Pyongyang, April 9 (KCNA) — The DPRK succeeded in the ground jet test of a new type high-power engine of inter-continental ballistic rocket designed and produced by the scientists and technicians in its field of national defence.
Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, issued an order to conduct the ground jet test of a new type high-power engine of inter-continental ballistic rocket and personally came to the Sohae Space Center to guide the test.
He gave an order to start the test.
The moment the engine spewed out huge flames with deafening boom.
The results of the test proved that the high-power engine, designed and manufactured by the scientists and technicians in the field of national defence with their own efforts and technology in the Korean style, satisfied all scientific and technological indexes.
He was greatly pleased with the results of the test and highly praised the scientists and technicians for having brought about another epochal event in demonstrating the dignity and the inexhaustible power of the great Paektusan nation by putting into practice the intention and will of the party to adorn the Seventh Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea as a golden age in bolstering up the Juche-oriented national defence.
The great success made in the test provided a firm guarantee for mounting another form of nuclear attack upon the U.S. imperialists and other hostile forces and made it possible to have access to more powerful means capable of reacting to nukes in kind, he noted, adding: This is an eye-catching event which demonstrated our national defence capability before the world and another great victory achieved by our people in the drive for glorifying the Seventh Congress of the WPK with unprecedented successes.
Now the DPRK can tip new type inter-continental ballistic rockets with more powerful nuclear warheads and keep any cesspool of evils in the earth including the U.S. mainland within our striking range and reduce them to ashes so that they may not survive in our planet, he said, stressing the need to diversify nuclear attack means at a higher level to cope with the ever-more increasing nuclear threats and arbitrariness of the U.S. imperialists and thus decisively counter nukes in kind.
He expressed great expectation and belief that scientists and technicians in the field of national defence would give full rein to their inexhaustible creative efforts true to the party’s line of simultaneously developing the two fronts and its plan for building the nuclear force and thereby bring about manifold changes in the development and production of Juche-oriented weapons and bombs capable of firmly guaranteeing the ever-lasting future of Kim Il Sung’s nation and Kim Jong Il’s Korea and remarkably reinforce the nuclear arsenal of the Supreme Command.
He was accompanied by Ri Man Gon, department director of the C.C., the Workers’ Party of Korea, Jo Yong Won, Hong Yong Chil and Kim Jong Sik, vice department directors of the C.C., the WPK, and General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the KPA.
