Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) — Upon receiving the news of the successful second test-fire of intercontinental ballistic rocket Hwasong-14, the people in the DPRK are wrapped in great pleasure.
In particular, a festive mood pervades Hamhung, Nampho, Sariwon and Anju cities and other parts of the country and industrial establishments including the Hwanghae Iron and Steel Complex and Sangwon Cement Complex.
In this regard, Jong Chun Mo, a war veteran, told KCNA:
My homeland is, indeed, a world military power which has brought about a series of world-startling events.
After the victory in the Fatherland Liberation war, it has developed into a nuclear power and world-level rocket power possessed of A-bomb and H-bomb as well as ICBM.
I extend the greatest glory and heartfelt thanks to respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, who adds luster to July 27, the war victory day, on behalf of war veterans.
Ko Kyong Chan, head of a work-team of the April 5 Pit at the Kumgol Mine under the Komdok Mining Complex, said:
While I and my work-team members are enjoying the tour of Pyongyang thanks to the loving care of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the respected Supreme Leader, together with defence scientists, brought about the auspicious event by waging a life-and-death struggle for the sake of the country and people.
We, miners, will hold up our powerful country with increased ore production, having the pleasure of another successful ICBM test-fire.
