WPK solemnly declares its immutable will to react to enemy’s nuke and full-frontal confrontation in kindNovember 19, 2022
The DPRK strategic forces test-fired a new-type ICBM on November 18 amid the strict implementation of the top-priority defence-building strategy of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the DPRK government on steadily bolstering up the most powerful and absolute nuclear deterrent.
The test fire was conducted under the intolerable condition that the reckless military confrontational moves of the US and other hostile forces persistently driving the military and political situation on the Korean peninsula to the red line have gone beyond the limit and hypocritical and brigandish sophisms have been justified even in the UN arena to brand the right of a sovereign state to self-defence as provocation in every way.
Jo Yong Won, Ri Il Hwan, Jon Hyon Chol, Ri Chung Gil, Kim Jong Sik and other senior officials of the WPK Central Committee watched the test fire in the presence of the General Secretary.
The test fire was aimed at checking the reliability of the weapon system and its operation.
The new-type ICBM Hwasongpho-17, launched at Pyongyang International Airport, travelled up to a maximum altitude of 6 040.9 km and flew a distance of 999.2 km for 4 135s before accurately landing on the preset area in open waters of the East Sea of Korea.
The test fire clearly proved the reliability of the new major strategic weapon system to be representative of the DPRK’s strategic forces and its powerful combat performance as the strongest strategic weapon in the world.
Encouraging the successful test fire,
The recent dangerous situation in which the US and other hostile forces’ military threats get ever more undisguised around the DPRK more urgently requires it to substantially accelerate the bolstering of its overwhelming nuclear deterrent, he pointed out.
Stressing the need to show more clear action under the present situation in order to make the US, south Korea and other vassal forces be aware that the military counteractions against the DPRK lead to their self-destruction and they have to reconsider a wise choice to improve their security environment,
He solemnly declared that if the enemies continue to pose threats to the DPRK, frequently introducing nuclear strike means, our Party and government will resolutely react to nukes with nuclear weapons and to head-on confrontation with all-out confrontation.
Referring once again to our Party’s defence-building strategy for steadily bolstering up the nuclear strategic weapons, he urged the defence scientific research sector to put more vigorous spurs to the development of Juche-based strategic weapons of a Korean style and the ICBM units and all the units for the operation of tactical nukes to intensify their training with high vigilance so as to perfectly discharge their important strategic duty in any situation and at any moment.
All officials and scientists in the sector of the defence science and combatants of the strategic nuclear weapons units vowed to absolutely worship and remain intensely loyal to
