Pyongyang, September 29 (KCNA) — Vladimir Tolstikov, chairman of the East European Centre for Support and Solidarity with the DPRK and chairman of the Russian Association for Friendship and Cultural Cooperation with the DPRK, on a visit to Korea pointed to the successful launch of “Kwangmyongsong No. 1,” an artificial satellite.
The successful launch of the first artificial satellite in the DPRK is a great event which gives great joy to the Korean people and the world’s progressive peoples but fears to the enemy.
It is very wonderful that the DPRK ranks with a few big powers which have the technology of manufacturing and launching satellites.
The space science and technology have been developed and its industrial foundations laid in Korea under the wise guidance of the President Kim Il Sung.
I am sure that as led by General Secretary Kim Jong Il with outstanding organisational ability, military talents and brilliant intelligence, the DPRK could successfully launch the satellite.
Now the west and Japan are making much ado about the satellite launch in the DPRK. No matter who says this or that, the DPRK will advance with its own faith and guts and will win the final victory without fail.
