DPRK .


 On the 16th of April a gathering of older and younger followers of the Juche idea was held at which our comrade David Munoz UK KFA Organisation secretary made a speech along with young Juche idea followers from the Ukraine, Russia and India.
  Our delegation were each awarded with the double portrait badge of the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL by KASS vice secretary general Choe Kang (our old friend). We also met comrade Kim Ki Nam vice chairman of the Workers Party of Korea  at the state banquet. I was greatly impressed to be received by the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly comrade Kim Yong Nam at the Mansudae Assemby Hall which houses the Supreme Peoples Assembly of the DPRK (the basic lawmaking body of the DPRK) . Comrade Kim Yong Nam had a talk with the heads of delegations and we were served with a refreshing cup of insam tea. Our delegation also participated in the meeting of the International Preparatory Committee  and the excellent banquet hosted by the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries which was presided over by Mrs Kim Jong Suk chairwoman of the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries . We also met the KIM IL SUNG-KIM JONG IL International Foundation .
   Our delegation also called on the Pyongyang Mission of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front of south  Korea(AINDF), the underground revolutionary organisation of south Korea which upholds the great Juche idea. We conversed the head of the mission comrade Zo Il Min in a friendly and cordial manner. The highpoint of any visit to the DPRK is to meet the AINDF. We were shown videos showing the just struggle of the south Korean people against the corrupt and despotic Park Geun Hye regime and also the aggressive warmongering exercises of the US imperialists and south Korean puppets as well the struggle of the south Korean and world progressive people. We had a discussion on how to best support and invigorate  the struggle of the south Korean people and the AINDF for independent reunification. We were entertained with a wonderful meal including the excellent kochugang hot pepper sauce .
   Militant anti-imperialism was very much an integral part of our visit . We visited the Fatherland Liberation War Museum which details  both how the US imperialists provoked the Korean War and the defeat of the US imperialists. We also visited the new expanded and reconstructed Sinchon Museum . I had visited it in October 2015 but it was the first time for the other members of my delegation to see it. Here we learnt in graphic detail of the barbaric and sub-human atrocities committed by the US imperialists against the innocent Korean people. We saw anti US posters and the song "Death to the US imperialist aggressors " was being played  over the PA system as background music. I addressed a revenge pledging gathering of Korean people becoming the first foreigner to do so.
                                   
   The trip to visit Sinchon afforded an opportunity to see the provincial city of Sariwon and the countryside . Construction work is not only carried out in Pyongyang but in local towns and cities. Sariwon and the surrounding countryside seemed to bustling with people . We even saw a traffic jam on a rural road. The imperialists and reactionaries like to mouth about "hunger in the north Korean countryside" but we saw no such thing , no one starving or begging . In fact I was surprised to see a woman with a big bowl of strawberries at the roadside . My guide told me that I must be mistaken but then she saw it . This was something new. We visited the Migok Co-Op farm . Here were were told that the farm produces 10 tons of grain per jongbo (roughly equivalent) to a hectare which is a very high yield and certainly disproves allegations about crop failure and famine that are peddled incessantly the hired hacks of imperialism and the bourgeoisie.
We visited the same farmhouse visited by the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL in 2006. It had two storeys .There was a television and a computer . The house was very clean. To me it seemed superior to the farmhouse I visited in Brasil in December 2016. The imperialists also allege that the DPRK has restored or is restoring capitalism in agriculture, however we saw red flags proudly fluttering over the fields and slogans like "Long live the great Juche farming method !". Leaving the socialist countryside of the DPRK behind I concluded that it would be a nice place to go sit and read a book in the sun and go to sleep  as it was truly idyllic and tranquil unlike noisy and chaotic London !
  It was a great visit which we thoroughly enjoyed and would have liked to stay much longer ! Cheerio Juche Korea ! See you again soon !

  We congratulate the DPRK and Worker's Party of Korea on another success in the field of ballistic missile technology  !
  The latest ballistic missile test shows that the DPRK under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is holding fast to the line of independence, Songun and socialism. The DPRK is not affected by the US and UNSC sanctions , it is bravely defying the threats and intimidation of the US imperialists and other hostile forces.
 We believe that the test-fire of the Pukguksong-2 strategic missile will greatly augment the defensive capacity of the DPRK and bring the day of independent reunification nearer .

US OUT OF KOREA !
LONG LIVE THE KOREAN PEOPLE'S ARMY 
LONG LIVE JUCHE !
LONG LIVE SONGUN !

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Refutes U.S. Act of Faulting DPRK's Test Launch of Strategic Missile

Pyongyang, May 23 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday over the fact that the U.S. and its followers are faulting the DPRK's test-launch of strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2:

    The officials in the field of national defence science and technology and the workers in the munitions field of the DPRK successfully carried out the test-launch of ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2 amid continued measures for bolstering the nuclear force of the country.

    As reported, the recent launch was aimed to finally confirm the technical specifications of the overall weaponry system of Pukguksong-2 series and fully examine their adaptability to various combat conditions before their deployment for action.

    This is part of the normal process for bolstering the military capabilities for self-defence and a process that has to be gone through for deployment.

    But the U.S. and its followers again published a UN Security Council press statement peppered with such rhetoric as "sanctions" and "denunciation".

    We flatly reject the press statement taking the advantages of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK.

    Nothing favorable can be expected from the U.S. and its followers obsessed by inveterate repugnancy and hostility toward the DPRK. But it is absolutely ridiculous to see them finding fault with the DPRK's every measure for self-defence.

    The DPRK substantially displayed the capabilities for mounting a nuclear attack at Hawaii housing the U.S. pacific forces command and the Pacific operational theatre including Alaska, and has built full capabilities for attacking the U.S. mainland, the stronghold of aggression.

    The U.S. and its followers' despicable act of taking issue with the DPRK's measures for bolstering nuclear force will only result in increasing our hostility to them and furthering the efforts to diversify and modernize our own nuclear force. -0

Inheriting the spirit of the May resistance

Inheriting the spirit of the May resistance
On May 18 1980, students and citizens of Gwangju launched a nationwide resistance against the US colonial rule and fascist rule of the military junta.
Memorial services for the victims of the May 18 Gwangju Popular Uprising took place in Gwangju and different parts of south Korea on the lapse of 37 years after the uprising.
A candlelight-eve for honoring the memory of the martyrs of the uprising was held in Gwangju on May 17, with the attendance of more than 5 000 people including bereaved families, religionists and members of civic organizations.
The participants sang in chorus the song "March for Dear Ones" and a performance depicting the final resistance on May 27 1980 was given.
All military fascist gangsters including Chun Doo-hwan who slaughtered the martyrs, those who took Baek Nam-gi’s life and those who bred ferry Sewol disaster should be punished, the executive chairman of the April 16 Family Association stressed at the meeting.
They hardened their determination to join hands in the action to uproot all social evils left by the former regime.
On May 18, a commemorative meeting took place in Mangwol-dong cemetery of Gwangju with at least 10 000 people in attendance.
The truth of Gwangju massacre should be brought to light and social democracy should be realized in the spirit of the May 18 resistance and the candlelight revolution, they asserted.
Similar events were held in Seoul, Busan, Daegu and other parts of south Korea.
The speakers at a rally held in Gwanghwamun Plaza said that the May resistance in 1980 developed into the candlelight revolution to unseat the Park group eventually.
Nearly 40 years have passed since the uprising, but the wish of the south Korean martyrs has not yet come true.

The south Korean people would surely build a new society where the popular masses are masters of it through more energetic action, wiping out the US and its sycophant forces.

RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF PEOPLE’S KOREA AND HWASONG -12 TEST



                                 


                                   
RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF PEOPLE’S KOREA  AND HWASONG -12 TEST
This meeting congratulates the Democratic People’s Republic of the Korea, its government and the Workers’ Party of Korea on the successful test-fire of the Hwasong-12 missile .
 The test fire of the Hwasong-12 rocket is the proud fruit of the Juche and self-reliance as well as a testimony of the overwhelming correctness of the Songun(military-first) policy.
This meeting fully reiterates and confirms it support for the right of People’s Korea to self-defence including nuclear deterrence. The US imperialists have 1,000 nuclear warheads stationed in south Korea . The nukes of the DPRK are self-defensive.
Furthermore  we wholeheartedly condemn the sanctions  and threats of the US imperialists and their followers including the marionette  UNSC against People’s Korea. We also condemn the sanctions imposed by fake socialist countries and big powers.
Solidarity with People’s Korea against US imperialism must be stepped now !
            


NO TO WAR IN KOREA-DEFEND PEOPLE'S KOREA ! PICKET THE US AND SOUTH KOREAN PUPPET EMBASSIES !

                   
 

 The fascistic Trump administration is threatening the DPRK with aircraft carriers and now apparently increased UNSC sanctions(well we have just been to the DPRK and seen that the sanctions have zero effect , absolutely zero effect) . Trumps threats against the DPRK are a disgusting example of a big power trying to bully a small country into submission with its strength.

                                           



Support the UK KFA Picket Against US and south Korean warmongering and threats against People's Korea !
                           


 The US imperialists have sent a 2nd Aircraft carrier to Korean waters and are piling on sanctions . The change of regime in south Korea has so far made lno difference and south Korea is continuing to take an anti-DPRK line and also grovelling to the US !
Thursday 25th of May - No to THAAD , for independence and reunification ! 3.30 outside the south Korean puppet embassy London

KCNA Commentary Refutes "Story of North's Manipulation of Cyber-attack"

Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- The conservative media of south Korea are spreading misinformation about the DPRK over the Ransomware cyber-attack that occurred in various countries.

The pseudo media including Yonhap News, Seoul Economic Daily and KBS are putting it that there is assertion that the north is behind the ransomware hacking that attacked the world and that the code of virulent virus that caused the recent incident is similar to that used by the hackers' group suspicious of having linkage with the DPRK.

This is dirty and despicable smear campaign.

Explicitly speaking, the recent story about the "north's manipulation of the recent incident" is pursuant to the conservative forces' bid to tarnish the image of the DPRK making steady victorious progress and to quench the demand for improving the north-south relations mounting significantly high among south Koreans.

The group of conservatives faulted the DPRK for no reason as they are afraid of the independent country bolstering its might while displaying the vitality of its socialist system despite the hostile forces' harsh sanctions and pressure.

That's why they cooked up the clumsy farce in order to internationally isolate the DPRK after branding it as a criminal and chill the atmosphere for the improvement of the north-south ties.

Utterly ridiculous is the movement of the pseudo-media getting clamorous about the "north's behind-the-scene manipulation" to the tune of the conservative forces' racket for escalating confrontation with the DPRK.

By origin, the south Korean forces are apt to blame the DPRK whenever something deplorable happen either inside and outside.

At times of Choenan warship sinking case, case of breakdown of network of peasants' association, Wonjon hacking case, March 20 hacking case, GPS jamming case and drone case, they groundlessly linked them with the DPRK only to be disgraced after the disclosure of truth.

They are obsessed to the extremes with smear campaign and fabrication.

There are strong voices commenting that the recent case can not be seen as an act done by the north and the code might have been imitated to make them look like the north's.

It is only the south Korean puppet forces out of many countries and regions that have fallen victim to the recent cyber-attack that are relating the case with the DPRK.

Instead, lots of experts of the world are blaming the U.S. for the case.

However, even the puppet military are chiming in the puppet media, getting themselves busy putting on a higher alert the "posture for shielding cyber-attack information theatre".

The smear campaign of the puppet conservatives would only reveal their wretched plight finding themselves in the worst fix, forsaken by the nation.

Those who are behind the "story about north's involvement in the cyber-attack" will be made to pay a dear price for their crimes.

The group of conservatives and pseudo-media serving it should not run wild, clearly mindful that no mercy will be shown for those keen on tarnishing the dignified image of the DPRK. -0-

Kim Jong Un Supervises Test-fire of Ballistic Missile

                                                       









































Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, supervised a test-fire of ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic missile Pukguksong-2.

    The test-fire of Pukguksong-2 was aimed to finally verify all the technical indexes of the weapon system and thoroughly examine its adaptability under various battle conditions, before its deployment at military units for action.

    The Supreme Leader issued an order to launch the missile at the observation post.

    Together with officials, he analyzed the results of the test-launch and expressed his great satisfaction over them, saying it is perfect.

    Saying with pride that the missile's hitting accuracy is very high and Pukguksong-2 is a successful strategic weapon, he approved the deployment of this weapon system for action.

    Now that its tactical and technical data met the requirements of the Party, this type of missile should be rapidly mass-produced in a serial way to arm the KPA Strategic Force, he said.

    He set forth the strategic tasks for bolstering up the country's nuclear force.

    He expressed belief that the national defence scientists and workers at the munitions factories intensely loyal to the WPK would produce better and more Juche weapons, nuclear offensive means of Korean style.

    He had a photo taken with all the national defence scientists, technicians, workers and officials who carried out the successful test-launch.

    Accompanying him were Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Jong Sik, Jong Sung Il, Yu Jin, Jo Yong Won and other senior officials of the C.C., WPK and General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the KPA Strategic Force. -0-
