Pyongyang, January 20 (KCNA) — Iranian and Japanese figures made public statements hailing the DPRK’s first successful H-bomb test.
The chairman of the Al Hadi Islam Propaganda Organization of Iran stated on Jan. 10:
The DPRK ranked itself among the advanced nuclear weapons states by succeeding in the H-bomb test, a noteworthy event that demonstrated the inexhaustible military power before the world.
The H-bomb test is a measure for self-defense the DPRK took to protect the sovereignty and dignity of the country from the U.S. ever-increasing nuclear threat and blackmail and firmly ensure the peace in the Korean Peninsula and security in the region.
It is a gangster-like logic that the U.S. criticizes the DPRK’s access to the nuclear weapons even though it is the unique country that used A-bombs and has stockpiled lots of nuclear weapons.
I fully support the statement of the DPRK government on the first H-bomb test.
Takashi Nada, representative of the Ehime Institute for Contemporary Korean Issue in Japan, said on Jan. 7:
The DPRK has ranked itself among the nuclear powers by succeeding in the H-bomb test.
It is legitimate for the DPRK to make a choice of access to nuclear weapons in defense of the national sovereignty and dignity from the U.S. vicious nuclear threat and blackmail.
I respect the Korean party and people making a dynamic advance, upholding the line of simultaneously pushing forward the economic construction and the building of nuclear force.
