Pyongyang, May 16 (KCNA) — The news about successful test-fire of ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 fills Pyongyang citizens with great pleasure and joy.
In this regard, Yun Kwang Hyok, a student of Kim Il Sung University, told KCNA:
I felt refreshed and satisfied while seeing the successful rocket test-fire.
I extend warm congratulations to officials, scientists and technicians in the field of rocket research who demonstrated the might of the self-reliant defence industry all over the world again by developing the Korean-style ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket.
Han Chol, a Pyongyang citizen, said:
I am very proud of being a citizen of the DPRK which has towered as a nuclear power in the East and a rocket launching power in Asia.
My country came to possess another “Juche weapon”, a perfect weapon system. The truth of history says that genuine peace and security cannot be achieved through humiliating solicitation or compromise at the negotiating table and the destiny of the country and nation is to be defended only by its own effort.
My country, which was deprived of its national rights by foreign invaders and reduced to their colony in the past, is now demonstrating its dignity as a nuclear power worthy of the name, which ensures peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and the region.
If the U.S. awkwardly attempts to provoke the DPRK, it will not escape from the biggest disaster.
